Rip it out by the roots.
Under the foot of the Tyrant and his DO”J”
and his IR”S” and his N”S”A, America must now bow,
or die by the ObamaCARE, before the EXEMPT of Congress
and their EXEMPT families and their EXEMPT Staff
and their EXEMPT unions, and the EXEMPT SCOTUS
and their EXEMPT families, and criminals,
and of course, since they won after 911, all EXEMPT Moslems.
There are known unknowns. But there are also unknown unknowns.
If you don’t like your Obamacare, just wait a week and Obama will change it.
“The result, industry executives and experts say, is that some of the larger insurers may pull out of individual markets where they already know they can’t make money.”
This would be ANOTHER big kick in the gut for Obamacare because hundreds of thousands would lose their health insurance policies and their latest set of doctors AGAIN!
