Those of us who had decent health care in 2009 have been ripped off
By Jack Hellner - AMERICAN THINKER
In 2009, the healthcare system was working reasonably well for around 85% of us. Instead of trying to address the problems of those that weren't covered, Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, the American Medical Association, hospitals, and insurance companies chose to rework the system for all of us.
They wrote a 2,000-plus-page law with over 10,000 pages of regulations and 20 new taxes. On order to pass the bill they continually lied to the people that if they liked their plan and doctor they could keep them and it would lower premiums. They knew this wasn't true because they dictated exactly what had to be in the policies to please the government. The CBO dutifully estimated that 26 million would be covered by 2016 and that the 10 year cost would be less than $1 trillion. Within three years, the estimate was over $2 trillion and only 11 million were covered. The government bribed the states with 100% coverage of Medicaid expansion for awhile.The media gladly repeated the lies about Obamacare and supported it every step of the way
Commenting on a recent finding that many Democrats would have trouble continuing a friendship with anyone who is pro-President Trump, Harvard Law Professor Adrian Vermeule remarked that the least tolerant among us are “white liberal college graduates.”
