(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

ObamaKare: NOT Good Enough For Demorats But Good Enough For YOU


Washington Times columnist Dr Milton Wolf writes:


Becoming the most hypocritical politician in America is not an easy goal to achieve, but New York’s Rep. Anthony Weiner, a Democrat, is up to the task.

Earlier this year, the Obama administration began rewarding its union friends and others with an escape from the clutches of Obamacare. Now one of the most outspoken Obamacare supporters - the man who actually said, “I wrote the bill … the bill and I are one” wants his own “get out of jail free” card from this abominable law.

Obamacare is already leaving a trail of destruction. Despite promises to the contrary, Mr. Obama’s own Medicare chief actuary estimates that up to 20 million Americans may lose their current health insurance. Despite promises to the contrary, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates Obamacare will destroy 800,000 jobs. Despite promises to the contrary, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius recently admitted cooking the books by double-counting $500 billion toward both Medicare savings and Obamacare implementation funds and admitted that a major program within Obamacare, the CLASS Act, is - in her words - “totally unsustainable.” As a direct result of this government takeover, many insurance companies already have been forced to raise their premiums or drop out of the Medicare Advantage program, while others no longer offer policies for children, and still others have simply closed their doors.

So how does the White House respond to this unraveling? With more waivers. HHS acknowledges issuing 1,040 “get out of jail free” cards to unions and other friends. Five states have been graced with their very own Obamacare waivers, including Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, Tennessee and, newest pampered friend, Maine. Why Maine? According to the administration, Obamacare “has a reasonable likelihood of destabilizing the Maine individual health insurance market.”

Now Mr. Weiner wants in on the action. Why? He thinks escaping Obamacare would mean that New York City “can save money and have more control over its own destiny.” Regular Americans need not apply.

Such is the standard operating procedure for big-government types: Impose ever-increasing burdens on hardworking Americans who play by the rules and don’t have best friends in Washington or armies of lobbyists at their disposal or millions of dollars for campaign contributions. This sickening display shows that, at best, this administration is admitting that Obamacare is unraveling, in part, because its one-size-fits-all, big-government plan simply cannot accommodate all the unique needs of 310 million patients. At worst, its pay-for-play, politics-as-usual scheme is enriching administration cronies on the backs of everyone else. As Mr. Weiner said, “A lot of people who got waivers were … people who are our friends.”

The question remains: If Obamacare is such a great law, why does the White House keep exempting its best friends from it?

Why indeed?

And yet, just ask any granola-and-algae-spewing Leftist: Obama is still the Next Coming. It doesn't matter if he bombs little brown people. It doesn't matter if he insists that Brazil despoil its own shores with oil drilling. ObamaKare will still save us all. All of us in the United States, that is. It will buy us homes, seed our lawns, water our minds, repair our cochlear implants, reupholster our furniture, wipe our fetid brows, unzip our trousers and provide national hand-jobs all around. Hooray for Lockheed Martin!

I must ask, America, are the bulk of you so incredibly ignorant, truly ill-learned (not educated), gullible, emotive and just plain jejune?

I submit: apparently so.

Keep it up. Because so many of you Leftists make such wonderful pawns.

Check.

I'm particularly infuriated today because today Mr. AOW received notice of the coming hike in his health-insurance premium. Paying that premium will now require over one half of Mr. AOW's Social Security Disability check!

This is total BS. Companies are given waivers only if they can prove they can give better health care to it's employees.

Oh-so-correct, Ms Anonymous. No facts whatsoever. Merely pulled out of left field. The Demorats love ObakaKare. So: why are THEY not held to this standard? Why is Congress NOT completely subscribed to ObakaKare? Why should THEY have the ability to opt out?

By the way, Ms Anon, where's your e-mail so that me and my readers might respond to your thoughts and opinions? How about your blog, so that we might respond in your comment section?

Yeah. Right. Thought so.
