'Obama-station' Debuts in Detroit, Seventy Planned

the battle over Obamacare rages in Washington, the White House is quietly
using a little known provision of the law to roll out a nationwide network
of free gas stations for minorities and the poor.
According to
a report in The Detroit News this morning, the
administration is using its authority under the Affordable Care Act to
"improve transportation routes to hospitals" to dispense gasoline free of
cost in disadvantaged neighborhoods.

$2 billion-a-year program aims to
distribute 40 million gallons of free gasoline each year through 70
new gas stations constructed in major metropolitan areas. The Department of
Health and Human Services (DHS) will be responsible for operating the
network, whose first station opened yesterday in Detroit.
"It's not
something we're publicizing very much, for obvious reasons," explains Dori
Salcido, assistant DHS secretary for public affairs. "But under the law we
are well within our rights to offer this service, and we think it's good
public policy.

"How are
people supposed to get to the doctor's office if they don't have gas in
their cars? Health insurance is worthless if you can't make your

use some free gasoline too."

unlikely to be able to use the service.

access to the station is determined by income," says Ebony Jackson, manager
of the first Obama-station. "But it's pretty unrealistic to do an income
check on each and every driver. So what we do is basically let all the black
people pump for free, and charge all the white people the market

Obama-stations scandal was uncovered by Nolan Finley , a conservative
Detroit News columnist widely lauded for his groundbreaking
exposé on Obamaphones. Finley says the blatant racial bias in the
program is only one of its many outrageous aspects.
stations have Obama campaign logo on them and giant photos of the
president," he explains. "He's trying to buy votes ahead of the
midterm elections. This is something you normally only see in third world
countries. I've never been more scared for our democracy."
And the United States is a representative
Constitutional republic, not a democracy, and there is a big

government is determined to destroy all stable systems. ... hborhoods/
