Obamacare remains overwhelmingly unpopular with the American people.  Now the Supreme Court is on the brink of making it illegal as well…

The consistent unpopularity of Barack Obama’s healthcare law is a fact the Mainstream Media has purposely ignored for the last two years.  During the 2010 Midterm Election, scores of Democrats were swept from office for having supported Obamacare, and the Democratic Party itself lost control of the House.  Subsequent reports then came out showing the true cost of Obamacare to be far greater than the administration promised.  Was Barack Obama lying or simply incompetent?

Add to this more recent reports suggesting that Obamacare is actually widening the gap between rich and poor in America – in essence, further suffocating the Middle Class, as was outlined in this Forbes report:

Income inequality appears to be growing in the United States.  And while President Obama didn’t initiate the trend, his health care legislation will dramatically exacerbate it.


…ObamaCare Makes Income Inequality Worse

Because ObamaCare forces people to get comprehensive, and therefore expensive, health coverage, it actually makes the income inequality problem worse. Lower- and middle-income workers will see a much larger percentage of their income — which includes the employer’s contribution since that is part of total compensation — going to health insurance than higher-income workers.

Unless, of course, employers decide to drop their coverage and dump their employees into the heath insurance exchanges, as many surveyed employers have hinted.

And while the president thinks that comprehensive coverage helps workers, it actually hurts them because it represents a bigger portion of their income that someone else controls, and it means a loss of income as a greater percentage goes to health coverage.

It’s an irony that we’ve seen frequently from this administration: decrying certain economic trends while unwittingly enacting policies that make the situation worse. One day, perhaps soon, we may have an administration that actually understands economics.

    Great analysis from Forbes, but don’t you think they’re being a little too polite (politically correct) by making it a “question” of whether Obama is lying or incompetent, whether he’s deliberately or “unwittingly” making the problem worse?

    I’m hopeful obamacare will be struck down, but after the disappointing ruling on AZ’s illegal immigrant law, I am also preparing for the worst.

    It’s the duality of Obama’s words not matching his actions. He says one thing and does another…To my knowledge, we don;t have the proof available [yet] making the treasonous charge stick. So we are forced to go the ‘incompetence’ route as it is publicly palatable and serves the same purpose in the end game.

    Yes, I’m totally with you on the HC decision. Obama made an unforced error after the SCOTUS announced it’s decision on AZ. When an anonymous WH official said BO would be with-holding help from the ICE agency assisting Border Agents dealing with illegals caught crossing the border from Mexico. I hope Roberts doesn’t fold and in fact, strengthens his decision if he feared angering the POTUS. Now that BO’s arrogance and disrespect of the Justice Branch is in full view arbitrarily making a lateral move to do as he pleases in spite of the Supreme Court’s decision. If Roberts doesn’t take a STAND NOW… He will be solely responsible for a Constitutional Crisis caused by his inaction keeping the Executive Branch of our government in line and within the scope of it’s prescribed duties.

    Yes it’s outrageous the WH is withholding support for immigration checks. I guess it all depends on whether Roberts is a globalist or constitutionalist… The expansion of exec powers beyond its constitutional limits is a globalist/fascist goal.
