Melting down into a puddle of toxic goo quicker than did the 'Wicked Witch of the West' after Dorothy doused her with a bucket water, Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren let her feelings be known about the ‘supposed’ repeal of Obamacare that was officially begun in the House yesterday. And in offering up no evidence whatsoever to support her idiotic claims, Warren said the Republicans’ Obamacare replacement bill that passed the House on Thursday will cause millions of Americans to die. It was via a rather bizarre series of tweets on Thursday, following passage of the bill, that she warned, “Families will go bankrupt. People will die!” Meanwhile, it was the non-partisan Manhattan Institute that did a little fact-checking about the claims that repealing Obamacare will kill Americans, a favorite accusation made by many Democrats, and found it unsupported by any evidence.
It was Oren Cass, a senior fellow at the institute who wrote, “The best statistical estimate for the number of lives saved each year by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is zero.” And, he added, “Certainly, there are individuals who have benefited from various of its provisions. But attempts to claim broader effects on public health or thousands of lives saved rely upon extrapolation from past studies that focus on the value of private health insurance. The ACA, however, has expanded coverage through Medicaid, a public program that, according to several studies, has failed to improve health outcomes for recipients. In fact, public health trends since the implementation of the ACA have worsened, with 80,000 more deaths in 2015 than had mortality continued declining during 2014–15 at the rate achieved during 2000–2013.” So there you have it. Proof that what we get from folks like Warren, is just smoke and mirrors.
And so now I eagerly await to see how those purveyors of what has now become commonly referred to as “fake news”, such as those supposed ‘journalists’ at the Communist News Network (CNN), will go about the ‘reporting’ of Warren's unsubstantiated, as well as blatantly dishonest, statement. Reports which, I am quite sure, will be premised with qualifiers like "falsely", "wrongly", and "without any evidence." You know, just like they always do when they’re talking about President Trump. Like that’s gonna happen. Sadly, folks in our state-controlled media long ago lost any interest whatsoever in being viewed as a source of accurate and unbiased information. These days they are proud to consider themselves as being part of the Democrat Party’s propaganda squad. Especially whenever an opportunity, real or imagined, to bash President Trump may present itself. Or even if one doesn’t.
So Ms. Warren, how many people are dead because of Obamacare and for no other reason than because they were forced to sign up and then could afford to meet neither the rising premiums nor the high deductibles, deciding to forego treatment? And remember folks, Hitlery was supposed to win and it was then that after a couple of years having her in the White House, Obamacare would have then morphed into the single payer healthcare system that Democrats have long been seeking. Or as it is called in Canada, Britain, Australia, and everywhere else it’s been implemented, Socialized medicine. Obamacare was a train wreck right out of the gate. Remember how we were told if we liked our doctor, we could keep our doctor and how if we liked our insurance, we could keep our insurance? It was all bullshit, and the folks telling us this, including our then president, KNEW it was bullshit!
And isn’t it interesting how it’s the exact same number of Americans, 24 million, that the CBO once claimed would be covered by Obamacare, that liberals are now using as the number of those who will lose their insurance even though the report didn't mention anything about 24 million? As is usually the case might they simply be parroting Nancy “We must pass it before we’re able to see what’s in it” Pelosi? And why is it that on the same day it would be Time Magazine saying that only 14 million would lose coverage? Is it because 24 million sounds so much more dramatic than 14 million? Does the CBO report use the word "could" or "would" in their report? Did the same CBO score Obamacare accurately in 2010? Unlikely. Is it true that only half as many people signed up for Obamacare for 2017 than the CBO projected? And when was the last time the CBO score anything accurately?
Yes, maybe there will be people who may die because they don't have Obamacare. He folks, news flash! There were millions of people who lost their insurance under Obamacare. And, sadly, many of them died. And many more, who will never be born, were not given the chance to live. The CBO, the Democrats, and the ‘Man in the Moon’ can throw out any number they like and there are people who will gobble it up as ‘FACT’. The real truth, here, is that no one can predict the future and what it will bring, but one thing is for sure. Obamacare was a disaster that did nothing but try to collect more taxes from the ones who could least afford it and picked the insurance companies that the Democrats wanted to see succeed. They failed at that too. The "non-partisan" CBO? The same CBO that has been wrong on just about everything else over at least the last 8 years?
Obamacare was supposed to help anywhere from 20 million to 60 million Americans, depending on who was rolling out the numbers. Except that, because there was an "opt out" plan in it by paying the tax, the numbers never materialized. And somewhere along the line 20 to 30 million Americans lost their coverage because they had “sub-par” policies. They could only get new policies by paying higher premiums, taking higher deductibles and submitting to the “one size fits all” policies, with coverage they would never need or use. The dirty little secret is that liberals, including old Pocahontas, don't care if people die. Government programs like health care are merely a means to an end for the left. Power and wealth is all they want. They support the murder of hundreds of thousands of babies annually, but want you to believe they care about everyone else.
After decades of liberal policies being shoved down the throats of the people, nothing is as they claimed it would be. Democrats still pretend they are the champion of poor people, while doing everything they can to create more of them. Imagine how many people would die if the government was in complete control of our healthcare, especially the elderly. My mom will be 86 years old this year and she tells me all the time how she thinks that the government doesn’t want all the old people around. And with all her complaining on the subject, Warren, along with most of her liberal colleagues, have absolutely no knowledge or understanding of Obamacare and couldn’t care less about the impact it has come to have on millions of people. They didn't even bother to read the bill before they shoved it down the throats of unsuspecting Americans. They've never been on Obamacare.
Obamacare is yet another government program designed in such a way as to actually discourage its use through excessive premiums and exorbitant deductibles. And in what has become typical government fashion it sounds really good to say that you now have more people with insurance, but what good is having insurance when you can’t afford to use it. Unless, of course, you’re some scum-sucking parasite, aka a Democrat voter, who ends up getting their shit for ‘free’! This is maddening, and I seriously doubt that the legislation referred to as a “repeal” of Obamacare that was passed in the House this past Thursday will accomplish very much, if anything at all, in getting us back to allowing the American people access to quality healthcare for a ‘reasonable’ price. And by ‘reasonable’ I mean less than what it now costs under Obamacare because of premiums and deductibles.
