Obama-Care Is A Big Success

OK it is settled, Obama-Care is a big success, at least that is what the President has told us and if he tells us it is so, it must be, because Obama would never lie to the American people. There is something I do not understand, there are supposedly about three-hundred- fifteen million people in this country, there were supposedly over forty million people who were uninsured and over six million people supposedly had their insurance policies cancelled because of Obama-Care. So, because seven million people have signed-up for Obama-Care, that means it is a success? Something just does not compute.

The president says “this law is doing what it is supposed to be doing.” And he went on to thank the Democrats in Congress who pushed this law through. “They should be proud of what they’ve done,” he said. Again, something does not compute. Six million people lose their policies, that they were happy with I might add. People cannot keep their doctors or their hospitals. Their premiums have risen along with their deductibles and they are forced to take coverage that they do not want. Again, Obama says the law is working as it was meant too, well I guess that means the Democrats knew that those things would happen all along.

In his speech in the Rose Garden, Obama also said, “Under this law, the share of Americans with insurance is up and the cost is down,” but if you look at the stats that is not the case. Less people are now insured, while premiums and deductibles have risen, someone needs to make the President aware of that. He also said, “We didn’t make a hard sell,” while the total amount to be spent nationally on publicity, marketing and advertising will be at least $684 million, according to data compiled The Associated Press, including more than 400 interviews, celebrity and athlete endorsements and heavy use of social media to engage a younger audience. Now that seems like a pretty hard sell to me.

Obama also said, “The debate over repealing this law is over,” “the Affordable Care Act is here to stay.”

I got some pretty bad news for Obama, the debate is not over, because a majority of Americans are still against the law. What makes matters worse for Obama-Care is that people who are uninsured are turning against it as well. Americans without health insurance have never seen Obama-Care in such a negative light. Kaiser Family Foundation’s monthly health tracking poll found that in February, 56 percent of the uninsured view Obama-Care unfavorably. The percentage of uninsured with a positive view reached its lowest point since Kaiser began tracking reactions in March 2010 when Obama-Care was passed into law. Just 22 percent of uninsured Americans have a generally favorable opinion about the law.

Obama-Care is a terrible law, that is doing more harm than good and it needs to be repealed, but I think it will eventually crumble under its own weight. Democrats who are up for re-election are still running from the law, they will have to answer for voting for a bill that they did not even read and are now paying for that decision.

My biggest peeve is the mandate; the government should not be able to force people to buy any product. Anyway, I have always said, if this thing called Obama-Care is such a wonderful thing, why do they have to force people to buy it? If it is such a glorious thing, people would be running to buy it, not running away from it. It is a law that must be repealed.

  1. OCare is about as settled a topic as someone getting forcably raped because the person raped is weaker and being told to stay quiet and put up with the result.

    Message to Democrats — We don’t live in a Democracy, rather we live in a democratic republic with all sorts of checks and balances to prevent a majority mob from imposing it’s will on an unwilling minority.

    Many of these checks and balances have been and continue to be violated by willful purpose by the Ocrats — see above as the reason this all is unlikely to go away quietly.

  2. Obviously Obama is using a different English Language than most of us – Probably some Kenyan dialect! (Emo-speak!) It’s outstanding feature is its ability to MANIPULATE the truth on a minute by minute basis.

    Outstanding! Using this dialect no one ever tells a lie because in effect there is no such thing as TRUTH!

    Many people (especially in governement)use this dialect.

    Obie! I still use the old fashioned kind of English where truth and lie ARE distiguishable! And so do the majority of Americans! I write my Congressman repeatedly to IMPEACH your A__! And I encourage others to do the same. I do NOT accept that the Dems in the Senate are an obstacle.

    Article VI of the Constitution does NOT give the Federal Government supremacy and unlimited authority. It ties the Federal Government explicitly to the Constitution with these words “…made in pursuance there of…” to this Constitution and; “…any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the CONTRARY (of this Constitution) notwith-standing…”

    The liar-communists have been warping our Supreme Law of the Land to give themselves boundless authority. But if we know the TRUTH it shall set us free… dispite obie’s dillusions and nancey p.’s stupidity!

  3. Why would they be truthful about anything having to do with Obamacare. Like the fact it cannot sustain itself? And the fact their pundits continue to insist that rates are far more affordable when we know for a fact the rates for people actually working have dramatically increased. And how about the greatest lie told about ACA. That it isn’t really Marxist. That this is how insurance is supposed to work.

    Incorrect. ACA is the epitome of Marxism. It takes from one man to provide for another. With auto insurance if I wreck my car my rates go up. And one doesn’t have cheaper rates based on his income. Obamacare is Marxism. One who is less successful is sustained by those who pay more.

    Deception is also a propagated tactic of Karl himself. This isn’t theory of maybe Barry will lie. He already has. He said people could keep their plan.
    That didn’t happen—on a massive scale. He said premiums would be cheaper—they have increased on a massive scale. Unless you are a welfare recipient or
    illegal invader—why then it is free. Or if you decided to be a videography major and are making now 20K a year in Hollywood as the first “success story”
    made its way through the net.

    So should I believe him now? Probably not. What I do believe will happen is we will soon collapse as a nation. Not because my fiction says so—because history says so. Barry just hammered the final nail into our coffin. We can’t sustain ACA. The entitlement class is enrolling and the working and youth are not. And we already have 17 trillion dollars of debt with no intention of rectifying it.
    So sure Mr. Progressive, everything will be fine, I’m certain. See you on the battlefield.

  4. I have to thank you Chris from the deepest regions of my heart for this plumb. Asking Obama to be honest is like asking Satan to be good. Obamacare is here because Justice John Roberts lacked the balls to be honest in his decision on behalf of the American people, but he sold his soul to Obama’s handlers. With the outpouring of Brilliance and wisdom from Obama, all of the Congress and Senate combined we would have been better served electing Honey Boo Boo to do it all.

    That says a lot for us as well. Why because we all know the problem but where do we find a solution? Go look into a mirror, because we are the solution if we act together. Barry has not hammered the last nail in any coffin any more than Tojo or Adolf did.
    The Constitution is still ours and Barack Obama will piss all over it until WE stand up and say that enough is enough. I mean seriously, do we all think that We The People is just some lame statement like Under God, or does it still have meaning? Of course that would be up to us. Do we have to go back the movies for our mustard, to Hollywood? Rise and rise again until lambs become Lions, or as Maximus put it, Stand as one and we will live. Or maybe we should be like the U nicks of China who carry their worth in a bag as they serve their master. On that only the listener can be the judge.

    We are not Rome or it’s empire, nor are we Sodom. I will not become the salt shaken upon their next meal either. Commidus is not a moral man, nor is Barry and it is just that simple. I say render unto Ceasar the things that are Ceasar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. We are governed in freedom and liberty which are predisposed as natural law or the law of God. But in any case for a free people a true faith in any higher power would not include the shackles of tyranny nor would it seek to oppress the majority, unless the were a motive with an agenda. Is this what America wants? unless we change it, that’s whats for dinner…you!

  5. Please note that “under God” is not stated as a lame statement anymore than “We the People.” My point is that they would have us believe that they lack merit simply because they command the pulpit. Proud and honored Americans die every day in defense of these words.
