Senator Rand Paul was on Hannity last night. He says his ObamaCare health insurance now costs him four times more than he paid for this “old” insurance. Because of that, he would like to qualify for a “hardship exemption,” tongue in cheek, of course, but making a pertinent point. Paul says we must get Obama’s unconstitutional rewriting of “coercive” ObamaCare mandates into court. He believes SCOTUS will rule that Obama’s rewrites and/or delays of congressional law is unconstitutional. No doubt about that, it must get to the Supreme Court, but isn’t that sad commentary? Our Democrat-controlled Senate, where Rule of Law died and hope and change became the hope that we survive this administration’s lawless changes, makes SCOTUS imperative. Senator Paul notes that through ObamaCare you can get weight-control care and birth control, but your cancer cannot be treated at the best cancer hospitals. Slightly off-topic, but important: remember when Senator Paul tried to help his son sign-up for health insurance, and the son was automatically put on Medicaid, without signing up for Medicaid? I wonder how that turned out? Several fact-checking sources tried to prove it a lie, but in the end could not dispute it. Fact-checkers could only tell us what should have happened. In other words, they could not confirm that Paul’s claim was false. Here’s that incredible story:
“The other day, I actually tried to get my son signed up through the Kentucky exchange, you know, that the Democrats have said is so good. And I have here my son’s Medicaid card,” Paul said, holding up the card. “We didn’t try to get him Medicaid, I’m trying to pay for his insurance. But they automatically enrolled him in Medicaid. For a month, they wouldn’t talk to us because they said they weren’t sure he existed. He had to go down to the welfare office, prove his existence. Then the next thing we know, we get a Medicaid card.”
Paul went on to claim that “most of the people in Kentucky are automatically being enrolled in Medicaid” and later added that he doesn’t know if he himself is enrolled in Kentucky or Washington.
People being added to Medicaid rolls, without applying to be there, is huge and should not be swept under the rug. Medicaid is single-payer health care — exactly what Obama and Liberals want — Single Payer is the end game. Single Payer is a slam dunk for Progressives. Single Payer is America’s nightmare. It is reasonable to believe the ObamaCare screw-ups are designed to make it impossible to successfully work through an exchange for compliant insurance, with the ‘screw-ups’ being the vehicle to get us onto Single Payer. What easier way to accomplish it than to put you there, whether you want it or not, and really — how long does it take to fight the red tape to get off the Medicaid rolls? In the meantime, the only medical insurance you have is disgustingly lacking in actual ‘care.’
