Today on the radio, I listened to a Senator who is a medical doctor talking about Obamacare. He said that he chaired a committee on medical insurance and they came up with a law that TRULY was affordable and less than 200 pages(as opposed to 23,000) and it also covered pre-existing conditions. It sounded very sensible and easy to understand. I couldn't hear it all because someone was talking to me. I'm going to search around on the internet and see if I can find out anything about it. I cannot believe this is going to happen. More and more democrats are separating themselves from it. Why can't the liberals understand that if the people in Washington have exempted themselves from it, there is something WRONG with it? What is wrong with them?????<quoted text>
Sharpton just continues to embarrass himself,(psst, hey Al, the US is a Constitutional Republic, ole buddy, not a democracy). And it still stuns me that MSNBC gave a man of his reputation and with his background a show to highlight his ignorance on national television.
And since he brought it up. That "preexisting condition" section of Obamacare is symptomatic of the whole thing. As of 2013, only 29% of the projected number of people have signed up for the program. And yet, despite less than a third of the estimated number signing up, they have had to close the program to any new enrollees because the cost has already been 2 1/2 times the original projected costs. Surprise, surprise, surprise.
I just remembered. That same doctor stated that the healthcare law shouldn't be a democrat law or a republican law. It should have been a collarboration of both parties. Instead, it's a one party law and was forced through and hoisted on the people. Everytime I think about it, it infuriates me.
