A few thoughts on Obamacare

If you've been following my posts on Facebook lately you might think I'm just a ticked off guy that doesn't like President Obama and I'd like his health care plan to fail.

You would be right.

I don't like President Obama. I warned people about him before the first election. I didn't like him then, and I don't like him now. Tell me, what's to like?

I'm ticked off because I don't like it when anyone lies to me, misinforms me, or misdirects me, on purpose, as the President has done for years now.

From the very beginning I've wanted this so called Affordable Health Care law to fail. Personally, I believe it's unconstitutional, no matter what the Supreme Court says. The entire law is a ruse. There is no way you can add millions of people, along with people with preexisting conditions, to the system and have prices go down as the President said they would. It's mathmatically impossible. It's a 'feel good' thing that has no possible way of working.

As we are all finding out, the dung is hitting the fan and it isn't pretty. Your tax dollars ($650,000,000) were used to build a web site that not only failed, but will never work unless they throw it out and start from scratch. It isn't secure, has no way to verify income, cannot deliver accurate information to the insurance companies, etc.

The health care in our nation has issues, but what we're now being offered is worse, far worse. There are some things in the law that I applaud, but sadly this administration has no way to properly offer them to the people.

I would love to see everyone in our great nation to have health care. Quite frankly, though, I've never heard of anyone being turned away from an emergency room who really needed care. As a pastor I've sat in emergency rooms with people for hours and seen with my own eyes people with no money and no insurance being cared for.

You and I don't have all the answers, but I bet if 'you and I' went to Washington and sat down together we could come up with something using common sense that would make more sense that this monstrosity.
