It looks like the republican’s replacement for Obamacare might just cramp the style of some less than industrious welfare recipients in America. While the left is doing their best to use the numbers of uninsured to bully republicans into backing down from the promised amendments, Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said what we’ve all been thinking about the changes.
Chaffetz appeared on CNN’s New Day Tuesday morning to clear up a few misconceptions about the replacement for Obamacare. He made it clear that Republicans are taking very seriously the responsibility given to them by the American people to solve this problem. Chaffetz, very diplomatically, explained that while it’s possible that fewer Americans will be covered in the immediate future with the new health care plan, those that are covered will have lower deductibles, better rates, and more flexibility to see the practitioner of their choice.
While this might seem like the republicans are taking a hatchet to the healthcare of low-income families, the truth is that the bulk of those being cut, are the non-working “professional welfare collectors.” Chaffetz points out that healthcare is going to once again be governed by the free market, and that will make a better product all the way around. This means that, just like everything else we buy, we will have to choose what to spend our money on. Does that mean that possibly some luxuries will have to be forgone in order to make sure that your family is covered in case of an emergency? Possibly, but that’s kind of just a “welcome to adulthood” lesson we all have to learn.
As the good Congressman put it:
AMERICANS HAVE CHOICES AND THEY’VE GOT TO MAKE A CHOICE AND SO MAYBE RATHER THAN GETTING THAT NEW IPHONE THAT THEY JUST LOVE AND THEY WANT TO GO SPEND HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS ON THAT, MAYBE THEY SHOULD INVEST IT IN THEIR OWN HEALTHCARE. THEY’VE GOT TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS THEMSELVES.
Last year alone, almost 5 million Americans were kept from the healthcare practitioner of their choice due to the “Affordable Care Act.” The havoc that it wreaked on the American Healthcare system caused deductibles to skyrocketed and the premiums of the formerly happily insured doubled and even tripled in some cases. The argument can be made that health care needed some amendments prior to Obamacare, however, the Affordable Care Act was nothing but a socialist program that got rammed down the throat of the American people, with absolute disregard to the needs or wants of the majority of hardworking Americans.
