ObamaCare Fix as Bad as ObamaCare Itself | FrontPage Magazine

Last Thursday, to extricate himself from the political consequences of repeatedly and shamelessly lying to the American public, President Obama proposed a “fix” to ObamaCare. ”Insurers can extend current plans that otherwise would be canceled into 2014 and Americans whose plans have been canceled can choose to re-enroll in the same kind of plan,” the president said. ”This fix won’t solve every problem for every person, but it’s going to help a lot of people. Doing more would require work with Congress,” he added, again dismissing the legislative branch of government as an unnecessary impediment to implementing his agenda. Unfortunately for millions of Americans, the fix is as disastrous as ObamaCare itself.
Who can forget all the promises made by Obama while trying to enact the ObamaNoCare act which he wanted to fool the American citizens into embracing. If you have forgotten here is a recap of all the lies that were sold to the American people.
Democrats feel political heat despite ObamaCare ‘fix’ | Fox News

President Obama’s fix to reverse millions of insurance cancellation notices may have eased slightly the pressure he faces, but Democrats at state level still face political trouble and fear what it may mean for the 2014 midterm elections.
One such Democrat is West Virginia Rep. Nick Rahall. The 19-term veteran, a perennial target in a GOP-shifting state, was one of many Democrats who recited to constituents Obama’s assurance that they could keep insurance coverage they liked under the 2010 health care overhaul.
This promise proved untrue and ignited an uproar that eventually forced Obama to reverse himself and on Thursday propose the fix that he claims will allow consumers to keep their plans. The debacle has sent many Democrats scrambling into political self-preservation mode ahead of the 2014 elections.
Rahall was among 39 Democrats who, despite a Obama veto threat, voted Friday for a Republican measure that would let insurers continue selling policies to individuals that fall short of the health care law’s requirements. It was approved 261-157.
“I’m concerned about my integrity with voters who have returned me here for 38 years. They know me enough to know I wouldn’t purposely mislead them,” Rahall said this past week. “They have that confidence in me, and I want them to continue to have that confidence in me.”
We simply can not trust those who lied to us repeatedly to fix the mess they created. Are we really that gullible to expect these lying politicians to actually care about what is good and right after spending so much political capital to sell us on this huge FAIL? If they lied to us to implement this mess do you really think they intend to tell us the truth about fixing it?
All this talk about a ObamaNoCare fix is simply political posturing in hopes that ‘we the people’ will forget how we got this nightmare in the first place. The only thing these lying politicos want to fix is their own campaigns and political aspirations.
Instead of real solutions we are being bombarded with show trials, phony House bills, and a constant barrage of the airwaves with all the ills of ObamaNoCare while these same news outlets were complicit in the implementation of this disaster from day one. When someone actually did stand up and to shed some truth on this disaster the media shouted them down and berated their character.
Ezekiel 34:18-19 (GW)
18 Isn’t it enough for you to feed on the good pasture? Must you trample the rest of the pasture with your feet? You drink clean water. Must you muddy the rest of the water with your feet?
19 Must my sheep eat what your feet have trampled and drink what your feet have muddied?
As usual the ones who pass these laws make sure that they do not have to abide by them but make sure that the rest of us do. These politicians have theirs and then they trample all over the good grain so as not to leave anything behind for the rest of us. It is they who are causing all the ills in our society, and yet they wipe their mouths and say don’t look at me.
America we have bigger problems to contend with than just Obamacare. We must not forget about Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS Scandal, and NSA snooping. The fact is if there wasn’t so much lawlessness happening on all levels of government a horror story like Obamacare would never have happened. But it did because of all the kick-backs. buy-backs, threats, and strong-armed tactics of those pushing for more and more power over individuals.
When most people think of tyranny, and totalitarian government, they think of rigid rules and harshly enforced laws. But what tyranny and big government really involves in the majority of cases is a lot of politically connected law breakers. Regulations offer opportunities for bribery or kickbacks in many ways. Laws can be selectively enforced so that some criminals get protection and offer an unofficial income stream to the ones responsible for enforcing the law. In a democracy, criminals can get the vote out in neighborhoods and then expect favors in return from the winning candidate.
This is political life as usual especially in urban areas where unions make sure that ‘their man or woman’ gets elected to keep up their grip on the purse strings of the well-connected. These racketeers pay off politicians to receive favorable laws or regulations that punish their competition and rewards them with graft and kick-backs, in return they fill the coffers of the politicians and the cycle starts all over again.
We really ought not to be surprised by any of this since this is how things work in D.C.
Yes my friends all is not well in America, and to remedy our ills we need to swallow the painful pill of truth. Washington is not the cure to what ails us it is the cause. And those who made the mess are not qualified to clean up the mess since they really like muddying things up.
But those who are waiting for the Lord will have new strength; they will get wings like eagles: running, they will not be tired, and walking, they will have no weariness. Isaiah 40:31 (BBE)
