Health Care Should Have Been A Minor Issue

Health Care Should Have Been A Minor Issue


I’m on the subway and all I see is advertisements for “New York Quality Health Care.” Posters line the top of the car, “Health Insurance for New Yorkers.”  Like health care was an issue until Obama wanted to dodge the bullet of a failed economy and target our attention on medical utopias. Like medical attention  was a big problem in the United States.  Like Shahs and kings weren’t flying here to take advantage of our medical expertise.


The American electorate chose Obama to fix the economy instead of choosing an economic genius like Mitt Romney.  As if a community organizer would understand national budgets.  Rather than improve our economy he pulled a bait and switch and made health care the focus of our society.


But health care was never a real problem. We have the best health care in the world. Still Obama knew he was not equal to fixing our economic problems so he refocused us on medical care.  In the meantime he raised our debt to 18 trillion dollars and lowered the middle classes average income.


So Obama decided to play dodge ball with medical care, pretending that ours was broken and that he would fix it.


Health care has become an obsession and the subway trains are saturated by the ads. He created a problem where there was none.


Let us go back to pre-Obama health care. I want my old doctor, my old health plan.  Free me from the uncertainties of Obamacare. 


Don’t give me the naïve medicine of a president who knows nothing about health care and uses it as an aside to slip away  from his real problems. Not to mention that his Affordable HealthCare Act will bankrupt the country and add to the financial woes that he was supposed to fix. The Middle Classes rates are going up. He had promised to reduce them.


Promises, promises.  Never pragmatic action except adjusting the angle of the teleprompter.


Let the Democrats stop sucking up to Obama and return to our world renowned health care of yesteryear,  renewing our capitalistic brilliant financial and health systems.


Obama is giving us his fair share of death panels and Ebola.  He is always looking for the homerun when he can’t hit a single. He wants to be Babe Ruth when he is little league. 


He called ISIS the junior varsity.  Under his presidency our heads will roll.


His incompetency is gloriously large.  He is a miracle of inefficiency and lies.   


Obama was going to give us a transparent government.  He gave us a transparent suit, the emperor’s new clothes.
