Obama: Health care law 'is here to stay'
politico.com ^ | 7/5/12 | R.J. Epstein

Posted on 07/05/2012 11:50:06 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

President Obama said that repealing his signature health care law is not an option.

"I'll work with anybody who wants to work with me to continue to improve our health care system and our health care laws, but the law I passed is here to stay," Obama said at a campaign event in Ohio.

I hope he keeps this up because he's energizing ROmeny supporters and lulling his own supporters into a false sense of security. After all, if it's a fact that “Obamacare is here to stay”, it doesn't matter who is elected in November, right? So, maybe a few Obama voters won't bother to vote.

Good point. The ‘here to stay’ mantra is actually a bad campaign strategy for the reasons you’ve stated. It diffuses any energizing his constituents may have had. He’s BRILLIANT! LOL

actually....the only way that repeal may / might get some lets is if obama actually beats this drum a lot. if he were just to go away and be quiet, the GOP would lose its sense of direction, because they are, let’s face it, a bunch of dumbasses.

but if obama keeps this up, then maybe, just maybe, the GOP might get a clue adn actually force a vote on repeal after obama loses re election.

maybe.

Barry saying that communism “is here to stay” is just plain stupid. Like I’ve always said, the boy doesn’t know anything about America and/or Americans. He’s clueless.

This will prove to be just one more of the scores of broken promises and out and out lies this disgusting anti-American, progressive/maxist has told to gain power, and now to try and hold onto it.

I believe there is a Repeal vote scheduled in the House for either July 9 or 11. Get them all on record. It will never see the light of day in the Senate though.

While the law was being reviewed, the JR and the Supremes, Barry said it was a law passed by a duely elected majority and being reviewed by a bunch of Right Wing Radicals.

Now that JR has stretched the Consitution to fit the law, Barry calls it "The Law I Passed."

This guy needs to be put out to his exorbitantly rich tax-payer funded pasture. Of course it won't last very long because the government will run out of credit with which to pay it.

If they don’t, we’ll know where we live now. And it won’t be the United States of America.

Obama is projecting here, but if not repealed, the law will entrench itself into what’s left of our society. It will become the “Fifth Rail” of politics, and there will be no un-doing it. Before long, even Republicans will have to run on “improving healthcare” under the law. They may take a different tack, saying that they will improve the law in a fiscally-responsibly way that uses market forces to improve healthcare. But by then, it will be out of the market’s control, and fully under the control of government.

Obama is doubling down because he thinks the American public is stupid. I believe that’s how his people view the voting public because this is a terrible message to use.

One of the biggest bold faced lies, one that a truly independent media would have made clear. The fact that not even the most liberal Republican supported his “reform” shows just how willing he was to work with “anybody” who wanted to work with him.

Obama: ...the law I passed is here to stay,"

Did anyone notice yet another show of contempt for the Constitution by Obama? Presidents don't pass laws, Congresses do. And in this instance, he's rubbing our collective faces in the muck by proclaiming that this abomination, passed in the dead of night with all kinds of bribes, is "here to stay."

We must find a way to REPEAL THE WHOLE DEAL!

When Obama said “The Law I PASSED” that was a slip of the tongue there by the Kenyan big eared freak. I have been thinking this from the beginning. Somehow Obama and his hired goons blackmailed Roberts into passing Obamacare. They found out some dirt about him and used it against him. Obama would never have said the law “I passed” unless he had some hand in the Supreme Court ruling the way that they did..either that or he is an egomaniac freak, which is true as well

40% of US physicians are over the age of 55, and Obamacare may increase the demand for health care by 30%. It may be "here to stay" but it's a train wreck, and Zero and his minions have not a clue as to how bad a wreck this is going to be.

Always watch how the anti-American media uses quotation marks to protect Hussein.

Hussein said, “I’ll work with anybody who wants to work with me to continue to improve our health care system and our health care laws, but the law I passed is here to stay,”

Big media simply used “is here to stay” in the headline, leaving out Hussein’s narcissism for him.

Kind of like how they add the “g” at the end of his action words when he really says, “goin’” or “havin’”.

FU Obama and the fawning Hussein Heads you rode in on!
