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?
“World Peace 1.20.09.”
typical liberal argument, accuse the opposition of doing the very thing you yourself are guilty of doing. They are out to punish and destroy anyone who disagrees with them. “Join us or else” should be their motto or “resistance is futile” perhaps.
It’s just another branch of the reparations tree. Everything Obastard does is to water that tree in some way. It’s all about getting back at whitey, while screaming “Raciss!!” all the way.
I’m sick of having a President who hates America and Americans.
We all can laugh, and point fingers at Zero and the 0bamunists, but this is a perfect example of the DhimmiCraps controlling the debate:
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.”
Right there, in ONE simple sentence, Zero has postulated the DhimmiCrap position, and his hordes of supporters will parrot this to every whacko journo, on every ‘news’ broadcast, and in every libtard rag until election day.
The dumbass pubbies don’t have a response, and they don’t have ANY voices in opposition. Granted, there are a few outlets and few candidate wannabe’s who argue back. But, there are not nearly enough at this point. And certainly no one at the forefront.
Talking among themselves is NOT going to pull this one out of the fire. The conservative voices must take to the streets; must force the debate. Maybe there is still time. I certainly pray there is...
I loathe that prick more each and every day.
I really do.
Boehner & McConnell, McCain & Graham, etc. are cringing in the corner crying!!! If you think these whimps and weak sister RINOS would take on Obama, you are sadly mistaken!!! Get some courage, backbone & strong determination, Mr. & Mrs. America and Sign/Endorse the Lee/Cruz defund Obamacare petition: “www.dontfundobamacare.com” right now...TODAY!!! Obama lies....all the time!!!
Obama knows exactly how to reach low information voters who base their political views on headlines and the genuflecting media.
he surely is the President of the entire USA, isn’t he?
intolerant petty conniving little man
Everyday it seems there are more and more posters who criticize Republicans more then obunga and his goons on this forum. I’m thinking DU trolls.
Boehner has neither the brains or balls for this but, what he should do is have a press conference where he says HE has decided to delay implementation of the individual obamacare mandate for a year and he should use the EXACT language the puke-in-chief used. Then when some demhole or presstitute says he hasn’t the authority to do so, the answer is: “neither does the president”
Well, let's see if the Surrender Monkey Republicans can somehow explain that many millions are LOSING their insurance because of Obamacare [sic]; and, the lower quality (meaning greater chance you DIE) and unavailability (meaning long, long, looooong waits in line and denials of service) will be the new standard of "care" (unless you live in EXEMPTIONLAND, aka Congress".
Alleged Republicans should use the descriptive word FLIM_FLAM every time they say "obamacare"; for example, the obamacare flim-flam does not let you keep your doctor."
More psychological projection from Obama. He’s rejecting his own unacceptable attributes and is ascribing them to the GOP.
Hurting, Harming and Sticking it to Americans.
Coming from the economic idiot who has been “hurting”, “harming”, and willfully “sticking it to” Americans through his policies (and plans to do even more) for four and a half years, this is pure chutzpah.
Get out of my life you fraud Barry Soetoro. I will do everything to stop you, a-hole.
Forget about it. The Stupid Party has already lost the narrative by not saying that any gov't shutdown is on Obama, not the Republicans. They're defunding Obamacare, not the entire federal gov't.
A deal is gonna get done by some stupid Gang of whatever members and it'll be business as usual.
defunding obamacare would stop americans from being screwed. most don’t want it.
further let’s get rid of the mandate. dammit.
no balls and the republican blank shooters ain’t gonna do anything. they talk big, they do nothing.
Kill Obamacare, NOW....
If need be, shut down the entire country.
Mark Levin video that needs to go viral.
As mentioned in another post the House should pass a bill funding Obamacare on the condition it is implemented as written.
Something stirred all right, but one flush can still take care of it.
Obamacare is so good Obama exempted congressional staffers from it.
Obama is such a hypocrite its sooo easy to counter his hypocrisy.
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.Partisan Media Shill ping.
Classic Alinsky, marxist-agenda projection. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows that O’dingdong is lyin’, blaming the Republicans for his own crimes and aspirations for the vile and destructive “health care” bill.
Hey, you lawless nitwit, I know that 1,000 demons will drag you to hell, but do the right thing for once in your miserable little life and tell the truth.
