Barack Obama, who is pushing gun control measures in case "they help only one child," can now take credit for pushing seven million men, women and children off of their current employer-sponsored healthcare plans according to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office on the devastating effects of Obamacare.
The president, when lobbying for his bill, solemnly promised "if you like your healthcare insurance, you can keep it. End of story."
But as the sainted Paul Harvey would say, there is...the rest of the story. Specifically, that Barry was lying like a prayer rug, and knew perfectly well that Obamacare was specifically designed to encourage employers to drop healthcare coverage and make previously secure workers into wards of the state.
Still, if you are losing the health insurance you liked (either by having an employer dump it, or having the costs raised by as much as 100% for self-insurers), you might be better off not complaining about it too loudly now that Obama has firmly established the (ahem) "legality" of blowing American citizens out of their shoes with drone attacks.
Of course, the legal permission is strictly limited to Americans working for Al-Qaeda. Or (insert DOJ-approved weasel-wording here) "an associated force." You know, like the Ted Nugent fan club, the Tea Party, or maybe the NRA.
Moreover, the subsequent delivery of a hellfire missile to your door in 30 minutes or less is permitted even without a trial, and with no evidence that the individual is engaged in an active plot to attack the United States (say, by requesting a balanced budget or photoshopping pictures of Barry).
In other words, if you're among the millions who'll be losing their healthcare insurance because of Obamacare, you'd better damn well like it.
End of story.
