If the consequences of Obamacare for America were not so tragic, Obamacare might be amusing.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Chairman of the DNC and the poster child for not complaining about incompetent opposition, has said the Democrats are all going to run on Obamacare.
What will happen if they do?
Oh please, let them all do that. When they do, Congressional Democrats will officially be on the endangered species list after the fall elections. If they run on Obamacare, an elected Democrat in Congress will be as rare as a patriotic liberal.
Obamacare is a full fledged disaster. The cost of the site, before Obama’s great “fix” is now over $1 billion. Perhaps even funnier, is the idea that you cannot pay for insurance through Obamacare.com or healthcare.gov as it is known.
How does it work? Yes, this is another one of those wonderful features that Nancy Pelosi told us we could only find out about after Congress passed the bill.
Insurance companies estimate what they are owed.
How many of us would like to “estimate” what our employers owe us?
Can you imagine if the government told Boeing to make 100 F-35 Fighters and just estimate what the government owed them? The left would be up in arms. But when you have a wasteful entitlement program, the left loves it.
The five million who have lost insurance coverage will be nothing compared to the between fifty to one hundred million who are expected to lose health insurance next year.
The Democrats will face the wrath of the American voter. Please Debbie, run every Democrat on Obamacare!
The real issue here is crony capitalism at its worst. The Obamacare act, among other things, has a bailout provision for insurance companies. No wonder insurance companies love Obamacare. It is a win-win scenario for them.
Obamacare is destroying much of their competition and if the government is going to guarantee their profits, then what is the downside for the insurance company?
The answer is there is none for the insurance companies. The downside is for the American people.
Obamacare is a crime against the American people. President Grover Cleveland, at his second inauguration said, “Under our scheme of government the waste of public money is a crime against the citizen, and the contempt of our people for economy and frugality in their personal affairs deplorably saps the strength and sturdiness of our national character.”
He was right, and Obamacare is a crime against the citizens of America.
