Senator Cruz is a very articulate Republican who stands with the people. His renderings of the Affordable Care Act are much more accurate than those of the Democrats. The Act initiated a free-fall objective destined to increase insurance costs and provide expensive copays to most US citizens. This will create a detrimental reduction in economic capability for the nation as more is spent on healthcare and less on rebuilding the workforce of the nation.
Senator Cruz recognizes this catastrophe and is attempting to eliminate the Act's burden of high cost from further degrading the middle-class that is already struggling under the enormous weight of unnecessary government involvement.
Senator Cruz understands that the federal governments default age curve for health insurance premiums is designed to impact baby-boomers more drastically than any other age group. This is due to a 1:1 rate for 21 years of age versus 3:1 for 64 and above. With the baby-boomer generation as the largest in the nations history, the federal government must require them to pay more due to their wealth holdings. As Senator Cruz stated, the President and those who voted to retain the Act are "wanting to see the American people suffer."
In addition, if the Act were so good for the country, the President would not need to distribute exemptions to his favorites discriminately. With this discrimination, the President has dictated a "class society" that will detrimentally affect the hard working middle-class. This action by the President is recognized as treason when the outcome is a detrimental burden on the hard working American.
Those in agreement with Senator Cruz, like myself, recognize that the Act does not make healthcare more affordable, provide better care, nor improve the already over-burdened healthcare professionals. Therefore, it does not actually result in any advancement of professional healthcare. What the Act does is create a higher burden on the current healthcare system by impeding the ability of the hospitals, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to attend to the patient that requires their support. This is quite evident as one reads the law and finds that it only applies to the insurance companies and their actuary tables.
This monopoly generated by the law then represents a burden upon the individual because each must endure a single national "one-size fits all" program. So why is it not the same for the President & Congress? Why so many exemptions?
