President Obama announces today that he supports a “fix” for Obamacare that would allow some Americans to keep the healthcare plans they already had for an additional year. That was already built into the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare law. It’s not an actual change to anything, it’s just an attempt to get out ahead of the bills that Republican Fred Upton and Democrat Mary Landrieu are sponsoring in the House and Senate that would legislatively “fix” Obamacare. It’s an exercise in blame-shifting, and an abdication of leadership.

As news of the plan leaked, skepticism spread.

Barack Obama’s credibility is now entirely gone. Having never had any Republicans on board with Obamacare, he cannot blame them. He cannot accept blame himself or blame Congress, as it was controlled entirely by Democrats when Obamacare passed. It’s not in his character to accept responsibility for anything he does that doesn’t turn out good. His only hope was to try shifting blame to the insurance companies, so that’s what he intends to do.

His new “fix” mocks his own recent statements on his own signature law.

The Gallstone Plan.

You have to pass it to find out what's in it.

It's going to be painful and it's not going to go away by itself.


How do you fix a lie? With a fraud.

It really is too bad that USA's first minority President turned out to be a gobblin turkey. Obama was sold as superior but Obama is grossly inferior. Does he not know that "the law of the land" can't be changed just because he says so? Apparently not. Obama goes out and reads whatever he's told to read. Obama is a true corpse-man.

Exactly. O can not survive without his teleprompter and 'other people's words'. I doubt O reads over whatever he is to say in advance.

One year, so next year they will lose their plans.
And next year the coverage-through employer will come up as a problem too.
This is no fix of anything.
This guy is relentless in his lust for chaos.
A true subversive.

A spot-on description of 1-20-09 to now.

The Gallstone Plan - excellent cfb.

1162 more days we must suffer this nincompoop President so any delay of his agenda is a good thing, IMHO. Delays get us closer to the day he exits.
