Question: how many doses of reality can a Liberal take?
Answer: not even one, because reality is too inconvenient in the glow of his or her toxic Good Intentions.
So here’s one more bit of reality for the rest of us sorry souls who are being dragged down into the reality of Liberal Fantasy Hell on Earth:
Get ready for health insurance premiums to double.
That’s the verdict from Elise Verbeck at The Hill, a prominent political website. She reported recently that health industry officials project that parts of the country will see their premiums shoot up by 100%, especially areas with higher numbers of elderly and sicker residents. <source>
And what is the Obama party line on these nasty realities?
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told the House Ways and Means Committee that increases will be “far less significant than what they were prior to the Affordable Care Act.”
Gee, that’s funny — I remember my rates going higher pre-Obamacare, but doubling?
But with the UN-Affordable Care Act, my rates did almost double — from around $500 to nearly $1,000 per month, and I get less choice and higher deductibles to boot.
So Barack Obama and his regime tell us lie after lie after lie — that premiums which are doubling because of Obamacare are somehow not the fault of Obamacare; that the regime is doing good things for the middle class; that Obamacare would save the average family “$2,500 per year”. And then as the lies get uncovered by the ugly hideous truth, the Obama regime lies some more. And then more. With the most sincere faces they can muster.
This is the Orwellian world that was prophesied in the novel 1984.
It’s 2014, so 30 years late, but it’s here.
