In a news conference last week president Obama refused to give a direct
response to a simple question. On its own this is a nonissue as we’ve come to
expect this kind of response from “Every Man’s President”. During the press
conference Antonieta Cádiz with La Opiniόn asked the president if he
would veto a clean E-Verify bill that did not grant amnesty to undocumented
workers. The story which can be read here: http://americasvoiceonline.org/blog/entry/president_obama_sees_flaws_in_e-verify_renews_call_for_comprehensive_immigr/
is intriguing and worth a blog article on its own. However, the real story as I see it can be found on the three minute forty second video which can also be viewed at the above link.
Two minutes and seven seconds into the video Obama says, “E-verify can be an
important enforcement tool…what I don’t want is a situation in which employers are forced to set up a system that they can’t be certain works.”
I hope you caught that. The same man responsible for forcing a massively
expensive socialist healthcare overhaul on a nation drowning in economic
uncertainty is suddenly concerned with possibly inconveniencing American
citizens and businesses with an unproven system. Is there truly no end to the direct contradictions and hypocrisy with this man!? The administration’s 2000 plus page healthcare bill which neither the president nor a single lawmaker took the time to read, was in fact forced on the nation with no guarantee it would benefit anyone. In the words of the president himself, “employers are forced to set up a system that they can’t be certain works.”
E-VERIFY VS OBAMACARE
In the case of E-Verify, the president cites employers not being allowed to
hire legal Americans that the system may incorrectly flag as illegal and that
legal citizens may be deported as examples of the system not working. While
either of these outcomes would be unacceptable, I’ve got to think there could be
other safeguards implemented that would prevent the president’s worst case
scenarios. Fed safeguard number one: Take a look at your track record on
efficiency and success and then hand the entire concept over to the free market
to design and operate a system that works. If they were to do that they might
even inadvertently create a real job or two.
In the case of Obamacare the president will not acknowledge the potential for
failure. Despite countless examples of the federal government failing where the
private sector prospers, the nation was forced to accept Obama and Democrat
lawmaker’s claims that this time and with a plan no one fully understands they
can make it work. No one can convincingly illustrate how Obamacare will benefit the vast majority of Americans. No one can guarantee this plan will work. No one knows exactly what effects socialized healthcare will have on our Democracy. There exists no example in history of this type of system reducing healthcare costs without sacrificing quality of care, standard of living or both.
With all these unknowns and the fact that no man or woman on Earth fully
understands how Obamacare will operate, it would appear that Obamacare dwarfs the E-Verify issue in regard to uncertainty. This very real uncertainty toward the future created by Obama’s anti-job/anti-corporate/anti-industry policies including Obamacare is in fact one of the major impediments to economic recovery.
The uncertainty over Obamacare is having a crippling effect on the entire
nation as well as the world. The risks to the nation of making E-Verify ONE of
the tools used to control illegal immigration are non-existent by comparison.
It seems as if nearly every stance Obama takes on any given issue contradicts
a stance he has taken on another issue. As entertaining as Obama is with his
incessant double talk, direct contradictions and simplistic reasoning apparently
meant to convince the high school dropout segment of his base, I am more anxious to have this man out of the Whitehouse than I have been toward any elected official since I cast my first vote at age 18.
Call me kooky but I feel a revision back to the failed Euro-socialist
concepts the first Americans sought to escape would render everything since the founding of Jamestown in 1607 pointless.
