Trump is not starting to make Hillary look good, but he may be making her look less bad. From Eric Peters on a guest post at theburningplatform.com:
Maybe it would have been wiser to just sit the last one out. Or even to have done like Khan in Star Trek II and – for hate’s sake – voted for her.
Why not, after all?
Obamacare wasn’t going away in any case; I think we all knew that, deep down. The idea of the feds ever voluntarily giving back power once acquired is preposterous. It is a thing only fools and children could possibly believe in, like Santa Claus.
Under her, we would still have Obamacare, of course. But under him, we are now to be dunned $3,000 for each year we elect not to be “covered.” This will have the effect of turning hundreds of thousands of people – possibly millions – into debt slaves or “criminals” or both. A person – young, not much money or perhaps self-employed – goes “without coverage” (but not costing anyone a cent) for say five years and now he “owes” the insurance mafia $15,000. Will the government seize his bank accounts and property and dun his paycheck to collect it on behalf of the mafia?
Instead of the so-called Individual Mandate, which belts us with a punitive tax paid to the governmentannually for failing to purchase coverage, we are to be dunned by the insurance mafia – backed by the government – if we elect not to be covered and two to three times as much.
That is the Republicans’ idea of a “market-based health care reform.”
Big corporations using the government to rob us. We might as well all be stamping out license plates in a federal pen someplace.
