The Villians, Thieves and Scoundrels Union

2 Oct

The 27th Amendment was ratified in 1992 to prevent senators and House members from boosting their own salaries before an election… But in reality this now means that Congress is the only class explicitly protected by the Constitution from financial pain in the event that they shut down the federal government and fail to fund regular government operations. Even their own congressional staff members will eventually have to be furloughed or go to work without the promise of getting paid even when the shutdown is over.

Meanwhile, in the real world CNBC polled two different groups, using “ObamaCare” for one and “Affordable Care Act” for the other. Forty-six percent of the group asked about “ObamaCare” opposed it while only 37% of those asked about the Affordable Care Act opposed that…even though they are the exact same thing!

The Affordable Care Act was passed into law over 2 years ago. It has survived over 40 votes to derail or defund it. It has weathered the scrutiny of the Supreme Court of the United States and been upheld as law. It has taken the national stage as an integral part of the last presidential election and its supporters, not its detractors won and were elected by a majority of American citizens to see it through. This is how democracy works.

The Affordable Healthcare Act changes nothing for about 240 million Americans who already have health insurance through an employer, or are enrolled in a government program like Medicare…but the millions of  other Americans who have no health coverage can begin shopping for health insurance on online marketplaces for a healthcare plan that they can afford…and just like automobile insurance which every American must have if they wish to own a car, all Americans must and will be able to find a healthcare plan that they can afford.

What is wrong with this? Why would anyone be against healthcare insurance for every American? Because of the cost? Do you have any idea what it costs to send 50 million Americans to hospital emergency rooms every year for their health coverage? Have you ever seen an emergency room bill? The great majority of those emergency room bills go unpaid and get passed on to the taxpayers now…with the Affordable Care Act that will end.

So why would providing affordable insurance that would be paid by the newly insured themselves along with the insurance companies who insure them… rather than the taxpayers who pay for it now, be a bad thing? Isn’t this what everyone has wanted all along? Especially the individual, freedom ringing, libertarian, capitalist loving, pull yourself up by your own bootstraps Republicans who had been clamoring for this kind of law before Mr. Obama became the President of the United States?

That’s what the Affordable Care Act does!

Read it!

Google it!

See for yourself exactly what the law provides for you, your children and all Americans.

Then ask yourself what these villains, thieves and scoundrels who have been demonizing it, misrepresenting it, and lieing about it for years are really after. And make no mistake about it because they, and not you will, be getting great healthcare and fantastic pay and benefits from you, the taxpayer, no matter how long they shut our government down…and they work and receive all of thier pay and benefits from OUR government! And they made sure of that by passing a LAW in 1992, exactly 2 government shutdowns ago!

It is unbelievable, unthinkable and unconscionable.

In fact it is exactly what you would expect from a Villain, Thief or Scoundrel…isn’t it?

And I have no doubt that they’re probably unionized too…Local 12, I suspect.
