"If You Like Your Health Insurance......."

Well, THAT was poppycock, Barack.

...“The government estimates that, as a practical matter, a majority of group health plans will lose their grandfather status by 2013,” wrote the federal attorneys listed on the pleading. They are Stuart F. Delery, Barbara L. McQaude, Sheila M. Lieber, Michelle Bennett and Ethan P. Davis, who have various titles with the Department of Justice.

When Obama was promoting his plan, which has proved to be one of the largest tax increases ever, he said: “If you like your current insurance, you will keep your current insurance. No government takeover. Nobody’s changing what you’ve got if you’re happy with it.”

Statism has arrived.

Has anything actually changed for you personally in the last 4 years that could even be remotely blamed on the president? I mean besides being able to carry a gun onto federal park land?

The light bulbs, Spice. The light bulbs.

Spicey, I find it hard to believe that you've never read Donne:

"No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee."

Every single Statist/Socialist move he's made--and some are blatantly illegal, adjudicated as such--diminishes the US as a whole and me as a consequence.

The single best trick he relies on is the "nothing really happened to YOU" trick.

You ought to know better, Spicey.

More direct: in 3 months, more new taxes hit like a freight train; ObozoCare will begin to strangle the economy and medical care beginning in 3 months, and because I'm a Catholic, he's directly assaulted MY 1A right to freedom of religion.

Those are direct hits, all Obozo generated. We COULD talk about his penchant for illegal immigrants, which has devalued labor, which has an effect on anyone who works, too.

What, by giving you "free" condoms?
