Petition to Repeal Obamacare posted on White House website


By the Full Metal Patriot

A petition to repeal Obamacare was posted on the White House website last week. (via: Verum Serum)

The White House launched a new site last week allowing the public to petition the Administration on various public policy issues. No doubt they intend to use this to mobilize the OFA-MoveOn-Kos armies around various election issues next year, to demonstrate how “popular” the Administration’s positions are. But at the moment the petition site seems to be largely dominated by various fringe issues, such as allowing the sale of raw milk, banning puppy mills, and of course…legalizing marijuana.

But some enterprising American managed to create and post a petition which I found just a little more worthwhile: to repeal ObamaCare.

Supposedly, if this petition gets to 5,000 signatures by October 22, then someone from the White House will issue some sort of response (if it doesn't mysteriously disappear before then). You have to register with the White House in order to vote – but all you need give is just a name and an email address. I think it’s worth it.

When I started this blog post, the counter was at 134. By the time I was registered and signed my name to this petition, the counter was already at 160 and is now listed on the White House site. We have a real opportunity to show the Obama administration just how unpopular their heavy-handed legislation is with We The People! Sign your name to the petition and then spread the word via Google+, Twitter, and Facebook!

Now we'll see if President Obama will actually listen to the American people, or if he will continue to behave like a tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood.

  1. Even if it stays up and gets the required signature, Obama will use it to demonstrate the hatred of the Tea Party and how we want Americans to become sick and die. Most likely will posture himself as the champion of righteousness (try not to laugh or barf) and will show his commitment to the people (again, try not to laugh or barf) by fighting against the bigots that posted that petition.

  2. It seems the this website is not allowing certain emails to recieve confirmations or password resets. My google email account did work.

  3. "Now we'll see if President Obama will actually listen to the American people, or if he will continue to behave like a tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood."

    I suppose that was meant as a joke, right?

    Of course, the petition has been taken down.

  5. Hello. I've got a link to your blog posted on my blogroll, and I was wondering what your policy was on reciprocal linking? I would be honored with a link on your blog as well. Cheers!

  6. It's definitely going slow right now....if only someone like Drudge would post a link.

  7. The petition is still active on the website (there are 1,116 signatures right now), but it's not on the primary page for petitions. You can, however, still get there by directly linking to it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if someone at the WH were putting the kibosh on registration/signatures to this particular petition.
