OBAMACARE IS A JOBS KILLER … HAS COST ABOUT 250,000 JOBS.
It is not a matter whether or not Obamacare has to be repealed, we have no choice. Obamacare is a lie when it comes to healthcare coverage and it is a jobs killer. Democrats have whined that Americans will lose healthcare coverage if Obamacare is repealed. Honestly America, we have no choice but to rid ourselves of this terrible law. It was not only a lie to the American people by Barack Obama, but a major jobs killer. We can’t afford to continues with this ironically named Affordable Healthcare Act when it is all but and in a death spiral. Thanks to Obama and the Democrat party, the hiring the 50th full-time employee effectively costs another $70,000 a year on top of the normal salary and benefits. Also, as Instapundit reminds us, it doesn’t save lives either.
In partnership with the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, in March 2017 I was able to commission Hanover Research to survey small businesses nationwide regarding their hiring and compensation practices. The result was a sample of 745 small businesses, representing every major industry and together employing almost 50,000 people.
We asked managers (almost evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans) how many people each business employed and whether it offers health insurance. Many businesses, when they do not offer coverage, keep their payrolls just below 50 full-time employees and thereby narrowly escape the ACA’s penalty. This pattern is not visible among businesses that offer coverage.
When we followed up, the businesses employing just fewer than 50 often said the ACA caused them to hire less and cut hours below the full-time threshold. The penalty caused payrolls to shrink or prevented them from growing.
Nationwide, we estimate the ACA-inspired practice of keeping payrolls below 50 has cost roughly 250,000 jobs. This does not count jobs lost when businesses close (we didn’t survey closed businesses) or shrink because of other ACA incentives.
The tally of lost jobs is bound to grow because the penalty itself automatically grows and the IRS is still learning how to enforce it.
From The Liar in Chief: Barack Obama urges ‘Political Courage’ to save Un-Affordable Care Act & His Legacy
THE AUDACITY OF A LIAR!!!
Last night, Barack Obama called for members of Congress not to repeal his dismal and failed legacy as he called on them to exercise “political courage.” REALLY, political courage? You mean the political courage it took Obama to lie to the American people to get his failed healthcare law passed? You all remember that you would be able to keep your doctor and health insurance coverage if you wanted to. You remember that it would lower insurance premiums. How did that work our for you America? You mean it takes political courage to lie? Because America, that is what Obama and Democrats did to pass Obamacare. Don’t buy the lies. Obamacare is doomed to failure and would collapse upon itself had nothing been done.
Politifact Lie of the Year: ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it’
OBAMA LIES … IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTHCARE PLAN YOU CAN KEEP IT
Barack Obama on Sunday night called on members of Congress to exercise the “political courage” to not repeal Obamacare — his first public comments about the law since the House voted to repeal it on Thursday, and a rare entry into the current political debate since leaving office.
“I hope they understand that courage means not simply doing what’s politically expedient, but doing what, deep in our hearts, we know is right,” Obama said, in a speech here at the John F. Kennedy Library accepting the Profiles in Courage award in honor of what would have been Kennedy’s 100th birthday.
“I expect to be busy, if not with a second career, at least a second act,” Obama said, promising more involvement.
Citing those who lost their seats after voting for the healthcare law in 2010, Obama described his “fervent hope” that current members “recognize it takes little courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential — but it takes some courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm, those who often have no access to the corridors of power.”
Obama: We will lower your premiums $2500 per family per year
Now the Democrat talking point lie is that Obamacare gave 21 million people healthcare coverage. Hmm, how many of those people had insurance coverage they liked and were forced off it and forced on to Obamacare?
WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA.
Talk About Being 100% Political … Democrats in House Sing … “Hey Hey Goodbye” After House Votes to Repeal Obamacare
House Democrats Taunt Republicans as Health Care Passes with ‘Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye’ …
Following the passing of the repeal of Obamacare, House Democrats sprang into premeditated song and serenaded the House halls with ‘Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye’. REALLY? Are you serious? Not caring one iota about the American people, the insane insurance premium hikes of Obamacare, the lies that you could keep your doctor or your healthcare plan, these Democrat fools instead were more concerned about politics. The hell with the American people and the disastrous health care plan they inflicted upon America. How childish can House Democrats get? It is a complete embarrassment these people are in elected office. A note to Trump, drain the damn swamp!
The Democrats sang “Hey Hey Goodbye” as a form of mockery to the GOP and a reference to they will lose their jobs in the 2018 midterm elections because of this this vote. REALLY? Obamacare was going to fail anyhow, Trump and the GOP did America a favor. Is the new replacement to Obamacare perfect, not a chance. A lot of deals are going to have to be make to get it thru the Senate, but make no mistake about it Democrats and Americans … OBAMACARE WAS A LIE AND A TOTAL FAILURE IN A DEATH SPIRAL.
Hey Dems, this is what losing looks like, keep it up. Because the Obama hopey-changey years are over and being dismantled one brick at a time.
After the vote, a chant broke out on the House Floor:
Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na
Hey Hey Hey
The chant, of course, was from “Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” by Steam — oft heard at sporting events.
According to multiple reporters on Twitter, the chant did not come from House Republicans celebrating the bill passage, but from Democrats signaling their belief that the vote will help cost the republicans their seats in the midterms.
House Democrats also waved goodbye towards their Republican colleagues as the final votes were tallied. The chant lasted for nearly a full minute.
HOUSE FINALLY REPEALS OBAMACARE …
After campaigning on the issue for nearly seven years, House Republicans have finally passed a health care bill to repeal and replace the failed disaster known as Obamacare. The legislation passed 217 to 213 with no Democrats joining Republicans to repeal the failed Obamacare law. There were 20 Republicans voted no on the legislation. President Donald Trump praised House Speaker Paul Ryan and said he’s confident in Senate passage and predicted an “unbelievable victory.” “Trump went on to say, “As far as I’m concerned, your premiums are going to come down.”
Make no mistake about it America, Obamacare was a lie fed to you by Barack Obama and Democrats. Do I think this legislation is perfect, not a chance, but Obamacare was a failing disaster.
House Republicans on Thursday narrowly approved their sweeping health care bill aimed at fulfilling a campaign promise to upend ObamaCare, after resuscitating legislation that had flatlined on the floor not six weeks earlier.
The revised American Health Care Act passed on a 217-213 vote.
“We’re going to get this finished,” President Trump declared in a celebratory Rose Garden event, surrounded by Republican congressional allies shortly after the vote. He vowed premiums and deductibles will be “coming down” and the Affordable Care Act is “essentially dead.”
The passage marked Republicans’ biggest step yet toward replacing the Obama administration’s signature domestic policy law. The bill heads next to the Senate, however, where it faces an uncertain fate.
I can only hope that this is the beginning of really providing affordable and fair insurance coverage to Americans who want insurance. not forced to purchase government sponsored and unaffordable insurance. My person opinion having been in the healthcare field for nearly 30 years is that the fix should have been more market driven, not a spoon fed insurance plan. Individuals are going to have to start taking responsibility for their lives and stop depending on government, that goes for Republicans too.
Full White House Press Conference following House Repeal of Obamacare
Democrats were unable to stop the GOP vote aimed at President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement. But after the final vote was cast, they chanted “nah nah nah nah hey hey hey goodbye” to their Republican colleagues, with a few members waving, as they believe the vote will lead to many GOP lawmakers losing their seats in the November 2018 midterms.
Thursday marks a political milestone — one that has painfully eluded Trump and House leaders for months. The controversial health care bill delivered Trump the biggest political defeat of his short presidency in March, when the legislation had to be yanked from the House floor because it simply didn’t have enough support.
Under pressure from an antsy Trump looking to score a big political victory, Republican leaders tried again last week, hoping to to get to 216 votes ahead of the President’s symbolically important 100-day mark in office. That effort, too, failed.
IT TAKES A SCAMMER TO RECOGNIZE A SCAM …
From the architect who brought America the lie and scam known to all as Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber says that the GOP replacement to Obamacare is a scam. REALLY? Unlike the the scam that was perpetrated on the American people where Barack Obama lied to the American people and said you could keep your doctor, insurance and hospital if you liked it. Wasn’t Obamacare also supposed to bring down the cost of premiums? By the way, how’s that $10,000 deductible working out for you America? Obamacare is the greatest scams ever forced down the throats of Americans.
I do not begin to claim that the current form of the GOP replacement to the so-called Affordable Healthcare Act is perfect, however, do not ever forget the BS that Americans were fed by people who thought Americans were too stupid (watch video) to understand.
“Any replace[ment] that they would pass would result in millions of Americans losing health insurance, would result in higher premiums, and would result in a huge redistribution from the poor to the rich,” Gruber said on Boston Herald Radio’s “Herald Drive” show with John Sapochetti and Rick Shaffer. “Now if they are happy with that and they are willing to do that, I wouldn’t call that a replacement, I would call that a scam.”
Gruber has stirred up controversy on a number of occasions after videos surfaced of him calling the American public “stupid” for allowing the Affordable Care Act to pass in the first place while being the public face of the legislation. Despite being a public backer of Obamacare, and an antagonist of Republicans’ efforts to repeal the landmark legislation, he doesn’t see much room for the law to improve, such as the single payer system, with the current political climate.
