Top GOP Republicans are signing up for Obamacare to save money, gain the higher benefits offered, and receive subsidies for their family and staff. So what happened to the idea that Obamacare is too expensive and the country cannot afford it? Or is this a clear example of the politicians working both sides of an issue and having no principles to speak of? Too often whatever suits them comes before any principle. In this case, the cost of healthcare is now less expensive and thus serves them, their family and staff well.
This type of self-serving leadership is what has placed this country in the turmoil that exists today. After wasting huge amounts of money and time in an attempt to repeal Affordable Care Act (forty-eight times!), for politicians to sign up now and still oppose the law shows a serious flaw in character and principle. The American people deserve better from their elected officials. Perhaps an apology is due to the American people for all the rhetoric and confusion, for making Obamacare the main issue while the country has been operating without a balance budget, for the small business owner struggling to survive because of the lack of banks will to lend to small businesses while big businesses surge in record profits.
If Congress’ focus was on the budget and lending to small business owners, they would be able to afford to pay for healthcare, and Obamacare subsidies may not have been an issue. Obamacare appears to benefit everyone—both Republicans and Democrats, both those opposed and those in favor. Let’s not listen to what the politicians say—let’s instead follow their actions. Clearly their actions speak louder than any words they can say about Obamacare now that they have signed up.
