Obama And Democrats Rush To Protect Their Precious Obamacare After TX Ruling

Depending upon who you ask, Obamacare has either been the very best or the very worst thing that could happen to healthcare across the United States. Quite honestly, I’m in the “it’s the worst ever camp” because I could see that it would cause problems on multiple levels from the start. And, as Kim wrote here, it has for many of us. With Judge O’Connor’s ruling, the Democrats and Obama rushed to the microphones to assure us there is “nothing to see here, move along folks!”

But Democrats, who have seen the law survive scores of legal and legislative attacks, vowed to fight back, saying the health coverage of millions of Americans is at stake.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer tweeted that Republicans had pretended to care about those protected by Obamacare “while quietly trying to remove that support in the courts. Next year, we will force votes to expose their lies.”

I have to laugh at Chuckie’s assertion that Republicans are the ones with activist judges when reality says otherwise. The narrative from the Democrats is this: Trump! Courts! MEAN!

Democratic Representative Joe Kennedy said “they found one judge to agree, and now Medicaid expansion could be gone, pre-existing condition protections could be wiped out, prices skyrocket and millions lose insurance. And they call that success.”

With this ruling, we are all gonna DIE!

Wait, wut? I thought it was net neutrality that was going to be the most epic killer of all time. It’s so hard to keep track, y’all.

The narrative from the “I really am/was/not/maybe/DNA says so” Indian senator person is that Republicans are sneaky liars who don’t care about healthcare for all. Yes, my eyes are rolling so hard right now.

Kamala Harris doesn’t understand the difference between health care and health insurance, and once again shows her Constitutional ignorance in attempting to blame Trump and nineteen GOP Attorneys General for this ruling.

Then, of course, Trump discusses Obamacare.

Far too many Americans are having a terrible time getting adequate health insurance under Obamacare. Kim gave us one example. I have seen all healthcare costs go up as well. A good friend finally paid a healthcare broker to get some insurance that was barely affordable. However, to get care for a medical issue, she had to go through NINE different doctors to finally find one that would work with that insurance instead of having to pay thousands out of pocket. NINE doctors, because even though the plan she bought said the majority of the doctors were in the plan’s network, they weren’t and never had been in some cases.

THAT is one of the things that Obamacare has wrought. Insurance that is hideously expensive. Insurance that doesn’t provide the coverage it says it will, and doctors who refuse to work with certain insurance plans because of the costs to them.

But we must save our PRECIOUS!! Cue an Obama lecture.

Hey, at least it was a short lecture this time. So that’s something. He’s oh-so-worried about all of those with pre-existing conditions surviving under this ruling, but what about that promise he spouted about liking and keeping our doctors? Yeah, once Obamacare kicked in, that lasted about .00096 nanoseconds.

What about Obamacare being Affordable? Hahahaha… It really does need to be named the “Hideously Expensive Healthcare Act.” Keep in mind, one key aspect of the ruling is this:

Judge Reed O’Connor reasoned: (1) because Congress has repealed the penalty assessed against those who decline to buy health insurance, the Individual Mandate can no longer be fairly read as an exercise of Congress’s Tax Power; (2) because the Individual Mandate could only be justified constitutionally as an exercise of the Tax Power, the Mandate is now unconstitutional; (3) because the Individual Mandate is “inseverable” from the entirety of Obamacare, the entire Act must fall.

As Paul shows, many legal experts are weighing in on this decision. There is a great deal to unpack regarding Judge O’Connor’s decision and how it will truly impact Obamacare. However, that won’t stop the Obama Democrat narrative of Trump! Republicans! Courts! MEAN! from spinning with all their might.

Why? Because Obama’s legacy of failures must be saved at all costs!

    “Why is Mr. Trump paying attention to that column caravan of foreign folk, they’re MONTHS away, and the
    whole thing is a nothingburger anyway!!!”
    Well Barry, “Elections have consequences”. Now get back to your Charitable foundation, and “Presidential” center!

    Socialized healthcare never worked for long. Quality goes way down.
    If anyone likes it now, they won’t eventually.

    We need to get back to where you pay your doctor directly for his services.Remember during the depression when no one had any money and they would pay in chickens or bread, or something. I’d love to see all the insurance disappear except for a true catastrophic plan.They would be incredibly cheap and all the extra money you weren’t paying to the insurance company could be used to pay your doctor. Sadly our nation has no idea how insurance is supposed to work.
