Obamacare Has to Go

The surprise victory of Republican David Jolly this year for a congressional seat in Florida has given new life to voters who had been depressed about the power of the Obama campaign machine. Even more surprising to the media was that ObamaCare turned out to be the winning issue for Republicans. The Democratic congressional candidate outspent the Republican by a million dollars and it was a district that Barack Obama had carried in 2012. But the Democratic candidate's message about Obamacare, "fix, don't repeal" and "mend, don't amend" was a loser because the American people want Obamacare repealed.

The Democrats thought that Obama's favorite legislation would be a political advantage by now. It was supposed to give health insurance to millions of voters who never had it before, and others would enjoy subsidies and free contraceptives. Most important, all had confidence in Obama's promise that "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" (and keep your health insurance plan, and keep your hospital).

It must have been a rude awakening for many liberals to realize that that was all a lie and you really can't keep your doctor or your insurance plan. Liberals now have to face the fact not only that Obama made a false promise, but that he and his staff knew it was a lie when they wrote those promises on his teleprompter. Millions of Americans have had their health insurance canceled. And the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reports that Obamacare will cause more than two million Americans to lose their jobs.

Nancy Pelosi told members of Congress they had to pass Obamacare so we can all find out what's in it. Well, we are finding out more things we don't like about it every day. We especially don't like the increase in cost of insurance and we don't like the fact that we no longer can go to our favorite doctor.
