In his usually masterful column today in GOPUSA David Limbaugh (Rush’s brother) hit on Obamacare right on the head with his great accurate description of what it really means and does as compared with Obama’s lies about it .His piece is also folowed by a most excellent response from a responder on there I wish to share with everyone.
Notice how Obama is willing to negotiate with Iran, negotiate with North Korea,negotiate with Putin, but not republicans. Maybe because he identifies with those leaders more than us given his background.
Perhaps Obama was onto something when, as a young author, he zeroed in on the term “audacity” to (subconsciously) telegraph his ambitious designs to fundamentally transform our beloved America.
What word could describe better than audacity Obama’s refusal to accept responsibility for his dreadful policies; his standing before the American people — even today — in the face of the avalanche of evidence proving how terrible Obamacare is and continuing to lie about what it will do; his persistence in mislabeling his unaffordable monstrosity “the Affordable Care Act;” his failure to address the legitimate, undeniable complaints about Obamacare and his insistence — at all costs — on cramming it down Americans’ throats; and his taking — in the words of Time — an “early Obamacare victory lap” just as the horrifying effects of this law are about to descend, in full force, on the American people?
In his “victory lap,” he exclaimed, “We’re now only five days away from finishing the job.” You mean the job of destroying our health care system and economy?
Obama said Republicans are trying to destroy the law because they are scared it will work. He described the GOP’s position as this: “We’ve got to shut this thing down before people realize they like it. … It will mean everything they said wasn’t true and they were just playing politics.”
On Thursday, just five days from the scheduled implementation of this infernal boondoggle, the White House tweeted up a storm about the wonders of this law — though study after study is being dumped on the public, even by the liberal media, conceding what a disaster it’s going to be and how utterly different its effects will be from Obama’s promises.
Consider a few of the White House’s audacious tweets quoting Obama:
“Tell your friends, tell your classmates, and tell your family members about their new health care choices.” How about instead, we tell the liberal New York Times, which just reported that patients will likely have fewer choices?
“Since I signed the Affordable Care Act into law we’ve seen the slowest growth in health care costs on record.” Yes, just as Obama’s the most frugal president in 60 years, a uniter and a fierce proponent of the free market.
“You’ve got new choices, new competition, and many of you will have cheaper prices.” By “many,” does he mean, perhaps, a few thousand in a nation of about 314 million? What might he say about Forbes reporting that Obamacare will increase average individual-market insurance premiums by 99 percent for men and 62 percent for women?
“Republicans’ biggest fear is not that the Affordable Care Act will fail — it’s that (it) will succeed.” Succeed? In destroying the greatest health care system in the world, perhaps. In driving doctors, in droves, out of the profession. In scarcity and waiting lines. In sending thousands into part-time employment. In enormous health care cost hikes. In forcing us into a single-payer system, which is to say full-blown socialized medicine, an essential component of an overall socialist economy.
“Not only will it help lower costs for businesses, but it will free up entrepreneurship in this country.” Oh, my gosh — free up entrepreneurship? This is on the order of the former Soviet Union’s claiming its constitution guaranteed personal liberties for its enslaved citizens and subjects.
“Think about that: Good health insurance for the cost of your cell phone bill, or less.” For whom? And even if it will be “good health insurance,” will it be for good health care, which should be even more important? Of course not. Not a chance.
“Because of the ACA, 3 million young adults under age 26 have gained coverage by staying on their parents’ plan.” Is it really a good thing that our government is encouraging our young people to stay out of the workforce and on their computers in their parents’ basements? How about we work toward the day we can celebrate their return to the workforce, Mr. President?
Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal provides examples of the ongoing glitches and delays with Obamacare and the difficulties in implementing the law’s exchanges. For example, in the words of “The Foundry,” the “federally run exchanges in 33 states will not be able to sign applicants up for Medicaid coverage directly.” Politico details another Obamacare delay — postponing enrollment in most of the small-business exchanges scheduled to open Oct. 1.
Has there ever been a bigger hoax perpetrated on the American people — at least those who possessed the credulity to believe Obama’s deceitful claims about the bill — than Obamacare?
When, if ever, will a strong majority of Americans realize Obama is all about transforming America into a socialist state and not the best interests of America — unless you view socialism, a historically failed system, as being in America’s best interests — and hold his Democratic Party accountable?
My money is on 2014 — and 2016, unless the feckless among us prevail.

I really wanted this guy (Barry Soetoro) to succeeed when he was first elected. I didn’t vote for him, but wanted to see if he could be the great uniter; one who could get past the partisan and racial divides in this country. As I listened to him, I kept asking myself, am I the only one who doesn’t believe him? Does he have his own set of facts that I’m not privy to, or am I missing something? I mean, I’m a pretty smart guy but what he’s telling us just doesn’t add up. Shortly into his first term, I’d realized that he just lies ALL THE TIME. His teleprompter is full of equivocation and falsehood, his lies flow like water and he’s careful not to depart from his carefully crafted cool facade, but I am no longer fooled. I have a few radical ideas about Obamacare and a federal government shutdown; I say let them both happen on Barry’s watch, shut the governement down and let it force the Legislative and Executive Branches to try to reach an agreement (despite Barry’s insistence the he wouldn’t negotiate) while our troops don’t get paid, welfare checks don’t get cut and foodstamp money dries up (of course we all know who will be blamed by the media, the White House, the Democrat party, etc.,.). Then, after they’ve come to terms, the economy will settle down and we will see the full effect of the ACA just before the mid-term elections! I predict the Dems who voted for that monstrosity will be replaced. We will prevail despite Barry’s best efforts to destroy America. God Bless America.
