Lawmakers who supported Obamacare and spread the president’s ?false statement “if you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan,” are taking the heat from recent ads launched by Americans For Prosperity.
The morning after Tuesday's vote, there is one thing every commentator agreed on. The election of Barack Obama guaranteed that his signature piece of legislation — health reform — can now go forward. Republicans are powerless to stop it.
Hidden by the fog of a presidential campaign and slumping economic recovery is President Obama’s signature achievement: Obamacare.
“Mark Critz has opposed efforts to repeal or defund ObamaCare 20 times.” That’s the message voters in Southwestern Pennsylvania are seeing on television this week thanks to a new ad from the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Media coverage now implies that the U.S. Supreme Court will determine the fate of President Obama's health care law. But nothing the court decides will keep the law alive for more than a brief period of time.
Two years ago this month, as public debate over Obamacare raged, former President Bill Clinton rushed to the hospital because of a heart condition. He immediately underwent a procedure to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries. It was a timely reminder about the dangers of stifling private-sector medical innovation. No one listened.
Last week the House passed with bi-partisan support the Protect Life Act, which amends the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) to assure that no taxpayer dollars will be used to fund abortion. It also assures that health care providers which do not wish to provide abortions are not forced to by government.
Last week, Newt Gingrich released his 21st Century Contract with America, composed of 10 specific legislative proposals he would enact if elected President. In the 1994 Congressional campaigns, Republicans not only rode Newt's Contract with America proposals to Republican majorities in Congress. They maintained their House majority for 12 years, after Republicans had only held a House majority for 2 of the previous 74 years.
President Obama used a series of anecdotes about insurance companies ruthlessly dropping coverage for customers because of pre-existing conditions. He even said his own mother had to fight her health insurance company on her death bed. It turns out most of these stories were false, including the one about his own mother.
A rising chorus of repeal-mongers, outraged at the Obama administration's federal health care power grab, took over Washington this week. Nope, it's not the tea party. It's Democrats Against the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). Yes, Democrats.
