As the Main Stream Media and the rest of the Hillary sycophantic minions obsess over Donald J. Trump’s right as an American Citizen and Private Businessman to take advantage of American Tax laws to his benefit, everyone’s favorite ex-Presidential Skirt-Chaser, ol’ Bubba, dropped a Truth Bomb, as the late, great Professional Wrestler Dusty Rhodes used to say, “…in public…if you will”.
The New York Post reports that
Bill Clinton, the husband of the Democratic presidential nominee, knocked President Obama’s signature piece of legislation — the health-care law Obamacare — as being “the craziest thing in the world.”
“You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care, and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half and it’s the craziest thing in the world,” the former president railed at a rally in Michigan on Monday.
Clinton also said the system is hurting moderately successful small businesses — the ones that aren’t doing poorly enough to be subsidized and fall just above the line.
“On the other hand, the current system works fine if you’re eligible for Medicaid, if you’re a lower-income working person. If you’re already on Medicare or if you get enough subsidies on a modest income that you can afford your health care,” Clinton said.
“But the people getting killed in this deal are the small-business people and individuals who make just a little bit too much to get any of these subsidies,” he added.
The criticism comes as the Washington Free Beacon uncovered private audio of Hillary Clinton also knocking Obama’s legacy legislation.
The health care bill “has done a lot of good, but I’m gonna fix some of the things that need fixing. It’s like any other new program,” Clinton told donors on the private audio.
As Bruce Willis quipped in the movie “Die Hard”,
Welcome to the party, pal!
Way back on October 24, 2013, I wrote the following now-prophetic musing…
The RMS Titanic was the second of three unbelievably large, luxurious ships built by White Star Line. It took nearly three years to build the Titanic, a massive undertaking which began on March 31, 1909 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. When finished, the Titanic was the largest movable object ever made. It was 882 1/2 feet long, 92 1/2 feet wide, 175 feet high, and displaced 66,000 tons of water.
After conducting the last of her sea trials on April 2, 1912, the Titanic left later that same day for Southampton, England to hire a crew and to be loaded with supplies.
On the morning of April 10, 1912, to much ballyhoo and fanfare, 914 passengers boarded the Titanic. At noon, the ship left port and headed for Cherbourg, France, where it made a quick stop before heading to Queenstown (now called Cobh) in Ireland. At these stops, a handful of people got off and a few hundred boarded the Titanic. By the time the Titanic left Queenstown at 1:30 p.m. on April 11, 1912 heading for New York, she was carrying over 2,200 people, both passengers and crew.
You know the rest of this story. This “Marvel of Modern (1912) Technology”, the unsinkable Titanic, sank on April 15th, 1912, after hitting an ice berg.
In all, a total of 705 people were rescued while 1,517 perished in the freezing waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Now, 101 years later. America is watching our Generation’s version of the sinking of the “unsinkable” Titanic: The launch of the State-Run Healthcare System, commonly called “Obamacare”.
Three weeks ago, the largest Government Intrusion into the private lives of Americans ever conceived of, was launched, with much ballyhoo and fanfare, just like the RMS Titanic.
Its Captain, President Barack Hussein Obama, being supremely confidant in the sturdiness of the ship he was piloting, ignored the warnings of Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Mike Lee, and, it now appears, HHS Secretary Sebelius’ claims notwithstanding, the warnings of his own staff, that the “USS Obamacare” was not sea-worthy, and its launch should be delayed.
Now, as the bow of the USS Obamacare, the website healthcare.gov, begins its downward spiral, leading the rest of the USS Obamacare into the icy waters of oblivion, its “crew” are beginning to jump off of the USS Obamacare….like rats on a sinking ship.
As the reign of King Barack The First comes to a merciful end, everything that those of us who actually did our research and/or had experience in the Medical and Health Insurance Industries predicted has come true.
The National Healthcare Act, known as Obamacare, has failed miserably, now resembling a slow-sinking Titanic, whose lights are slowly submerging into a cold, dark, deep ocean of poorly-managed, unneeded, government red tape and mindless bureaucracy.
From the failure of its launch to the exiting of National Health Insurance Providers from its Exchanges to its unaffordable rates, which continue to increase, Obamacare, as predicted, has become an unsustainable boondoggle and a burden that the American Taxpayers should not have been forced to bear in the first place.
And, boys and girls, if you belief that Bubba’s Wife will do anything about it, I want to sell you a cleaning solution that is great for getting unsightly stains out of blue dresses.
When Hil was running for the Democrat President Nomination in 2007, she announced her vision of the future of America’s Healthcare.
From foxnews.com, posted on 9/17/2007:
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Monday proposed a health care plan that would require every American to have health insurance just like states require drivers to buy auto insurance.
The so-called “individual mandate” — the centerpiece of her “American Health Choices Plan” — would cost the federal government $110 billion a year and would help provide coverage for 47 million Americans without health care coverage. It is similar to a proposal offered by rival John Edwards. Barack Obama’s health care plan does not have the same mandate.
“I believe everyone — every man, woman and child — should have quality, affordable health care in America,” the New York senator told an audience in Iowa, vowing to accomplish the goal in her first term.
Clinton’s plan is comprised of four main pillars:
— Offering new coverage choices for the insured and uninsured and guaranteeing quality coverage;
— Lowering premiums by removing hidden taxes, stressing prevention and increasing security by ensuring that job loss or family illness won’t lead to a loss of coverage;
— Promoting shared responsibility among individuals, providers, employers and government, and forcing insurance and drug companies to end discrimination based on pre-existing conditions and price gauging; and
— Ensuring affordable health coverage for all by providing tax relief, limiting premium payments to a percentage of income and strengthening Medicaid.
So, we can therefore extrapolate that, if the Queen of Mean, the Benghazi Bi…err…Bombshell, Hillary Rodham Clinton, becomes President, a Washington-run Single-Payer National Healthcare System is in our future.
As Charles Barkley has said about the Democrats:
Poor people have been voting for the Democrats for 50 years…and they’re still poor!
And, if Hil gets in, she will continue the journey Obama has started our nation on…and then, we will ALL BE POOR.
Until He Comes,
