Obamacare was introduced with deceit by the president, as he pretended not to know that millions would lose their present insurance coverage.
He had promised people could keep their insurer and doctor, but he knew the program was designed to force everyone over to Obamacare.
The ultimate aim is to get every person enrolled, even those who are insured by their employer and those who were granted waivers such as big unions, and big contributors to his election campaign.
Only those will escape who are congressional personnel and highly placed federal government officials.
At a press conference, Obama was asked about the millions who lost coverage: "Can you make changes so these people can keep their insurance?"
He replied, "No, I won't allow changes; it is now the law."
This is certainly not the reply one would make whose sincere concern was for everyone to have insurance coverage; rather it revealed an entirely different motive.
Why then Obamacare? What is its real purpose?
Consider then, why was the Internal Revenue Service chosen to run it? The IRS has the financial records of every taxpayer, anyone who has a bank savings account or an investment of any kind is known to them down to the penny.
The real name of this stick program is "Redistribution of Wealth," always a major goal of Obama when he promised "change." Already we have seen the penalty for not enrolling go from $60 to $100; it will grow to $1,000 or more.
Why was the IRS chosen to administer Obamacare? Because it knows the financial status of every taxpayer, everyone who has a savings account or investment income will be targeted to pay exorbitant premiums. Those who sacrificed to save money for old age will find it going fast.
Recent reports of people who had health insurance costing $850 annually will now pay $5,350 or more; but, even worse, there is no limit to the amount. It can be increased again and again at the will of the IRS until all the resources of the victim are gone.
Just who is monitoring the IRS to see if the money is really spent for medical services? The federal government will have full control of our money, and there will be no recourse to dispute it.
This is the real function of Obamacare - total control of us and our money. It gives Obama a powerful means to severely punish anyone who he perceives to be his enemy.
He will have achieved his fondest goal, total power over the nation's wealth and control of every phase of American life. His pretense that it is all about health has everyone fooled.
The national economy will go into depression as bank accounts are depleted and people will have to sell investment holdings to pay insurance premiums. Capital for industry and businesses will be unavailable. Discretionary spending will disappear, further shrinking purchases, the lifeblood of our economy.
Thousands of insurance company employees will lose their jobs. The most inefficient, incompetent, wasteful agency to run our economy is the federal government known for losing hundreds of billions each year for which they cannot account.
The compromise forced upon Obama to allow people to buy back their lost insurance, if they can, will be at higher cost, and only temporary because Obama is determined to force every individual onto Obamacare.
No wonder the Democrats did not want the public to know what was in Obamacare. Nancy Pelosi said, "They will find out when it is in use."
It is imperative to de-fund this thing immediately. Our freedoms and national economy are in grave danger.
