President Obama said 24 times, "If you like your health plan, you can keep it." Now we learn that the administration knew from a 2010 HHS report that 93 million Americans would lose their health insurance because Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation makes them illegal.
Obamacare policies must include free birth control, pregnancy and pediatric dental care, and gambling addiction therapy — even for elderly couples. If we don't buy one of these one-size-fits-all all-inclusive policies, we must pay a tax.
With the $600-plus-million Obamacare website a technical disaster, people losing policies cannot even find out how much Obamacare replacements will cost them. In 44 states, replacement policies are predicted to cost substantially more — except for those that taxpayers must subsidize.
The premise of Obamacare is that forcing young, healthy people to enroll will lower premiums for older, less-healthy people. So far, however, five million policies have been cancelled; only 50,000 new Obamacare policies have been issued. Hence the need for all the new taxes in the ACA.
How many absurdities will we accept before we say "No more!"?
The 2,700-page ACA — which Congress did not read — has so far spawned 20,000 pages of regulations, which Congress will also not read. Was the website supposed to fail, so that we will end up with the single-payer government healthcare system that Obama prefers?
Obamacare makes those who are young and/or healthy and/or productive pay for those who are not. It is an income redistribution plan to push us further toward socialism.
