Obama Tells Donors: Second Term to Redo HealthCare


President Barack Obama is confiding to Democratic donors that he may have to revisit the health-care issue in a second term, a position at odds with his publicly expressed confidence that the U.S. Supreme Court will uphold the Affordable Care Act, according to three Democratic activists.

As he previewed his agenda for donors at a May 14 fundraiser, Obama said he may be forced to try to revise parts of his health-care plan, depending on how the court rules later this month, said one activist, who requested anonymity to discuss the president’s comments.

While Obama is discussing with wealthy donors the prospect of a rebuke from the court, administration officials are coordinating with health-care-reform groups on how to manage their public response in the aftermath of the decision.

    Is he finally getting the REAL Picture of his presidency or has Kagan leaked the bad news already.
    We and He will know in a short time.

  2. aimee says:

    Why would have to re-do something that was done behind closed doors and was not read by the people who voted on it….oh I know because Obamacare was shoved down people’s throats and is unpoplar! ANYTHING TO MAKE THE GREAT ONE LOOK GOOD!!!

  3. kategray says:

    What crock, you do not let the fox back in the hen house when he has already killed your hens.

  4. Doc says:

    Why? What was wrong with the first one?

    • Phillip in TX says:

      Everything from the cover page to the last page. I think that pretty well covers it.

  5. Chiefbuck says:

    Translation; My failed health care plan is doomed and I need another try to help with my spread the wealth goal. It lacked the necessary confusion that is necessary to confuse the public and therefore requires another level of legalese and bureaucratic language to obfuscate the real intention. So get out your checkbooks if you intend to receive further “appreciation” from this administration.

  6. Richard says:

    Unless he gets another majority of dumbocraps in both the house and the senate he can look all he wants (hope that will only a couple a months as a lame duck) but will never get anything through the congress, and that still hs to happen.

  7. Michael G. says:

    Instead of a “redo” how about a Don’t-do! Go beyond that–Dump-it!

    • TM says:

      They should scrap the whole thing as it’s has more pork in it than george soros has money.

    • WallyW says:

      How about solving much of what caused the problem in the first place: get the federal government out of the healthcare business entirely?

  8. Doc says:

    So, does that mean that the expected taxes to occur this coming January, 2013–won’t happen???

  9. DGR says:

    YEAH! Let’s give him another four years so he can re-do what he crammed down our throats the last four years. WHAT ABOUT JOBS, THE ECONOMY, EDUCATION????? AND YOU WANT ANOTHER FOUR YEARS….DILUSIONAL!

  10. Phil says:

    Only pres. Oduma’s o-dumb-ass fans would buy THAT story. There’s no way OdumaCare II will pass any Republican chamber of Congress.

  11. Buck says:

    Let us just hope that the people who were duped the first time won’t fall for the same trap again.

  12. Samuel says:

    He lost the vote of the court and he knows it! Why else would he make such a statement? I would loved to have heard the conversation that passed on this great news to him! It’s over Barry, or whatever name you are using today. Let’s all work at not only defeating him in November, but make it a roaring landslide of the voters disapproval of his wrecking our economy and the disgrace he and his gang of thugs have brought to the White House.

  13. noob says:

    Rather than a REDO, we need a new leader to UNDO what this pathetic excuse for a president has done.

  14. Orchard gal says:

    All I can say about Obama is ‘Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire!’

  15. BARB says:

    How cute. He actually thinks he’s going to have a second term. LOL!

    • Charles says:

      Actually, he should have another term but instead of serving in the White House, it should be in Levenworth. Perhaps he can use the time to think about the major screw-up he caused in his first four years.

    • deanied says:

      SECOND TERM….he never should have had a first term!! He has been a failure & liar since day one! I agree…a term in Levinworth would be appropriate!

    • Robert says:

      Barb,
      I don’t think he really plans on being reelected for a second term. I also don’t think he really cares whether or not he is reelected! From what I see this individual he honestly believes that God has given him dominion over America to do with this he so chooses.

      For the last three years he has been putting in place everything he needs to seize control of the country. While he was running he stated he wanted a private police force answerable to the executive branch that was as well armed and well-trained as a military. This is one of the promises he did keep is called homeland security. Another interesting part is that homeland security place an order for 550 million hollowpoint ammunition.

      He has conveniently made sure that the US military , the best and the brightest, are out of the country so that they can no longer defend America and the Constitution. Dirty Diaper Head Obama does not and never had America’s best interest at heart. You said about to systematically destroy everything that America stands for.
