The Patriot Post® · 'This Thing Is Working'
Barack Obama spiked the political football again Thursday, claiming that some eight million people have signed up for ObamaCare health insurance and declaring, “It’s well past time to move on as a country and focus our energy on the issues that people are most concerned about, and that continues to be the economy.” No word on how many have paid for their coverage and therefore actually enrolled. And for the record, the number of insurance plans canceled by Obama’s legislation exceeds the number who have actually enrolled in new plans through the government exchanges. Furthermore, the reason “people are most concerned about the economy” is because Obama’s “economic recovery” has been as “successful” as his endeavor to socialize medicine. As for his suggestion that Democrats should not avoid running on this behemoth boondoggle, they know that this law will eventually be a lightening rod for every medical service or delivery complaint nationwide – and by extension any Democrat who voted for it will also be a lightening rod.
