Many a truth is spoken in jest …
** Other than acting as a cheerleader and signing legislation into law, the President of the United States has little or no input into the assumptions and congressional decisions that are the basis of health care legislation.
** During the Obama Administration, Joe Biden’s role was to be Obama’s sock puppet, the amiable old white guy that could serve as a liaison to the establishment’s old guard.
** The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was crafted in a backroom by progressive socialist democrats and actually written by progressive foundations and industry-connected special interests. And, if one were to actually read the 2000+ page bill, one would find that it is little more than an outline that delegates the actual implementation to the bureaucracy in the form of Executive Branch administrative rules and regulations promulgated by numerous commissions and panels.
** Obamacare was a lie from the beginning. There was nothing affordable about Obamacare – without government subsidies, premiums, deductibles, and co-pays skyrocketed into the stratosphere and made individuals and families reluctant to seek health care except for the more dire circumstances due to the high deductibles. And, of course, the biggest lies were told by President Obama AND VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN, who stood before the American public and told you that you could keep your present healthcare and doctors.
** Obamacare was not only unconstitutional, as we have seen from recent court rulings, but it was also passed in a non-traditional manner using a trick from the congressional rules book. Not one Republican was allowed to see the legislation, no amendments were possible, and it was passed by the progressive socialist Democrats and Independents in the Senate with no Republican votes.
** Billions have been pumped into the guts of the system – Electronic Health Records – and the system is an abject failure.
** Billions have been pumped into state insurance exchanges, and most are bankrupt.
** Billions in waste, fraud, and abuse were to be identified and used to pay for the program – and never materialized, with the abuse, waste, and fraud continuing unabated.
** The “geniuses” that pushed Obamacare and the Obama-friendly bureaucracy still exists and are likely to be involved with any subsequent legislation.
** Obamacare was to be the precursor to a single-payer healthcare system in the United States – the VA on steroids.
** Medicare is going broke and these idiots want to expand coverage without a corresponding increase in physicians, facilities, diagnostic equipment, and healthcare workers.
Unless some genius has formulated and published a workable plan that Joe Biden can plagiarize, he is totally worthless as a visionary, as a leader, and as a politician. Biden is as corrupt as they come, just look at how druggie and womanizer Hunter Biden makes his money.
When Biden isn’t furious at something or someone, he is little more than a smile and a handshake.
We are so screwed.
