Tyler (KETK) — In a weird, disjointed news conference Thursday, President Obama went on the offensive. He touted there are now 8 million people signed up for Obamacare.
Really? Are we sure those are not just former Medicaid folks signing up or still how many have paid?
What the president didn't say is the census numbers will now be tallied differently to prop up Obamacare. Also, how many Democrats are embracing Obamacare as we head toward the next election? Not Many.
In fact, Democratic gubernatorial candidate from Texas, Wendy Davis, would not have a huge photo-op with the president when he was recently in the state.
How many Democrats are marching in lock step?
The president also just kept saying "the health care debate is over..this is working...let it go." To me, that means he's selling hard because he has to. If the ACA was really working all he'd have to do is roll his eyes and say look at the numbers, the real numbers.
And speaking of selling Obamacare, he still is chiding the many governors who won't take the Medicaid dollars that go along with it. Many of my Democrat friends are furious Governor Perry wont take the money, but they seem to be misinformed that the Medicaid
Money, which by the way didn't fall out of a tree, our taxpayer money. That free federal money goes away a few years from now and then the state is on the hook for that.
Of course, you wont hear that from most of the media, but you have here.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
