From the stage, Cartwright said President Obama “was out over his ski tips” when he said Americans would be able to keep their health-care plans if they liked them. In reality, “if you like your policy, and it still remains grandfathered in, and it doesn’t change, and it applies within the law, then you can keep it,” he said. “And he should have said that.”

“Shoulda, woulda, coulda!” a woman shouted from the front rows.

"“Shoulda, woulda, coulda!” a woman shouted from the front rows."

And so it begins.

Stupid Dems never realized they were dooming their party when they passed this monstrosity. Now let's just hope the stupider Republicans don't ride in to save the day.

All Democrats lie. There’s no reason to listen to what they say.

This is CartWRONG’s first major doing as a Congressman. He’s off to a wonderful start!

He took out one the few moderate rat Congressmen (Tim Holden) in the 2012 primary.

...and you all would still have to vote for it.

Do you seriously believe that Democrats would have had the votes to pass it if Obama were to have said that?

Everyone is acting as if all Obama had to do was speak with a little more clarity, and that history would otherwise have proceeded exactly as it did.

Get all these Dems defending 0bamaCare on tape now because they will fall silent in a few months. IMO the backlash is going to get so strong they will be fearing more than merely losing an election.

I agree. Sadly, for most of us making decisions about our representative government, it’s a matter of degree.
