Yesterday marked the 12th anniversary of Obamacare – also mendaciously and ironically known as the Affordable Care Act. But tell me, in the course of those 12 years of Obamacare, have you or anyone you know objectively benefited from it? I know that I haven’t and that nobody I know has. Then, I and most of them are Gen X Whites and not the intended beneficiaries of it.
But, 12 years is a long time, more than long enough to shake out any “birthing pains” in this sweeping piece of federal intrusion into the most personal segment of the private sector. I’d have expected to hear some crowing – or, at least happy, I-Told-You-So mention of – over its successes. But I haven’t heard or read or word.
So, tell me; has 12 years of Obamacare benefited you or anyone?
Life can be tough and full of stress, especially for American men these days. So, here’s some visual therapy to help us all live happier and, theoretically, longer. 😛
Sure, there’s no actual, direct evidence that staring at bouncing boobs will improve men’s health. But there’s plenty of indirect evidence to support this form of therapy. That being the case, I say one should do what makes one feel better in these matters.
This is a simple fact. You’re going to die. Something in this world is going to kill you, me, and everyone else currently alive. This is a fact, an incontrovertible fact, a cornerstone of our existence.
You’re Going To Die
It’s the response to this facet of reality by so damn many people in America that makes this video funny, ironic social commentary, and a useful example of why things like Obamacare were always doomed to fail.
Simply and inelegantly put, too many inside America’s borders are cowards who fear death far too much to even live. Indeed, they fear their own deaths – inevitabilities each and every one – so much that they won’t even let others live their lives.
Practice Is Meaningless If You Choke In Action
Despite having had seven years to come up with a working solution to the wrecked junker that is ObamaCare, Congressional Republicans choked when practice became reality. This was something that I feared would happen though, so I’m at least not shocked by it.
Removing May Take Longer Than We Thought
Please understand, however, that I always knew that the process of repealing and possibly replacing ObamaCare would be exact that, a process. I also truly do understand that it will be what most of us would consider a long and painful process.
The Democrats, quasi-led and certain sheltered by their precious token, Obama, made sure that ObamaCare would be nigh on impossible to repeal. It’s octopuslike – some would say Cthuhluian – tentacles stretch around and strangle the entirety of our nation healthcare and health insurance systems. That’s a hard thing to remove at a stroke.
Still though, the GOP has had seven freaking years to come up with a treatment plan. So far, going by their first effort – if one can call it that with a straight face, all that time for practice has been wasted.
