Obamacare: “It’s a Wonderful Lie”

As this Christmas season unfolds, let us speak the truth about Obamacare, “It’s a Wonderful Lie” for Barack Obama.
Obama built his Obamacare scheme on so many lies it is hard to keep track of them. The obvious ones: if you like your doctor or your healthcare plan you can keep them are becoming well recognized; but they are far from the only lies a little simple deduction can reveal. There are so many fatal errors in Obamacare it really is difficult to take it seriously. In fact if it wasn’t a reality already; if it had actually been discussed and debated before it was voted on as was the stuff of yet another lie from Obama, his signature legislation would have been laughed at and rejected.
It was clearly written either by drug addled progressives in a smoke induced dream or cynical people who wanted it to fail so Obama could more easily stampede Americans into the clutches of single payer healthcare. My money is on the latter. One has to be able to think in a clever manner to write something that looks like it is supposed to be a genuine program but is really a mess designed to be dead on arrival as Obamacare has been shown to be.
One of the cynical group’s more clever lies is built on their understanding of the media as the liberal cheerleaders they are. They knew the media to be thoroughly biased, lazy and devoid of curiosity. They knew the media would never do the simple calculations needed to make Obamacare the laughing stock it should be.
Here’s what they missed.
We are told that Obamacare needs 40% of those it signs up to be under 35 years of age. This makes sense because any good Ponzi scheme requires a constant supply of fresh money coming in from the bottom of the pyramid. We are told that this has become a problem for ObamaCare because these young suckers have been hesitant to sign up. The media now frets that only about 29% of Barack’s young and healthy volunteers seem willing to take the plunge. Woe is Obama!
What the American public has not been told is these young people only make up about 26% of voting age Americans. So when only about 30% sign up it will represent just 8% of what Obamacare needs to stay afloat! Facts are stubborn things.
Obama knew this and he lied by omission.
