    It’s a gamble that Obama thinks people won’t pick up on his desperation for putting off the employer mandate till 2015 when the mid-terms are over. It’s a gamble Obama will lose. People are smarter that he realizes. Yes, he’s got his low-information voters and such. But there will be still a huge backlash because individuals will still have to comply before the mid-terms.

    Obama had this travesty rammed down his throat just like the rest of us, but he’s worse off – he has to get the thing off the ground.

    You can call it ‘ObamaCare’ all you like, but it was an act of generosity by the GOP to their good buddies in the insurance industry. No one else will benefit, no one with any sense at all thinks they will benefit, because this is not only more of the same, it is mandated.

    It wasn’t Obama’s call in any case. Congress did the deed.

    Ya lets wait till after the 2014 elections and then let the fit hit the shan.
    Even the Dums know tat this bill is a recipe for disaster to the Aerican people, but they’d rather wait until there’s nothing anybody can do about it.

    Yo Hawthorne-You are the only person I have ever heard express this opinion. Wow, either you are a political genius or a person way out in the stratosphere.

    I can’t be sure, Hawthorne, but it appears you just posted a blind defense of Obama. I’ve seen nothing anywhere to support your contention.

    In case you’ve forgotten, not one Republican in the House voted to approve the PPACA. Not. One. The house was still in Pelosi’s incapable hands then.

    @Francis Lapeyre

    Call me cynical but, if it passed without any republican votes, don’t you think it was a good move on their part (politically speaking)? Congress critters aren’t generally very bright but everything they do is geared toward re-election. IMHO

    Rather than trading insults, why not work for a better system — single payer.

    @Hawthorne: ????? It’s called Obamacare because it is his plan!! The democrat controlled Congress only did what he told them to do. Remember “we’ll pass it first and then we’ll read it”(Nancy Pelosi)?

    “President Obama has no constitutional authority to amend his own bill”….“He has no constitutional authority to simply waive the LAW. No matter Obama’s determination to suspend his own law, only Congress can do so.”
    “Two years ago, the Obama administration through a memo from a Homeland Security Department bureaucrat, declared it would not enforce our nation’s immigration laws…..Now the Obama administration, through a blog post by an assistant secretary in the Treasury Department, is declaring if won’t even enforce its own health care law on employers.” (the Big employers, not the small ones)
    “We live in a Constitutional Republic. We are a nation governed by laws written by Congress, not memos and blog posts written by bureaucrats.”
    Three Cheers to Congressman Steve King! A real 4th of July message! This president claims to have been a “teacher of the Constitution”….so why does he so often act to place himself above the constitutional laws?

    If you guys in the States had socialized medicine like the rest of the G8 and paid 10.5% of GDP instead of 18% you would not have a deficit and perhaps would not rate 40th in the world for average life expectancy and 33rd for infant mortality.

    I think that you are wrong. Just look at the last two presidential elections. There are enough “takers” out there who will vote that way just to get what they can get; and enough “makers” who will stay home because they don’t have the perfect candidate.

    Real “Obamacare” would have meant a single payer system, not a handout to insurance and “medical” corporate interests. It is long past time for Obama to compromise like Boehner, McConnell, Cheney and Bush, NOT AT All ON ANYTHING!

    Iraq was a result of Democrats, yes, going along, with Republican “leadership”. The most egregious sections of the “Affordable Care Act” ARE those written into those 1,200 or so pages by Republicans in House and Senate that Democrats were yes, dumb enough, to allow to remain.

    The cartoon is anatomically incorrect. The employer mandate, like all of Obozocare, is inserted anally.
