The Obamacare Mess

As the provisions of Obamacare kick into gear during Obama’s second term, we can see the consequences playing out:

Wow, the Democrats really screwed up on this one– after disregarding the Constitution and passing Obamacare without reading the bill (since Democrats know what’s best for the American people, who can’t take care of themselves– right?), their constituents are confused about why they’re experiencing  rising costs and higher insurance premiums because of Obamacare.

Update: Democrats trumpeted Obamacare as bringing an end to “discrimination against Americans with pre-existing conditions.”  Well, that didn’t last long!  Just as the provisions of Obamacare are starting to take effect in 2013, we’ve been told that “Tens of thousands of Americans who cannot get health insurance because of preexisting medical problems will be blocked from a program designed to help them because funding is running low. Obama administration officials said Friday that the state-based “high-risk pools” set up under the 2010 health-care law will be closed to new applicants as soon as Saturday and no later than March 2, depending on the state.” This is just more evidence that Obamacare is a dismal failure– it was marketed as a miraculous solution to America’s healthcare problems, but was dependent on non-existent funding.

The “Obamaphone lady” gets another 15 minutes of fame

Who could forget the so-called “Obamaphone lady” who ranted “Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone!”? 

It’s now been revealed that “The U.S. government spent about $2.2 billion last year to provide phones to low-income Americans, but a Wall Street Journal review of the program shows that a large number of those who received the phones haven’t proved they are eligible to receive them.” What a combination: government waste AND fraud!

Obama campaign mocks virgins and tells them to lose their ‘voting virginity’ to Obama

Disgusting: Obama campaign ad tells girls to imagine voting as if they’re losing their virginity to ‘great guy’ Barack Obama. Obama clearly thinks women are stupid and worthless. This suggestive Obama campaign ad mirrors a campaign ad released earlier by Russia’s dictator Vladimir Putin, in which a girl’s vote for Putin is compared to losing her virginity to Putin. We can’t sacrifice our values and self-worth for some extra government benefits.
