Skip to comments.Obama Chief of Staff: Time to Get Over Debate
Posted on 07/01/2012 9:50:52 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
(CNN) Jack Lew, the White House chief of staff, said Sunday the Supreme Court decision upholding President Barack Obamas health care measure should put to rest the national debate over the laws practicality.
Speaking on CNNs State of the Union, Lew said the Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law in 2010, needs to be fully implemented before Americans assess its merit, and that detractors of the law, including Obamas opponent in the 2012 presidential election, were using it to divide the country.
This was a plan that Gov. Romney supported, Lew said, and its something that I would have thought he would be proud of.
The national debate over the law, which has been ongoing since the law was implemented, can now end with the courts ruling, Lew said.
Its time now to get over the debate and implement that law, he told CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley. What the American people dont want is, they dont want to be taken back to the old divisive debate. They want to get on with it, and they want us to be focusing on economic growth and creating jobs.

Hmmm, why wouldn’t they welcome a debate on a law (tax) that they think is soooo wonderful?
Not like we've never heard that before....
Mr Chief of Staff - you mean it is time for us to get over the “tax” and implement the “tax”, right? OK, Mr. Lew let’s discuss how we will implement the “tax” or should I say the list of “taxes”. Yes, let’s discuss the “taxes”...
I won't be surprised if this ends up being one of Rush's audio montages tomorrow. It was the Mainstream Mediot talking point for today.
Obvious to anyone who is paying attention, Obamacare will be extremely destructive to economic growth and creating jobs. It will also be loaded with bribes and kickbacks, as companies who give fat campaign contributions to Democrats will be granted waivers.
LoL OBot. ObamaCare is not written in the Constitution. It is not a Constitutional amendment. You lose control of goobermint next year you lose ObamaCare. Buh bye.
Mere peons are not to question this ruling.
He’s not President Obama. He’s Emperor Obamus I.
There will be no further questioning. The court has spoken, and Emperor Obamus I and his henchmen expect all dissent to cease and desist immediately!!
It will be over when these assholes are out of a job come November.
It’s gonna be a long hot summer though.
Some blonde yakker on Fox this morning commented on his remark and called it “arrogant.” They guy yakker said “I don’t know if I’d call it arrogant.”
Kudos to the interchangeable blonde.
The time isn’t quite yet, or quite ever, in the struggle for liberty. Better, it’s time for Obama thugs to start looking for new work, like race baiting on the streets of Chicago.
Yep, time to show the penalty tax due on April 15 if Americans don’t vote against Democrats.
I’ll get over it once these lame arse idiots admit that they lied and lied on numerous occasions to the American people given in oral arguments before the Supreme Court, the administrations attorneys argued as they knew they had to that the mandate was constitutional as a tax. =.=
“Lew said the Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law in 2010, needs to be fully implemented before Americans assess its merit”
“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it” -Nancy Pelosi
Just going to disreagrd what the “emperor” and what his so-called henchmen say, period.
These LIB asshat administration fools need to be shunned and, if not shunned, laughed at. November can’t get here soon enough. Out...all LIBs (and RINOs) out.
SCOTUS says “constitutional” = law is “practical”
When the democrats “won” the Dred Scott decision, decent Americans did not give up and accept the loss of freedom. When the democrats “won” the Roe v. Wade decision, decent Americans did not give up and accept the death of innocents. Now that the democrats “won” the first ObamaCare, decent Americans will not give up and accept the loss of freedom and harm to the innocent. We overturned the first, at a terrible cost to America but a cost much more acceptable than the decision Democrats attempted to force on us. We’re still fighting the second battle, with more than 40 million innocents dead so far. We will never give up on the third battle.
