I watched President Obama's final SOTU address.
When touting his economic successes, President Obama suggested that anyone who suggested that America's economy was in decline was "peddling fiction."
Frankly, Obama's final address to Congress could be summed up as just that -- peddling fiction. His whole presidency could be described in that manner whether one wants to cite "if you like your health care, you can keep it", "ISIS is the Jayvee squad" or "red lines in Syria."
He was peddling fiction when he spoke of 18 million signed up for Obamacare. Most of those are Medicaid sign ups and a lot of others are those who lost their health insurance because of Obamacare in the first place. How many people who are signed up to Obamacare are paying higher premiums and getting less care?
Obama was peddling fiction when he said he wanted to cut red tape. This from an administration which adds thousands of pages to the Federal Register every year especially where it concerns energy and the environment?
