Yesterday, Obama took a few minutes away from the royal vacation to give us the ‘straight’ scoop about ObamaCare, after exempting all members of Congress and illegally delaying the implementation of the employer mandate. (“Constitution? We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution!”)
He said the law is being enacted as planned, nothing to fear, Congress is on board, the states are on board, everybody is thrilled with the provisions of the new law, and only a few Republicans are trying to derail it.
Well, those Republicans are mean, that’s why. Obama actually said Republicans care only about their own political fortunes. By trying to defund ObamaCare, Republicans show they don’t care about recovery, they don’t care about helping families achieve security, says Obama. They only care about playing politics, something foreign to Barry the Beneficent.
The 43%, i.e., low information voters (translation: morons) actually continue to believe this low class president when he spews this bilge. It is the never-ending Obama campaign, securing his place as the most destructive and divisive individual ever to hold the office. As others have said, he does not govern, he campaigns, and that usually distills down to demonizing Republicans, period.
The truth is ObamaCare is a nightmare from A-Z. First, it is wildly expensive, promising to accelerate economic collapse. It is now to the point when Obama says something, to get at the truth, simply believe the opposite.
Non-partisan analysts with the Congressional Budget Office contradict administration cost estimates. Obama said the program would cost about $900 billion over ten years. The CBO says the true cost will be more than twice that amount. Others say the real figure is triple that amount. The point was made in 2009. Barry ignored it, and moved ahead, against majority sentiment, opposition that remains to this day.
America is already bankrupt. Soon, we will not be able to pay our bills. The dollar is going to collapse. Global depression looms. Only an insane person promotes running up trillions more in debt; either an insane person, or one intentionally working to collapse the U.S. economy.
One could go on and on about the paltry healthcare benefits of this precursor to complete government takeover. What do the people get for an initial investment of about $2 trillion? We still don’t really know. Obama insists a bunch of uninsured people need subsidies for abortion pills and coverage for pre-existing conditions. So we destroy our country and violate taxpayers’ conscience to cater to a small group who already have healthcare and contraception? Wow. And this crowning achievement: keeping young adults on parents’ coverage until age 26! Another achievement! The feds fleecing the folks to encourage dependency!
Don’t miss the big picture, the end game. Sen. Reid recently affirmed Sen. Hatch’s accusation: ObamaCare is only stepping stone to complete government takeover.
Such a takeover is designed to destroy the Constitution and enslave every man, woman and child in America. Even in his tinkering with ObamaCare, the president has violated the Constitution by establishing law and amending law, unilaterally.
We could argue against a bureaucrat making treatment decisions and physicians denied the freedom to order needed tests to accurately diagnose.
We could point out prominent Democrats, including those who wrote the law, are running for cover, claiming the law is a disaster.
By all means, ignore the credible reports showing costs are increasing, access is shrinking and quality of care is declining.
We might even tell you how employers and unions decry the devastating effect ObamaCare is having on economic recovery and job creation.
But hey, ignore the truth, the facts, the evidence and the warnings of catastrophe. Believe Obama and enjoy your coverage, that is, until your parents kick you out when they lose their house.
And when total collapse occurs, join Barry in blaming Republicans for shutting down the entire country.
