Memes, Obama, and Barack Obama: Barack Obama Calls Republicans' Attempt to Repeal Affordable Care Act, "Aggravating @balleralert Barack Obama Calls Republicans' Attempt to Repeal Affordable Care Act, "Aggravating"-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it comes to the current state of the country, many of us try to remain optimistic. But recently, even former president BarackObama had to admit how fed up he is with some of these issues. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ On Wednesday, Obama spoke during a ceremony held by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation about the Republicans’ recent attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “When I see people trying to undo that hard-earned progress for the 50th or 60th time, with bills that would raise costs or reduce coverage, or roll back protections for older Americans or people with pre-existing conditions … for whom coverage would, once again, be almost unobtainable, it is aggravating,” Obama said. “And all of this being done without any demonstrable economic or actuarial or plain common-sense rationale, it frustrates me.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “And it’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents, but typically that’s how progress is won and how progress is maintained,” he continued. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The GOP Congress is not backing down when it comes to this issue though. They are currently trying to pass a bill proposed by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.). The proposal is intended to repeal and replace the ACA with a new health care system that would be detrimental to millions, especially those with serious medical illnesses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What do you think about Obama's statement?

Bill Clinton, Chicago, and cnn.com: Morehouse Flips Presidents' Day To 'Obama Day @17th thsoulj Another opportunity to shed light and love on former President BarackObama happened Monday (Feb. 19) when Morehouse College helped led a celebratory movement with the replacement of President’s Day for “Obama Day.”Presented by NewsOne, conversations on Obama’s legacy, as well as the influence of former first lady MichelleObama, were highlighted at the historic institution by author and academic Michael Eric Dyson, activist Michaela Angela Davis, New York Magazine’s Rembert Browne, Jamilah Lemieux of Interactive One and more. From panels on the Affordable Care Act to Obama’s connection to people of color, no topic went overlooked. The same happened online as those who supported the former POTUS praised his legacy online.Obama also saw another accomplishment when he was named the 12th best president among historians. For the first time, Obama was eligible for the CSPAN-headed survey which asks 91 historians to rate the previous 43 presidents across ten categories. The categories include, “Public Persuasion,” “Crisis Leadership,” “Economic Management,” “Moral Authority,” “International Relations,” “Administrative Skills,” “Relations with Congress,” “Vision-Setting An Agenda,” “Pursued Equal Justice for All,” and “Performance Within the Context of His Times.” Bill Clinton landed at 15, George Bush at 20, the late John F. Kennedy at 8 and Abraham Lincon at number 1. People also took to the streets for “Not My President’s Day,” a rally featuring those against President Donald Trump. CNN reports demonstrations took place in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles to continue the “momentum” of the historic Women’s March in January. 17thsoulja BlackIG17th presidentsday

Memes, Paul Ryan, and Survivor: Cancer Survivor Tells Paul Ryan: "I'd Be Dead" Without Obamacare 17th Soulia4 A man who survived cancer despite a grim diagnosis challenged House Speaker PaulRyan (R-Wis.) on his efforts to repeal Obamacare. “Because of the Affordable Care Act, I’m standing here today,” Jeff Jeans told Ryan at a CNN town hall event on Thursday. Jeans, who identified himself as a longtime Republican who had worked on campaigns for Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, used to oppose the law. But then, he said, that changed when he was given six weeks to live and needed health insurance to get treatment. As a small business owner, Jeans explained, he doesn’t get health insurance through work like many people do. “I rely on the Affordable Care Act to be able to purchase my own insurance,” he said. And with a pre-existing condition, he likely would have had a hard time buying coverage in the pre-Obamacare U.S. “I want to thank President Obama from the bottom of my heart because I’d be dead if it weren’t for him,” he said. Ryan told Jeans that Republicans intend to replace President Barack Obama’s signature health law― which he referred to as being in a “death spiral”― “with something better,” though their plans largely remain a mystery. The Senate on Wednesday night took a major step towards repealing Obamacare, passing a budget resolution that made way for Congress to strip funding for the law. The House will take up the resolution on Friday. Read more stories here from people who say Affordable Care Act saved their lives. 17thsoulja BlackIG17th They have no plan 😂 that's like saying I know you don't have a parachute just jump and we will figure something out . If anything they gonna do one of two things strip it an defund parts of it so it's horrible and blame it on obama. Then come back in patch up the holes they dug into it change the name and give the credit to Trump that's what wypipo do 🙄 rich wypipo don't care how many poor white people they have to throw under the bus 🚌 in order to undermine black people .

 "Net Neutrality" is Obamacare for the Internet; the
 Internet should not operate at the speed of government.
 7:43 AM-10 Nov 2014
 This led me to assume one of two things
 → Thing #1.
 When you accepted campaign funds from telecom lobbyists last
 year* they asked that you publicly smear Net Neutrality
 Thing #a.
 You don't actually know what Net Neutrality is.
 There is very little I can do about Thing #. and so I'll instead
 work on fixing Thing #. And I'm going to do that by being a
 super terrific At dude and explaining to you exactly how
 Net Neutrality works.

<p>Ted Cruz is 100% correct actually.  Not only does he understand how net neutrality works, he also understands how the federal government works as well, which proponents of net neutrality do not.  </p>
<p>Letting the FCC regulate the internet is exactly like Obamacare.  Remember when Obama lied to you about the Affordable Care Act? “<em>If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.</em>&ldquo; &rdquo;<em>If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.</em>&ldquo; &rdquo;<em>It’s going to lower your premiums $2,500 per family, per year.</em>&ldquo;  I think you get the point.  Now Obama is going around touting how we should go the old &rdquo;<a href="http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2340818">public utility</a>&ldquo; route.  He also says he doesn’t want them to have control of ISPs per say, he just want the FCC to force them to be &quot;equal.&rdquo; Yeah, not much difference.  In doing so, you are taking the power away from the individual ISPs (which is bad enough) and handing it over to the biggest monopoly in the world, the federal government.  That would only be the beginning if the government ever did nationalize the internet.  The government couldn’t even build a simple website after spending $2 Billion on it, but you’re going to trust them with this?  Only a fool would still trust that much power over something so free and open right now to the world’s biggest bumbling bureaucracy.  The government can only exacerbate the situation.  That’s okay though, because bandwagoning over little understood causes via a hashtag campaign and based on loose information has become an internet pastime.</p>
<p>And before you start making unjust statements about Senator Cruz not understanding what net neutrality is, you might want to actually read up on <a href="http://www.cnet.com/news/comcast-vs-netflix-is-this-really-about-net-neutrality/">the real issue between Netflix and Comcast</a> first.  Because it’s far more complicated than “Comcast was bullying Netflix.”  But you got to keep the spotlight on the evil corporations though.  They’re the bad guy in your sordid tale.</p>
