The sad truth — Obamacare is built on lies
President Obama promised not to sign into law any bill that adds a dime to the deficit. It's only through some creative gimmicks employed by the Congressional Democratic leadership that his promise is kept. The Democrats plan to fund this massive bill by funneling money away from already established entitlement programs (like Medicare and Medicaid) and spending it on health care. The money siphoned from the other programs will then be replenished, and the Democrats get to claim that health care reform is deficit neutral, even though it's really indirectly adding trillions to the deficit.
Democrats also insist that you'll be able to keep your current insurance. This isn't true; employers will drop private insurance and force their employees into the government plan all in the name of cutting costs. If corporations are given the option of paying for their employees' private insurance versus paying a 10 percent fine for not providing their employees with insurance, they'll choose whichever option is cheaper, and that option is the fine. This means that millions of Americans will lose their current insurance.
Liberals seriously believe that the government can provide better coverage than the private sector. Do these liberals feel comfortable having their insurance administered by the same people who run the DMV or the postal service? I doubt it.
The Democrats argue that this multi-trillion bill will actually reduce the deficit. How can spending trillions of dollars reduce the deficit? Like the axiom goes: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
