Women comprise biggest
opposition to ObamaCare

New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/27/2013 5:05:01 AM

Remember Julia? That cute little cartoon the Obama folks created to illustrate how the president’s policies would provide “health and economic security” for women at all of life’s stages? The real-life Julias aren’t buying. A CNN/ORC International poll out this week finds 60 percent of women opposing ObamaCare. This follows a Kaiser Health Tracking Poll that found half of American women holding an unfavorable view of the law — against only 32 percent in support. In fact, almost all of the increase in the overall unpopularity of ObamaCare can be attributed to the growing number of women rebelling against it. No doubt this

Where are the men? Oh, that´s right, it´s usually married women who worry about men´s health because men never take their own health seriously and women know BarryCare sucks as far as keeping their men alive not to mention the high cost which would bankrupt the whole family just to keep the parasites going.

"The incredible thing here is not that American women are turning against President Obama because of his horrible health-care law. It’s that the White House was condescending enough to think women wouldn’t figure it out."

More proof that the real obama is a dim-wit, probably more so than the LoFo´s who have bought into his scams.

Women need doctors more themselves, they are the ones who usually take charge of children´s healthcare, and they nag their husbands. In addition, women are also often the caregivers for aging parents.

They will feel the ill effects of losing trusted doctors first; and, as they often take charge of bills and budgets, they´ll see the financial disaster, too.

But most of them will STILL vote Democrat in 2014. They´ll convince themselves that the law may be bad but that some other Democrat (Hillary!) can fix it better than some Republican can. It´s hard for some women to leave an abusive relationship. And they don´t get more abusive than shacking up with Democrats.

obamaCare is spilling over. I have Horizon Blue Cross/Blue Shield. An orthopedic surgeon gave me a prescription for an MRI a few weeks ago. (pretty tame stuff). Insurance denied coverage. BC/BS is bracing for impact, same as the rest of the industry.

Obama War Room: Man Up

OBAMA: That´s impossible. I´m polling below zero?
WHITE HOUSE POLLSTER: I´ve never seen anything like it, sir. The "negative numbers" poll hypothesis was discarded a generation ago. The only explanation is that even the imaginary voters we regularly survey to boost your ratings are down on you.
OBAMA: Intolerable. I want my blocs back. Women--my women!-- have slip-slided away. HHS?
KATHLEEN SEBELIUS: We´re paying for abortions now, Mr. President. Regain women´s loyalty by paying them to have abortions, say $500 per protoplasmic blob. And think of the benefits to humanity of all the fetal stem cells we´d harvest.
OBAMA: Make it so. George?
SOROS: Giff generous bonus for twins und triplets, zir.
OBAMA: Excellent! fertility clinics will spring up all over the country to cash in, meaning an uptick in the next year´s jobs reports.
JOE BIDEN: Good, Boss, but not enough. How ´bout we offer every female of childbearin´ age--say 18 to 45--a government job?
OBAMA: Doing what?
BIDEN: Maybe 50 million women take us up on it. Half of ´em probably have kids. We hire them to mentor the other 25 million who´ll have their own kids down the road.
OBAMA: Why are we hiring the mentorees?
BIDEN: To be the government´s eyes and ears in the upbringing of the next generation of voters. Gotta plan ahead, Chief.
OBAMA: You´re a devil, Joe. Okay, now, what can we offer senior females to bring them back into the fold?
VALERIE JARRETT: Millions of women are trapped in long and unhappy marriages, Barack. Incentives to break the ties that bind would earn you their gratitude.
OBAMA: Eric?
HOLDER: I´ll issue new federal guidelines to divorce courts across the country: in brief, the female always gets the house, the car, the dog, and 100% of the assets. The guy gets bupkis.
MICHELLE: Don´t even think of telling Eric to write in an exemption for former presidents. You hear me, Barack?

I love women, but are you talking about the same ladies who gave serial rapist Bill Clinton a 55% majority vote in both of his campaigns and Obama the same majority in his two elections.

I´d like to believe it, but its seems to be the same type of sad story of the wife who suffers beatings from her husband and then always returns for more.

As a conservative woman, I saw through William Jefferson and his "bimbo eruptions". I also saw through "Hope and Change". But I also know that most women will probably vote for "Stand By Your Man" Hillary. Because who will the GOP nominate to go up against her? Odds are, another RINO.

"Women comprise biggest opposition to ObamaCare."

There may be quite a bit of truth to the story´s headline. As one small example, at 24 hour fitness where I work out, CNN has largely disappeared from the TV screens and has been replaced by Fox News. And its the women (and plenty of guys by the way) who are glued to the Fox News programs.

However, like I have been saying all along, wait until our young people (male and female alike) who are old enough to vote or otherwise), finish catching on to this debacle that has been brought to them and for which THEY will pay dearly for. Our young people operate differently once they discover they are getting the shaft. Perhaps they aleady envision casting the establishment aside and starting anew?

“The members of the Obama administration,” she told us, “have really been users and abusers of women, trading on their trust, plying them with false promises, offering them small benefits, while taking away the most important things: not only the plans they liked and counted on, but their personal relationships with the very doctors on whom so many rely.”

It´s long overdue that women finally woke up to this POTUS´ utter disregard for the lives of America´s women, men and children.

As one columnist said, Obamacare is the gift that keeps on giving; now women see what is really going on. Perhaps they will one day also realize that the Democrat Party they hold so dear, is out to screw them without kissing them.

One question to some of the women who now oppose ObamaCare: Why did you vote for this fraud to begin with? "Women left to clean up the mess" -- that they were a big part in creating to begin with (Obama won in large part because of the female vote). I guess that "free lunch" bamboozles women as much as it does men.

I guess all you leftist women have discovered that your "free" birth control, which you could have paid for yourselves at Walmart for $9 a month, is now costing you $400 a month in zippycare premiums.

How´s that War on Women thing working out for you? Maybe you should have listened to that evil misogynist Ted Cruz. Blame Sandra Fluke and Nasty Pelosi, two of your favorite feminist icons. Or you could put on your vagina costumes and march on the WH.

BTW, I´m a woman with a 23 year old daughter. Neither of us is fooled by the left.

Wrong, too many women second term voted for adulterer rapist Slick Willie. No, the new voter will be the irate young adult who does not like being taxed heavily for unneeded health costs.
Families who suffered unneeded misery and death because of fraudulent, illegal ObamaFraud, will be another new voter group. DUCK DYNASTY is the first religious based group to stand up for economic freedom and individualism So look out for a change in many of the socialist burdened churches across the nation.
Yes! Lots of new pro freedom groups forming throughout this great country. The greed crazed uidiots in Washington, and their commie propagandized media, can just push and shove the citizens of America, so far, then, LOOK OUT !

You were correct the first time, #4/5! There are many things that men wouldn´t do without the gentle encouragement of nagging.

I was self-employed for most of my life and I saved tens of thousands of dollars by going without health insurance because I could. I did some computer work for some of the big insurance companies so I had a good look at how the non-group subscribers get screwed. This is an option that O´Dumbo would take away from today´s young entrepreneurs if he could get his Ponzi scheme to work.

The majority of women voted for obama. That is a huge hit to their credibility in the eyes of those who saw through the tin god from the get-go.

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month. While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

During her brief but lucrative stint as president of Wal-Mart’s charitable foundation in 2012, Sylvia Matthews Burwell received at least $750,000 in bonuses from an organization that doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions but keeps a tight lid on its own compensation practices, records show. Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary.

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

The Real Meaning of Soviet

As soon as the photograph of Soviet propaganda posters in Jay Carney’s kitchen hit the Internet, right-wing pundits began to draw conclusions about White House Press Secretary’s ideology, morals, and political leanings. It was as if things that a man merely places on his walls and looks at day after day can be any indication of his life choices. If that were so, the meals in Carney’s kitchen would also probably match the menu of the place and time of the posters. His family would be living on a diet of beets, gruel, occasional rat, and thinly sliced boiled jackboots, which

The Saga of Bundy Ranch --Federal Power, Rule

BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012. Over the past 18 months, there have been at least seven public congressional hearings and three fact-finding reports on the terrorist attack. If not invisible, Mrs. Clinton is certainly portrayed as being only in the background during Benghazi, unaware of key events.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday.
