Government can't get website right, but don't worry, putting them in charge of your health care is perfectly safe
Three years and counting, and hundreds of millions of dollars spent, apparently no one has been on record of having been signed up for ObamaCare. The one guy who bragged about it has been shown to be a partisan lackey and a liar. He didn't sign up and neither did his father.
The Obama apologists in and out of the media told us it was because of the incredible popularity of the program. Well, when you threaten to fine people for not signing up, and promote the hell of a program that promises to save them $2500 per year, do you expect that a few inquiries with trickle in? Do you take us for idiots? You expect us to swallow that bullshit? Who do you think we are; editors for the Virginian Pilot?
For the boobs who bought the bait, who really believed the lies that Obama told, truth bites in their wallet. Two backers of ObamaCare are meeting reality and it brings a smile to my face.
Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act. They vote independent and are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama.Yet, like many other Bay Area residents who pay for their own medical insurance, they were floored last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law.Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four."Welcome to the club," said Robert Laszewksi, a prominent health care consultant and president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates in Virginia.
Here's the classic Obama supporter reaction:
"Of course, I want people to have health care," Vinson said. "I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."
Vinson is a true Democrat: always ready to spend other people's money. Who did you think was going to pay for it, the tooth fairly? The "rich" who are supposed to pay for all the good deeds Vinson votes for? At least for a little while this country is middle class and the vast majority of it's income flows through he middle class. Which means that the middle class pays for the majority of government programs. So Cindy, despite what you have been led to believe by Obama and his minions in the media, you are going to pay ... personally.
So Team Obama's taking the ObamaCare website down for "repairs." They're promising that it will be fixed, eventually. And the screw-up with the roll out shouldn't make you worry that when the death panels, excuse me the "ethics panels" that decide that since you're over 70 you are not worth receiving advanced neurosurgical care and you object, don't worry, your concerns will be put into the computer.
The ObamaCare debut could not have been more appropriate and more ominous. I sincerely wish that every Democrat, every member of the news media, their parents and their children could be forced to enroll on ObamaCare. I love a good retribution.
