Tens of thousands lost their doctors. Millions of American lost their insurance. Millions more now pay substantially more out of their own pockets for health insurance for substantially less benefit. Yet, Obama this week claimed that Obamacare Works. The only measure that indicates that this program works is that some insurance companies are making a lot more profit than they were before this program was enacted. The program does not work, has never worked and costs lives, and livelihoods.
Congress has the numbers and the power to abolish this program and override a veto as it remains so unpopular that even senate democrats will vote to abolish it, if they are presented with the bill as a campaign issue. The insurance companies that are making more lobby to keep Obamacare, often more out of fear than true desire. ABC, NBC, CBS, and MSNBC all continue to support it because it fits their agenda and provides ad dollars from the insurance companies. In fact, these outlets are as responsible for this law remaining in effect as is Congress.
Obamacare won’t pay for a head transplant, (we can understand why this is experimental) but cutting out the best cancer drugs and doctors has already caused the loss of life. Every time one of these stories is ignored by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, or FOX News these organizations along with Congress are responsible for murder. Most of the media ignores the truth and continues to put out false information about these programs.
Whether they do so because they improve their profits, or because of ideology, or because of political pressure does not matter. They are, by law, supposed to foster the public good. This is one area among many where they have not only fostered public harm, but continue to do so. As Obama Praises Obamacare this week, none of them challenged him, or publically excoriated a program that continues to harm Americans by the millions. By that standard their license to be on the airwaves should be revoked.
Congress needs to cancel this program lock stock and barrel. Pay for play in this area continues to cost American lives and make millions of Americans poorer and at greater health risk than ever before. It is almost impossible to boycott every news organization but every Congressman that does not successfully repeal this law needs to be voted out. Period. Every candidate that does not actively work toward its repeal needs to be not elected. It is time to take back our lives in this area.
