Liberal states impose new individual mandate ahead of ObamaCare rollback
In an effort to make their former boss look good (tough assignment), some of the liberal states are trying to carry his torch that was blown out by PDT. Yes, like hitting oneself in the head with a hammer. Some may call it, cutting off their nose to spite their face. I’ll show you buddy!!
Last year’s sweeping Republican tax bill killed the federal tax penalty for individuals who refuse to get health insurance as mandated under ObamaCare.
But as that penalty disappears for Americans in January, a growing number of liberal states are moving to enact their own individual mandates requiring residents to purchase health insurance – a last-ditch effort to preserve a critical part of former President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law.
Since Republicans passed the tax bill in December, New Jersey, Vermont and Washington, D.C., have passed laws enacting an individual mandate, joining Massachusetts, which famously enacted an individual mandate while Mitt Romney was governor in 2006.
Under Obama; people who did not BUY health insurance were subject to tax penalties. If anyone does not want health insurance or can not afford it, why should they be mandated to have it or be penalized?? What kind of advancement in the system is it when people are literally forced to by insurance or anything they do not want??
ALL this colossal financial disa$ter Obombacare amounted to was to $atisify one man’s ob$E$$ion to get his name in the history books as being the 1st president to get a national health care; NO MATTER WHAT THE CO$T.
Chew on this:
President Obama has touted Affordable Care Act as a way to save money on health care costs. New projections from the Congressional Budget Office, however, anticipate that the federal government will need to spend more on Obamacare than previously thought.
The non-partisan office estimates that the program will cost the federal government $1.34 trillion over the next decade, an increase of $136 billion from the CBO’s predictions in 2015. In 2016 alone, Obamacare will cost a total of $110 billion.
ANDDDDDDDDDDDD, BUTTTTTTTTTTTTT we still have fools that are supporting this man’s pipe dreams and his ideologies. Figure that one out.
The Unfavorable health care plan, better know as Obombacare, was a disaster right out of the gate. Yet here are sheep that continue to support this di$a$trou$ behemoth, the same Boulder Roller$ that are constantly trying to disrupt everything that PDT is doing.
In most cases the handwriting is one the wall, its shortcomings and downfalls are staring them in the face, the proof is in the pudding, BUTT the sheep continue to follow their leader over the cliff. That is why the four-legged critters are sometime referred to as; MINDLESS.
I would think anyone that had any commonsense at all, regardless of what political persuasions, would see that the ship was heading in the wrong directions and would jump overboard. Put the politics aside and evaluate issues by thinking rationally instead of like MINDLESS sheep.
There are some fools out there that can not and refuse to see the forest on account of the trees. If their mother was run over by a democrat driving a 18 wheeler, they would give the driver a parade. If it was a republican, they would hang the stiff right at the scene of the accident.
This is what a staunch democrat had to say about PDT on Linkedin.
This is a great example of giving credit where it is due.
