One thing I like to do is to go to conservative sites and read their diatribe. The latest site I “Liked” on Facebook is the Heritage Foundation. Emblazoned on their page is this logo:
They, like every other conservative are demanding the Congress to repeal this socialist medical care! Funny thing, this idea sounds like: Hertiage Care. As a matter of fact, the Obama Care was based upon the Heritage Foundation’s health plan as an answer to Hillary Care (Public Option) and placed in their bill, an individual mandate.
So why would the Heritage Foundation want to repeal the Affordable Care Act? To be blunt? Because Obama is black. Yes, I said it. Obama is a black and the leader of the Democratic Party. But, according to a lawyer who was on the Sirius Left show Mark Thompson: Make It Plain, the caller said that institutionalized racism does not exist.
If that were true, then why were there Republicans supporting this in the past? According to Fox News:
Individual health care insurance mandate has roots two decades long
The controversial individual mandate that was upheld Thursday by the U.S. Supreme Court stems back more than 20 years, believed to have originated with a prominent conservative think tank.
The mandate, requiring every American to purchase health insurance, appeared in a 1989 published proposal by Stuart M. Butler of the conservative Heritage Foundation called “Assuring Affordable Health Care for All Americans,” which included a provision to “mandate all households to obtain adequate insurance.”
The Heritage Foundation “substantially revised” its proposal four years later, according to a 1994 analysis by the Congressional Budget Office. But the idea of an individual health insurance mandate later appeared in two bills introduced by Republican lawmakers in 1993, according to the non-partisan research group ProCon.org. Among the supporters of the bills were senators Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who today oppose the mandate under current law.
In 1993, the President Bill Clinton, a white Democrat out of Arkansas was introduced with this bill. Hatch and Grassley stood behind the bill and made it their own. Yet when Obama introduced this bill, yes even with an individual mandate, both Republicans and the Heritage foundation balked. Why? Do they prefer a single payer plan? No. Was it because a Democrat is in in office? No. Bill Clinton was one. Has it something to do with race? To quote Bugs Bunny, “Hmmm, it might be”.
Yes, the ACA may not be perfect, as it was drafted by a conservative group, but why isn’t the Heritage Foundation stepping up to the plate and say: We created Obama Care and we are proud and that Obama, “stole our idea”. Well, maybe because there is a black person in the WHITE House and and as Mitch McConnell said: Make Obama a One Term President: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-A09a_gHJc
So suffice to say, racism is playing a part in Obama’s career in office.
