Fact Check: Pres. Obama: ‘We’re Better Off’ and ‘No WH Scandals?’

by Net Advisor

WASHINGTON DC. We have had the unique opportunity to research and write about any claims and statements made by the political parties over the last 8 years. We have raised issues with both parties and policies that conflict with the law, and the failure to hear the people.

When the People of the United States feel they are not being heard, most get out and vote. Some people as we have seen increase over the last 8 years choose to riot, loot/ steel, burn vehicles, other property that was NOT theirs, and attack those who are here to protect all of us – called police.

President Obama appeared on CBS 60 Minutes on January 15, 2017. If we were paid to fact check every statement, it would probably be a 70 page report when providing citations. Unfortunately we aren’t paid to cover that time in a report for a President who is going to be out of office in 4 days.

So we will address a couple key points that President Obama stated.

  1. That we are better off then we were 8 years ago when Obama came to office.
  2. That there were no scandals in the White House which we refer to his Administration in total.

[1] Are we better off than we were 8 years ago?

One can argue that then economy was in recession when Obama took office, and arguably the worst recession since the depression. Many people have called it “The Great Recession.

It is true that we were losing jobs at a rapid rate in a shorter period of time, that banks, insurance companies, mortgage companies and other business either collapsed or were near collapse.

Economies or large multi-national businesses don’t collapse over night. It took years of both bad business decision making, government polices, (further) consumer speculation (housing), and a Federal Reserve (rocketing interest rates 425% in 2 years) that created the”Perfect Storm” that negatively impacted people, the economy and the markets.

We can’t blame Obama for the time he was not in office, but we can look at the results of his policies while he was in office.

“By almost every measure, the country is significantly better off than when I came in. If you can look back and say, The economy’s better. Our security’s better. The environment’s better. Our kids’ education is better…”

— President Barack Obama, CBS 60 Minutes, Jan. 15, 2017 (PDF, P7 highlighted)

The results include:

Civilian Labor Force Participation Rate Lowest Since About 1978.

So more people in the U.S. are not working today than we had during the worst of the Great Recession.

More People in America Are on Food Stamp Welfare Under Obama

Consumers are having to borrow more to just keep up living. This should be HUGE concern for president-Elect Trump. Cutting taxes for especially the Middle-Class and lower income can help relive debt by allowing consumers to keep more of their own earned money.

U.S. Home Ownership Rate Lowest Since 1965

With record consumer debt, people can’t afford homes like they once did. If the trend continues the risk is real estate prices will have to come down or else fewer people will ever own homes. With the Federal reserve raising interest rates again, the will put more people out of the home buying market and risks negatively impacting higher cost real estate and other consumer loans.

Student Loan Debt at an All-Time High

If the economy was so much better, why are student strapped with record debt and fewer job opportunities? Did we tell you that the Obama Administration took over the student loan program away from private banks and put the risks on tax payers.

Healthcare Costs Have Soared and the “Affordable Care Act” has not Worked

The “Affordable Care Act” (ACA) or ObamaCare was passed by in a highly controversial way in 2010. Just in the first four years following Obamacare, the U.S. government spent $10.6 Trillion on healthcare. Medicare specialty drug costs up 45.9% just in 2014 alone.

http://www.netadvisor.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Net-health-insurance-personal-costs-USA.png

The result of government ran healthcare: More Americans are uninsured since the passage of Obamacare. We have offered 10 solutions to help address some of the healthcare issues.

More Americans Living in Poverty, Worst Since 1959

We have addressed this record poverty issue based on U.S. Census Bureau data in more detail here.

Official Unemployment/ Underemployment at 9.7%

For years we have challenged the government’s math on the U.S. unemployment rate.

Last October, I looked at the Bureau of Labor Statistics data. I calculated that if you take the U.S. population who are deemed able to work (The Employment Population) at 59.8%, then subtract 100%, you get 40.2%. This is the number of people in the U.S. who are part of the official Employment Population, and yet have no job.

As for how the economy grew, it barely budged. We first reported this in early 2016 and calculated an average Real Growth Rate of the U.S. economy of 0.47% a year.

The only major grow we say in the economy was the increase of the U.S. National Debt. As of January 12, 2017, the U.S. National Debt stood at exactly $19,941,807,383,847.05 (or rounded to $19.942 Trillion in debt). So from when President Obama took office to Jan. 12, 2017, the U.S. National Debt increased $9.136 Trillion or 87.67% in 8 years – more than ever U.S. President that preceded Obama – COMBINED.

In total, it is hard to say that we, by the economic numbers are better off than we were 8 years ago.

[2] President Obama: ‘There were no scandals in the White House.’

We refer to his Administration in total when counting scandals. If one only means sex scandals involving the President that were proven, then, that appears to be the correct answer. As for sex scandals in the Administration, there were a few that were reported:

Obama Admin Sex-Related Scandals

Mar. 25, 2010: SEC’s Porn Problem: 28% Gov Agency Visit Adult Websites at Work

Oct. 16, 2014: State Dept. Sex Scandals

Feb. 24, 2015: State Department official, 44 arrested for allegedly soliciting sex from a minor

Mar. 03, 2015: Government Can’t Fire Feds Who Spend Hours Watching Porn

Mar. 26, 2015: DEA agents had ‘sex parties’ w/ prostitutes hired by Colombian drug cartels

May 27, 2015: DOD Charges Millions at Casinos, Strip Clubs on Govt Credit Cards

We actually have an archive of over 22,000 major event files covering just the Obama years (and separately, coverage of  other Presidents and other major topics). If someone was interested in research for a book we have probably one of the most organized files by year, by topic, then sub-topic and by date. This doesn’t include a separate 4,500+ files on 907 topics covering elections, just to give you an idea on the depth of our research work. So there is a ton here we are leaving out to get the full picture. We just don’t have the free time right now to publish something that big. Here is a healthy broad sample of the last 8 years.

“…I’m proud of the fact that, with two weeks to go, we’re probably the first administration in modern history that hasn’t had a major scandal in the White House.”

— President Barack Obama, CBS 60 Minutes, Jan. 15, 2017 (PDF, P7 highlighted)
