Obama wants you in the Exchange. Yesterday during the U.S. House Judiciary hearing on ‘The President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws,’ Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was blunt about President Obama’s plan.
Read carefully when politicians speak. I was reading a special section of The Wall Street Journal that included interviews with various speakers at WSJ’s annual CEO Council. This week, I’ll share a few of my thoughts on remarks made by President Obama and Governor Chris Christie.
President Obama didn’t have a teleprompter. On November 14, the president held a press conference to announce that he was implementing yet another “administrative fix” to the Obamacare without the consent of Congress. When he got to the Q&A with reporters, it got interesting. More on that in a moment.
Sometimes an “apology” isn’t. President Obama said Obamacare would let us keep our health insurance, but as of today, at least 4.2 million people have already been told they are losing their insurance coverage in December because of Obamacare. Some 16 million cancellations are expected. This is our “Christmas present” from the President and Congressional Democrats.
“The Affordable Care Act is not just a website,” said President Obama two weeks ago. This is truth, not spin. But Obama has not stopped spinning. He denies that he really meant, “if you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan”:
More than 1.5 million people have lost their insurance due to Obamacare. CBS News talked to Dianne Barrette, a 56-year old Florida woman who pays $54 per month today for her insurance, but will pay $591 per month under Obamacare – a 994% increase.
They spent months telling us would never be like this. But look at what it is now and realize national health care will be just like the Obamacare Exchange debacle: Delays, denials of service, waiting lines, no one answering the phone, and a president that says, “Keep trying.”
Obamacare must not be lost in the debt ceiling debate. Try not to be distracted by false claims of America defaulting on its debt. According to Ronald Reagan’s deputy assistant Treasury secretary David Malpass, writing Oct. 10 in The Wall Street Journal:
Two new options for Obamacare resistance await. The first is found below in “News to Know” (Exchange Opt-Out Declaration). The second is a very important lawsuit is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court for consideration. This lawsuit will make the case that the individual and employer mandates are void due to unconstitutional processes engaged by the Democrat-led U.S. Congress. Without the mandates (and their penalties), Obamacare is toothless.
October 1 is a phony deadline. Ignore it. Nobody has to sign up for Obamacare. Absolutely nothing has to happen on October 1. Instead, October 1 is the first day to refuse to enroll in Obama's exchanges (refuse2enroll.org). In six days, you can begin your own personal Obamacare resistance campaign. Our motto: Resist. Repeal. Reclaim.
