BOMBSHELL: Obama admitted in 2010 that millions would lose health insurance

In an exchange with Eric Cantor, Obama acknowledged a report from the CBO that suggested 8-9 million people would lose their heath insurance because of Obamacare. And this was in February of 2010:



Did you notice how even then he minimized the 8-9 million who would lose their health insurance as a small part of the 300 million in this country, just as he and his acolytes are doing now?

But Jake Tapper is right, this is proof he knew this would happen even before he passed Obamacare, and for him to act surprised now is ludicrous.

  1. Geez Jake, was there a debate raging that Obama believed the “you can keep it..”
    line? it was to disarm his critics, and push this clunker over the finish line. If you’re naive, ignorant, or have not otherwise understood the inefficiencies and inabilities of fed govt to manage the existing entitlements, you might find yourself wondering how you could object to the poor getting access, if it won’t cost you anything. I mean hey, if something costs nothing, maybe I will vote Democrat next time.

  2. EVIL LIAR! IMPEACH AND IMPRISON! Hs is fundamentally changing America into a Banana Republic, which means America will become a beacon for socialism, racism, fascism, immorality, gulags; well, just plain hate for anything that is good and right.

  3. To me the story in this clip is the journalistic malfeasance of Jake and his co-conspirators…he knew, just like the President did, that the promise was a lie…but they did nothing to expose it or call the President on it.

    1. You are painting with too big a brush…

      In all fairness to the Dead that voted, someone else pulled the lever for them.

  4. Interesting that he hereby establishes 3% as the lower bound for the percentage of people to ignore/discount. So a statement is “TRUTH” if it covers 97% of the people to whom it is said. Isn’t this the same person that said he had a “mandate” when he won by 5%?

  5. HOW TO GET RID OF IT????
    Simple:
    do NOT sign in – and that baby-bastard ObamaMiscare dies.
    Republicans, you stink high heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Obamacare can’t be fixed idiot republicans!
    A turd is a turd no matter how much you fix it or dress it up.

  7. The college kids and young adults come out of college believing in government as the solution to all things.
    When will they wake up and realize that their freedoms are being taken from them?

  8. What is happening in America, with the elites in Washington tightening the noose around the American people, is very similar to what the colonists were experiencing under King George.
    A distant entrenched power (Washington) is exerting more ominous control over the citizenry.
    I wonder how bad it will get before the people revolt?

  9. Obama doesn’t give a damn about good healthcare!
    Obama has simply used healthcare as a club to control us, we the people.
    If he really wanted to make healthcare insurance more affordable, he would have made it more free market based. Competition drives prices down.

  10. If there was real honesty in journalism Democrats would never rise above 30%
    A republican with this many scandals of such epic proportions would have been impeached by his own party by now due to the cry for blood from the media.

  11. The media continue to give Obama the benefit of the doubt inspite of mounting evidence that he knew what this law would do.

    Obamacare is not merely flawed, the entire thing operates on a myriad of assumptions and false premises that get to the heart of what is wrong with centralized decision-making and yet the media continues to uphold it as the only reasonable course of action that simply needs to be “fixed” to get it to work.

    Until the socialist propaganda machine and the groupthink that drives it are undone, conservatives will forever be fighting an uphill battle.

  12. Cicero said it best…..

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

    1. Listen, Scott Des Jarlais – you can repeal it. Do the national referendum, or a sinple poll and use the results as an argument to get rid of it.
      Capisce?

  13. Looks like the white house brown shirts will be giving CNN a visit. The praetorian media is only allowed to praise, lie for and cover up for dear leader and his mob.

  14. This guy is NOT a president! He is a Chicago thug, who can’t make it on brains so he must resort to LIES on everything from IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare, Iran, and the list goes on! Why didn’t Cantor, the RINO call him out on it? Answer…because they are ALL traitors to their country and us! Trouble is, the bum in the WH has no moral conscience…the Alinsky mantra…lie, lie, lie to get what you want!

  15. Won’t the unemployed be subsidized if they sign up for AwfulCare, including the YOUTH that don’t have a job or are working 39 hours or less?

    Do the democrats not realize that for healthy people to foot the bill for AwfulCare they need a robust economy that will provide them employment to earn a paycheck to have the funds to buy AwfulCare or at least to pay the fine?

    AwfulCare is a Catch22 bill that can’t sustain itself. But rather than repeal it, the elite will add more taxes on those that do have jobs until they sink the ship.

    1. FMW: you and I subsidize 75% of Congress workers’ insurance pay. They all make well over $120,000/yr.
      I don’t.
      Most of us don’t , but we have to pay.
      Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice yob, RINOs. (exempted and subsidized too, naturally)

  16. Out of approximately 315 million men, women and children, how many are buying healthcare insurance? Remove, all children, teens, and early 20’s. Cut in half married people that claim spouses….employers offer a policy to the employee who in turn receives coverage and adds his/her spouse, and children as dependents…..I want some real numbers..what are we really talking about? Does the 4 million that recently were cancelled really represent 8 million or more that truly lost their coverage….keep in mind I am a real blonde….does anyone else feel this way? We are not getting real numbers….we would probably be shockeddddddddd!

      1. You know what I forgot…subtract the seniors on Medicare, poor on Medicaid and Disability. They have been covered!

        It has been very disturbing to me, hearing over and over again… the Progressives keep claiming this huge number…(which ironically escapes me at the moment)….of the desperate uninsured…I DON’T BELIEVE THEM…THAT WAS THE FIRST LIE THEY TOLD… to get what they wanted.

        If people are uninsured it is because they want to be! Or they are illegal..or countless other explanations! It is not because it was not affordable. Now we know, still less than Obamacare rates.

        My son, when he was 27 got a decent policy for less than a $100 a month….it was good…Americans were not demanding OBAMACARE!! This is the BIGGEST DUPE on America, I know of!!

        1. You know who else you forgot? Veterans, their spouses and their children. At this point …… we do not have to sign up for Obamacare. That outrageous number Obama keeps claiming just keeps getting smaller and smaller, doesn’t it. 😉

          1. That’s right, thank you for adding to the list. When ever you hear mention of that massive number of uninsured, that they claim they are rescuing with Obamacare, think of me! 😉

            1. Everybody keep assuring us it’s not going to happen but I’m certain that Obama is going to fold the VA healthcare into Obamacare. Private doctors and hospitals are bailing out. He’s going to need the VA doctors staff and hospitals and since the VA is government, I’ll bet he can do it with the stroke of a pen.

    1. not real numbers? I am shokkkkked!
      ..
      Get over 50 million of illegals plus their families “out of shadows, out of So. America”
      is the next move of those grrrreat leaders.

  17. Bombshell? Please…after everything this man has gotten away with you could find a tape of him murdering someone and he still wouldn’t be kicked out.

    1. Really, I saw this headline and said there is a HUGE lag time. I knew Obama was a Socialist Commie in 2008….where has everybody been? Seriously, this is shocking…it does not feel shocking to me. I started posting in 2008 because I believe Obama was lying through his teeth…I am still here 5yrs later…and the rest of the country are still trying to wake up and are shocked! What???

  18. And Eric Cantor sat on this information for over 3 years. That’s the real bombshell.

    Obama lied…that’s business as usual.

    1. That is indeed the question. Why has Eric Cantor not said this all along. It is not like he does not have trouble getting to a microphone.

    2. In all fairness, I think I watched this meeting on C-Span. It’s the only one I can recall 0vomit meeting with the R’s at all about his commie plan. IIRC, we saw Paul Ryan make mincemeat of the pResident during this same outing.
      But we are definitely entitled to our disgust over the fact that the R’s didn’t stuff these words back down the throats of the Dims who voted to pass this. Every.time.they.opened.their.mouths.
      (as an aside, I saw something the other day that amused me: a doctor commented on Pelosi’s line about having to pass it to see what’s in it and said that is exactly the terminology they use in his profession with respect to stool samples)

  19. 2008, “I am going to transform America as we know it” has come to be reality!

    If you voted for this liar, you have yourself to blame! Failure to perform Due Diligence and learn something other than standing there like a rock to get spoon fed this pile of crap, is your fault! Didnt you ever know never believe a politician, believe 1/2 of what you see and 1/3 of what you read?! Tsk tsk as those who pulled the lever for this junta deceiver

  20. I simply want to know why Cantor, McCain, Ryan, Romney, Bachman, Perry, Gingrich or Rand Paul FAILED TO FIND THIS WHILE RUNNING for POTUS 2012?!

    This is sickening and is proof the current group, minus 3-4, of GOP DC Congressmen need to be replaced! Here is the validation to serve them their Pink Slip, right to work country therefore no need but ignorance to fire them!

    1. This is proof Odumbo 27 televised appearances stating, “You like your policy, you can keep it PERIOD” and “You like your doctor, you can keep your doctor PERIOD” are clear validation this lying Chicago liberal thug/junta DELIBERATELY AND INTENTIONALLY LIED/MISLED AMERICANS to gain 2012 POTUS Election! That theft is cause for impeachment!

    2. The 0 Regime would’ve called them *extremists* and *liars* if they would’ve offered this video up, at the time. Insurance Co’s hadn’t sent out the cancellation notices, yet.

  21. It shows you how calloused and heartless Premier O and his acolytes are. It’s going to be way more than 8 to 9 million who will lose their coverage. What’s Premier O going to call 100 million losing their insurance? Is he going to say, “Oh, that’s only a third of the country. No biggie.”?

    1. He will say the same lie, it isn’t 0b0Kair’s fault, it is the BIG Insurance Companies that is eliminating their coverage.

  22. You know… IMO this soundbite is less about the current mess we’re in and more about the mess the Republican Establishment had during the 2012 election. Their continued incompetence is why they’re losing the argument with the American people. In 2012 would you have thought CNN and MSNBC (Rachel Maddow even) would be the ones breaking significant stories?

    1. This was before the Obama administration began narrowing the granfathering rules and before they began mandating more provisions in the healthcare plans in 2011 … So 8 to 9 million became closer to 11 to 13 million in the private market , if it private market even survives and 40% of the group market.

  23. Here is a real bombshell and it has nothing to do with any of this crap with Obamacare or the previous scandals. There is the biggest scandal ever seen in this country about to be unleashed on this administration and Obama is right in the middle of it. This has been brewing for 5 years now and it is only because the Lame Stream Media, including FOX news that it hasn’t been center stage 5 years ago. Take your time is listen to this Youtube presentation by Carl Gallups.

    1. If they really had anything, they would have come out with it years ago. Or at least gotten some more credible people behind them.

  24. Wait until employers start to prepare for the end of their one-year mandate delay next year. I just hope the Republicans are smart enough to start passing worthwhile step-by-step legislation; not just removing, but replacing specific provisions of the ACA with free-market alternatives and addendum (tort reform, etc.).

    As far as the current pending legislation to “legitimize” Obama’s promises, wouldn’t it be easier to just ease the policy mandated features and let the insurance companies rewrite he new policies accordingly?

  25. If you are going to use truth and the facts, then it is obviously a Christian, racist, radical Tea Party trick against a Black Man.

    You should know better.

    The Fraud can’t help it. He was from a Communist African father, a dizzo White mother, trained in a Muslim madrassa and schooled by a Commie, coached by a bomb thrower who wrote his autobiography and nurtured by guilt-ridden wealthy leftists who want to destroy America.

    How can you blame this Constitutional “Professor”, Harvard Special Education, Affirmative Action Cult Leader?

  26. OK,
    1. Obama lied.
    2. Millions have lost the insurance..
    3. Tens of millions more will.
    4. Better insurance will not be available through the exchanges (as those policies have to comply with the same law).

    So, now what?

      1. Hello 12grace,
        I’m using this comment in this thread because I don’t think I can find the last one I made to you.
        Please forgive me, I should have respected your right to spell God that way.
        I was out walking this morning and I believe the Lord reminded me of something and He let me know it fit your reasoning.
        Years back I attended a wonder Pentecostal church. We had an elderly man who also attended. BEFORE he would take a seat or even engage in any fellowship before service, he would walk straight to the alter and bow. Not until then would he take a seat.
        It was from his heart he did this and God let me know then He was well pleased with that free will gesture.
        I should have honored yours as well. It won’t happen again.

        1. The Attny. Gen may be getting impeached and thrown out of office soon and even if this does not happen the American people can and must find another way.

          What would you have the American people do, just except this?

          1. What would I have them do?
            I’d “have” them stop being so stupid.
            I’d “have” them start acting like people have in the past when a regime enforces a wicked law and exempts itself. Get the guillotine.

            But, since none of what I’d “have” them do is going to happen, what else is there to say. I knew everything Obama was saying from day one was lie. Everything the Progressives said about the income tax amendment was a lie. Everything they said adopting Social Security was a lie.

  27. I don’t care for Obama at all, and yes, he knew Obamacare would cancel 8 to 9 Million Healthcare Plans….what I’d like to know…is WHY the Republican’s have remained silent on this issue for so darn long? WHERE were they when the POTUS admitted that Millions would lose their healcare plans, were they NOT in the same meeting room at the time? Did they NOT know this 3 years ago too?

    Again, I don’t care for Obama; and yes he lied but keeping silent about a lie, is just as bad as being the liar. The Republican’s have no room to bitch.

      1. perhaps she missed the MSM pummeling that Lee and Cruz underwent …………….how loudly can someone decry the effects of bad legislation and onerous executive action ?

        1. When people were saying – law of the land, law of the land – they were often responding to a complaining Republican.

    1. They were all over the place about this Susan. The media just went around screaming their favorite word – RACISM.

    2. Some Republican candidates for president last cycle were arguing forcefully against the mandating of medical insurance. Unfortunately, the RNC decided they would back someone whose socialized medicine program in MA was proclaimed to be the blueprint for Obamacare.

      The House of representatives voted repeatedly to repeal Obamacare, trying to avert disaster, but the Senate, controlled by Harry Reid and the democrats would have none of it.

    3. Mark Levin rightly calls it the ‘Obama/Boehner health care bill’ because of the repeated failure of the GOP to seriously oppose the bill. Republicans voted a few times for repeal when it was least likely to succeed, but when an opportunity to withhold funding came up prior to the March 2011 CR, Boehner refused to consider it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BPT6Vz3o7E Every CR and debt limit increase since has included funding that goes to Obamacare.

  28. … 8 million or 9 million to lose their Health Plans ,

    The ends justify the means . It is all part of the orchestrated plan set some 50 years ago by not only the Dumbocrats but also backed by the scum bag RINO’s.”

    1. be they scumbags , they all voted against this leviathan . The question is what now ? Jake Tapper ran a clip that pretty well eliminated ” I didn’t know ” from an Obama defense . An impeachment vote might result in a trial in the Senate , is this enough to get 2/3’s of the Senate to convict ? If not……….save your powder , the media will bury you for speciously bringing charges against Obama when the country ” has so many real problems ” . Expect a backlash for those bringing the charges , every left leaning talking head to fabricate racism and bigotry as causes for his impeachment .

      the question really is…………what now ? Obama lied and everyone knows it .

      1. Some voted the wrong way on cloture, which advanced the implementation of Obamadoesn’tCare.

        Fight back against the media with your own social networking and public appearances in townhalls and do the right thing… the House should impeach regardless of how the Senate acts.

        How the Senate was going to act did not prevent multiple votes to repeal the unaffordable care act and it should not prevent the House from doing their duty as patriots and lovers of liberty . They should impeach the treasonous tyrant in the oval office.

  29. It’s Time For Obama To Take The ‘Perp Walk’

    November 7, 2013 by Wayne Allyn Root

    Forget impeachment; it’s time for
    criminal prosecution. Obamacare isn’t about incompetence, and it isn’t about
    political disagreement. It’s about a trillion-dollar fraud carried out by the
    President of the United States.

    Let’s say a TV pitchman (you know,
    like the Ginsu knife guy) promised free health insurance. Let’s say he
    promised: “If you don’t like mine, you can keep your current health insurance.
    Period.” Then millions of Americans, thinking they had nothing to lose, took
    him up on it. And then, because of this con man’s lies, fraud and
    misrepresentations, they found the policies they liked and their families
    depended on canceled. When they went to his website for help to try to save
    themselves, they found it not only defective, but deceptive as well.

    The few who could get on found they
    had to enter their personal information, even if all they wanted to do was
    compare plans and prices. And once they did this, they were trapped. Their
    personal information would be used to extort them. They were warned that if
    they didn’t buy, they’d be fined.

    Can you imagine the outrage and
    criminal accusations coming from consumer protection advocates?

    Can you imagine
    how quickly the Federal government would shut down the business? Can you
    imagine how quickly a grand jury would be convened to indict the CEO? Can you
    imagine how quickly FBI agents, accompanied by SWAT teams with assault weapons,
    would swoop down on this CEO’s offices with guns drawn and remove cabinets and computers
    with the media watching, with cameras rolling, with flashbulbs
    popping? Can you picture the CEO and his top executives being “perp
    walked” in handcuffs in front of the waiting TV news cameras?

    The government would throw the book
    at these executives. For ripping off millions of consumers, including the
    elderly and innocent young children, the CEO would get life in prison.

    Think of the personal stories, the
    tragedies caused by this purposeful lie, by this fraud. The small businesses
    forced to close. The middle-class taxpayers hit with dramatic price increases,
    left with a choice of paying the mortgage or the health insurance. How about
    the people whose policies were canceled and, because they couldn’t afford this
    con man’s “better plan” or because of a defective website, went without
    insurance for a time — and during that time, had a car accident, leaving them
    unable to work and bankrupt with medical bills.

    All of these tragedies were set in
    motion because a CEO lied and misrepresented. If this happened to one single
    American family, that CEO would go to prison.

    Well it’s happening to millions of
    Americans. And that CEO con man is Barack Obama.

    A grand jury should be convened
    right now to indict the President of the United States for fraud on a massive
    scale. The FBI and SWAT teams should be surrounding the White House this week.
    Obama should be “perp walked” out of the people’s house in handcuffs, with
    cameras rolling, with flashbulbs popping. He lied to us all. His fraud will
    cost each of us dearly.

    This wasn’t the usual politician’s
    “little white lie.”

    This was a gigantic, purposeful lie that might cost 16
    million (or more) Americans our health insurance. This lie will cost a typical
    family $5,000, $10,000, even $15,000 more per year for a new expensive policy
    none of us can afford or want.

    Worst of all, this lie will strip
    millions of proud middle-class families of their independence, self-reliance
    and self-esteem, by forcing them into government dependence for the first time
    in their lives.

    But then, that was the real point of
    Obamacare from Day 1: government dependence and income redistribution on a
    massive Marxist scale.

    We’ve been conned. A gigantic fraud
    has been sold to the American people. Our lives, finances, jobs and healthcare
    system are being destroyed. Our income is being stolen (Obama calls it
    “redistributed”) based on a fraud.

    Who benefits? Obama’s voters, Obama’s donors
    and, of course, the biggest health insurance companies in the country. That was
    the bribe to get them to go along with this fraudulent, Marxist scheme.

    Obama makes Bernie Madoff look like
    a piker. This is the first trillion-dollar fraud in world history, and
    someone should go to prison. What CEO in the private sector would be allowed to
    walk? Not one.

    Let’s sum up the crimes:

    We were promised no one would lose their health
    insurance. Lie.
    We were promised you could keep your present policy, if
    you liked it. Lie.
    We were promised costs were going down. Lie.
    We were promised this would be easy. Lie.

    We were promised that the middle class would not pay
    higher taxes. Lie.

    But as the Ginsu knife pitchman
    might say: “Wait; there’s more!”

    What if a private-sector CEO spent
    more than $600 million to build a website and happened to give the no-bid contract
    to his college classmate? What if after overspending hundreds of millions of
    dollars, the site didn’t work? That CEO would be in handcuffs in a New York
    minute. And if his wife arranged the deal, she’d be behind bars, too.

    Well don’t look now, but it
    happened. The most expensive website in history does not work. Obama spent $600
    million of taxpayer money. The “fix” will bring the cost to more than $1
    billion of your money. It was a no-bid contract. The top exec at the company
    that built the site is the Princeton classmate of Michelle Obama. They are
    members of the Princeton Black Alumni Association. She just happened to get a
    no-bid contract.

    How could someone spend that much
    money… and fail? It’s just a website. Did millions of dollars go to
    Cayman Island bank accounts? Were bribes paid for Michelle’s favor?

    Obama knew millions of Americans
    would lose their insurance. He knew rates would skyrocket. And someone stole
    hundreds of millions of dollars building a defective website. It’s past time
    for impeachment; it’s time for the CEO to pay for the fraud he’s perpetrated.

    It’s time for Obama to take the
    infamous “perp walk.”

    I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal
    Liberty. See you next week. Same time, same place. God bless America.

    http://personalliberty.com/2013/11/07/its-time-for-obama-to-take-the-perp-walk/

    1. I hope that conservatives are not signing up for this. It would be poetic justice if these healthcare,gov nightmares were all happening to Obama supporters.

  30. Democrats moved heaven and earth to help those without insurance…..so they claim. Yet, the nearly 100 million people that will lose their insurance as a result is chump change. Who cares about them? Nice one, liberal hypocrites. They can find a “better plan” on the exchanges, which was the entire goal to begin with. To kick them off their current plans to force them into the exchanges. Next year Democrats will force them off their employer based insurance, yet the Dems are only saying 5% of the plans are effected….knowing that number will skyrocket next year. Liars liars liars. You claim it’s a better plan? To who? If it includes a lot of coverage for things they don’t want and can’t afford, and it has an unreasonably high deducible….it’s only a good plan to you Democrat politicians. Not to those of us that have to pay for it. Idiot communists.

  31. In all these discussions they discuss numbers of “Health Insurance Policies” cancelled and compare it to US population….how many people are affected by those health insurance policies…those policies are held by families so multiply the number of policies by 3 or 4x and you’ll get the number of people affected by the loss of current health care insurance polices. 30-40 million out of 300 million is 1/5 of the US population that will be adversely affected.

      1. Just giving back what we get. Remember “Bush lied, people died”?
        The left is good at catchy phrases. Turnabout is fair play. 😉

  32. Here is another smoking Gun Video: Obama Admits To Violating Pledge Americans Could Keep Health Plans In Jan. 2010

    “The last thing I will say, though — let me say this about health
    care and the health care debate, because I think it also bears on a whole lot of other issues. If you look at the package that we’ve presented — AND there’s some stray cats and dogs that got in there that we were eliminating, we were in the process of eliminating. For example, we said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your — if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making.
    And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge.”

    He said he would fix it and did not.

  33. Sociopathic – Pathological Lying – Narcissistic Usurper

    Who doesn’t mind collateral a little damage


    (but a nice family guy – so THEY say)

      1. Exactly. Among other things. Anti-Constitutional/Liberty Statist might be another part of his legacy. Maybe even Tyrant Wannabee (getting closer). Weak/Wrong foreign policy.
        If we are lucky enough to have the truth told in our history books, that probably means we will have won, and his legacy will start with: Worst President Ever.

        1. He already qualifies as tyrant in my mind. And there would need to be a great spiritual awakening or home schooling with accurate material before the truth would be told in the history books about the worst president ever.

  34. Heath Care is one more steppingstone in the pathway to the Obama dictatorship, after quelling the rioting because 50 million + lost their health insurance.

  35. It’s a shame this video was posted immediately after Obama blamed insurance companies for those who lost their health plans in late October.

    Mr. Obama blames insurance companies and Republicans but not himself for healthcare.gov.

  36. What it also shows is that Eric Cantor and the entire GOP KNEW millions of Americans would lose their health insurance but still supported Obama by passing continuing resolutions that funded the development, launch and FULL operation of ObamaCare from 2010-2013. GOP owns this now, they control the House and the funding.

    1. Anyone that fights socialism/Communism/Marxism knew that everyone will lose their insurance. You think because you haven’t gotten the LETTER yet that you are safe? Everyone must lose their private health insurance so that they will have to go to the government to get it. That was the plan and always has been. What is surprising is that the Democrats act surprised that it is happening.

      The entire political class owns this. The Republicans for not fighting and the Democrats for acting like they are surprised. The Republicans are not very good fighters especially the moderates. They didn’t fight Roosevelt and they didn’t fight Wilson. None of them made much of a fuss about the beginning of the end of our country. We have to find some that will fight for us. We know who they are because the Democrats and Republicans trash them at every chance.

      1. Great post. I do hope “You think because you haven’t gotten the LETTER yet that you are safe?” was addressed to all and not me specifically.

    2. Republicans did more than that.
      They tried to amend the law to make it less damaging.
      They tried not to pass continuing resolutions and got blamed for the so-called shutdown.
      The shut down was a factor in Cuccinelli’s loss.

      1. Doing something at the 11th hour was nothing more than kabuki theater. The House has the ability not to fund a law without any involvement from the Senate, but they CHOSE to fund it.

    3. More than that: Eric Cantor knew Obama had admitted that millions of Americans would lose their health insurance, but he kept silent about that. He literally covered up for Obama.

  37. I think the Country at this point would welcome his “Resignation” and that includes Republicans, Democrats and Independents and the only one that doesn’t think so is Barack Obama.

    1. No the only Democrats that could care less about this is those facing another election. Same with Establishment Republicans.

      They both support this bill 100%. They live to spend other peoples money and this bill allows them to do that big time. The biggest redistribution of wealth ever in America. Establishment Republicans really love it because it mostly takes from the middle class and gives to the poor. Also they can deny they support it.

    1. And after they use that word, they need to see to it that he is indicted on grounds of treason and punished.

  38. Plain and simple….obama doesn’t care what happens to the average American citizen. It’s not a concern to him. He’s pushing his agenda and too bad if some folks get “hurt” in the process.

    1. yesterday Rush was comparing the Jay Carney comment of “only 5% affected” by the bad rollout of obamacare with the 1.7% of gays, why is it always a national must change when the law has anything to do gay rights 1.7% of the total population, but when 5% Americans are losing their health insurance (they aren’t losing health care, yet) it’s not so big of a deal?

      Never should have passed this law in order to “find out what’s in it”, but now that it’s the law, it needs to be repealed! We would have been much better off as a nation giving the 11 million without insurance, insurance. Leave the rest of us alone!
