Plato once said “The worst of all deceptions is self-deception.” That the Republicans voted pro-ACA Democrats out is a myth. Article I Section 3 of the US Constitution reads “The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, (chosen by the Legislature) thereof, for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.” This clause was changed by the XVII Amendment (1913) and placed the election of Senators into the hands of the people. In November 2013 Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu stated “Hey, if you don’t like Obamacare, you can unelect me.” Thirty of the 60 senators who voted for Obamacare have now been voted out including Mary Landrieu and Barbara Boxer (D) has announced that she will not seek another term. It is evident that the Senate election flip was driven by unhappy voters and not a Republican House majority.
Democrats Chuck Schumer & Tom Harkin who voted for the Act now honestly admit that passing the ACA was a mistake. MIT/ACA architect Johnathan Gruber now regrets saying Americans don’t care about the uninsured and the Republican leadership has failed to educate the public on the adverse effects of government involvement in economics. In 2012 John Boehner was uncommitted in repealing or changing the ACA and in August of 2013 Adam Kinzinger (R) was more afraid of him & Republicans losing their jobs if they defunded Obamacare rather than the 300 companies that would later cut hours to avoid Obamacare or the countless companies that would be dropping spousal coverage, reducing benefits and increasing costs. Later, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) was scolded by voters (Sept 2013) after he lashed at Ted Cruz (R) for trying to defund Obamacare during budgetary negotiations. A few may have also been duped by the chain email “What will happen to taxes on Jan. 1, 2015?” One periodical took the email to task, discovered, stated and cited that many of those taxes were already in place, were false or were passed on a “bipartisan” basis.
Frédéric Bastiat wrote “When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” The only benefactors of the war on poverty are the politicians & the race baiters at the expense of Republican and Democrat voters killing each other over funding it. It’s time to set the record straight. The ACA does nothing more than create a new bureaucracy to strengthen the IRS to collect new taxes. I am more apt to succeed in administrating medicine to the dead or converting atheists through scripture than believing that that the Democrats are enamored of the ACA or that Republicans in shining armor are combatting it. In my opinion Pro-ACA voters should have no fear and anti-ACA voters should give up all hope, Obamacare is safe in the hands of Democratic despots and self-serving/selfish Republican cowards.
