Since the ruling by the United States Supreme Court on June 28, 2012, the big news in America has been how the Obama Administration, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid misrepresented the legislation to Congress, the Senate and the public.
It was consistently presented as a cost saving measure that would reduce the size of U.S. national deficits, thus helping pay down the debt, while improving the quality and lowering the costs of healthcare. Insurance premiums would be reduced. It would provide coverage for uninsured millions. If you liked the doctor and healthcare plan you had, you would be able to keep them.
Regrettably for American Citizens, with the exception of covering additional people, none of the rest was ever true. It will add to the deficit and to the debt. The quality and availability of healthcare will go down. Existing doctors will retire and fewer prospective doctors will enter medical practice since the rewards will be outstripped by the costs of a medical education. Insurance premiums have been will continue to rise, leading employers to drop coverage for employees, thereby adding to the likelihood that both your doctor and your plan will change.
It was never explained how a system cited as being too expensive was going to fund a new federal bureaucracy, start covering more people with the same number of facilities and personnel at a lower cost, while saving the nation trillions of dollars.
Now, we know: Obama, Pelosi, Reid and company all lied.
Especially Obama, who repeatedly pledged to Americans making less than $250,000 that their taxes would never go up. Not their income tax, not their payroll tax, not their capital gains tax. None of those taxes would go up, not by one single dime, ever.
But the truth is now revealed. See Obamacare: Seven New Taxes on Citizens Earning Less than $250,000
It doesn’t stop there. Attacks have been made on religious liberties. See Healthcare Mandate on Contraception in Rreligious Affiliated Institutions
There have been assaults on freedom of the press. See White House and Media Matters coordinate attacks on FOX News
Egregious though these examples may be, in the big picture they are only the tip of the iceberg:

•Obama has violated American bankruptcy laws by willfully denying secured bond holders first payment, in favor of unsecured political supporters.
•Obama has violated the Constitution by accepting the position of Chairmanship of the UN Security Council.

By 2020, this tax will extract an estimated $160 billion from the economy, or an average $1,870 per family.

•Obama has repeatedly slandered American Citizens with false accusations of racism, violent tendencies and hatred.
•Obama has grossly accelerated the amount of America’s debt through passage of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, which had negligible effect on unemployment, sent billions of dollars overseas and wasted billions domestically by lining the pockets of political cronies while bailing out States guilty of practicing irresponsible budgetary policies.
•Obama has put America and America’s allies at greater risk through cancellation of missile defense systems.
•Obama has expanded the need for enormous increases in government borrowing,

•Obama has devalued America’s currency by engaging in the practice of Quantitative Easing, allowing the Federal Reserve to purchase trillions of dollars of our national debt.
The list could continue.
A president, whose character is thus marked by acts which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to govern a free people.
