A Brief Rant on the Looming American Health Care Disaster

Salty language ahead. I decided to blog angry, which I rarely do. Sometimes anger is clarifying.

Writers, artists, musicians, etc are set to lose their health care under Obamacare changes.

Sweet sweet poetic justice.

As I get put through the wringer over changes this asshole and his asshole supporters forced on us (we just lost our pediatrician because of Obamacare changes), I’m glad to know that same class of elites who supported this obvious disaster will suffer along with me.

I wrote in detail about my thoughts on Obamacare back when sane people were opposing it and idiot idealists were shouting, “Nah, man! We gotta fix the system, or maybe just break it until we get single payer and are all equally miserable under a bloated and ineffective nationalized health system.” 

Small changes? Sensible reforms? Screw that!

Nah! They’re leftists! They never met a bullshit program or obviously futile effort  which they didn’t think they could make work with their Magic Positive Energy Thought Beams. The entire American left has taken up permanent residence in Equestria.

If you supported Obamacare because you thought “well something–anything!–needs to be done,” you’ve contributed to the destruction of American health care. Thanks for that! I think I read more of the bill than Nancy Pelosi (and certainly more than Obama) and I could tell it was a mess from step 1.

I’ve been in close personal contact with the health care system for months now, with different family members and different maladies, and everywhere I go, it’s a complete clusterfrak, from the cardiologists driven out of business because they couldn’t afford the mandatory healthcare records computer system which cost $250,000 (which, of course, won’t ever be tied directly to the NSA with all your medical records: they pinky swear!), to the bizarre and contradictory rules which no one understands.

It is all going to crash, which is why they keep (illegally) postponing the implementation date and (illegally) giving exemptions to political supporters and donors.

If you supported it, I’m pretty pissed off at you right now. You weren’t paying attention to the details. And any marginally intelligent person knows that is where you find the devil, not in the grandiose abstractions peddled by this Imperialist Amateur posing as president.

And now my kids are losing a fine doctor because no one can make the system work any more, and they’re just putting out fires the best they can. Doctors are going out of business. Costs are skyrocketing.

It’s like a wise man once said:
