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.

Obama nominates another loser for his new Cabinet

After nominating an anti-Israel pro-terrorist Defense Secretary, Obama will nominate current White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew as the new Treasury Secretary (can it be any more obvious that Obama’s nominations are political favors?).

In response, the top Republican in the Senate Budget Committee says: “Jack Lew must never be Secretary of Treasury… His testimony before the Senate Budget Committee less than two years ago was so outrageous and false that it alone disqualifies… To ‘look the American people in the eye’ and make such a statement remains the most direct and important false assertion during my entire time in Washington.”
