If Obamacare is not big government corruption, then what is?

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

There is sputtering from the far left that people are too hard on Obama. There is a grain of truth in this complaint, but it has to be examined with a wide-angle lens. In order to put the allegation in proper perspective we need to go back in time a little.

If you recall when George Bush was president there was a never-ending donkey chorus of screams regarding his bungling incompetence. There were so many in the screaming far left choir, they became known as the "Bush bashers.". They never stopped barking. If some dog crapped in their yard it was Bush's fault. If it rained on their picnic, it was Bush's fault. If their hemorrhoids acted up, it was Bush 'so fault. Guess what? Bush left office.

For the first five years of Obama's presidency, it is still Bush's fault. So when people like Bernadette Loesch and others say that the right is picking on Obama over zealously, I would suggest to you they are merely trying to balance the scale of attacks leveled unendingly at George Bush and at a high decibel level. Not only during Bush's eight years in office, but during Obama's five years in office.

I am sure people reading this, except for Bernadette and few other far left snow flakes, are saying, "This guy has it dead right." With scale balancing in mind.

There is not enough lipstick at Revlon, to make the oinker Obamacare is, anything other than the pork chop it is. The average American isn't stupid, they know when someone is playing them for a sucker. Obama has consumed the entire energy and conversation of the nation for five years with Obamacare at a very deep cost to the economy. Democrats even admitted it, they had not read the legislation. How could they? It was thousands of pages of legal gibberish still being debated in the courts to this day.

Nancy Pelosi even joked we would know what was in it after we opened the box. Some joke. This nation is discovering all to unhappily what is in the box. Damn few people like it. Anyone can drag out an illustration of someone who benefited. I can produce 10 that have been harmed for every one of them. It takes no Einstein to see that is a poor deal. Obamacare has been discovered to be exactly the crap legislation it was always said to be.

The overwhelming majority of Americas still strongly oppose it. Seventy-five percent of people eligible for subsidies are refusing to sign up. That single fact alone proves the incredible failure of the plan. When asked why, they say the costs are still too high. They are right. The premium costs are going up double digits next year if they think the current cost is high. Wasn't the reason for Obamacare to stop such increases? The vast majority of people are being forced into Medicaid where ever fewer doctors treat those patients and every shred of evidence proves people without any insurance live longer than Medicaid patients. Obamacare patients are already driving up, not down, emergency room demand in many cities because no doctors will treat them. We have 19 of the best cancer hospitals in the world. Fifteen of the 19 will not see Obamacare patients.

Millions have had their insurance canceled, millions more face huge increases in their out-of-pocket deductibles and ultra narrow networks. You tell me how Obamacare improved healt hcare for Americans given that back drop of facts. By the way, Obama has agreed to bail out every insurer if they lose one dollar. If that is not big government corruption, what the hell is?
