Obama is no leader and is destroying the Democratic Party

    Leaders bring people together.  Obama is dividing his own party.

    When people look back at Obama's one term presidency they are going to wonder how one person could do so much damage to the Democratic Party.

    His recent charade with Health Care will seal his doom and badly damage the party.

    Americans want Health Care Coverage, I want health care coverage.  But Obamacare is NOT the answer.

    He's doing nothing now but playing the bully and its reflecting very poorly on the Democratic Party.  He is the Republicans biggest hope in this coming election year.

    Nothing in his recent proposal has changed these poorly written health care bills.

    Example:  A different, one-time deal negotiated by Sen. Mary Landrieu for her state, Louisiana, worth as much as $300 million stayed in.

    Why should other states pay for Louisiana?

    Another example.  If you are declared disabled in the United States... you can not apply for Medicare for 2 years.  So you go 2 years with no insurance.  This is the current law and there is NOTHING in either Senate or House bills that addresses this!

    Forcing people to buy health insurance is NOT going to fix health care.  Government mandates are just taxes on the people.

    Tax Credits are not money.  You only get the tax credit AFTER you do your yearly taxes.  So who is going to come up with all the money to pay the premiums for the poor until then?

    Goodbye Mr. One Term President.

    "Government mandates are just taxes on the people."

    Absolutely correct! This is how he gets around that campaign promise of only taxing those making 250,000 or more. But you can bet the usual suspects will show up here and deny that and blame the minority party of stonewalling, typical Democrat ploy, say it enough and people will believe it!

    "Hope and Change" is "Bait and Switch"

    I am a little confused by this? In August 2004 my husband was declared medically disabled and by Jan. Of 2005 He was receiving full SSI from medicare. Has something changed since then?
