The GOP, Obamacare and Dysfunction

What the hell is wrong with the Senate Republicans. Why is it that a few miserable individual politicians, allegedly conservatives, believe it is their duty to hang forever the Albatross of mandated, unaffordable healthcare, as tax law, around necks of middle class Americans?

In consequence of their failure to REPEAL Obamacare, just repeal it, Mitch McConnell may, and probably will, bring forth for a vote the 2015 Republican House bill that did repeal Obamacare. When that happens these Senators, in conference, will have to decide to fish or cut bait. Believe me, they will collapse, defeat the bill they once championed and plunge Americans into a two class system, the poor and the wealthy. Goodby Middle Class, forever.

So long as people know that the fundamental flaw of Obamacare, its unaffordable mandates, still exists, that it keeps tax money flowing to insurance companies without any controls, those politicians not killing it are in danger of being primarried as they should and replaced by Tea Party conservative candidates as they will. Failure to do so will not stop the rise of the costs of healthcare but will accelerate its collapse and thus, Americas descent into the abyss of socialism. Look to Cuba and Venezuela to see what lies in our future.

Senator Rand Paul, smart as he is in looking for a reasonable bill, has missed the point of the existence of a Republican Party anyway. The fundamental flaw of healthcare is that the government has no business at all providing health insurance. It’s not in the Constitution. “But the poor in my state” will have no health care at all if the government doesn’t require it.”  That’s a lie too, and they know it. No one will be denied healthcare at the point of need. The taxpayers just don’t need to fund their abortions, their treatment for alcoholism, drug abuse and smoking addictions. That entire class could be simply dropped from coverage and billions of dollars would be saved. They’re non productive anyway. If high costs are the only problem, let the Death Panels send them to the grave. That’s why they exist.

But we forget, the original purpose of Obamacare was not to be a healthcare plan, but a wealth redistribution and transfer scheme specifically designed to eliminate the middle-class by driving Americans into the embracing arms of Socialism with a single payer (government) in charge of another one sixth of the economy. When that happens watch how fast the death panels do go into action. Baby, Charlie Gard, in England, a victim of the U’s National Health System, is a current best example of the state deciding who live or die, by board decision.

Senator Rand Paul did accurately described the present situation. He said: “It keeps the insurance mandates that cause the prices to rise, which chase young, healthy people out of the marketplace, and leads to what people call adverse selection, where you have a sicker and sicker insurance pool and the premiums keep rising through the roof.” 

Obamacare, or its Republican echo as it seems probable, will continue the charade of political  leadership, retaining the mandates nobody is anymore willing to pay, inflicting the criminality of tax evasion on avoiders, thus eliminating the middle class by enforcing the seizure of private property to accomplish by ruthlessness, what the law cannot do by willingness and will continue the Left’s enforced socialism on an increasingly uncooperative citizenry.

The elite Republicans have discarded all pretense of being conservative. They are and will continue to be champions of Big Government. It’s a virus that feeds on itself. They can’t quit unless removed from office. Stop funding the National Republican Senatorial Committee. They are not for you. Fund your own candidate of choice. Drop your Republican membership and reregister as Independent Conservatives; reenergize your tea party’s and get to work. If conservatism is to survive, a new party must replace the old. The GOP is worn out.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
