I’m tired. Tired of both sides. Tired of the media, especially Britt, Bill, Sean, Kelly, Anderson and Jake. Tired of intellectual dishonesty from friends who call my side racists and Trump Hitler. Tired of those on my side not admitting we nominated a gift to the Left that will never stop giving, even after #ExplodingCommode2016™ is in our review mirror. As a country we once at least pretended there was honor and dignity in our electoral process. Now, when Hillary’s campaign is shown to be the lying liars they are, their media acolytes shift to DEFCON 4 election mode. When Trump has the opportunity to close the deal (and he’s had countless) he shifts to thin-skinned defense mechanisms not seen in my household since my kids were 4.
But I don’t blame just this election on being tired. We were tired in 2012. We were tired of the lies, cover-ups, media bias, unaccountable malfeasance from the highest levels in our supposedly public government. Tired of the powerful special interests feathering their own nests with taxpayer funds while passing policies harmful to those they say they are trying to help. Whether it was banks protecting themselves with the unconstitutional Dodd-Frank Act, or the insurance lobby written bribery known as Obamacare.
This gargantuan fraud passed much to the horror of a majority of Americans and every single Republican office holder. Democrats forced Obamacare down America’s throat foie gras style. 2017 enrollments are being opened as you are reading this, and for a vast majority of individuals, they are seeing massive cost increases and will have to make tough decisions. My split household has an increase of 22% and 28%. Yet smarmy Democrats on the teevee point to the relatively few who are covered by taxpayer largesse. Of course, hardly any interviewer calls shenanigans. The ACA is insolvent. Why hasn’t the MSM pointed to the fact the Treasury will be used to bypass Congress and bail out the failure that is Obamacare. Forbes reports:
The Obama administration is maneuvering to pay health insurers billions of dollars the government owes under the Affordable Care Act, through a move that could circumvent Congress and help shore up the president’s signature legislative achievement before he leaves office.
The story says the cash would likely come from “an obscure Treasury Department fund.”
On the face of it, you might think the government is going to pay. But remember the government really doesn’t have any money at all — it is your money. All government money is there by virtue of the taxes imposed on businesses and people. Basically, the failures of Obama’s signature healthcare law is going to be paid for by you, the U.S. taxpayer.
It gets worse. This move is yet another bailout for big business, just like the banking bailout of 2009. The cash will go to health insurance companies. That’s something that won’t sit well with many Democrats or Republicans. After all, why should the citizenry pay for the mistakes of businesses?
Or… why should the citizenry pay for the mistakes of one political party, when the other was staunchly against it? Remember, NOT ONE REPUBLICAN VOTE! How about the DNC, Democratic politicians and their voters pay? After all, it was their pathological lies, bribery of Senators and finagling of special interests like AARP who dragged the bankrupt law across the reconciled finish line. Remember these lies?
“If you like your Doctor, you’ll get to keep your Doctor.”Lost my Dr. in 2014.
“If you like your plan, you’ll get to keep your plan.” I’ve had 3 different plans since.
And now, as horrified parents contemplate Christmas presents, they’re required to downgrade to the crappy Bronze plan (meaning out-of-pocket expense for EVERYTHING).
The Presidents namesake law was built on lies, CBO shell games and fraud. Just ask Democrats opening their 2017 enrollment forms if they still believe the biggest lie of all:
