And Ted Cruz, one of the few politicians who is actually trying to save us from this monstrosity is on the Senate Floor at the time of this writing railing against the evils of the “Affordable Care Act.” Because it’s not “affordable” and it limits the amount of “care” that only the plebians in society are subjected to in the “act.”
Our RULERS in Washington are either exempt from its dictates or are subsidized in
paying for its exorbitant costs.
And who wants this law anyway?
I’ve read that even the unions don’t want it. I can’t find one recent opinion poll that shows that most Americans are in favor of it. Corporations are throwing families off healthcare plans or are getting rid of them all together. Most of the only new jobs being created are part-time and existing ones are being cut to less than 30 hours a week in order to avoid ObamaCare. Families are seeing their health insurance premiums double, triple or even quadruple in some cases.
So why does the “Political Class” in Washington continue to shove this
law down our throats?
The simple answer is their overwhelming egos won’t allow them to admit they’re wrong.
They’re more interested in protecting the President’s signature legislation than doing what’s right and repealing this “trainwreck” as Democrat senator Max Baucus so eloquently refers to it.
What I don’t understand is why the President didn’t just expand Medicare and Medicaid to cover the poor and uninsured and leave the private insurance industry alone?
The main error I make in postulating that opinion is that a course of action like that would involve a “common sense” approach and wouldn’t fit in the grandiose and socialist vision of “Dear Leader.”
There is a silver lining to this mess that cynics can embrace.
And that’s that the “Nationalization” of the healthcare industry – about one seventh of
the US Economy – will lead us even faster into full fledged economic collapse. And that’s probably the only thing that may restore freedom to this, once, Great Nation.
So the only hope we plebians have is that the Beast/DC goes bankrupt a la how the Soviet Union and Moscow did in the 1980s. The former Soviet Republics are not necessarily bastions of freedom and liberty, but they are doing a lot better economically since the collapse of centralized, communist rule.
One can only hope that when DC falls the states – the “red” ones especially – will economically flourish and freedom will return, after the central government folds.
