From The Liar in Chief: Barack Obama urges ‘Political Courage’ to save Un-Affordable Care Act & His Legacy
THE AUDACITY OF A LIAR!!!
Last night, Barack Obama called for members of Congress not to repeal his dismal and failed legacy as he called on them to exercise “political courage.” REALLY, political courage? You mean the political courage it took Obama to lie to the American people to get his failed healthcare law passed? You all remember that you would be able to keep your doctor and health insurance coverage if you wanted to. You remember that it would lower insurance premiums. How did that work our for you America? You mean it takes political courage to lie? Because America, that is what Obama and Democrats did to pass Obamacare. Don’t buy the lies. Obamacare is doomed to failure and would collapse upon itself had nothing been done.
Politifact Lie of the Year: ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it’
OBAMA LIES … IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTHCARE PLAN YOU CAN KEEP IT
Barack Obama on Sunday night called on members of Congress to exercise the “political courage” to not repeal Obamacare — his first public comments about the law since the House voted to repeal it on Thursday, and a rare entry into the current political debate since leaving office.
“I hope they understand that courage means not simply doing what’s politically expedient, but doing what, deep in our hearts, we know is right,” Obama said, in a speech here at the John F. Kennedy Library accepting the Profiles in Courage award in honor of what would have been Kennedy’s 100th birthday.
“I expect to be busy, if not with a second career, at least a second act,” Obama said, promising more involvement.
Citing those who lost their seats after voting for the healthcare law in 2010, Obama described his “fervent hope” that current members “recognize it takes little courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential — but it takes some courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm, those who often have no access to the corridors of power.”
Obama: We will lower your premiums $2500 per family per year
Now the Democrat talking point lie is that Obamacare gave 21 million people healthcare coverage. Hmm, how many of those people had insurance coverage they liked and were forced off it and forced on to Obamacare?
WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA.
Talk About Being 100% Political … Democrats in House Sing … “Hey Hey Goodbye” After House Votes to Repeal Obamacare
House Democrats Taunt Republicans as Health Care Passes with ‘Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye’ …
Following the passing of the repeal of Obamacare, House Democrats sprang into premeditated song and serenaded the House halls with ‘Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye’. REALLY? Are you serious? Not caring one iota about the American people, the insane insurance premium hikes of Obamacare, the lies that you could keep your doctor or your healthcare plan, these Democrat fools instead were more concerned about politics. The hell with the American people and the disastrous health care plan they inflicted upon America. How childish can House Democrats get? It is a complete embarrassment these people are in elected office. A note to Trump, drain the damn swamp!
The Democrats sang “Hey Hey Goodbye” as a form of mockery to the GOP and a reference to they will lose their jobs in the 2018 midterm elections because of this this vote. REALLY? Obamacare was going to fail anyhow, Trump and the GOP did America a favor. Is the new replacement to Obamacare perfect, not a chance. A lot of deals are going to have to be make to get it thru the Senate, but make no mistake about it Democrats and Americans … OBAMACARE WAS A LIE AND A TOTAL FAILURE IN A DEATH SPIRAL.
Hey Dems, this is what losing looks like, keep it up. Because the Obama hopey-changey years are over and being dismantled one brick at a time.
After the vote, a chant broke out on the House Floor:
Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na
Hey Hey Hey
The chant, of course, was from “Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” by Steam — oft heard at sporting events.
According to multiple reporters on Twitter, the chant did not come from House Republicans celebrating the bill passage, but from Democrats signaling their belief that the vote will help cost the republicans their seats in the midterms.
House Democrats also waved goodbye towards their Republican colleagues as the final votes were tallied. The chant lasted for nearly a full minute.
HOUSE FINALLY REPEALS OBAMACARE …
After campaigning on the issue for nearly seven years, House Republicans have finally passed a health care bill to repeal and replace the failed disaster known as Obamacare. The legislation passed 217 to 213 with no Democrats joining Republicans to repeal the failed Obamacare law. There were 20 Republicans voted no on the legislation. President Donald Trump praised House Speaker Paul Ryan and said he’s confident in Senate passage and predicted an “unbelievable victory.” “Trump went on to say, “As far as I’m concerned, your premiums are going to come down.”
Make no mistake about it America, Obamacare was a lie fed to you by Barack Obama and Democrats. Do I think this legislation is perfect, not a chance, but Obamacare was a failing disaster.
House Republicans on Thursday narrowly approved their sweeping health care bill aimed at fulfilling a campaign promise to upend ObamaCare, after resuscitating legislation that had flatlined on the floor not six weeks earlier.
The revised American Health Care Act passed on a 217-213 vote.
“We’re going to get this finished,” President Trump declared in a celebratory Rose Garden event, surrounded by Republican congressional allies shortly after the vote. He vowed premiums and deductibles will be “coming down” and the Affordable Care Act is “essentially dead.”
The passage marked Republicans’ biggest step yet toward replacing the Obama administration’s signature domestic policy law. The bill heads next to the Senate, however, where it faces an uncertain fate.
I can only hope that this is the beginning of really providing affordable and fair insurance coverage to Americans who want insurance. not forced to purchase government sponsored and unaffordable insurance. My person opinion having been in the healthcare field for nearly 30 years is that the fix should have been more market driven, not a spoon fed insurance plan. Individuals are going to have to start taking responsibility for their lives and stop depending on government, that goes for Republicans too.

Democrats were unable to stop the GOP vote aimed at President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement. But after the final vote was cast, they chanted “nah nah nah nah hey hey hey goodbye” to their Republican colleagues, with a few members waving, as they believe the vote will lead to many GOP lawmakers losing their seats in the November 2018 midterms.
Thursday marks a political milestone — one that has painfully eluded Trump and House leaders for months. The controversial health care bill delivered Trump the biggest political defeat of his short presidency in March, when the legislation had to be yanked from the House floor because it simply didn’t have enough support.
Under pressure from an antsy Trump looking to score a big political victory, Republican leaders tried again last week, hoping to to get to 216 votes ahead of the President’s symbolically important 100-day mark in office. That effort, too, failed.
IT TAKES A SCAMMER TO RECOGNIZE A SCAM …
From the architect who brought America the lie and scam known to all as Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber says that the GOP replacement to Obamacare is a scam. REALLY? Unlike the the scam that was perpetrated on the American people where Barack Obama lied to the American people and said you could keep your doctor, insurance and hospital if you liked it. Wasn’t Obamacare also supposed to bring down the cost of premiums? By the way, how’s that $10,000 deductible working out for you America? Obamacare is the greatest scams ever forced down the throats of Americans.
I do not begin to claim that the current form of the GOP replacement to the so-called Affordable Healthcare Act is perfect, however, do not ever forget the BS that Americans were fed by people who thought Americans were too stupid (watch video) to understand.
“Any replace[ment] that they would pass would result in millions of Americans losing health insurance, would result in higher premiums, and would result in a huge redistribution from the poor to the rich,” Gruber said on Boston Herald Radio’s “Herald Drive” show with John Sapochetti and Rick Shaffer. “Now if they are happy with that and they are willing to do that, I wouldn’t call that a replacement, I would call that a scam.”
Gruber has stirred up controversy on a number of occasions after videos surfaced of him calling the American public “stupid” for allowing the Affordable Care Act to pass in the first place while being the public face of the legislation. Despite being a public backer of Obamacare, and an antagonist of Republicans’ efforts to repeal the landmark legislation, he doesn’t see much room for the law to improve, such as the single payer system, with the current political climate.
UNINFORMED AMERICA, LET’S HOPE THESE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW HOW TO VOTE EITHER …
As reported at The Hill, 35% of Americans have no clue that Obamacare and the not-so Affordable Care Act are one in the same. How is that possible. The Times article bias tried to portray that people are confused between the two names for the same law, yet some how when we look at the numbers … among Republicans, a higher percentage of 72% said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same. The liberal bias Times would have you believe that the high percentage is a reflection of the party’s longstanding hostility to the law. Sorry Times, maybe it’s because they pay attention more and are more informed.
More than one-third of Americans are unaware that ObamaCare and the Affordable Care Act are the same law.
The figure comes from a new poll by Morning Consult that found 35 percent of Americans do not know ObamaCare is another label — made popular by the GOP — used to describe the Affordable Care Act, enacted under former President Barack Obama in 2010.
About 17 percent of Americans polled thought they were two different laws, and 18 percent said the didn’t know whether they were the same policy or two different things.
The New York Times published the results from the survey on Tuesday. Morning Consult conducted the survey in late January with a sample of 1,890 adults.
The bias analysis of the polling data courtesy of the NY Times:
Sorry Libs, it’s not a matter of confusion, this is a matter of a voter electorate being willfully and woefully uninformed. When one side of the political spectrum is so uninformed regarding what was supposed to be Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, their is a problem and it has nothing to do with confusion. However, ask those same Obamacare-ACA challenged people who the Kardashian’s are and the number skyrockets.
This finding, from a poll by Morning Consult, illustrates the extent of public confusion over a health law that President Trump and Republicans in Congress hope to repeal.
In the survey, 35 percent of respondents said either they thought Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act were different policies (17 percent) or didn’t know if they were the same or different (18 percent). This confusion was more pronounced among people 18 to 29 and those who earn less than $50,000 — two groups that could be significantly affected by repeal.
Among Republicans, a higher percentage (72 percent) said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same, which may reflect the party’s longstanding hostility to the law.
This confusion may affect the public debate over health care policy. If many people think repealing Obamacare would not affect the popular provisions of the A.C.A., they might not understand the potential consequences of the proposals being considered in Washington.
