A Quick Thought Before Coffee

There are things wrong with the Affordable Care Act.

Ya'll also know it as 'Obamacare' but that's really not what's written at the top of the page.

Do you know why they have to keep stressing that it's OBAMACARE?
Because it's essentially the exact same thing as ROMNEYCARE- the health care LAW that's working beautifully in Mass.

The main thing that's wrong with is is NOT that it's
-an evil Socialist plot to force us all to get abortions
-an evil Socialist plot to take away our freedoms
-an evil Socialist plot to bankrupt 'Merica (that would be all the wars we are meddling in and letting Wall St. flush all our money down the toilet)
-an evil Socialist plot to (whatever the hell other insane things people tell you)

The main thing that's wrong with it is it didn't go far ENOUGH by offering a true public option; also known as an OPTION, as in CHOICE in where and how we get our health insurance from. I know some of ya'll hate that word 'choice' because it ends up being tossed in with crap about abortion...as in, "Are you pro-LIFE or pro-CHOICE?" which is a whole 'nuther passle of insanity having to do with people who say they are pro-life also tending to be flag-waving FREEDOM lovers and bible-thumping "God gave us FREE WILL"-ers but that shit is only for themselves, I guess. Not the rest of us.

A public OPTION would be Medicare E- Medicare for everyone and would cover those who CHOOSE it like any other Medicare patient.

Did you know that those on Medicare pay for it? Yes. Yes they do- out of every check, about $100.

Did you know that not everyone on Medicare has to be on it? Yes. Yes they can opt out of Medicare if they have VA or private insurance they want to keep, or even if they say, "Hey- I'm disabled and/or old but I don't need no doctors. That $100 a month will go a long way at the beer store".

See? Choice.

"WHO WILL PAY FOR IT???"

We will, you moron.

The people on it who will be paying their premiums into the largest group insurance in the nation...and we all understand that the larger the group, the cheaper the premium, right? Even those of you with your jaws all slack and knuckles dragging understand THAT MUCH, RIGHT?

The people like me and Ward and everyone who's ever worked and gotten money taken out under the heading "Medicare".

We pay for it. Not as in "OH MY GAWD- THEY'RE TAKING ALL MY MONEY TO PAY FOR THE CRACK HO WELFARE QUEENS TO GET BOOB JOBS!!!"

I cannot freaking believe there is still such a push to DEFUND OBAMACARE!!!

How many millions of dollars have been WASTED in the attempts so far? How many children could that have fed? How much REAL health care could've been provided?

But that's not the point at all, is it?

And (this time) the point isn't even that that black man in the White House said the sky is blue so every red-blooded white 'Merican must scream that it's green.

Why the push to DEFUND OBAMACARE BEFORE IT TAKES EFFECT!!!?

Because they know the awful truth.

They know it's the same thing as their own Romneycare and they know it's working.

They have to kill it before everyone else sees that.

Because if OBAMACARE were the giant pile of steaming disastrous dogshit that they are screaming it will be, the far Right would be backing WAY off just so the country could fall face first in it...then run up with paper towels and soapy water and say, "There, there, 'Merica- let us help you out of that mess- vote for us and we'll fix that right up for ya".

But they're not.

Because it won't.
