DIDN’T WE JUST HAVE AN ELECTION WHERE THE VOTERS CHOSE TO END OBAMACARE?
So much for Barack Obama promising a peaceful transition to president-elect Donald Trump. As reported at Politico, lame-duck Barack Obama plans to meet on Wednesday with congressional Democrats on how to save his failed signature piece of legislation, Obamacare. In direct contract with the will of the American people. The repeal and replacement of Obamacare was on the ballot during the 2016 presidential election that saw Donald Trump win in a electoral college landslide. But, just like how the LEFT and Democrats refuse to acknowledge the Trump victory, they are also trying to resist the will of the people who want an end to Obamacare and have it replaced with something affordable and a more common sense approach to healthcare. After Obama gets back from his lavish vacation, he looks to save his unaffordable, Affordable health care law. Now Obama and Democrats look to bring back the old lies that the GOP looks to take away your healthcare.
Obama looking to continue to inflict pain on America
President Barack Obama will head to Capitol Hill Wednesday to meet with congressional Democrats about how to shield Obamacare from Republican efforts to dismantle it, a Capitol Hill source told POLITICO.
The meeting is at 9 a.m. in the Congressional Visitors Center auditorium and is for both House and Senate Democrats, according to a notice sent to members Friday morning.
Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has promised to stand firm against repeal efforts and subsequently, Republican efforts to replace the Affordable Care Act with a more conservative framework. And a conference call convened by House Democrats earlier this week focused largely on emphasizing the benefits of Obamacare, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) noting that she sees parallels between the current situation and the 2005 effort by then-President George W. Bush to privatize Social Security, according to an aide on the call.
“The Affordable Care Act has been successful in meeting its goals of reducing cost, increasing access and improving quality of care,” Pelosi wrote to members in a “Dear Colleague” letter this week.
Democrats are also launching a broader health care offensive against Republicans that focuses not only on their push to repeal Obamacare but any prospective efforts from the GOP to overhaul Medicare and Medicaid. To that end, Democrats, led by Schumer, Pelosi and liberal firebrand Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — will host a so-called “day of action” on Jan. 15 that is meant to rev up grass roots support for shielding social safety net programs.
Obama lies, lies and more lies
Barack Obama and Democrats refuse to admit that Obamacare has been a lie and a complete failure. Then again, what’s new? They think they also won the 2016 elections. So much for elections having consequences like Obama once told the GOP. That of course is different when the shoe is on the left foot.
