Obamacare

  • On Friday President Barack Obama vetoed a bill that would have killed the affordable care act and cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
  • The Bill marks the first time in over 60 votes that Republican lawmakers have landed a bill to kill the act on the president’s desk
  • Speaker Ryan stated that this was a landmark bill because, even though Obama vetoed it, a Republican president won’t. 

Washington (CNN) President Barack Obama on Friday vetoed legislation that would have repealed the Affordable Care Act and cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

The bill goes back to the Republican-led Congress, which does not have the votes to override the veto.

Obama’s veto was expected, but it marks the first time Republicans have been able to get a bill that would repeal his signature health care law to the White House, after more than 60 votes to roll back all or part of the law.

In his veto message, Obama stressed the number of times congressional Republicans have tried to “repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act.”

“Rather than re-fighting old political battles by once again voting to repeal basic protections that provide security for the middle class, members of Congress should be working together to grow the economy, strengthen middle-class families, and create new jobs,” Obama wrote.

“Because of the harm this bill would cause to the health and financial security of millions of Americans, it has earned my veto,” he added.

The measure would also have barred federal money for Planned Parenthood, something conservatives in Congress vowed to do after a series of videos released by an anti-abortion group last year triggered a controversy about the sale of fetal tissue. Planned Parenthood maintains the footage was edited and denied any improper activity.

House Speaker Paul Ryan pledged to hold an override vote.

“It’s no surprise that someone named Obama vetoed a bill repealing Obamacare,” Ryan said in a statement.

“But here’s the thing. The idea that Obamacare is the law of the land for good is a myth. This law will collapse under its own weight, or it will be repealed. Because all those rules and procedures Senate Democrats have used to block us from doing this? That’s all history,” he added. “We have now shown that there is a clear path to repealing Obamacare without 60 votes in the Senate. So, next year, if we’re sending this bill to a Republican president, it will get signed into law.”

    Its worse than a cancer! It is national suicide….

  • John Isaacs says:

    It is socialism, takes from those that have and gives to those that do not. Not necessarily from the rich only. It is a disadvantage to all because the cost goes up each year and the coverage goes down.

  • Sally says:

    Nothing told about this bill was true – it’s more costly, you can’t keep your same doctor, etc. Nancy Pelosi is the author of the bill – it’s done for all the wrong reasons.

  • Rick Womble says:

    It nationalizes our medical treatment options. Like anything the Federal Government (FG), controls,

  • C. Wegrich says:

    Poison in shots, giving out too much free health care and not paying for it, forcing people to get it or fineing them. Just a bad Socialist, Nazi, Commie actions that are wrong. If he doesn’t get his way, uses executive order and disregards constitution all the time.

  • Jim Cole says:

    it has cost the entire nation a lot of money that could have been avoided by simply expanded and reformed the medicaid program.

  • Mike Mullin says:

    Dr. are leaving the profession due to more costs to his office and his patents.
    Back to our normal system which worked just great.

    Mr. O is doing everything he can to undermine the American life.

  • andi breaker says:

    This health care costs more and does less. A free market approach with provision for the poor would be a much better choice. My working sons now pay more for their Obamacare than their home mortgates.

  • Steven Hyde says:

    It raises the costs of health care, decreases the quality, & has already started the exodus of the better doctors to other countries, thus lowering the quality further. Obama is the cancer in our country, he breaks the law daily, with his unconstitutional executive actions.

  • Carrero says:

    Because as Obamacare needed money to operate, citizens like us with Medicare lost billions of dollars that we contributed to build during the years we worked. Now services are denied because Medicare is going to bankrupt.

  • jBonnie says:

    Obamacare is a cancer to those who have to rely on reasonable fees or immediate medical attention. The monthly dues continue to rise for citizens who cannot afford it. It was a lie that if we want to keep our Doctor we can….FALSE!
    It has been a nightmare for families!

  • Betty says:

    socialized medicine is not good, I grew up in Canada, and the doctors left in droves, due to cuts in income. Also Obama Care is gutting medicare and social security, to fund obama care..

  • GRANT says:

    INSURCOS’ RAISED THEIR PRICES OVER 2 YRS AGO, AS DID HOSPITALS & FAST CARE VE

  • Cliff says:

    All you have to do is TRY and read the monstrosity and anyone can see HOW it is screwing the American people out of yet MORE of their hard earned money and passing it on to the “takers” . “income redistribution” just as promised.

  • WhiteFalcon says:

    Ovomit is the root of most of our greatest problems today. What a turnaround it would if we got someone like Donald Trump in the White House when we finally get rid of this bozo.

  • Frank J Torchia says:

    Each year ACA takes away our freedoms and the costs will be unfordable and the restrictions unmanageable.
    Too much power is given to the government. The main purpose of government is to provide conditions that let’s it’s citizens fulfill the purpose of life and that is to prosper and live happily.

  • rosemary gaskell says:

    Why, when I choose “disagree’ does it become impossible to register on your web site. I tried again, after choosing agree, and submitting a comment was a snap

    Of course I chose agree to gain access to your site, but in fact I disagree and this is why:

    I don’t understand how anyone could condemn a health care program that benefits people who could not other wise afford health care. Don’t you guys understand when people without health care go to the emergency room the cost of that is paid by everyone. The hospitals do not absorb the cost of unpaid care, the tax payer does. Primary care physicians cost a quarter of emergency care. There fore ACA makes sense for the people, and sense for the country. But you are so tie to a principle, and blinded by a political platform, that works against your own self interest that it’s almost comic

    Everyone without health care spread germs to the rest of us. I don’t blame them, I sympathise with them They can’t afford to take the time off, if they did they would lose money they need for their families/or their employer would probably sack them

    If any ACA deniers are also church going Christians then go to the bible and read the sermon on the mount and then examine your behaviour to your fellow man. I hope Jesus has sympathy for you because I do not.

    I wonder how long this comment will be allowed to last on your site? My guess is not long.

    • Mimi23 says:

      Rosemary, you need to understand that when the people who couldn’t afford it before and now they get the healthcare, someone is paying for it and it is all of us again. Plus, the healthcare of the ones who had it before, well now they lost theirs and can’t afford the new rates that were raised. Even insurance companies are leaving the program because they say they are not making enough money. It is all greed on the part of insurance companies and the idiot who is trying to run this country and doesn’t know how. More people who had insurance coverage lost their coverage when Obamacare came in effect than the ones who couldn’t afford it and are now insured. I know some people who were ecstatic about it because now that they are on ACA, they pay $100/month. I agree that insurance should not refused to take people who had health problems before or raise their rates for them and that could have become a law but now force people to take insurance that they don’t want or need. You need to see both sides. We already have programs for poor people and they get great insurance from the Government, better sometimes than what hard-working citizens get from their work. It should be improved instead of having that plan and the ACA. They should raise their maximum earnings so more people could be on it for example, instead of people who make $15K a year which is ridiculous. Democrats only see their way and refuse to study all the different ways that things could be done and improved. They are blind to anything else out there.

  • James andrews says:

    He acts like he’s a dictator, for starters. Second; he’s one of the two or three worst American presidents of all time, so far.

  • George Bennett says:

    Well I’m sure, I’m not the only person with positive notes on ObomaCare. Well where to start, last year 2015 the hospital called for follow up MRI for a back surgery my out of pocket cost $50 my girlfriend had the same procedure $ 700 through her insurance . Where I’m going with is that they found another while reading he results from the MRI and found Cancer in my right kidney my deductible was another $50 for hospital stay. So my total charges for a Kidney removal was whopping $100. God knows what she would have paid out of her pocket. So I’ve got no complaints. Also this year my new plan, $1 for each prescription and $5 for Doctors Visit and $10 for Specialist . My Mother has Medicade and Goes brought monthly just in Co Pays and all of the prescriptions she fills monthly, and she only has an income of of about $1300 a month lives by here self, pays rent etc. All because she makes a few dollars over poverty. She can’t get ObomaCare!!! Why Not?

  • William Reiner says:

    Healthcare should never be forced on the public.

  • marshall gravatt says:

    yes he is a cancer on this nation

  • George Thurston says:

    Had great insurance B4 Obama. Now I have crap for insurance. Can’t afford descent insurance and had to go with a co-op. Was told they paid 70/30% but they lied. On a recent trip to the hospital they only paid 10% and I had to come up with the estimated cost up front $4000.00. Now I have another procedure that needs to be done and it will be at least 4 times higher than this one. My problem is with my heart and there is no way for me to even begin to come up with the money. I work my butt off to make a living so I get no help with the high cost of insurance but at least my taxes help people sit on their asses and have free insurance. Thanks Obama from the walking dead.

  • David Molinari says:

    This gigantic white elephant not only created a huge power grab and money grab by destroying the ability for insurance companies to compete it also destroyed the quality that hospitals could provide and your right to buy or not buy a policy!

  • Ted habza says:

    My doctor has retired because of reg. My annual physical is now replaced by wellnes which is a limited exam. Difficult to get doctor appointments. My drug costs have gone up. Copays have gone up. etc etc

  • James Barry says:

    If it were so great why did no republican vote for it
    It is a train wreck that needs to be put out of its misery

  • john says:

    the cost have not gone down one bit, it appears it is in favor for the medical establishment not for the deserving patients, p.s. the medicaid have benefited from the Obama care system.

  • Jarhead says:

    Defund the ACA & the VA Health Care System….both too corrupt to make workable. (I have been in the VA System for over 65 years…..it has not improved….Policies like DEATH BY DELAY must be stopped & criminal charges made against the guilty).
    Self Insured is better, faster service, cheaper, better quality work, plus service where & when needed.
    The Poor have NEVER needed a Health Insurance Policy. (I am an ex-Hospital Board member of a Major Hospital),
    The harbinger of ACA is the VA…..and the VA is a total, complete failure and must be shut down ASAP.

  • Rick Childers says:

    it like not having ins at all every year it double in cost and less covered I know because I am on it

  • Jim says:

    Very Agressive , but KILLABLE !

  • M ary says:

    Because it keeps employers from hiring & they force you to have it, but then you cannot afford to use it. It’s too costly & does nothing to bring down costs! If it were so great, congress & the president should not be exempt from it!

  • Joseph Dominguez says:

    He seems to be doing everything he can to destroy all things American.

  • SJC says:

    I agree because it is putting Doctors out of business. I know because my husband’s Dr. had to close the doors. He said he wasn’t seeing half the patients he used to because of all the additional paperwork caused by Obamacare. He also said that because of certain stiplations a person could only see certain Dr. most lost their own dr.’s plus their premiums were so high they could not afford them.

  • Rebecca Jackson says:

    In his earliest speeches it sounded like he came here to destroy America and he’s done a relly good job of it. He said he went to college on a Fullbright scholarship and those are never given to US citizens. Another lie?

  • Wanda says:

    Hell, let’s don’t give cancer a bad name now.

  • Tom Heinz says:

    The ACA is just like the resident, packed full of lies and deception, smoke and mirrors—we have 376 days then the asshole will be gone

  • Marilyn Riley says:

    He is a liar, “health care for all for the price of a cell phone” really? I can’t get health care for 50.00 a month. No one can be denied health care even with pre existing conditions? Another lie. I got cancer and no one will touch it because it was a condition pre existing the insurance I had to buy or pay the penalty. O’Bummer is the anti Christ. I am sick of paying the price for what some lazy fat Pilgrim did 376 years ago. Diversity in the work place is ignorant. The job show go to the most qualified person regardless of the skin color. NO wonder other countries are laughing at us. America is over loaded with “STUPID” Only Trump can clean this mess up. I hope he starts by selling off hundreds of thousands of acres of land to developers the government owns and does nothing with and pays china off and then cuts them off to bring jobs back to Americans. O’Bummer is an idiot he trades 5 key Islamic terrorist for one trader that is going to prison for life anyway. That alone will cost Americans 3,750,000 to keep him in a protective place when he should be thrown in open population and get what he deserves. America is stupid it should be an eye for an eye Nation and the crime would end. Molest a child and you will die, commit rape and you will die, murder someone and you will die. We need to stop rewarding and supporting the breeding of ignorance.

  • virg says:

    The people need some sort of medical and single payer is the best but dumass RapeUglycans want to ruin everything. More scummy insurance compasnies

    • Ron says:

      If you believe that a single payer healthcare system is the way to go, you do not realize that a single payer system is run by the government and is a socialist system. Only a free market system will work. We have to have every insurance company operating nation wide to bring the price back down to a reasonable level.
      Check history and you will find that every country that has a socialized health system equals high costs and a better chance of dying early in life and long wait times for care. This country is about freedom not a country that dictates how the people must live.

    obama care is destroying the health care in America I believe it will really bankrupt the system. As far as planned parenthood they should not be funded by the US government & with tax payers money.

  • Jarhead says:

    Health care costs are up……services are down…..corruption is rampant…..built on perjury…….the harbinger VA Health Care is a failure….

  • Algin Bradford says:

    This so called affordable Health Care was forced upon the American citizen with no real regard for the people. This is an intrusive federal measure that takes from most and gives to cronies, not needy individuals, that is growing into unheard of financial problems with little care being provided. It is slowly eating away at the very fabric of our way of life taking away that life and our freedoms with it.

  • Jerry Nettrouer says:

    Obomacare upset the balance of the free market system. It took healthcare away from far more than it gave healthcare to and at a cost 10 more expensive than the old system. It was more about federal control over the people than healthcare.
