If you get sick or suffer a serious injury, you not only want medical care, you want quality medical care. What’s the best way to get it? Through a government-run program like Medicare for All or through our current free market system? Stanford policy expert Lanhee Chen has the answer in this video from Prager University.
Remember when Barack Obama swore up and down that the ObamaCare individual mandate was not a tax? Using sleazy-lawyer-speak, Obama called the ObamaCare tax, ahem, a penalty.
Along came the Supreme Court and declared the individual mandate a tax. Surprise. That infamous decision allowed ObamaCare to become the law of the land.
Obama lied. Again.
Anyone sense a pattern in Barack’s behavior?
Analysts estimate ObamaCare will cost the average taxpayer nearly $6,000 in extra taxes.
Welcome to January 1, 2014, to the New Year, and a tsunami of ObamaCare taxes brought to you exclusively by Barack Obama and the Democrat party.
- Fired for incompetence bordering on idiocy.
- Indicted by the SEC for fraud.
- Sent to jail for a very long time.
- Sued successfully by his investors for billions of dollars.
However, because he’s a crooked politician, he is immune to all rational consequences.
ObamaCare is a tsunami of laws that are not really laws. They are a series of random improvisations. Something happens because of ObamaCare. That something is always ghastly, and Obama, improvising an oily El Presidente of a banana republic, proclaims a new set of laws that nullify the old — but maybe not. Perhaps the old laws will still be enforced. No one knows. Not even the hilariously self-assured and solemn El Presidente.
A little history lesson. Back in the 60s, the New Left—Obama’s mentors: Frank Marshall Davis, Jeremiah Wright, Derrick Bell, Bill Ayres, etc.— realized that Marxist rhetoric, “the struggle of the proletariat”, was kind of toxic, not to mention irrelevant, in a prosperous, upwardly mobile America. Thus, these American Communists skillfully performed a makeover on their language and image. The proletariat was replaced—and this was a brilliant move—by Social Justice. A cuddly label that masks the reeducation gulags to which it inevitably leads.
Just ask Duck Dynasty Christian Phil Robertson. He’s on the receiving end of the Social Justice buzz saw.
The totalitarian ideology of Communism was slyly transformed into the seemingly benign Green Movement, Global Cooling/Warming/Whatever Hysteria, war against traditional marriage juggernaut, and of course, the enabling of IslamoNazism under the banner of multiculturalism.
ObamaCare, like Communism/Socialism is a top down, one-size-fits-all scheme that denies individuality in favor of the collective.
Obama and the Democrats claim to care about the poor, the sick, the huddled middle class. But in truth, they care about government. And government is made up of bureaucrats, a universe of malignant Orwellian bureaucracies.
Governments and bureaucracies do not care about people.
Governments and bureaucracies care about rules and regulations.
The human misery that Obama and the Democrats have unleashed on the American people, in collaboration with the media lapdogs, is only just beginning.
Democrats claim to be delighted that Romney has chosen Paul Ryan as his running mate. The attack dogs of the left are already trying to paint Ryan as some kind of radical who will “end Medicare as we know it.”
Considering that Medicare, according to the CBO, will implode in 12 years—maybe sooner—this is an odd line of attack. Even more so when you consider that Obama is actually the man who is destroying Medicare when he looted 716 billion dollars from the Medicare fund in order to finance the ruinous Obamacare.
The government can’t even run AMTRAK or the Post Office. How does anyone expect the Feds to run a national health system?
