    ObamaCare Doesn't Exist: Honest?

    Democracy and Power 108: Obfuscation

    Wherever politics intrudes upon economic life, political success is readily attained by saying what people like to hear rather than what is demonstrably true. Instead of safeguarding truth and honesty, the state then tends to become a major source of insincerity and mendacity. —Hans F. Sennholz

    ObamaCare Doesn't Exist: Honest?

    "There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can't sign up for Obamacare. You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It's private insurance,” said Senator Angus King (I-ME). King, who caucuses with the Democrats, deceitfully intended to blame the insurance companies for the government's coercive health insurance.

    In essence, the Maine Senator obfuscates, “There is no such thing as ...:”

    • Harry Reid's (D-NV) Senate passed ObamaCare.

    • Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) House passed ObamaCare.

    • President Obama (D-IL) signed ObamaCare into law.

    • The law mandates that everybody buys insurance.

    • The Health and Human Service bureaucracy mandates what the insurance policies must cover.

    • The law is enforced by the IRS.

    Appalling and abhorrent, the Senator from Maine has ineptly proved what a great thinker and observer of government said many years ago:

    *Instead of safeguarding truth and honesty, the state then tends to become a major source of insincerity and mendacity. *—Hans F. Sennholz

    The ACA has not been faithfully executed by this President. This admin does whatever it wants to. The propaganda machine is humming. They've set us against our fellow Americans. We see through the lies and are concerned about the future. They've mandated health insurance not health CARE and it's doomed to fail. Why? The majority of Americans will find their pockets have been picked and one by one they're waking up. Even my liberal family and friends are complaining.

    Oh yes. Obamacare really does exist. What's more, despite the many billions of dollars spent on behalf of conservative billionaires whom fund "grass roots" organizations like this one, news today shows that not only record numbers of people are signing up for Obamacare, but that its popularity is rapidly growing.
    If I had some advice for these billionaires is that if they really and truly think the money they spend somehow benefits the American people ( which I doubt since their spending is only meant to deepen their pockets) I would say that going after Obamacare is a list cause and you've just wasted a lot of money.

    Its time for Americans to wake up and realize that the corporatism that has taken over this country's politics needs to stop. Its not about "Smaller government and less taxes"- as this site tries to say. Its about thinking for ourselves and get big money OUT of politics.

    Politics ARE big money. Big business and corporations are like everyone else. Just looking out for number one. I don't mind capitalism, it's the reason a few folks actually have jobs. Jobs that aren't a part of BIG GOVERNMENT. The bigger it gets, the less freedom you'll have...to post opinions like this.

    And how exactly do you propose to "get big money OUT of politics"? Increasing the size and power of the government, which is the only policy Democrats follow consistently, only increases the incentive to lobby that government to apply its power for the benefit of those with money and political connections. Power corrupts. Therefore the only way to limit corruption is to limit that power.
