A recent letter said we have an obligation to point out injustice when we see it.
The first injustice was the baldfaced lie, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” Verifiable cancellation numbers are now over 4 million!
The second injustice was how the law was supposedly passed. Obamacare was allegedly signed into law in March 2010. If you recall, Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic majority in the House of Representatives was unable to pass their version of a healthcare law. Because all revenue bills have to originate in the House, the Senate found a bill that met those qualifications: HR3590, a military housing bill. They essentially stripped the bill of its original language and turned it into the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), aka Obamacare.
The next injustice was how the President has chosen to enforce parts of the law or literally, rewrite it as he pleases! Changing enforcement deadlines have and will keep things quiet till after elections. According to his oath of office, the President shall take care that the laws are faithfully executed, as per Article II Section 3 of the Constitution. The Legislative Branch is the only branch which creates law, as per the Constitution!
Then, the Supreme Court decides to hear the case. Exactly, which law were they ruling on, since it was rewritten by the President so many times it didn’t even resemble the original one? Their eventual ruling was an open and hostile violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers by the U.S. Supreme Court to not only rewrite ObamaCare, but to simultaneously unite the power of making and interpreting law into their own unelected hands.
Next, Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report says that under the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, 30 million non-elderly Americans will remain without health insurance up until 2022.
One of the main arguments the Obama administration made for passing the Affordable Care Act was that it would provide coverage for the uninsured.
Next, President Obama’s promise on the campaign trail to enact a healthcare law that would “cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”
People signing up are reporting premiums of several hundred dollars per month with deductibles of several thousand dollars each for treatment and medicine!
People who had coverage and were being treated for cancer, for example, are being told by their providers they can no longer treat them, essentially giving them a death sentence! Any injustice there folks?
Next, our embarrassment of a senator, Patty Murray, on the floor of OUR Senate, calling the people who claim they are having numerous problems with Obamacare liars!
Then let’s mention the abysmal screening process for processors! There are convicted criminals gathering sensitive personal information. At least 43 convicted criminals are working as Obamacare navigators in California, including three individuals with records of significant financial crimes. Where else are they? Talk about the potential for identity theft!
I agree there is plenty of injustice, but not the imagined kind the writer created.
