Remember the old saying, “Be careful what you wish for because it may come back to bite you in the ass?” It turns out that the political idiots on the left that lied about the virtues of Obamacare were the ones getting the big kickbacks while most Americans knew they would eventually be the ones getting bitten in the ass.
In December of 2009, an email was sent from Obama adviser Jim Messina to AARP representative Nancy LeaMond congratulating her company for jumping on board with the newly crafted Obamacare bill. The email went on to say the White House wanted to use AARP’s membership database to robo call Nebraska senator Ben Nelson to seal the final vote for the unpopular bill. Senator Nelson would vote for Obamacare only after he was promised a kickback. At the time this email was sent out, 59% of Americans were against the president’s bill. Even worse, by a margin to 14 to 1 AARP’s own members disapproved of the bill. Why would AARP support a highly disliked bill such as Obamacare? Money. It turns out AARP would throw its 37 million members under the bus for a deal that would make the company one billion dollars.
Today, AARP’s healthcare insurer United Healthcare told investors that because of Obamacare’s deteriorating side effects on the industry it ultimately plans to leave the Obamacare exchanges all together after 2016. When asked if the nation’s largest health insurance company could go on and carry health insurance policies past 2016 a company spokesman said, “No.”
When United Health and other health insurance companies are forced to leave the marketplace due to the high costs of Obamacare, this will pressure the remaining insurance companies to pick-up the slack. Those remaining companies will have to take on more high-risk enrollees prompting them to raise rates or exit the market place altogether. You can blame AARP, president Obama and the democrat party for passing their socialist healthcare plan in 2009. They have finally proven that healthcare coverage mandated by the federal government at the cost of 2.7 trillion dollars is a gigantic utopian disaster that was destined to fail.
It turns out the only people who wished for the passage of Obamacare were the socialist democrat politicians and their crony businesse partners in Washington, D.C… Sadly, the majority of Americans never wished for the passage of Obamacare, because they instinctively understood that in the end they would be the ones who would get bitten in the ass by it. How right they were.
