Response To Obama's One-Year Extension Fix

Here's my response to Obama's 'compromise' of one-year extensions for plans that are being discontinued because they don't meet the new regulations: GO JUMP OFF A CLIFF, MR. PRESIDENT.

Your so-called "Affordable" Care Act is forcing millions of Americans out of plans they *like* and *can* afford and into plans they *don't want* and *can't afford*. And now out of the goodness of your heart, you will allow them to keep the ones they like for an extra year. WHO THE F* ARE YOU TO TELL US IF THE COVERAGE WE'VE CHOSEN TO BUY IS SUFFICIENT? This has nothing to do with charity for the uninsured, you're trying to force us at the barrel of a gun to fork over more money to corporate cartels that have you on a short leash. Americans are not buying it, and if your party's politicians in Congress don't rebel against you, we will ballot-lynch them in 2014 in ways that make 2010 seem pale in comparison. One look at your sinking approval ratings will demonstrate that your army of braindead groupies parroting "Hope and change, man!" has dwindled to a point where it won't save you.
