During a panel event last year about how the legislation passed, turning
over a sixth of the U.S. economy to the government, Obamacare architect
Jonathan Gruber admitted that the Obama administration went through
"tortuous" measures to keep the facts about the legislation from the
American people. ....this bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score
the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes the bill dies.
Okay? So it’s written to do that," Gruber said.[Keep Reading]
My Comment: Obamacare was written to deceive. It was built on lies. The administration showed contempt for the American people. And don't forget that the votes of reluctant Democrats in Nebraska and Louisiana were purchased by giving sweetheart deals to those states, and then it was forced through only, passing by one vote. And, those who voted for it, did not understand it. As Nancy Pelosi said "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it." And, then after it was passed it was illegally tweaked by executive action twenty-some times and exemptions were given to unions and the parts that would result in public discontent were delayed until after the election. And, it is not working. Premiums are rising and many who signed up are not renewing. Congress should immediately repeal the Affordable Care Act. We know President Obama will veto a repeal, but Congress should do it anyway. Those who oppose repeal would be on record. Obama will not allow a bill repealing his signature legislation to become law. After the veto of the repeal, Congress should pass bill after bill in an attempt to amend it beyond recognition.
