"Republicans' biggest fear is not that the Affordable Care Act will fail -- it's that (it) will succeed." Succeed? In destroying the greatest health care system in the world, perhaps. In driving doctors, in droves, out of the profession. In scarcity and waiting lines. In sending thousands into part-time employment. In enormous health care cost hikes. In forcing us into a single-payer system, which is to say full-blown socialized medicine, an essential component of an overall socialist economy.

"Not only will it help lower costs for businesses, but it will free up entrepreneurship in this country." Oh, my gosh -- free up entrepreneurship? This is on the order of the former Soviet Union's claiming its constitution guaranteed personal liberties for its enslaved citizens and subjects.

"Think about that: Good health insurance for the cost of your cell phone bill, or less." For whom? And even if it will be "good health insurance," will it be for good health care, which should be even more important? Of course not. Not a chance.

"Because of the ACA, 3 million young adults under age 26 have gained coverage by staying on their parents' plan." Is it really a good thing that our government is encouraging our young people to stay out of the workforce and on their computers in their parents' basements? How about we work toward the day we can celebrate their return to the workforce, Mr. President?

Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal provides examples of the ongoing glitches and delays with Obamacare and the difficulties in implementing the law's exchanges. For example, in the words of "The Foundry," the "federally run exchanges in 33 states will not be able to sign applicants up for Medicaid coverage directly." Politico details another Obamacare delay -- postponing enrollment in most of the small-business exchanges scheduled to open Oct. 1.

Has there ever been a bigger hoax perpetrated on the American people -- at least those who possessed the credulity to believe Obama's deceitful claims about the bill -- than Obamacare?

When, if ever, will a strong majority of Americans realize Obama is all about transforming America into a socialist state and not the best interests of America -- unless you view socialism, a historically failed system, as being in America's best interests -- and hold his Democratic Party accountable?

My money is on 2014 -- and 2016, unless the feckless among us prevail.
