    Well ... he did say he was a proponent of Single Payer but he couldn't get there right away.

    The idea is to make the healthcare system go all to hell to get the citizenry to cry out for Government control.
    That usually works and this is one guy who spent his life exploting it.

    If Lance Armstrong can be sued for perpetrating a fraud on the public, with little damage done, surely Obama could be sued for committing the Obamacare fraud on the American public, with all the blatantly false advertising and claims.

    CJ, I'm not certain he would be impeached if he even violated a USSC ruling outright.
    He's violating laws on a regular basis so a USSC ruling is a missing piece he hasn't had to explore yet .

    Please elaborate.... what are the blatantly false claims and how do you know as the plan is largely just a plan? It hasn't been implemented so there is no basis to measure it.

    We do know that its prototype, Romneycare, is doing well...

    The two most obvious blatantly false claims are: "this plan will allow you to keep the health insurance plan you have now if you're happy with it" and "this plan will reduce the cost of health insurance for everyone".

    To site examples, I'm in Canada so I can't do it but you'd just have to take a walk around your neighborhood and ask some of your neighbors if the above is true.

    I agree with you that since it hasn't been fully implemented it's hard to quantify all the horrors it will rain down on Americans, but like those above, many intelligent Americans have warned you.

    I'll just toss out another one for you that hasn't been implemented/proven yet because it's tied up in dozens of court cases: "this regulation won't cause Catholic institutions any additional premium costs because we are instructing insurance companies to provide contraceptives for free"

    Good morning, Bubba.

    Typical DC crap! Create a problem, then ride in on a magnificent steed, and correct it, saving us all, making sure everyone knows and appreciates the effort.. and a lot of people buy it...? Nice work when you can get it! I had no problems whatsoever with my health insurance B.O. (before Obama), except now I'm paying more and getting less. Such a deal!

    Re: CBO : 7 Million to Lose their Insurance under Obamacare

    I just saw a comment on the real clear politics site by someone who calls him/herself "D".
    The comment was about Tony Bennett declaring we need gun control or we'll turn into Nazi Germany

    Yes yes yes ... Tony was stupid and exactly the reverse of reality but "D"'s comment was that he/she needed a translation because he/she didn't understand "libberish".

    I'm telling you all this because I'm hereby & forthwith appropriating the word "libberish" for my own use and felt obliged to credit "D".

    Ah ... that feels good.

    Obamacare is a giant democratic subsidy to healthcare/insurance companies--it was never designed to do what they sold it as doing because it exempts the very same people from being punished for not participating that it supposedly is designed to make sure have health insurance.

    But not unexpected!

    It's what we have come to see as normal...make a mistake, then blame someone else... anyone else!

    I sure hope I live long enough to meet one of those perfect beings...it would be the highlight of my life!

    Good morning bubba - I'm pretty sure that Obama can't be sued for any action taken as President, just saying it would be nice if just once a politician who blatantly lies to the public could be taken to court and made to pay - we might get a better quality of politician then, or at least much fewer of them.
