The Real Case Against Obamacare


 

Healthcare in the United States certainly needs reform, and I am sure there may even be something positive in that regard in Obamacare.  What that might be is not plainly obvious to me, but I do concede that there is at least a chance that maybe there is something in there that might help people, maybe.  What I am absolutely sure about though are two reasons why the bill as a whole is a disaster for the country.  First, we can’t afford it.  Doesn’t anybody else see this, hello were broke.  Our deficit for 2012 is roughly 1.3 trillion dollars, does anybody really think we can add to that.  At some point investors (think China) are going to decide that American governmental debt is a bad investment, when that happens it’s game over.

Second, besides adding to our already obscene deficit this administration decided to push this legislation on a skeptical American public when our nation was at its weakest time economically since the Great Depression.  When Americans were crying out for leaders to fix the economy this administration gave them Obamacare instead.  The debate in congress on Obamacare originally took over a year, time that could have been better spent helping the economy.  It was so divisive that now we get the chance to take even more time on trying to get rid of it instead of fixing the economy.  Don’t get me wrong we do have to revisit the problem and try to fix it.  It’s just that the country would have been better off if this president had never had anything to do with healthcare.  Now instead of debating how to fix the economy during the presidential campaign we get to have a referendum on healthcare again, thanks Mr. president.  It seems to me our time could have been better spent reforming tax laws, reaching a compromise on long-term entitlement spending, enforcing our trade agreements, you know doing the things that will make the economy more competitive to ensure all of our future livelihoods.

  1. If people think Obamacare is a good thing, try talking to heart of our economy, the small business owner. I have talked with 2 today. Both had the same reply; either downsize (loss of jobs) and pay the penalty or run there business in the ground. Funny, I thought democrats were for the working man and not Big business. Bull$hit, all they want is more controls and bigger government!
    – Both sides always act like it’s for good of the people. Here’s a hint, the most frequent sin is pride and hungry for power at others expense.
    P.S. excuse the language!
