If Obamacare is supposed to be good, why are we currently sitting with 733 waivers handed out to companies that demonstrate an inability to afford it? The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has now announced that with the implementation of Obamacare over the next decade that they expect a loss of .5% of all jobs… Half a percent doesn’t sound big until you follow the math which amounts to a total of 800,000 jobs will be lost over a decade. Think about that for a moment… regardless of any other economic factors, regardless of any industrial collapses, we can know for certain that 800,000 more jobs will be either lost or eliminated. Where is the value in Obamacare again?
I’m tired of hearing that this is the only way and that there are no other suggestions. Republicans have offered many ideas of where to regulate or change the existing healthcare system without mandating government intervention. Several times there were fully comprehensive plans brought to the floor in the House that were completely ignored by the Pelosi-led Congress during the lead-up to the Obamacare bill hitting the floor for a vote… no debate, just a vote! Remember the whole “You have to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill” garbage? This is why we have a process in Congress for proper passage of bills… and this is why a discovery phase and proper debate is so crucial for thoroughly vetted and Constitutional bill.
