Uber-Liberal Filmmaker Michael Moore Wrote Quite the OPDED in the New York Times New Years’ Day … “Obamacare is Awful”
WOW, Far-Left, socialist film maker Michael Moore says … The dirty little secret is OBAMACARE IS AWFUL!!!
In an Op-ed in the NY Times, ”The Obamacare We Deserve,’ Michael Moore wrote that “For many people, the ‘affordable’ part of the Affordable Care Act risks being a cruel joke.” We can all agree that Obamacare is awful; however, as Newsbusters points out, before you jump on the Michael Moore bandwagon and that a liberal, far-leftist socialist has come to their senses, you need to know first that Moore us for universal healthcare and a single payer and it should be 100% funded by you. Well, by those working individuals and 50% who pay income taxes.
Michael Moore calls Obamacare a loser
In an op-ed published at the New York Times, Moore wrote, “Obamacare is awful.”
“For many people, the ‘affordable’ part of the Affordable Care Act risks being a cruel joke,” added Moore. “The cheapest plan available to a 60-year-old couple making $65,000 a year in Hartford, Conn., will cost $11,800 in annual premiums. And their deductible will be $12,600. If both become seriously ill, they might have to pay almost $25,000 in a single year.”
I love how Moore put quotation marks around the word “affordable.” I’ve been doing it for years concerning this atrocious law.
But before you get excited thinking this leftist has suddenly come to his senses, be advised that you’re probably not going to agree with Moore’s reasons for disliking the “Affordable Care Act.”
Because he’s for universal health insurance funded by the roughly 50 percent of Americans that pay income taxes, of course.
BARACK OBAMA’S GOAL IS SINGLE PAYER, UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE
Obama is a “proponent of single payer, universal healthcare … We may not get there immediately.”
Moore’s full New York Times OPED can be read HERE ... ‘The Obamacare We Deserve’. Isn’t it incredible that Moore blames the right-wing for Obamacare’s flaws. However, Moore is stating a fact when he says that Barack Obama’s end goal was single payer, universal healthcare in the United States. However, Obama knew that would never fly, so his plan all along was to slowly morph into it. The problem is for many, including the LEFT, Obamacare as a stop-gap to single payer is “AWFUL”.
I believe Obamacare’s rocky start — clueless planning, a lousy website, insurance companies raising rates, and the president’s telling people they could keep their coverage when, in fact, not all could — is a result of one fatal flaw: The Affordable Care Act is a pro-insurance-industry plan implemented by a president who knew in his heart that a single-payer, Medicare-for-all model was the true way to go. When right-wing critics “expose” the fact that President Obama endorsed a single-payer system before 2004, they’re actually telling the truth.
What we now call Obamacare was conceived at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, and birthed in Massachusetts by Mitt Romney, then the governor. The president took Romneycare, a program designed to keep the private insurance industry intact, and just improved some of its provisions. In effect, the president was simply trying to put lipstick on the dog in the carrier on top of Mitt Romney’s car. And we knew it.
But before anyone starts touting the single payer healthcare system, how is Medicare and Medicaid working for America other than bankrupting it!!!
