As many as 20 million Americans could lose their employer-provided coverage because of President Obama’s healthcare reform law, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said in a new report Thursday.

The figure represents the worst-case scenario, CBO says, and the law could just as well increase the number of people with employer-based coverage by 3 million in 2019.

The best estimate, subject to a “tremendous amount of uncertainty,” is that about 3 million to 5 million fewer people will obtain coverage through their employer each year from 2019 through 2022.

Obama’s Values Spark Return of Culture Wars

In 2007, while still a member of the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama said, “I am absolutely convinced that culture warsare just so ‘90s. Their days are growing dark.”

Until recently, I’ve been inclined to agree with Mr. Obama. The culture wars are over. We lost.

We’re no longer fighting to uphold traditional social values. Now we’re fighti

ng a battle over the very definition of what it means to be an American, and what America means to the world.

But it turns out the president himself has reignited the culture wars he so smugly declared were passe.

Like most leftists, Mr. Obama assumed his values and opinions had become the norm (think, “The science is settled” and other pronouncements of opinion as fact).

When, two weeks ago, he arrogantly announced the Health and Human Services directive requiring all employers (or their insurers) to provide free contraception, sterilization and abortifacient drugs as mandatory provisions of health care coverage, Mr. Obama must have quite naturally assumed his edict would go unchallenged.  read more

Americans for Prosperity

Obama slams Americans for Prosperity

Want to know the difference the conservative grassroots movement is making?

President Obama, his poll numbers down in the dumps because of his big government agenda, is now making shrill, desperate attacks on Americans for Prosperity and our 1,200,000 AFP grassroots activists across the nation – folks like you.

Here’s what the President said:

“Right now all around this country there are groups with harmless-sounding names like Americans for Prosperity, who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates all across the country. And they don’t have to say who exactly the Americans for Prosperity are. You don’t know if it’s a foreign-controlled corporation. You don’t know if it’s a big oil company, or a big bank. You don’t know if it’s an insurance company that wants to see some of the provisions in health reform repealed because it’s good for their bottom line, even if it’s not good for the American people.”

The President and his friends on the Left are back to accusing you and me of being front groups for “foreign-controlled corporations” or for “big banks” or a “big oil company” – how sad and outrageous.

Let President Obama know folks like you are an American for Prosperity!

The President is right about one thing – Americans for Prosperity is running ads across the nation urging Americans to call their member of Congress to tell him or her that they better stop supporting big government legislation like the health care takeover, cap-and-tax, and yet more big bloated spending. Click here to see some of these ads.

We need your help to continue to fight back against President Obama and his radical agenda. Please consider contributing $10, $25, or $50 to keep our ads on the air and educate citizens about Obama’s dangerous policies.

Take heart — the President is attacking grassroots activists because he knows, and the Left knows, we are making a crucial difference – that’s why we need to keep the pressure on.

Commit today to doing your part to make sure our fellow Americans send a powerful message to the President and the rest of Congress on behalf of freedom and prosperity.  Please forward this to five friends and let them know we are under attack from Left and we need their help to fight back.

We’re making a difference. Let’s keep up the fight!
