Obama’s audacious healthcare hypocrisy

With audacious hypocrisy, government provides physical therapy, wheelchairs and other medical services only by medical necessity while President Obama mandates unlimited birth control for women.

Oral contraceptives can be prescribed as a medical necessity for a variety of women’s health conditions, including excessive uterine bleeding. Additionally, surgical procedures like hysterectomies and uterine ablations, which also have the effect of preventing conception, can be medically necessary. I have no argument with government paying for their use under those conditions.

Pelosi and all Democrats who participated need to know the real definition of words. America deserves better. It’s time for Ken Buck and Cory Gardner to replace Democrats Michael Bennet, the Colorado rubber-stamping senator of President Obama’s agenda, and Betsy Markey, from Colorado’s 4th Congressional District who voted against her constituents to side with Obama.

Obama’s signature healthcare style

On Sun., March 21, at about midnight, President Obama declared, “This is what change looks like” in reference to his campaign promise of “change we can believe in.” Obama, Pelosi and Reid finally had squeezed enough Democrats to get the 219-212 vote to pass the Senate version of Obamacare in the House. In so doing, Obama showed his signature style – cut the people and the opposition out of the process as much as possible. Continue reading
