Back in 2009 and 2010 when the conservative side of America was warning [ loudly ] about what a bad idea it was to let the US government get involved in delivering healthcare, we couldn’t have imagined just HOW BAD it would all be once the damned and ill-fated Affordable Healthcare Act finally rolled out.
More than 50 times in speeches across the nation President Obama faced the American citizenry and promised them:
“If you like your plan – you can keep your plan.”
It’s not just the lie itself that Barack Obama told, repeatedly, to the American people during 2009 and 2010 when this legislation was all being bullied through Congress without a single GOP vote of support – it’s the sheer magnitude and scale upon which this sitting president lied to the American people about Obamacare.
It strains credulity to look at it all, and it has ruined what ever small shreds of credibility the Obama presidency ever had. Pause to consider: If the US government with all it’s might, resources, and mighty printing presses could not effectively build a website to deliver the shopping options for Obamacare – why in the hell would we EVER believe that the FED could administer the Healthcare program itself – without the same level of bungling, bumbling, finger pointing and endless lame ass excuses for why it doesn’t work???
Further: If the Obama administration has now decided to hurl a final “Hail Mary” pass and allow people with pre-existing plans to keep those plans for another year, and if the alternative Obamacare plan offers less coverage at a higher rate, as many news outlets are now reporting – then Obamacare WAS NEVER NEEDED IN THE FIRST DAMN PLACE, and this has all been for NAUGHT.
This law is fast becoming the most preposterous waste of American taxpayer money and the federal government‘s time, talent, resources and energy that I have seen in my lifetime. It ranks right up there with the Iraq War – a sheer colossus of waste.
