Obamacare has turned into a badger for Badgercare and other state-sponsored health care programs throughout the United States.
The 2,500 page law already schemed to steal $500 billion from Medicare to pay for the program, and then the President relied on an accounting trick to present figures of balance for the program and its effects on Medicare. Congressman Paul Ryan indicted President Obama for counting the removed Medicare dollars twice, and now multiple times the Republican-led House has correctly and accurately voted forty times to have the terrible, unaffordable Affordable Care Act repealed.
With tens of thousands of pages of regulations rolling out of Washington D.C., along with President Obama's signatures and executive orders repealing and delaying key portions of his legislation, one wonders who the Democratic Party will survive this "train wreck of a law" in 2014 and then 2016 (if the law is fully implemented at all by then).
In Wisconsin, insurance premiums are rising because of President Obama's signature legislation, to such a degree that local and statewide media markets could not ignore the negative effects of federally micromanaged health care mandates. One has to wonder how US Senator Tammy Baldwin will explain supporting the health insurance mandate while serving in the House of Representatives. Hopefully, more leaders like Governor Scott Walker, who rejected the Medicare exchanges, and US Senator Ron Johnson, who voted against Obamacare, and the current House delegation from Wisconsin, including former Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan and George Sensenbrenner, will effect Obamacare's repeal.
