Why would any of those folks want to spend facetime with Obama?
I can only assume that you are projecting.
I, for one, wouldn't answer the door if he were knocking.
He would not even get close to the door..... the coyotes and buzzards need to eat too.

Yeah, I figure once the SS read the welcome sign half-way up the drive..."If you can read this, you're in range"...they'd have second thoughts.

I think the Obamas should invite Beck, Hannity, and the big fat idiot over to the house for a week long stay, and feed them nothing but collard greens, grits, and watermelon, followed by 40 ounce chasers. Give em all something to shout about.
woof
Rush would loooove for that to happen. He'd say this while doing his famous paper shuffling sound track and clearing his throat, "Ah, ha! You see folks, I told you liberals were the racist ones, and Obama just proved my point by having me over for dinner and making the kitchen staff serve what amounts to be slave food. Now, if a Conservative White male President had did this to Obama......".

That's a secret? The only reason we ended up with "Obamacare" is because of GOP resistance to anything better.
Which constitutional provisions do you think are violated by either of your two complaints? There is absolutely nothing in "Obamacare" that will prohibit you from going to any doctor you would like.
No, we ended up with Obamacare because the Democrats rushed it through using lobbyists and a former insurance exec to write it instead of taking their time to do it right. Call a spade a spade.

But here's your stats anyway:
But a new study published in The American Journal of Medicine says the biggest reason for going into bankruptcy is medical debt.
Early Show national correspondent Hattie Kauffman reports the study says getting sick is a factor in 62 percent of personal bankruptcies -- an increase from just eight percent in 1981.
And among those who filed for bankruptcy, 75 percent reported having some type of medical insurance. But The Washington Post says people in bankruptcy with insurance were nearly $18,000 in the red. And those without insurance had an average of almost $27,000 in medical debt.
And from the same publication as quoted by you:

As coauthors of Why ObamaCare Is Wrong for America,1 we strongly recommend that the Affordable Care Act of 2010 be repealed and replaced as soon as possible. The Affordable Care Act has become deservedly more unpopular since its enactment.2, 3 It is too costly to finance,4 too difficult to administer,5 too burdensome on health care professionals,1 and too disruptive of existing health care arrangements that many Americans prefer.6 It will limit future economic growth,7 distort health care delivery,8 exacerbate already unsustainable entitlement spending,9 and erase any meaningful constitutional limits on the enumerated powers of the federal government.10 By relying on illusory formulaic reductions in future payments to physicians, on burdensome new reporting requirements, and on top-down restrictions on medical innovation, the Affordable Care Act will further jeopardize access to quality care.1

For example, proposed lower levels of reimbursement for physicians and other health care providers—as set out in the Affordable Care Act payment formulas, the even less accountable future operations of the Independent Payment Advisory Board, or the continued operation of the statutory Sustainable Growth Rate—along with forthcoming comparative effectiveness guidelines and Medicare pay-for-performance reporting rules will force medical practitioners to be more responsive to the preferences of budget-sensitive federal officials than to the best application of their professional judgment to their patients' preferences and needs. The imperative to comply only with the edicts of a smaller number of highly politicized regulators, administrators, and payers under the Affordable Care Act might reduce some of the annoyance of coping with the more varied payment regimens currently used by larger numbers of private insurers and other third-party payers, but it will substitute the greater burdens of political risk, permanent monopsony bargaining power, and unfunded mandates on many medical practitioners.

We've had death panels for years and years. They're called health insurance companies. Remember when they wouldn't pay for bone marrow transplants?

I respectfully disagree with your contention that "before at least you had the option to do what you felt was best based on your needs". Unless you have the funds to pay for stuff directly, you are always at the mercy of the insurance companies, specifically in the area of a stay in the hospital. As long as you are improving, they will pay, but the minute you plateau, out you go, many times before you are ready. I know of several who were discharged early, then had to go back because of previously unresolved complications, and one nearly died on the way back.
For the foreseeable future, my national vote will be with Democrats, because at least with Obamacare they tried to do something about the abysmal state of health care. Republicans did nothing but deny, at first, then obstruct, throw sand in the gears, and cause things to be added that made Obamacare the dog's breakfast that it is. Then turn around and blame the Democrats for the result. I have no use at all for the scumbags. All they know and will do is take care of their rich friends and to hell with everybody else. So blame them, not Obama. At least things can get fixed if we as a nation throw out enough Republicans so that they can't obstruct progress.
This could have all been avoided if we had simply put everyone on Medicare, improved the funding and service, and released private companies from providing for health care. Private enterprise has no business being in an activity that is such a drag on profits.
You'll be sorry, just wait and see. Now it looks good, because your a democrat and you think your crooks really do care for you, news flash, they don't. Insurance companies wrote the bill idiot, thus "we have to vote on it to see whats in it", NANCY the Jew POLOSI, they have a different plan WHY? Idiots are those who believe a politician to care, they only want one thing from you dummies, A VOTE!

I think you need to research the Republicans health care plan that Gingrich wanted to pass ...it's the same as Obama care but on steroids. He wanted government to pay for all ...one payer system, you dummy.
I'll bet you a dollar to a donut hole that hundreds of so-called Republican Congress members have bought billions of dollars worth of Insurance companies stocks since Obama? care became law!!!

You ignorant, foolish, moronic, simpletons haven't figured out yet that IT'S A GAME OF FINANCE that BOTH parties are playing.

The Conservatives will triple their salaries on the stocks in healthcare companies they're buying.

You knuckle dragging low info rank n file good ol boy flag waving, hot dog eatin, stupid, gullible, guns n bibles clinging, simple minded drones can't see the games that your own party leaders are playing on you.

Just keep on listening to those phoney "radio talk " millionaires, who are paid by Billionaires to keep us at war with each other while both parties meet weekly on the golf coarse and laugh at your stupid asses.

Be a good Amuuuurcan and don't think pass your political ideology.
