In my last blog I went through a progressive’s assessment of Obama care and laid out the logic that they would use to attack the credibility of 7 million enrollees had Republicans been the ones so foolishly passed Obamacare. In this blog want to take another angle and argue that perhaps the number should be even larger and in fact include the entire population of the United States. The number should really be 315 million Americans hurt or who will be hurt by Obamacare. Let’s walk down the path of how we get there.
First off are Americans who lost their insurance (some while they were receiving chemotherapy) or who will lose their insurance or have it dramatically altered as a result of the “Affordable” Care Act, or have their rates increased. Next we have Americans who were promised by the president and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats who passed this bill that if they liked their doctor they could keep their doctor. Others will be impacted because they can no longer go to the hospital of their choice. A much larger number will be Americans who don’t get the quality treatment that they would have received had Obama care not been passed.
I encourage you to watch this attached video of noted author Trevor Loudon speaking on the implications of government run healthcare in his country of New Zealand. All Americans should heed his warning. Click Here!
In many cases this quality treatment will result in, as Pres. Obama said, telling someone who otherwise could’ve been helped that it’s too expensive and they should just take a pain pill. This is the dreaded “death panel” aspect of Obama care were government bureaucrats will decide what’s best for you, your spouse, your children, and your grandchildren. Every American will be hurt by the loss of liberty, and freedom of choice to make their own health decisions.
If the law somehow managed to avoid hurting every American by now, we need to account for the American taxpayer. This monstrosity of a law consumes 1/5 of the US economy and drains $200 billion per year out of our pockets. It’s likely that the costs will be far more. Sooner, rather than later, America’s enormous debt burden roosters, amplified by this unaffordable program, will come home to roost.
Yes, the real number is 315 Million. Stop talking about 7 Million, it’s a sham, and plays into the progressive strategy. Change the debate and talk about those hurt or who are going to be hurt by Obamacare. Force the discussion beyond the superficial to the real measures of failure.
