Barbara Walters was doing the spin thing after the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) awful report on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as Obamacare. But then, ESPN’s NBA Countdown host, Sage Steele is right on point with her comment to Ms. Walters saying, “Maybe this is the proof why…this is not the way to do it.”
This health care law started out wrong as a bill that was over 1200 pages long and put up for a vote when no one had time to thoroughly read and research it. I am glad that no Republican in either of the houses of Congress voted for the ACA. That includes the Republican who have the RINO label. Surprisingly, they did not vote for the ACA. Congress during that time had strong to perfect Democratic majorities. The Democrats in both houses overwhelmingly voted for this health care bill without reading and researching it; therefore, the blame starts and ends with them.
Now we are reading about people losing their health care that they were suppose to be able continue with if they desired to do so. These same people are signing up for the ACA’s health care and finding out they cannot afford it. People are finding out that they have to get a separate plan for their babies in their families. There are even more horror stories not mentioned here.
The CBO says the ACA, again also known as Obamacare will have a devastating affect for times to come as stated in the graphic below from rightchange.com.
People on the liberal left side are jubilant over Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke controversy. He called the single Ms. Fluke a slut and a prostitute for speaking in favor of health care insurers providing free contraceptives before an unofficial congressional committee. I am hearing and reading that he is toast! There are people out there partying over the groundswell that Mr. Limbaugh is experiencing in the loss of at least 26 sponsors and 2 dropped stations as of this posting. He is talking replacement of departing sponsors.
I am not into personal attacks and name calling; therefore, I feel Mr. Limbaugh was “over the top” wrong with the misogynist name calling, but he did apologize. If anything should happen to him, it should be a suspension like the one liberal, leftist Ed Schultz took for calling conservative talker, Laura Ingraham a slut on his radio program (he also apologized for going too far on Ms. Ingraham).
This selective outrage over Rush Limbaugh is all political and it is working in the affirmative for the Democratic liberal lefties. Mr. Limbaugh fell into their trap and they are positively spinning this controversy and gaining support which will lead to votes for a 2nd term for the Obama administration. I say selective, because where was this groundswell of outrage over Ed Schultz, Keith Olbermann for calling Michelle Malkin a mashed up bag of meat with lipstick and Bill Maher for calling Sarah Palin a cu#t and Michele Bachmann a tw%t among other names. Have you ever heard any apologies from Mr. Olbermann and Mr. Maher on their misogynist name calling? Read about leftist misogynist name callers from someone on their side here.
I conclude with one final thing on Sandra Fluke. She said on the TV program, The View that the contraceptive coverage that she desires does not take taxpayer money. This is true, but Ms Fluke a law student is looking for health care insurers to provide free contraceptive coverage for college students. Well, that means higher cost for insurers which then gets passed on higher coverage costs and cuts for you.

It is kind of interesting that the Congressional Democrats seeking re-election are not touting the new Health Care law i.e Obamacare as an accomplishment while out on the campaign trail. The little mention that the law gets is from the few Democrats who did not vote for it and the new Democratic candidates seeking first time election to Congress saying they would have never voted for the Health Care law.
