Republicans, itís past time to euthanize Obamacare
02.16.17 10:01 PM
Let us first get to the brass tacks. The Obamacare bill illegally passed by the Obama Democrats in 2009 was never about healthcare. It was a collectivistís dream designed to pigeonhole Americans into a one-size-fits-all system that controlled health choices, fund leftist pet causes (baby murder, aka abortion), destroy the middle class and force everyone to purchase services from select crony corporations with the promise said crony corporations would receive unlimited funding from the federal treasury.
Over the next seven-plus years Republicans made 52 token efforts to repeal it. Their efforts were never serious. They just knew it would make for good press back home. It was politics, pure and simple.
Republican politicians promised ad nauseum that they would end Obamacare immediately if onlyÖ
And then began the hemming and hawing.
That there was never any intent to repeal Obamacare becomes patently obvious as establishment Republicans are still without agreement on a repeal plan. And rather than crafting a clean bill that would create a free market healthcare system, Republicans are scrambling to figure a way to sneak in more regulations, more bureaucracy and more sop for their handlers.
Senator Rand Paul isnít buying it. He walked out of a Tuesday meeting of top legislative Republicans on Tuesday after he heard ďthings that are unacceptable to me,Ē including expanding so-called entitlements.
On Wednesday Paul joined with South Carolina Representative Mark Sanford to introduce a bill to replace Obamacare. The House Freedom Caucus Ė some 40 conservative members of Congress Ė support the bill.
According to The Daily Signal, the Paul/Sanford bill:
…focuses heavily on the expansion of health savings accounts (HSAs), which are medical savings accounts. Their legislation allows consumers to contribute an unlimited amount annually to HSAs. Currently, consumers can contribute a maximum of $3,400 per year.Thereís no way the bill will make it to the Presidentís desk by February 20. But itís way past time for the Obamacare deathcare system to be euthanized.
The Paul/Sanford bill is a move toward freedom of choice in *healthcare, which is good for liberty.
