So they take your choice away, but you can have it back for more money…
Really? I just don’t know what to say anymore. Obamacare architect Zeke Emanuel said you can have your doctor, and nobody is stopping you from paying more to have your doctor. (Yet.)
“If you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that.”
This freak is touting “choice” when there really is no choice. Single male and don’t want to pay for pregnancy coverage? Nope, can’t do that. You don’t have a choice. Catholic looking for an insurance policy that does not cover contraception for your employees? Nope, not acceptable. You can choose from anything you want, as long as you choose from the menu the left-wing statists present to you.
For lefties, it’s the same routine for a broad range of subjects. Want school choice? Sure you can have choice, as long as your choosing from schools that we say are acceptable. Want a gun? Sure, no problem. You can choose from this list of approved firearms.
Emanuel also claimed “no one guaranteed you your premium wouldn’t increase,” when we all know President Obama claimed – over-and-over – families would experience a reduction in premiums of $2,500 per year. So again a popular retort for the left, claiming savings based on projections of super-high future mythical costs…
Kind of like baseline budgeting. You see, if you paid $10,000 per year for your health insurance in the past, next year your insurance would have been $15,000 (mythical figure), but thanks to Obamacare, you’re only paying $12,500. So you saved $2,500!
