Skip to comments.Senator: 'There's No Such Thing as Obamacare'
Posted on 03/31/2014 6:06:14 AM PDT by Hojczyk
Senator Angus King, an independent senator from Maine who caucuses with the Democrats, said this morning on Fox that "There's no such thing as Obamacare."
"Two points if I may, sir," says Fox host Chris Wallace. "One, then why is Harry Reid saying he's not going to allow a vote on the fixes? And, two, speak directly and briefly, becase we're about to run out of time, to Senator Barrasso's comment that a lot of doctors, a lot of hospitals are being excluded by what Obamacare is offering."
"Now, now that's a big -- There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can't sign up for Obamacare. You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It's private insurance," said King.
Commies being commies
Sorry....This bell cannot be unrung.
Well, there is no such thing as the Affordable Health Care Act. It went ‘poof!’ about 30 executive Fiat’s ago, and its descendants have been going ‘poof!’ as well...
They are trying to distance Obama from his signature failure.
Its all over the liberal boards:
Problems with Obamacare - its because those dastardly insurance companies are involved.
There are a lot of straw men for the libs to line up -
1) Greedy Insurance Companies who want to operate with a profit.
2) Greedy Doctors who won’t join the network and lose money on every patient they see.
3) And coming next year...after it becomes obvious the group that has signed up for this mess is highly subsidized, abuses medical care and the emergency room, and pays premiums late...the awful greedy rich who won’t pay any more taxes to keep the party going.
“Now, now that’s a big — There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can’t sign up for Obamacare. You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It’s private insurance,” said King.”
Another Democrat liar.
Too late, Obama himself already called it ‘Obamacare’.
Oh no. Those are the policies we signed up for before obamacare. I lost my free retirees insurance because of it and in addition to medicare, I am paying over $200 for my drug and medigap coverage that was free to me prior. Not a lot but I am on a fixed income. It will not grow any larger but I know that each year before I am “liberally euthanized”, that coverage will cost more.
Hey,Comrade,you forgot the "period".BWAHAHAHA!
“Well, there is no such thing as the Affordable Health Care Act. It went poof! about 30 executive Fiats ago, and its descendants have been going poof! as well...”
Where are the court challenges to the ACA claiming it is unconstitutional because it has been arbitrarily rewritten and exemptions or delays have illegally been granted to specific groups? I believe the inscription over the Supreme Court Building entrance says “Equal Justice Under Law”. This law has not been applied equally and should be struck down for that reason.
The 6 million privately insured people who lost their policies were harmed by the unequal application of the law while those with group policies whose implementation was delayed arbitrarily were benefited. It would seem the 6 million would have legal standing to sue.
I guess that's why they went back to calling it the ACA.
Then every chance he gets he runs flac for Obama and the lefties.
The real idea here is to demonize the insurance companies. Private Insurance? Nope. They are insurance companies that were probably bullied into this deal or else be demonized out of existence.
The outcome? Since dems set this to fail, the fail will be blamed on insurance companies and the dumb public will call for action. Enter single payer, which I am sure is waiting in a desk to be slammed out as the emergency answer.
I do think the dems may have tried too hard to make it all fail too quickly. They are seen as incompetent and it will no longer be easy for people to envision letting them run health care.
Oh ok,so there is no Independent Payment Advisory board,All 15 members ,appointed by the President alone,whose job it is,is to decide if you are of the right age group and have not had your Quota of Quality of life years to qualify for the treatment the doctor has prescribed for you.
Now if you don’t like the decision of the board you might think you could complain,sorry no appeals allowed,the insurance policy you have,regardless of this jerks Copper plan or any other worthless plan has to go by the Almighty Goverment Bureaucrats orders set by the unaccountable board,or the high and mighty no nothing Sebeilius,the abortion queen.
That IS OBAMACARE
speak directly and briefly, becase we’re about to run out of time”
...and that is exactly what the commie wanted to hear. This is music to any dems ears because their entire existence and position is based on lies so when they speak...it’s because they have to. “Killing time” should be their slogan.
OK-—Just call it “DEMCARE” Only DEMS wrote it and only DEMS passed it.
“The 6 million privately insured people who lost their policies were harmed by the unequal application of the law while those with group policies whose implementation was delayed arbitrarily were benefited. It would seem the 6 million would have legal standing to sue”.
I would think the same, but you wait, somehow they will change the law again before that happens. After all, elections are coming up.
In the 1970s, I had a plaque on my office wall:
“If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance - baffle them with bullcrap”
Looks like Angus is going for the second option.
Well Maine has Governor LePage who is doing his best against the moonbats. My Sister-in-law detests him which to me is high praise.
So, will Angus caucus with the Pubbies should the R's win the Senate back in November?
And there is no guttural sound in the middle of King’s first name.
Watch the short video...it is hilarious. This woman is insane in addition to being a mental midget.
Hey, Angus, no matter how hard you try, you will never be as crazy as Nancy Pelosi.
Good effort, though!
Yep, coulda called this a long time ago -
and, this is what will happen when the SHTF in an economic collapse.
Those most responsible for it will blame US.
If they don’t want to call it Obamacare,then let’s see what the options are. You can hardly call it Affordable Care from what I understand. So,I guess that leaves 2 choices;it can be called DemoCare or be known as the Unaffordable Care Act. Either way,it rather looks like ObamaCare will be the name of choice for some time.
So, will Angus caucus with the Pubbies should the R’s win the Senate back in November?

Probably just go ahead and ‘sell himself’ to the highest bidder. Remember “Jumpin’ Jim Jeffries”?
Not all of them have the convictions (good choice of word when discussing LIBS) of Joe Lieberman(I/D/??) CT...
of course he just showed ‘blind loyalty’ to the people who told him ‘THEY’ didn’t want HIM anymore..
Like some are wont to say
‘There is a thin line between Genius and Stupidity’.
Let’s change what we call it. Abra-Ca-Dabra! Presto-Chango! TA-DA!!!!
There! Now it ain’t so bad. The pleebs will love this new branding of our destruction of the health insurance industry.
(It has almost worked for “Man caused global warming”.)
Republicans need to remind people that another 80 million of them are going to lose their health insurance after the elections, because Obama delayed the mandates until after then
I see what you did there. Heh.
The Rat spin of the week...talking points must have went out last night.
You Communist dummy. Obama calls it “ObamaCare.” Pelosi said Democrats should run on “ObamaCare.” It’s such an unprecedented failure that it must be “ObamaCare.”
He may be right because in his mind Obamacare is extortion.
“I wonder if that’s the democrats new campaign meme...”
What they’re trying to say is they didn’t build that.
Then what was that 2500-page bill they passed under cover of darkness and parliamentary shenanigans?
What ? Obamacare is the Newest Snake Oil
Today is Angus Young’s 59th birthday.
He’s the GOOD Angus.
It’s private insurance...
Soon to be tagged as the purveyors of Death Panels.
If only it was true.
Why not just call it “Democide?”
You’re only making it worse for yourself!
All part and parcel of the Kabuki theater production as we head toward a “single payer” system.
