When President Obama and his Democratic puppets rammed the Affordable Healthcare Act down America’s throat it was to ensure the 13 million uninsured Americans have coverage. Based on 2012 estimates, there are 313.9 million people in America so 13 million people represent four percent of the population.
The mainstream media, ever the Obama public relations team, feted us with story upon story of the travesty that 13 million people in the greatest nation in the world were left uninsured. Obama, the Democrats and the complicit media all rallied to change the healthcare system. Our former healthcare system was not perfect but it was the best in the world.
Fast-forward to today where Obama apologized to those American who are losing their insurance coverage despite promises he made to the contrary when he pulled a Bernie Madoff type scam on the American people. He is sorry they find “themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me” but he said nothing about not keeping his word.
Ironically, estimates from various organizations put the figure of those Americans losing their coverage at five percent. Obama, Democrats and the media are referring to this group as “only” five percent.
Does anyone else see the irony of “fixing” a system where four percent of the population is affected by screwing up five percent of the population with the fix?
I do not see the media running sob stories for this five percent. I do not see the media attacking Obama for apologizing for the situation rather than apologizing for putting them in the situation and lying to us. I wonder if the media would have been as kind if President George Bush was the one who made the comments?
Apologies are warranted but so is action. The so-called leaders in Washington, DC need to really fix the system. I suggest using the sandlot baseball fix whenever there is a disagreement with a play. “Do over!” Except this time, the puppets should cut strings and vote to do the right thing and leave the private sector alone.
If they do not, the mod-term elections may prove to be an eye opener when the puppets find out the puppeteer cut and ran leaving them holding the strings.
