If the program was passed through coercion, noble lies, and subterfuge, and ushered in with the same, why would anyone believe it will not operate in the same spirit and practice? Why should everyone who has insurance expect to believe that he was simply given it and that everyone who doesn’t was deprived of it, when millions made difficult and costly choices not to play the odds while at least a few million others in no different circumstances embraced different choices?
To counter all of the above, Obamacare would have to assume that it is hip, knows best, is not worried about Neanderthal human nature, and has the power to force what it wishes anyway—and there we have what we have.
Obamacare and Human Nature |
The early experience with the ACA shows disregard for human dignity in all these ways. In its very conception, it reduces freedom in an unprecedented way: by forcing people to purchase a product or face an increasingly steep financial penalty if they don’t. It refuses to allow them to choose how to go about taking care of one of the most personal of commodities: their bodily health. They may do it only by purchasing health insurance (which, by the way, is not synonymous with health care). Further, they may for the most part purchase only the kind of insurance coverage approved by the federal government. It is likely to reduce their health care choices further by limiting who can be their medical practitioners. In effect, the ACA tells people that they are unintelligent or ignorant; they cannot be trusted to make their own health care decisions.

I'm just happy to see he's not wiling to harm his family to stay true to his foolish rhetoric (although I have enjoyed the spate of confused rightwing speculations that "maybe he chose it because it's the worst option for his family and now he can really attack Obamacare!" as if deliberately hurting his family to score a political point is something they desire in a candidate).
Good for him for making the right choice for his family. Now, the fact that he wants to harms others' families to advance his political career--well that is a problem. But at least he's not as terrible as he could be. Somehow that's refreshing.
if you know anything about cobra it is outrageously expensive. given that she probably had a golden Cadillac plan it would have cost a fortune.
you obviously don't know what you are talking about and just want to rant.
also cobra is only good for like a year and then it drops off.
you also failed to get the fact that he is REQUIRED BY LAW to buy and obamacare plan. all people in congress including Obama himself is required to get an obamacare plan.
no I am just informed about what I am talking about unlike you.
