The Horrible Care Act

The comments by Kathleen Sebelius, Health and Human Services director, is a stark demonstration of the blind, organized disconnect between elitist progressives and the American public. This is the same thought process Dr. Jonathon Gruber has, that the people are “too stupid” to understand their choices and we intelligentsia need to make them for you. I know what is best for, so let me do it.

This is also the same thought process employed by Barack Obama and his cohorts. Her comments should troubling to the administration, though, because they cast doubts on the narrative that the president is always right and has suffered disenchantment from the public in large. That the blind admiration and devotion by the Obamaites has crumbled, and they now see and feel the harsh reality of “hope and change.” To say there’s a problem with the brand name is tantamount to an admittance of failure by the administration – a point to which, I would definitely be agreement on – and not only frustrations about his name sake law, ObamaCare. If there is an issue with the name of the law how about altering it to a more fitting one – The Horrible Care Act.

With the numerous failed intentions and broken promises of the ACA, it’s an extremely appropriate change. Between the debacles website – that millennials won’t forget; the over six million booted from insurance policies they liked – projected to jump to over one hundred million after the temporary moratorium for businesses expires; the doctors leaving their practices in droves, and some entire hospitals refusing to accept patients with ObamaCare coverage; to the false promises to seniors, and instead proposing an expiration date for those in their early seventies. Then there was the promise millennials could stay on mommy and daddy’s insurance until age 26; an unnecessary guarantee, not only because most of us don’t really need insurance until we get into our forties, but also the market already provided it for the youth, with carriers already offering this provision. That wasn’t the only option either, there was catastrophic coverage and lower priced coverage, dismantled by the ACA. Lastly, it has to be mentioned that the reported numbers of new enrollees is questionable, many having enrolled in Medicare not ObamaCare, but counted on the ACA tally sheets. The only demographic that hasn’t been reported damaged by this law is those with prediagnosted conditions, but I’m sure they will get hit by this legislative atomic bomb as well.

In reflection after writing this article, maybe Mrs. Sebelius has a point of adopting a new title for this act of federal larceny. That way the public will be reminded the next time a politician try to advance a bad law, that doesn’t help anyone but the state. Then maybe they might think back on the litany of grievances brought on by the law that no one wanted but was forced on us anyways, in the end by a single vote.
