Fox News' fault? Really?

  • Follow Letters

Did you see one of the architects of the “Affordable” Care Act on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show The Kelly File? White House health-care advisor Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of Chicago’s mayor, said the reason the Obamacare website rollout was such a disaster was because of – wait for it – Fox News!

Apparently, if President Obama had only banned Fox from the airwaves as an enemy combatant and a threat to national security prior to Oct. 1, this new law would have been a rose-patched path to euphoria!

Don't put it past them, if they could; they would!!

I'm quite sure they are searching for ways to silence critics now. They will probably use some clever disguise as "safety" or "protecting peoples rights". It drives them insane that they can't force their critics to be silent; just like it drove Mussolini raving mad, until he took them over. These leftists do NOT care about free speech. The only free speech they care about is THEIRS!! They would gladly take the conservative and especially CHRISTIAN voice away!!

..because of Fox news... not
Unpublished

..because of Fox news... not entirely.. but they play a part in it because of all the ignorant sheet that believe their insanity. The rest of the blame would go to the teapublicans who did everything they could to undermine the law instead of actually trying to work with democrats in making it better and not pieced together. There are good parts of the act, marginal parts, and parts that need to be either thrown out or entirely re-worked- but this was the plan from the start.

EMANUEL
Unpublished

Mr. Emanuel showed his utter contempt for all things conservative when he was on Ms. Kelly's program. It showed exactly how the liberal mind works. If something works it's because they're wonderful. If something doesn't work it's someone else's fault. Emanuel's brother in crime has destroyed Chicago with his liberal gangster style tactics. I just wonder what excuse he and his brother will use to put the blame on Fox news or conservatives?

Ezekiel Emanuel is evil just like his brother. They along with the community organizer believe in Social Justice and that USA is to powerful. They are a great danger to this country.

Just keep saying it......the

Just keep saying it......the Republicans...and FOX.....were 100% correct about Obamacare.

It's SO bad that Obama has tried to put off EVERYTHING POSSIBLE until after the 2014 elections but he still cannot hide how bad it is. And everyone is seeing that the things Obama has delayed until after the elections ARE GOING TO BE ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. Obama cannot delay enough of this catastrophe to hide what a disaster it is.

Say it again.....the Republicans.....and FOX.....were, and ARE, 100% right about Obamacare. They were, and are, right about the debt and the budget too but that always takes a while to show up. Just ask Greece.

And the DEMOCRAT senators that have to run for re-election next year........you know......they ones that ALL voted for Obamacare.....they sure look like cats covering up poop right now don't they. Just remember folks....if they are a DEMOCRAT....if they have a (D) by their name.....THEY VOTED FOR THIS DISASTER THAT RUINED YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE, DOUBLED OR TRIPLED IT'S COST, AND RAISED YOUR COPAYS AND DEDUCTIBLES ASTRONOMICALLY. Even old John Barrow voted AGAINST REPEALING IT consistently even though THE REPUBLICANS WERE 100% CORRECT about the horrible consequences of Obamacare. So....remember old John (Nancy let me vote against it the first time after it had already passed) Barrow in the next election. He is just as guilty as the rest of the DEMOCRATS for ruining your health insurance and doubling and tripling the cost. HEY JOHN BARROW....how do you like it now.

I think Zeke's got something

I think Zeke's got something there. In fact, I blame it all on Bill O'Reilly, and maybe a little on Greta. Yeah, those scoundrels. Bill up there with that big old fake grin. It just oozes kill obamacare. And, Greta. Well anyone who talks out of one side of their mouth just has to be up to no good. She has to be involved. Good catch Zeke. By the way, keep on the move. Don't want that death panel to get you.

No, they just think voters are stupid.

Witness the effort now to ban electronic cigarettes in Chicago, apparently because people are tired of paying rising tobacco taxes and the city is losing money over it, so of course it's "for the children;" never mind the relatively high likelihood they'll be shot before they're exposed to too much water vapor.

There is ample evidence that we are and worse....we don't learn from our mistakes.

IMPORTANT DATE in 2.5 days

2.5 OBAMACARE DATE

Remember America was promised on Dec, 01, 2013 that the Obamacare Website would be FIX and RUNNING.

We were promised a Completely Working AHC Website.
There were no Caveats, The President and his staff said it would be working.
They are all on Audio/Video saying they will have it fixed and running by Nov. 31, 2013.

SO if it cannot handle:
* the load it is not working.
* take Info Securely it is not working.
* protect that personal data, it is not workings.

Also if the price is higher or I cannot keep my Doctor or cannot keep my insurance, then the site is a failure, so is Obamacare and I and 310 million CITIZENS have been Lied To by the Socialists.

To the Socialists Looking to Blame anyone but themselves for OBAMACARE. We are approaching if have not already exceed $1Billion Taxpayer$ used and wasted on this website to date. With nothing to show but a number Campaign supporter making $$$$.

Over the last 3+ years, the Socialists have wasted almost a $$$TRILLION in Taxpayer$$$ chasing this Socialist European Pipe Dream. A repeatedly proven mess that has failed to deliver healthcare that meets that of the USA anywhere it was tried.

If the Socialists cannot get their act together after 3+ years, and you cannot trust them to deliver on written promises.....how can you trust them with your LIFE?

The tide has definitely

The tide has definitely turned, at least here in Augusta. The number of pro-ob commenters in 2008 and on were huge. Now you see bod and eel and toot occasionally.

Written some time back. Just now posted. I got distracted.

The media, Obama's Hollywood

The media, Obama's Hollywood buddies, and who ever the left can muster is going to ignore the disaster that is Obama Care! We WILL NOT see stories about the two sibling children who have lost their health insurance because of Obama care (see Drudge report)! You WILL see stories about the guy who got laid off, his unemployment insurance has run out and being on food stamps he can finally get insurance! In 10 months the media et al will have convinced the low information voter that nobody lost their insurance, Obama Care is better than ice cream and anyone that quotes Fox News is a moron!

Owensjef3, did you know 2

Owensjef3, did you know 2 children, siblings in Texas, with cancer have lost their health insurance because of Obama care? I am betting on the American people rejecting this mess! 4 million people have lost their insurance and face higher premiums (in some cases doubled), people are losing their Doctors, and we have not even reached the employer mandate yet where up to 70 million people will lose their insurance! Did you know that insurance companies are being subsidized by tax payers during the first three years of implementation? What part of Obama lying to the American are you betting on?

.
Don't look now, but the vast majority of those signing up are the same deadbeats who now populate the nation's emergency rooms.

They don't pay now, and will not pay for OzBamaCare.

It's YOU who are "betting against America".

Being a Pollyanna for Socialism is not to be confused with patriotism.
