Repeal ObamaCare Petition reply

There was a petition by We the People to repeal ObamCare. The main point was that it was hurting the economy and killing jobs. (64,655 signers)

Well, the White House issued a reply and this is all they said to those concerns:

There are a lot of myths out there about the Affordable Care Act. The idea that the health care law will somehow cripple the economy is absolutely one of those myths.
The health care law won’t hurt jobs or the middle class, and it won’t force small businesses to close up shop. It will, however, make health care more affordable and expand health insurance coverage to millions of Americans in a way that allows our nation’s businesses to continue to thrive.”

Oh, their reply was longer but this was the portion that addressed the central concerns. Now I know schools are not what they should be, and maybe a lot of the people are uninformed or naïve on many things.

Heck, 42% of the people don’t even realize ObamaCare is law. That is probably to their benefit because why would people want to repeal it if they don’t realize it is the law?

However, the WH did not address the economic and job concerns. It was really a boilerplate sales pitch for ObamaCare – the thing 42% of people don’t realize is law.

‘Obamacare’ Poll Finds 42% of Americans Unaware It’s Law

By Sarah Parnass

A new poll finds that many Americans are confused about the health care overhaul legislation commonly called “Obamacare.”
The Kaiser Family Foundation released results of a non-partisan study today finding more than 40 percent did not even know the law was in place.
Four in ten Americans (42%) are unaware that the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is still the law of the land,” the report says, “including 12 percent who believe the law has been repealed by Congress, 7 percent who believe it has been overturned by the Supreme Court and 23 percent who say they don’t know enough to say what the status of the law is.”
The survey showed public opinion on Obamacare is at its second-lowest rating in the past two years.

I would have hoped the percentage would be lower. But apparenty many people don’t know much about it either. That does not say much for a big part of the country.

    The assholes will say ANYTHING, lies especially, to get the sheeple to swallow this shit, won’t they? That White House petition site is an absolute joke. Did ANYONE ever believe these assmunches would take ANY of us seriously?

      Clyde, absolutely say anything. They brush us off like a number. I figure they’ll extort the process like everything else, for their benefit. They have the emails of a lot of people from those petitions. What they do with ’em, who knows?

    Good post Bull! Once again the sumbitch is in the land of “I don’t know”! The White Mosque didn’t reply to the economy or jobs for a very good reason…the dissenters are correct. Surely the traitors in the White Mosque have already seen many, many companies changing full time workers to part time workers, so they don’t have to provide them healthcare. There have even been folks fired. The reason all the companies state they had to make these unfortunate decision’s? They all say Obamacide will bankrupt them.

    So oh hell yeah; Obamacide is effecting jobs as it’s adding to the unemployment rate. That obviously also hurts the economy and increases gov spending. Couple this abortion of a law with the economy going south in the second quarter and once again we have another huge f*cking mess created by the Gay Charade.

    As far as 42% not even knowing it’s law…well…that pretty much gives you a good idea how the Traitor In Chief got re-elected. Bad case of the Dumb Ass Disease by self infliction….

      Dave, right it sure is costing us in more ways then one before its in full effect. Exactly. He can say it isn’t so till he’s blue. But dems always think their perception will become reality. Half of them never even lived in the real world. They really don’t care in the end anyway. And all those dumbells just go with their flow.

        Bull, I looked up the definition for self implosion and Webster’s Dictionary now directs a person to look up “Obama Voters” to get the real meaning! I hate to admit that narcissistic, pinko Stalin was smart enough to see this so many years ago, buuuut I gotta give credit where credit is due. Our biggest enemy (Soviet Union) saw so many years ago what would destroy our nation and they’d never have to waste a single bullet to help it happen. Shit…so Stalin was smarter than most Americans in today’s society…piss…I definitely need a drink to let that reality set in!

    Bull,

    Great information article. Boy, it is a disgrace that so many people know nothing about Obamacare so in his mind he can get away with the lies and distortions of this monstrosity.

    I sure wish more people would get involved on something that is going to effect their lives so much and put many people into receiving fines, etc. I heard that these health exchanges are a big boondoggle too. They don’t even have them in place to my understanding. And just wait when middle class families can’t afford any of them.

    Of course many Americans are confused by this law since they had to pass it before they could see what’s in it. That was one of the most asinine things Piglosi ever said and she says a lot of them.

    The Congress repealing Obamacare means absolutely nothing. Greta Van Susteran had a congressman on last night and she said to him, “can’t you just defund it or the IRS police force on this”? (paraphrasing) and he went off to something else so he didn’t have to answer the question.

      Pepp, great comment! La meravigliosa danza intorno al gruppo del problema that we refer to as our useless ass congress have conveniently forgotten they hold the purse strings to everything. Or maybe they just don’t give a shit anymore and they just blow smoke up the voters ass to fool us into thinking they’re on our side. I think I’ll go with option #2….

      Pepp, yes its pretty disgusting. Well now, that’s a good example in the congressman. Obama doesn’t have to spend so much time usurping power if they just forfeit it to him. We need some testosterone in congress. Screw the Senate… they are only putting in their time and doing media appearances. Don’t tell us the House of Reps has been neutered. And yet for every problem the Emporer causes, “its the Repubs in Congress’s fault”.
