The first order of business for the new Congress is the repeal of Obamacare. The American people demand it. The only people who seem to be happy with Obama’s signature achievement are those who are rich or getting it for free, or nearly free.
Dig a little deeper you will find that the bleeding-heart liberal rich with their on-call concierge physicians or so-called Cadillac plans are the only ones truly happy because they are unaffected. Those who get Obamacare free through the expansion of Medicaid, or nearly free, have found it is a trap because fewer and fewer doctors are willing to take these patients. The doctors who do require long waits. It’s call rationing which is a hallmark of socialized medicine or Obamacare-Lite, as the case may be.
For the average guy or gal, Obamacare has been a disaster. My cousin Lori is a case in point. As an adjunct college professor she was informed that she would no longer be eligible for company health benefits for 2017. The college then offered her the ability to self-pay through Obamacare.
In Lori’s state, Kansas, she discovered that she would have to shell out $5,000 dollars for the privilege of paying another $5,000 in deductibles for a policy that offered everything from soup to nuts — abortions to psychiatric care, etc. — assuming she got past the additional $10,000 initial expense. And they had the nerve to call it The Affordable Care Act! That means well checkups, prescriptions, doctor visits, tests, etc would be on her dime. For most middle class workers, this makes no sense.
