It had to happen sooner or later, and former President Barack Obama has weighed in on the Senate bill to replace Obamacare. In a 100 word essay, Mr. Obama jumped right over the rhetoric restraining wall and went right after Republicans. I guess he is required to do that to protect his “legacy,” but this is way over the top and filled with hipocracy. I guess you are not expected to see that he is accusing this bill of exactly what Obamaare was guilty of. Geez.
As Written By Allen B. West:
The Democrat Party is its own worst PR firm. If you just wait long enough — and it’s not often that long – they’ll contradict themselves, evidencing their abject hypocrisy.
And so it is that not too long ago, some Democrats were holding hands with Republicans, singing kumbaya and talking about the intensity of the rhetoric and how it had to be toned down. This was the immediate action drill response after the heinous assassination attempt on Republican Members of Congress, resulting in Rep. Steve Scalise being critically wounded. Blessings that Steve’s condition continues to slowly improve.
However, now that the Senate Republicans have released their healthcare plan, the Democrats have gone right back to their trick bag, like Senator Elizabeth Warren talking about “blood money.” We hear the references to people being killed, Republicans are mean and evil, and Hillary Clinton chimes in and calls the Republicans the “death party.” Yep, they’ve certainly toned down that rhetoric, huh?
So when all these over the top, emotional and dangerous quotes are reiterated and repeated at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS…well, don’t be surprised when we have another James Hodgkinson pop up. And we’ll once again have Joy Reid justifying the shooting of a Republican Member of Congress because of a voting record, or for taking a policy position opposing progressive socialists.
And look, guess who jumped in on the conversation?
As reported by the Washington Post, “Former president Barack Obama posted a nearly 1,000-word critique of the Senate health-care bill Thursday on Facebook, warning, “This bill will do you harm.” While Obama has repeatedly defended the Affordable Care Act, which represents perhaps his most significant domestic legislative achievement, Thursday’s statement was even more pointed than his previous comments.
Calling the GOP leadership’s bill “a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America,” he called on Americans to push back against congressional Republicans. “Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family — this bill will do you harm,” the former president wrote. “And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.”
“So I still hope that there are enough Republicans in Congress who remember that public service is not about sport or notching a political win, that there’s a reason we all chose to serve in the first place, and that hopefully, it’s to make people’s lives better, not worse,” he wrote.”
Boy, these chuckleheads just make it too easy! Now, is this the same Barack Obama who lectured us about more civil discourse after the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords? And now he’s talking about meanness and “this bill will do you harm?” How, former Mr. President, a paper cut? Obama says this “is not about sport or notching a political win” — hmm, wasn’t he the one who said in 2009, “I won, get over it?” I guess these liberal progressives really believe we don’t have a brain or the capacity to recall their previous statements.
Then again, young Otto Warmbier was just buried in his hometown. Perhaps I missed it, but did Barack Barry Soetoro Hussein Obama say anything by way of a Facebook post apologizing for his “strategic patience” that cost that young American his life? Well, that’s mean, that action of Obama did harm. Thanks to Obama, a healthy young American fella was tortured into a coma, then died. I suppose I could apply a little play on words here, as it shows just how much “Obamacared.”
So, my recommendation to ol’ Barry is to find a nice safe space, grab a binky and a nice cup of chamomile tea, and Sierra-Tango-Hotel-Uniform!
We are in this situation with our healthcare because of you and this anchor about our necks called Obamacare. You, Barack, unless you’ve forgotten, were awarded the Politifact “Lie of the Year” in 2013 for saying that we could keep our doctors and our insurance. You say the Senate GOP healthcare plan is “a massive transfer of wealth from the middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America”…what a grand lie and deception.
What about your own Obamacare massive wealth redistribution plan that told young healthy people they would pay for others? What about the twenty taxes that were part of Obamacare, and the ignorance of a “tanning tax?” Why was it necessary to raise taxes on capital gains, dividends, and rob Medicare Part D? Why did you nationalize college student loans and raise the interest rates on our deserving college students, then come back and cry about college student debt? Why would you tax Health Savings Accounts instead of expanding them so that Americans have a “tax free” method of taking care of their routine medical practices and procedures?
You assail the insurance industry but why did Obamacare, through the risk corridors, promise the insurance industry a taxpayer funded bailout when the inevitable would happen…insurance premiums would rise astronomically and folks would reject your mandate to unconstitutionally purchase a private sector……
