Oh, that fake news media and those weak Republicans! How many times in recent weeks have they warned of twenty-something million Americans would lost their health insurance if Obamacare was repealed? It’s been a near constant mantra used to bully and intimidate politicians into not doing the right and honest thing for Americans.
To confirm just how dishonest and spineless the Establishment media and politicians have been, check this bit of information out:
July 27, 2017: If the individual mandate were to be repealed and Americans were no longer required to purchase the Obamacare-mandated levels of health insurance coverage, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) believes that 15 million Americans would no longer purchase such coverage.
Some, including Jonathan Gruber, believe that the CBO is overestimating the impact of repealing the mandate. Gruber was one of the architects of the healthcare law.
Politically, the impact of these projections is significant since the individual mandate has long been the most unpopular part of Obamacare. Recent polling shows that two-thirds of Americans would like to see it repealed. For many, the idea of the government forcing anybody to buy anything is in conflict with America’s commitment to individual freedom.
Additionally, if the CBO projections are correct, there are 15 million Americans who would directly benefit from the repeal. Typically, when people are directly impacted by a law, their support or opposition is more intense than that of more casual observers.
15 MILLION Americans want out of Obamacare but are only staying in it out of fear of mandate penalties – and hardly a word is being said regarding this fact. That is far more than half of the millions who the media continue to repeat will be left without health insurance should Obamacare be repealed.
It means a MAJORITY currently being forced to have Obamacare want out of Obamacare but the media, the Republicans, and the Democrats aren’t sharing this fact.
Gutless rats the lot of them.
There are very few figures in Washington D.C. willing to share the truth with the American people.
The most notable among them is the POTUS Trump and the system is doing all it can to destroy him because of it.
