Obama Hagan destroy US NC economies jobs healthcare, Obamacare and private insurance cost increases, Labor force plummets, Part time jobs spike, NC decimated by Barack Obama and Kay Hagan

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“One of the CBO’s most intriguing estimates is that by 2017 there will be 2 million fewer full-time jobs on the market than there would have been without Obamacare, and that figure could climb to 2.5 million by 2024.”…Market Watch February 4, 2014

“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

I have been planning an article about the impact of Obamacare, the rising premium costs and destruction of full time jobs.

Senator Kay Hagan supported Obamacare and has voted with Obama nearly every time.

Before revealing the NC job impact, here is breaking news from Charlotte, NC.

From the Charlotte Observer October 20, 2014.

Charlotte’s Section 8 housing wait list triples to all-time high

A new number has emerged to help define Mecklenburg County’s affordable housing crisis: 32,128.

That’s how many low-income people filled out applications in just five days to be on the waiting list for Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers: three times the number who applied for such rent help when the list last opened in 2007. The substantial jump caught housing officials off guard.

Equally surprising for the Charlotte Housing Authority is that 4,449 of those adults listed their housing status as homeless, a number that includes those in charity housing, extended stay hotels or living with a friend.

NC jobs situation?

In August 2008 the labor force participation rate was 65.2 percent.

In August 2014 60.5.

That is a 4.7 percent plummet!!

God only knows what the real unemployment rate is.

Especially with so many full time jobs being replaced with part time as a direct result of Obamacare.

From Prison Planet October 20, 2014.

“Obamacare Premiums Expected to Rise By Double Digits”

“Even though President Obama has delayed the open enrollment period for Obamacare until after the mid-term elections, word is starting to leak out about how much those premiums will rise — and it isn’t pretty.

One report says subscribers to the the Obamacare “bronze” plan — the cheapest healthcare offering under the Affordable Care Act — could jump nearly 14 percent in price.

In its analysis, Investor’s Business Daily reports that 40-year-old non-smokers earning 225 percent of the poverty level face a 13.9 percent hike. The analysis catalogued expected prices for the largest 15 cities in the nation, including Washington, D.C..

Bronze subscribers in Seattle will see the largest spike, with their premiums jumping by 64 percent, from $60 to $98 per month. In Providence, R.I., the plan cost is expected to soar from $72 to $99 per month, from $88 to $111 in Los Angeles, $100 to $122 in Las Vegas, and $97 to $114 in New York, according to the Washington Times.”

“Still, people across the country are already receiving cancelation notices from their health care providers. A wave of such notices went out last week in Colorado, a state with a tight Senate race. More than 22,000 Coloradans received cancelation notices in the last month — and nearly 193,000 more will lose their policies at the end of 2015, the Times reported.

In all, more than half a million people in the state have lost their insurance. And the scene is being replayed in states across the country.”

From commenter RMinNC October 20, 2014.

“YOUR NOVEMBER SURPRISE….

Taken from ATS this am….this man is not a happy camper…don’t check your mail box…you may have a November surprise too!
—————————————————————————————————–

” I have always been opposed to Obamacare. While in theory, providing healthcare to everyone is a novel idea, I don’t believe it’s realistic in a capitalistic society. So I finally got around to opening my mail from yesterday and there’s a letter from my current provider Humana, outlining any changes to my plan for 2015.
My plan isn’t a Cadillac plan. It covers me, my wife and 2 boys with an 80/20 plan with unlimited doctor visits at reasonable co-pays.
I almost fell over when I saw the premium is going to be raised from $520 a month to $877 a month. That’s a 68% increase and in no way is affordable.

I hope those mother f’ckers from Humana all get fired and that lying piece of trash Obama and anyone who supported his ACA are all voted out on their asses.
So much for if you like your plan you can keep it and so much for the proposed economies of scale reducing premiums. I knew that the ACA wasn’t going to end well, I just had no idea it would be this catastrophic financially.
All I can hope for is that the right takes over the Senate in a few weeks and do something to get rid of or mitigate this awful legislature.”.”

From the Guardian October 18, 2014.

“Ebola: Liberia deaths ‘far higher than reported’ as officials downplay epidemic”

“The true death toll from the Ebola epidemic is being masked by chaotic data collection and people’s reluctance to admit that their loved ones had the virus, according to one of west Africa’s most celebrated film-makers.

Sorious Samura, who has just returned from making a documentary on the crisis in Liberia, said it is very clear on the ground that the true number of dead is far higher than the official figures being reported by the World Health Organisation.

Liberia accounts for more than half of all the official Ebola deaths, with a total of 2,458. Overall, the number of dead across Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea has exceeded 4,500.

Samura, a television journalist originally from Sierra Leone, said the Liberian authorities appeared to be deliberately downplaying the true number of cases, for fear of increasing alarm in the west African country.

“People are dying in greater numbers than we know, according to MSF [Médecins sans Frontières] and WHO officials. Certain departments are refusing to give them the figures – because the lower it is, the more peace of mind they can give people. The truth is that it is still not under control.””

“Samura believes sexual promiscuity among westerners could play a role in the virus’s spread abroad. Almost immediately after the outbreak was reported in March, Liberia’s health minister warned people to stop having sex because the virus was spread via bodily fluids as well as kissing.“I saw westerners in nightclubs, on beaches, guys picking up prostitutes,” he said. “Westerners who ought to know better are going to nightclubs and partying and dancing. It beggars belief.It’s scary.”

He said another striking feature was that the ineffectiveness of years of aid had been laid bare: “Money has poured in from the west, but it has gone to waste. Ebola should make us think about how the west gives aid to Africa; aid has not been used to create a system able to cope with this challenge. Ebola has exposed the fact it is not working. That money has gone to waste.””

Incompetency or intentional?

You decide.

Another child has died from the Enterovirus D68 epidemic in this country likely caused by the entry  and dispersal of over 60,000 illegal alien children from Central America.

Barack Obama ignored the warnings from numerous health care professionals.

From AzFamily.com October 16, 2014.

“Phoenix infant dies from enterovirus”

“A Valley couple is reeling from the loss of their infant son, and reached out to 3TV after doctors confirmed enterovirus killed him.

3TV has learned that baby, Lancen Kendall, is one of 24 cases statewide that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is testing for the deadly D68 strain.

Lancen’s parents say he showed no signs or symptoms that he was sick and that he just didn’t wake up from a nap earlier this month. He was rushed to Banner Thunderbird Medical Center and, five days later, pronounced brain dead.

“The lack of warning is the scariest part to me. We didn’t know he was sick,” said his father, Kevin Kendall.

The death of their 5-month-old is still an impossible scenario for the couple. Their son always had a beaming smile and appeared healthy, they say, but doctors determined he was dying from a strain of the enterovirus.

“It’s kind of terrifying that it literally came out of nowhere,” said his mother, Kathleen Kendall.

State health officials tell 3TV that Lancen is one of 24 recent enterovirus cases statewide, but they can’t comment specifically about the cases only to say the CDC is testing them for the deadly D68 strain. The CDC referred 3TV back to the state for comment.”

From the Conservative Treehouse October 17, 2014.

“The True Story Of Enterovirus D68 is Not A Story of Surprise

Back in July of 2014 we outlined how the “surprise influx” of Unaccompanied Alien Children from Central America was not in actuality “a surprise”. We knew it was not a surprise because the Obama Administration was specifically pre-planning for an influx a full seven months before the story began to reach the headlines:

On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“.

Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000.

Obviously the key take-away was: How could DHS and HHS claim a surprise when they were specifically looking for contractors to handle a very specific number of UAC’s seven month earlier?”

From Virology Journal October 11, 2013.

“Background

Human rhinoviruses (HRVs) belong to the Picornaviridae family with high similarity to human enteroviruses (HEVs). Limited data is available from Latin America regarding the clinical presentation and strains of these viruses in respiratory disease.

Methods

We collected nasopharyngeal swabs at clinics located in eight Latin American countries from 3,375 subjects aged 25 years or younger who presented with influenza-like illness.

Results

Our subjects had a median age of 3 years and a 1.2:1.0 male:female ratio. HRV was identified in 16% and HEV was identified in 3%. HRVs accounted for a higher frequency of isolates in those of younger age, in particular children < 1 years old. HRV-C accounted for 38% of all HRVs detected. Phylogenetic analysis revealed a high proportion of recombinant strains between HRV-A/HRV-C and between HEV-A/HEV-B. In addition, both EV-D68 and EV-A71 were identified.

Conclusions

In Latin America as in other regions, HRVs and HEVs account for a substantial proportion of respiratory viruses identified in young people with ILI, a finding that provides additional support for the development of pharmaceuticals and vaccines targeting these pathogens.

BACKGROUND

Acute respiratory infections (ARIs) are a leading cause of acute illness worldwide and remain the most important cause of pediatric mortality”

All it takes is one mistake, one person diagnosed too late, in the middle of cold flu season, with enough contact with others.

From Bloomberg October 16, 2014.

“U.S. Ebola Cases May Exceed Two Dozen by November, Researchers Say”

“There could be as many as two dozen people in the U.S. infected with Ebola by the end of the month, according to researchers tracking the virus with a computer model.

The actual number probably will be far smaller and limited to a couple of airline passengers who enter the country already infected without showing symptoms, and the health workers who care for them, said Alessandro Vespignani, a Northeastern University professor who runs computer simulations of infectious disease outbreaks. The two newly infected nurses in Dallas don’t change the numbers because they were identified quickly and it’s unlikely they infected other people, he said.

The projections only run through October because it’s too difficult to model what will occur if the pace of the outbreak changes in WestAfrica, where more than 8,900 people have been infected and 4,500 have died, he said. If the outbreak isn’t contained, the numbers may rise significantly.”

““We have a worst-case scenario, and you don’t even want to know,” Vespignani said. “We could have widespread epidemics in other countries, maybe the Far East. That would be like a bad science fiction movie.”

The worst case would occur if Ebola acquires pandemic status and is no longer contained in West Africa, he said. It would be a catastrophic event, one Vespignani said he is confident won’t happen.”

Are Americans stupid enough to believe the reports coming from the US Labor Dept., the White House and the mainstream media.

Initial Claims for October 16, 2014 are the lowest since April 2000?

If you do you had better look closer.

The employment to population ratio has dropped 5.4 percent since April 2000.

If you lose enough workers and even more full time workers you are going to be less likely to have layoffs.

I.E. you have already pared the work force to the bone.

http://data.bls.gov/pdq/SurveyOutputServlet

Don’t take my word for this, look it up.

Oh, and by the way, there are 23,317,000 more people not in the labor force than in April 2000.

From CNN October 15, 2014.

“A second health care worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital who cared for Thomas Eric Duncan has tested positive for Ebola, health officials said Wednesday — casting further doubt on the hospital’s ability to handle Ebola and protect employees.

The worker reported a fever Tuesday and was immediately isolated, health department spokeswoman Carrie Williams said.

The preliminary Ebola test was done late Tuesday at the state public health laboratory in Austin, and the results came back around midnight. A second test will be conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

“Health officials have interviewed the latest patient to quickly identify any contacts or potential exposures, and those people will be monitored,” the health department said.

But the pool of contacts could be small, since Ebola can only be transmitted when an infected person shows symptoms. Less than a day passed between the onset of the worker’s symptoms and isolation at the hospital.

Official: Duncan should have been moved

An official close to the situation says that in hindsight, Duncan should have been transferred immediately to either Emory University Hospital in Atlanta or Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

Those hospitals are among only four in the country that have biocontainment units and have been preparing for years to treat a highly infectious disease like Ebola.

“If we knew then what we know now about this hospital’s ability to safely care for these patients, then we would have transferred him to Emory or Nebraska,” the official told CNN Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen.

“I think there are hospitals that are more than ready, but I think there are some that are not.””

“It’s easy to look back and realize what a jerk Hitler was. But at the time, Hitler looked pretty good to the German people, with the help of the media. He was TIME Magazine’s Man Of The Year in 1938. The German people assumed they were safe from a tyrant. They lived in a Republic, after all, with strict laws regarding what the government could and more importantly could not do. Their leader was a devoutly religious man, and had even sung with the boy’s choir of a monastery in his youth.”…whatreallyhappened.com

Forget the irresponsible actions of Barack Obama for a moment and the subsequent threats of Ebola and ISIS to this country.

We have an epidemic of Enterovirus D68 in this country and it is killing, crippling and making our children extremely ill.

We know for a fact that D68 was rare in this country prior to this year.

We know for a fact that Enterovirus D68 was found in the child population of Central America in 2013.

We know for a fact that there is no vaccine.

And we know for a fact that Obama was warned about not screening the illegal immigrant children for disease.

We also know for a fact that Obama requested help from governors  in dispersing these children all over the country.

We know for a fact that the children were dispersed all over the US.

Some areas of the country protested.

This is not your father’s Democrat Party.

Many people have supported Obama because of his skin color, white liberal guilt or just because of the modern day left agenda.

This is no different than supporting Adolf Hitler in the 1930’s because of his rhetoric about a greater Germany.

The Greensboro News Record presented one of the most irresponsible and apparently party line editorials that I have ever read recently.

“The United Nations counts 641,000 refugees living in Jordan and 609,000 in Turkey, thanks to Middle East conflicts.

Kenya hosts 534,000 refugees. Chad has 434,000 and Ethiopia 433,000. These are poor African nations.

In North Carolina, leaders in two counties have passed resolutions saying they don’t want any refugees, not one, from the crisis along the border with Mexico. “This issue is not of Brunswick County’s making, and is much larger than Brunswick County, and Brunswick County does not have the excess resources necessary for relief,” its resolution said. Surry County commissioners adopted a similar statement.

Brunswick and Surry are not among the four North Carolina counties listed by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement as having received 50 or more young people this year as part of the recent crisis. The four are Mecklenburg, 536; Wake, 188; Durham, 180; and Wayne, 55. The total for North Carolina is 1,648.

Opposition stems from concern that these children may be eligible to enroll in school and receive other government services. But their presence in North Carolina is not only a reality; it is a legal and humanitarian necessity.

They arrived at our border to escape dangers in their native Central American countries. This was not a matter of poor border security; they wanted to be taken into U.S. custody. Under a 2008 law, they are entitled to legal due process — an evaluation to determine whether they qualify for asylum. This takes months, if not years. In the meantime, many are settled with family members or other sponsors in every state.

Should they be crowded into concentration camps on the border, or should communities across the country share in the responsibility of caring for them? Any county can declare it had no role in creating the problem, but it’s an American problem. It belongs to all Americans.”

“So, perhaps we can emulate many poorer countries and share a little space with people who have nowhere else to go.”

Ever heard of Ellis Island?

Many of our ancestors were screened for health issues there.

Some were rejected.

Why? Because people had more damned sense then and we had real leadership.

Instead of blindly following the agenda of Obama et al, the News Record owes their readers an apology.

This is another example of irresponsible party ideology.

And it needs to stop.
