The other day Barrack Obama day spoke out against GOP efforts to repeal Obamacare. He sounded the alarm in the way that Democrats are so skilled at doing. He sounded the clarion call, and told lawmakers to “champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirmed.” Mr. Obama declared that the new bill is “a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America.” It is not any transfer of wealth. That is absolutely false! You do not have to even like the bill to recognize that that is a lie. You can always count on this gentleman to gin up the masses by playing the class warfare game though. He said it is not a health care bill, and he called on his supporters to oppose the “fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.” Did you get that? The bill is mean! It is not missing some key elements, not failing to address certain issues, not failing to put enough money, or any of the other reliable age old Democrat arguments. Its mean! In other words, the purpose of the bill is to inflict pain on the people. Those evil republican! Obama certainly has not lost his penchant for Demagoguery. It is a lifelong skill that has served him well, and a few months out of office is not going to cause him to give it up. He is as dignified as ever in the delivery of his poison. His ability to manipulate while simultaneously coming across as compassionate cannot be outdone. This guy is good. But let us not forget that this is the same Barrack Obama who assured people, knowing that it was not true, that they would not lose their doctors. This is the same Barrack Obama who told people over and over again, knowing that it was not true, that they would never lose their health insurance plans. This is the same Barrack Obama who told people, knowing that it was not true, that the price of their premiums will drop by twenty five hundred dollars. This is the same Barrack Obama who assured the nation over, and over again that the individual mandate was not a tax, then argued that it was a tax before the Supreme Court. His administration then gave the IRS the power to withhold money from the tax returns of anyone who did not purchase a plan. This is the same Barrack Obama who, in order to win over Democrats who were hesitant about voting for Obamacare because of abortion concerns, assured them that no public money would go towards the funding of abortions. This is the same Barrack Obama whose lawyers in the justice department were ordered by a judge to take an ethics course because of their chicanery and duplicity before the courts. But who cares about all of that right? He is a Democrat, fighting for the little guy, no special interests involved, just the spirit of altruism. For that he, nor the rest of them will be held accountable. Apart from all of that he is the first black President of the United States, and that supersedes all of the negatives that could be said about his highness. His supporters will continue to do obeisance to his lordship.
Not to be outdone by the former President, his allies in the Senate, people like Bernie Sanders, and Chuck Schumer assure us that Armageddon will ensue if the Obamacare is repealed. They guarantee us that gazillions will die, women will be denied critical care and have to give up control of their bodies to old white men, babies will be eaten alive, and old people will be drowned if the Republican bill passes. In the meantime, not one single reporter has asked anyone of these charlatans, if all of the horrific scenarios that they keep laying out were not happening before the passage of Obamacare, why would they happen if it is repealed. You see that would involve an act of journalism. These people are not journalists, they are advocates of the leftist agenda, and as long as the Democrats continue to do their bidding, it is all that matters. Ideas matter little in this debate. The usual tactics in the overall strategy is employed over, and over, and over again. Destroy the character of anyone who disagrees, sully the good names of decent people if it means advancing the leftist cause, nothing is outside the bounds.
People do not have to agree with the decision to repeal Obamacare. They do not have to like the Republican plan, but is it possible to at least have an honest discussion about what the plan involves. Is it really necessary to always play these silly games every time these issues are discussed? Why do Democrats always have to impugn the character of good people every single time they talk about these issues? People should support what they believe to be in the best interest of the country as a whole, but they owe it to themselves to at least get the information that allows them to make informed decisions. That may be asking too much.
