Obamacare: a government takeover of health care creating death panels, killing the elderly, women, and children, putting the government between you and your doctor, and destroying the economy, Relax, Obamacare does not exist.
Obamacare is a corporate puppet GOP myth.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a set of insurance regulations that end corporate abuse that prevents millions from obtaining health care. These abuses have led to suffering and millions of deaths from treatable illness. This insurance company abuse costs America up to $1 trillion a year. The obscene corporate profit is paid by everyone who sees a doctor or takes a pill. This is reality.
This is another clear example of the GOP tactic of falsely accusing others of doing what they are factually doing.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act does create competition in the Insurance industry, a free market, and gives Americans choices. That is the opposite of “Government takeover”. The ACA also caps profits at 15%. This free market will no doubt cut heavily into corporate profits thus the push back from the rich who care nothing about the suffering and death their systems create.
The Koch funded Tea Party line that the ACA is a bad thing is nothing more than corporate lies to preserve a system of making the rich richer at the cost of 98% of Americans.
Fact: The marketplace was created on October 1st, 2013. The market is only 2 days old at this point.
Just like the claims about the non-existent Obamacare, these corporate puppets in Washington have been claiming that something that did not exist is failing. Koch funded Tea Party has claimed since 2009 that the market has failed. Again, until yesterday, the market did not exist.
Another myth: “Defund Obamacare”. Consider “Defund Speed limits”. That does not change speed limits on the highway. Defunding health insurance regulations does not change the law. Everyone still must obey the law or face the consequences.
Another myth: repeal of Obamacare will save money. Fact: Obamacare saved over $716 million a year in government waste, pure corporate profit for doing nothing. Repealing Obamacare would put that tax money back into private corporate coffers.
Many many other myths exist. Since this is a post and not a dissertation I will stop here.
General principle: If the GOP accuses the democrats of doing something evil, it is to draw attention away from the fact that the GOP is doing that very thing.
Thanks for telling it like it is!
