No doubt, small business owners are extremely skeptical of this administration’s belief in the efficacy of the market system to produce lower prices through competition. That was supposed to be the selling point of this plan, but the exact opposite is already happening – higher costs and less availability of treatment.
The most shocking news hit last week. Hundreds, maybe thousands, of oncology clinics turning away cancer patients who are on Medicare. I ask you as an American did you ever think you would hear something as incredible as that! We are now seeing daily and weekly examples of this administration’s inability to govern, let alone lead the nation. It seems once an initiative is passed he moves on to shooting basketball, vacations, dinner and concerts with celebs (in the closed-to-the-public White House) and endless campaigning. Wait, he was re-elected right?
Obama – as someone who believes in activist government – should have a vested interest in seeing that federal programs actually work efficiently. I don’t see much evidence that this huge healthcare initiative is anywhere near the top of his priorities. He is hellbent on getting immigration law reformed and slanted in the Democrats’ favor. We all know that undocumented Democrats can be a huge voting bloc come election time. One thing is clear: Obamacare will fail and the healthcare industry as we know it may collapse if he doesn’t start being president instead of just playing the part.
In closing, let’s recap his domestic legacy thus far: 50 million people on food stamps, out of control national debt, huge unemployment rates, spiking poverty rates, the country’s credit rating was downgraded, and he presides over a divided Congress whose approval rating is lower than his…need I go on? I think not. When they build the Obama library the book listing all of his accomplishments will be blank.
