Obama Taunts GOP: “Affordable health care is worse than a law that allowed slaveowners get their runaway slaves back”

Well, isn’t that charming? Thank goodness America elected a man who would bring us all together or something.

He’s now just making fun of hyperbolic things that Republicans have said about the law. “Affordable health care is worse than a law that allowed slaveowners get their runaway slaves back,” is how he paraphrases one state legislator who compared the ACA to the Fugitive Slave Act.


“It is interesting how over the last several years the Republican party has just spun itself up about this issue.” He describes the Republican posture as “we have to shut this thing down before people find out they like it.”

Yes, that’s it. Everyone knows how awesomely popular this will be, so it must be stopped. Speaking of the wondrous ObamaCare, these morons just announced another delay.

The Obama administration is delaying another piece of Obamacare – this time postponing online enrollment in some of the small-business exchanges scheduled to open Oct. 1, sources tell POLITICO.

Small businesses looking to enroll in coverage on so-called SHOP exchanges run by the federal government will be able to submit a paper application on Oct. 1 – they just won’t be able to enroll online.

The delay is expected to further stoke Republican-led concerns that the law is not ready and should be stopped before 2014.

He also accuses the GOP of blackmail. What a guy. The collapse is well under way, so just  let it collapse.

    Republicans in house should repass the bill – fund OBAMCARE – but put in language repealing all the delays and exemptions. Have criminal and financial penalties for anyone in government who delays or fails to 100% implement the WHOLE LAW. I think the law would be repealed within a year.

    What a fool Obama is… the father of American slavery was a black man, yes, a black man.
    Prior to Anthony Johnson, all slaves of all races, were by law to be set free after seven years and given fifty acres of land. Anthony Johnson, the black man, didn’t want to let his black slave free so went to court and got the law changed allowing slavery and deeming slaves to be property. Look it up.
    Anthony Johnson (c1600 — 1670) was a black Angolan.

    This president is a damn child. I don’t believe I have seen another politician at any level be so condescending and mocking to US citizens.

    Someone needs to explain that Obama DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER to delay any of the ACA Implementation dates.

    I know the Repubs don’t care, but the American people DO.

    Hammer it home. If the ACA is so wonderful — why the delays? Why the exemptions? Don’t those both point out Obama’s lies?

    Of course they do. If only we had some kind of national organization that published facts about events both domestic and foreign, that was there to inform the public and speak truth to power … if only … if only …
