President Obama announced Thursday that 8 million people have signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
He called the feat a success story that Democrats should "forcefully defend and be proud of" in the face of Republican election-year attacks on the law.
He told the press the impending failure of Obamacare is no longer a headline story that should be covered.
Obamacare is here to stay.
If anyone believes the information in this press conference, I have a bridge to sell you.
President Obama’s story, at the press conference, mirrors Paul Krugman’s article one week ago. It is the same talking points filled with half-truths and lies. He offers no evidence, statistics or demographics except his word.
His word has been proven to be shaky in the past.
The real story behind Obamacare is the redistribution of wealth. The socialistic idea has continued to crush economic growth in an economy yearning to grow as a result of all the money that has been printed by the Federal Reserve Bank.
In order to gain real insight into Obamacare and its effect on economic growth please watch this video.
Democratic representatives and senators up for reelection are still running away from President Obama and Obamacare. They realize that he (President Obama) gave another pep talk without substance.
He also belittled Republicans for being misguided, stupid and devoid of ideas.
This is obviously not true but why should President Obama care.
The media is the message.
The temptation is to answer back one point at a time.
There is no need for that rebuttal because Obamacare’s effect is on individual voters directly now. It is no longer an abstraction. It is not pretty.
Those signed up will have high deductibles and limited access to care. The CEO of Wellpoint predicts that health insurance plan premiums will double next year.
Indivduals are starting to see it and feel Obamacare’s effect on their standard of living. They are angry.
The only people who are happy are the people with a preexisting illness or chronic illness who could not buy healthcare insurance at a reasonable price prior to Obamacare. The healthcare industry did not want the risk.
Now they can buy healthcare through the health insurance exchanges and be subsidized by taxpayers. They will be surprised when their access to care is limited.
The problem America will have is that is going to take a little time and waste a lot of taxpayer dollars to repeal the law.
I believe most Americans have noticed that politicians and the traditional media lie. They try to manipulate us into believing the lies.
The saying is if you tell a lie enough times it becomes the truth. The addendum to that cliché’ should be until it affects individuals directly. The then stop believing the lies.
Please watch the video. It is funny and sad.
