Skip to comments.Obama: GOP Favors ‘Hurting,’ ‘Harming’ and ‘Sticking it to’ Americans in Defunding Obamacare Debate
Posted on 08/17/2013 3:07:39 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
In a strongly worded defense of the healthcare law, President Barack Obama accused congressional Republicans who favor defunding Obamacare of a willingness for hurting sick people, harming the economy and sticking it to Americans.
The presidents stirring defense comes after several delays to the law were announced, including this week, a delay in caps on out-of-pocket costs. He said some members of Congress are working to inform constituents about taking care of Obamacare benefits, others arent.
But theres also a group of Republicans in Congress working hard to confuse people, and making empty promises that theyll either shut down the health care law, or, if they dont get their way, theyll shut down the government, Obama said Saturday during his weekly address.
Watch President Obamas strongly worded defense of the new healthcare law:
Think about that. Theyre actually having a debate between hurting Americans who will no longer be denied affordable care just because theyve been sick and harming the economy and millions of Americans in the process and many Republicans are more concerned with how badly this debate will hurt them politically than they are with how badly itll hurt the country, he said.
He later added, A lot of Republicans seem to believe that if they can gum up the works and make this law fail, theyll somehow be sticking it to me. But theyd just be sticking it to you.(continued)

Americans understand that it is Hussein who wants to “stick it” to America.
Hey Obama, maybe for once in your pathetic life you should try telling the damn TRUTH..Obamacare is all about the single payer system progressives have wanted for decades
It’s time for Americans to stand up and tell Barack the Kenyan and his ‘RATS that if ObamaCare is not good enough for them and their union Neanderthals, IT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR AMERICANS.
Barry likes train wrecks
He was, is, and always will be a Community Agitator.
Bammy’s giving us the old Okie-Dokie, bamboozle, flim flam jive talk again.
FACT Obamacare is already failed law.
8/16/13 Obama Presidency A Lengthening Legacy Of Lawlessness
Investors.com ^ | August 16, 2013 | Editorial / FR Posted by jazusamo
Obama's approval numbers are now hitting record lows, yet his critics are often written off as simple- minded "Obama haters." It doesn't wash. The problem is a pattern of presidential lawlessness.
Last time we checked, the Constitution requires the president to "faithfully execute the law." That's no editorial opinion, but Article 2, Section 3, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution, which states that "(The President) shall take care that the Laws be faithfully executed."
Our founders conceived and established in that document three co-equal branches of government to preserve our individual liberty and restrain the unlimited power of government.
But this president and his administration have routinely ignored the divisions of power between the presidency, the Congress and its legislation, and the Supreme Court and its rulings. Constitutionally, the president has the authority to check the legislative branch by recommending legislation to be passed by Congress or through the presidential veto.
But he cannot legislate through executive fiat and he can't pick and choose which parts of the law he will comply with or decline. Nor can he defy judicial rulings from the highest court in the land. But that's what he's done. In just the latest example, President Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder has directed federal prosecutors to conceal the amount of drugs seized during an arrest to circumvent mandatory minimum sentences set by Congress in 1986.
Whether one agrees with that law or not, its legal authority lies within the constitutional powers of Congress, not the executive branch. And that's the issue. It's part of a growing litany of presidential lawlessness:
Aug. 14, 2013: The Obama administration delayed the provision in ObamaCare to cap out-of-pocket health care costs, picking and choosing parts of the law to enforce, which is to exceed its authority. (Excerpt) Read more at news.investors.com ...
How bad can things get?
Obama is the epitome of evil. His regime is larded with like-minded Marxist ninnyhammers who delight in sticking another knife in America. Our nation resembles a pin cushion and is dying of a thousand wounds.
He took $900,000,000,000 in “Stimulus Money” and doled it out to HIS SUPPORTERS in the Public Sector Unions, and to his Big Donours and Bundlers, in the Form of “Subsidies” for their “Shell” Companies. He gave it to them. Then he UNILATERALLY Changed the Bankruptcy Laws to favor HIS PEOPLE, so that when these Front Companies went Belly Up - which they were always intended to do - Obama’s Money Men got THEIRS first, skimming some off the top for their Benefactor’s coffers. Many of us have a strong hunch where all that money went, that John Corzine “misplaced” Or, why he hasn’t been Charged with ANYTHING by that incompetent racist running the Injustice Department?
He had his Energy and Interior Secretaries FORGE DOCUMENTS to a Federal Judge, and then put in place an ILLEGAL Drilling Moratorium in the Gulf, up in Alaska, and up and down our East and West Coastlines. He remains, to this day - In Contempt of a Federal Court. (Sounds like a Misdemeanor to me. But then, I don’t wet myself at the sound of the Halfrican’s voice)
Bronco Bama is a creature of Generation Whine, comprised of those who were taught that everything they think is right, everything they demand is Law, and everything they want is theirs. All their lives, all they had to do was scream, and Mommy handed over the keys to happiness. Now they’re screaming into a vaccuum. The man behind the curtain is not only not a wizard, but he is not a man.
Washington has absolutely nothing good, to us bitter clingers.
Says the bastard who issued orders to all his agencies to make spending cuts designed to hurt the most people possible when his sequester hit.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!
OK, now the serious rebuttal from Boehner: “Whaa! That Obama’s being mean to me again! Tell him to stoooop!”
ObamaCare doesn’t insure as many as are uninsured now
Funny. Congress and Obama’s cronies have decided they don’t want Obamacare. Why should we?
No, it doesn’t. It throws a lot of people who had insurance they were happy with off of it.
Yep, and gives it to people who never bothered to try and get it
So, was Obama wearing his clown mask when he spewed this demagoguery?
