Tag Archives: Repeal Obamacare
Polls show most Americans don’t want the Affordable Care Act repealed and millions of Americans are signing up for coverage, but that has yet to have an impact on Republicans. Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott explains what he thinks it’ll take to convince his colleagues to give up the repeal fight.
President Obama and Democrats passed the Affordable Healthcare Act better known as Obamacare. One of the things the Affordable Healthcare Act addresses is making insurance companies accept people with preexisting conditions.
Like so many other issues, Republicans answer to the millions of people who are uninsured was and is to do nothing. This is another example of Republicans “Just say no” policy to anything President Obama wants, regardless if it benifits the American people. If President Obama is for it… then Republicans are against it.
Republicans has made false statements designed to scare people into being against “Obamacare” which included claiming there would be “Death Panels” According to Wikipedia, ” death panel” was named as PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year”, one of FactCheck’s “whoppers”, and the most outrageous term by the American Dialect Society. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2009/dec/18/politifact-lie-year-death-panels/
Study shows Republicans lie more than Democrats; Obamacare is a perfect example
“While Republicans see a credibility gap in the Obama administration, PolitiFact rates Republicans as the less credible party” said CMPA President Dr Robert Lichter.
PolitiFact rated 32% of Republican claims as “false” or “pants on fire,” compared to 11% of Democratic claims – a 3 to 1 margin. http://www.examiner.com/article/study-shows-republicans-lie-more-than-democrats-obamacare-perfect-example
