In the past I have both insulted and ridiculed Obama and I still disagree with his policies and ideology but after some research into finding out what makes this guy tick I do have some empathy. My source was Wikipdia researching his mother. Named Stanley by her father who wanted a boy. She was an atheist. Three months pregnant when she married Obama Sr. Divorced him when she found out he had a wife and two kids in Kenya. DNA testing indicates she may be descendant of a slave. Both sets of parents did not approve of her marriage to Obama Sr. Always worked in some form of government job. Uterine cancer. Denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions and denied aid for health insurance. Obama worshiped his mother who died in her early fifties. I don't believe he wrote Obamacare or read it but indicated provisions based on his mothers memory. I don't object to some provisions like pre-existing. I object to Obamas arrogance and bullheadedness, not caring how many are adversely affected by its entirety and not willing to accept changes like buying across state lines. He is afraid that the bill will disappear. This is not a bill to help every American but a tribute to his mother and scam for income re-distribution based on her sparse income. Empathy yes...ideology no. ed

There are a lot of hardluck stories throughout history. Some are worthy of empathy. I have no problem stating that I have no empathy or sympathy for Obama. I loathe his existence and what he represents as being a plague to human kind. He's been coddled and been given carte blanche to play emperor by his handlers from birth until present day. A spoiled puke of a human being.

Hitler had a similar background! Might explain his habitual lying with no regard for the truth. He doesn't seem to mind to poop on anything that gets in his way. It's amazing to me what he has done to the American worker (illegal immigration) and he still gets blind support from unions. And for what it's worth I'm not anti union, I'm pro free Americans!!

Like everything else that comes out of Obama`s mouth,the story about his mother not having insurance was a lie to pull on the heart strings,She had healthcare insurance and only had to pay a small deductible.
While most of us had to work our way threw school Obama never had to work a day in his life,he admits the only real job he ever had was a couple hours at a Baskin-Robbins and he claimed it was such hell that he quit after a couple hours.
Poor hard luck Obama,poor baby.

Remember President Barack Obama's mother? Though the airwaves currently echo with his vow "If you like your plan . . ." I keep remembering Obama's account of his mother being denied coverage by her insurance company as she lay dying of cancer.

The moving and infuriating story was a staple on the 2008 campaign trail. His mother had insurance, he explained, but when she came down with cancer, her insurance company claimed her disease was a "pre-existing condition" and refused to pay for her treatment. In a debate with Sen. John McCain, Obama said: "For my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend the last months of her life in the hospital room arguing with insurance companies because they're saying that this may be a pre-existing condition and they don't have to pay her treatment, there's something fundamentally wrong about that."





There would be, if it had been true. But when New York Times reporter Janny Scott researched the issue for her biography of the president's mother, she discovered letters proving beyond doubt that Cigna never denied Stanley Ann Dunham coverage for her disease. The dispute was over a disability plan that would have paid some of her other expenses.

The White House did not deny Scott's account, but shrugged it off as something that had happened long ago. Not so long that it couldn't be milked one last time though, for a 2012 campaign film. In "The Road We've Traveled," the message remained unchanged -- a greedy insurance company had cut off Obama's mother at her moment of maximum vulnerability, and it cost Dunham her life.

If someone comes to you and asks for financial aid to cope with a family member who is gravely ill, and you comply, how are you going to feel when you learn there is no sick relative?

It's different in politics, explained Michael Cohen in the New York Daily News. The American people want too many contradictory things. "Seemingly, the only path to change is telling voters what they want to hear."

Doubtless that's what Obama tells himself to justify his deceptions. It's a form of "lying for justice." If your goals are noble enough, truth is an acceptable casualty.

Obama's propensity to lie is finally widely acknowledged, but it hasn't gone far enough. It isn't just that the pledge about keeping your plan was a noble lie -- the whole law is based upon lies.

The Dunham tale was meant to personify the hundreds of thousands -- or millions -- of Americans who were "dumped" by insurance companies when they became sick. This is an invented tale, and might have been rebutted by the insurance industry if they hadn't gotten into bed with Obama in 2010 in return for millions of coerced new customers. As the Washington Free Beacon reported, academic studies have estimated that policies were dropped in only four-tenths of one percent of cases in the individual market.

In a 2010 radio address, Obama said one carrier was "systematically dropping the coverage of women diagnosed with breast cancer." The CEO of WellPoint, which had reason to believe the president was referring to her company, responded that they had provided coverage in the previous year to 200,000 breast cancer patients and had canceled just four policies for fraud or misrepresentation.

If there had been a true epidemic of wrongly canceled policies, wouldn't there have been a slew of lawsuits and an outcry?

The notion that the nation faced a "crisis" of "46 million uninsured" was also dishonest. Pre-Obamacare health care in America was hardly nirvana, but the truth about the uninsured, according to the Congressional Budget Office, was that 71 percent were without insurance for a year or less. Only about 16 percent were uninsured for two or more years. More than 9 million of those counted among the uninsured were not citizens. Another 6 million who said they were without insurance actually were signed up with Medicaid, and 4 million more were eligible for Medicaid but had failed to enroll.

The true number of uninsured individuals was closer to 15 million (5 million of whom were young, single adults). There were many possible solutions for them that didn't require tearing down the entire system. In any case, the CBO estimates that even if Obamacare were fully implemented and worked smoothly, the number of uninsured Americans in 2023 would be, drumroll please, 30 million.

Obamacare was never about the uninsured or justice for those badly treated by insurance companies. It was always about power -- gaining it and keeping it for the Democratic Party and the central government. It was based on lies about the preceding system and sold on lies about its consequences.

More BS. He is not a family man, and seems to deny they exist. So, which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Crock. Education paid for by others, registered as a foreign student,records sealed, was a foreign student till it was time to go into politics.

From the onset I said this was a Manchurian candidate.

Now a 5 million dollar home is being built in Hawaii for after the White house, and not a single dollar of his is going into it. Stinko Mucho.

If you want to have empathy have it for the people who are going to die of cancer because of this stupid law. Have it for the middle class, dying an uindeseverved death at the hands of Progressivism.

Obama is a congenital liar, condemned from his own mouth. We knoww precious little more about him BUT we do know enough to clearly state that he should never have been President and should be IMPEACHED forthwith, not for who he is but for what he has done!..
