Will House Obamacare Fix Stop President’s Nightmare Impact on Millions of Americans?

Written by Kevin Fobbs on November 15, 2013

The immeasurable impact of Obamacare upon the lives of 5.5 million American families and climbing may be coming to a temporary end. On Friday the House of Representatives sent the president a message by ignoring his half-baked scheme and approving its own Obamacare insurance fix. But on Friday the White House signaled that the president would veto the bill.


This president must be either totally tone deaf when it comes to not hearing or seemingly caring about the millions of the nation’s families being stripped of health insurance coverage. His responses have either been tepid or devoid of any human caring as he keeps attempting to strangle the truth of his culpability in destroying one sixth of the American economy.

Take a close examination of what exactly the House passed and determine for yourself whether Obama has two socialist legs to stand on in defying their bill. Congressman Fred Upton (R-MI) led the charge to help remedy the frightening debacle that Obamacare was causing in nearly every corner of the nation. Upton and his fellow Republicans were joined by 39 Democrats to slow the path of devastation of the individual insurance marketplace.

The prospective law, according to Fox News would allow insurance companies to reinstate canceled health insurance policies that fell victim to Obama’s ill-fated Affordable Care Act. The House bill would also allow new customer to purchase policies for an additional year that Obamacare had forced insurance companies to terminate.

Obama had come out in mid-week issuing a seemingly forced almost-apology in order to give Democrats on Capitol Hill political cover ahead of next year’s 2014 mid-term elections. With the mounting millions of angry voters pointing their fingers directly at the congressional Democrat culprits that voted for the bill, Obama was attempting a half-hearted political Republican tidal wave that could very well sweep out Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his gavel along with possible 10 to 12 Democrat senators.

So, in reality it was the president playing politics as usual while he was watching his version of Rome burning in the heartland in terms of healthcare coverage of citizens.

Obama’s version was a temporary fix which translates into we are going back to the insurance blood bath and termination carnage right after the mid-term elections. His goal in the White House fix-it plan was to arm the insurance companies with the tools to tinker around the edges of his failed Obamacare by offering some canceled policies a temporary resurrection.

According to Forbes, this resurrection from the dead insurance fix-it would only be possible if the insurance companies told the consumers that the “Protections offered under Obamacare,” would be absent in those un-dead insurance plans. Now before you get ahead of yourself, those new-old plans can be canceled after a year by the administration by the Socialist-in-Chief. And Americans know how good Obama’s word is on “If you like your insurance plan you can keep your insurance plan … period!”

So the battle begins between the president and the House and soon the U.S. Senate over whether a half-political fix is a real repair of the untold damage wrought upon the American households. Do you even trust a plan political plan from congress or the president that does not restore the vibrancy and integrity of the healthcare system?

The battleground for the future of the American family and its ability to determine its own pathway for freedom in its health care will not be fought within the halls of congress. In each home that has a canceled insurance policy lying on its kitchen table, and in each workplace that has a worker that is losing hours or their job, is where Obamacare’s future will be decided.

2014 is but a few scant months away and with it the freedom of all Americans who believe in liberty and justice will be lost or won. That is the only solution.
