The bad news about ObamaCare continues to pour in. While Obama tried to make light of the situation during his State of the Union address, there are millions of Americans who have lost their coverage or have been impacted negatively in some why by his healthcare law.
For example, we still have plenty of cause for concern about our privacy and the security of our personal information. According to the National Review, “At least 43 convicted criminals are working as ObamaCare navigators in California, including three individuals with records of significant financial crimes. Although some of the offenses are decades old, and although convicted criminals account for only 1 percent of the 3,729 certified enrollment counselors in the state, Californians still have good cause to be concerned about their privacy.” Forgery, burglary, domestic abuse, child abuse, welfare fraud, battery, theft and evading a police officer are among the offenses committed by people who are now handling private, sensative healthcare information.
Oh and by the way, it seems as though the Obama-mania media has finally picked up on something conservatives have been saying for a while, and that is that ObamaCare represents a massive wealth transfer program.
From the Associated Press: “Big impact on income gap is health law's new angle”
Maybe the health care law was about wealth transfer, after all.
New research shows that the Affordable Care Act will significantly boost the economic fortunes of those in the bottom one-fifth of the income ladder while slightly reducing average incomes on the rungs above.
Economists at the nonpartisan Brookings Institution, a Washington public policy center, found an average increase of about 6 percent in the incomes of the poorest 20 percent of the United States, meaning those making below approximately $20,600 a year.
There you have it, America! Obama's ideology of speading the wealth around will be achieved through his chief legislative achievement. All the more reason to repeal it and give America real solutions for healthcare, as well as growing our economy and creating wealth.
