18 Democratic Senators Hope to Delay Implementation of Obamacare Tax Because It’s Too Expensive.
“So Nash, my husband has convinced me that Obamacare’s not that bad. I mean, it’s just like Romneycare and you supported Mittens.” For the record, I would have supported a tin can in a race against Barry, and Romney had a slightly higher body temperature than a tin can. That being said, there are differences between the two laws. First, Romneycare only affected one state, not the entire country, and the last time I looked, we’re a country of Federalism, where states have rights that the federal govt. doesn’t have. Second, and more important from a practical standpoint is Romneycare doesn’t have (as many) business destroying taxes and that whole death panel thing (which is actually real by the way. It’s in the friggin’ bill. Read it).
In fact, Obamacare is such a destructive force in terms of costs that it may never be fully implemented. Don’t believe me? So far, approximately 2,000 waivers have been handed out by Health and Human Services. The waivers keep their recipients from having to comply with the dictates of Obamacare, which allows them to save money. See, mandating health insurance is really really expensive, and as a result, it increases costs on individuals and businesses in various ways. We conservatives have said for a long time that we don’t want to pay for it, and neither will anyone else. Liberals laughed at us and called us names, because, well, that’s what liberals do. As usual, the reality of money has come home to roost.
Minnesota’s two senators sought Monday to delay a tax on medical devices that was expected to add $28 billion over the next decade to help pay for health care reform.
Those two senators, one of whom is none other than Al “how the hell did I fall into this gig” Franken, are Dems who voted for Obamacare. One of the many tax increases contained within the law directly affects the cost of doing business for manufacturers of medical equipment. Apparently Minnesota has some of those. But it isn’t just two Dem Senators who want this part of the law repealed; there are 18 of them.
Repeal is the ultimate goal of the letter’s 18 signers, including Klobuchar, Franken and all the heavy hitters in the Senate Democratic leadership.
This is so typical. They create these social welfare programs that are so full of compassion, tolerance, and social justice-y goodness that they’re guaranteed to improve the lives of women, gays, blacks, illegals, transgenders, PETA members, college professors, college students, recent college graduates, government employees, spouses of government employees, Hispanics, the homeless, the poor, Sierra club members, people who smoke marijuana because it keeps them from getting blinder, and people who love public transportation but never use it because they might have to sit by any of the aforementioned groups of people. It’s unicorns and rainbows for everyone! And Obamaphones!
EXCEPT THAT WHOLE PART ABOUT PAYING FOR THE DAMN THING IS COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY IGNORED BECAUSE EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO VOTES FOR A DEMOCRAT IS STUPID! AHHHHHHHHHHH!
I feel better now. Why is it that people who vote for the Democrat are unable to realize that stuff costs money? Is it that hard of a concept to grasp? Here we have Barry’s shining achievement: health care for all. Dammit, health care is a right! Well this completely non-right costs completely real money. And here we have 18 Democratic Senators asking Harry Reid to please please please delay the implementation of this thing because it’s going to make our economy worse which may result in us losing our jobs…after all of them voted for the damn thing.
Just kidding. I know the left understands that stuff costs money. They just want me to pay for it. And you know what? I don’t want to pay for it. This is precisely the reason why I want us to go over the fiscal cliff. I want the taxes of every single person who hates George W. Bush to go up because the George W. Bush tax cuts expire. You know when we’ll do away with liberalism? When liberals have to actually pay for the programs they vote for. When the Obamaphone lady has to actually pay for her Obamaphone, maybe then she’ll realize that her neighbor doesn’t exist to pay for her crap. Well, maybe not her neighbor, but you get my point.
