The Obamacare decision

Well, Democrats lied (what’s new?).  They sold Obamacare, emphatically, as not being a tax.  Democrats knew that passing a huge new tax on all Americans (and it will eventually involve ALL Americans) would have sealed their doom.  The job now is to make sure that everyone KNOWS this is a tax.  That’s the only thing that made it legal–Congress’ taxing authority is what the justices cited–not the commerce clause.

There will be 21 new taxes.  Twelve of those will affect families making less than $250k per year (another lie by Obama/Democrats who pretended that this was as good as a “protected class” in all their bloviating).  We have been betrayed by a whole political party and it’s imperative that everyone make it known to everyone they know–this was a fraud from the start.

If allowed to stand, this will inevitably lead to “single payer,” or government-run health care for all.  I say inevitably because there is no way for private enterprise to compete with government, especially in the face of more and more unfunded mandates (they have now been forced to cover pre-existing conditions and contraceptives with no cost passed on to the beneficiaries of those services).  Only the government through taxation can absorb those kinds of costs and Obama and the Democrats know this very well.  They will drive the private insurance industry out of business and in effect, nationalize healthcare.

On down the road, they’ll do the same thing they’ve done with Social Security and Medicare–robbing healthcare of funds in order to fund other projects and gradually squeezing quality and quantity of care–rationing–in order to keep the funds coming.  And they won’t have to answer to the taxpayers for their malfeasance, because like Social Security and Medicare, it will go to the general fund where we have no way to track it.  In effect, they’ve taken another 1/6 of the economy as a new tax without any accountability to the taxpayers.  When they eventually say the program can’t afford a coverage, we’ll have no recourse but to go home and die.

Our medical research and development that has led the world will dwindle to nothing and not only we, but the rest of the world, will suffer for it.  Advanced cures and treatments for illness and disease will be jettisoned first as “experimental”–or worse, handed out to politically connected companies while the rest go begging.

Once this process is in the hands of the government, there is no accountability or recourse available to taxpayers.

I will think on this some more, but at this point, repeal is the only way to undo this bad law.  Please–support Republicans this November.   Otherwise, our parents and our kids will suffer for it later.
