Barack Obama’s Legacy, Successes & Failures

Greetings friends,

Each week I’ll be listing one success and one failure of former president Barack Obama. It’s part of a series of blogs in which I’ll examine his legacy, so here goes:

Obama-Winking-300x200Success: He repealed DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act), which was signed into law by former president Bill Clinton (D) with nearly unanimous, bipartisan support. It defined marriage as being between one man and one woman – the basis for the nuclear family. He was absolutely justified in doing so, because DOMA was inherently unconstitutional. It’s the one time he put on his constitutionalist hat, no matter his motive. This one’s not debatable folks, so I’ll stop there.

 

 

SCOTUS picFailure: He made history, when in 2012, the SCOTUS upheld the ACA as a tax instead of the mandate it really is. However, it was a slick way of evading the defined role of the federal government in the constitution, which doesn’t include the authority to meddle in healthcare. It doesn’t matter how you align politically, or how you feel about the ACA, we have a civil duty to raise Hell over this. We have a responsibility to engage in constitutional apologetics. We can amend it legally, the framers spelled out this process for us, but we can’t trample over it. He took ten steps forward in dismantling DOMA, then ironically, took 20 steps back by throwing the very same constitution under the bus with Obamacare. Epic failure.

Until next musing,

Talitha “TK” McEachin

Clarence Thomas: “Northern Liberal Elites Are More Racist Than Southerners”

Friends,

Clarence ThomasRecently, conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas issued a statement stating that based on his experiences in both the North & South that “Northern Liberal Elites Are More Racist”. Many of you have asked my opinion so here goes:

One the one hand, many on the right are touting this as proof that racism is not so bad in the South & is exaggerated by the left. One the other hand many on the left are saying that this is further proof that Clarence Thomas is a sellout & that he is once again trying to assuage & appease white Conservatives. Well, the mistake Thomas makes (and this is not to take away from his experiences in both the North & South) is that his anecdotal evidence doesn’t mean that his experiences are the rule. Neither does mine or any of us. At best, he can say that this was his experience & concluding opinion based on that but that others may have had (or had/have) a different experience growing up in the South & North. See the difference? I could name at least 60-70 people who are the same age as Thomas whom I know personally, who would & have said differently.

It must also be taken into account that Thomas grew up in a somewhat isolated, predominantly black community near Savannah, Ga founded by freed slaves. Most of the people he grew up with were black, so his experience would be different from a black person who grew up in Montgomery, Atlanta or Birmingham during that time. It’s intellectually dishonest (and irresponsible) on his part & ours to ignore that. People are using his anecdotes as proof that liberal whites “are” more “racist”, a word that gets tossed around so frequently that it has all but lost it’s potency. Now, on the other hand, my friends on the left, to call Thomas a sellout or “Uncle Tom” (a misnomer really) or accuse him of lying to lessen the experiences of racism in the South or exaggerate those in the North is unfair as well. You’re the same people who came to Obama’s defense after he issued a statement in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict (and I agreed with you) that those attacking Obama’s experiences/anecdotes of racism/discrimination growing up were wrong to accuse him of lying. They weren’t there, they don’t know what he experienced & generally speaking, you simply cannot tell a person what their experiences was. Well, that same thing must be applied to Clarence Thomas! You can’t tell him what he did or did not experience growing up in the South or living in the North. He has no obligation to say that the South was more racist than the North just because he has black skin, especially if that was not his reality. His experience is his own & you can’t dictate it or take it away from him because it doesn’t follow a historical narrative. Please get that.
There’s an old saying in the South from that time, that “In the South they (whites) don’t care how close you get as long as you don’t get too high, in the North they (whites) don’t care how high you get as long as you don’t get too close” – Is one group of whites more racist than another? Well, it depends on who you ask but I say during that time you had some racism from both, most likely in equal amounts but not equivalent.That’s all I have to say to all about this. Until next time…

George Moss: Why I’m Thoroughly Convinced that Politicians are Crazy!

Friends,

Today I want to share a guest post from my Facebook friend George Moss. George & I agree on most things but like any two people we disagree on a few things. This time he hit the bulls eye and to my delight, with his usual satire and humor:

George MossWHY I AM THOROUGHLY CONVINCED THAT POLITICIANS ARE CRAZY:


1. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg: I need not say anything further here.

2. Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: I will not bore you with an encyclopedia of evidence in this case, but will say that mentioning her name is proof that I was not picking on the East Coast when I mentioned Bloomberg’s name.

3. President Barack Hussein Obama: Nope, it is not because of his name; he made the list because, for four years, President Barack Hussein Obama made one disastrous decision after another, and thought it was Bush’s fault that he was doing, what he, himself, and him, was doing. As for my using his middle name, don’t blame me. I am not the daddy here.

4. Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm: When a mob assembled in Florida to protest Trayvon Martin’s death, Jennifer Granholm donned a “hoodie,” which is about as crazy as you can get because if she thought people were being shot for wearing hoods, she should have put on a business suit.

5. Congress: Most members of Congress are indistinguishable from each other, and, thus, are lumped together as a single entity; they are all crazy. Proof, you say? Let’s start with a $16.5 trillion deficit.

6. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts: We do not think of Supreme Court Justices as being politicians. Well, think again, all the way back to the third Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Marshall. In Roberts’ case, he has repeatedly disproved the theory that the Atom is composed only of Electrons, Neurons, and Protons, and never any Morons. The present Supreme Court Chief Justice could not bring himself to say, recently, that the Federal Government had the power, under Article I, Section 8, Clause 3, to create the commerce it would regulate, so this rocket scientist fell back to Plan B, calling coercive, government created commerce, a federal tax.

7. New York Congressman Charles Rangel: The corrupt Congressman was charged with 13 counts of violating the “Ethics” of the House [What ethics?], in which 11 charges were upheld. Rangel would later go on television to state that he was only guilty of “sloppiness” in his record keeping, as opposed to not paying his own taxes, while taxing us to death in his capacity as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.

8. Texas Representative Shelia Jackson: This woman had the nerve to stand on the House Floor last week, as if she was Harriet Tubman, and announce that she was standing there as a former slave. While she looks rather aged, Congresswoman Shelia Jackson would have to be at least 148 years old to have been a slave. Looking at her mug shot, I just, for the life of me, cannot see how she could possibly be more than 100.

9. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: Christie is the fattest governor in the country, and might be the fattest politician ever, although John Adams, Grover Cleveland, William McKinley, and Theodore Roosevelt were pretty fat, if you ask me. But whether you ask me, or not, I am going to tell you that Christie is fat. Yet, when a doctor, who was trying to help this fatso by suggesting he lose some weight, the Governor took the cupcake from his mouth only long enough to denounce the doctor as not knowing what he was talking about, as if we don’t have eyes.

10. Jesse Jackson, Jr.: The former Chicago Congressman admitted he was crazy, which was described in cryptic medical terms, after he was caught stealing taxpayers’ money.

“And so my fellow Americans,” in case there is any doubt why Washington, D.C., is in the shape it is in, and the country is going to Hades in a Hand Basket, please help me say the pluralized word, “Politicians.”

Obama’s “Truth Team” Caught….Lying

Obama’s “Truth Team” Caught….Lying

I signed up in 2008 on Barack Obama’s website to receive email updates on the campaign and four years later, I still receive the emails. For the most part, I delete them but sometimes I read them (depending on the topic) and I’ll forward them to my Conservative BFF & fellow blogger (a superb writer in his own right) Walter Myers III. Walter & I often have discussions about many political topics of the day and for my part I enjoy these discussions because no matter how much we may agree (or disagree), we always learn from one another and it’s great to have someone else’s perspective before I expound on a topic in a blog. I received the following email after the SCOTUS decision on Obamacare:

Talitha —

I’d love to take a moment to savor yesterday’s Supreme Court decision, but we don’t have time.

Already, Mitt Romney and Republicans are out with outright falsehoods about Obamacare — their favorite distortion being that this is somehow a broad tax on the middle class. In reality, this is all about personal responsibility — and the “tax” they are trying to scare everyone about is actually a penalty for the 1 percent of people who can afford insurance but still choose not to buy it, leaving the rest of us to pay for their health care when they head to the emergency room.

Just like they did when the bill was before Congress, Republicans are playing fast and loose with the truth, making up scary consequences to keep you from knowing all the good things Obamacare does. They’re not telling the truth about what this reform means for millions of middle-class Americans, so I need you to help get the facts out there.

Let’s break it down.

I forwarded this “Truth Team”email to Walter and we discussed these five points which ironically, couldn’t be further from the truth and decided to collaborate. Here’s how Walter and I both feel about Obama’s alleged “truth” regarding the GOP and future president Mitt Romney:

#1 Republican distortion: “The President promised he wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class by a penny with this health care law. Well, that’s been proven false now.”

The facts: President Obama has cut taxes by $3,600 for the average middle-class family over the last three and a half years, and the Republicans fought him nearly every step of the way. From cutting taxes for every working American through the Making Work Pay and payroll tax cuts, to the American Opportunity Tax Credit which gives up to a $10,000 tax credit to help families pay for four years of college, the President has put more money in the pockets of middle-class Americans.

Here’s another fact: Obamacare includes the largest middle-class tax cut for health care in history. According to the independent Congressional Budget Office, 19 million people will receive tax credits — worth an average of about $4,800 each — to help afford health care. These tax credits will finally put health insurance within reach for millions of American families. In short, Obamacare cuts taxes for middle-class families. Period.

Around 1 percent of people — those who can afford to buy coverage but instead choose to opt out, shifting their costs to the rest of us — will pay a penalty. The Supreme Court acknowledged yesterday that this penalty will be charged through the tax code — but that doesn’t change its purpose (to ensure everyone who can afford insurance buys it) or its effect (to lower costs for everyone). It’s also the same policy Mitt Romney implemented when he signed health reform in Massachusetts. For many folks in Massachusetts, the penalties under Romney’s reform were even bigger. In fact, here’s a video of him extolling the virtues of his penalty.

REAL FACTSFirst of all, Obama attempts to fool the public by calling a tax a penalty because he knows that raising taxes is toxic. However, when his legislation is being questioned in from of the court, his lawyers say it is a tax even though he sold it as a penalty. Even once the court says it is a tax, Obama, his administration, and his campaign team continue to lie about it not being a tax. It is the height of hypocrisy, then, to say that Romney is lying. The entire law is based on a lie because it does not make healthcare more affordable and it pays for it through a myriad of new taxes. Moreover, they lied about the costs because now we see that the costs are at least double from what we were originally sold when the legislation passed. Furthermore, in 2010 Mitt Romney stated that his plan was for Massachusetts only and he’d never roll it out as a federal plan. Some of us may not like Romneycare but it was a state decision, which is a reflection of Mitt Romney’s respect for empowered states as the constitutional framers wanted. The “Truth Team”, in it’s rush to demonize Romney and Romneycare, neglects to tell us that 62% of Massachusetts residents surveyed support the healthcare law there.

#2 Romney distortion: Romney said Obamacare meant “a larger and larger government, more and more intrusive in your life — separating you and your doctor.”

The facts: Totally dishonest. In fact, this is one of the most dishonest claims in American politics. First, this isn’t about government. Obamacare builds on and improves the nation’s private health care system.

Second, here’s what it fixes. Before Obamacare, insurance companies had free rein to arbitrarily cap and cancel coverage, and they could waste our premiums on overheads and big CEO bonuses. With Obamacare, there will now be clear rules of the road to give patients and doctors more control over their health care. These rules will make sure that you and your doctor — not your insurance company, and certainly not a Washington bureaucrat — have control over your health.

REAL FACTSThis is absolutely about government so Romney is on target. How can it not be with 150+ new federal agencies to regulate insurance and medical care? And what about the IPAB, a 15-member commission appointed by the president whose purpose is to make annual “legislative proposals” starting in 2014 that will result in reducing the per capita rate of growth in Medicare? That is not more and bigger government intruding into your life between you and your doctor? Please. The best way to improve the nation’s private health care system is to make it more competitive, not coerce it to do the government’s bidding through artificial constructs only Washington bureaucrats could dream up. Also, it really is none of Obama’s business what insurance companies do with their money as long as they follow the law and do not cheat their customers. Bringing up CEO bonuses is nothing but another example of the class warfare that Obama likes to shamelessly foment. The bottom line is not just a Washington bureaucrat, but numerous Washington bureaucrats have control over your health, and Obama is lying if he is telling you that is not the case.

Supporting Evidence:

Price: Obamacare Means 159 New Government Agencies (www.newsmax.com)

#3 Romney distortion: “Obamacare also means that for up to 20 million Americans, they will lose the insurance they currently have.”

The facts: Outright false. If you like the insurance you have, you can keep it. The only thing that’s changed is that your coverage is stronger. Here’s how:

— If you had a lifetime limit (and about 60 percent of employer-based plans did), it’s been lifted.
— If you have a child under the age of 26, they can stay on your plan.
— Insurance companies can no longer discriminate against children with preexisting conditions.
— Starting in 2014, insurance companies will no longer be able to deny anyone insurance based on preexisting conditions, helping up to 129 million Americans get the care they need.
— Insurance companies will no longer be able to charge women more than men for the exact same coverage.
— 54 million Americans already have access to better preventive services, free of charge.
— And if you get sick, your insurance company can’t drop your coverage, and if they deny you a treatment, the law makes sure you have a chance to appeal.

Republicans who tell you Obamacare won’t let you keep your plan if you like it are lying to you — and it is shameful.

REAL FACTS: Obama continues to perpetuate a known lie because millions of Americans will lose some or all of the insurance coverage they have enjoyed. Obamacare causes employers to spend more money on healthcare plans for their employees because of the myriad taxes Obamacare imposes. Thus, costs will necessarily go up. Just look at the list above. When you impose all of these regulations, they will cause prices to rise significantly (which has already happened with the partial implementation of the law thus far). If you lift the lifetime limit, then premiums will have to rise. If you add children to a plan under the age of 26, premiums will rise. If insurance companies can no longer exclude anyone with a preexisting condition, then it will be impossible for an insurance company to stay in business without massive increases in premiums. What’s worse is that since the “penalties” for those who refuse to purchase insurance begins at a low teaser rate, smart people will just wait until they get sick, wreaking havoc on insurance actuarial tables. I don’t know how they will survive this and how any fool could think this is even workable.

It is a known actuarial fact that women have more healthcare needs than men simply due to the different makeup of their bodies, so why can’t they be charged more? If not, then everyone else will have to be charged more. These provisions above are the most egregious of the healthcare and are entirely unworkable, almost designed to make the private insurance industry fail so the government can create a single-payer system. Finally, if you are now giving preventive care to everyone for free, how can costs not rise? Yes, you can say this will lower costs over time, but can you really expect that once people are given “free” healthcare that they will be more responsible? I hardly think so. If you don’t earn your healthcare, you will never appreciate it as you would if you earned it. Thus, I believe that overall health will NOT increase because there is no incentive to be healthy. If premiums are manipulated so that one person can’t be charged the true actuarial cost based on their health, then why would a smoker quit since he/she wouldn’t have to pay appreciably more than the next person who doesn’t smoke? Their is no true price signal that would deter them, and they can also just wait until they get sick to buy healthcare. That is how perverse the healthcare law is since it is NOT market based.

Supporting Evidence:

If You Like Your healthcare Plan Can You Keep It? (The Foundry/Heritage.org)

#4 Republican distortion: “Costs are going up.”

The facts: Health care costs have been going up for decades — that’s one of the reasons President Obama fought to pass the Affordable Care Act. Obamacare makes targeted changes to hold costs down. The President started by taking on the insurance companies. As he said yesterday, the law ensures that insurance companies spend 80% of your premium dollars on your health care, not administrative costs or CEO bonuses. If they don’t follow that rule, they have to send you a rebate. This month, more than 12 million Americans will receive over $1 billion in rebate checks, and we’re all seeing lower premiums because of it.

The law also takes on waste in our health care system. Let’s take just one example. We spend billions of dollars every year treating people for infections they get while they are in the hospital. The health care law helps hospitals take simple but necessary steps to prevent infections. These types of reforms will save up to $35 billion and 60,000 lives.

REAL FACTSObamacare, as discussed above, only adds to the cost and does nothing to lower or contain costs. Also, it is simply common sense that if you bring supposedly 30 million more people into the healthcare system that the cost will go up since these people must now be served. What Obamacare does is just create more complexity and bureaucracy in a system that needs to be simplified and made more efficient. If we can’t make Social Security and Medicare work, what on earth would make someone think another entitlement system will be successful and make costs go down? The problem is not administrative costs and CEO bonuses, even though Obama likes to make this out to be the problem, which only someone who has no knowledge of the insurance industry would fall for. It is pure sophistry. Finally, premiums are already rising, so they can’t say just two years into Obamacare that premiums are going down in any case. In fact, they have had to provide over 1000 waivers to companies who said it was going to be a major burden to them to participate in the law. Ironically, most of the waivers went to union members and also restaurants in the district of none other than Nancy Pelosi:

Supporting Evidence:

1 In 5 of latest Obamacare Waivers Went to Nancy Pelosi’s District (Hot Air)

Over Half of All Obamacare Waivers Given to Union Members (The Weekly Standard)

And finally….

#5 Romney distortion: “Obamacare adds trillions to our deficits and to our national debt.”
The facts: Wrong again. The Affordable Care Act cuts the deficit by over $100 billion during the first ten years. In the following decade, it cuts the deficit by another $1 trillion. Not only is the Romney campaign misleading people about the President’s deficit plan, they won’t tell the truth about their own. Romney would grow the deficit by as much as $5 trillion by giving tax cuts that favor millionaires and billionaires while taking away health care benefits that people rely on. We can’t let them get away with it.
I’m going to be perfectly clear: Mitt Romney has promised that if elected our next president, he will repeal Obamacare on Day One in office. Immediately after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold health care reform yesterday, Romney reminded his supporters: “When I’m President…Obamacare will be over.”
 If Romney gets his way, 105 million Americans could see their lifetime caps reinstated, and more than 3.1 young Americans could be booted off their parent’s plan and could again be without insurance. Up to 17 million children with preexisting conditions could, once again, be at risk of being denied coverage, and insurance companies could once again drop you if you get sick.
REAL FACTSThat is a pure lie that is counter to the CBO’s own projections. The CBO now projects that the health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law. According to the CBO, 3 million fewer people will have health insurance through their employer, while 17 million Americans will be added to Medicaid and 22 million will be getting coverage through government-run exchanges. So Obama care is hardly a solution, and it needs to be repealed in favor of a real solution that does not involve government but increases competition and fixes the inequities in the current system.
Supporting Evidence:

 

Despite the “Truth Team’s” untruthful caveats regarding what would happen if Mitt Romney wins the election, Mitt Romney will not only repeal the Obamatax/Obamacare, he does have a plan to replace it with because no American wants to go back to what we had exactly. In an article in the New York Times, Op/Ed Columnist David Brooks gives us a hint of what Mitt Romney’s replacement for Obamacare would be:

“Moreover, there are alternatives. Despite what you’ve read, there is a coherent Republican plan. The best encapsulation of that approach is found in the National Affairs essay, “How to Replace Obamacare,” by James C. Capretta and Robert E. Moffit. (Mitt Romney has a similar plan, which he unveiled a little while ago and now keeps in a secret compartment in subsection C in the third basement of his 12-car garage).”

Barack Obama’s “Truth Team” is just another part of his smear campaign against the GOP and Mitt Romney but many Americans can see through his political legerdemain and we will not be victims of this “dumbing down” of American citizens. I have faith and trust that Mitt Romney is the man to do the job and I feel confident in saying that my friend Walter Myers III has the same level of trust but either way, unlike Democratic (the majority) blind support of Obama no matter what he does ( or fails to do), we will hold his “feet to the fire” to ensure that these promises are kept along with every other Conservative. To Obama’s “Truth Team” we suggest another career because your lies are transparent and this will only lead you to one place: the unemployment line on November 6th, 2012 behind Barack Obama and all of the rest of his liberal cronies and sycophants.

Obamacare: The Left Won the Battle, The Right Will Win the War

Obamacare: The Left Won the Battle, The Right Will Win the War

Words are not adequate enough to fully express my initial level of shock and disappointment  for the SCOTUS’ ruling on the constitutionality of Obamacare however, I am even more inspired by the increased level of patriotism in light of it. The SCOTUS has ruled that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) or “Obamacare” is unconstitutional under the commerce clause however, it was upheld as constitutional under the taxation clause. Most of the components of it remain in tact and the entire written opinion is here.

 Barack Obama has now added to his resume the largest tax increase on American citizens in US history. A very dangerous precedent has been set in that Congress can tax the citizens for anything – even inactivity. A mandate is a tax. Chief Justice Roberts’ message to Americans is very clear: This is a legislative problem that must be fixed by our elected officials. In other words, this needs to be handled politically for what it is – a tax increase. I think Roberts’ decision will silence Liberals who question the objectivity of the SCOTUS and he, as Chief Justice, is trying to balance maintaining the integrity of  the court and the sovereignty of the constitution. Instead of dealing with Obamacare politically, Republicans thought that they could just shift responsibility to the Supreme Court and it would be repealed or at worse, the individual mandate alone would be repealed. Now as per Chief Justice Roberts, we must take it back to Congress and deal with it politically. One slight benefit of the ruling is that now the Senate can’t filibuster on taxation issues like they could on issues of commerce but it’s up to us to do what is needed to ensure thatObamacare is repealed.

 This ruling is sending shock waves throughout populations of supporters for both political ideologies. Conservatives have gone from outrage to even more fervent support of GOP candidate Mitt Romney and a shift is bound to occur among independent voters as well.Within hours of the ruling, Mitt Romney’s campaign has received more 3 million dollars in donations and counting. All on the Left are not thrilled with this outcome either but both sides share responsibility for it. As analyst Michael Tanner of the CATO Institute reminded us regarding the predecessor for Obamacare (Romneycare) in 2008:

“Outside observers on both the Right and Left praised the program. Edmund Haislmaier of the Heritage Foundation hailed it as “one of the most promising strategies out there.” And Hillary Clinton adviser Stuart Altman said, ‘‘The Massachusetts plan could become a catalyst and a galvanizing event at the national level, and a catalyst for other states.”

Critics of Mitt Romney argue that “Romneycare” is a failure (and it is) but you see, that’s the very reason Romney is  the right man for the job because he has tried it, failed and knows firsthand that Obamacare, modeled after his plan will not work. Massachusetts was an experimental microcosm of socialist inspired healthcare in the local private sector. Romney has tested his healthcare hypothesis in Massachusetts and failed, whereas with President Obama weare the test and his hypothesis is based on Romney’s so as logic dictates, we will fail. Barack Obama either deliberately ignores this in light of the tax revenue he will generate or is afflicted with political myopia so severe that he cannot see it. You decide. Romney has responded to the ruling stating that “In order to get rid of Obamacare we must get rid of Obama” as well as pledged to repeal it if elected and I believe that he will do this and we will make sure he keeps this promise:

Mitt Romney’s Reaction to Obamacare Ruling

As of today, according to the Seattle Times Barack Obama still has his work cut out for him (and I concur):

“Still, the triumph for Obama will not necessarily be enduring. The president now faces the challenge of trying to sell the merits of the health-care law again in the court of public opinion, even as Romney and Republicans can campaign on their promise to repeal the measure.

It was telling that Obama used his address from the East Room two hours after the court’s ruling to explain the law and its benefits to Americans, something that even some supporters said he had failed to do effectively after the law’s passage in 2010.”

Most liberals are celebrating which is quite confusing as well as humorous to me to be honest, because this should be a losing situation for them as well. Their shouts of victory show me that they don’t even understand their ownplatform. So a regurgitated republican healthcare plan that has been proven as a failure is a victory? Huh? They are still forced to buy insurance from the private sector which liberals have rallied against from here to kingdom come, in favor of government run healthcare. I’m starting to think liberalism is a mental disorder today and I would, except for those liberals friends of mine who have remained consistent in their quest for true socialized medicine which they believe can be benevolent and best run by the federal government. One such friend is Independent Liberal bloggerYvette Carnell, a contributor and editor of YourBlackWorld.net who said to me, in reaction to the ruling:

 “The Supreme Court may have limited the Commerce Clause, but they still legalized a mandate to buy PRIVATE health insurance. For me, that’s a problem since there’s no government alternative. You’re forcing me into the market no matter what. What if prices are high, then what? I’m still mandated to participate? I have issues with that…”

 Now of course, I don’t agree with Yvette but at least she has the wisdom to understand what this really means for the healthcare aspect of the liberal platform and no one can dare say that she or other liberals who share this sentiment are inconsistent. Obamacare was a covert love affair between Barack Obama and taxation that the Supreme Court has now brought out into the open. Instead of keeping this affair secret any longer, an engagement has been announced by Chief Justice Roberts and it’s up to us on Tuesday, November 6th 2012 to interrupt the ceremony when asked and speak up or hold our peace for four more years. In effect, liberals celebrating Obamacare is equivalent to a turkey celebrating Thanksgiving.
