John McCain and the Swamp, 1 — the American people, 0

Two POS in a pod, nauseating.........
--------------------
 

Early Friday morning, Sen. McCain singlehandedly extinguished the last flickering hope of repealing the monstrosity that is ObamaCare by casting the deciding vote against the final repeal proposal, the so-called “skinny repeal.” As Politico put it, McCain went from being repeal’s savior to its executioner in a matter of days.

The words that should come to every American’s lips every time they read another story about the catastrophe of ObamaCare are these: Thank you, John McCain.

I have never been a fan of term limits – limiting terms is what elections are for – but Sen. McCain may have just changed my mind. He’s virtually a one-man argument for strict term limits.

I predicted at the beginning of this whole farce that at the end of the day we were going to be stuck with ObamaCare with all its colossal bloat and misbegotten mandates for one simple reason: too many Republican lawmakers have virtually no conservative convictions or principles. And if they do have them, they are well-hidden and the first thing thrown overboard when the New York Times starts yammering at them.

The only path back to sanity on healthcare is through the free market. ObamaCare needs to be repealed root and branch because it is an exercise in government-run, government-controlled healthcare, which is just a form of fascism. Literally. Fascism is, by definition, a system in which you are allowed to own your own business but the government tells you how to run it. We went to war in 1941 to stop that kind of foolishness from turning Europe into the dark continent.

The alternative to fascism, or socialism, or communism, or whatever you want to call it, is giving health insurers the freedom to develop any kind of insurance plans they think the American people want to buy, and giving the American people the freedom to choose the ones they want. There is no need for government to be involved in those decisions in any fashion. For our government to make these choices for us is an insult to the American people, and is a way of treating its own citizens as infants who are incapable of thinking and choosing for themselves.

The only proper role for government in health insurance is to enforce the sanctity of the contract. A health insurance policy is a contract between the insurer and the insured. If an insurer fails to fulfill his end of the contract by providing the services promised in the contract, the insurer can and should be sued in the interests of justice, and civil government should hold them strictly accountable. But that’s it. In fact, enforcing contracts should be the only role of government anywhere in a free economy.

If ObamaCare were to be repealed tomorrow, as it should be, and wasn’t replaced by anything, virtually overnight health insurance companies, because they want to stay in business and make money, would be competing with each other in a mad dash to offer a veritable cornucopia of health plans. You can make bank that these plans would include low-premium, high-deductible, catastrophic policies which would provide inexpensive and entirely affordable protection for ordinary Americans against the cost of major medical events. The Cruz amendment would have created this kind of market, but alas it was strangled in the cradle by Republicans and dumped in the Swamp.

Under a free-market plan, employers could make these plans available to their employees at a fraction of the current cost of health insurance. The employers would then be able to take what they save in premiums and contribute it to health savings accounts owned by their employees, which would rapidly enable their employees to accumulate enough to satisfy the deductible and to take care of ordinary medical expenses along the way.

The competition across state lines would be fierce, as insurance companies, without the promise of gargantuan, taxpayer-funded bailouts, would compete with each other for your insurance dollar. Health insurance companies would have to step up their game to earn business, rather than counting on the heavy hand of government to drive business into their nets by ordering every citizen to buy their product.

But thanks to John McCain, the opportunity to create that kind of marketplace is gone, perhaps for good, until our entire healthcare system collapses in on itself like a burning building.

Perhaps showing his true colors, before the final vote was called McCain literally walked across the aisle and engaged in a hug-fest with Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein and a gaggle of Democrats. In fact, McCain told his best buddies on the left that he wanted to stick a fork in the whole repeal effort: “Let’s get this over with,” he told them, before walking theatrically to the well of the Senate and delivering a dramatic thumbs-down (right), a gesture worthy of any Roman emperor in the Colosseum.

Democrat Senator Chris Coons of Delaware said, “I was trying not to jump up and down and smile.” Video before McCain strutted forward to vote shows

Sen. Schumer exuberantly pumping his fist in celebration – just what we hoped to see when we gave Republicans the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office.

The choice for John McCain was between government and the American people. Sen. McCain chose poorly. And it is the American people who will suffer.

That's right, if a senator shows any sign of a heart, lets ride them out of town on a rail. That is, after the tar and feathers.

A sign of a heart for who? This mess called Obamacare needs to be tossed. If you were the one being forced to pay for insurance you couldn't afford to use, you'd be squealing a different tune. You don't have a heart, and you don't care about anyone but yourself.

Dumb azz, if he had a heart he wouldn't deprive the country of
medical care, his vote would've passed the Bill, Thump hurt the
spoiled pig headed brat's feeling so he thinks this is a good way
to get back at him. You're wrong about this five ways to hell and
back making you clueless and there's nothing that can be said to
you for your understanding, it ain't gonna happen, so just keep
sucking your ******* thumb and whining about it.
 
Who's fault is it the healthcare system has failed on it's own,
cost more than what people can pay, wasn't dreamed up as
healthcare in the first place.

I have not talked to a single person who is unhappy with their Obama care.

You're talking to the group of gimmethats that get their stuff for free anyway. I haven't talked with a single person that actually works for a living, that is happy with it, and they all say they can't afford to use it. So there you go. They have no reason to lie. If it was so wonderful they'd be very happy.

Yep, if it were so **** wonderful why did it fail, why did all the
insurance companies drop it like the money pit it is.?
Why are 300 million people fighting for what little money they
have left since the mobumer health scam. Your tiny circle of
stupid liberals never purchased healthcare so your ridiculous
claim about those who aren't unhappy is pointless, and I wish
you could educate yourself on the pro and cons of anything.

 

Why do you suppose Trump won,,for the millionth and oneth time..???
