Democrats to blame for ‘Obamacare’

Published 12:34am Sunday, November 3, 2013

Some people think that I don’t like Democrats.

This just isn’t true.

There are Republicans that I could never vote for, and when G.W. Bush made mistakes I said so. The truth is that I don’t like people (not hate) that are too blind to see where we as a nation are now headed by this President and his cronies who are too blind to the truth.

First, he has done nothing but lie to the American people, and it seems that the Democrats are willing to sacrifice our nation to believe him. Where are the truths in Obamacare?

Many people are not able to keep their insurance policies, the prices have gone up, and are going up even for 27-year-olds. Why does a 50-year-old have to have coverage for maternity? The answer is somebody has to pay the price for his great taxes.

The policy that your company must have this in it, along with many other things that you don’t need. These are the Democrats that are blinded by their party, and when America goes bust you can look at your party as the party that wanted to have this.

Remember his words from 2008 even to this year, “If you like your policy you can keep it. Period.”

This is an outright lie that he has said along with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reed and the other Democrats that voted for Obamacare. On the roll out the second day before it was over, there are documents that show just 246 people have signed up and now the website is down again. To make it profitable for the federal government 39,000 people a day have to sign up by March 1, 2014.

What will happen when on Jan. 1, 2014, you have no insurance?

You can blame the Democrats, not the Republicans, as they had no say, nor vote, in Obamacare. The 246 was told not by Fox News, but his own news source CBS.

Again if you will look at the debt that this president and his Congress has caused (nearly 7 trillion) in just five years, and you can truly say yes we as a nation are better off now than we were before he took office, show me where.

By counting part-time workers he says that unemployment is better now than when he took office.

But tell me, how you can raise a family on part-time work?

    Barack Obama is not the Emperor Without Clothes; he’s a president in a skirt.

    Nor is Obama, in effect the real President of the U.S. Without even a single vote cast her way, Valerie Jarrett is.

    From a well-hidden lair somewhere in the White House, Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett builds the figurative bombs that Obama later throws at America.

    Tied to a Teleprompter and instructed what to say, Obama only ventures out to speak mainly to captive audiences of high school and university students, easily impressed from having been spoon-fed the indoctrination of anti-American Marxism in their classrooms. Only those who cheer him on in canned applause for later media sound bites are allowed wherever Obama speaks.–Judi Mcleod

    Come January 1 the Obama administration will force you to take a direct and active role in the murder of your unborn brothers and sisters.

    We filed our lawsuit in order to protect you, your conscience rights, your pro-life principles and your freedom to practice your religion as you deem fit.

    Priests for Life will disobey any mandate that tries to force us to violate our conscience and compel us to take part in the direct killing of our innocent unborn brothers and sisters.

    Mick Akers, were you kidding when you said the following?

    “These two industries have a dismal record when it comes to success, having a one hundred percent failure rate, all their customers die.” If not, this is the by far the most stupid thing I have ever read on the Tribune. Even worse than Crawford.

    If Democrats are “to blame” for Obamacare, blame us because you’ll no longer risk losing everything you have because you got sick. Blame us when your policy doesn’t get canceled because of your chronic illness, or when you get insured in spite of your pre-existing condition. Policies are being canceled because it is now against the law to offer policies with no prescription drug coverage, policies that make you cough up a big co-pay for cancer screening and other preventive tests, and other abuses that the Affordable Care Act has outlawed. If your income is low, you get tax credits to help pay for a policy that isn’t a cheap rip-off. Thanks, Mr. President!

    Homer Campbell; As a PS: The Democratic Party should take pride in the Affordable Care Act. It is a step forward when it comes to Medical care for those who cannot afford it. Medical care is a service not a business. All members of society have the God given right to the best medical care available without regard to cost. The cost of this service should be absorbed by all members of society, after all, we are our brothers keeper. Granted, Obamacare has it’s weakness’s, such as when it comes to freedom of conscience per example, the funding for the killing of the unborn. These deficiencies can be worked out without scraping the whole plan. A distinguished Jewish Rabbi by the name, Jesus of Nazareth once said, the two greatest commandments are the love of God and the love of neighbor. Food for thought.

    Homer Campbell; Does anyone have the answer to; “Where are the truths in Obamacare?” With all it’s faults, it is a feeble step forward in the advancement of our health care system, making it possible for the less privileged to receive adequate health services. The ultimate solution is socialized medicine, which all the major countries in the world have. The American people have allowed themselves to be brainwashed by the medical and pharmaceutical industries. These two industries have a dismal record when it comes to success, having a one hundred percent failure rate, all their customers die. I know of no other industry having a record like this and still remain credible, and yet, the American people succumb their influence.
