That Obama repeatedly lied to get ScamCare passed is now a widely accepted fact.
There's no reason to believe anything that comes out of his mouth from this point forward.
IMO, America will now watch as he attempts to dump his scam into the laps of the insurance companies that have cancelled policy holders. He'll make it their problem, not his.
Spot on!!!!!! LOL

Obama didn't have to make a decision along those lines because there was no draft to worry about. You might as well put a big "I" on your forehead for ignorant.
Kenya had no conscription and has never had since achieving independence in 1963. Recruitment into the armed forces is on a voluntary basis.

Obama’s Massive Fraud
If he were a CEO in the private sector, he’d be prosecuted for such deception.
Fraud is a serious federal felony, usually punishable by up to 20 years’ imprisonment — with every repetition of a fraudulent communication chargeable as a separate crime. In computing sentences, federal sentencing guidelines factor in such considerations as the dollar value of the fraud, the number of victims, and the degree to which the offender’s treachery breaches any special fiduciary duties he owes. Cases of multi-million-dollar corporate frauds — to say nothing of multi-billion-dollar, Bernie Madoff–level scams that nevertheless pale beside Obamacare’s dimensions — often result in terms amounting to decades in the slammer.

How did Georgie Porgie get into Yale? "Affirmative action for the son and grandson of alumni. Affirmative action for a member of a politically influential family. Affirmative action for a boy from a fancy prep school." And, since "the class of wealthy, influential children of alumni of top universities is disproportionately white" it is also Affirmative Action based on race.
"Intelligence, hard work and the other qualities associated with the concept of merit had almost nothing to do with Bush's life and success."
"George W. Bush, in fact, may be the most spectacular affirmative-action success story of all time. Until 1994, when he was 48 years old and got elected Governor of Texas, his life was almost empty of accomplishments."

How did Obama get into Harvard after being a college dropout at Occidental and never attending classes at Columbia?
Who was the person who worked and sacrificed to get admitted to Harvard and was denied so someone with high level contacts with the Communist Party USA could get another fraudulent line in their fraudulent resume?
I'd like to know who that person is. Perhaps we could take a look at Obama's application to Harvard and compare it to all others, and then we can identify the person that had to be denied so a college dropout could attend.

he is a dictator. He can't mandate a private company to become criminals--same old crap with O'bama-he wants the entire country to be a nation of criminals. Let's see how this mess shakes out, because those people that are canceled are canceled and he knows it. So he lied again. Now we are back to the 'tax' again that Justice Roberts was talking about. He told us we would figure it out.

You were saying?
You have to be the most ignorant person here... well, the second most ignorant person here. There's one other Democrat dupe that's obviously more ignorant than you.
The critics have forgotten that the House passed a GSE reform bill in 2005 that could well have prevented the current crisis, says Mr Oxley, now vice-chairman of
Nasdaq.

He fumes about the criticism of his House colleagues.“All the handwringing and bedwetting is going on without remembering how the House stepped up on this,” he says.“What did we get from the White House? We got a one-finger salute.”

The House bill, the 2005 Federal Housing Finance Reform Act, would have created a stronger regulator with new powers to increase capital at Fannie and Freddie, to limit their portfolios and to deal with the possibility of receivership.

In 2000, Big Oil, including Exxon, Chevron, BP and Shell, spent more money to get fellow oilmen Bush and Cheney into office than they had spent on any previous election. Just over a week into Bush's first term, their efforts paid off when the National Energy Policy Development Group, chaired by Cheney, was formed, bringing the administration and the oil companies together to plot our collective energy future. In March, the task force reviewed lists and maps outlining Iraq's entire oil productive capacity.

Planning for a military invasion was soon under way. Bush's first Treasury secretary, Paul O'Neill, said in 2004, "Already by February (2001), the talk was mostly about logistics. Not the why (to invade Iraq), but the how and how quickly."

Obama asscrack sucking USA Today good enough for you?

"State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement to USA TODAY on Friday that the changes were made to prevent members of Congress from "providing more guidance to the public than the administration."

Victoria Nuland, spokeswoman for the State Department, said she was expressing the concerns of her "leadership" when she emailed that a CIA memo on Benghazi should remove references to the attacks links to al-Qaeda and CIA warnings about terrorist threats in Benghazi in the months preceding the attack.

According to ABC News, Nuland objected in an email to White House and intelligence officials that the CIA description "could be abused by members (of Congress) to beat up on the State Department for not paying attention to warnings."

The "talking points" memo on what the Obama administration should tell the public was the basis for statements made by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who appeared on talk shows five days after the Sept. 11 attack to explain what happened.

Rice insisted the attack emanated from a protest over an anti-Islam video produced in America that turned violent and that terrorism was not involved. The White House has since acknowledged the assault was a preplanned terror attack and no protest happened."

Next question?

Oh, yeah, you still haven't answered the first question.

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

"Bush decided to go to business school at Harvard in the fall of 1973, he requested and got an honorable discharge — eight months before his service was scheduled to end.

Bush's enemies say all this proves he was a cowardly deserter. Nonsense. He was a pampered rich kid who took advantage."

On the other hand...

"That Bill Clinton went to great lengths to avoid the Vietnam-era draft, that he used political connections to obtain special favors, and that he made promises and commitments which he later failed to honor, are all beyond dispute."

On October 1, 1973, Bush was honorably discharged from the Texas Air National Guard and transferred to the inactive reserves in Denver, Colorado. He was discharged from the Air Force Reserve on November 21, 1974, ending his military service.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) faced howls of laughter from an audience in Washington, D.C. on Thursday when he claimed that he “didn’t want a shutdown” over President Barack Obama’s health care reform law.

At The Atlantic‘s Washington Ideas Forum, Fox News host Chris Wallace pointed out to the Texas Republican that many of his colleagues thought he hurt the party by forcing the government shutdown instead of letting Obamacare fail on its own.

“That ignores who I think was responsible for the shutdown,” Cruz replied.“I didn’t want a shutdown. Throughout the whole thing, I said we shouldn’t have a shutdown.”

That remark elicited laughter from the forum audience.

“Can you envision a situation where you would decide, I’m the guy to lead the crusade?” Wallace wondered.

“I intend to support whoever is standing up and leading, whoever is effectively defending conservative principles, defending free market principles, defending the Constitution, bringing us back to defending liberty,” Cruz explained.“That’s who as a voter I intend to support.”

“And it’s my hope that we see a thousand flowers bloom, that we see lots of people stepping up providing that leadership because that’s what it’s going to take to turn the country around,” he concluded.

“I never thought I’d hear you espousing the views of Chairman Mao,” Wallace chuckled.
