To the average American, ObamaCare is part web site disaster, part shattered campaign promise writ very, very large.Millions of Americans have already been forced out of their existing health care policies, a number that may skyrocket in the new year.
Russell Simmons sees it differently.
The hip-hop mogul says ObamaCare is already so successful it's saved thousands, if not millions of lives.
Yes, we initially wanted single payer, and we had to compromise back in 2009 for the Affordable Care Act. But, it is a damn good piece of legislation that has already saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. So, let us not give up now.
Of course, the privileged ones in the upper part of the top 1% of the rich like Mr. Simmons will never have to concern themselves with issues like premiums, copays and deductibles. This kind of "Bread and Circuses" bullshit is why Obama's numbers are lower than Bush II's.
The Obama's and the Simmons of the world will have the finest medical care that money can buy. The rest of us?
Not so much.
It would be different if these scum were forced to contend with the disaster they've developed and support. But we all know THAT will never happen. And that's just part of their rank hypocrisy.
Remember Rule One of legislation:
If you have to lie to get your bill, your project, your program passed?
Then it shouldn't BE passed.
Thanks to Mr. Simmons for coming up with yet another reason why this trainwreck should be repealed.
