To This Day MOST Members of The US Congress STILL have NO IDEA How ObamaCare Actually Works…
And they don’t care – as long as those Big Pharma, Health Insurers, and Hospital Systems, campaign contributions continue to roll in.

The actuality of ObamaCare sits as a reminder why Socialism simply does NOT work. ObamaCare definitely does not work for Americans working in the marketplace.
As the younger generation of Americans is finding out it is even less better for them – in fact it is impossible to maintain.
Take, for example, a young person starting out after college, with $100,000 in Student Loans, who now is faced with the simple fact that almost 50% of their take-home pay will now have to go to Health Insurance. Adding another 25% for the Student Loans leaves very little left to live on – certainly not enough to buy a house, a decent car, and there is NOTHING available to start a family.
Ah, we’ve come to the REAL REASON for ObamaCare – Agenda 21, and the financial enslavement of an ENTIRE generation of Americans…
Surprise, surprise… Delivered to you by the US Democratic Party. Step up and have those ankle-chains applied sucker.
Most people never even noticed that when ObamaCare actually passed, and was signed into law by the Obama-Nation, that drug prices increased sometimes 400%. See the video below:
But, worry not, Congress will do NOTHING about this issue. Why? Because the same Big Pharma FINANCED most US 2018 mid-term election to protect this profit.
ObamaCare is a Huge RIP-OFF of America…
Not only did Big Pharma gouge out its chunk of flesh, but so did the rest of the so-called “providers.” Worse yet, the Health Insurers increased their charges exponentially.
Nitwit Obama was so impressed with himself over the idea of ObamaCare that he gave away the store to Big Pharma and the insurers to get the so-called Affordable Care Act (ACA) legislation passed. Obama’s band of Chicago-based “Community Organizers” were easily taken to the cleaners.
It may be that neither Congress and the American people actually read the details of the so-called Affordable Care Act (ACA) before it came up for a vote, but Big Pharma, the Hospitals, the health insurers certainly did.
Long before the Congressional vote Big Pharma, etc., already had the votes it needed to make sure they would profit immensely.
Can Trump Actually Fix US Health Care?
Here is what Trump said in October of 2016:
“One thing we have to do: Repeal and replace the disaster known as Obamacare. It’s destroying our country. It’s destroying our businesses. You take a look at the kind of numbers that that will cost us in the year ’17, it is a disaster. It’s probably going to die of its own weight. But Obamacare has to go. The premiums are going up 60 , 70 , 80 percent. Bad health care at the most expensive price. We have to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
He is on the right page…
Trump also said, in 2015:
The insurance companies have total control over politicians
Q: ObamaCare is one of the things you call a disaster.
TRUMP: A complete disaster, yes.
Q: Saying it needs to be repealed & replaced.
Q: Now, 15 years ago, you called yourself a liberal on health care. You were for a single-payer system, a Canadian-style system. Why were you for that then and why aren’t you for it now?
TRUMP: As far as single payer, it works in Canada. It could have worked in a different age. What I’d like to see is a private system without the artificial lines around every state. I have a big company with thousands of employees. And if I’m negotiating in BY or NJ or CA, I have like one bidder. Nobody can bid. You know why? Because the insurance companies are making a fortune because they have control of the politicians. They’re making a fortune. Get rid of the artificial lines and you will have yourself great plans. And then we have to take care of the people that can’t take care of themselves. And I will do that through a different system.
But it was the “State of the Union” message in January of 2018 that gets people’s attention:
“To speed access to breakthrough cures and affordable generic drugs, last year the FDA approved more new and generic drugs and medical devices than ever before in our history. We believe that patients with terminal conditions should have access to experimental treatments that could potentially save their lives.
People who are terminally ill should not have to go from country to country to seek a cure–I want to give them a chance right here at home. It is time for the Congress to give these wonderful Americans the “right to try.”
One of my greatest priorities is to reduce the price of prescription drugs. In many other countries, these drugs cost far less than what we pay in the United States. That is why I have directed my Administration to make fixing the injustice of high drug prices one of our top priorities. Prices will come down.”
ObamaCare was just one more Cloward-Piven Scheme Designed by the Socialist/Progressive/Globalists To Destroy America…
Both Obama and Hillary Clinton were avid Saul Alinsky 12 Steps for Radicals advocates. Both knelt at his feet. The destruction of the United States was, and is, their ultimate goal.
“From Kurt Nimmo at Infowars.com, we learn: It is a mistake to believe the Cloward-Piven Strategy is scheme cooked up by academic Marxists of “New Left.” In fact, “the destruction of capitalism in America is a meticulous plan on the part of the global elite to consolidate power and destroy all opposition.” It has nothing to do with liberating the proletariat, but rather subjecting them to “world-socialism, scientifically planned and directed” and devised to transform the planet into a high-tech prison gulag.”
So, what is Trump going to do?
Trump is proceeding slowly and carefully. The ObamaCare system built up very slowly with providers having plenty of time and insider information on how to maximize their influence and hence their income from the system.
One major problem is that Big Pharma has five lobbyists for every Member of Congress, each carrying bags of money, supposedly for election campaigns. Trump, consequently, gets absolutely no cooperation from Congress. Trump has to do what he can by Executive Order.
The biggest problem with US Health Care is not “coverage for everyone.” It is “cost.” Virtually every so-called “provider” out there gouges. Every one. We are NOT going to be able to revise US Health Care without a form of price control. Frankly, I think we could, very easily, reduce overall health care costs by 75% – then we could worry about how to pay for it.
Big Pharma has been able to place its people inside of Federal Agencies that regulate US Health Care. Not a good thing. Trump, however, has taken control of these agencies.
Trump knows, as do most smart Americans, that we have to make US Health Care, a Regulated Utility, much like water, electric or gas companies. They are generally regulated by a public utilities commission. If we don’t we are going to bankrupt America – out of sheer greed.
