*Obamacare delivers sucker-punch to middle class
*Doctors, hospitals expect Obamacare confusion
*Still more Obamacare cancellations than sign-ups
(Some see these cancellations as an “imposition,” AP would say.)

*Obamacare ‘cheerleader’ can’t afford coverage for herself, her toddler
(More ignored irony!)

Meanwhile, The News’ “news”
*Selling Obamacare to ‘young invincibles, AP, p. 7A – Another freeObamacare ad in The DMN — faxed from The White House, via AP!
*Catholic groups win [Obamacare] birth control exclusion, WashPo, p. 1A; (subhead) First day of coverage is quiet in ERs, p. 7A – Good for the nuns – but the real story here: WashPo proclaims Day 1 of Obamacare a success!! Yes — “Hospitals nationwide reported a relatively slow day, without any surge of newly insured people filling emergency rooms with pressing medical needs.” No matter it was New Year’s Day — when half of America sleeps till 3 p.m. — WashPo has a reliable sample!! Plus, WashPo wants us to believe it knows how things went at “hospitals nationwide!” Hahahahahaha! And this: “The White House reported no problems.” The WHITE HOUSE reported no problems?Really? And that statement has credibility WHY? … Here’s what we’re being set-up for, grasshoppers: we’re now to look just TWO places for our health care info: the left-wing news media and Dear Leader’s White House. Good luck, America!
*U.S. economy off to a running start for 2014, McClatchy, p. 1A – Clip-and-save this one too, friends. Suddenly — we have a “robust recovery,” says The News’ subhead!! … Anyone else notice that since Dear Leader Obama’s approval rating achieved whale-excrement level, we’ve seen a flurry of good economic data from his minions — including a massively boosted third-quarter revision — and a flurry of good economic “news?” … McClatchy here opens,“For the first time since 2007, the U.S. economy is starting the new year on strong economic footing amid a flurry of signs that point to firming recovery.”Folks, there’s no way an economy that’s $17 trillion in debt, that’s runningoceans of deficit spending, that’s still being propped-up by tens of billions of dollars each month, that’s handing over 1/6th of itself to Obamacare, that boastsrecord food-stamp spending and stunningly low work force participation is on“strong footing.” THAT is a fantasy. (BTW, none of the above is mentioned in this story.) … And see below, a headline you’ll not see in The News:
money/personalfinance/2014/01/ 01/cnbc-recovery-slowed- economy/4222929/
*Boehner signals wiggle room on [illegal immigration], NYT, p. 1A – This gives “advocates for change new hope,” swoons The Times. Has anyone ever seen tea partiers called “advocates for change” in The DMN? Me neither. … Don’t j-schoolers jes’ looooove them some Boehner now? Why, overnight, he’s no longer a “terrorist,” an “extortionist.” (Hate to tell you media types, but all Boehner has “signaled” is he’s about to “wiggle” his ass out of a job. Enjoy him while you can.)
*Airlifts planned from [Antarctic] ice, AP, p. 10A – Still, neither AP nor The News will tell you these are “global-warming” scientists and fellow alarmistsstuck down there in the ice. It’s just a “research ship” here, and this Chris Turney, he’s just the “expedition leader.” Hilarious.
