    After almost four years, people are either satisfied or not satisfied with Obama. All this campaigning, and dinners has us with no president.

    All the hundreds of millions spent on vacations, golfing, and campaign trips are likely not taxed, and makes him a greedy millionaire needing to pay alittle more.

    From what I understand about the ultimate intentions of the liberal left, they eventually want a single payer system. Namely the single payer being the federal government. Obama and others on that side have alluded to it in the past. They see this system as only a step in that direction. Hopefully we will never be subjected to non competetive health care where mediocrity becomes the norm. That's what happens with the socialized single payer systems around the world. I lived in England for a couple of years and could see the difference in how health care operated. I prefer our system, warts and all.

    I think Obama deserves more of the credit in destroying health care in this country than anyone else in Government.

    Trying to compare the AHCA with Medicare is useless. Medicare is an insurance plan paid for by individual trust donations as payroll deductions and entitlement by age. Obama's so called tax cut law is what defunding Medicare, Medicaid, and SSA. The president made sure to defund SSA funding as a trust fund and endangering all free market health care.

    Romney had noting to do with Medicare or medicaid funding, that is all done by presidential proclamation and policy intervention. The only reason Medicare and all health care will rise is the government agency's trying to destroy our current trust funded health care services. Medicare and Medicaid and SSA "are not" an expense of our federal budget.

    These trust funds of working american citizens with an SSN are under attack because they don't belong to the federal budget. Congress borrows it from SSA then gives it to states to spend and that is where we are losing our health care, at the state level by Utah's misappropriation of entitlements to 300,000+ illegal foreign nationals.

    BO is misrepresenting Romney again. (he's lying)

    So what else is new?

    BO buys votes with social security funds (the payroll tax cut reduced revenue to SS) and he accuses Romeny of throwing seniors over the cliff? Really? BO is the one damaing the senior safety net.

    Yeah, this is what I keep hearing: "The Republicans don't have a plan regarding health care costs so we'll stick with the President's plan which increases health care costs" OR "We don't like the Republican plan so we'll speciously mock it and stick with the President's plan which increases health care costs." Pick one...
