Republicans manipulating truth on health care

To the people saying how dare our government force me to buy health insurance, I say how dare you expect me to pay with my tax dollars and insurance premiums when you go to the emergency room.

And to Republicans in the House of Representatives, how dare you continue to complain about the Affordable Care Act. For three years you've had a chance to improve it. Have you even read it? Have you come up with any ideas of your own? Of course not. All you've done is vote 40 times to defund it. 

Let us not forget it is patterned after the health care set up in Massachusetts by Gov. Mitt Romney.

The Republican Party lies and manipulates the truth. Talk about ending abortion and defunding Planned Parenthood. The Supreme Court acted on abortion years ago. Second, Planned Parenthood has never used federal tax dollars for abortion.

Republicans talk about a smaller government that stays out of people's lives, yet they want to decide where women can go for health care.
