The Wages Of Obama Come Due!

A scant two months after his re-election, Americans are being forced to pay the piper.  Said pipe currently being played by Barack Obama, who is leading all of America off a cliff, much like his fables forerunner in Hamelin.

But hey - I'm not angry about it anymore.  It's kind of funny, to watch every warning conservatives offered come to pass, and see Obama voters scratch their heads and utter animal-like grunts of bewilderment.

First, we had the inaugural paychecks of 2013, which virtually every working citizen found to be...a bit light, despite assurances to the contrary.  As I mentioned last Friday, my medical deduction went up as well....and apparently, I wasn't the only one.

The New York Times is befuddled:

Health insurance companies across the country are seeking and winning double-digit increases in premiums for some customers, even though one of the biggest objectives of the Obama administration’s health care law was to stem the rapid rise in insurance costs for consumers.

Particularly vulnerable to the high rates are small businesses and people who do not have employer-provided insurance and must buy it on their own.

Perhaps it is because they take the words of the Kremlin - sorry, the White House - at face value:

As a result of the review process, federal officials say, rates were reduced, on average, by nearly three percentage points, according to a report issued last September..

You see?  It is funny!

But if you like jokes, the biggest one was played on the Jews, who somehow still believed, after all the evidence of their eyes, that Barack Obama was a friend of Israel.  With the looming nomination of Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary, well...the Jews will get the anti-Semite they deserve:

The flavor of the accounts is given in a headline in one Jewish website: “Nebraska Jews Recall Senator Chuck Hagel as ‘Unfriendly’ and ‘Unmovable’ on Israel, ‘Didn’t Give a Damn About the Jewish Community.’” The former editor of the Omaha Jewish Press recalled that “Hagel was the only one we have had in Nebraska, who basically showed the Jewish community that he didn’t give a damn about the Jewish community or any of our concerns.” Another community leader commented that “During his last year in office, we knew he was not going to run again, he never returned any of our calls.

And there's this now-infamous remark:

A meeting with officials of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), which sought to keep USO Haifa open, was described by Marsha Halteman of JINSA to the Washington Free Beacon.

He said to me, ‘Let the Jews pay for it....I told him at the time that I found his comments to be anti-Semitic.

A pro-Iran, anti-Israeli anti-Semite?  He's Obama dream Sec of Def.  Don't complain, my fellow Jews - you are the ones who gave Obama the "flexibility" he so craved...

And for any law-abiding American with a gun who voted for Obama, well...prepare to fork it over.  Any dumbass who believed him when he said this -

“I believe in the Second Amendment. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away… But I am not going to take your guns away. So if you want to find an excuse not to vote for me, don’t use that one because it just ain’t true. It ain’t true.

- is probably too stupid to own a gun anyway.  Either way, the Second Amendment that Barack Obama claimed to so fervently believed in is now about to be circumvented by...Barack Obama:

If new gun control measures don’t pass the Senate and House, the game is far from over. The Obama administration is investigating the possibility of executive orders reclassifying semi-automatic firearms as class 2 weapons, thus doing by fiat what the legislative branch rejected.

So what did we achieve with Barack Obama's re-election?  Higher taxes, higher health insurance premiums, anti-Semites in high office, and restrictive gun control.

And "Inauguration Day:  The Sequel" is still weeks away.

Pay the piper, America.  You voted for him, and he's giving you exactly what we said he would.

At least I'm gonna die laughing...
