‘ObamaCare’ step toward communism

Published 12:21am Sunday, October 20, 2013

ObamaCare is Obama’s first step in turning this country from a democracy to a communist country.

He should be impeached and this individual mandate should not go through.

If he is allowed to put this through, he will go after our guns next, which will enable him to fulfill his communistic agenda. We as the people need to stop him now.

The rollout of the program has been a disaster. Liberals like Joe Manchin want the delay of the individual mandate.

People who voted Obama in are already being sent to the poor house because of the hike in health care costs.

Congress exempted itself from the mandate for big business and with all the things considered I covered above, delaying it is what is best for the country.

Democrats to blame for ‘ObamaCare’ flaws

The best thing that happened to Republicans was the Democrats who held out for “Obamacare.”

This will really hurt the Democrats the next time it comes up for a vote, as the people will know just how many jobs that have been lost, and what price they will pay just to have insurance.

That is if you are not one of the 30 million that aren’t able to have it.

When you have to work two part-time jobs, not one 40-hour job, and have to buy a new insurance policy, or pay much more just to keep your present policy, you will learn that Obama’s lies about keeping your present policy and the price going down is nothing but a fable in his mind.

Or when you pay a penalty for not having insurance that you can’t afford, then vote Democrat and show your support for all those Democrats who you voted for.

Remember, you can’t blame this on any Republican, or George Bush.

It’s all Obama.

    Will someone please educate James on what Communism is. And to Homer, John Stuart Mill used the phrase “a marketplace of ideas’. Homer , please keep writing your op-eds. I do not agree with anything you say, but it allows thinking people an opportunity to seek the truth and knowledge.

    Mickackers, everything you say is with etiquette and factual. But 2 of these in one day, especially on Sunday, I find odd. Keta is right about that. She deals with the obscurity of all this with humor and sarcasm. Don’t be so hard on her, we all have to have a way to deal with these people. We’re just not as calm and cool like you. I hope the tribune doesn’t turn into the STAR magazine, never reporting news, but stiff like that Brown tabloid queen.

    Homer Campbell; You are permitting your political prejudice to cloud your good judgement, in doing this your articles are becoming more infantile and lacking in substance. The Affordable Care Act is without a doubt an advancement in Health Care when it comes to the average or below average American. I realize it does have it’s weakness’s in regard to the freedom of conscience when it comes to advocating and supporting the killing of the unborn and related issues. I feel these problems can be worked out and brought to a reasonable and conscientious conclusion. Scrapping the whole program would be detrimental to the average and less than average American when it comes to Health issues. Extreme right wing Republicanism and in particular the Tea Party are detrimental to the Republic Of The United States.

    keta; I found your derogatory comment in regard to those comments coming from those residing in the great state of West Virginia a bit childish and immature. Please do a little research on the Commonwealth Of Virginia and the state of West Virginia. The residents of West Virginia have a noble heritage stemming from Virginia which they seceded from to form their separate state to join the Union in 1863 during the Civil War. I have great respect for the citizens of West Virginia, although my ancestors fought and died for the Confederacy and the state of Virginia.

    James Nicholas; I get the feeling you don’t have complete understanding of “ObamaCare” and it’s benefits to the average or below average American. Give it a little time to get the bugs worked out and I think you will come to approve of it. I can’t comment on the abilities of Joe Manchin, I have not followed him. I know he was your governor and is now one of your senators replacing the distinguished Senator Robert Carlyle Byrd, one of the greatest legislatures in American history. Surely your not a right wing fanatic, lacking in due discretion and understanding.

    Oh, lord. Obama’s a communist – check. He’s gonna take yer guns – check. He’s a liar – check. Affordable health care costs a fortune – check. Seriously, folks, it’s not fair to have two of these in one day. This isn’t Arkansas, or Alabama – it’s Ohio. Blue, blue Ohio. Give it a rest. On the other hand, the first effort came from West Virginia, (enough said) and Homer has that Home Health aide who keeps standing on his oxygen hose, so, no surprises here.
