Last month, some GOP Congresspeople tried to get up support to amend the ACA, aka #ObamaCare. Most notable were Senators Ted Cruz & Mike Lee. The President, Harry Reid, and the rest of the Democratic Party said, "No, it's the law. And furthermore, we won't even discuss it. Period."
The government shuts down and in an incredibly shameful move, the Administration makes the shutdown as ugly and painful as possible. They spend time and taxpayer money on scumbag moves like closing down the WWII Memorial.
Incredibly, the Administration and the Main Stream Media blamed Cruz, Lee, Republicans and the Tea Party! Seriously? Anyway, the #ACA is law deal with it.
Fast forward a few weeks - the Healthcare.gov website doesn't work. Why? It isn't ready, insufficient testing. Why did you open it? Sibelius says "We had to, the law said so." Buzz! That's a lie, the ACA law says the Secretary (Sibelius) can open it any time they wish. But deal with it, it's the law.
Fast forward another few days - Numbers start coming out. Few can sign up. Rates and policies don't appeal to anyone except those getting Medicaid. Democrats & MSM explain this is because Republicans want the #ACA to fail. Ummm, what? Well anyway, the #ACA is law, deal with it.
Then the individual market cancellations started coming in. I'm sure this is also the fault of Republicans somehow. Anyway, it's the law, deal with it.
"Insurers can extend current plans that otherwise would have been canceled in 2014," Obama said.
Ahhh, the President does not have that power. The Executive Branch does not just call out changes to law. I thought Obama was the smartest man ever to be President? Not only would it not be possible for him to make such a change to the law, it can't happen no matter how hard he wishes. So what was this? Smoke & mirrors. President Obama just wants you to redirect you frustrations America. Don't fall for it.
