President Barack Obama rode to the White House promising to reach out and find bipartisan solutions to the nation’s problems. He then signed a pair of controversial partisan laws, including Obamacare, which failed to receive a single Republican vote.
Today he is threatening to veto a bill that passed the House with 261 votes, including 39 Democrats and nearly all Republicans. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) is one proposed fix to force the president to keep his word, when he repeatedly promised Americans “If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare. Period.”
It’s now the word on Twitter that it takes an act of Congress to force Barack Obama to keep his word. But even that may not be true, as Obama says he will veto this bipartisan act of Congress.
