How's your memory holding up? Can you remember three years ago, those town hall meetings where folks were rising up in anger and declaring war against Obamacare? Nancy Pelosi called those folks "wing nuts". Harry Reid called them "domestic terrorists." Barack Hussein Obama called them "right wing radicals." Well, now America is learning that these protesters seemed to be the only ones who weren't asleep when Obamacare was shoved down their throats.
The media is having a field day trumpeting this Gruber fellow, from MIT or somewhere, who wrote the Obamacare bill and, ever since, has been bragging about how he got it passed over the heads of "stupid Americans." Seems Gruber took the $400,000 dollars that Obama paid him, then went out on the lecture circuit talking about how he pulled it all off; how he filled the bill with such gobbledygook that no one would understand it, not even the legislators who passed it. It was, as Nancy said, "something we needed to pass in order to see what's in it".
One thing that was clearly not in it was that "if you like your doctor you can keep him, and if you like your health plan you can keep it." Also, not obvious in it was Obamacare's basic premise; that working Americans would pay higher premiums to subsidize those who don't or won't work. Nor did anyone point out that, even in the most optimistic conditions, the taxpayer would be paying for Obamacare deficits for years to come. So Americans got "double taxed....they got taxed on those higher premiums and they got taxed again, money coming out of the general fund to make up the $200 billion in program deficits.
Try to remember that Obama's pleading before the Supreme Court nearly did them in until they changed their wording and called Obamacare a tax...since the feds can tax all they want Barry finally got Supreme Court approval. But, it seems nearly all of America was asleep as the Congressional Budget Office estimates projected Obamacare to cost an additional $5 trillion dollars over the next decade. Yeah, folks, that's a tax...a tax "stupid America" fell for hook, line, and sinker.
So before you even consider how many doctors and private hospitals have opted out of participating in Obamacare, before you even contemplate Obama's death panel, yet to kick in, before you ever consider that companies will continue not to hire additional employees because of the high costs of Obamacare (the mandates won't kick in until January 15), and before you even consider having to battle still another government bureaucracy that comes between you and your doctor, you learn that the whole damn thing was one big ruse inflicted on the American people. One big Ponzi scheme that is hell bent on destroying the America economy.
So, now no one's happy. The elderly aren't happy that Obama robbed $500 billion from taxes they paid into Medicare to pay the medical premiums for deadbeats, the docs and hospitals aren't happy, the medical device makers aren't happy, working America is not happy because Barry promised them a 25% decrease in their premiums...and now they are seeing their premiums soar, and now the Democrats are unhappy because they lost 9 Senators in the last election!
But Barry's happy. Barry's always happy. He's so damn happy he just might go out and play a round of golf, then come home and sit with Michelle and the girls and plan their $7 million dollar Christmas vacation in Hawaii!
But America would be far happier today if they had just listened to the few that were awake three years ago when this whole mess started. Instead, most of America was guzzling the Kool Aid, believing The Anointed One was doing something else great for them. Wing Nuts, indeed.
