Update on the Truth about Obama Care
It isn't every day when more then half of the Democrats in the Senate will admit they were wrong and vote to repeal part of President Barack Obama's health care law. This is what happened on 22 Sep 13 when the Senate voted 79-20 to repeal a 2.3 percent sales tax on medical devices. A total of 33 out of 53 Democrats joined all 45 Republicans in voting for the repeal this amendment which was bipartisan with Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah and Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn sponsoring it. Four out of seven members of the Democratic leadership voted for it. The White House says “not so fast”, "Last night's purely symbolic vote has no bearing on the future of the Affordable Care Act and its implementation," said spokesman Brad Carroll. The administration says the industry will benefit from millions of new customers and it should pay. These companies’ customers already have insurance covering these items and this will only make the patient get hit with higher cost, an effect caused by Obama's law. The companies started paying the tax Jan. 1, and this will lead to lay-offs and put a damper on investment. Outside economists expect the industry will be able to pass on most of the tax increase to customers so the customer will get slammed with even more cost because of this law. The Manhattan Institute analyzed rates around the country and found men’s cost will rise 99 percent and 55 percent for women. Worse yet Analysts expect lowest plan deductibles (Bronze Plan) to be between $5,000 to $6,000 with an out of pocket costs on top of the deductibles in some cases around $5,500"; Forbes says it will be around $7,450 per family of 4 on average per year. The end game for these leftist and Obamacare supporters is socialized medicine for the nation. They will take the best health care system in the world and turn into a third world country medical system...that is unless you have many, then you can afford the best doctors.
The unpopular Obamacare law passed in 2010 and has never been very popular; a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds once loyal Democrats has been steadily turning against Obamacare. Over all 78% of leftist Democrats support the law while 46% of moderate Democrats support Obamacare; the public shows only 42% support the law. If the Democrats were listening to their people and their people’s wishes 58% would be voting against Obamacare to match their people wishes would have only 42% voting for it instead of the 78% of liberal/leftist; they are doing whatever they want because they know better then you what’s best for you. They also believe the IRS should be tracking everything yet the IRS just failed to account for $67 Million in Obamacare cost; do you really want them tracking everything? A poll of Democrats just conducted for IBD by TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence found that only 22% said they wanted the justices to uphold the entire law, while 37% said strike down the whole thing and 30% said to strike down only the law’s individual mandate to buy health insurance. Another 10% were unsure. What does this tell you? Its easy, 22% agree with it with 10% not sure; that leaves 68% want it struck down or changed and this is just Democrats. When the public as a whole was surveyed, 70% thought healthcare will be worse under Obamacare. The Democrats, or at lease the liberal ones are ignoring the wishes of their constituents which are the ones they are accountable to and the same for the Republicans.
So what have we seen? Well the people of the US, both Democrats and Republicans do not like this bill and as politicians do, We the People were ignored. All the Democrats pretty much voted to fund Obamacare funding, many being forced by the Democratic leadership which believe they are more important then you. An example is Sen. Joe Manchin. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., a moderate Democrat, said Thursday that he'd support a spending bill that also delays the law's requirement on individuals to buy health insurance. "There's no way I could not vote for it," Manchin said. "It's very reasonable and sensible." The comment, first reported by Bloomberg, was later confirmed but hours later, the senator said that while he opposes the individual mandate, "I do not believe that this issue should be used to shut down the government, and I will not vote to shut down the government.” He was going to do the right thing but apparently there are people in his own party ready to take down anyone who disagrees with President Obama, Reid, or Pelosi. On the Republican side you had 25 of the Republican leadership which believe they are more important then you as well. My Senator was one of them and I sent him a letter telling him about my many years of support for him but now it is gone; I will vote for a good Independent or maybe a Democrat but he will never get my vote again. If it comes down to two people I just can support, I just won’t vote for a senator. It is pretty bad when your political choice at the poll is between the lesser of two evils. The politicians work for us and I suggest you do the same and vote your people, Democrat or Republican, out of office because they are ignoring the peoples will. If this is such a good system then why did all congress opt out of it? If you are a Republican and wanted to know who the 25 senators who betrayed you and your party, they are listed below.
