Obamacare is an anchor around the necks of Americans and it will cost a fortune. Not only will it cost a fortune but not all people will be insured and government officials will be involved in our health. Our care will be based on what some bean counter decides and, contrary to Obama’s claim, we won’t be able to keep our doctors if we like them.
Nancy Pelosi, who once said we had to pass the bill to see what was in it (and we are finding more and more problems), is defending the 1800 or so waivers granted by the Obama administration. Yes, waivers have been granted so that some businesses do not have to participate in Obamacare. The health care solution, the panacea, is so great that companies have requested and been granted waivers from participating. The funny thing is that unions and other groups that pushed for this monstrosity to be rammed down our throats have applied for and received waivers. It is good enough for us but not for them.
Pelosi defended the waivers by claiming that they were granted to very small businesses and that the waivers would have a very small impact on our economy. If Obamacare is so great, why did they need waivers to begin with?
And if it is so great why did all the groups that supported it line up to apply for waivers before the ink was dry on the newly signed law.
And why is Pelosi defending the waivers when she and all her cohorts said it was the fix we needed?
And finally, why did McDonalds get a waiver when it is one of the largest businesses in America?
Surely that company does not qualify as very, very small and certainly it has a large impact on our economy.
This is election year history rewriting. It is time for Pelosi and her ilk to get out and tell you what you should believe because they say so.
Who will you believe, a known liar like Pelosi (and most politicians) or your own “lying” eyes?

Never surrender, never submit.
