Affordable Care Act, in one... sentence

It's been beaten to death, but I can't help it.

"So, let me get this straight. This is a long sentence.

We're going to be gifted with a healthcare plan that we're forced to purchase 
and fined if we don't, 
which purportedly covers at least 10 million more people 
without adding a single doctor 
but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it,
passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it,
and signed by a President who smokes
with funding administered by a Treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes,
for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect,
by a government that has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese
and finally, financed by a country that's broke."

Yea, and we haven't even begun to find out the goodies in this bill. I may have shared here before so I'll be brief... I was surprised to get a sizable check from my health insurance provider. I received it the week after the Supreme Court ruling Obamacare constitutional. As it turns out Obamacare mandates what percentage of premiums must be paid out in claims. If the health insurance company doesn't pay out at least 80% of their premiums they have to refund the difference. Doesn't matter if you have lost money the last 5 years in a row, you have to pay back anything more than the 20% income. And I don't think that's 20% profit. Its 20% over claims payout.

Obamacare is socialism in a bill.

The real surprise will come on 2014!
