The goal for the Democrats never was to use ObamaCare to insure the uninsured.
It was to get the camel’s nose under the tent flap, meaning once ObamaCare was passed, the left could gradually build upon its failures until they have the program they wanted in the first place: single payer.
While Obama says you can keep your health care plan if you like it, if employers drop it, you can’t:
A report from the House Ways and Means Committee finds that 71 of the nation’s top 100 companies would find it far more economical to drop their health care plans and simply pay the penalty for not complying with the Obamacare employer insurance mandate.
The report, published May 1, surveyed 71 of the 100 companies in the Fortune 100 list of large corporations and finds that all of them would save considerable amounts of money by dropping their health care coverage instead of complying with the Obamacare insurance mandate.
“According to data provided by the 71 Fortune 100 companies that responded to the inquiry, they could save a total of $28.6 billion in 2014 alone if they stopped offering health insurance to their U.S. employees and instead paid the employer mandate penalty for not doing so,” the report said.
“In the highly competitive global market in which these Fortune 100 companies operate, it is unrealistic for them not to consider the more economical choice of dumping health coverage and telling their employees to purchase health insurance through the Exchanges.”
And when employers start dropping health care, the left will demonize them as caring only about the bottom line and push once again for a public option or single payer.
As I pointed out before, the endgame was government run healthcare, and they don’t mind taking babysteps to get it:
You can sit back and believe the lies of the Democrat President, Congressmen and Senators, or you can hear them speak the truth in the video above and understand the true goal: total control of healthcare on a federal level.
Watch all of the Schakowsky video. Hear her say she is a advocate of single payer. Hear her say, “This is not a principled fight.” These are her words:
Barney Frank says he’s “all for it” and wishes it wasn’t off the table, but says the public option is the way to get it:
If you believe what the Democrats are saying to main stream America when it comes to health care, you are a fool. This is the camel’s nose.
