Obamacare slush money goes to CBS and WaPo

How much of this crap are we going to take? 

Two mainstream news organizations are receiving hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars from Obamacare’s Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) — a $5 billion grant program that’s doling out cash to companies, states and labor unions in what the Obama administration considers an effort to pay for health insurance for early retirees. The Washington Post Company raked in $573,217 in taxpayer subsidies and CBS Corporation secured $722,388 worth of Americans’ money.

“It is fine with me if they continue covering the ObamaCare debate,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Republican of Tennessee, in an e-mail to The Daily Caller. “When NBC used to cover energy issues, they identified themselves as a subsidiary of General Electric. CBS and Washington Post just have to disclose that they are subsidiaries of the Obama Administration.”

Deadline looms as president flees and dems whimper

Run, Bambi, Run

Obama says everybody should “act like adults” as he hightails it out of town to campaign, dragging his blanky, drooling, and mumbling dadadada.

This man is a joke.  And a coward to boot. 

I am so sick of hearing the democrats protest any cuts but it’s no wonder.  Look at their leader fleeing. 

It cannot be forgotten that we would have a budget right now if the democrats had done their job when they were in power. 

So shut the government down.  We could start with grounding Air Force One and if the president wants to go somewhere, let him pay for it.  The country is ready to deal with the financial problems and all the dems do is whimper and run and lie.   And in 2012 get rid of every last one of them.  Every last one.
