Skip to comments.Christie jabs Obama: ObamaCare a 'failure'
Posted on 07/13/2014 6:26:31 PM PDT by Innovative
In what could be the latest move toward a 2016 presidential bid, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) offered a wide-ranging critique of President Obamas domestic and foreign policies.
Speaking to reporters at the National Governors Association on Saturday, Christie labeled Obamacare, the administrations signature legislation, a failure on a whole number of levels and said it should be repealed.
But has to be repeal and replace with what. It cant just be about repeal, Christie told the audience. What Ive said before is, what Republicans need to be doing is putting forth alternatives for what should be a better healthcare system. He also urged his GOP colleagues to keep bringing up their opposition to same-sex marriage, even though a series of court decisions have overturned many statewide gay marriage bans.

I know Romney and McCain aren't very popular around here -- to say the least -- I personally think they would have been a million times better than Obama, but I think we knew where they stood on issues.
But I don't think Christie can be trusted -- I do hope we can run some other good Republicans who can beat him and beat the Dem, whether Hillary or whoever.
According to Christie, Republicans need to replace ObamaCare with another state run boondoggle with their name on it instead.
Of course Christie cannot be trusted. He is far to the left, and has shown it again and again.
And there’s nothing about this current statement that is conservative. Obamacare must be repealed. But it must also be replaced.
Replaced with what? Christiecare, of course.
So, I guess he’s satisfied with the fed response to Hurricane Sandy. I mean, they had a wonderful hug.
Christie wants to replace Obamacare with Christiecare, and it would be like exchanging one sack of crap for another.
Well, governor. I'm sure you've made Barry feel bad. Maybe you should give him a hug.
It’s really simple: The obligations of the United States for Social Security and MediCare are way beyond unsustainable. To get out of this mess they need young people to pay FICA taxes (illegals) and old people to die. There is no other formula that works for the government without facing the bankruptcy it cast in stone at least forty years ago.
Fat boi and Barry the fraud Soetoro. BFF’s for evah.
I don't trust him at all. And I think his "jabs" at Mister Obama are mere performances (and he thinks we must be pretty stupid).
1. (IIRC) he has a history of preaching agressive gun control measures
2. (By all apparent measure) he did what he could to scuttle Mitt, and that hug was major "ammo" for the pro-Obama nets, and
3. While I try to avoid judging folks by their appearance, one suspects that Mister Christie has little or no self-control (not good if one wants to be our POTUS).
Trust this guy?
Romney is NWO and Obama light. Goodness...everyone knows Romney is not a solution to our financial problems.
If we don’t get someone to address the financial issues and national debt with jobs....then there won’t be a country to worry about.
I think Perry would make the best president of the currently “known” candidates — he had great success in Texas — if only he can get through the election process...
I think it’s time for people to do a better job researching candidates and their real ideas before voting. Vet their track record ...both failure and successes.
I believe Perry would make a GREAT president also, unfortunately LIV
CAN’T look past someone being able to speak or LIE publicly!!!!!! George
Bush had a horrible time with public speaking LOOK what the MSM did to
him with the name calling, stupid, idiot, ect. ect. Yet Sheila Jackson Lee is
just OKIE DOKIE!!!!!!
That is classic!
As a Chunko-American myself, I should not be laughing at this ... but I am.
Obama just instgrammed Christie: Wow Dude! I thought we were like friends. Whatever Man. Wow!
I could recite that old childrens verse, Fatty and Skinny went to bed, Fatty rolled over and....
I saw an article just today about how if the Cleveland team is in the playoffs because now they have Lebron James, it could conflict with the GOP Convention.
An early convention means exactly one thing: The winner will have much longer to move to the center and gain votes. My guess is that the GOP is counting on a Romney, Christie or Bush to win and need the extra weeks to cuddle up with the left.
“To get out of this mess they need young people to pay FICA taxes (illegals)”
That may be part of their plan, but illegals take far more than they pay. And the only way for Socialized Security to work is to have more high wage earners subsidizing the lower earners. Illegals will be in the latter category. For the few that actually pay taxes.
From the States, yes. Not so much from the Feds.
Seems a way to just keep the SS Ponzi scheme operational for just a few more years. Long term, with more low wage earners getting more than they’ve paid in, it will collapse.
Long term, like ... a few decades at best ;(
States - 36 have decided they can’t handle paying 10% of expanded Medicaid in their budgets. How could they handle more welfare, food stamps, Obamacare? And state budgets have to balance, they don’t have printing presses. Guess the feds just couldn’t care less?
That's another fine mess you got us into Barry."
