Obama was able to sell the American people down the river with pack of lies. In fact, the Obama care is not the 2700 pages that the Liberal Democrat Senators singed blindly without reading them and so was the liberal Democrat House led by despicable immoral Speaker Pelosi who stated that the Reps should vote to approve the bill first “in order to know what in it.” Then Supreme Court judge Roberts caved in to Obama pressure and changed the Obama care law to a tax which has nothing to do with the recent Obama care which is applies to only the hard working American conservatives but not to the union members and not to government employees and US Congress members and employees. Obama changed the low about corporations that do not need to deal with the law until 2015. In addition, Obama lies to the American people and went behind our backs to add new Obama’s regulations to existing private sector insurance agreement which cause them to be cancelled with cost higher by about 100% compared to the original price before Obama’s regulations. In addition doctors did not receive their new contract with Obama care and 80% will not work for the Obama care. The bottom line is that Obama was able to ‘bait and switch’ and lie in bold face to the American people with the support of the deceitful liberal media of crooks led by the NY Times, CNN, ABC, AP and the Washington Post which means that the American people will be forced by the IRS henchmen of Obama to pay nearly twice of what they pay today for same insurance in the private sector. Will ted Cruz and the GOP conservatives except the spineless RINOs led by John McCain call the American people to demonstrate in the streets and stop the evil and lying Obama regime from controlling our private lives with IRS and NSA henchmen?

No doubt that some (a lot?) of people who opt
for the Affordable Care Act are going to
see their insurance premiums go up. But, that's
mainly because these people - who can barely
afford to buy any health insurance for themselves
and their families - have junk policies sold to
them by shyster health insurance companies.
Junk policies that have very high deductibles,
high co-payments and are so full of exclusions
that the insured is strictly at the mercy of the insurance company bean counter. That's why their
premiums are low. The insurance isn't worth
much of anything, but that's why they can afford

The Affordable Care Act will make it possible
for these people to get some REAL health
insurance from reputable companies. In the
long run they will save thousands of dollars.

Honest health insurance for millions of
low-income Americans is a real nightmare
to Republicans? No friggin' doubt about it.
