Dissecting Obamacare

From CBS's 60 Minutes:

"Obamacare is a government takeover of health care, that's what the Republicans say. Obamacare is the OPPOSITE of a government takeover of health care. Obamacare is the taxpayers intervening to pay the private sector for their already inflated prices that they charge for health care."

Watch or read the rest here.

This is why I hate the ACA, in spite of the fact that I have personally benefited from it: it's one of the worst examples of crony capitalism I could ever possibly imagine, exceeding, just in terms of balls, the bank bailouts and the notion of "too big to fail." That is, you, the taxpayer, are paying for most of my health insurance, and it's like buying a McDonald's hamburger for five hundred dollars.

People who call Obama a "socialist" are among the most flibgibberty idiots in human history. Instead, our President is one of corporate capitalism's biggest whores. You conservatives would love him if you weren't so blinded by your own weird psychological issues.
