The nation was asked what they wanted in a President back in November, and they responded firmly and fiercely.
We The People were adamant about ending illegal immigration, taking more precautions regarding radical Islam, and ending Obamacare once and for all.
That last bit was non-negotiable. The American people were being rocked by ridiculously limited health care insurance by the program, that essentially guaranteed health insurance providers would be able to charge whatever they saw fit for coverage, while simultaneously making it far more difficult for businesses to contribute to the health costs of their employees. The entire system was a lose-lose for the American people and a huge, glaring, greedy win for the Big Pharmaceutical industry and the health insurance cartels.
Remember, Obamacare never provided health care at all; it was simply a way to fine Americans for not giving money to private companies.
Now, after turncoat republicans such as John McCain refused to comply with the demands of the American people to repeal and replace this ridiculous program, the entire system is on the verge of collapse.
“State officials sounded the alarm Wednesday on Capitol Hill about skyrocketing ObamaCare premiums as insurers across the country propose double-digit rate hikes – renewing pressure on Congress to act.
“Insurance commissioners and officials from Alaska, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma and Washington state all testified before a Senate committee on the 2018 premium hikes, which are being finalized over the next few weeks.
“In Alaska, premiums have increased 203 percent since 2013, according to Lori Wing-Heier, the state’s director of the Division of Insurance.
“’On average, the increase means that an Alaskan in the individual market who was paying a monthly premium of $344 per month in 2013 is paying $1,041 per month in 2017,’ Wing-Heier told the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions committee.”
“Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak told the panel he has been warning about ‘spiking rates’ for too long and those warnings ‘have been ignored at the federal level.’”
Americans have suffered enough from the last 8 years of democratic debauchery in D.C., and have already demanded on more than one occasion for this disastrous policy to be rescinded.
If the republicans in congress are unwilling to buck the Big Pharmaceutical lobby in order to commit to their constituents, 2018’s mid term elections could be a blood bath for the incumbent GOP.
