    ObamaCare price hikes hit 'red states' hardest

    Experiencing sticker-shock at the price of insurance on ObamaCare exchanges?

    That's more likely if you live in a "red state" that didn't vote for Obama, according to price data compiled by the Heritage Foundation. In red states, premiums for 27-year-olds rose an average of 78% on ObamaCare exchanges, whereas in "blue states" that voted for Obama, premiums rose a smaller 50%.

    Senate critics of ObamaCare say the difference is one way in which the bill is unfair.

    Re: ObamaCare price hikes hit 'red states' hardest

    [The ACA] also hit red states harder because their dip**** governors/legislatures refused a crapload of federal money aimed at providing medicaid to more people. In between your state's horridly-low medicaid threshold and 100% of the FPL? Hah, you're ****ed! Thank your red state. I'm sure they'll help you find some boot straps. They've been doing such a great job at that with their conservative values so far.

    Re: ObamaCare price hikes hit 'red states' hardest

    On the eve of the 2010 midterm elections, President Obama accidentally summed up his governing philosophy in an interview with Univision: "[W]e're gonna punish our enemies, and we're gonna reward our friends ..."

    This is the cornerstone of politics in Obama's adopted hometown of Chicago. It is also one of the few promises Obama has actually kept.

    Just look at the Obama administration's treatment of utility giant Exelon Corp., which has had Illinois' legislature (and especially Obama's old state Senate mentor, Emil Jones) wrapped around its finger for years. An Exelon lobbyist once referred to the company as "the president's utility." One of Obama's top fundraisers sits on Exelon's board. Obama's top political adviser, David Axelrod, worked as an Exelon consultant. Obama's former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel helped create the company through a merger when he was an investment banker. Exelon is one of Obama's oldest "friends."

    Umm, the lip-sync isn't too good on that phony excerpt. I'm not lip reading expert but my Mother was deaf so we learned how to "lip-speak" in my family.

    And yes, when you get elected, you do reward your friends (thousands of pages worth) but I don't see how you "punish your enemies" unless you believe Obama sets rates in each state.

    You know that reality is bad enough that making **** up doesn't help your argument, if anything, it diminishes it because then everything looks like a lie even when it is the truth.

    Just saying...

    it is not a lie you can argue over context if you want but it is not a lie claiming he said punish your enemies and reward your friends

    your own article has him saying just that

    "If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, 'We're gonna punish our enemies, and we're gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us' -- if they don't see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election -- then I think it's going to be harder.
