Michelle Antoinette Obama?

Michelle Obama Criticized as "Modern-day Marie Antoinette" Over Spain Vacation

With an economy that is suffering, a healthcare plan that is unpopular, a financial reform that is getting more and more criticism, you would think the White House would be careful in the message it sends to the voters. It appears the message is "Eat, drink, and make merry."

Andrea Tantaros has penned a scorching editorial for the New York Daily
News deeming First Lady Michelle Obama a "modern-day Marie
for her vacation in Spain with her daughter.

"The First Lady is spending the next few days in a five-star hotel on
the chic Costa del Sol in southern Spain with 40 of her 'closest friends,'"
Tantaros writes, pointing to a CNN report that Michelle Obama and her group are
expected to occupy 60 to 70 rooms. "Not exactly what one would call
cutting back in troubled times."

Tantaros goes on to criticize the first lady for traveling abroad
instead of within the United States, something that would help the U.S.

We need to pass the bill to find out what's in it

And unfortunately we are now finding out what's in it and it isn't good.

To wit, the House voted last week to repeal one ObamaCare mandate. It
might have been the first part of the bill to go over the side, except Democrats rigged the vote so that it failed, even though it got a majority.

The target was an ObamaCare footnote that could wreak havoc with
more than 30 million small businesses. In the name of smoking out the illusory
"tax gap" of unreported business income, Democrats snuck in a
requirement that companies track and submit to the IRS all business-to-business transactions exceeding $600 annually
. This 1099 reporting detail received no scrutiny until the IRS's National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson
exposed the paperwork burden, which would produce no improvement in tax
compliance. ...

Democrats write all this and more off as "unintended consequences," but tell that to the intended victims.
The only way to fix ObamaCare is to get rid of it.
