Obama talks to Boehner on budget and immigration
26-28, 2011. It has dropped as low as 38% in the first term of his presidency. Meanwhile, Obama’s disapproval rating was up to 50%. Overall, it was a 7-point swing from the previous day. In the Real Clear Politics average of nine recent polls, Obama’s approval rating languishes at a putrid 43.3% seven months into his second term. His average disapproval rating is 51.1%, for a net negative of 7.7. Here’s a look at how much his approval rating has swung after highs in late December and early January:
Obama announces aid initiative to help wounded veterans
Army ranger who suffered a severe brain injury in Afghanistan and has slowly been on the mend. The war in Afghanistan may just be ending, but for Cory and our disabled veterans, the work has only just begun, he said. Obama also used his appearance in Orlando to discuss two policy and political challenges he is facing in Washington: the deep across-the-board spending cuts known as sequestration, which exempts the Department of Veterans Affairs, and challenges to his health-care law. Going forward, the best way to protect the VA care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester altogether, Obama said. He also urged veterans not to be hoodwinked by those claiming that the Affordable Care Act will affect the care they receive from Veterans Affairs.
Summers might have an inside track simply had to do with a bunch of attacks that I was hearing on Mr. Summers preemptively, which is sort of a standard Washington exercise that I don’t like,” Obama said. Summers served as the head of the National Economic Council during Obama’s first term and Treasury secretary under President Bill Clinton. Bernanke’s current term ends on Jan. 31.
Will Democrat Voters Support Obama’s Suspension Of Democracy And Calculated Deception?
Independent analysis also found that the proposed Obamacare individual health insurance premiums in Oregon for 2014 are 66% higher on average than for 2013 today, and that the proposed Obamacare individual health insurance premiums in Washington state for 2014 are 80% higher on average than for 2013 today. Moreover, the Obamacare premiums insurance companies are proposing today for 2014 are based on the assumption that younger and healthier workers will buy the Obamacare insurance as required by the individual mandate. They are going to be sorely disappointed in that, and many are going to be scrambling to raise premiums even more the following year just to survive. They are going to be shocked as well by the employment market reorganization just now beginning to evade the employer mandate as well. In addition, the Obamacare insurance that companies are proposing for the Exchanges are sharply restricted as to the doctors and hospitals covered by the insurance. That is necessary to keep the premiums they are proposing from soaring even more next year. That means if you think that under Obamacare if you like doctor, you can keep your doctor, you and millions of other consumers are going to be sorely disappointed as well. Not to mention the docs that are going to start phasing down their practices under Obamacare. And did Obama talk about choices under Obamacare? There are no real choices under Obamacare. You have to buy the health insurance the government mandates you to buy, covering what the government says it must cover, and you actually have no say in the matter. Under Obamacare, you have only three choices, bronze, silver, or gold, which means paying a lot more, a lot lot more, or a lot, lot, lot more. Obama added further at his White House Obamacare circus event, Just yesterday, state officials in New York announced that average premiums for consumers who buy insurance in their new marketplace will be at least 50 percent lower next year than today. To mislead people about whether this would be replicated nationwide, Obama emphasized, Think about that50 percent lower.So if you already buy insurance on the individual market, meaning that you dont get insurance through a big group plan through your employer, that could mean thousands of dollars a year that can go towards paying a mortgage, or putting a kid through college, or saving for retirement. But New York had already imposed on its individual health insurance market 20 years ago even more draconian and costly regulation than Obamacare. Moreover, after 20 years of that regulation, with guaranteed issue and community rating assuring everyone no matter how sick they became while uninsured that they could still get insurance at standard rates, costs were driven up further by adverse selection. The younger and healthier dropped out of coverage altogether, while those who waited until they became very sick and costly to get coverage were sure to sign up. People could even wait until they got sick to sign up, and drop coverage again when they recovered. As a result, New York already had the highest individual health insurance premiums in the nation.
Obama says he has range of candidates to lead Fed
The two talked shortly before the [House] went on recess, Carney added. I think it was within the last week. Boehners spokesman, Michael Steel, told The Daily Caller on Sunday that the talk took place, but he declined to provide any details. Early this year, Boehner swore off future closed-door negotiations with Obama, after Obama used his post-election clout, plus his allies in the media, to force a tax increase through Congress. The political fights this fall are expected to be critical for the president, whose declining approval ratings fell to 41 percent late this week, only 3 points above his record low in mid-October 2011, according to Gallup.The poll , which averages 1,500 daily responses over three days, also showed a 51 percent disapproval rate. Unless Obama scores a real or symbolic political victory this fall, his ratings may decline enough to wreck his ambitious political plans and ruin his chances of winning a Democratic majority in the House in November 2014.
