What is "ObamaCare" Exactly? - a Definition

ObamaCare, aka “The Affordable Health Care Tax” is a private product offered by a few companies which we will be forced to purchase or face a “penalty” which the Supreme Court has ruled is actually a tax. The amount of this tax has yet to be fully defined, but those imposing it have promised it won’t be very much. ObamaCare purports to cover 10 million more people (it does not purport to cover 10 million “Americans” or “American citizens” but only people living in the United States, i.e. illegal aliens). It purports to cover these additional 10 million people but has no provision for adding even 1 doctor. It does however provide for 16,000 new IRS agents to collect the “penalty” which the Obama administration  insists is not a tax, even though we all know that the IRS is only empowered under the law to collect “legal and lawfully due taxes” and as previously mentioned the Supreme Court has ruled that ObamaCare IS, in fact, a tax.

ObamaCare was passed by both houses of a democratically controlled congress in spite of the fact that the chairman of the committee who wrote it stated he didn’t understand it, the then speaker of the House (Nancy Pelosi) stated that she hadn’t read it, and it was passed by a vote along party lines by a democratically controlled Congress who exempted themselves from it. It was signed by a president who smokes and wholeheartedly endorsed by a Surgeon General who is obese.

The “penalties/taxes” collected will be administered by a Secretary of the Treasury that cheated on his taxes, and we will be taxed for 4 years before anyone -- American or not – receives a single penny of benefits. The bureaucracy will be run by the same people who have bankrupted Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security and financed by a government that has gone from $10 trillion dollars in debt to $15 trillion dollars in debt in just 3 ½ years. Oh, and the estimated  $2,085 per family “penalty” will fall mostly on families with a combined income of $120,000 or less.

That about sums it up.
