And the first shoe drops....Obamacare being abandoned by Obama

Post by GreatNPowerfulOz on Sat Oct 15, 2011 3:11 pm

The long term care provision is being abandoned as fiscally impossible...a huge blow to Obamacare as it was touted as a means to offset the overall costs of the health care package from being a deficit spending program to breaking even by lowering long terms costs associated with care; in short, the very part of the plan which "balanced it" has been proven impossible to implement by the people who crafted it in the first place.

If they had listened....we told them it wouldn't work 19 months ago.

What specifically are talking about? There's no such thing as "Obamacare", except the health care that Barack Hussein Obama Jr. receives as president of the United States. And since George Walker Bush, William Jefferson Clinton, George Herbert Walker Bush, and James Earl Carter all receive the same care, that care is more properly called Obama-WBush-Clinton-HWBush-Carter-care, or perhaps Obamacare/WBushcare/Clintoncare/HWBushcare/Cartercare. Quite a couple of mouthfuls, don't you think?

"The Act is often referred to by the nickname "Obamacare", which has been characterized as pejorative[160][161][162] but continues to be widely used to refer to the legislation, largely by its opponents.[163] Use of the term in a positive sense has however been suggested by Democratic politicians such as John Conyers (D-MI).[164] President Obama said subsequently, "I have no problem with people saying Obama cares. I do care."[165] Because of the number of "Obamacare" search engine queries, the Department of Health and Human Services purchased Google advertisements, triggered by the term, to direct people to the official HHS site.[163]" ~ Wikipedia, "Obamacare"

Perhaps Google is your best friend?

Are talking about Obama-WBush-Clinton-HWBush-Carter-care or Obamacare/WBushcare/Clintoncare/HWBushcare/Cartercare?

I'm kinda bemused that the liberals don't want to address this topic. If Obama is abandoning it...it must be bad.

I see over the nose on my face. Most people whose noses are of normal size see over the noses on their faces.

Why bother to comment on it. They put Obamacare on it because it promotes the bashing of the POTUS. people freaked when they heard that they could be fined for not having health ins. Well it was to be a sliding scale rate depending on income and just who is going to pay for YOUR care in an emergency or hospital if you DON'T have insurance? The taxpayer that is who..But they promote fear and bend facts and those that do not do any research believes them. If they had dealt more with bringing the insurance and drug companies under control we might of got somewhere. There was no give and take . Some of the republicans said up front that their only intention was to bring this presidency down period. They have not even attempted to compromise. This is BS from the word go. But hey let us go ahead and let the insurance companies and pharms. make a killing.

That being said, Congress assumed a power forbidden it by the United States Constitution.

A commentary may lie in the new architectural design of Ground Zero. The original "footprint" of the twin towers now suggests two sinks into which the Hopes of contemporary America are draining away.
