Is your 401K safe from Obama??
The real anti-Americans

Romneycare and Obamacare are the same whether Graham admits it or not

When newly elected Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts attacked the Democrats’ healthcare plan during the Republican address two weeks ago, Senior White House Adviser David Axelrod said on ABC’s This Week: “Let me note that Sen. Brown comes from a state that has a healthcare format in his state that is similar to the one we’re trying to enact here. He voted for it and said he wouldn’t repeal it. So we’re just trying to give the people in America the same opportunities that the people in Massachusetts have.”

Visibly agitated when appearing on the same program, Sen. Lindsey Graham said of Axelrod’s comments: “The American people are getting tired of this crap. No way in the world is what they did in Massachusetts like what we’re about to do in Washington. To suggest that Scott Brown is basically campaigning against the bill in Washington that is like the one in Massachusetts is complete spin.”

Americans are indeed tired of lying politicians, but the only crap being put forth here is by Graham. And it’s not just Axelrod who is pointing out the similarities between the Democrats’ healthcare plan and Mitt Romney’s Republican model — everyone is.

Let’s start with the liberals. The popular blog Think Progress notes: “Both plans require people to purchase coverage, and both provide affordability credits to those who can’t afford insurance. Both create insurance exchanges, both establish minimum creditable coverage standards for insurers, and both require employers to contribute towards reform.”

Making similar observations from a conservative perspective, The American Spectator’s Philip Klein writes: “If Obamacare passes, Romney will be left telling angry primary voters that the only real difference between the two plans is that he implemented his policies at the state level, while Obama did it through the federal government. It’s sort of like saying, ‘As governor, I raised state income taxes, but the thought of raising federal income taxes — that’s an outrage!’”  read more>>>>>>>>>
