Is Obamacare as great as proponents proclaim?

August 30, 2013 

Have you ever heard the statement about good leaders leading by example? I believe it.

We are now being told ignorance of Obamacare is hurting its chances of success. Since our president is refusing to be included, is he ignorant?

Our senators and representatives, including Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Harry Reid, have rejected the coverage. The big unions, with the advice of their high-priced lawyers, are rejecting Obamacare and getting an exemption from it. Also, civil service wants no part of it. Many are getting an exemption from Obamacare.

If Obamacare is so great, why is Obama granting exemptions for his supporters?

Should we go against the example of our leaders?

Ask yourself, "Do they know something we don't?" Or are they all ignorant?
