"Lemon laws were made to protect us. Meanwhile, the ObamaCare law was make to screw us..."
Most of us that who have some age remember "lemon laws". They were to protect us from buying something that was either misrepresented or just plain bad. Like a car for example. If a car would spend an extraordinary time in the shop for repairs, it was called a "lemon". And "lemon laws" were constructed to protect us from bad products.
I am thinking the "lemon laws" also need to apply to our "Affordable Health" program. It seems there has been a bit of misrepresentation here. Like the word "affordable". Okay, okay - maybe the representations were just plain lies.
Today in the paper was yet ANOTHER article about folks who have received a "surprise" on their health care costs. This time the "Whack-a-mole" game of health care costs has popped up in Medicare Part "D". That be the drug prices for seniors. About 1 in 5 seniors will face a $8 to $43 per month increase in 2016. Ouch.
One of the ironies with this increase is seniors have recently been told there will be no bump in their Social Security this next year as there is zero inflation. Really? Could have fooled me! In fact, I am still waiting for my $2,500 reduction in health care insurance due to the passing of ObamaCare. Remember that promise? That was buried in all the crappola the Administration gave us prior to the Democratic Congress shoving this manure down our throats?
I seem to remember a whole bunch of people who are now in Congress telling us once they get to Washington the first thing they would do is repeal, replace or at least fix this monster. Have not heard much of this talk as of late. Like na-da. Hello? Those of us who did NOT vote for this thing are stuck with a lemon. Not just a little lemon, a whole lot of lemon.
Some pundits believe ObamaCare is starting to die under its own weight. And that might be true. Then after it dies, then what? What happens in "the day after"? Again, have not heard much about this from anyone.
At least our focus the next two weeks will be the Climate Change Conference in Paris. And once that is over, we will be in Christmas season. Then the New Year, and then 2016. And once we get into the silly season of campaigning, there will be more promises about fixing or killing ObamaCare. Meanwhile, our healthcare costs continue to climb. And we are stuck with it.
Hello? Lemon laws? Are you still around? We need you now more than ever.
