Quote Of The Day: Mandates For Thee, But Not For Me, Edition
One term wonder, most will wonder how he f@@ked-up so much in such a short time.....
Oh if it were only that easy.
I sure Hope the GOP has more than that, Because I really don't want to see 4 More Years of Failed Left Wing Leadership.
Obama certainly criticized the individual mandate that Clinton proposed, but I can't find anywhere where he said that he opposed the idea of a mandate categorically or where he pledged not to impose one. He said that he wanted to make health insurance cheaper for families (which ACA does) and he didn't want to fine people who couldn't afford health insurance for not having health insurance (which ACA does not). Obama's position on mandates certainly shifted, but I wouldn't say that it flipped.
"If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress. Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America."
-- James Madison, Letter to Edmund Pendleton, 1792
Please point out where ACA reduces the cost of health insurance for families.
All over the place, dupe. Read something.
See Romneycare, same thing, cost rises now down to 2%, 70% approval with a bullet...
Their Claim is it will eventually. It's Pure Bunk, Any Relief Found from less Free Riders will be eaten up by the Growing Cost of Care, and the Fact the Bill does Absolutely Nothing to address that Fact.
She cant and wont. But you can expect some really good spin.
You can't find anything that will show ObamaTax lowering anyone's insurance costs. If you could, you would. And if you really think that the healthcare system in Massachusetts is great, then you should be supporting Mitt Romney. It would seem that what you consider to be one of Obama's great achievements is to copy someone else. And I'll go read something when you learn the English language.
