There is a syndrome common to liberals – they simply cannot do root cause analysis, they never get to the real cause of a problem, they stop when they get to a symptom that supports their lies and opinions. In her now infamous tweet that the evil insurance companies are responsible for you getting your policy cancelled, Rasputin Jarrett is technically right, the insurance policies are getting cancelled due to changes – but those changes were required because they were mandated by regulations written AFTER the law was passed – the companies had no choice.
Policies that are offered by your employer have also changed to comply with the ACA. Mine had things added just like the open market policies…and increased in cost. Premiums started going up with the 2013 enrollment period as companies complied with the regulations that were released in 2012.
It is clear that these regulations were written to do just exactly what they did. Marxists always create collateral damage – and acceptable (to them) level of causalities – the people who get their policies cancelled are just that.
Even the little helpless, brainless free range libs have the same issue, exemplified by the myriad of quotes that say, “I was for Obamacare until I realized that I would be the one paying for it.” Who in the hell did they expect was going to pay for this exactly, one wonders…
Obama and his ilk care nothing for the rights of the individual, only whether what they do appears to advantage the collective. That’s the argument they are starting to make today – sure some people get hurt but OVERALL, everything is just peachy. It is the same Marxist lie that has been told since Crazy Uncle Karl thought it up – but today, even the little petit Marxists of suburbia and academia are feeling the sting. Even they are questioning why it is fair that they are forced off a plan they liked just to pay for something more expensive that they wouldn’t have chosen themselves. They have never felt the sting of collectivism as they have largely been the beneficiary of it.
This also is a perfect illustration of why I think the Current Tax Payment Act of 1943 should be repealed. What focused these neo-Marxists on the problem? The money that they are personally having to take out of their pockets.
Obamacare isn’t going to bend the cost curve in any direction except up, your individual coverage is going to cost more, you cannot keep your current plan or doctor and the uninsured that this was designed to help will not get insurance (unless they go on Medicaid). The only way to back away from the edge of this abyss is not a delay, a tweak or a replacement, it is a total repeal and rollback to where we were before March of 2010. At the hearings this week, the Republicans should hand out a matrix with the promises listed on one side and the evidence that the Democrats lied on the other.
The Democrats celebrate abortion, so aborting Obamacare in its third trimester shouldn’t be an issue.
I have said that Obamacare will go down as the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people and it is proving to be just that and the Democrats own it 100%.
Obama lied and the health insurance industry died.
That fact should never be forgotten.
