GOP Health Care Fiasco: If they voted against Obama Care in 2010, why are they voting for Obama Care in 2017?

The Affordable Care Act...aka "Obama Care", one of the worst pieces of legislation in America's history!
The House passed the Senate bill with a 219–212 vote on March 21, 2010, with 34 Democrats and all 178 Republicans voting against it. The next day, Republicans introduced legislation to repeal the bill. Obama signed ACA into law on March 23, 2010.

Question of the day:
If all 178 Republicans voted against the Affordable Care Act back in 2010, then why are they voting for it now?
The so-called Affordable Care Act is really not that affordable.  Health insurance premiums increased 99% for individuals and 140% for families after the legislation was put into force.  "Force?"  The expression, "May the force be with you." takes on new meaning; you are forced to pay more for your health insurance whether you like it or not. 
If Republicans introduced legislation to repeal Obama Care in 2010 why do they want to replace it in 2017?  Repeal, repeal, repeal; stick that in your legislative brain and forget replace...we once had the best health care in the world before the government got involved so get the government out.

IN ONE EAR AND OUT THE OTHER

IN ONE EAR AND OUT THE OTHER
By Norman E. Hooben

While perusing the various news headlines I usually look for biases in the main stream media (MSM)…and it’s not too difficult to find.  Just a moment ago I caught this headline over at USA TODAY on line:
Political football: Judicial Watch finds Pence flight to Super Bowl cost $89,246
Bart Jansen, USA TODAY Published 5:39 p.m. ET July 14, 2017 | Updated 6:33 p.m. July 14, 2017
No sense reposting the narrative, the headline makes their point if there is one.  So the USA TODAY is attempting to play mind games with their readers hoping that this negative reporting will stick in the mind of the voter on the next run for the White House.  Believe me, there will be plenty more negatives to come.  But has any voter ever retained this kind of nonsense?  The spending habits of all presidents seem to go in one ear and out the other.  Just take for example the spending habits Barack Hussein Obama.  He cost the taxpayers $2,739,726.03 per day!  That headline read:

Did you remember that when you went to the voting booth?  Yeah, I bet!

"CNN also timed this and BBC wanted to film it when they were on
Note the white police officers leaving before the CNN shot & the Asian officers coming in. They then left after they went off air!"
The only other explanation could be if they were filming a movie.

WHOA! BREAKING NEWS:
CNN Producer Caught On Undercover Tape Admitting Trump-Russia Coverage Is BULLSH*T…”President Is Right To Say You Are ‘Witch Hunting’ Me” (VIDEO)
100 Percent Fed Up

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas reporters went undercover at CNN to investigate the Very Fake News network to determine the motivation behind CNN’s Trump-Russia collusion obsession. Since the inauguration, CNN has mentioned “Russian story” nearly 16,000 times.
Project Veritas’ reporters can be seen in the video below having a conversation with CNN’s supervising producer John Bonifield. The reporter talked to Bonifield first about the constant barrage of Trump-Russia stories on CNN. Bonifield admitted that although CNN has no evidence or proof of Trump involvement with Russia, they continue to make it their top story on CNN simply for “ratings” and to “make money.” Bonifield has worked as a journalist and as a producer for nearly 15 years at CNN, making him a pretty reliable source when it comes to how things work at CNN.
Bonifield actually confessed to the undercover Project Veritas journalist that President Trump is correct when he says the media is on a “witch hunt” to take him down. Bonifield told the reporter: “I think the President is right to say, like, look you are ‘witch hunting me’ you have no real smoking gun, you have no proof.”
Bonifield went on to admit how CNN is biased and is playing to their audience by attacking President Trump, therefore admitting that “Trump is good for business right now.” The Project Veritas reporter asked Bonifield, “But honestly, you think the whole Russia shit is bullshit?” to which Bonifield replied: “Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any big, giant proof. The way these leaks happen, they’d leak it. It’d leak. If it was something really good, it would leak.”
Watch the unbelievable video here:
Did the three resignations that took place at CNN today have anything to do with the impending release of O’Keefe’s explosive video proving that CNN manufactures Trump-Russia collusion stories for ratings, or for money?
The story about the three CNN employees resigning for publishing fake news broke yesterday. Is ti a coincidence that today, O’Keefe released this explosive bombshell video?
Here’s the story that broke yesterday: 
CNN employees have resigned for their role in pushing fake news about the Trump-Russia story that claimed a member of the Trump transition team was under investigation.
Reporter Thomas Frank, editor Eric Lichtblau and executive editor Lex Haris all resigned from their positions following a company-wide investigation into the single-sourced story that was quickly debunked, The Washington Post first reported. CNN quickly followed up with a story of their own on the resignations. Lichtblau reportedly oversaw the false story, while Haris headed up CNN’s investigative unit.
“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” CNN’s coverage quotes a company spokesman as saying.
Philly.com – On Thursday evening, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a potentially explosive report involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with potential ties to several associates of President Donald Trump.
But by Friday night, the story was removed from CNN’s website and all links were scrubbed from the network’s social media accounts.
“That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted,” CNN said in an editors note posted in place of the story. “Links to the story have been disabled.”

A Brief History of ‘Fake News’
By Paul Davis @ American Thinker

The original concept of fake news was called “disinformation,” an invention of Joseph Stalin, who coined the term.  Some writings from the time indicated that the Soviets in many cases considered disinformation to be a higher intelligence priority then actual intelligence collection. This appears to be a continuing philosophy, with intelligence collection left to independent hackers and the thrust of state sponsored intelligence going to disinformation (dezinformatsiya).
Disinformation is false information spread deliberately to deceive and cause chaos. Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking defector from the Soviet bloc explained in his book Disinformation that the ultimate measure of success for disinformation was when the major organs of the media coud be tricked into unknowingly propagating deliberate falsehoods.

But the Russians are far from the only ones practicing disinformation designed against political systems. The current investigations of alleged “Russian collusion” on Capitol Hill are the result of a disinformation campaign that was begun by the Democratic Party and continued when the mainstream media were fooled into publicizing the accusations as fact.
This is not to say the Russians weren’t involved. There was much made of the former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele’s “Trump Dossier.” The dossier contained a lot of unverified allegations against Trump that would lead the reader to assume the Russians were either in contact and helping him or that they had enough information to blackmail him once he was in office. What is less well publicized is that Steele paid for the information, that he paid what turned out to be Russian operatives, and that he was never able to verify the information he received. There have been attempts to breathe life into the dossier by pointing out that parts seemingly have been verified by recent independent revelations. This is, however, part and parcel of a disinformation campaign, finding ways to shore up the reports you have already pushed out.

Of course, this type of reasoning can drive you crazy. If any lie can be proved true, then what is true?  Actually, it’s not that difficult.  You need multiple sources to confirm a story and they must be vetted to be trusted. This is where the disinformation campaign falls apart. The deeper you dig, the less the “facts” hold up.
This process appears to be happening now with the investigations into the Trump campaign and the Russians. The so-called multiple contacts between the campaign and Russian operatives were a bunch of disconnected and unrelated data points. So-and-so met with this person that has a connection to the Russian government. Look deep and there is a good and legitimate reason.  President Trumps’ son-in-law attempted to set up a back channel to Russia. This is standard stuff and we only knew about some of it by intercepting the Russian ambassador’s communications with Moscow that he knew were being intercepted and read. So, there was a meeting between Jared Kushner and the Russian Ambassador. This we know is true, but the exact contents may or may not have been revealed. If they were, it is still nothing, as back channels are a normal part of statecraft. We also know, or at least most believe, the DNC was hacked and e-mails released. This, however, is not a disinformation campaign since what was in the e-mails is true. This is a crime, as hacking is a crime, but it is not disinformation.

What was begun as a political talking point to explain the unexplainable, that Clinton lost to Trump, morphed into disinformation and is being carried so far that now the Russians have latched onto it to continue a campaign of disruption of the American government and political system.
What is happening now is that very good people are putting out misinformation, information that is not true but is believed to be so by those making the statements. Unfortunately, the process of countering the lies takes time and energy.  But as with Jared Kushner, the lies must be exposed and ended. I understand that the Dems would like to keep this going to win back the House of Representatives and the Senate, but the damage it is doing to the country is not worth it, even if it could work which is looking less and less likely. The American people are facing fatigue on this issue.

Disinformation only works if people refuse to think or find it easier not to. I ask all, to please think about what is being laid in front of you and see if it makes sense.
