Antoine Takes On the Washington Elite
C'est Moi, Antoine...
WHAT MAKES YOU SO SPECIAL?
Good Morning breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, December 9, 2013. I have a new friend with me this morning. His name is Antoine and he is a hardworking member of the ant family. Antoine is more than a little bit concerned about Washington's tendency to pass laws that they themselves are exempt from. Won't you give Antoine a few minutes of your time and hear what he has to say?
Bonjour mes amis. Il est moi, Antoine. This disaster called ObamaCare has revealed itself in all of its ugliness. Those you trusted to represent you in Washington have betrayed you.
Let's take a look at Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Is Sir Harry Reid going to sign up for the exchanges in the same way you have to? No, he isn't. Should he have to? Yes, of course, he should.The same is true for Lady Nancy Pelosi. It is also true of John Boehner. The list is long so let's just say that they will be the privileged among you who will never have to face the pain of sticker shock.
This may have been the first bi-partisan effort made by Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Reid. They worked together to get their people out from under the economic burden of government style healthcare.
Despite Nancy Pelosi's claim that she and everyone else would enroll in ObamaCare the truth is something quite different. She and her staff and the rest of the privileged in Washington will be receiving fabulous subsidies to pay for their insurance. How many of you will be receiving subsidies? Washington will be spared the pain of higher insurance costs. You will not be so lucky.
While you were sleeping and I was creeping around the White House, secret meetings were taking place to ensure that the Congressional elite would be spared the pain of the Unaffordable Care Act. President Obama was a willing participant in all of this. He changed the law by waving his magic wand, thereby exempting Washington. The provision to exempt Washington from higher costs isn't in the bill. But never mind, this President has the power to "change" your world if he cares to. Trust me on this, he cares to and he is doing it without consequence.
So, mes amis, where does this leave you? Sadly, it leaves you in a very precarious position. Many of you have already lost your insurance. Many more of you will lose it eventually. You were told that if you like your insurance you could keep it. That was a lie. You were told that if you like your doctor you could keep your doctor. That too was a lie. Now you are being told that if you like your doctor you can pay more to see him or her. Most of you will be shocked to see the true high cost of the Unaffordable Care Act. Many of you won't be able to afford it at all.
President Obama has dismantled a once great healthcare system to please the 15 percent of the population who didn't have insurance. In doing so he destroyed insurance for the 85 percent of the population that actually liked their policies. There is nothing just about this move. The problems of the 15 percent could have been addressed without destroying a system that worked. But, let's get real about this situation. ObamaCare was never about covering the uniinsured. It is about allowing the government to take control over one-sixth of your economy. It is about power. It is about socialized medicine. The one thing it is not about is YOU!
THey Have Turned Their Backs On You
VERS LE BAS AVEC OBAMACARE! Build a better system. Au revoir, Antoine....
