There was an announcement today (April Fools Day) by NBC, ABC and others that Mr. Obama took a “Victory Lap” around the Rose Garden at the White House because on the last day to sign up for Obamacare without a fine of some kind, they have tallied over 7 million sign-ups. How many of them were folks that never had healthcare before? We will not talk about that. Never mind the fact that when the law went into effect over 6 million healthcare insurance owners LOST their insurance and are now scurrying to find something similar to what they had but unfortunately it is not as good and more expensive. Obama said, “It is the law, get used to it.”
As senior citizens trying to live on a moderated to low fixed income, my wife and I are outraged at the abuse heaped upon folks like us by our government. We have paid into “the system” all our lives and the very people that have sworn an oath to protect us and guard against harm from foreign and domestic enemies are the ones that have turned against us. We find it needful to embrace non-profit and non-partisan organizations to inform, enlist and inspire seniors to STOP the government take over of our healthcare. We lost all confidence in groups like AARP when they cut sweet deals for themselves in the back rooms of D.C. with elitist money-grubbing politicians to the hurt of millions of dues paying senior citizens. We say, “Shame on them all!”
According to an article in Bloomberg, the closer you look at Obamacare, the worse it appears to be. The Examiner says Obamacare is a stealth ambush of senior citizens. Forbes magazine has an article that says the States are rebelling against Obamacare. The Wall Street Journal tells us how Obamacare GUTS Medicare. Oh, but it is a great victory for some. What a world we are forced to live in.
