One television pundit compared Obamacare to a restaurant owner and his cooks preparing horrible food they won't eat themselves, but expect others to.

Although this law specifically states Congress must abide by this law (meaning no waivers), this president unlawfully granted himself, Congress and staff, the IRS and his friends waivers.

A president's job is to execute laws made by Congress, yet he unilaterally, consistently changes (19 Obamacare changes) and unlawfully rewrites laws to please himself and pals. This behavior is normal in Cuban and Russian dictatorships but appalling in a constitutional American government.

So Obamacare is an unpalatable, unlawful mess, served to you by Democrats. Thanks Obama, Rep. Pete Visclosky and Sen. Joe Donnelly for its effects:

  • Jobs lost.
  • Decreased work hours.
  • Employers dropping insurance.
  • 40 percent tax on benefits (2018)
  • Increased insurance costs with less coverage.
