Ben Ray and Michelle LOVE ObamaCare and the Individual Mandate

How much do New Mexico’s Democratic House members LOVE the unpopular law known as ObamaCare? So much that they have voted to impose the individual mandate as planned even while the Obama Administration has delayed implementation of the employer mandate for one year. In other words, you the average person should not receive the same benefit as big businesses with more than 50 employees who simply can’t be expected to comply with the health care mandate.

Needless to say, this is not a position supported by large numbers of Americans. In fact, the position advocated by Lujan and Lujan-Grisham has a “robust” 12 percent support according to new polling.

Interesting that New Mexico’s Congressional Democrats —self-appointed advocates for the little-guy — are so willing to throw the average person under the bus while supporting big business, no? It would be nice if these two — along with the rest of our delegation — supported a year-long delay in the law our outright repeal of this law which is no longer even popular with the union base of the Democratic Party which supported passage of the law in the first place.

    1. Why limit it to Albuquerque. Rick Lopez of Torrance County lives in CD-1 and would be an outstanding U.S. Representative. He’s smart, hard working, good business man, good family man and extremely well respected in his community by Republicans, Independents and many Democrats by earning their respect.

  1. If they love the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) so much, why aren’t they on it. There’s a message there if they refuse to participate, but condemn the proletariat to live under it.

    Having done business in Canada and relatives in Sweden, I’s a bit familiar with government managed health care and fear greatly for my children and grandchildren.

    Already in some states with a majority of Democrat voters, insurance premiums have increased as much as 88% in the past year alone. P.J. O’Rourke said it best, “If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free.”
