His faulty logic, or blatant lying, is that he has not "cut the cost of healthcare", as promised by so many in his camp, one damned dime. He has, however, successfully managed to increase the cost of health insurance for every one in the country.
He has incresed the cost of healthcare for evryone in the country who WORKS. Non-working stiffs will still pay nothing, exempt.

Obama's DESPERATE attempt to point at RomneyCare as a way to justify his own FAILED attempt at a single payer system:

WASHINGTON (AP)— President Barack Obama is citing the Massachusetts health care system's slow start to keep expectations low for early sign-ups for his own overhaul. And he's pointing to the bipartisan effort to get the program launched in Massachusetts to encourage his opponents to stop rooting for his law's failure.

The president planned to speak about the embattled law Wednesday from Boston's historic Faneuil Hall, where Massachusetts Republican Gov. Mitt Romney was joined by the late Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy to sign the state's 2006 health care overhaul bill.

...

In a statement Wednesday, Romney said he believes "a plan crafted to fit the unique circumstances of a single state should not be grafted onto the entire country."

I caught some of his speech yesterday. He said that "no one would lose their right to healthcare" which is a far cry from previous quotes that no one would lose their healthcare insurance.

Of course you don't lose your right to health care, It mandatory, under his law! What a dumb statement to make!

Not so much dumb as it is safe. He's been caught in enough lies this week. It's a little safer to state vague facts that don't really mean anything.

Our Prsident Obama is playing word games.

Don't know about you but Obama resembles a used car salesman.

He follows closely in Bill, cigar salesman, Clinton's footsteps. Has Monica written a book yet?

Google Inc.(GOOG:US), Red Hat Inc.(RHT:US), Oracle Corp.(ORCL:US) and other companies are contributing dozens of computer engineers and programmers to help the Obama administration fix the U.S. health-insurance exchange website.

The help is arriving as the government’s main site to offer health insurance remains plagued by repeated outages a month after its Oct. 1 debut. Among those assisting are Michael Dickerson, a site reliability engineer on leave from Mountain View, California-based Google, and Greg Gershman, the innovation director for smartphone application maker Mobomo, according to a government official who asked not to be identified because the moves haven’t been made public.

It pays to put your money in the right place:

Obama donor’s firm hired to fix Web mess it created!

WASHINGTON — A tech firm linked to a campaign-donor crony of President Obama not only got the job to help build the federal health-insurance Web site — but also is getting paid to fix it.

Anthony Welters, a top campaign bundler for Obama and frequent White House guest, is the executive vice president of UnitedHealth Group, which owns the software company now at the center of the ObamaCare Web-site fiasco.

UnitedHealth Group subsidiary Quality Software Services Inc.(QSSI), which built the data hub for the ObamaCare system, has been named the new general contractor in charge of repairing the glitch-plagued HealthCare.gov .

Welters and his wife, Beatrice, have shoveled piles of cash into Obama’s campaign coffers and ­apparently reaped the rewards.

Beatrice Welters bundled donations totaling between $200,000 and $500,000 for Obama’s campaign during the 2008 election ­cycle, according to campaign-­finance data compiled by Center for Responsive Politics.

"The real scandal, however, is just starting to come to light—the cost of the program to young, healthy middle class people." - The TRUTH About Obamacare's Ugly Sticker-Shock: It Happened To Me

Obamacare is an extremely regressive form of taxation. It needs to be fixed. Because the young and the middle class aren't going to put up with this burden forever.

And if we pull out, the whole system collapses.

You sure think you know a lot about me. One part will certainly be true at some point - with Obama in office, the working middle class will be nothing more than poor broke bill payers for those that are living off the system.

More people will be purchasing health insurance than ever before.

Insurance companies will compete for their business.

Competition leads to lower prices and better service.

Let's talk about living off the system.

91% of those receiving government assistance are the elderly, the disabled and the WORKING poor.

Conservatives lie and want people to believe that everyone on public assistance is a freeloading moocher.

It's essentially what all fascists do; single out a group and make people think that this group is responsible for all their problems.

I am betting you are a student, a government employee, or a government dependent.

1. With 85,000 new IRS agents in place to make sure you comply with the law to buy insurance, there better be more people purchasing than ever before.

2. only those insurance companies that have been chosen by the Federal Imperial Government, and will offer policies that have been approved by the Federal Imperial government, will compete within a government regulated arena for those consumers buying insurance.

3. Competition does lead to lower prices and better service. Ding! Ding! Ding! You win the prize.

Obamacare does not provide for a competitive marketplace. The end result is higher prices for those not getting free or government subsidized insurance policies.

And one final point...just who do you think is paying for the free and subsidized insurance policies within the government regulated marketplace called Obamacare?

If you were smart enough to say "the middle class tax payer" you would win another prize. But you are too f---ing stupid to know that.

OK, go back to parroting the talking points you got in today's ThinkProgress e-mail.

Government disability desiginations in this country have skyrocketed since Obama took office. FIFTY million are collecting SNAP benefits. OBAMACARE created the 30 hour work week - hello WORKING poor... Sounds like we're living the dream nowdays.

Only because government is forcing them by pointing the IRS hounds at them. Thereby, threatening, fines and or incarceration if they refuse to pay up. If anyone else did this it would be called extortion.

Requiring people to purchase any product or service is not the right of government. It's one thing to say if you want to drive, you have to buy insurance. It's quite another to say that if you exist, you have to buy health insurance. It is unethical and unconstitutional. Unless of course you agree with the SCOTUS that it is, indeed, a form of taxation.
