Politics has become so corrupt that any accountability at all is neither sought nor expected. When did Americans surrender their expectation of leadership? Today in 2016 it is understood that politicians lie, cheat and steal. So, much so, that Hillary Clinton is considered a viable candidate for President of the United States.
To that fact lets look at the diabolical obamacare passed off as "getting health insurance to millions who didn't have it before." The truth is so far removed from the political promise of obama that liberals are digging through the manure to find even a modicum of success.
obama in 2009 swore up and down that exchanges would offer those newly insured Americans more quality "choices" and "affordability" and force down health insurance rates overall.
Since his lips were moving he was unable to stop lying so he went on to promise that the rest of us that health care premiums would fall by $2,500 for a family of four. Instead, they've risen by over $4,800.
New data released this week shows that Obamacare premiums will skyrocket in excesses of 25 percent or more across the country for benchmark plans in 2017. Many hard working, lower middle class Americans will be forced to forfeit plans that currently meet their needs. With the crushing rate hikes it is more likely that they will lose their government mandated insurance completely. The caveat being that if they lose their insurance due to it becoming an onerous financial burden they will then be hit with a devastating tax fine.
In five states—Alaska, Alabama, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Wyoming—there will be only one insurance company providing plans in 2017.
The highly indictable Hillary Clinton is arguing that to save obamacare , Americans need a public option, which in a nut shell is yet another government-run insurance program.
The Democrats obviously slept through political science in college because governments do not have the capability to prop up contrived marketplaces. The former U.S.S.R. should have been a huge clue to that fact. Even allowing insurance companies to write their own policy was of little use. There is a reason why Capitalism works, a free-market economy produces competition and competition forces companies to think, act, and produce the best possible product at the best possible price. No matter how many Democrats fudge health insurance numbers and create fake line charts the market is not fooled, neither are Americans who no longer have jobs or health coverage
obama strutted around on stage like a preening cock crowing about his about his signature achievement this past week. As far removed from reality as he is obama was forced to concede that six years after passage, Obamacare, is still experiencing growing pains. The truth of it, is that obama's name sake legislation is on life support. obamacare is draining the country and robbing Americans who can least afford to be taken by a snake oil sales man from Kenya.
All of this is the direct result of voting for a freshmen senator from Kenya with no experience, whose claim to fame were the platitudes...Hope/Change.
