Friday marks two years since President Obama signed the health-care laws that are now commonly referred to as Obamacare. Interestingly, Obama and his allies are making almost no mention of it and Republicans are making every effort to make mention of it.
Rep. John Fleming (R-La.), is a longtime physician. He says there's no mystery as to why the administration is downplaying the president's most significant domestic accomplishment. He contends every fear voiced by the Republicans in 2009 and 2010 has been proven true – from cost to loss of choice to concerns over rationing.
"Everything we Republicans were saying during the debate during 2009 and 2010 ... have been unfolding before our very eyes, and actually even more things than we expected," Fleming told WND.
Fleming also explains why House Republicans passed a bill to repeal a portion of Obamacare that would allow presidential appointees to make critical life-and-death decisions for Medicare patients in order to control costs. The congressman explains why this panel could not only refuse to cover certain procedures but eventually rule out treatment for specific people. He also offers the GOP strategy for bringing down the skyrocketing cost of health care.
