Would it sound very presumptuous to say that most, if not all Republicans dislike or even hate President Obama? It seems as though no matter what President Obama tries to initiate, there’s always room for disagreement.
Former Vice Presidential Candidate and head of the House Budget Committee, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc) is trying to pass a budget bill that has little chance of becoming law. According to Ryan’s proposed bill, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) would be repealed and there would be cuts to Pell Grants, Medicaid, and food stamps.
There have been versions of this proposal passed in the House over the last three years, but it hasn’t passed Congress because of the Democratically-controlled Senate.
One important point you need to consider is ‘the fact that Republicans in the House are pushing this document again illustrates both their conservatism and their confidence. Ryan introduced this budget on the exact same day President Obama announced that 7 million people had enrolled in the new health care law. Far from being wary of taking away insurance some Americans got for the first time, the GOP boldly announced it would seek to eliminate that entire system.’
Doesn’t it seem that the truth needs to be told to the American people. The Republicans simply don’t like President Obama. It’s not Obamacare (fully), it’s the President. Let’s face it – President Obama has a heart for taking care of those who can’t afford to take care of themselves for one reason or another. Money that is allocated to help those at the bottom move up closer to the top presents a problem to many within the Republican regime. They see it as a culture of dependency on programs.
The agenda of the Republican Party is simply to undo anything President Obama has done. With their eyes on the 2016 election, they are committed to getting back into the White House. If they are successful, watch out. If a Democrat takes office, the pressure to keep programs in place will continue to go on with a fight.
Check out this example: “In Kentucky, for example, more than 300,000 people have obtained health insurance through the law (Obamacare). But in 2012, more than 1 million people in the state backed Mitt Romney.”
Mid-term elections are crucial to what will happen in the future. Here’s a warning for you. The 2016 election is important, but you better not overlook or underestimate what the mid-term election can do to healthcare, Medicaid, Pell Grants, and other programs and services.
