Obama to mark six-months of health care reform

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama is set to take a victory lap Wednesday on what is arguably the signature legislative accomplishment of his first two years in office: the enactment of comprehensive health care reform.

The president will travel to the home of an individual with a chronic ailment who, according senior administration officials, is benefiting from the new law's repeal of lifetime coverage limits.

Other men and women helped by various provisions in the new law will also be in attendance, the officials said.

    The White House is prepared to work with insurance companies on further implementation of the reforms, the officials said, but won't let them "use the law as an excuse to jack up rates."
    Oh really? Blah blah blah blah... They have no way to stop this. Rates have already gone up because of ObamaCare and they will go up much higher much faster. This is the major flaw with ObamaCare. They just can't say," We won't let this happen." It already has.

    How is Obama going to spin a government takeover of 1/6 of our economy against the will of the people? ObamaCare will increase costs, limit resources, and lower the quality of healthcare. So, thanks to Obama and the Democrats, we go from having the best medical care in the world, to being on par with Socialist Europe. Sorry, not buying your propaganda.

    Vote Republican on November 2nd.
