Dear liberal friends,
Get a grip!
You have been lied to, deceived, and asked to stay supportive even as your health insurance costs have increased, or are getting ready to increase. It's not a matter of whether they will increase. It's when.
You are now going to pay more, and you can't keep your plan. You can't keep your doctor. And you may not be able to go to the hospital nearest your home. You may have to drive past the one closest to you to get to a hospital in “network,” and those specialty hospitals for illnesses like cancer will be at your own cost.
One of the reasons for these limitations is that insurance companies thought they were going to remain profitable because of all the people who would be signing up for Obamacare, and happily sharing the cost of covering everybody for everything.
Well, people are not signing up in droves and they are not happy, because of problems with the HealthCare.gov website, security issues and premium sticker shock.
Even worse! Some people are being caught in the Obamacare "gap" between insurance they had and insurance they can't yet get! So they are vulnerable until they can find a plan more expensive than what they had, or until they can find one on the Obamacare exchanges, which will also cost more because of mandated features they may not want or need.
Shortly after President Obama was elected for his first term, he reminded the Republicans that "I'm the president." This was during a photo-op pretending to listen to the other side of the aisle on the national debt and other issues, and the critical need to stop the spending.
He didn't listen.
On another occasion, President Obama reminded the Republicans in Congress and the rest of us that he won re-election. He did win by a narrow popular vote margin. But he and his administration thought that was a mandate to push through his tax-and-spend, anti-economic growth and regulatory tyranny agenda on the nation without being noticed or challenged.
Well Mr. President, the 48 percent of us that did not vote for you noticed! And we are not being quiet about it. It's our constitutional right!
Some of my liberal friends are waking up. They include Democrat voters, independents who voted for Obama, young people under the age of 35, and conservatives who thought he might be another JFK-like leader. He's no JFK and he's no leader.
Just like the mainstream media and congressional Democrats, many of my liberal friends have constantly made excuses for Obama and his administration's failures and lingering scandals. But the failure of Obamacare, the deception, and the parade of scams we are finding out about cannot be excused.
Outrage by conservatives is not new. But many liberals and Obama supporters have openly expressed disappointment and betrayal. They are waking up!
Many of you still do not regret how you voted in the last two presidential elections. That was your choice. But you can now choose to stop drinking the Kool-Aid of excuses for the Obamacare train wreck, which is only going to get worse.
I'm not suggesting that those of you who are now awakened from the slick and elusive presidential rhetoric blindly vote Republican or declare yourselves conservative. No, because Republicans and constitutionally minded conservatives need to earn your vote. And yes, they have and have had an alternative to Obamacare all along, but the Democrats and the mainstream media didn't want you to know about it.
But for now, join the chorus of voices that are screaming, "Stop the train wreck. Start over!" It's not about political party, and it should not be about political power.
It's about the people, and the nation is hurting.
