I applaude his long overdue action. That being said, by so doing, he has increased his voter base for the upcoming election. I'm not saying the man doesn't care, I'm just not sure he would have done it if there wasn't something in it for him. Same goes for why he is pushing to have illegal aliens made citizens if they have resided in the US for a certain amount of time..build up that voter base. This is worrisome on two levels. One, all the immigrants from long ago wanted to be here so badly that they were willing to jump throught all the hoops that the law requires..learn english, learn about US History and more....Now Obama wants to just hand Citizenship out like candy for the purpose of a percieved expanded voter base? Two, the most prevalent illegals in the US are Hispanics...Culturally hard working and industrious. Why is that worriesome? Because they, and all other persons with a strong work ethic, will be stabbed in the back if and when Obama is able to push and fully implement Obamacare. How? Because Obamcare is a thinly veiled massive, socialist giveaway program, that will benefit the sloths in our country more than anyone else..and NEWS FLASH: The people who work the hardest will be penalized by having their hard earned dollars taken away by the huge tax increases required to fund the program.
Beware: Do not have the wool pulled over your eyes. There is no free lunch from the Goverment, that is unless you are a lowlife leech who sees no benefit in being productve, and who sees giving birth as additional income.
I worked in the welfare system for 30 years and hard working people who have fallen on hard times, who have no income, but have personal property that they have worked years to get, cannot get help unless they strip themselves of all they have worked for. They are honest they fess up to what they have and get disqualified.
The pimps, prostitutes, drug dealers, scam artists etc know the system and will leave their thick gold bracelets necklaces and rings at home when they come to the welfare office and they and keep their real property and luxury vehicles in other persons names to not be traced. Because their livliehood is "the hustle" they know how to hustle the Government too. All this will happen with Obamacare too, AND IF YOU ARE A WORKER YOU WILL PAY. I am married to a welfare fraud investigator, and I can tell you fraud is rampant in all government programs, but hard to prove or stop.
To a hard working person like myself the nine most terrifying words in the english language are, "I'M FROM THE GOVERNMENT AND I'M HERE TO HELP" Come November, If you belong to a group that he has done some benefit for, appreciate the justice of it, But don't be so stupid as to not see what lies beneath!! And if you are a slug and sloth and dont care because you want the free handout, come out of your selfishness for a moment and think of your kids and future granbabies....Maybe they will object to your unproductive way of life and go the other way. In that case they will be suffering economically long after you are gone. That's all I have to say!
