Obamacare's failures rise

  • Follow Letters

Obamacare is a failure and needs to be repealed.

First, it was sold as a way to insure 45 million people who did not have insurance. According to The Wall Street Journal, there still will be 30 million people without insurance even after it’s completely rolled out.

Second, the president told us time and again that we could keep our health-care plans, doctors and hospitals. Not true.

Third, he told us time and again our average premiums would go down about $2,500, and in too many cases the opposite is true.

Fourth, everyone who signs up on the website, if they are able to log in, is subject to a security risk.

The law has caused companies to hold their employment down and convert the employees they do have to part time. People can’t find jobs because of the president’s economic policies and regulatory climate, yet are mandated to buy insurance they don’t need and/or can’t afford.

The left claims to be the party of compassion, but right now, there are millions of frightened Americans out there who, before Obamacare, were paying for good insurance, but now have no idea what they are going to do.

The law has nothing to do with health care, but rather one more way this administration has taken away individual liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The administration has lied about and mismanaged every aspect of this rollout. Now the left wants us to believe all will be great after a few years. After all the lies, why would anyone believe that?

The president is too proud to admit he and his fellow Democrats made a huge mistake passing a law that is hurting average Americans. Today, we don’t have as big a health-care problem in this country as we do a management and a hubris problem.

Frank, all you say is true; however,

Frank, all you say is true; however, I'm beginning to think these "failures" are victories from the aspect that the Democrats will say, as some already are, that "we can't do this half way with part government funded/run and part private. In order for this to work we MUST have single payer." I think that is their ultimate goal.

I'd like to think we have enough Republicans with backbones to fight and repeal but I've got a feeling even if we get the Senate, House, and Presidency in '16 there will be those in leadership positions who want to "fix" obamacare and not repeal it.

There is a strong battle for the heart of the Republican party going on and it is going to get stronger. Just look how Bohner came out openly against the conservatives the other day. If he is willing to be like that in public there is no telling what he's like behind closed doors.

by our fruits do we know ourselves

the only way socialized medicine works
is with a very well-educated hard working population
a very well-educated hard working population
does not need socialized medicine
a poorly educated and lazy population
needs socialized medicine
but a poorly educated and lazy population
will elect a government incapable of running socialized medicine
school choice... it's the only way

Bottom line as of the New

Bottom line as of the New Year over 2 million now have ACA health insurance-problem is over 6.2 million have lost insurance and are without. So no net gain this is a dismal failure. But Dee is correct the Dems don't care its all about wealth redistribution which Obama has already signaled will be this years goal. So if you are working individual you may want to rethink and join the masses on the govt dole. Soon no one will be working and Obama will have his marxist dream come true of everyone having the same income-whatever the govt feels that you deserve. Oh I forget the drain of the 4 million on medicare which those poor 2 million will be subsidizing as well as all of us.

Remember this in November and perhaps then some of this insanity can be reversed.

Actually Obamacare is not a failure, it is going exactly as it was intended. The liberals never did want the health care system to be better, they wanted control over it so they can pick and choose who gets cared for. It would not pay to be an old, white conservative under Obamacare, the death panels Sarah Palin accurately pointed out is meant for us. Let us not ever give up our fight to repeal this attack on responsible Americans, our lives literally depend on it.

We Need a Marjority!

For God's sake people, if you really want to repel Obamacare you are going to have to go out in November and vote Conservative in order to gain the majority in the Senate and in the House of Representatives--without a majority in both houses you are never going to repel Obamacare, no matter who is president!

The rates and deductibles and

The rates and deductibles and copays have been going up for the last 10 years, to blame it on Obamacare just isn't reality.

I remember a time when most employers provided health insurance at no charge to the employee and only a nominal fee to cover the employee's family.
