RUSH: After the Republican Senate released their bill to repeal Obamacare, Barack Obama posted a long essay on Facebook. Typical of Obama, it was full of “intellectual” flowery rhetoric and BS.
It would be pointless to go through it line by line. Obama and the Democrats who shoved Obamacare down our throats – only want one thing: to save his wretched political legacy.
There’s no nice way to put this. Obama lied. He told us Obamacare would “lower the cost curve” of healthcare. It didn’t. He said premiums would go down, $2,500 a month. They didn’t. Many people can’t even afford their deductibles now.
Obama said over and over: If you liked your plan, you could keep your plan; and, if you liked your doctor, you could keep your doctor. Lie, and lie. Millions lost their plans and their doctors and had to pay more for worse coverage. Obama raised taxes to pay for Obamacare, then used the IRS to punish those who didn’t fall in line. Obamacare has literally crippled the American economy and American healthcare.
The individual mandate killed millions of full-time jobs. Other mandates made religious groups pay for policies that violated their faith, forcing them to sue for relief.
Obamacare cost America money, jobs, and medical care but mostly our freedom. Republicans are finally in position to repeal it. They must seize the day. They have to do what they promised and end this national nightmare. Once and for all.
