Mr. Obama took his failed Obamacare rollout and turned it into an attack on the insurance companies and Republicans. He took no responsibility for the mess. He doesn’t care if it’s a mess. All that matters is the ultimate goal.
In the following video compilation of soundbites from his speech of October 30th, you will see that the bystander-in-chief blames the insurance companies and Republicans for the healthcare.gov problems. He takes no responsibility himself.
He does take responsibility for the site getting fixed. God only knows how much that will cost taxpayers now that he has google and apple involved. Word has it that Sebelius is moving money around to pay for the repairs.
Mr. Obama claimed that the evil insurance companies were responsible for people who were grandfathered-in getting kicked off their plans but the truth came out during Dr. Cassidy’s questioning of Secretary Sebelius during the hearings:
Mr. Obama repeatedly said that if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. That is not true and was never true. The Sentinel reported that more than two years ago when we read the bill. It has been reported elsewhere but people chose not to believe it.
Mr. Obama always knew it wasn’t true but it was a means to an end. We don’t know what is best for us. We have to be forced to accept what he thinks is best for us through deception.
In 2010, Obama officials said that 93 million Americans will be unable to keep their healthcare plan. In an obscure report buried in a June 2010 edition of the Federal Register, administration officials predicted massive disruption of the private insurance market. It is not only the individual market that would see cancelations, it’s the employer-sponsored market as well:
“The Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013.” “The Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013,”
They knew it all along. They were expecting this.
We have only just begun to see people being dropped. Once the employer mandate kicks in, things will get much worse and the 93 million number will prove to be a conservative estimate.
And it’s free! Imagine if it wasn’t free!?!
The entire purpose of this debacle is to force us into single payer:
Do you remember when Ronald Reagan warned us about this?
We will all soon be on Medicaid, the worst healthcare program in the country, a program which is about to get worse as more and more people sign up for it. Half the country will pay for the other half’s every health need according to the dictates of an all-powerful government. Every scintilla of data about your health will be available to the government and will be posted on the Internet.
