Oh come on! As a Catholic, can I still support Obamacare? Comments

If you are a practicing Catholic, then Obamacare marks the end of your religion in the United States. Ever since arriving in office, Obama has been at odds with the Catholic Church. As many Catholics now know, Obamacare, as it is written, is unacceptable. Continue Reading

    Our country's problems with the best healthcare system in the world could have and should have been approached by the heads of various parties and institution involved; doctors, hospitals, insurance companies, attorneys, patient advocates and the like called together by the government and have them present solutions to be reviewed within a timeline of say six months. Instead we had the issue taken up by a group of politicians (elected officials who go to Washington to retire as millionaires through kickbacks for passing laws designed to benefit those who contribute most to their reelection) who didn't care what the "fix" was as long as they could be seen as the architects of a solution to the problems which could gain the votes of those they proclaimed as the suffering and discriminated under current guidelines. This with the added enticement that it was the wish of our first Black president and opposing it would be a clear sign you were racist homophobes wanting to deny healthcare to his favorite people, the poor and indigent of our country who continue to fall for the liberal progressives pitch within the democrat party plantation. It was doomed from the beginning when pie in the sky bureaucrats were left to design implementation based on their personal thoughts which precluded and ignored all professional concerns of those parties noted above. Thousands of pages of gobbledygook to call a comprehensive plan as long as the government in Washington could be assured of having complete control initially and throughout its existence were the overriding priority along with making sure that eventually we would have none of those nasty private insurance companies, unethical doctors, or filthy rich drug manufactures the bureaucrats told us were the plague of our healthcare system and all healthcare decisions normally made by patients and doctors and the insurance companies could be made by impartial government bureaucrats based on best economic value to the AHA otherwise known as the single payer system Obama has stated over and over that he wishes to impose on us. This kind of healthcare bureaucracy has resulted in patients from all over the world to come to America where healing care and preventative cures were the priority.
    In short¸ people here don't want to be treated like the Germans under Hitler were when he grabbed absolute power in the 1930's and establish his version of government controlled schools, business, and healthcare through his version of an Obamamania we see being constructed in America today.

    Obamacare proves that the government has the power to become the state,like it or not. Making anyone buy anything is totolatarianism,and to make anyone buy a product so corrupt is an abomination. obamacare is designed to destroy all religions especially because it totally dis respects all religious principal.
