And that means even the ones of their own making. These people are absolutely disgusting and craven, but these are the people that the collectivist think will do a better job controlling our access to healthcare than those evil profit making korporashuns. These people don’t have a clue about real world economics or how to make a country work, but they are experts at how to do campaigning, parting fools from their money, and at the use of government force to steal from the productive. From the article:
President Barack Obama is using the disastrous crash of his Obamacare website to extract cash and volunteer hours from his supporters. “By now, you’ve probably heard that the website has not worked as smoothly as it was supposed to,” Obama told his supporters in an email sent out late Tuesday.
“That’s why I need your help,” he said, in a video pitch that links to an online fundraiser. “The other side has already spent a whopping $400 million in anti-Obamacare TV ads,” says the language on the fundraiser site. “We don’t have to beat that, but we need to have the resources to fight back. Make a donation to support OFA today.”
The video illustrates Obama’s eagerness and ability to convert even the most awkward policy setbacks into high-profile political campaigns that can help his progressive coalition. The money may be used to support Obamacare, but it likely will also be used to help Obama wage his next election campaign — the 2014 midterm election.
In the video, Obama also offers his supporters a psychological reward for joining “Team Obamacare.”
The short of their message is that even though they spent over $625 million of tax payer money to put together a giant failure, that republicans somehow, who because they have all along been saying that these idiots healthcare system takeover would do exactly as bad as this website is doing, are raising money to stop this abysmal law from doing more damage, are to blame. This all amounts to “Obamacare’s website sucks ass!” so “Blame the republicans!” I am surprised they didn’t find a way to blame evil Boosh too. And their solution? Give us more money to campaign against these evil people pointing out we have no others but ourselves to blame for this failure. And the sheep respond.
Revelations like this is why I am certain that the people that believe an overwhelming all controlling nanny state government is ever the answer to any problem, especially when the problem is their insane jealousy of anyone making profits or being better off than they are, are either insane, masochists, or both.
“I’m asking you to be part of Team Obamacare… I’m asking you to help tell you friends, families, coworkers, classmates, neighbors and anyone else what the Affordable Care Act can mean for them,” he said.
“Remember, nobody ever expected this would be easy — change never is… [but] I’m absolutely confident that we will finish the job of making health care in the country not just a privilege for a fortunate few, but a right for all Americans to enjoy,” he insisted.
Actually, those of us that understood what your side was doing Mr. President knew that this wouldn’t work. We have pointed out that your side lied when they said this would made healthcare affordable, and even in its early stages we already have proof that it will cost far more than anyone imagined. This thing is nothing but a government takeover of our healthcare system and a wealth transfer mechanism that robs the young and healthy to pay for the old and a few without coverage. Your side is straddling the next generations, which are already on the hook for the trillions you have added to the debt in the past 5 years, with even more debt to buy votes now. Anyone still in denial about the fact that your Frankenstein system will make us all pay more, reduce quality & access, and not deliver any of the promises made otherwise about covering those without healthcare, is a fool.
We pointed out that your side lied when they said we would not be able to keep our existing policies, and that’s becoming more apparent with every day that goes by. Employer are now switching to a part-time model, or simply dropping their coverage offerings, as they realize the staggering costs pushed on them by this insane and broken Leviathan, with that trend only accelerating as more and more of them realize that without an exclusion – something only available to those connected and larding your campaign coffers – their business would not be able to compete and thus go under. Even the unions have turned against you as they see the ass rape your law will inflict on their Cadillac plans. It’s not a mistake that the political class opted to vote itself an exclusion from this giant shit sandwich they are making us all eat, either.
We pointed out that your side lied when it pretended it wanted to collect all manner of data – so much of it having nothing at all to do with healthcare – to make the system better, and the abuses are already on display. We have spent over a year now watching your side pretend that the criminal behavior at the IRS was random and limited only to discover it was a coordinated and wide reaching use of one of the most powerful government agencies to target political enemies. The frightening thing is that it is this same government entity, the IRS, which is supposed to oversee so much of this healthcare system. But I am sure people like me that do not want to become serfs of the state have nothing to fear or worry about. Even worse, we now know that your 3 week old website has already had its information given to people connected to identity theft operations. And anybody that at this point still doesn’t understand that your side is using this as a vehicle to expand the already frightening state’s ability to monitor our actions even more, is too stupid to live.
The list of other such lies is long and distinguished. And it doesn’t stop at the lying: the attempts at hiding the truth of how bad this thing really is from people, go real deep. The most ethical and open administration “EVAH!” indeed. That the left still finds so many idiots willing to give them money is just baffling. Oh yeah, speaking of people giving them money: it’s kind of ironic that the healthcare website is such a failure, but the sites you and your Team Blue members use to collect money from the idiots seem to be working like a charm…
UPDATE: In response to the massive criticism of many that they couldn’t even get a primary look at costs until they had completed the onerous and buggy Obamacare website pre-signup, the site’s minders instituted a change that allows people to have a quick pre-look at potential costs up front. Because these coders are fucking amateurs and this site is so shitty a monkey with access to a computer could circumvent its supposed security, I can give you a link directly to the DB they use to provide people with this upfront cost estimate.
Note that the premiums they would present their victims are ONLY for people that are in the middle of the 25-30 or the 50-55 demographic. So if you do not happen to be in either of those demographics, and specifically, you don’t happen to either be 27 or 50, your costs are going to be far higher, as many unsuspecting people are finding out, that you are originally led to believe. Don’t take my word for it: here is a DNC propaganda outlet trying to put a positive spin on that reality. The costs are quite frightening according to people that somehow completed their application as well.
I could say “I told you so”, but the stupid is strong with people that think government is actually interested in doing this right.
