The Republican Party lost control of the House of Representatives in 2018 due to broken promises made to get elected in 2016. With Democrats now required to pass new laws, the American people lost any hope for repeal of Obamacare, border security and immigration reform until at least 2021; and then only if the GOP will swear to keep those promises and send the bills to a re-elected President Trump.
Not a few conservative political advisers I respect are urging Trump to focus almost exclusively on border security including The Wall and to essentially give up on Obamacare in 2020. One is Dick Morris who
urges all Republicans to promise to leave in place the mandate that ALL health care policies continue to cover all pre-existing conditions (PEC’s) on the date of purchase, while agreeing to repeal up to ten currently mandated procedures.
Sadly, even if all Americans are not required to pay for sex-change coverage and other esoteric treatments, the requirement to cover all PEC’s would make premiums, and especially deductibles, affordable to low- and middle-income workers and small businesses, impossible. Not to mention the denial of health care freedom to individuals. You know, the rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness about which the American experiment was initiated.
A free people should be allowed to buy a policy mutually acceptable to buyer and seller in a free society.
Obamacare prohibits that freedom and essentially denies access to all but emergency health care to
millions since the deductibles are so high one would have to do without food, shelter, and/or energy to
spend so much out of pocket on health care. Yet these people are deemed “insured” when all their
Obamacare health insurance card is good for is as a toothpick.
Eligibility for Medicaid is not the same as being insured, yet we are supposed to buy all the Democratic
Party arguments that it is, while ignoring all those whom President Obama had promised would be able to
keep their plans and doctors, but weren’t. Oops, but since it’s a Democrat who lied, the media doesn’t
So, we can’t agree with Dick Morris. Yes, along with repeal we should advance one or more of the many
ways the uninsured would be covered without denying the right of an individual to buy policies that don’t
cover PECs or which cover them after 6 months to a year, as was the case before Obama’s Democratic
Party lies. And let’s not pretend that everyone is covered for all preexisting conditions under Obamacare.
They are not. One must first pay the deductible for any condition first, and millions can’t, right now.
Why can’t elected Republicans and Fox News report on the victims of Obamacare? Is it laziness? Fear of
the liberal Democratic Party media aka The Media? Surely they don’t assume they have the votes of lower and middle income voters after breaking their promises from 2017-2018 and after the Democrat has won the presidential election popular vote for 6 of the past 7 such elections.
We the conservative People don’t elect Republicans to go to D.C. to entertain us with clever soundbites,
committee grandstanding, or just to have an R there because we like the letter. Yes, the Democratic Party
and half the electorate long ago ceased to share Judeo-Christian American values. But elected
Republicans not named Trump seem to think its acceptable to merely replace a D rather than also
repealing their bad laws that make us less free, less prosperous, and less safe.
Call out the Democratic Party on moral and scientific result-based grounds and follow through when
elected. Go to the voters in 2020 with Trump to get a mandate and then enact the mandate. Restore
health care liberty. Secure the border. Reduce legal immigration to the needs of Americans who don’t
own multi-national corporate donors seeking cheap labor.
Resist the Siren Songs of the establishment in Georgetown. Instead hum God bless America and proceed
to bless it. Otherwise, eventually, the hordes of needy caravans will break down the gates of your
community as they have long ago broken down the middle class.
Repeal Obamacare and build The Wall in 2021. That is your job. Do it.
