Thursday Short Cuts

The BIG Lie: “If your family gets insurance through your job, your family is paying, on average, about $3,600 less per year than you would be if the cost trends that had existed before the law were passed had continued.” —Barack Obama

Income redistribution files: “All of the headlines are full of the stories that average premiums are going up 22%, but the subheadline is if you’re in the health care program, your subsidies will go up too, so the increases won’t be as much.” —Bill Clinton

The Legacy Project: “[T]he African-American vote right now is not as solid as it needs to be. … I need everybody to understand that everything we’ve done is dependent on me being able to pass the baton to somebody who believes in the same things that I believe in. So if you really care about my presidency and what we’ve accomplished, then you are going to go out and vote.” —Barack Obama

Non Compos Mentis: “I’m telling you people — Hillary Clinton is living the black experience. She’s never been found guilty of committing a crime — and still, still, she’s had to suffer through having an intimate relationship with law enforcement.” —Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah

Demo-gogues: “Maybe he’s not in the right job.” —Nancy Pelosi castigating FBI Director James Comey

“I do not have confidence in [James Comey] any longer. … To restore my faith, I am going to have to sit down and talk to him and get an explanation for why he did this.” —Chuck Schumer following suit

Self-control: “We’ve got to be nice and cool, nice and calm. All right, stay on point Donald, stay on point. No sidetracks, Donald. Nice and easy, because I’ve been watching Hillary in the last few days and she’s totally unhinged.” —Trump memo to self

And last… “During a campaign speech in Columbus, Ohio, Obama said that America has to ‘get over the hump’ and elect its first female president. Obama said, ‘[T]here’s a reason why we haven’t had a woman president before…’ Yes, there certainly is, Mr. Obama, and you are one of the reasons. You beat Hillary Clinton in 2008!” —Gary Bauer
