The obamacare mandate is nothing short of a law that makes it illegal to be too poor to afford health insurance.
I like how people blame a president.
In case you don't know, our government exists right now to prop up and promote economic initiatives. The government SHOULD be there to build and maintain roads, staff and arm an organized military, and provide education and health care. THAT'S IT!
Oil companies run this government. Along with insurance and medical companies.
Just look around and it's pretty clear. Look at the Gulf Oil Spill.
The government tried to get involved but they were push out by BP. The EPA told them to stop using COREXIT, which causes the oil to coagulate and sink, but the chemical is VERY hazardous. In fact, it's illegal to use in Europe because is so dangerous to human health en.wikipedia.org...
BP said they stopped using COREXIT in July 2010 once the well head was capped but there are reports out there that COREXIT is still being used today
Obama has very little to do with the economy (as like any president).
It's Big Oil my friend. Do a quick search about Huey Long, the once governor of Louisiana
He was behind a movement to get control of the oil companies that were raping of LA (and still do today) and take back control of how the oil was being taking out of the state. He was assassinated because of it.
Our president is nothing more than a figurehead, not unlike the Queen/king of England.
Already, companies are downsizing and reducing hours of workers so that they can avoid the new requirements.
What were they thinking when they passed this?
You can't solve the healthcare problems in this country by mandating the purchase of health insurance any more than you can solve homelessness by mandating the purchase of homeowners insurance, or improve access to transportation by mandating those without cars to purchase auto insurance.
Idiots, all of them on both sides of the aisle.
PEOPLE DO NOT WANT HEALTH INSURANCE, THEY WANT AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE.edit on 9/24/13 by AnonymousCitizen because: Add all-caps screaming, since this is a rant after all.
