Thanks to Obama, the poor are being denied access to healthcare even more than they were previously.

This is progress?
Honestly, I wonder if this guy can get anything done right.

How so? The poor have some of the best healthcare around. The rich can afford Cadillac health care.

Those in middle are the ones hurting. Those who can't afford private insurance, yet don't have insurance on the job.

YOU are probably one of those who doesn't want to pay his own way. You like going to doctors and hospitals and walking away and paying nothing so everyone else has to pick up the tab for you. Irresponsible.

It's time everyone get covered by insurance and pay for it.

Glad you asked. here is why the poor have LESS ACCES to health care thanks to Obama:
http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2...

There are other sources if you care to look.

You don't know anything about me, so why trouble yourself with casting aspersions? is it becasue you don't know anything pertinent?

You are right, too, that the middle class are hurting.
They can't get a job, yet still have to pay the OBAMACARE Tax.

Thank your hero Bush for no one having a job. All those jobs disappeared while he was president.

Wht make you think Bush is my hero?
What difference does it make anyway, when the jobs left?
Clearly, Obama's policies are not the solution. If they were, we'd see at least a little improvement.

It's OK that Bush let the jobs leave in the first place, but it's not OK that Obama can't make the jobs return because Republicans block his every move. That makes perfect sense.

It's not quite the same thing.
Bush is not running for any office.
Obama is promising more of the same ineffective policies.

You want continued high unemployment, stagnant economy, rising prices for everything from food to fuel and reduced access to healthcare for the poor? IF so, vote for Obama.

Not I, though. I am hoping for some REAL change!
