According to an article in Politico, Obamacare has many Congressmen and their legislative aides jumping ship like proverbial rats from a sinking ship; many plan to take early retirement or merely leave at the end of this year. The problem is that many of them will be moved from their present health insurance plan, which is subsidized up to 75% by the government (a/k/a taxpayers) into health care exchanges (Obamacare). However, if they leave by the end of the year, they can keep their present coverage. Rep John Lawson, Connecticut Democrat, says “This is just not fair…. it is going to hinder members’ ability to take care of their families.” There is a lot of whining, complaining, and hand wringing going on among the Congressmen about the gross “unfairness” of this. I have a news bulletin for the whiners in Congress: Obamacare is impacting all Americans negatively.
Well then why not simply repeal Obamacare? Just get rid of it– Simple. The majority of Americans were against it when it was forced upon us and now that the negative effects of Obamacare are impacting most of us, there is even more opposition than ever. Healthcare is 1/6 of America’s economy and the fact that our government has hijacked it is reprehensible. Any law made by one man can be repealed by another man. Please, Congress, repeal it.
Just do it.
We the People want to decide for ourselves when we will see a doctor and which doctor we will see. We want our doctors to advise us about which procedure will have, and what medications we will take. We do not wish Kathleen Sebelius or anybody else making any decisions for us, or determining who deserves something and who does not.
Does anybody remember President Obama’s horrifying answer when Jane Sturm asked him whether her 100-year-old mother could have a pacemaker? This minute and a half video will chill your blood:
Ask yourself: Just 10 years ago, would it have occurred to you to ask the President of the United States for permission for your mother to have a pacemaker?
Nancy Pelosi said that they should “pass it so we could find out what’s in it.” Well, now they know, don’t they?
Please contact your Congressman and implore him to diligently and actively seek to repeal Obamacare and do not give up until it happens.
