Default White House Petition

Anybody else hear this?
The White House has changed how the petition process goes. It used to be you needed 25,000 votes for the gov. to look into your petition.
I heard that now you need 100,000 votes and it needs to reach the goal of 100,000 within 30 days for the gov to look into the petition.
I have not seen anything on the site about a petition against Obamacare.
With something as unwanted as the ACA you would think that it would be petition after petition to defund or repeal it.
Do ya think this administration is manipulating the site to squash what the people want to petition?

Kinda like they did will bills at the State level? If they attach money to it, it can't go before the people. I feel like I have heard something about changing the way a recall is done in Michigan lately. They are all crooks who are only in it for themselves.

Look at the Emergency Manager Law. Shot down by the voters? No problem, pass it again with the State paying the salary, and the people can't petition for another vote.

Do you think it matters? Even me, and about the closest think to an Obama supporter here had figured that those petitions to really be just a ploy to try to convince people that they actually care about what the average person thinks.

Politicians #1 priority is getting re-elected.

#2 priority is covering up the scandals.
