Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) says removing the federal government's individual mandate to purchase health insurance is “not American.”
McDermott told C-Span’s Washington Journal Tuesday, that Republican efforts to remove the government mandate to purchase health insurance from the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) will not work.
“They want to take out the individual mandate somehow – that we think we should have people just riding on the backs of other people in this country. I don’t think that’s – that’s not American,” McDermott said.
I find it amazing how this Government talks around the issue, and why the USSC Ruled Obamacare Constitutional, as a Tax.
Meet the true founder of Obamacare and TPP Legislation
this TPP Legislation does not belong to Obama,
TPP’s Founder & CEO to be given an OBE
January 5, 2015- http://www.tpp-uk.com/
The Cabinet Office announced today that TPP’s Founder & CEO, Frank Hester, has been named on the Queen’s New Year’s Honors List. The list, which recognizes the service and achievements of ordinary people across the UK, is announced every year just before New Year’s Eve. Early in 2015, Frank will be awarded with an OBE (Order of the British Empire), for his services to healthcare. Awards are usually presented by a member of the Royal Family at a formal ceremony.
America is about INDEPENDENCE. Government mandates are UN-American. Obamacare is a government mandated DIRECT TAX. It fails its Americanism test on TWO points. Plus I'm not sure the way it was 'passed' into 'law' was exactly Constitutional.
Government not supposed to mandate this kind of stuff.
It just goes to show that the left are totally out of ideas and keep using the same tired-out old mantras...do it their way or you are not an American. What's even more pathetic is that jerks like McDermott get re-elected by the idiots in their districts.
Dems like this are becoming irrelevant.
easy for him to say. he doesn't have a tax penalty and i bet he got to keep his doctor
What a blithering idiot!
Great words coming from the dirt bag
Excuse my language but: These PsOS in Congress have their own health care, and it's not the un affordable care act! That's the deal they made with the POS in our W.H. They passed it but, they are the only ones who got to keep their health care! All of them are BASTARDS!
McDermott? McDimwit more like it. LOL
These loyal Demo-Socialists are aiming at single-payer.
