    Obama : Republicans' 'Unifying Principle' Is Denying Health Care To 30 Million People

    Obama: Republicans' 'Unifying Principle' Is Denying Health Care To 30 Million People

    "The one unifying principle in the Republican Party at the moment is making sure that 30 million people don't have health care," Obama said, referring to the number of people who will have health insurance as a direct result of the law. "Why is it that my friends in the other party have made the idea of preventing these people from getting health care their holy grail? Their number one priority?"

    The president chuckled as he said Republicans at least used to say they would replace the law with a better health care proposal. Not anymore, he said.


    "There's not even a pretense now that they're going to replace it with something better," Obama said. "The notion is simply that those 30 million people, or the 150 million who are benefiting from other aspects of affordable care, will be better off without it. That's their assertion. Not backed by fact. Not backed by any evidence. It's just become an ideological fixation."
    I have been wondering this for a very long time.

    I was thinking just the other day how Obama's terms will go down in the history books as the lost decade.

    It seems unseemly for the President of the United States to be reduced to providing language for trolling on the internet. Surely he must have something better to do.

    It shows the desperation.

Report after report already show people currently eligible and know about it, don't sign up. They don't want it. Unless of course they have chosen a profession of food stamps and welfare. ( I realize some people need help, I'm referring to those that have pretty much refused to work because Uncle Sugar provides). The main thing most people can count on, is paying new and higher taxes for well, less health care. And who are the 150 million benefiting and how "from other aspects of affordable health care"? He doesn't even bother telling another lie explaining that nonsense.

    That may be true, but that is a different 30 million.

    Unifying Principle of Republicans? That is just offensive. So this is what he describes to the world as being the fundamental truth that serves as the unifying foundation for a system of belief for Republicans. We, he thinks, just do not want certain people to have health care no matter what, that is the president's best reasoning underlying why we take the position we take... this malicious cartoon caricature so prejudiced as to be just flat out offensive.

    I understand that we Never got fooled into thinking that he was ever to be a u-niter, but surely you can see this yourself plainly now, right?

    The president's behavior is becoming increasingly erratic and divisive. This is cause for common concern. I mean he is not just supposed to be president to only the 51%, right?

    You think the health care system we had previously, a system where people could be denied insurance coverage because of a pre existing conditions, to be better then a health care system where a person cannot be denied coverage because of preexisting conditions.
