They Betrayed Us!

Turns out the United States is no different than any other socialist minded country. Mark this day as the day that free-market healthcare ultimately died in the United States of America. On July 25th, 2017 the Republican senate voted to keep the failed idea of government run healthcare. The Republican Party once promised its voters that a vote for them in 2012, 2014 and 2016 meant a full repeal of Obamacare. It turns out the republicans weren’t for repeal after all. They betrayed us!

After years of lying to every American on the issue of undoing Obamacare, the republican house, senate and president are poised to keep the disaster named Obamacare in place after all. Before Obamacare was passed in 2010, president Obama and the democrats repeatedly said, “if you like your plan and your doctor, you can keep your plan and your doctor.” That ridiculous promise turned out to be the lie of the year in 2103.

With today’s vote in the senate we can now say for certain the lie of the decade was the promise republicans made year after year to help get a majority of them elected. That lie was, “if you elect us we will repeal Obamacare!” On this sad day in American history, the feckless republicans voted on blocking a full repeal of Obamacare in the United States senate. Proving that republicans never intended on repealing the law in the first place. The republican con artists who ran on the promise of repealing Obamacare lied to every single American. They need to be thrown out of office. Why? They betrayed us!

Be Careful What You Wish For?

imageRemember 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.
