If you haven't already figured it out yet the American people were lied to by their president. If you like your healthcare and doctor you can keep them. We've been had. A lie made by the leader of the free world who knew that his Affordable Health Care (Obamacare) would cause millions to lose their healthcare. The deception is more cunning than people realize. Create a healthcare law that strips people of their current healthcare, based on a set of minimum standards, which forces them to sign up for Obamacare at a much higher premium. Those premiums subsidize the premiums of those who cannot afford to pay for their own healthcare. How is that for wealth distribution? Cancel old policies, force new policies at higher cost to cover everyone else. The wealthy don't care because they belong to groups that pay a yearly fee to doctors who don't accept healthcare. If something major happens they have the money. The poor don't care because it's free. So who pays the cost? The middle class. The same middle class that Obama talks about in all his speeches and lectures. The same middle class that is being eaten away by higher taxes, gas bills, and groceries. We've been had. It's a tax disguised as healthcare. Wealth distribution at its very finest. Socialists unite.
The new system can't even get a website operational. Can you imagine what filing a claim will be like? How long will you sit in hospital waiting room before they can approve a procedure or even find you in the computer system. Sorry Mrs. Jones your husband passed away because we couldn't treat him because our computer system froze. This is the same government that is tracking every phone call, email, web search, driving habits, and God knows what else, but can't seem to find a way to have people apply for healthcare. The same government that flies drones around the world and can pinpoint a terrorist sitting in a grass hut soon to meet Allah. The same government that spies on our allies. The same government that has spent us into $17 trillion dollars in debt. Pelosi rages that they have actually dropped the deficit. I guess she was never present in math class. Maybe she's subtracting $17 trillion from $10 trillion? Someone help her understand basic mathematics. This makes Big Brother look like a choir boy.
What I want to know is where is the press? Where are they? If Bush were to lie so vagrantly to the American people the media would be barking like dogs in kennel full of cats. The noise would be so loud it would shake the globe. Clinton lied about having sex with an intern and the media frothed at the mouth. I don't think most of us cared what he did with a cigar over a glass of port. At least I didn't. The cost was zero other than congress wasting their time with impeachment. The press now seems afraid of Obama. Why? They are supposed to be our eyes and ears on the government. Where are they?
And that's my rant for the week.
