WAPO: Paul Ryan’s Presidential Stock is Rising

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) does not get a lot of buzz these days about the 2016 presidential nomination. That is in part by design. In focusing on policy issues and his transition to the Ways and Means Committee chairmanship, he lets others take on the bright, hot light of media attention and criticism. But his stock is nevertheless rising as a potential candidate. Here are 10 reasons why:
1. The return of Hillary Clinton and her shopworn ideas remind us what a stark contrast a Clinton vs. Ryan matchup would be: The tired liberal past against the new conservative reformer.
2. He is one of the few Republicans who avoids getting vilified either by the tea party or the establishment.
3. In a time of economic troubles and foreign policy turbulence, he brings much more experience than any of the freshmen GOP senators who are likely to run in 2016. He is, by any account, a serious person who has thought through public policy for years.
4. He has already been vetted and come up “clean” by the Romney campaign.
5. The criticism that he is not a charismatic figure, although overblown in my mind, is also now a bit of a blessing. The country has found out the hard way what a razzle-dazzle talker can be – a lousy president.

Ryan is about the only candidate I would find easy to support right now.

The ObamaCare Framework is CORRUPT

Obamacare's hurting Economic Growth
Obamacare a Catastrophe Like No Other

______________________________________

Obama LIE of the YEAR award:

IF you LIKE your insurance policy, you can KEEP IT.
No, wait.

IF you LIKED your policy,
it was probably WORTHLESS anyway.
Scratch that.

IF your JUNK policy was CANCELED
and you still want it, you can KEEP IT.
Er, get it back. Whatever.

______________________________________

ObamaCare is REPEALABLE, and should be REPLACED
with a PLAN to cover the uninsured and REDUCE COSTS.

ObamaCare INSTITUTIONALIZES CORRUPTION
and pays for it with your PREMIUMS.
...................................................................................

ObamaCare’s author had an ulterior motive:
forging a PERMANENT Democratic MAJORITY.

ObamaCare creates a HUGE INFRASTRUCTURE
for enrolling millions of people not just in insurance
but also for food stamps, housing assistance and
other welfare programs — and registering them to vote.

Here are the pillars of this CORRUPT SCHEME.

None of the minor fixes Republicans are discussing
comes even close to sweeping away this CORRUPTION.

Obamacare: Death by Paperwork

http://nypost.com/2014/07/09/obamacare-death-by-paperwork/


__________________________________________

ObamaCare restricts CHOICES and INCREASES COSTS.

Are employers hiring PART-TIMERS
to AVOID Obamacare COSTS ?
Obamacare is prompting a shift to PART-TIME positions.
....................................................................................

How ObamaCare will kill job-based plans
....................................................................................

The financial-research firm forecasts that 90%
of Americans who now have employer-sponsored
coverage will lose it by 2020.

Thanks to an ObamaCare-fueled
INCREASE in health COSTS, employer-sponsored
coverage may soon become a thing of the past.

Businesses are considering DUMPING
their LEAST-HEALTHY employees onto the exchanges.
By doing so, they can LOWER their own premiums —
and stick taxpayers with the tab
for covering their MOST COSTLY workers.

Offloading workers onto the exchanges
could pay huge dividends.

Firms will be hard pressed to leave these savings
on the table — especially as their COSTS shoot up.
