Obamacare - You Support We Reward
Remember when Nancy Pelosi said "we have to to pass the bill in order to find out what's in the bill"?
Within those 2000 pages consists of a number of goodies rewarding subsidiaries (such as unions with $2 billion) which own the Democrats. The House Energy and Commerce Committee has discovered that the health care law has allowed the government to pay out $2 billion to unions, state public employee systems, and big corporations to subsidize health care costs for early retirees. O where O where has the money gone? Let's take a look at exactly which pockets the Liberals have lined with Obamacare money.
From The Washington Examiner:
"According to the new report, the biggest single recipient of an early-retiree bailout is the United Auto Workers, which has so far received $206,798,086. Other big recipients include AT&T, which received $140,022,949, and Verizon, which received $91,702,538. General Electric, in the news recently for not paying any U.S. taxes last year, received $36,607,818. General Motors, recipient of a massive government bailout, received $19,002,669.
"The program also paid large sums of money to state governments. The Public Employees Retirement System of Ohio received $70,557,764; the Teacher Retirement System of Texas received $68,074,118; the California Public Employees Retirement System, or CalPERS, received $57,834,267; the Georgia Department of Community Health received $57,936,127; and the state of New York received $47,869,044. Other states received lesser but still substantial sums.
"But payments to individual states were dwarfed by the payout to the auto workers union, which received more than the states of New York, California, and Texas combined. Other unions also received government funds, including the United Food and Commercial Workers, the United Mine Workers, and the Teamsters."
Hold on a minute.... I thought that the purpose of this law was that it would lower health care costs, and not to simply dole out money to only those who supported the bill, which is now law. And these Leftist "spread the wealthers" - who are so generous with NOT their own money but thieving other peoples' money - really expected us to believe their load of malarcky when they claimed that this law was non-partisan and would benefit all the people. Do I see pigs flying? It certainly seems like this law is only targeted at helping certain groups in our society (anyone who supported the passage of Obamacare) and not the whole of society, and sure as heck not the common good. Oh... That claim was the Democrats using smoke and mirrors, by any means necessary, telling distortions and lies just to get the bill passed. These Democrats are throwing the taxpayers' money down the toilet. I thought this POS law was supposed to be about health care. No, it's all about paying off the Leftist ideological extremists who backed this government piece of garbage which is filled with mountains of red tape. This was all about power and control. The Democrats couldn't give a rats a$$ about health care. Think about it, these sadistic immoral twisted loons think killing an unborn child is health care. They think funding Planned Parenthood is considered essential to running our government. These libtards whine about values supposedly being thrust upon them when the fact is they shove their evil immorality down our throats when they force Americans to fund the murder of innocents. Do these people have a consience? These people live on their selfish egos and are ghouls who prey upon the weak and most vulnerable in our society. They make the claim that Republicans and conservatives are all about money when in fact they choose that the weak and vulnerable in our society are not worthy of living because of the money it would cost to take care of them. Congress needs to stop throwing the taxpayers' money down the toilet. How would these Green weenies and red rhinos like it if the taxpayers said enough is enough and there was a tax revolt?
