I have a chapter in my book, “Ramblings of a Right Wing Bible Thumping White Guy’ called. “Why do they have to lie to win?” I always feel that if the issue or product you have is true and good then it will stand on its own, don’t lie about it.
Democrats are talking about how bad this new healthcare plan is and that 24+ million people will lose insurance. And, of course, the end of humankind as we know it will come along shortly thereafter!
Democrats now blame Republicans for the failure of Obamacare. It seems that all the misinformation and fear mongering by Republicans has caused many insurance companies to lose millions of dollars and ultimately pull out of the program. Hold up a minute.
Maybe it’s all the failed promises and misinformation by Obama and his gang about Obamacare. Remember, they banked on the fact that young people would sign up for this in large numbers, not because it was good for them but because they would be penalized for not signing up. Dems thought that was a good thing!
Then there was the 20 million who would sign up in the first 2 years. It too was a “you can keep your doctor” promise that fell flat. You see, the 19 million they claimed ran to Obamacare because it was so great never really happened unless you use DemoMath.
Over 6 million policies that were being offered by small businesses had to be canceled because they didn’t meet Obamacare requirements, like not offering birth control for men and other CRAZY unnecessary benefits! Those people had to go to the exchanges to sign up. The Obama administration took credit for these “new” signups under Obamacare. But they would not take responsibility for the higher monthly premiums, deductibles, and co-pays that came with the new “affordable” care act.
Some people even found that their prescription copays tripled! Remember, the secret word is “affordable”! I say secret because no one yet has found the affordable version.
Another 11 million people have been “forced” to go through an exchange to get on “Medicare,” a program that was supposed to be for Americans over 65 who couldn’t afford basic doctor visits, medications, and healthcare.
