I gave all of my heart, soul, and prayers for this man and his family for so long. I'm in shock, disgust, and heart broken to have been so fooled by this man. Never again will I trust a living soul.

I don't know who wrote this quote, but it is most befitting the way I now feel about our so called men of integrity!
"The most difficult choice a politician must ever make is whether to be a hypocrite or a liar."

"Lying is a sin destructive to society; for there is no trade where there is no trust, and there is no trust where there is no truth."

[FLASHBACK] Obama: "If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. Period! If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. Period!"

"If you like your plan, you can keep your plan." - Barack Obama

“What we said was, you could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law was passed,” he told supporters. - Obama

I'm sorry, Savannah. I said something like this was coming about five years ago (sorry, I can't find the post). He never deserved the level of devotion you paid him, no president does. They're all politicians in the end.

I really hope you're not going to get burned badly on the insurance changes.

I refused to vote for Obama because his record showed him clearly to be a Center/Right Corporatist, pretty much like most mainstream Dems in DC.

But I sure the fuck wasn't gonna vote for either of the Far Right Batshit 'bait and switch' tickets the GOP put forward.

As I said a few months ago:
"No-one who is not owned by The Corporate State is getting anywhere near the Oval Office for the foreseeable future. That will likely translate into a steady stream of Democrats because only Right Wing Radicals can make it through the GOP primaries and The Corporate State has learned The Hitler Lesson, that one cannot control a Political Radical once they grasp the levers of power."

The whole Shutdown/Default debacle showed that The Corporate State needed to relearn The Hitler Lesson in The House. The Tea Party is in for an ass raping next year because they fucked with their Pay Master's basic interests.

I remember how you warned me way back then. I kept refusing to accept some things after his 2nd election. But when he out and out lied, that's when I lost all trust and respect for him. PERIOD!

I'm keeping away from politics, since I have come to realize that they are all alike.

So far, I'm still okay with my insurance.

It seems a number of the private insurance carriers are not telling people about all the options available, especially the cheaper ones.

As for the rest, here's what Robert Reich said: "For those of us who have been arguing for years that the best way to provide comprehensive health insurance to Americans would be to graft it onto Social Security and Medicare, and pay for it through the payroll tax, Republican opposition to the Affordable Care Act has been deeply ironic. Republicans were the ones who initially demanded it be based instead on private insurance, and be paid for with a combination of subsidies for low-income purchasers and a requirement that the younger and healthier sign up. A Republican President (Richard Nixon) came close to enacting such a plan. A Republican think tank provided the details. A Republican governor (Mitt Romney) did a trial run (in Massachusetts). Yet now that the essential Republican plan for comprehensive health insurance is being implemented nationally, Republicans are apoplectic. Had Democrats stuck to the original Democratic vision and built it on Social Security and Medicare, it would have been cheaper, simpler, and more widely accepted by the public. Maybe, someday, we'll get there."
