Repeal Obama Care!

We’ve all heard the GOP wants to repeal “Obama Care.”  While the right decries how bad the bill is,  most on the left also think it’s pretty bad, simply because it didn’t go far enough (I’m among that group).

Finally I’ve found a credible source of comparison – The American College of Physician’s Bob Doherty, who in April wrote, “Is Obama Care really a GOP plan in sheep’s clothing?

The gist:

“The Democrats’ health-reform plan includes no public option and relies on managed competition through exchanges set up much like those for federal employees. The individual mandate in the plan sprang from a Heritage Foundation idea that was endorsed years ago by a range of conservatives and provided the backbone of the Massachusetts plan that was crafted and, until recently, heartily defended by Mitt Romney. It would be fair to describe the new act as Romneycare crossed with the managed-competition bill proposed in 1994 by Republican Sens. John Chafee, David Durenberger, Charles Grassley and Bob Dole — in other words, as a moderate Republican plan. Among its supporters is Durenberger, no one’s idea of a radical socialist.”

Keep these facts in mind when discussing the repeal of Obama Care with anyone interested in repealing it.

For the disgruntled on the left who wanted more.  I’m with you, but Medicare and Social Security weren’t perfect (and still aren’t) when they were enacted.

We have a lot to build on – we need to get at it.  I’ll have more to add on this later.

  1. By elaine rigas April 4, 2013-6:09 pmWhat the goemnnevrt of the united States is doing to its tax-paying citizens is OBSCENE!!!We pay taxes that support the politicians,an infrastructure that supports non-taxpaying citizens and/or noncitizens, finance funds that are sent overseas to countries who conspire to destroy us, and ridiculous vote-grabbing projects, but when we need financial help because of a probable once in a lifetime natural disaster, there are no funds for us. Yet let there be an earthquake or tsunami halfway around the world, and we can send plenty of relief .The goemnnevrt has not maintained our coastlines nor has it protected them. Now entire populations of communities in many states will be destroyed by a goemnnevrt that refuses to take care of its tax-paying citizens. Is this the what the colonists fought for? Is this what the Greatest Generation worked and foughtfor? When you financially destroy the hard working middle class, you are killing the geese that lay the golden eggs that have always been the backbone of this country, both financially and morally. Who would have thought that middle- class genocide would have resulted from FEMA, Washington, and our duly elected officials. Who could have predicted this? Check your history books, Karl Marx did !!!!!
