Hillary Clinton: More Obamacare!

|| By FITSNEWS || If there was a shred of justice in our country, Hillary Clinton would be rotting away in a federal prison right now – not rolling out new policies from her presidential campaign.

But we don’t live in a just country, we live in the United States.

And so Clinton – whose foundational warmongering should turn the stomachs of progressives and conservatives alike – is still being treated like a leader, not a criminal, by our political-media establishment.

To wit: Her latest campaign announcement in support of the expansion of U.S. president Barack Obama‘s socialized medicine monstrosity, Obamacare.

“I’m not going to let them tear up that law, kick 16 million people off their health coverage and force this country to start the healthcare debate all over again,” Clinton said during a visit to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. “Not on my watch.”

“Why would you repeal something that is working to help people?” she added.

Um … help people?

Obamacare is a tightening noose around the U.S. economy.  Sure it has expanded subsidies for some, but it has also sucked the wind out of America’s consumer economy – helping stop any hope of a recovery.  Also a recent report from the Commonwealth Fund revealed that Obamacare’s “expanded coverage” isn’t all it was cracked up to be.

Specifically, the report found that a whopping 31 million Americans are “underinsured” – i.e. not protected against soaring medical costs (notably deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses).  That population has more than doubled since 2003 – and is only going to expand further.

“The steady growth in the proliferation and size of deductibles threatens to increase underinsurance in the years ahead,” the report’s authors noted.

Translation?  Well, it’s just like P.J. O’Rourke warned decades ago when Clinton was pushing nationalized medicine in her husband’s White House.

“If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free,” he wrote.

Indeed.  In fact true to form, Clinton’s stated rationale for supporting an expansion of Obamacare is (ironically) that she wants to “bring down costs for families.”

How typical …

An orgy of government excess creates soaring consumer costs.  Which government then proposes to lower by … more government.

Rinse. Repeat.

Of course if you oppose such demonstrable insanity, Clinton views you as some sort of evil ideologue.  On her trip to Louisiana, for example, she trashed the state’s governor Bobby Jindal for rejecting Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion – saying he “put ideology ahead of the well-being of the people and the families in this state.”

Jindal – a third-tier GOP presidential hopeful – responded by saying it was “appropriate that the godmother of Obamacare would be in Louisiana promoting socialized medicine.”

“Obamacare was sold to the American people based on lies that it would improve quality and lower costs,” he added. “It has done none of that.”

Indeed …

The only redeeming aspect of Clinton’s health care views?  She’s reportedly opposed to Obamacare’s “Cadillac Tax,” which aims to assess new levies on employer-sponsored health care plans beginning in 2018.

We support her on that front …

On the whole, though, Clinton’s health care proposals represent a significant expansion of the policies that have helped run the American economy into a ditch.

Dear God, please end her political career.

Please give the uninsured another chance to avoid the fine for not having health insurance, three House Democrats asked in a letter to President Barack Obama in February.

“If Obamacare is so great, why do Democrats repeatedly try to hide its more unpleasant features?” Investors Business Daily asked them.

Before the law was passed, President Obama assured us:

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. (Tens of thousands — chiefly seniors enrolled in Medicare Advantage — have learned they can’t. Only 32 percent of 3,072 physicians surveyed by medical HR firm Jackson Coker say they’ll join the Obamacare network.)

If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep your plan. (Hundreds of thousands — most recently in Colorado — have had their plans canceled. Up to 20 million eventually might, the Congressional Budget Office once estimated.)

Premiums for the average family will be cut by up to $2,500. (Premiums in the non-group marketplace were 24.4 percent higher last year than they would have been absent Obamacare, said the National Bureau of Economic Research.)

ObamaCare has been and continues to be underwater. I would stay off that horse.

I totally swear I’m not that troll Flip. But my ‘sources’ have revealed a sinister plot that will destroy this country if Hillary is elected pResident. If elected she plans to appoint “Bat Boy” as Secretary of State. This will open the door for more mutants and freaks to flood to our country and steal our jobs. Don’t let this she devil give mutants a foothold in our society. Remember I’m totally really really not Flip!

So what you are saying is that she is going to take her campaign staff and appoint them to all the crucial high level positions in her administration?

Socialized medicine monstrosity? I sure if you could come up with some alliteration to kick your histrionic hyperbole up a notch you could convince even more rubes of the “tyranny” involved and how the “free market” would be a better solution. Hey rubes! Look over here instead of what I’m really doing, which is selling out America to the highest bidder–all while selling out the rubes. The great Repub long con
