Do you enjoy your health care plan? If so, get ready to say goodbye to the freedom to choose your health coverage and say hello to Obamacare.
Defunding Obamacare by withholding taxpayer dollars from fueling the program is essential in order to protect millions of Americans from losing their current employer-provided health insurance.
Thousands of jobs will be lost in addition to employees’ freedom to choose coverage through their employer. At the same time, premiums are expected to increase by a projected $2,100 per family.
Even if Americans are happy with their current coverage, an estimated average of seven million people will lose their employer-sponsored health insurance. Even if subscribers are in good health, businesses may cut hours if they cannot afford to implement the program. It will destroy the very foundation of the 40-hour workweek, which has become crucial to the American middle class. This mandated burden would force many employers to drop healthcare coverage and consequently offload their employees onto the state exchanges.
The law is falling apart. This is primarily because it is simply unworkable based on the sheer complexity of its contents and the enormous amount of new mandates that it imposes. The process by which it was passed through Congress offered little time for the bill to be reviewed or debated. This has already resulted in a very long list of postponed mandates and a long list of impending failures to come.
Nearly everything that President Obama has promised about his signature legislation is untrue, such as the promise that Americans can “keep their current healthcare plans if they like them.” The truth is that many health care plans do not even qualify as “government approved” under Obamacare.
Behind the 2,700 pages of the law and all of the new taxation lies the true purpose of Obamacare. It is intended to complicate and cripple the entire private healthcare insurance industry so that the American people have no other choice except to crawl back to the government to save them after everything they have known has been destroyed.
Obamacare is an act of political treachery and is not a way to “defend Americans from insurance companies.” Rather, it is a way to control and impede upon Americans’ freedom to decide. Americans need to be defended from Obamacare, not the insurance companies.
The Affordable Care Act is simply not the way to jumpstart a lethargic economy; it is a disturbing and dangerous attempt by the government to take over the healthcare industry. Once a government controls a society’s healthcare, it basically controls everything.
