Zeke Emanuel, the mastermind behind the disastrous Obamacare health insurance legislation (Affordable Care Act) appeared as a guest on FOX News Sunday. The host, Chris Wallace, asked Emanuel bluntly if President Obama lied when he told millions of Americans they could keep their doctor.
CHRIS WALLACE: “President Obama famously promised, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Doesn’t that turn out to be just as false, just as misleading, as his promise about if you like your plan, you can keep your plan? Isn’t it a fact, sir, that a number, most, in fact, of the Obamacare health plans that are being offered on the exchanges exclude a number of doctors and hospitals to lower costs?”
Zeke Emanuel: “The president never said you were going to have unlimited choice of any doctor in the country you want to go to.”
Media mogul Russell Simmons says President Obama’s troubled health care law has already saved thousands, if not millions, of lives. Simmons made his ludicrous claims in an op-ed post on his website, Global Grind.
“Yes, we initially wanted single payer, and we had to compromise back in 2009 for the Affordable Care Act,” Simmons wrote. “But, [Obamacare] is a damn good piece of legislation that has already saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. So, let us not give up now.”
Simmons did not provide any statistics or evidence to back up his claims.
President Obama’s rapacious attempt to lead this country into socialism is failing spectacularly.
When Obama’s comprehensive Affordable Care Act insurance law went into effect on October 1st, millions of Californians surfed the exchange website in search of the low rates that Obama promised.
“We had over 5.7 million hits to our website as of 3 p.m. yesterday,’ Covered California spokeswoman Kelsey Caldwell told MailOnline Wednesday.
Of those 5 million visitors, only 4,143 applications are pending, she said. That’s less than one percent.
Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel tests the public’s knowledge of the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare.
“They’re the same thing,” noted Kimmel during his opening monologue on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night. “Lo and behold, we found people who did not know that,” he said as the audience chuckled.

The Senate voted today to reject the House GOP’s amendment to defer ObamaCare for one year. The provision was killed by an all-Democratic vote earlier today. The House GOP’s amendments also included a Conscience Clause, or an opt-out for contraceptive coverage.
The ball is back in the House GOP’s court. Unless there is a last minute change of heart by the House GOP leaders, the government will shut down at midnight tonight.
House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) stands by his decision not to accept a spending bill that does not include provisions to delay or defund ObamaCare for at least one year.
President Barack Obama said he was not resigned to a shutdown and plans to continue talking to congressional leaders.
The government is on the verge of shutting down for the first time in 17 years. The reason behind the shutdown is simple: Republicans are intent on delaying the implementation of ObamaScare for one year.
If the Republicans don’t get their way the midnight deadline for a budget agreement to keep the government running will pass.
The Senate and the House (which makes up Congress) are divided along party lines. Republicans control the House, and Democrats are the majority in the Senate.
Last week, the Senate killed language in the spending bill that would scrap funding for ObamaCare. The bill was sent back to the House to start over, but the House refuses to budge on the healthcare law.
Congress is at a stalemate. Even if the Senate voted to defund ObamaCare, the White House promised to veto the measure.
If Congress can’t reach a decision on the spending bill by midnight on October 1st, the government will effectively shut down.
But what does a gov’t shutdown mean for you?
