Obama tries claiming GOP put Mandate and Obama care

Obama is trying to play a game of “Pin the Jackasses Tail on the Elephant. After spending the first two years in office bitching, moaning and crying about how the Republicans were blocking his healthcare bill he’s now trying to blame them for the law. It’s a pretty clear indication of how stupid he believes Americans are. the sad part is many of his supporters are so blind that they’re willing to believe almost anything he says without question.

From The Washington Free Beacon:   White House tries to rebrand Mandate written by 

The Obama administration is now referring to Obamacare as a “bi-partisan bill” and calling the unpopular individual mandate “a Republican idea,” following three days of tough questioning by the Supreme Court.

No Republican voted for the Affordable Care Act on final passage.

He also referred to the individual mandate as the “individual responsibility” clause of the bill, in an attempt to distance the administration from the term individual mandate.
