It’s all about the paper.
For many years I have been among that class of citizens anxiously desiring health insurance coverage for all Americans. I’d thought my reasons were sound: the country is fabulously wealthy; if we can afford luxurious salaries for sports people, media personalities, Wall Street financiers, the least we can do is ensure a minimal standard of life for the least among us. Also, too: most people get their health insurance through their employment, subsidized by the federal government, so it’s only fair and equitable that hardworking Americans who work for employers who don’t take advantage of the federal government tax subsidy to insure their workers should have the same access to life-giving medical care as everyone else who is subsidized by federal government tax dollars, like members of Congress.
And maybe all of that is still true in some way. And maybe the goal of universal healthcare is still a valid and desirable one, someday in the future, at a more convenient time and place, when the takers in society are more deserving.
But, folks, let’s admit the facts that with Obamacare we are facing Tyranny of the worstest kind. While the bill contains many bad things, like death panels and FEMA trailer camp prisons for conservatives, those abominations are the least of its problems. Today I learned the true cost of this hideous act, which bans the use of pre-existing conditions by insurance companies and expands health insurance to 30 million Americans: the amount of paper used to explain and implement Obamacare is a real lot. Stacks in fact. I mean, just look at the f0cking pictures of all that paper!1!!!1!!1
Speaker Boehner and his staff, rather than discuss needless plans of their own for making sure all Americans have access to quality healthcare and insurance, which is subsidized for many Americans by the federal government, unveiled a blockbuster of proof and evidence of the legislation’s Abuse Of Power. The Speaker had one of his underlings, who also probably has government paid for and subidized healthcare coverage, wheel in a big, big stack of paper that represents all the paper necessary to provide healthcare coverage through Obamacare to 30 million Americans who don’t have the same healthcare Speaker Boehner and his family and his legislative aids have access to, subsidized by the federal government.
Folks, I’d never in all of my life seen paper stacked that high. I’m almost too embarassed to talk about it. Who knew? Why wasn’t this information provided before? If I’d known, or had the slightest inkling of the fact that it would take this much paper to ensure that people with life-threatening pre-existing conditions could get health insurance coverage, I never would have supported it. But I’ll admit it now: all my previous arguments and beliefs about the necessity of make quality and affordable health insurance available for all just falls all to pieces when I see all this paper. I know of no way to confute such impeccable logic.
Hopefully President Obama will see this super stack of really tall paper and come to the same opinion of mind as I have done. There must be no delay. With the House having acted, they have passed the Take Healthcare Away From People baton to members of the U.S. Senate.
And this matter accomplished, the nation can turn to other important matters of less government like banning gay marriage.
