April Fools, Obamacare, and BS

When you hear the glove snap, it’s time to bend over.

 

 

 

 

April freaking fool’s day. Yes, I’m angry. For reasons I will write about later. For now, let me just state this. Bureaucracies, over time, simply exist to support themselves. Of course, some bureaucratic BS is necessary to run the world. However, if you don’t know that about bureaucracies, you haven’t given it much thought.

I’m on the White House mailing list, and today, I received the letter from the President telling us how much better life is because of Obamacare. Sorry Nancy, I’m still going to call it that.

Just to start out, if you’d like to read the entire letter, I’ve linked the White House blog to the bottom of this post. And, whether you support Obama or not, you know all the numbers are fabricated. Bad guesses at best.

Normally, I cite sources. I’m not going to tonight. (Except for Goldberg’s’ column and the White House blog post) If you need sources, you’ve not paid a bit of attention in the last two years, and it’s not my responsibility to provide them. Surf the internet for God’s sake. This has been a disaster from what’s her names “We have to pass the bill so we can know what is in it.” I mean, seriously, how has this women not been thrown out on her ass? This is how we govern in America?

Obama is citing “millions” of Americans, young adults, yada yada like he has a clue what he’s talking about. Read the following excerpt from Bernard Goldberg’s latest column, and I’ve linked the entire post at the bottom. I can’t say it any better.

 Too bad the White House forgot to tell the American people how great ObamaCare is.  An AP poll taken right before the six million number was released showed that only 26 percent of Americans support the president’s signature piece of legislation.  That’s the lowest approval rating since ObamaCare became law. (In fairness, the poll may be way off base since it wasn’t conducted of “registered voters” or “likely voters” but simply “adults” – anyone, in other words, with a pulse.)

I don’t want to be a party pooper but there are a few things we don’t know.  We don’t know how many of the six or seven million actually paid their premium.  If they didn’t, they’re not covered — and so they don’t count.

We don’t know how many fit into the key demographic – young and healthy, the ones whose money is desperately needed to keep the plan afloat.

We also don’t know how many already had health insurance but got cancellation notices before they signed up for a new plan they didn’t want.   For all we know maybe only a million of those supposed six or seven million got medical insurance for the first time.

And there’s something else we don’t know.  We don’t know if the numbers the White House is putting out are even close to accurate.

Because, as Goldberg goes on to say, it’s not like Obama’s lied to us about anything else? And by-the-way, our “long broken healthcare system?” Sounds like you’ve been watching too many Michael Moore mockumentaries.

Anyway, if you had to sign up for Obamacare, good luck. You can’t pick your doctor, you can’t pick your healthcare plan. And, if you had something before, what you have now is probably more expensive. But don’t fret, he’s trying to raise the minimum wage.

  3. Deductibles and premiums sky high they don’t even have insurance until they pay the crazy high deductibles … Which they can’t afford. Sometimes I wonder if people are not that bright or just get fooled that easy with smooth talkers
