Hey, NYT, admit the Tea Party was right

The New York Times called them racist.


Hypocrites because some of them were 65 or older and had Medicare -- thrust upon them by federal law.

Now, eight years later, the New York Times is forced to admit that the Tea Party was right; Obamacare was designed to fail so that Democrats could use that failure to impose socialized medicine on the nation.

From the New York Times:
The fierce struggle to enact and carry out the Affordable Care Act was supposed to put an end to 75 years of fighting for a health care system to insure all Americans. Instead, the law’s troubles could make it just a way station on the road to another, more stable health care system, the shape of which could be determined on Election Day.
Seeing a lack of competition in many of the health law’s online insurance marketplaces, Hillary Clinton, President Obama and much of theDemocratic Party are calling for more government, not less.
The departing president, the woman who seeks to replace him and nearly one-third of the Senate have endorsed a new government-sponsored health plan, the so-called public option, to give consumers an additional choice. A significant number of Democrats, for whom Senator Bernie Sanders spoke in the primaries, favor a single-payer arrangement, which could take the form of Medicare for all.
Donald J. Trump and Republicans in Congress would go in the direction of less government, reducing federal regulation and requirements so insurance would cost less and no-frills options could proliferate. Mr. Trump would, for example, encourage greater use of health savings accounts, allow insurance policies to be purchased across state lines and let people take tax deductions for insurance premium payments.
You can stop Hillary, or you can turn away from Trump.

Your choice.

Your vote.

Your conscience.

But oh, I will remind the pundits who aid and abet. Or attempt to. Trump will win without them.

  1. "Hillarycare" failed badly in the 1990s. Now she has another shot at it. If she is elected we will be in for a scary ride. - Elric

  2. As long as there is health INSURANCE which people use to pay most of the cost of their health care, health CARE will not be inexpensive. Health insurance acts just like student college loans to create an incentive for costs to rise. Excessive government regulation of the health care industry also acts as a cost driver. If government policies promoted competition in the industry and most people had to pay out of pocket for health care, chances are health care would be more affordable in the long run. As people live longer and expect higher standards of care for longer periods of time, bending the cost curve down becomes a more difficult challenge. Obamacare's approach to that problem is absolutely the wrong way.

  3. "Medicare for all." Youngsters need to remember that 1) we paid into Medicare, and 2) Medicare doesn't pay for everything.

  4. Only real solution is that of the Jacobins in the French revolution. Remember? Those people the left used to idolize? They abolished guilds. Translation: they abolished licensing.
