This morning while sitting in the Palm Beach International Airport awaiting my flight, I had an interesting thought about how common core math explains Obamacare.
As I understand it, common core math is not based on a student getting a correct answer, but just showing how they got an answer. Remind me never to cross a bridge built by an engineer trained using common core math. With common core math, if you can show how you came up with 12×10=100 you can pass — of course you will have difficulty with simple fiscal tasks, but then again common core math is ready-made for liberal progressives.
And that leads me to the symbiotic relationship between common core math and Obamacare. Yesterday President Obama stood before his darling little angels of Organizing for America — after all they are doing god’s work, freaking unreal. Obama was just ecstatic telling the gathering of mindless lemmings that due to their efforts they have 4 million signed up for Obamacare.Ok, here is where common core math steps in. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is on record stating that the goal for Obamacare signups by end of March was 7 million — oh yeah, she tried to say that number came from the Congressional Budget Office. I guess another part of common core is that lying equals the truth.
Of course, we have no way of knowing who has actually signed up or even paid — a minor detail indeed. But get this equation, the goal was 7 million, but due to the Obamacare rule, some 6 million Americans lost their healthcare insurance coverage as of October first as they were not compliant with the “law’s” standards. So actually, that put Obamacare in the hole for 13 million.
President Obama in one of his patented “I can change a law all by myself” moments, in December ruled that those previous “junk policies” were now ok and demanded they be restored. So how many of those 6 million have been restored Mr. President?So for all your little cherubim in Organizing for America, that 4 million number is about as empty and worthless as the MP3 full of speeches you gave to Queen Elizabeth. That number is reflective of someone who achieved an “A” in common core math.
So back to my trip – I’m traveling to Georgia today to speak at two County GOP events in Lee and Muscogee. I am truly excited to be going back to South Georgia where I have so many fond memories as a kid.After landing in Atlanta I will head down I-75 and will trek through Peach County (Ft. Valley) where my Mom grew up attended Ft. Valley State College (now University) and the resting place of my maternal Grandad. I am looking forward to getting some “real” pecan pie (pronounced PEE-can). Friday evening I will be over in Columbus Georgia — last time there I was blasting from C-130 aircraft as an Airborne and Jumpmaster School student at Ft. Benning back in 1984.
One good thing about being back down in South Georgia, they can sense bovine excrement, and the smell emanating from 1600 Pennsylvania is rather pungent.
