Failure of ACA is victory for tyranny

By From page A9 | February 07, 2014

The most recent report from the Congressional Budget Office on the Affordable Care Act states that the program will cause a cutback in workers’ hours or workers will leave the nation’s workforce entirely due to President Obama’s health care overhaul. The theory is that those low-income workers would opt to reduce hours or retire in order to get “Obamacare” subsidies or Medicaid.

It is reported as another flaw in the Affordable Care Act. Republicans point it out as another failure, which it is.

The White House looks at it as the freedom of workers to retire early, work less and have more time with their families. What no one seems want to talk about is the reason the left sees this as a freedom rather than a failure is that this is exactly what they want. This is one more step in transforming our nation into one with more people dependent on government. Stay home, on Medicaid or subsidized insurance, food stamps and welfare and vote Democrat.

It is time we recognize Obama for what he is – a socialist ideologue whose agenda includes nothing for the good of the country. What is truly another failure of Obama for the country is another victory for tyranny.

    Spending time with the family is absolute socialist tyranny. How dare our government espouse such a concept?

    The biggest difference between us that actually acknowledge the realty that's hitting our freedom and pocketbook compared to the partisan hacks, that will end up paying the same, is that politics for them, is a religion where they are willing to become martyrs without delusionally admitting the realty of what these disastorous policies are costing them. Their religion only allows them to attack the otherside, see Kirchy's columns as examples.

    Another Fox viewer who has no idea what the CBO report actually says. Maybe they just don't want to know, maybe they cannot understand. Either way, Fox fills the void with lies, which they endlessly and proudly parrot.

    Rather than dwell on a particular news outlet that you abhor...and excessively dwell on it Koirchubel does..perhaps listen,to Doctors,Business Owners,Insurance Company Executives,and the 6 million plus people who have lost their coverage,Perhaps listen to the people who have actually experienced the mind numbing premium increases,and loss of their Medical providers..If you're a complete fanatic like Kirchubel then perhaps listen to your own Democratic Party leaders who are running from not ON obamacare in increasing numbers..Perhaps just listen to obama himself..A lie is a lie anmd since Politifact.Org awarded obama the " Lie of the Year Award" in 2013 anyone at least honest with themselves would could conclude..yes the man's as liar..PS so is Kirchubel

    "What is truly another failure of Obama for the country is another victory for tyranny." So if Obama fails, tyranny wins? Well, if you don't want tyranny, better support President Obama. Unless you want the dictators to win... Well, do ya? Let me know if I'm reading this wrong.
