breitbart tv nbsphollywood nbspgovernment pelosi trashes uninsured free riders



Now that the Supreme Court has concluded that Obamacare is a tax, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has trashed the uninsured--those whom the Affordable Care Act was supposed to benefit--as "free riders." Pelosi, speaking to Audie Cornish of National Public Radio, explained that new taxes were necessary because some (many?) of the uninsured actively choose not to buy health insurance, even though they can afford it.

Pelosi's change in attitude towards the uninsured is a complete about-face from the rhetoric that she and the Democrats used in pushing for the massive legislation in 2009-10. Then, Democrats bombarded Americans with heart-wrenching stories--many of them false, particularly those told by President Barack Obama--about the 30, 40, or 50 million people without health insurance. Those who pointed to research that over 40 percent of the uninsured were "voluntary" were dismissed as heartless corporate shills or racists.

Today, Pelosi tells us that the uninsured deserve our contempt because they impose a cost on all of us when they show up injured or ill in the hospital. They are "free riders," she said, and the new taxes in Obamacare are needed to solve the problems they create. That almost sounds like a conservative argument--but it does notexplain why the health insurance system has to be overhauled for the other 300-million-plus Americans.

The truth is that Pelosi does not care about the uninsured. Nor does she care about raising taxes, which she is happy to do. And the wealthy, insider-trading Pelosi surely does not believe her rhetoric about how House Republicans who plan to repeal Obamacare are mere tools of the insurance industry. What her remarks reveal is the true agenda of Obama and the Democrats: control of health care, of the economy, of the lives of others.

    It is a new strategy of the Democrats. It has been discussed on TV. They are trying to argue that Obamacare will prevent "freeloading" such as we have under the present system where rich white kids too cheap to buy insurance go to the emergency room of a local hospital and get medical care that we all have to pay for.

    Health care (basic) should be the responsibility of Government; but everybody should contribute to a fee in the accord to your income, either you use or not, than insurance could be the accord to your money. In Canada every three months we pay a fee; not that much, if you do not work or pension type be low pay not pay either. You could choose your doctor and in hospital you shore your card contributing. We should realized many people take advantage of everything, that is way, for the poor and middle classes the Government should take responsibility for citizens health. Americans should realized when vote for a Political Party, any Government in the world are made to govern the country and take care of all citizens in many ways, special health care, and nobody should pay taxes on basic food either, like bread, vegetables, some kinds of meat and fish after certain price. But many Governments only to give power and wealth, inclusive many wars, watch out everybody for me both of the one’s are now in disputed no damn good to greed. Try vote for Ron Paul.

    The way things go here in the USA, the worker bees get soaked to pay for the sloths or those who through no fault of their own can't find jobs because the economy sucks (I have nothing against those who want to work, but everything against those who scam the system).

    Not only that, I don't want the government making my healthcare choices for me, you may consider that a good thing, but when I look at the way they can't even run a post office and exploit that, I don't think so...it is downright scary. I don't need looney liberals sticking their nose in my personal life, go pound salt control freaks!

    Also, any American who is not totally freaked about the IRS collecting the money for the healthcare plan ought to go have their head examined.

    A lot of young people (I know some of them personally) try and try but can't find jobs. What would REALLY help is if they could work, they certainly want to, but Obama could give a *uck less about REALLY fixing the problem.

    The ACA will not fulfill the promise of full access to insurance. This is nothing more than an attempt to hide countless federal programs to divert personal wealth into the public coffers for the use of GOVERNMENT to spend....and not on the poor or the uninsured.
