Obama Just Took to the Stage at the United Nations and Blasted Republicans

Former President Barack Obama ripped into current Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare on Wednesday, calling it “aggravating” to have to mobilize constantly to stop “real human suffering” being inflicted on Americans.

Sens. Bill Cassidy (R., La.) and Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) are pushing an Obamacare repeal bill which President Donald Trump said he would sign, although its passage is far from a done deal.

Obama spoke at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Goalkeepers” event and never mentioned Trump and Republicans by name, but he touted the efforts of both politicians and citizens to pass the Affordable Care Act, saying people were alive today because of it.

“Now, the legislation that we passed was full of things that still need to be fixed. It wasn’t perfect, but it was better,” Obama said. “So when I see people trying to undo that hard-won progress for the 50th or 60th time, with bills that would raise costs or reduce coverage or roll back protections … It is aggravating. And all of this being done without any demonstrable economic or actuarial or plain common-sense rationale, it frustrates.”

Obama added it was frustrating to have to “mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents.”

“But typically that’s how progress is won, and how progress is maintained, on every issue,” he said.

The last Republican effort to repeal Obamacare failed in July when Republican Sens. John McCain (R., Ariz.), Shelley Moore Capito (R., W. Va.) and Lisa Murkowski (R., Alaska) joined all 48 Senate Democrats to vote it down.

      All your comentss are just about you and what you think! Which is nothing! We all know how crooked you were as President, money you took, and you are part of the swamp! You are finished! Why don’t you do what other Presidents do after leaving office? Tetire and keep your mouth shut! Our good honest President is doing a good job cleansing up your mess you got us all in!

    Why is he even still talking, he’s not relevant anymore. At the UN no less? He’s been disgraced so send him to Kenya, his homeland

    Why doesn’t this looser fade into the sunset. We no longer have to listen to him. He trashed our country for 8 long years & we couldn’t be happier to replace him with TRUMP. Why does he still think he is important & that we have to listen to him. Why doesn’t he & his male wife & girls go back to Kenya where they came from. Tired of seeing him think he is still important.

    He needs to keep his mouth shut and get out of politics … He did his damage now let Trump try to get it all fixed! He just has to put himself out there trying to cause more problems.

    Why is he speaking? Is he not speaking in said subject subversion? Why is he being alowed act like a shadow president? I think he in no way shape or form should be addressing anyone at the U.N, he had his time and he needs to bow out.

    Guess a lot of us DID NOT GET THE MEMO that says we’re NOT allowed to tamper with ANY of BHO’S precious decisions, exec orders ( or is that odors)or faulty legislation. It’s a shame that this ‘blot’ on our history still has a forum to peddle a ton of co***e c**p to the misguided and misinformed among us, especially the younger people, IMHO.

    Who does this person is to go before the United Nation and blast the Republican party when you thumbed your nose at this country. You have been caught in so many dirty deals against this country. You are a disgrace to the United States; back in the start of our country you would have had a place before a firing squad for treason.

    Was this speech at the U.N. or at the Bill Gates funded Goalkeepers meeting?
    Either way, Odumber needs to go far far away and shut those big fat lips, as WE THE PEOPLE no longer care (and I never did) what he thinks or feels about ANYTHING. He was and is a loser, traitor, liar, thief, criminal narcissist lost in the delusion of his own grandeur!

      He has no business even addressing the U.N. He is a treasonous p.o.s. That should have been prosecuted for the problems he caused in this country. All President Trump is trying to do is give us a real affordable care act. Only he’s not trying to force it on people, it is being done legally. Wish someone would put one all the way thru obammy

    Liar and thief should be under investigation for treason . He should have his pension removed and any security clearances . He has no legacy and no library in his name should be allowed in this country . Its time to pull out of the UN and stop funding it immediately . He needs to be bankrupted for he is not a us citizen everything out of his mouth is a lie !

    It blows my mind when I even think Bill Gates would have Obama speaking about anything. He had 8 years of doing nothing but damage and now he still wants his additional 15 minutes of fame – Well he has had it now it is time for him to slither away. He is irrelevant. I put up with 8 years of him destroying the Country that I love and I am sick of hearing anything about him and his treacherous ways. My President is trying his best and working night and day to overcome the mess that Obama left and we “deplorables” are standing by his side and praying for him. God had a hand in my President getting elected and He is not going to let go and He is helping Trump to be a great President. Obama cannot stand it but it does not matter. He is a “has been”…………..

    Gee everything he mentioned in his speech is exactly what President Trump is saying about Obamacare!! If this was a great thing for the American people it wouldn’t need repeal/replace. He can’t stand not being in-charge. Why did he even get to speak, and who are the Americans he allotted to as inflicting real human suffering??? Aren’t the powers that be ever going to arrest him and keep him away from anything that will cause damage/doubt in the United States!

    You Trump supporters have a blind eye. What has trump done thus far, where is the wall, where is the health care for the U.S. where is the million he promised for harvey victims, because when he said he would give a million to Sandy that never happened. Every time he goes to play golf it cost tax payer 3.6 million per person. He has played 21 games verses 11 games for Obama. The Secret Service is running out of money to pay agents as a result of the frequent travel of President Trump and his family. Trump has bankrupted his companies not once, not twice but six times.Trump is under investigation, Obama was never under investigation. The Don has been surrounded by immigrants his entire life, put yet he wants to kick out students that pay taxes and have jobs. He conned all of you uneducated people, do your reseach, trump is a piece of shit!

      Sorry Celeste, you’re just bitter that BHO didn’t fully implement his Socialist plans, you know, a bunch of free shit. You can do your part though, by voluntarily surrendering 60% of your paycheck like they do in Denmark for example. BTW BHO officially bankrupted the US with his 10 trillion dollar spending spree.

      Were it not for the obstructionist in congress and the liberal media spreading lies and propaganda president TRUMP would be accomplishing more. First he has been cleaning up after 8 years of Obama’s destructive policies against this country. You will not hear of accomplishments from the liberals. So you will remain uninformed. Too bad for you

    September 21, 2017 at 5:37 pm

    He is a loser that just won’t go away. He left the Whitehouse as the worst President EVER. Eight years of playing golf and taking extravagant vacations on the taxpayers $$$$$. Leaving 20 Trillion $$$$$$$$$$$$$ debt. Why would anyone ever take advice from this LOSER? People like him is why we have a two term limit. Donald J. Trump will need 8 years to FIX the mess Obama made while in office. I hope we never make this mistake again.

We’ve finally got a real President in office and he is doing a great job. The world is looking up to him to get us to move ahead. He is a real leader. Just go away and stop making a fool of yourself. You will one day be exposed for who you really are. Count on it. So just back away.

    The real culprit here is Bill Gates the liberal oligarch who wants to rule the world. That he holds a meeting in the United Nations and allows the likes of Jerry Brown and Barack Obama to criticize the President is traitorous….they are all traitors and need to go to jail. MIcrosoft should be boycotted but they have tentacles in everything so it would be hard to do. BIllionaires like him and Warren Buffett, the Koch brothers need to be taxed to death!

    You are hilarious Celeste. Follow some real news and you wouldnt have to ask the questions. He’s done alot already. Far more then Obama in 8 yrs. Way too many things to list here. Obama is coming out on this issue because if it is repealed then that would be the last of anything he accomplished in his 8 yrs of destroying the country. He had his chance and blew it big time. His legacy of imploding Obamacare, weakened military, neglect of veterens, raised taxes, repressed middle class, disrespdct for the Blue, increased racial tension, BLM promotion, promotion of Muslim terrorists immigration and general demise of America is OVER! Time to repair!

    You’re no longer the president of our country. We don’t need to have to listen to your bully and above all you’re a piece of work!
    You need to shot up because we’re done listening to you for 8 years, 8 years of power and it get us nowhere. You’re belong in jail with the clintons comey and Loretta lynch.

    Why is he following Trump everywhere he goes? As soon as Trump leaves a country, Obama shows up.Germany, The Vatican, Houston, Florida, and recently, the UN.What is he up to? It is very strange behavior. Bush hasn’t shown up anywhere. Wasn’t his remark,”just one president at a time”. I guess he wasn’t listening. So maybe he’ll listen to us. WILL YOU PLEASE GO AWAY? We’re asking you quite nicely, as we don’t need you any more. You’ve done quite enough already, thank you!!!!!!.
