Using the words “patient protection” and “affordable” to describe Obamacare is completely oxymoronic – with the emphasis on moronic.
First of all, Obamacare does not protect any patients. Americans are losing their coverage and their doctors who are fleeing from this government-driven healthcare program.
Secondly, according to a state-by-state study by the Manhattan Institute and reported in Forbes, Obamacare is not at all affordable, as it will increase underlying premiums by 41 percent. Click here to see their analysis for you and your state.
Of course Obamacare defenders will say that subsidies will negate the premium increases, but who pays the subsidies? We do, of course. So on top of exorbitant debt, high gas prices, and depressed middle-income wages, Obamacare isn’t affordable to individuals or to the nation.
And don’t forget the employer mandate delay will end next year around September meaning more Americans will be dropped from their employer-based coverage. Some estimates predict nearly 170 million Americans or 68% of the total population will lose healthcare plans and coverage.
Finally, remember that the political elite in Washington DC are exempt from this. Is this our America? Is this the new normal? Will you accept this, or will we challenge the acolytes of progressive socialism?
