Before the president speaks today and says the exact same things that he has said for the past 6 years, I just want to recap.
You can't keep your doctor.
You can't keep your plan.
There aren't cheaper options on the healthcare.gov website.
Even if people could get on the website, they wouldn't find cheaper options on the website.
People being a burden to their parents until they are 26 is not a good thing. That seems to be the only true and consistent thing that Obama puppets repeat about Obamacare.
It doesn't matter how many times anybody says, "The Affordable Care Act is helping millions of people," it isn't true.
Millions of people (over 6 million) have lost their health insurance. Around 100,000 have "signed up" for Obamacare, most of them have really signed up for Medicaid and none of them have paid anything.
Know why? The healthcare.gov site doesn't actually take payments.
It doesn't matter how many times someone says, "If Republicans would stop trying to destroy this law and get on board, things would go a lot better," it doesn't make that true either.
The government is so inefficient, corrupt and incompetent that it can't even operate a simple website. The administration is actually applauding the ability of healthcare.gov for handling 50,000 users.
Walmart.com handled 400 million users on Thursday alone.
Of course, Walmart has to make a profit in order to stay in business, something the government doesn't have to worry about.
Speaking of which I am sick of the notion that people who run companies are bad. They make things, they employ people and they earn their money.
But, somehow making ungodly salaries in the government is more noble. I just don't get that. Government workers seem to have no motive whatsoever to do things properly. They apparently can't get fired, no matter what laws they break. They don't get punished, no matter what they do.
Just wanted you to be ready, when you hear all of the exact same stuff that you have been hearing for years. It wasn't true then and it isn't true now.
Maybe there should be fewer speeches and more working on fixing this mess.
