As expected, Obamacare is imploding. In Wisconsin we are choosing between Ron and Russ for the Senate. Russ voted for it and we voted him out. Why on earth would we want him back at this serious point in time.
On the other hand, Ron sees it his way:
Grave damage is being done to our nation’s health care system by this law that President Obama and Democrats in Congress pushed through on a strictly partisan basis. Americans are being harmed now by the law and losing their freedom. Their livelihoods and their economic security are being put in jeopardy and the health insurance plans that they are now required to buy may not even meet the needs of their families. If we continue on this path, the future of our health care system is rationed, lower quality care, increased medical costs and severe limits on medical innovation.
So are you going to go with Russ and proven failure (motto: let’s throw enormous amounts of taxpayer money at the problem to show we are at work) or be serious and go with Ron to work on health care legislation that might really be reform. It is, as they say, your choice.
Sidebar: The WSJ reports that Democrats like Elizabeth Warren are fighting the Aetna-Humana merger on the basis that:
“The health of the American people should not be used as bargaining chips to force the government to bend to one giant company’s will.”
The WSJ notes the gall on disclosure of information from Aetna but doesn’t really tie that the problems caused by the Democrats necessitate the merger so Aetna can survive Obamacare. End sidebar
