The Inglorious Exploits of Dear Leader, Episode 2
Our Dear Leader, President Obama, is back to the grind with an Executive Order, the HIV Care Continuum Initiative, in which he claims that the authority vested in him as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America empowers him to recommend HIV screening for all Americans ages 15 to 65. That’s right, all Americans, ages 15 to 65, must bow to the recommendations of Dear Leader and undergo their recommended HIV screening. Though the total number of Americans estimated to be living with HIV is just 1.5 million, with breast and prostate cancer both topping out at 2.762 million and 2.5 million apiece, Dear Leader is recommending HIV screening for all Americans 15 to 65.
Makes sense, especially given that cancer prevalence from all invasive cancer sites is estimated at over 12,549,000 Americans. Nevertheless, priorities are what Dear Leader says they are. With 600,000 deaths from heart disease annually, or 1 in every 4 deaths, it might make more sense to recommend screening for that health issue, but Dear Leader is fixated on HIV screening.
Dear Leader’s suspension of the Obamacare Employer mandate has yet to persuade small business owners to refrain from firing staff. According to the Washington Examiner, 74% of small businesses will fire workers or cut hours under Obamacare. Dear Leader is not worried, even though 61% of small businesses have no plans to hire new workers in the next year, because with 1 in 6 Americans on food stamps, the social safety net can afford even more applicants as the employer mandate approaches.
Dear Leader’s policies have resulted in universities cutting the hours of adjunct professors to 29, so as to avoid triggering the insurance mandate for their adjunct staff, many of whom are doubtless academics who supported Obamacare. However, Dear Leader has left the individual mandate in place, so that those who work fewer than 30 hours can have more of their money taken to pay for skyrocketing insurance premiums in his glorious exchanges!
Our Dear Leader is also on his way to shutting down the last coal-fired electricity plants in the United States, a move that will cost 760,000 jobs. This follows Dear Leader’s 131 major regulations during his first term, with $69.8 billion in new regulatory costs. Dear Leader told us back in 2008 that he would bankrupt anyone looking to build a new coal plant, and he is a man of his word.
The Inglorious Exploits of Dear Leader shall continue, and you will like it.
