  •  It was short, but very sweet!!! Our President (13+ / 0-)

    pretty much brought it to the Republican obstructionists. He simply told stories of three people who had written to him about Obamacare and how it had helped them to live better lives and, in two cases, live, at all. Then he said that he cannot understand why anyone would be against millions of Americans being insured and that the constant drumbeat to repeal is something he finds "troubling." He asked why Republicans would want to take healthcare away from those people who wrote to him about how the ACA had helped them and the other millions that it is helping. It was a simple question that all Americans can relate to, if they just open their ears.

    He also said to the media. The Website is going to break down again, I guarantee it, so you will put it on your front pages, but it won't be news! Brilliant.

    I feel like I just witnessed a seminal moment in US history. A moment where a Black man claimed his rightful ownership for a great thing that he did to improve his country. Wonderful!!

    He also thanked all of the volunteers and said that the WH didn't have billions to throw into promoting Obamacare like the billions that people put into trying to destroy it. He explained that volunteers did the work. He also thanked Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin and all of the Democratic congress.


    I urge everyone to try to see it on Youtube later, as it was truly a grand moment in history.
