The Wall Street Journal reports: “It seems Nancy Pelosi was wrong when she said we have to pass ObamaCare to find out what’s in it. No one may ever know because the White House keeps treating the Affordable Care Act’s text as a mere suggestion subject to day-to-day revision. Its latest political retrofit is the most brazen: President Obama is partly suspending the individual mandate.”
“The White House argued at the Supreme Court that the insurance-purchase mandate was not only constitutional but essential to the law’s success, while refusing Republican demands to delay or repeal it. But late on Thursday, with only four days to go before the December enrollment deadline, the Health and Human Services Department decreed that millions of Americans are suddenly exempt.”
“Individuals whose health plans were canceled will now automatically qualify for a hardship exemption from the mandate. If they can’t or don’t sign up for a new plan, they don’t have to pay the tax. They can also get a special category of ObamaCare insurance designed for people under age 30.
“So merry Christmas. If ObamaCare’s benefit and income redistribution requirements made your old, cheaper, better health plan illegal, you now have the option of going without coverage without the government taking your money as punishment. You can also claim the … consolation of an ObamaCare hardship exemption due to ObamaCare itself.”
Many Americans see ObamaCare as a threat, such as the 5.6 million Americans who have lost their old health care insurance and millions more who are going to lose it. Many of these people won’t be able to afford the increased premiums of ObamaCare. In fact, it’s beginning to look more and more like ObamaCare was nothing more than a scam, designed to steal health care from people, who earned it with their jobs, or to double the price for current health care customers.
The one thing that seems undeniable is that FEWER working people will have health care insurance due to ObamaCare. The elephant in the living room that Obama, the mainstream media and even the conservatives have not been discussing is “Who are the people who will be getting ObamaCare for free?”
My guess would be poor Democrats including “single mom” families who are breeding a new majority for America. The old majority of hard-working White people is being replaced with a new majority of Black and Brown minimum wage workers and/or welfare parasites. After all, Obama is all about patronage and paying back the deadbeats, who helped vote him into office is at the top of his agenda.
If we want to stop this slide into a Third World nation, we need to start talking openly about the enormous Black and Brown underclass before they become a majority. Keeping our mouths shut about the race problem has accomplished nothing, but allowed the problem to get worse.
