Confirmed: Not thousands but millions of people are losing their health insurance due to Obamacare.

I’ve noted this fact previously, but the full magnitude of this horrible law, as well as the lies Barack Obama told to sell it, has to be underlined repeatedly.

    And from the ashes will rise, what?

    Will it have any political impact?

  • Cotour

    If the president, his administration and the Democrat party is not held personally responsible in the coming elections and they do not pay a substantial political cost for this plain to see incompetence and demonstration of the folly of this level of government involvement in individuals lives, then we are truly broken.

    I think that with true Constitutionally based leadership (Ted Cruz), real solutions to real problems and not go along to get along political maneuvering that a good many entrenched Republicans tend to play, then we will see positive results. If we do not then I do not know what to tell you.

    Assume, “we are truly broken.”

    A single president isn’t going to fix this. We have to fix this. So what do we do?

  • We have to fix this. So what do we do?

    As Cotour said, we have assign the responsibility to Obamacare and its failures to the people who wrote it and passed it, the Democratic Party. We then have to vote that party out of office.

    As for President Obama. he is a lame duck who can’t be voted out of office, but we still have to look coldly and honestly at his performance, as that provides further evidence for voting other Democrats out of office. While Obamacare might be a terrible law, that was still no reason for the Obama administration to have failed so miserably in creating the Obamacare website, other than plain incompetence.

    The Democratic Party supported him, they backed him up, they gave this failure of a president to us. They need to find out that there are consequences for making that kind of bad choice.

    Note that I am only talking about Democrats here, but I have similar opinions about a good number of Republicans, including both Arizona senators. They have been complicite in this disaster, and should bear responsibility as well.

    The people en mass have to “see” this yolk of slavery to the government that is being fashioned by the government and remove their collective heads from beneath it before it literally is too late. That is if the people have not been too drugged by the entitlement pusher, who just happens to also be the government.

    I am hopeful, even optimistic that Obamacare and its continued implementation will be the catalyst that drives the confrontation with idealism that must come. If I had to choose one thing that is essential to this confrontation and success I would have to say it is George Washington type true leadership. That may sound a bit corny but IMO that is in deed what is needed. Is it Ted Cruz or some other Constitutionally based thinker? I think so, but keep in mind the battle is never done. It is eternal.

    This is where the world is going as America rushes to surrender its right to the title “exceptional” and its moral leadership that is being executed by this particular administration (along with most all other administrations by the way), I saw this headline this morning and it is a harbinger:

    Exclusive: Germany, Brazil Turn to U.N. to Restrain American Spies

    As a side note, a friend of mine just started working for the U.N. He is an intelligent and bright person (30 years old) but truly uneducated and idealistic on the particular political subject matter we are discussing here. In his circles he has something to say when he engages me in political conversation it is very apparent that he knows little and stands dumbfounded and confused. And he is far from a stupid person. His comments after working for the U.N. for one month? ” The U. N. is the craziest most bureaucratic and inefficiant place I have ever seen. I don’t know how anything gets done there” . He is an idealistic liberal democrat taken in by the Obama aura.

    Well, it does show how Obamacare was sold with lies but all of these people will have insurance or pay a tax.

  • ken anthony

    Agreed, but voting them out of office isn’t enough. We have not been ‘eternally vigilant’ for generations. This isn’t something that just happened because Obama was elected. We fell down on education and holding the media accountable. That’s what needs to be fixed. Rule of law would be a good starting point as well. Equal justice?

    “Hey it’s just a glitch in an otherwise wonderful system. It’s all the republicans and tea parties fault. Leave it to the government… we’re here to help.”
