Obama putting government in charge of people's lives

info@islandpacket.comNovember 8, 2013 

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was written by Democrats in Congress and President Obama's elite braintrust. It was passed with only Democrats' votes and signed into law in 2010.

The president said the ACA provides universal coverage and increased benefits. He promised that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. And if you like your current health insurance plan, you can keep your plan. Furthermore President Obama stated premiums would decrease by $2,500 for a family of four. Did President Obama tell the truth?

By decree, the president, a former constitutional law lecturer, changed the law many times. Some of his changes included sticking taxpayers with 72 percent of insurance premiums for Congress and their staffs, exempting big business from Obamacare taxes for one year, delaying almost $1 billion in cuts to Medicare and delaying the lifetime appointments to theIndependent Panel Advisory Board whose decisions cannot be challenged. America is a country of laws, not men, so why do you think it is OK for President Obama to unilaterally change the law? Is it possible Obama has become a dictator?

Why has the federal government shredded our privacy? Obamacare requires a dossier for every person with personal, financial and health information that is policed by the Internal Revenue Service. This is so Marxist.

Obama and his fellow Democrats have put the federal government in control of our health, and thus, have successfully implemented population control.
