Obamacare made a mess of health care

Published: December 29, 2013

What a mess Obama's so-called Affordable Care Act is making of our health care protection system! Obamacare should be called Democare since not a single Republican in Congress voted for this “historic” and terrible law. Another reason to call it Democare is because it's demolishing the finest health care system in the world.

It's ironic that U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was right and actually tried to help Obama by pushing for a one-year delay in its implementation. The Democrats call anyone who tried to repeal, change or improve their “prized” legislation all sorts of bad names. Why has Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius not been replaced? Isn't she responsible for the details of the ACA operations? And how about the Supreme Court's split decision to uphold this legislation as constitutional? The court was the last line of defense for the people of this great country and the justices actually had to change the bill's terminology of the penalty clause, to a tax, to make the bill acceptable.

The only question that remains is this: Will voters hold all Democrats accountable come election time?
