Just to put things in perspective:

March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, 10 days

December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day.

This means that in the time between the attack at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered
this progressive federal government could not build a working webpage.

Mobilization of millions, building tens of thousands of tanks, planes, jeeps, subs, cruisers, destroyers, torpedoes, millions upon
millions of guns, bombs, ammo, etc. Turning the tide in North Africa, Invading Italy, D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, Race to Berlin all while we were also fighting the Japanese in the Pacific!!

And in that amount of time this administration still hasn't built a working webpage.

Obamacare is an embarrassing failure because it is the brainchild of an inexperienced community organizer.

The cons never had a plan besides rugbycare, which they and the lack-of-heritage-club signed off on years ago. But their bitterness runs so deep, as soon as this great President took it under his wings, they all of a sudden hated the idea. Their useless con dogma has doomed them.

hahahahahaha

I can't ever remember anytime in my life that a President did something as stupid as Obamacare. Now what? We dump it, and start all over. The whole world is laughing at the stupid Americans that reelected this silly little man.

Obama's fix:

The fix to this law is that Obama said the insurance companies shall continue to offer the sub standard insurance policies that the ACA say are sub standard for another year. That's it. 1 year.

Ok, first of all.

Obama does not have the authority to do this. Any form of legisilation or modification to existing legislation resides in the House and Senate. So Congress.

By Obama trying to enact modification to legislation he signed into law is definition of Tyranny. Here is why.

It puts power into the hands of the executive branch. We have 3 branches of government for the distribution of power. This was done intentionally. The reasoning for it was to limit the amount of control any one branch would have over another and thus control over the people.

The act in and of itself by Obama to modify legislation outside of Congress is unconstitutional and he should be arrested by the other branches of government/the people.

Now that we have that out of the way. And we know that the people will not rise up to arrest this guy for violations of the constitution, like they did not with Reagan, Bush, Bush 2.0, Clinton, and Obama.

What is going to happen in 1 year? The time frame Obama unilaterally extended this insurance directive?

The same thing all over again.

And with out proper legislation written and passed by the Congress, the Big insurance companies are not going to go off of his word to extend it. For the law does not support his directive.

The speech of extension was just that. A speech with nothing tangible with it.

The American people are going to be duped yet again.

The special interests that the GOP has as its bosses: Charles and David Koch, the Adelsons, the Waltons, the Bradleys, the DeVos's, etc., DO NOT want ANYTHING including Healthcare for the American people. They want work camps for you. The greed never stops with these personifications of Pure Evil!!!
What did Jesus say about taking care of the poor and the sick?? Not This!!!!!

Oh please, it isn't the Republicans that sold us out to Vladimir Putin, and the Muslim Brotherhood. 52 million people have lost insurance plans they liked, and they didn't need daddy Barack to pick it out for them either. Obama will have to use up every day he has left trying to console Americans for the mess he has made. And every day for years we were told this monster piece of legislation would be ready on day one. Day one of which decade? This is not funny any more. This is like a Greek tragedy.

Stealing from people makes greatness in a man! What happened is it finally hit home to the suckers who pay for all of this and have seen their families and friends decimated from an endless recession with more and more people getting federal help to offset the losses. They are finding more things in this piece of legislation that Pelosi spouted you have to wait until you see what is in it. For an example..there is an armed security force provision which gives Homeland Security even more totalitarian powers during a medical emergency. Tanks and light armored vehicles and hollow point bullets and millions of rifles and so much more for our enjoyment...

Define if it works. I see it as a socialistic attack on free enterprise, freedom and taxation without representations since not one republican voted for it and gouging the freedom and money from the haves to the have nots. It has nothing to do with health care.
