Obama calls our current insurance substandard. But before Obamacare reared its inadequate head, our policies would have been considered standard. It was free market insurance that responded to the exigencies of individual needs. It was not one size fits all. Deductibles, pricing and coverages were designed to individual situations and conditions.
The policies were individual-centric not bureaucratic centered. But that was all Before Obama, not After Obama. That was before free will was replaced by authoritarian coverages and conceptual dogma.
It was only with the over-insurance written into Obamacare that our much beloved insurance programs became less than the standard. Obama knows nothing about insurance and doesn’t realize that policies are tailored to the needs of individuals not to the all-encompassing possibilities of every conceivable illness.
Obama could call our insurance substandard with regard to his needlessly encompassing policies, but they were perfectly standard with regard to the needs of individual exigencies.
Obama originally told us that we could keep our insurance programs and our doctors. He later called them “substandard” or “cut-rate” plans. Now he is telling us that we can’t keep them because they are not as stupidly, overly comprehensive as Affordable HealthCare. On top of that, we won’t have access to the top hospitals and doctors.
Were our old plans substandard or was our ability to access them topnotch? Our old policies may have not covered males for apocryphal pregnancy, but they at least allowed us to see the doctors we trusted at the best hospitals.
Substandard is Obama’s Affordable Healthcare Plan which dictates coverages we don’t need and charges higher premiums. Substandard is a President who dictates our insurance when he has never worked a day in the insurance industry.
Substandard is Obama’s standard defense of his own mistakes and his false apologies for our premiums and our coverages when he does nothing to resolve these problems and shares no suffering in the harm he has caused us.
