Time For Obama To Blink

It is time for President Obama and his Socialist pals in Congress to blink.  First, we can't continue borrowing 40 cents for every dollar we spend, adding to our $17 Trillion National Debt, with no end in sight.   It is time for the adults in Washington, who understand 5th grade math, to stop spending money we don't have.   We also must deal with the $100 Trillion or more in unfunded liability for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Disability Benefits, ObamaCare and state and federal pensions.   If all the wealth in the United States was confiscated, not just a percentage, it would be impossible to pay out every Entitlement that has been promised.  It is time to tell the American people the truth and deal with the problem.

Next, even if ObamaCare does remain in place, it should be delayed for a year or more to deal with all the unintended, stupid consequences.  The Middle Class, Young People, Private Sector Union Members and Senior Citizens are being screwed as a result of ObamaCare.  In order to deal with providing health insurance for the poor, who already qualified for Medicaid anyway, Obama and his Socialist brethren made a mess of things for everybody else, as premiums continue to rise and more people lose their jobs, or are put on part time.  ObamaCare, as written, is a job killer.   We can do better. 

Something as big as health care requires a national consensus, because it impacts one sixth of the US economy.  The fact that ObamaCare was enacted without one single Republican vote, representing 50% of the country's thinking, is just plain crazy.  It is time for all politicians to sit down and work out a compromise plan to deal with providing health care for the poor, without destroying health care for everybody else.   Well dah!!.
