Obama: ‘This Has Never Been a Government Takeover of Health Care’

In a Rose Garden press conference on Thursday, President Barack Obama reacted to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling upholding Obamacare subsidies, calling it “a victory for hard-working Americans,” adding that “this has never been a government takeover of health care.”

“This has never been a government takeover of health care despite cries to the contrary. This reform remains what it’s always been – a set of fairer rules and tougher protections that have made health care in America more affordable, more attainable and more about you, the consumer, the American people. It’s working,” said Obama in praising the high court ruling.

“Today is a victory for hard-working Americans all across this country whose lives will continue to become more secure in a changing economy because of this law,” said the president.

As CNSNews.com reported, the justices ruled 6-3 that the subsidies that people receive to make insurance affordable do not depend on where they live. "Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them," Chief Justice Roberts wrote in the majority opinion.

“Because of this law, and because of today’s decision, millions of Americans who I hear from every single day will continue to receive the tax credits that have given about eight in 10 people who buy insurance on the new marketplaces the choice of a health care plan that costs less than $100 a month,” said Obama.

When will we finally take to the streets and push back? It will be to late when there is nothing left but an impoverished middle class and they march us off to the FEMA camps.

I went to a rally in Washington last year. Only about 2000 people showed up. Pathetic. The only way I'd go to Washington again is if patriotic citizens finally decide to invade the halls of congress, and have the will to drag those SOB'S out to be strung up under the nearest trees! That also includes that lying fraud passing himself off as a legitimate president. I'll bring the rope! If this actually happened, the owners of the left wing propaganda sheets, also known as newspapers, should also be hunted down and lynched.

Doug you said the truth.

Bobby that's where we're headed.

Yea if you don't work or an illegal alien or some other person that has little income but what about people who have a decent income that do not wish to buy insurance or the people who bought policies prior to this commie overthrow their insurance almost doubled and the deductible went through the roof. Why should we have to pay for other peoples policies,he is always squawking about fairness,just how the hell is that fair for the rest of us like the members of congress,they shove this crap down our throats without even reading this horrible mess then they decide its not for them.....how is any of this fair.... I wonder who he had to threaten to get his way this time

Dam shame that people who have a nominal income and pay the lion's share of taxes are FORCED to pay for the deadbeats, and the illegals health care.

Today Obama and the Supreme Court pushed this great country into the EU model - we will fail as they all do.  We may never rebuild since the country is awash with victims and not real people.  We need strength and honor and love of country.  Not LBGT or Trans whatever - we need real men and women who care enough to go out of the box and out of the PC mode and be real.

Question is, when this debaucle "fails" will we be able to rebuild?

This comes right after "If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it, if you like your doctor you can keep him".  Oh yes, and "There are no death panels".

..."health care that costs $100 per month." What has Obama been smoking? I challenge Barack Obama to prove that statement is accurate and correct?! As usual, he's lying through his teeth. Obama has no honesty and no integrity. Meanwhile, the GOP in Washington sits with their thumbs up their rear ends looking stupid.

Obama is correct; the ACA is not about a takeover of healthcare. The ACA is about control of YOU the people. PERIOD.........

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
