This is it. Reality has set in. It is time to defund Obama Care. The clock is running out. President Obama is still lying to the American public that all is well with Obama Care. That could be furthest from the truth. I don’t have to write a thesis here to prove that Obama Care is not what it is cut out to be. I would start as my first concern is why are they taking away one of the best health plans in the world that people come from other countries to use it. Why is Obama who says he is so concerned about family health and well being allowing a health care system where when you reach a certain age, lets say 70 as an example and you need a hip replacement you will be considered non productive and younger people will be treated before your mother, father, aunts, uncles, yourself, and what have you. This is what Sarah Palin has labeled death panels, and she has not been proven wrong. You even have presidential candidate Howard Dean who is also a physician declare Sarah Palin correct. It is mind bungling just this part of Obama Care all by itself is not troublesome to some of its supporters.
The Congressional Budget Office(CBO) which is non partisan has come out with their latest estimates on Obama Care, provides a more accurate cost projection, finally encompassing 10 years of full spending. The 11-year estimate places spending on these provisions at $1.85 trillion from 2013 to 2023. Keep in mind whenever there is a new projection it has continuously gone up, starting from about $980 million in its earlier projections.
Take into consideration now that Obama Care was to be fed by the young, which was to be about a $8 a month penalty for not taking it. Young people do not think much about health insurance, especially if they are still single with the only responsibility is themselves. So is this young person going to pay the fine, or is he going to sign up for a $468 dollar a month policy? You tell me.
If you are an employer employing 50 or more people you have to provide insurance to full time employees. This has started already, I’m sure you have read about it or seen it on TV, employers are cutting full timers to part-timers so as not to have to provide health care. Before you start yelling greed do some homework and see how much an employer would have to pay. Instead of employers thinking of expansions which would have hired more people now they have to think of survival. You people that always have your hand out you better put your hand down because you will be lucky to have a job.
Obama’s biggest shock is probably from the unions who were supporting Obama Care to begin with. Now they are yelling foul. Here is a letter from the major unions to Senator Harry Reid and the Senate: When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class. This is in relation to the above paragraph as to how employers will be handling Obama Care.
This is just a small example as to how Obama Care will destroy the US economy or make it stagnant at the least. You have Obama who is not even considering making the adjustments that the majority of Americans are asking for. If this doesn’t prove that Obama is dead set to destroy the American economy, nothing will.
