Before Obamacare became the law of the land, many knew it was a disaster in the making. Those who realized what Obamacare was all about tried to warn people. Unfortunately, the mainstream media worked hand-in-hand with Obama and the Dems, so in many instances the truth was not allowed out. A rosy picture of "health care for all" was promoted, with little attention to the hidden nefarious details.
Although, to be honest, many people didn't want to listen to the truth. They didn't want to listen to their elected representatives (Republican and conservative) and their warnings. They didn't want to listen to those who said that said health insurance costs would skyrocket. They didn't want to listen to those who said quality health coverage would disappear. They didn't want to listen when people said access to doctors would diminish, not increase. They didn't want to listen about increased wait times to see a doctor. They didn't want to listen when people said the "Affordable Care Act" was anything but. They didn't want to listen when people said jobs would be lost. They didn't want to listen when people said businesses would suffer.
Nope. Instead they listened to a lying president. Barack Obama lied - over and over - to get Obamacare passed. Obama told Americans that if you liked your health care insurance, you could keep it. Obama told Americans that if you liked your doctor, you could keep your doctor. Anyone remember Nancy Pelosi telling Americans that Obamacare would CREATE jobs??? 400,000 jobs almost immediately - and four million jobs over time!!! Witness the spectacle for yourself...
Anyone remember Obama saying the mandate to have to buy insurance wasn't a "tax" - until the Supreme Court, led by a spineless Chief Justice - declared the madate was indeed a tax??? Remember Obama saying the average family could see a savings up to $2500.00 a year for their health insurance??? Boldface lies designed to sneak this vile law through - a law designed with the sole intent to set America on track for a government take over of the entire health care system. A law with very little to do with actual health care, but a lot to do with growing our already bloated federal government and giving a few more power over the lives of Americans.
Now we are paying the price. The truth about what Obamacare is all about is coming out. Slowly but surely. And each passing day seems to bring more bad and upsetting news. Millions have LOST their health insurance. Millions have seen their working hours cut - in order for businesses to remain open and stay profitable. And access to your doctor? Don't count on it. Jobs and those who work ARE being hurt. People's wallets are taking a huge hit. People ARE losing health insurance. Need the Obamacare website even be mentioned? a hackers dream come true...a mess....not to mention the inflated cost due to the ineptitude of all those involved with creating it! Oh yeah, but we are still waiting for someone to be held "accountable." (A favorite buzz word of Obama - trust me, it's meaningless. He just likes to say it. And when he adds "we'll get to the bottom of this" you really know nothing will happen!)
Anyhow, now comes yet another "hidden" extra to this designed monstrosity. Under the headline: "Health care law to shrink labor force" from the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel (2/5/14) comes the following: the Congressional Budget Office predicts that the Affordable Care Act will shrink the workforce by the equivalent of more than 2 million full-time positions.
Over two million more people losing full-time work - OR - CHOOSING to go to part time in order to have the government (ala "taxpayers") remain on the hook for the cost of their astronomically expensive health care insurance!!!
Isn't it kind of "unhealthy" to NOT have a job? To worry from day-to-day about where that next paycheck is coming from (oh, that's right, unemployment checks come for a few years now, but eventually even they run out!!! See, Dems love to pay people NOT to work! It makes people reliant upon the government, which in turn assures votes for the party giving the handouts...). Isn't it unhealthy to sit around the house, frustrated at the inability to find work? Having one's self-esteem crushed on a daily basis? Feeling useless? Sitting on the couch, watching TV and eating Cheetohs? Drinking, drugging, and/or smoking to cope? (Hey, but pot is legal in some states now! I tell ya, Barry & Co. are courting those stoner votes! They're counting on 'em.) How healthy IS that? Isn't this all kind of ironic?
Well, at least a lot of Americans will now have free time to participate in Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!!!" campaign!!! Too funny...
It gets even more ridiculous
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said the Congressional Budget Office report that shows Obamacare will make the labor force lose 2.3 million full-time workers by 2021 is positive because it lets Americans be “free agents.”
“We have the CBO report, which rightfully says, that people shouldn’t have job lock. If they — we live in a country where there should be free agency. People can do what they want,” Reid told reporters outside of a policy luncheon. “And what they’re saying here is — and the fact checkers have already done this — the Republicans talk about losing millions of jobs simply isn’t true. It allows people to get out of a job they’re locked into, because of — they have healthcare in their job.”
So, under the Democrats, unemployment or underemployment isn't so bad! Heck, now people can do whatever they want! Ain't life grand!!! People are FREE to BE!!!! To pursue their dreams! To live life to the fullest! (Hey Harry - can you tell us WHERE the money will come from for those "free agents" - doing whatever they want? After the years of unemployment monies run out?
And don't you love the 'liberal-speak" ole' Harry demonstrates? "Job lock" means one is stuck in their job - meaning they are, well, EMPLOYED. Yet, "job lock" in Harry's mind is "bad." Why, working gets in the way of doing whatever one wants! Boo - hiss!!! And a "free agent" is good! Yep! If you are not in "job lock" and don't have a job, you are blessed with being a "free agent!" In reality, those of us who don't nod and agree with "liberal-speak" realize a "free agent" is a poor sap who is unemployed! Maybe the good voters in Nevada will exhibit some common sense and make Harry Reid a "free agent" - wouldn't that be sweet?)
There is an analogy using "pus" to describe what Obama is doing to the country in the article I provide a link to. Taking the analogy a bit further:
Obamacare (and Obama declaring he can do whatever he wants without Congress - just like a dictator) is like pus oozing from a diseased wound. It keeps coming, the infection keeps spreading, and eventually - if left untreated - the patient will die.
Obamacare IS the pus. The American people are the patient. The wound is what Obama has done to the country. The infection is one of many consequences associated with Obamacare. Here's hoping the infection is stopped altogether and the patient gets back on the road to recovery. The first step towards the cure for the country begins when REAL Republicans win the elections in 2014 and 2016.
