A Sad Day for America
The Supreme Court voted today 5-4 to uphold “ObamaCare.” To show that I am not a ranting Republican with a knee-jerk reaction to anything President Obama does, I will explain why the Republicans are also to blame for this ruling.
Do not forget that the heart and soul of “ObamaCare” came from a health care plan implemented in Massachusetts. Their health care plan is the “brainchild” of their former governor, Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney is a Republican.
The vote on the Supreme Court was 5-4 with the deciding vote being cast by Chief Justice John Roberts. He was appointed to the Supreme Court by former President George W. Bush. George W. Bush is a Republican.
The reason why it is a sad say for Americans is because this decision does NOTHING to encourage thriftiness in spending. It doesn’t answer why it costs $20 for a Tylenol at a hospital or why everything associated with healthcare (doctors, medicine, medical equipment, hospitals, malpractice attorneys) is so expensive. With “no insurance for me, thank you very much” no longer an option, insurance companies (the companies people say Democrats hate, but become the big winners under “Obamacare”) can raise rates because they now know that a person not carrying insurance is no longer an option.
This is why I am an independent. The political party says one thing but always seems to set the groundwork for the exact opposite. I don’t have to worry about leaders in my party undermining everything I believe in and they say they believe in.
My plan is the only plan that tries to tackle the costs of healthcare. Affordable health care means less money needed for insurance premiums and fewer taxes collected for Medicare and Medicaid. Both “ObamaCare” and “RomneyCare” will end up costing Americans more money out of their pockets than we are currently paying.
