I don’t think there is anyone out there that can actually, and factually argue that Obamacare has been nothing more than a boondoggle. Well, it has IF you believe what you were told the reason behind having it in the first place was…which was to make sure that all of those millions of poor, under-paid, unnourished, and trod upon souls that the Republicans have stepped on the backs of to get to the 1% for years actually had health insurance so they could see a doctor! If that was true, Obamacare has been a giant failure…worse than what it really has been. And the reason for that is simple.
We’ve spent over $3 TRILLION on Obamacare so far in 6 years, and guess what? You could have taken every single poor, under-paid, unnourished, and trod upon soul and given them the very best healthcare insurance available for the rest of their life and never, EVER have spent anything near $3 TRILLION! So, when you hear Bobo Obama, or Hillary Clinton, or Bernie Sanders, or Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid spout off about how they’ve saved the poor and given them healthcare insurance, remind yourself that you know better. If they really cared about the poor, they would have kept the former healthcare system in place and made sure that they spent the money on the 3 million people (that is the TRUE number of uninsured who have become insured through Obamacare) that didn’t have healthcare by giving them the best policy available.
So, why the push for Obamacare in the first place? Do you remember the famous movie line, “Show me the money!”? That’s why. Democrats are happiest when they control the purse strings. And in healthcare, it’s 16% of all purse strings. Oh, it’s definitely a redistribution of wealth going on, but it’s not what they like to tout. They aren’t taking it from the 1% and giving it to the lowest of the low. They are taking it from the Middle Class and giving it to the Lowest Class. Why do I know that? Because the 1%’ers out there are always going to have the highest quality healthcare. And they are always going to pay for it regardless what it costs. It’s the Middle Class that has gotten screwed in Obamacare, because there just isn’t enough money in the top 1% to pay for everybody at the bottom.
Next up on the hit parade is the fact that Obamacare was only supposed to be a place holder. It wasn’t supposed to be a permanent “fix” to healthcare. It was a step-down to socialized medicine through a single-payer (i.e.: government) form of insurance. When all of the insurance companies out there started doing exactly what they are doing now (pulling out of Obamacare exchanges) then the government HAS to step in and offer insurance to those folks. And pretty soon, it will declare that everyone has to have the same insurance because it’s separating the world in to the haves and have-nots, and that’s not fair. So, it’s only right that these poor folks have their constitutional right of getting free healthcare insurance, just like it’s a constitutional right in their mind that every kid has the ability to go to college. And as Judge Smails said to Danny in the movie “Caddyshack”, “Well, the world needs ditch diggers too!” And he was right.
No, things are never done in one simple step with the Democrats. There is ALWAYS a progression. Obamacare is just the latest example of that. But given their way, it won’t be the last step!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
