Dear Senator Feinstein,
How can you still remain a cheerleader for Obama’s Healthcare Denial and Rationing program and refuse to debate Elizabeth Emken on the issue?
Obama promised he would sign no law on healthcare unless it was revenue neutral. It seems you are in his league as far as lying is concerned.
At least he is going to be forced to debate challenger Romney, you are a coward and deserve zero respect from California voters.
Unlike the savings promoted by the White House and cheered publicly by Democrats like Dianne Feinstein, the individual mandate in President Obama’s health care law will cost 6 million taxpayers a total of $7 billion in 2016, according to new estimates by the Congressional Budget Office
The health care law requires Americans to either purchase government-approved insurance or pay a penalty. The mandate starts in 2014, and the penalties fully go into effect in 2016. The CBO estimates that 30 million will be uninsured by that year, but most will be exempted from the mandate, because they are unauthorized immigrants, members of Indian tribes, or don’t earn enough income to file taxes, among other reasons.
Among those who will have to pay a mandate penalty, 4.7 million will have incomes below 500 percent of the federal poverty line, according to the CBO, which is projected to be $60,000 for individuals and $123,000 for families of four by 2016. Given that the Supreme Court ruled the mandate was a tax, this would be a direct violation of President Obama’s pledge not to raise taxes on those earning less than $250,000.
The CBO found that the Supreme Court’s additional ruling giving states the ability to opt out of the law’s expansion of Medicaid actually slightly increased the number of people subject to the mandate, because fewer people would be insured through the program.
Nancy Pelosi’s famous quip that Democrats needed to pass this bill to find out what’s in it, is an arrow to the heart of the senator.
Dianne Feinstein made lofty promises about Obamacare without a clue as to the devastating nature of its growing costs or its hidden tax hikes. I’m sure voters would like to find out why, but as long as Feinstein conveniently avoids public engagement, they’ll just have to get used to disappointment.”
Feinstein’s record is clearly not one open for debate.
