Observations and views from a different set of eyes

on February 12, 2013

Wow, shocker! You mean we were misled again?

The Stuttering Messiah

WheelsComingOffThe central parts of ObamaCare don’t roll out until 2014, but the wheels are already falling off this clunker.

The latest news from four federal agencies is that:

1) insurance will be a lot less affordable than Americans were led to expect,

2) fewer people than promised will get insurance and

3) millions of people who have coverage through a job now will lose it, thanks to the president’s “reforms.”

Oh, and children are the biggest victims.

The Affordable Care Act is looking less and less affordable.

Start with the IRS’s new estimate for what the cheapest family plan will cost by 2016: $20,000 a year to cover two adults and three kids. And that will only cover 60 percent of medical bills, so add hefty out-of-pocket costs, too.

    Politics and religion – the two most heated topics for discussion. Regardless of the potential debate, I commend you for posting this. This article (whether opinion piece or not) comes to no surprise. Many people (or rather the majority of people) voted for this man simply because of how the most popular news stations portrayed him. Most did not bother however, to look beyond these scripted words to see what this man was really all about. He sais what he had to, when he had to and to who he had to, just to win their vote and he accomplished his mission. He didn’t fool this household though. But, now after all has been said and done, people are getting the “change” he promised all along. A change that is corrupting every aspect of this country’s foundation.

    I really don’t understand all the fuss about Obamacare in the US: it just makes me glad that we have a great system in Australia in which everyone gets access to good health care.
