Recently, a lot of people have expressed shock and outrage because they finally realized that President Obama flat out lied to the American people when he said “if you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan”.
Why are they so shocked?Believe me, I get no pleasure in saying “I told you so”, but, I did try to explain in my blog from the git-go exactly how the ObamaCare scam was designed to work. Obama’s plan all along, even before Nancy uttered those infamous words “we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it”, was to eliminate private insurance companies.
Obama’s main 2008 campaign promise was to fundamentally transform America. He boasted of his plan to build a government program to insure the uninsured.
That plan was the scheme to push all Americans into a government plan.
Even with many American workers already contributing a percentage to their health care premiums, most employers providing health insurance were already paying 10%, 20% or even higher percentage of their payrolls toward health insurance–and annual cost increases were often in the double digits.
Imagine, then, an employer in a highly-competitive industry (like the grocery industry, for example) paying 18% of its payroll toward employee benefits (even with employee contributions) and, suddenly, Big Brother offers a plan that costs the employer a mere six percent of payroll. What employer wouldn’t jump on that?
Moreover, in a highly competitive industry, once one employer dumps its employees onto the government plan, its competitors will either have to do the same, or lose market share and potentially go out of business. The $2000 fine (or in certain cases $3000) fines that employers will have to pay for not providing insurance to their employees is even more of an incentive for employers to dump on the government plan–now called “exchanges.”
Like the falling of dominoes, within a few short years everyone would be on the government’s plan.
Obama’s goal was, and is, to transform America into Socialism, and the most logically place to begin is to socialize healthcare. ObamaCare is nothing more than a ‘transition’ plan to single-payer (or socialized health care).
According to this article in the Wall Street Journal, Obama aides actually debated whether to be honest with Americans or to deceive them. Being politicians, they chose the latter. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303843104579172002892623382
It is no mistake, nor accident, that ObamaCare is causing Americans lose their insurance. That is exactly what it was designed to do. The Administration knew this all along, and there is documented proof they knew as far back as 2010.
Those people, who are shocked that they are now losing their insurance, obviously were not paying attention. That was the plan all along.
