Obama using financial pain to get his way

We all now know that President Obama wants the sequester cuts to be as painful as possible to the public. What nerve President Obama has shutting down White House tours, and he's looking for more ways to hurt the public. We know he's attempting to close air traffic control towers and even wants to close national parks this summer, all while claiming it's out of his hands.

So you have to ask yourself, are President Obama and his Democratic cohorts doing the same with Obamacare, trying to cause as much pain to the public as possible? When estimates say that more than 30 million people will lose their health insurance in the first year alone and be forced to shop for Obama-approved insurance that will cost them $15,000 a year, that adds to the pain. When millions of people who once had some health insurance find Obama-approved insurance unaffordable and choose to go without coverage and pay the tax or fine, that also adds to the pain. This is all while people who don't work, who collect public aid, get food stamps, get welfare, get Section 8 housing and more will receive free health care.

Now, if this is not meant to cause pain and hurt to people who work and pay taxes, I don't know what will.
