Health care choice another of Obama's broken promises

(Continued)

And if you don’t like it? Well, you don’t know or understand the new, government-approved, meaning of the word “like.” Big Nanny is now explaining that while we may have thought we liked our plan, we weren’t supposed to like it because it didn’t have all the things that Obamacare now requires health plans to provide.

You must buy benefits you don’t want at a price you don’t want to pay because government knows better than you what you need, which is that everybody in America needs the same things. You know, just like a house in the Deep South needs the same kind of heating and insulation that one in the Dakotas does. You’re much too dumb to make those choices yourself.

Sure, they’re taking away your plan. But they’re offering you a better one, and declaring that, in many cases, it won’t cost you any more – it may even cost less if you qualify for subsidies.

More for less – what’s not to like? And who’s going to pay for it? Don’t worry about that. Stop being so negative.

As critics of Obamacare are belatedly saying, this is all by design: Reduce choice and raise prices in the individual and small-group insurance market to force millions of people into the Obamacare exchanges. Destroy the private market so the liberal dream of a single-payer, government-run system can be achieved.

It’s a system sold and built on lies.
