Obama: GOP 'Holy Grail' Is 'Making Sure 30 Million People Don't Have Healthcare'
Independent Journal Review ^ | August 11, 2013 | Michael Miller

Posted on 08/11/2013 5:55:02 PM PDT by Kaslin

Friday, Barack “Reach Across the Aisle” Obama had an amped-up message for low-information voters: It is the “holy grail” of Republicans to make sure that 30 million Americans don’t have health insurance.

As reported by The Hill, in addition to saying that blocking ObamaCare has become the GOP’s “holy grail,” Obama called Republican opposition to his troubled healthcare plan (which is opposed by ever-increasing percentage of Americans) an “ideological fixation” as well.

Not only is this guy absolutely horrendous with a terrible record of reaching across the aisle outstanding at “reaching across the aisle,” he’s also pretty good at ridiculing, too. (You don’t suppose he means “fixation” as in his fixation with redistributing wealth, do you?)

“The one unifying principle in the Republican Party at the moment is making sure that 30 million people don’t have healthcare.”

This is what we commonly call a “lie.” Republicans do not want to make sure 30 million people don’t have insurance, and it is absurd to even say that. However, Republicans don’t want to implement a half-assed healthcare bill that would still leave upwards of 26 million (CBO estimate) uninsured.

Here’s to hoping that the American people can open their eyes to see what their President is really doing: dividing America with misleading rhetoric concerning an unpopular piece of legislation that is hardly the best that we can do.

When is somebody going to stand up to this guy and ask why if his stupid forced healthcare pal (which it is not - it is just as SCOTUS said it is - a tax hike)...if whatever you call this Obama plan is so great for everyone, why is Obama and his family exempt form it and why is Congress exempt?

Low Information Voters. These are NO information voters. If they had any information at all it would be a miracle. They are exactly what Obama and the Marxists want and need. People who know nothing, and think about nothing except maybe sex and free stuff.

The kenyan’s goal is to force everyone to pay through the nose for “healthcare” while denying medical treatment to old folks and limiting it severely for everyone else, except, of course, for the Anointed.

Oh Lord, is America tired of all this distortion and prevarication.
If the federal government is going to get involved in providing health care, it should start over and address just those persons who need help. (yes, i know this is not a federal level responsibility or delegated power to begin with... just saying..)

Right now, under Obamacare, the feds are like a prospective tenant who brings a cute little chiwawwah to meet the landlord and then moves with a herd of rottweillers.
If the feds are going to extend their involvement in Americans’ health care.... they should do it with some focus, some precision, and address any genuine problem while leaving the rest of us ALONE, without all the new taxes ... but with our chosen health care access undistrurbed.

I like this article, this defines how I will be next year and the same for the past 7 years. No healthcare insurance. What I get paid in my job, is far above minimum wage. What I have to pay for insurance for my family and I exceeds on average 1/3 of my pay. My current bills are only slightly above 1/3, and incidentals for survival are now approaching 1/2 my pay(gas, utilities, groceries). This leaves me with no discretionary spending money, nor any way to save for retirement or emergencies. Do I complain, not really. Does my family eat well? We try, I refuse to only purchase sub par food, and exist on only hamburger, and pasta while illegals and gimmedats feed on food that is equivalent to the rich. I make sure all of our food is non-gmo and non-growth hormone laden.

So what I have no insurance, we don’t get sick all that much, and if a medical emergency comes up, we will manage the best we can. I would rather pay the Communist IRS penalty for no insurance than give away over a third of my income for something I rarely use to begin with.

The Democrats had to steal 2 seats (the late Kennedy’s seat and Al Franken’s seat) AND buy off several Senators to pass Obamacare with a 60 vote majority. By hook or by crook.

You sound completely foolish with your Sarah Barracuda tag. Sarah actively supported & campaigned for the GOP's champion of amnesty yet fools such as yourself hold this tool out as the savior of conservatism. If you campaign for and support McCain you support amnesty.

And they want dirty air and dirty water, yada, yada. Even with 0bamafraud there will still be many uninsured, and those “fortunate” enough to have access will find it seriously lacking. We will soon witness the disaster of a centrally planned health care system.

The president is delusional if he thinks Republicans care nothing about the healthcare of America, but just wants to deny 30 million people healthcare.

The president is just playing to the intellect of America's low information voters.

Since implementation of Commune-Style Obama’care’ is a privacy violation to the US Constitution, then an injunction needs to be filed with SCOTUS by the Esteemed Speaker of the House, John “Cave-In” Boehner.

The key to success is to bypass all Administration Bureaus.

Oh wait, I forgot that “Cave-In” Boehner is on vaycay for 5 weeks - - - - !

Republicans should be outraged and demanding an apology. This is the most irresponsible thing I’ve ever heard a president say. It is extremely divisive, not constructive and shows no class whatsoever. The fact that a president said it is embarrassing.

If he were a Republican, saying this about Democrats, the media would be all over it. In this case I’m sure they’ll repeat the theme as being true. Wow... we are headed for a huge backlash. This kind of talk can only lead to a bad place.

The bigger lie for the no-nothings and illegals is that they “don’t have healthcare”. If they need it and go to the hospital for critical care it MUST be provided, insured or not. So he lies from the get-go. And if any of these freebie people get on board and then go to a doctor for a checkup— the only way they will GET care is if that doctor is FORCED to see these “gimmee-dats”.
Like your tag. Deo Vindice.

Obama and the rest of the degenerate in your face liar marxist baby killers and sex perverts in elected office nationwide are a symptom of Universal Suffrage imposed via Constitutional Amendment, not the problem per se.

The Founders explicitly warned against Universal Suffrage and deliberately did not put the right to vote in the Constitution.

There is NO solution to this problem short of disenfranchising the parasites.

Its not even on the radar of the blue bloods and country clubbers in the GOP, yet the Marxists continuously work to allow felons and illegal aliens vote, and fight any ID laws.

This Republic is already dead, only collapse and reset remain.

“The one unifying principle in the Republican Party at the moment is making sure that 30 million people don’t have healthcare.”

And Obama says this in the context of supporting a law that will insure 300 million no longer have access to quality and plentiful healthcare - regardless of whether or not they have a mandated "health insurance" policy - what good does that do if no healthcare facility is available to provide you with care? The law has already blocked the construction of countless new facilities, caused others to scale back, and now threatens the continued existence of nonprofit medical facilities. All of this is designed, under the guise of helping the poor, to empower a super-rich, wealthy elite and squeeze everyone else out - which is the true motive behind most if not all of the policies pushed forward by the modern liberal establishment.

I’ve asked myself that question many times about Osama/Obama....and I still have no answer. I do think that he underestimates the American “inner resolve” that is in most of us....tho there are those among us who appear to be sheep...that sounds better than DUMB AS POSTS.....tho the last couple elections have made me wonder. I do think that the generation one was born in tends to make a BIG difference, I was born in 1933, so I am really getting “long in the tooth” so to speak, it is very desturbing to hear myself say that I really don’t know my country now at all.....but I love her, and I’m so very proud of her, and it BREAKS MY HEART and angers me beyond words at what is being allowed to happen to her . I trust no one that is connected in any way with this gov. It is corrupt from the top down....too bad there isn’t a way to clean Washington out and start over again, unfortunately, who would we pick to fill their positions? I’m afraid the citizenry has grown fat and lazy and are too busy deciding which teet to grab for the Free Stuff from the gov. I never thought I’d be where I am today....totally disallusioned with our World, our Country, most of all, we Human Beings.
