Barack Obama, our next President

The problem with Obama's "fix" is changing the rules after health plans have already met the requirements of the law could destabilize the market and result in higher premiums for consumers.

His "fix" only pacifies the politically ignorant and generally clueless until next year. Conveniently, until after the 2014 elections. Then we're back to square one again.

No "fix". Just more of Obama dictating the law of the land and changing it at a press conference at his own discretion trying to ensure his party's survival.

" Dear President Obama,

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all you have done and are doing. You see I am a single Mom located in the very small town of Palmer, Texas. I live in a small rental house with my two children. I drive an older car that I pray daily runs just a little longer. I work at a mediocre job bringing home a much lower paycheck than you or your wife could even imagine living on. I have a lot of concerns about the new “Obamacare” along with the taxes being forced on us Americans and debts you are adding to our country. I have a few questions for you Mr. President.

Have you ever struggled to pay your bills? I have.

Have you ever sat and watched your children eat and you eat what was left on their plates when they were done, because there wasn’t enough for you to eat to? I have.

Have you ever had to rob Peter to pay Paul, and it still not be enough? I have.

Have you ever been so sick that you needed to see a doctor and get medicine, but had no health insurance because it was too expensive? I have.

Have you ever had to tell your children no, when they asked for something they needed? I have.

Have you ever patched holes in pants, glued shoes, replaced zippers, because it was cheaper than buying new? I have.

Have you ever had to put an item or two back at the grocery store, because you didn’t have enough money? I have.

Have you ever cried yourself to sleep, because you had no clue how you were going to make ends meet? I have.

My questions could go on and on. I don’t believe you have a clue what Americans are actually going through and honestly, I don’t believe you care. Not everyone lives extravagantly. While your family takes expensive trips that cost more than most of us make in two-four years, there are so many of us that suffer. Yet, you are doing all you can to add to the suffering. I think you are a very selfish and cold hearted man, who does not care what is best for the people he was elected by (not by me) to represent, but more so out for the glory of your name attached to history. So thank you Mr. President, thank you for pushing those of us that are barely staying afloat completely under water and driving America into the ground. You have made your mark in history, as the absolute worst and most hated president of the United States. God have mercy on your soul!

Sincerely,

Yolanda Vestal

"Jeff Rense is joined by Barack Obama childhood friend Mia Pope for a follow-up conversation to an earlier viral story/video about the ‘real’ Barack Obama. From the mysterious way that Barack Obama was admitted to Punahou High School in Hawaii to Barack Obama’s bi-sexual tendencies, this interview is one that Barack Obama surely doesn’t want to get out to the entire world.

Less than one percent of Americans are denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition.

Obamacare does make insurance cheaper for the small number of Americans who have pre-existing conditions but the price drives up the cost of insurance for everyone else.

Americans could have had quality health insurance that didn't require a $2 trillion government takeover. Free markets could have done a better job if given the chance.

There was a much better way to make health care more affordable.

75% of Americans were happy with their coverage. It could have been more affordable for the other 25%.

News Flash "stupid", the Cold War wasn't a "war".
FACT: In 1973, when Obama was about twelve years old, the United States ended the draft in 1973 and converted to an all All-Volunteer military.
Trying to compare Obama's decision in regards to All-Volunteer military service to that of George Bush's lottery system military service is absolutely ridiculous.
typical leftwing ethics, or lack thereof....don't do the right thing unless some one is looking....

Thats the whole IDEA with universal health coverage, it's dragging all those healthy 20 somethings into coverage while the unhealthy 60+'s drag on the costs. This is what you guys can't grasp, if it was market forces & profit then you would all lose coverage at 40.
You live in this fantasy land about market forces & its all BS. Healthcare is one thing that market forces can never get right because those who need it most get dropped off the coverage list.
Just like home insurance, people who live in safe areas prop up those who don't and with climate change, some coastal regions will be not able to be insured. That is already happening now or they make it at such a high premium only the rich can afford to insure their homes. The only way to do that is by government control, no different than paying taxes for your social security. Life expectancy is far longer now than it once was so you need at least $2 million saved to survive a comfortable retirement as self funded or live off the governments handouts. That is the hard cold facts of life, yet trying to single out Obama as the blame for all this is ignorance in the extreme.

The reason the GOP march-in-locked-step zombies are howling over healthcare reform is because it takes aim at the insurance companies, their big benefactors at election time.

ok, Kaiser.

This "marriage penalty," as some conservative critics are calling it, is hardly unique to federal health reform.

"Any [federal benefit] structured based on poverty will have that effect," said Gary Claxton, a vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation.

but it's Heritage who forgets to mention that fact.
