Obamacare is dead. Or it will be when the Supremes finally administer the coup de grace. So what comes after Obamacare?
Would you believe Boehnercare?
What is it?
It is the plan that is now circulating for when the Supremes strike down Obamacare. The Republicans want to take the “popular” aspects of Obamacare and make them Boehnercare.
Is brain death a prerequisite for becoming a leader in the Republican Party?
Mr. Boehner, if Obamacare is unconstitutional, what the hell makes you think your version of it will be?
The Republicans want to bribe the voters with the so-called popular provisions, such as allowing your kids to live in your basement and stay on your insurance until they are 26 or the coverage of preexisting conditions.
Allegedly they want to keep healthcare affordable.
If you want to make healthcare affordable, there is one foolproof system that will work every time. It is called the free market.
Not only does it work, we have proof. If you need to see the free market at work, look at vision correction, AKA Lasik.
When Lasik first appeared on the scene, treatments cost $10,000. Today it is $199 an eye and the doctor will finance it for you.
It is simple. Health insurance does not cover Lasik. Health insurance distorts and destroys the free market. Healthcare consumers neither know nor care what the costs of healthcare are. All they know is what their copay and deductable are. That is it.
The Republicans in Washington are talking about using government to try and keep healthcare costs down. If you are not terrified of that, you should be.
Washington’s competence ends at the level of managing a two-moon outhouse.
If Boehner and company pander this way, all we will be getting is Obamacare lite. Government is never the solution. It is the problem.
All this proves is that Boehner and company are big government Republicans. There is no commitment on their part to reduce the size of government. We can’t even afford the level of government we currently have.
Our debt exceeds that of all of Europe combined. Debt is a far greater enemy than the lack of a government healthcare program.
When will the Republicans ever learn?
They have bought into the myth that we must make certain that everyone has health insurance.
Health Insurance is what is making healthcare more expensive. Healthcare is not the issue. Making healthcare inexpensive so that the average American can pay out of their pocket. The Republicans have fallen for it. The debate should be how could we use the free market to make medical care affordable, more efficient and more cutting edge.
By buying into the left’s line that the issue is the number of uninsured, we have lost.
If the Republicans put parts of Obamacare back in, this time as Boehnercare, we will destroy the budget and we will set the platform for socialist healthcare in ten years.
It will just be easier for them next time.
John Boehner behaves in ways consistent with a belief that our problems resulting from government intrusion into our lives could be solved by implementing policies that strengthen government's ability to intrude into our lives. It never seems to occur to him and his tribe that central government is the problem and that problem can be resolved only by returning power stolen from the States and the people to the States and the people. Such men suffer from a lack of belief that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Just another reason why I am trying to extract guarantees from my representative that should the Repblicans retain power in the House, John Boehner will NOT even be considered for the leadership position. It's time for some young; conservative blood to lead the House and the Senate through a change in habits.
These people have not allowed the free market system to work for long they have forgotten how it works and that it does work.
That is what I said a few months ago about copays and deductibiles, and several members dragged me over the coals about it...supposed experts. I should have deleted them! Anyone who has ever deciphered an insurance statement knows. Doctors accept the billing that the insurance company allows and write off the rest. What happens when bad debt is written off? It becomes a tax deduction! Write off enough bad debt and you don't pay any taxes for that year! It's a racket!
We have to get all those brain-dead zombies out of Washington. It's our country and they think they can lead us like sheep. Keep it up you ignorant legislaters and the people will put you out on the street. Looks like a good time for a third party.........Tea Party???
What does it take for these idiots in Washington to get the message that we reject socialism? Maybe when the Tea Party is successful in defeating first class RINO Orin Hatch in the GOP primary, the message will finally be sent.
I will be writing Boehner as well as everyone of my Senators. Judson, it will pretty much say what you have say here.
Boehner Must Go!
I don't know why you continue to bash the Republican leadership. They are almost as values bankrupt as the leadership of the Democratic Party. I don't know why you don't concentrate on pushing candidates that share most of the values of the tea party people and stop looking for perfection in those candidates . This mess can only be changed over to long haul and we will have to undermine the Democratic and Republican leadership to do so.
Boehner is part of the establishment that needs to be flushed away. Free market ideas typically are not readily accepted by any politicians. They think they need to be the originators of innovation. Not much difference between Reid and Boehner right now anyway. Look at his track record. THE SLEEPING GIANT WILL AGAIN WAKE UP AS HE DID IN 2010. In Wisconsin before the 2010 elections the Dems had control of both House and Senate and were trying to pass all kinds of ugly anti-business legislation and giving more power to the unions. They were holding proceedings in the wee hours of the night but they couldn't agree even then. After the 2010 elections they lost both House and Senate in the biggest political shift in history. When this shift happens on the national level the Conservatives will keep control of the House and take over control of the Senate. America will flourish but at the risk of another Civil war, race war. Unless someone can educate the Obama zombies, there will be riots, cities will burn.
Boehner is a kingpin in the shredding of our constitution.
What Boehner does not realize is that once shredded, the Congress does not exist and he is out of a Job and all Business Owners will be pissed enough never to hire him. He will be relegated to the lunch line down on Uncle Sam's Plantation.
Oops, the Constitution is gone, there ain't no Uncle Same no mo. That boy has done gone and flew the coop.
There is nothing left in Washington but an assain assylum.
Oops, so has the Supreme's played their last song.
Now Governors, get off your rear ends and take care of the Country.
That is the game play for the future.
No Constitution - no damed Federal Government to have to deal with.
