Loretta Sanchez Hosts Obamacare Town Hall; Wonder If Tough Questions Will Be Asked?

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Loretta-Sanchez_helmet.jpg
Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez may need her combat helmet Saturday afternoon as she leads a town hall meeting in Garden Grove dedicated to the oh-so-controversial Obamacare.

The office of the central OC Democrat, whose party prefers to call it the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, is actually co-hosting the event with the office of Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-Long Beach).

They'll be joined by representatives of CalOptima, the Coalition of Orange County Community Health Centers, Orange County Asian and Pacific Islander Community Alliance and the Orange County Social Services Agency.

The fun is to run from 1:30-3 p.m. Saturday at the Nhan Hoa Clinic, 7761 Garden Grove Blvd., Garden Grove.

The town hall is happening now to address questions as a whole new healthcare marketplace comes to fruition on Oct. 1. If you can't make Saturday's event in Garden Grove, local Organizing for Action (OFA) volunteers and Obamacare supporters host an education event from noon to 2 p.m. Monday at Santa Ana College, 17th and Bristol streets in Santa Ana.

Monday, Sept. 16, has been declared by OFA a national day of action for the Affordable Care Act.

Welcome to the great Liberal Utopia... The Peoples Republic Of the United States.

Lets name a couple other countries where the "elected officials" are not required to follow the laws they push on the people... China... North Korea... USSRussia...

Why are you, Congress, and Congressional aides exempt from Obamacare? . Don't you have any faith in the laws you passed. Do as I say, don't do as I do. Why are you exempt while the American people  have to pay for Obamacare  that they do not want.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE JOB IN ORDER TO PAY FOR IT THEN HOW ARE YOU GOING TO PAY FOR  IT. YOU CAN'T BUY WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO BUY WITH NO MONEY.

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act????

I'm not a patient of any hospitals at this point in my life so why should I need it if I am not being treated by any doctors.

Well I guess they'll just have to bill me for it because I've been reading some of the articles that are in other papers and if there aren't any jobs available in order to buy something called insurance for health whether you need it not then I won't be able to pay for it whether it's mandatory or not. 26 to 29 MILLION people do not have jobs and are unemployed.

Marvelous.  I've had two insurance companies drop me because of ObamaCare. One was the top rated insurance company in America who I've been with for decades.  I signed up with the 2nd, and now they've given me notice that they are ending my policy on Dec 31. Both letters stated explicity that it was due to ACA. Thanks, Obama. Thanks, Loretta, for pushing this garbage on us to increase your power and reduce our choices.

@tongue_twister_for_t  Yeah that's a problem. 20% of US companies have cut jobs because of ObamaCare, and another 20% have cut employee's hours to put them under the full-time employee threshold. Imagine what will happen to jobs after ACA actually kicks in.  Thanks, Obama.

@tongue_twister_for_t -- The Obama Regime has made history walking on the backs of the working public. You either pay $7000 a year in premiums, or $95 to opt out of the health care program. If everyone opts out, then the program will not be financially stable. Then what? Will Obama pass another tax on the working public?

@MatthewTCoker @JGlanton do you think she would care? My ins is up %60 in two years and she already knows that. I am a big fan matt but this obama care is total bullshit. I would pay more if it was universal healthcare but it is not and as soon as obamacare passed health care stocks went up %10 percent... The peoples president my ass pardon me if I don't stand up for hail to the chief
