There is a financial website called The Motley Fool, and for a long time I’ve noticed that its owners and writers are obviously in the bag for Obama. By the “bag” I mean the bag of Marxist shit that he has been slinging since 2008.
I say this because the site’s news headlines (on Yahoo and elsewhere) are word plays that make you think the writers have discovered some more terrible news about Obamacare, but after you click through, it’s a bait and switch and you end up reading about how Obamacare is actually going quite well.
Since all sentient beings know that Obamacare is the Hindenberg and that it is being propped up through more lies and legerdemain, these stories are wildly manipulative.
Here is an example from a recent piece:
“Is Obamacare Shutting Down Free Clinics?” [link]
Click through and you will find that YES, Obamacare is in fact shutting down free clinics, but — wait for it — that this is a GOOD THING according to the Motley Fool:
The doors have been closed and the windows shuttered at some free medical clinics across the U.S. thanks to Obamacare. Bad news? Not necessarily.
And from there we get several more helping of Liberal manipulation and insanity, including the citation of a very unbiased source:
Actually, some proponents of the Affordable Care Act say this is a promising trend.
Hey, what a surprise: supporters of Obamacare, the worst policy in America since slavery according to Dr. Ben Carson (link), believe that the shuttering of free clinics is a good thing.
And so is taking babies away from their mothers, right? Liberal insanity at its finest.
But occasionally The Motley Fool abandons its headline trickery and comes straight ahead in support of Obama’s Leviathan:
“Was the Obamacare Panic Overblown?” [link]
In this case, the content matches the headline in the sense that the authors believe that yes, the panic was overblown because “Obamacare is working”.
But how is Obamacare working?
We know that substantially all of the signups on exchanges have been for people who already had insurance before this draconian, statist law was passed; we also know that even Liberals accept the news that an estimated 30 million Americans will STILL be uninsured several years from now, DESPITE the ruthless implementation of this destructive law. We further know that healthcare.gov is a “hackers wet dream“, and further that it has no back-end that would link subscribers to the insurance companies, meaning that insurance companies have to guess at what peoples’ coverages are. Check this out from April 25th:
The Obama administration posted a document earlier this month indicating that insurers will continue to be paid through an “interim” accounting process — pretty much a spreadsheet and some informed estimates — until at least September. When the permanent system eventually goes live, it could lead to a massive correction that either exposes taxpayers to more costs or puts pressure on insurance companies to raise prices. <source>
Excel spreadsheets, folks. And the back-end problem was supposed to have been fixed by “mid-March” according to the Obama administration. Now the revised date is “until at least September“?
I could go on, but it isn’t necessary.
Obamacare is a giant Ponzi scheme, maybe the biggest in human history, and its failure will only get worse and worse and worse, as the IPAB is implemented, as 100 million people are thrown out of their employer-based health care plans, as premiums skyrocket, and as insurance companies fleece the tax payers for trillion dollar government bailouts.
So why would the The Motley Fool declare that the “panic” was overblown and that the law is working?
Here is their evidence:
UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH ) has decided to expand its footprint in the Obamacare exchanges — from five states to at least seven so far. WellPoint (NYSE: WLP ) raised its profit guidance for this year based on strong Obamacare enrollment.
Well now, isn’t that great! Two gigantic insurance companies are making more money because of Obamacare!
But this was always Obama’s malicious design: reward corporate behemoths and go on crushing the average American. When Obamacare passed and was upheld by the Supreme Court, health care stocks went UP. Everybody knew then, and knows now, that the law is the equivalent of the federal government mandating that we all shop at Walmart and spend a minimum amount of money, whether we want to or not. You think Walmart’s stock might go up if such a law were to be passed?
Does this sound like Obamacare is “working” for you?
Insurance companies, faced with new Obamacare fees and taxes meant to help fund the law, are planning to pass along the added costs to consumers. This includes the multibillion-dollar annual “Insurance Providers Fee,” which took effect in January and is assessed to each company based on its share of annual premiums collected by the entire industry. This new fee is expected to raise $8 billion this year and more than $100 billion over the next decade. <source>
Yes, insurance companies and Barack Obama are going to rape the middle class for at least another $100 billion in fees, let alone higher premiums, over the next decade.
And so when the Motley Fool uses health care giants as a proxy for saying Obamacare is working, we can rightly say that they are in the bag for Obama and his diabolical crony capitalism, where a few win while the rest of us lose.
