The word of the day for snowflakes everywhere is “mean”. The new Republican Healthcare bill making its way through the Senate is “mean”. The Republican House bill that was passed a while back is “mean”. The reason? Dems are worried that the GOP is going to tank their healthcare bill…which they don’t seem to think is mean. Let me respond to that.
The Democrats lied and cheated in order to get their healthcare bill through congress seven years ago. Do you remember all the cater walling and cajoling they did with their own members just to get their vote? If you were a member of either body of congress, and you wanted something…ANYTHING…all you had to do is say you weren’t going to vote for Obamacare until you got it, and VOILA! You got it.
Do you remember the president of the United States telling everybody repeatedly that “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”? and “If you like your healthcare plan you can keep your healthcare plan”? Did he lie when he told you that? Of course he did. He knew damn well that you were going to lose your healthcare plan AND your doctor.
Did the Democrats know back then that there would come a time when insurance companies would pull out leaving states with one or in a lot of cases no insurance options? Did they know back then when they passed this monstrosity that the healthcare bill they were passing would go bankrupt in just seven years? Yes…they did.
So why did they do it in the first place?
Because Obamacare was a placeholder. Much like the Republican plan is a placeholder today. The GOP can’t repeal Obamacare because they don’t have 60 votes in the Senate. And there is no way any Democrat in the world is going to vote for the GOP plan. They would be committing political suicide. The Dems wanted Obamacare to fail so they could switch over to a single payer healthcare system (it’s called Socialized Medicine), and finish the job. Much like what the GOP is trying to do with the current bill. Pass something that gets rid of the bad parts of Obamacare, which is most, and then win eight seats in the Senate next year to be able to finish the job.
The other thing that bothers me is the language the snowflakes use. Obama himself calls the whole thing “mean” because if you plan on getting old, sick, or infirmed, you’re going to be out of luck. He isn’t taking any of the blame for HIS plan that is dying on the vine because no one wants it, insurance companies are bailing on it, and it’s going broke faster than my Uncle Luke in Vegas. That, in a nutshell is partisan, is a lie, and isn’t responsible. The Dems passed what we have and it’s dying. They need to stand up and take credit for their terrible judgement, and level with the American people.
I’m not saying the Republicans have the answer. Actually the answer is to get government out of the picture, and go back to what we had. We don’t need to have some behemoth governmental giant trying to tell us what we can and can’t get fixed with our health. That’s the problem the VA has right now…how’s that working out for the veterans in this country? But the deal is, when business has a handle on things, you let business fix what’s wrong with it, or people will stop doing business with them. If you let government handle something business should be handling you ALWAYS end up with something that costs way too much, delivers way too little, and is a terrible idea. It happens that way every single time it’s tried…and that’s just another reason liberalism doesn’t work!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
