OBAMACARE should be repealed in total, an The Obamaniac should either resign, or be impeached for LYING to the American people and to congress in order to get his hated and dreaded Stalinist OBAMACARE passed.

Like millions of other God-fearing Americans, I will simply refuse to take part in, nor have anything to do with his Stalinist OBAMACARE.

What's he going to do ? Throw me and millions of other Americans into federal prison ? I don't think so.

The Affordable Health Care Act was passed into law by an act of Congress to make crooked insurance companies play fair or go broke
.
Its working ;o))
.
You now have the option for low cost Government Insurance with 2% operating expenses; or identical coverage high-price Private Insurance with 40% operating expenses
.
WHAT a deal!

Then why is:

1. almost nobody signing up for OBAMACARE ?

2. Congressional Democrats threatening The Obamaniac that they will side with Republicans ?

3. Congressional Democrats now talking of scrapping the entire socialist catastrophe known as OBAMACARE ?

How would that work exactly? The bill would have to go to Obama for signature. Really think he will sign it? Really think they can get a big enough vote to over-ride his veto? By the way, my sister is coming to visit next week. She wants me to help her sign up for Obamacare on the computer. She is not real computer literate, and she usually votes Republican, but on this she is adamant about signing up. Know why? Because she knows a good deal when she sees one.

The House Of Representatives controls the purse strings. The House merely has to not appropriate any money to implement or fund OBAMACARE in any way at all. The Senate can't do a thing.

You don't know how it works
.
If you are 65 or older; you have Medicare Part-A instead of Obamacare. You can boost Medicare's bells and whistles by adding optional Part-B for a flat-rate deduction of $106 a month from your Social Security check
.
If you are 64 or younger; Obamacare applies to assure hospital emergency rooms don't get stiffed by freeloaders from Arizona; New Mexico; and your favorite people from strange lands to the south
.
Now;
.
Suppose your car gets clobbered by a soccer mom while she is surfing the web on her Ipad; and you wake up in a hospital emergency room with your guts laid out on one side and blood gushing out the other side
.
Before emergency can go to work; they need your obamacare number so their computer can generate the necessary paperwork required by law
.
If you don't have an Obamacare number; you will have to fill out the forms to get one while your guts and blood are spewing all over you and the hospital walls
.
After Obamacare is established they can go to work to save you
.
Once you recover; Obamacare will tack on a monetary penalty because you failed to sign up before the deadline
.
So somehow; you need to get with the program now; not later

The man is a Marxist-Leninist and a natural-born LIAR. His Stalinist OBAMACARE is a catastrophe and his fellow minions and cohorts in congress are running away from it as fast as they can. They're talking now about joining Republicans in congress in killing the whole ridiculous socialist thing.

How's that hopey-changey thing workin out fer ya ?!:)

it will be priceless to see the emperor squirm, blame and lie as he is 'forced' to change obamacare under pressure from his own liberal caucus. While during the shutdown he spouted 'no legislation will pass my desk that changes the ACA in any way' so he could shutdown all GOP initiated legislation to fix his ACA mess.

Exactly. Even on MSNBC this morning they admitted that the White House doesn't treat Congressional Democrats any better than they treat Republicans. The Panel concluded that this White House is a Dictatorship which neither respects nor understands the Constitutional obligations of the Executive Branch. Very Dark Days Ahead for America.

I agree. He's just a former community organizer, the guy who set up the folding chairs in those black community centers, and he has no IDEA what he's doing.

He's also a serial MURDERER who kills Americans without accusation, indictment, trial, nor sentencing.

Isn't the DEMOCRAPS who are supposed to be so zealous in protecting the accused's RIGHTS ?!

The Obamaniac just ignores Americans' Constitutional RIGHTS.

IMPEACH THIS BUM ! THROW STUMBLEBUM JOE IN THERE ! NEXT !

For 12 years Obama was a Constitutional Scholar in the University of Chicago Law School

His exemplary credentials landed him a second term in the Oval Office
.
and yours didn't
.
Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009
.
and you weren't

Why IS that?

Gee, I guess you should run for the House. Your Republican heroes evidently haven't figured out how to do that yet, or I'm sure they would do it.

The Obamaniac is NOT, and NEVER WAS, a "Constitutional Scholar". That is ANOTHER LIE he and his cohorts, minions, sycophants, and fellow travelers always say and perpetuate. He was a sometimes lecturer. Nothing more.

Joe Biden is one of those pesky Roman Catholics you fuss about all the time

Every policy, every legislation, every order forced on Americans by Democrats has been destructive. Period.

The damage has been done. We could repeal any and all of it and still the damage would continue to inflict economic pain and suffering.

They're both corrupt, and Bill isn't eligible.
