BOSTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is expected to call for patience Wednesday in Boston where he will talk about the health insurance overhaul.

He's also likely to talk about the difficulties Massachusetts had when it launched its own insurance reform that is now popular.

In Washington, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is expected to be grilled about problems with the health care website.

This is for murfette88, who told me I didn't know what I was talking about and I was crazy..... 'One of every seven Americans will take a hit this Friday when a $5 billion cut in food stamps, the first across-the-board reduction in the history of the decades-old federal program, takes effect'. yeah murfette, I might be crazy, but I'm not stupid.

Oh and and since this 'theft by deception' health care plan started, over 800 'phony OBama sites' have popped up to steal identities.

Few facts: Yes Obamacare is nothing more than money in insurance companies pockets. First few years it will be great. Then after lobbyist convince politicians to put in new exceptions. It will slowly turn into you must have insurance, but expect no help when you do get sick as you fall into an exception allowed category. Example of what I am talking about is home insurance and how now you must have flood insurance or out west fire insurance elections. Car examples include the new subsections such as un insured motorists exceptions etc etc. Many middle class people just barely getting by have had their insurance cancelled and under the new Obamacare policies get less help and more headaches. Most are electing to pay the penalty now as it is such a hassle. As for the state of Fla they blocked funds to Obamacare. Keep that in mind when you vote locally. Most Republicans voted to deny subsidies in the state hoping you will blame Obama for that fiasco. That is they have told federal officials they will not take money to help expand Medicare and offer state subsidies to the people in the state dealing with a 348 dollar or more required expense every month. People should realize by now no matter which side you vote for they do not meet the needs of the citizens and do not listen to them at all. No matter which side we vote for lately both ruin it for all concerned.

We should add another Amendment to the Constitution. The right to remove somebody from OUR office under the 'No Confidence Vote'. Just as the British.

He is the direct cause of 80% of Floridians alone of getting their current Healthcare CANCELLED, after he stated we could KEEP our current Healthcare. He is FORCING us to get his OBAMACARE or we will be FINED. When are you idiots that voted for him going to wake up? This is a FREE Country, not Socialist Country.
