Obamacare: All Trick, No Treat

All Trick No Treat

Sebelius: Policies will cover maternity coverage. For the young and healthy, uh, under thirty year-olds will have a choice also of a catastrophic plan that has no maternity coverage.

Ellmers: But men are required to purchase maternity coverage.

Sebelius: Well, an insurance policy has a series of benefits whether you use them or not…

Ellmers: And that is why health care premiums are increasing, because we are forcing them to buy things that they will never need. Thank you.

Sebelius: The individual policies cover families. Men often do need maternity care for their spouses and for their families, yes.

Ellmers: A single male, aged 32, does need maternity coverage. To the best of your knowledge, has a man ever delivered a baby?

Sebelius: “I don’t think so.”

“As nosebleed-inducing as Kathleen Sebelius’ performance was at the House Energy and Commerce Committee hearings today, [Obama’s] speech at Faneuil Hall was actually even worse. It combined all the usual elements – paternalistic contempt for the American people, self-congratulatory unseriousness, reflexive mendacity and the idiotic arrogance of a blind nudist running through a forest of steak knives.  As such, it was the usual freight train of provable lies and idiocies we’ve become accustomed to …”  (Obama’s Boston Speech, Deconstructed)

All Hallow’s Eve is when the president and his progressive poltergeists should have un-shrouded their Affordable Care Act. After all, it’s been scaring the hell out of people since it began its ominous stalk. Unfortunately for us, the Democrats’ all-tricks-no-treats legislation will be haunting Americans long after the mouldering ghoulies of October have returned to their graves.

  4. The inmates are running not only the asylum. They are running the entire country!

    Why are Americans putting up with this crap?

    • AFVet says:

      No AOW, the inmates just THINK they are running the asylum.
      We the People are running the Country.
      There is more awareness out there than you think.
      The ACA has awakened the giant.

      • I hope that your assessment is correct!

        I do foresee a lot of pain until a new Congress is elected in 2014 and takes office in 2015.

        I also worry about Obama’s executive-order pen.

      • AFV Vet,
        Have you seen this? “…Mother Jones Predicts Doom for Democrats”

        • Bob Mack says:

          Hope springs eternal, AOW … on the other hand, so does stupidity — which seems to bloom in Democrats like a recurring case of athlete’s foot as soon as they approach a polling place. I have little hope anymore in the political process to save us from ourselves. Too many citizens are scratching their feet.
