Six people enrolled in Obamacare on the first day. SIX. That’s not only incredulous, it’s laughable. To quote Jay Leno, “that means more people have walked on the moon than have signed up.”
To this day, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has refused to release any numbers at all. Now we know why…
Meanwhile, millions of Americans have suddenly had their health insurance cancelled because, as the Administration haughtily says, it’s “sub-standard”— meaning that the government knows best that a 60-year-old needs maternity coverage.
For their aggravation, what do these folks get as a replacement? You guessed it — skyrocketing premiums and gigantic deductibles.
Contrary to what the White House says, the vast majority of workers who receive coverage from their employers are hardly immune to the disastrous effects of the new law. Starting January 1st, many will find significant premium increases; others will lose their insurance altogether or have their hours cut to part-time.
Question is: What does this mean for the future of the Affordable Care Act? Will it survive if the young and healthy refuse to sign up in the numbers it needs to remain sustainable? What about all the doctors and hospitals who are opting out of accepting Obamacare patients?
Like the Wizard behind the curtain, it’s clear the President repeatedly made false promises to ram through this monstrosity of a law. The folks who spawned the Tea Party movement knew this; many in the GOP knew this. For their efforts, the Left and media portrayed them as tin-foil hat-wearing racists.
…Ahhh, but there’s nothing like time and reality to clear the noxious fog of progressive propaganda.
That is why you definitely want to watch this October 30th discussion on “The Kelly File” between host Megyn Kelly and Charles Krauthammer. The success or failure of Obamacare is a defining moment, Krauthammer explained, which will impact the future of the leftist vision:
“Obamacare is the core of the new expansion of the liberal idea. This is sort of the continuation of the New Deal, it’s the continuation of the Great Society. In a sense, the way that liberals have portrayed it, it’s the completion of the entitlement state.”
