Quote of the Day: On Obamacare

In a Wall Street Journal editorial:

HHS is trying to conjure the appearance of progress and specificity even as it conceals everything that is relevant to ObamaCare’s performance.

    Cummings: ObamaCare like Mandela’s fight against apartheid

    “One of the things Nelson Mandela will always be remembered for is his push for reconciliation,” he said. “I respect the viewpoints of my colleagues on this Committee, as well as those of our witnesses, and I understand that the Affordable Care Act is not perfect.”

    “In that spirit, I hope we can work together in a bipartisan way to improve the Affordable Care Act rather than continuing to fight over its very existence,” he added. “We can no longer disregard the experiences of 50 million of our fellow citizens. We can no longer ignore the pain, the frustration, and the fundamental inequality of this nation within a nation.”

    So Mr. Cummings is admitting that ObamaCare is a legislation created specifically for minorities as a type of affirmative action in medical care? Therefore those who oppose it like Affirmative Action are presumed to be racist? Then by his own admission ObamaCare is a race based preference program.

    This is NOT what Obama and the Democrats told the country ObamaCare would be, hence he now admits he and Obama LIED to the country in 2010 to sell a race based preference program instead of merely providing health insurance to those without it. Is it any wonder that Democrats have not been yelling and screaming about 5 million people losing their health insurance because they assumed that most if not all of those people are not minorities. I call that racist and in that light the ACA should be challenged again in the SCOTUS on the grounds it is a race based preference program that is unConstitutional.

  2. Beneficiaries may be disproportionately minorities, but not most, unless of course you want to include women as a “minority,” which is sometimes implicitly done.
