Why Obamacare Is Good For America

“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this [Obamacare].”

In that quote lies the essence of why Obamacare is ultimately a great thing for this country. They are not the words of a political newcomer, but of a citizen, named Tom Waschura, who voted for President Obama in the last two presidential elections.

Waschura was a vehement supporter of Obamacare until he discovered that his family of four will be paying $10,000 more per year for health insurance than they’ve been paying.

Due to Obamacare regulations, Waschura’s insurance must expand its coverage to include benefits his family does not need but which he must still pay for. “When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year,” he said, “that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.” Despite this, Waschura maintains, “I’m not against Obamacare. It’s just the initial shock. I’m holding out hope that there will be a correction over a handful of years.” He will see that he is wrong.

The only way to avoid this exorbitant cost is for Waschura to drop his family’s private insurance and enroll in Obamacare. This exodus of customers will be experienced by all private insurance companies, driving those companies out of business, and thus giving Obamacare—the government—a monopoly on health-insurance. This is by design, of course.

Another person who will be paying more for health insurance is Cindy Vinson, whose annual health-insurance cost will rise by $1,800. “Of course I want people to have health care,” she said, conflating, as a leftist tends to do, health care with health insurance. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.” Thank you, Cindy, for only paying attention so late in the game.

I have absolutely no sympathy for Waschura, Vinson, and the tens of millions of others who are being and will be forced into his same position; they wanted Obamacare. By electing Obama, they elected to force Obamacare upon the rest of us against our will. We should not have to pay the costs that subsidize the program; they should. We should not be forced to leave our private insurance company; Democrats should. That’s as fair as it gets. But America is not fair and Obamacare is law.

The fact that Waschura and others like him were thrilled about Obamacare until the moment they discovered the realities of the program is exactly the reason conservatives and Republicans should stop fighting it and let it be fully implemented. Let it implode upon itself and, more importantly, upon its supporters. Those supporters will, as Waschura and Vinson have partly done, realize the error of their ways and they will then support efforts to repeal Obamacare, say, a decade from now. Their support of that cause will lead to a new wave of conservatives entering and controlling both houses of Congress and the presidency.

Right now conservatives and Republicans are attempting to fight this war in a strictly political arena, but the real war is a cultural one. American culture, being, among other things, a culture of entitlement, is devastatingly liberal because liberal politicians had the acumen to realize that a nation’s political proclivities sprout from its culture. Democrats are ahead of the game–they got started on the game decades ago–while Republicans are still busying themselves with politics. It’s the culture that, frankly, needs to be destroyed; not the government. Letting Obamacare make doubters of its supporters and, a bit later, conservative converts of its doubters would be a powerful way to battle it. Telling America “Obamacare will be harmful” is a losing strategy; letting Obamacare actually be harmful is the only hope there is in defeating the entitlement culture.

    Well thats the real issue isnt it? The libs/commie progressives are betting that the entitlement culture will never be defeated. They intend to make things so bad that the only viable option will be government dependence.

    Liberalism IS a SEVERE MENTAL DISORDER!!!!!!

    You are WRONG about not fighting Obammycare and letting it take place. First if it TAKES ROOT it will be impossible to get rid like all those WORTHLESS programs in welfare prove that out. Second is it will DESTROY the GREATEST healthcare system the world over. If you do not believe me on that FACT just look at where all the Leaders of the world go for medical care. Now once that DESTRUCTION takes place it won’t be repairable by any simple method. In FACT the DESTRUCTION will not only happen to America’s healthcare system it will happen to America itself. So letting Obammycare go into effect without a fight is the worst thing that can possible happen to America.

    Good for America, you got to be kidding, what a stupid fool, it’s bringing down America and our economy just like the Furhur Obama planned it would. It cost twice what Obama and his Regime said it would, and cover less than they said it would. Grow some fool and tell the truth about Obamacare.

    • Devasahayam

      Actually, Graham is saying that it is good that Americans will finally be under no illusions that hocare (a suggested — and not entirely inapt — short name for it) works.

  • wolf2525

    Obama implanted this Obamacare trash to destory America, that is just what Obama wants to do. Wake up America, it’s about power where Obama is concerned. All that liar and tratior wants is power, he wants to be our dictator, not our President.

  • wolf2525

    Liberalism, the same as Socialism, a disease that will kill our country.

    17 Trillion dollars in national debt and we are starting a program we can’t afford.
    That’s like you losing your job and going out and buying your neighbor a new car because he needs one!!! You laugh but it’s true!!!

    • Apolloone

      I’m not laughing because it’s the truth, and the money for that new car was in the form of a bank loan because the car buyer was broke.

    Dont let anything the democrats want happen just to let it explode in their face. Look at the housing failure that created the recession. The democrats blamed Bush. And still do. If they have to take credit they will continue to talk about the benefits of obamacare…they still do this today 3 yrs later. Nothing will explode in the democrats face. Fight!

  • ONTIME

    There is a saying of long remembrance, “There are more wealthy democrats than there are rich republicans.”……….The Faker in the WH is now going to enforce law that would make misery a equality factor that will cause this adage to be reflected upon..

    Obam-ass care or not , Americans will NEVER accept government enslavement , not even the gimme crowd once there is no one else to bleed dry for it . The longer it takes to happen though the much more extremely bloody things will get .

  • Whatzrname

    Ovomitcare’s never been about healthcare- o and his democRATS don’t give a flip about our healthcare-it’s all about being in control- over us-so the 85% of us who have/recently had health insurance will probably lose it so that 15 % will have it- it was designed to fail after you’ve signed up and given them all your personal info (to people who didn’t even have background checks done on them) , then they tell you what it’s going to cost you, and then if you don’t follow through, you get ominous and veiled threat notices- oh, yeah, it’s gonna be fun- can we sue every idiot who voted for this hitler wannabe?

  • danclamage

    I’m not waiting ten years after the country has been destroyed and we’ve all been enslaved to hear these idiots say “hey those Conservatives were right after all!”

  • Jack Parker

    “Single payer” and exorbitant rates are just around the corner.

  • DAY8293A

    Wrong strategy,,, cutting off your nose to spite your face is what you are suggesting. Once this thing is started, it will never end. It is the means for the left to take over all of our liberties….
