“You Americans are too stupid to know what’s good for you”. That’s the message from Jonathan Gruber at team Obama about the American voter. Gruber, a professor of economics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), expressed his contempt for the American voter by calling them stupid.
Stupid is as stupid does, and Gruber’s admission of lying and manipulating the un-Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, to get it passed is a typical tactic that democrats have use to get legislation that they know won’t work, except to enrich themselves at the taxpayer’s expense. Gruber might be a economics professor, but he’s bankrupt of common sense.
Gruber was paid $400,000 to promote and speak about the virtues of Obamacare. It turns out that Obamacare is nothing more than a tax. The greatest redistribution of wealth in America. It is government extortion, robbery and deception at its criminal best. It is the lie of the century, besides Obama’s lie — “If you like your doctor and your health insurance, you can keep your health care. Period!”.
After a real news media (Fox News) reported this lack of transparency, this MIT Turd tried to walk back his statements saying his remarks were “off the cuff and inappropriate”. He’s sorry he got caught telling the truth.
The more you earn, the more you’ll get taxed. The more you climb the ladder of success, the more government removes the rungs of success The exploitation of the American taxpayer by lying to the American people about their health care insurance costs. Destroying the incentive to work, to profit and to pursue happiness.
Democrats will claim that 7 million people who were not insured, will now be insured under Obamacare. Yes, but 90 million people will lose their current health care insurance because Obamacare declared it substandard.
Obamacare forces health care insurers to drop coverage because Obamacare declared your health care plan “substandard”. It’s declared substandard because your current insurance doesn’t cover what Obamacare wants.
Your new Obamacare coverage will force males to pay for abortion coverage, and females to cover prostrate coverage. It will force older people to cover prenatal coverage, even though they are not having more children. That’s how the system works! By declaring your health insurance substandard, by making you pay for coverage you either don’t need, or want. It’s the one size fits all coverage. The only problem is paying for all that coverage you don’t need.
Before Obamacare, insurance companies were allowed to tailor your health care insurance to your needs, age and lifestyle. Obamacare lumps everyone into 4 different coverages that are cost prohibitive and unnecessary. Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum; there’s no difference in the coverage, just how much you pay. The Obamacare model doesn’t work.
Then, Obamacare still has a panel of unelected bureaucrats in Washington D.C. that will determine your eligibility for your health care needs. If you either need a surgery, a drug, or some medical procedure, that will be determined by some Washington D.C. bureaucrats. Also known as — your death panels.
Obamacare must be repealed and replaced. Insurance companies should be able to write policies that meet customers needs. Doctors must be able to provide services that their patients needs. People need to decide what coverage they want to pay for. Taxes levied against medical companies need to be repealed to allow innovation to grow. Everything about what worked before Obamacare should be restored. The poor that cannot afford health care, should get government subsidies. Big government health care doesn’t work in a free market.
