Stick A Fork In Us

From the late Sunday edition of the Boston Herald:

“WASHINGTON – Americans who already have health insurance are blaming President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul for their rising premiums and deductibles, and overall 3 in 4 say the rollout of coverage for the uninsured has gone poorly.

An Associated Press-GfK poll finds that health care remains politically charged going into next year’s congressional elections. Keeping the refurbished website running smoothly is just one of Obama’s challenges, maybe not the biggest.

The poll found a striking level of unease about the law among people who have health insurance and aren’t looking for any more government help. Those are the 85 percent of Americans who the White House says don’t have to be worried about the president’s historic push to expand coverage for the uninsured.

In the survey, nearly half of those with job-based or other private coverage say their policies will be changing next year – mostly for the worse. Nearly 4 in 5 (77 percent) blame the changes on the Affordable Care Act, even though the trend toward leaner coverage predates the law’s passage.

Sixty-nine percent say their premiums will be going up, while 59 percent say annual deductibles or copayments are increasing.”


         A review of this poll indicates that the Obama administration is totally out of touch with the majority of the American people and continues to double-double down on a program that is proving to be more unpopular with each passing day. The fact that Barry and his crew have chosen not to listen to the people they work for, you know those people, US, has proven that he is either totally out of touch and blinded by his press coverage or he doesn’t give a crap. In either case, this is dangerous for our country and its people.
         I understand that every President has an agenda which, based on his campaign and the resulting vote, he was elected to fulfill. In the case of the Affordable Care Act, in 2008, he made no secret of his desire to work toward enacting such a law. And during 2009, he had a Congress in place to go along with such a plan.
         But unlike the Pantsuit’s promise that “we have to pass it to see what’s in it, and then we will like it”, quite the opposite has been happening. The more we see what was in it, the more we hate it. This survey is the latest in so many polls which show we actually want it be suspended and, ultimately, repealed.
          I know we have had an election which has put the architect of this nightmare into office for a second time. But understand that this election wasn’t a referendum of the “signature” piece of garbage we are now saddled with. Instead, Barry ran a better campaign than Mitt, especially during the last week to ten days. And for that, Obamacare was given the green light. It was politically astute by the Pantsuit/Horse-led Congress to push off its total enactment beyond the 2012 election.
          But now the negative consequences of this law is finally rearing its ugly head to the pain and dismay of so many people. We really don’t like what we see. And Barry doesn’t care. By the time his term ends in January, 2017, this disaster will be so entrenched in our lives, there will be no feasible way to extricate it.
          That, my friends, is his legacy: the transformation of our country from a free market economy to a socialist state. And, San Francisco, thanks to the uninformed and uneducated voter in your beautiful city, the Pantsuit is the legacy you saddled the rest of us with.
            And for the people who have found their rates have gone up or their copays or deductibles have increased? Don’t worry, the rest of us will soon be joining you.
           Sooner than we all think.
