Today’s short post on Obamacare and how it is harming us all: the “vast majority” of signups on healthcare.gov had been previously insured.
Of the people who had actually enrolled in a new plan in 2014, the vast majority had been previously insured. Another way to say that is that for all of the talk about 7-million this and 8-million that, Obamacare’s expansion of coverage to the uninsured was smaller. <source>
This confirms what we have known all along: Obamacare is not about insuring the uninsured; it is about the central power taking control of each of our bodies and how we care for ourselves. It is a naked power grab by a Marxist who is hellbent on putting our nation back into a feudal society, circa 1100 AD, where a King ruled through fear, intimidation, and selective enforcement of edicts, and where impoverished peasants prayed to god that they might curry favor with this or that petty bureaucrat.
In just a few months, tens of millions of citizens will be dumped by their employer-based plans and shoved onto government exchanges where they will find worse insurance that costs them more money.
Barack Obama’s plan continues, and if you are a smug Liberal thinking that all of this is in the service of something good I suggest you get you and your family ready for the pain that is coming straight at you.
One day in the future you are going to tell me that I was right, that you should have listened, that you fell victim to your fantasies and now realize just how wrong you were. That Obamacare is not like the NHS in England or the systems in any other countries you so naively believe have been a model for the monstrosity that we now have here. That your wife and children are NOT getting the care they need, when they need it.
But it will be too late, in more ways than one.
