Obamacare: conservative logic versus liberal facts

WE HATE HEALTH CARE!You are a conservative. You know how to use your brain. You believe things because you have thought them through, and they make sense to you. They seem logical. Unlike liberals, who believe things that totally make NO SENSE AT ALL, just because they have “statistics” to back them up.

Nowhere is difference between conservatives and liberals more apparent than with Obamacare. Let’s take a look.

CONSERVATIVE LOGIC: Employers will reduce their number of full-time employees in order to avoid the costs associated with Obamacare. We will become a part-time employment nation!
LIBERAL FACTS: The  Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has found that part-time workers in the U.S. fell by 300,000 since the Affordable Care Act became law.  In just the past year, full-time employment grew by over 2 million.
VERDICT: Conservative logic sounds good, so it must be right. The statistics must have liberal bias.

 

CONSERVATIVE LOGIC: Millions and millions of people are losing their health insurance because of Obamacare! I know it must be true because I keep hearing these stories!

LIBERAL FACTS: The fact is, millions and millions of people had their policies cancelled every year, before the Affordable Care Act came into being. On average, only 17 percent of people ever retained coverage for more than two years prior to the Affordable Care Act becoming law. After the ACA became law, by contrast, only a relatively small number of people have been asked to change insurance policies because their existing policies were not compliant with the new standards:
Survey of cancellations since Obamacare

VERDICT: I heard tons of horror stories on T.V. This obviously outweighs these actual numbers. Numbers have a liberal bias.

 

CONSERVATIVE LOGIC: There will still be uninsured people after Obamacare is fully implemented. The whole point of Obamacare was to insure everybody. Therefore, Obamacare was completely pointless and achieved nothing.

LIBERAL FACTS: The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index shows that 15.9 percent of American adults are now uninsured, down from 17.1 percent for the end of 2013.  That is about 3 million to 4 million people who have coverage now who did not have it before.  The total number of Americans without health insurance is projected to reach its lowest number since 2008.

Plus, it is worth looking at why some of the people who remain uninsured got that way. There are currently 5 to 8 million people who can’t access Medicaid because their Republican political leaders oppose Obamacare. This isn’t a failure of Obamacare, it is a direct result of obstruction from conservatives. Nothing makes this more obvious than looking down at the breakdown by state of the total number of uninsured people before and after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act: notice that those states that opted in show dramatic reductions in uninsured citizens, while states that opted out do not show the same reduction: Uninsured numbers by state before and after Obamacare

VERDICT: All these numbers are confusing. The bottom line is that some people still aren’t insured, which means Obamacare didn’t solve every single problem, which means it was pointless and a complete failure. How can you argue with that kind of logic?

Clearly, you can’t.

    You just keep with that keynes attitude of yours and I’ll take my “other” school of economics and bet on a crash coming real soon. Perhaps a stock market and a dollar crash.

    I hope my conservative views are wrong in this case. I have a feeling they are not.

    Just keep on supporting your party for no other reason that to… support your party.

    The real party of racism
    The real party of fiscal liberalism
    The real party of bias
    The real party of hate
    The real party of “no change” and “no hope”
    The real party of “more government”

    To be fair most conservatives are for cutting spending on Military and other deficits but you’ll never hear this on you “bias” media.

    God Bless I have to go count my gold, silver and bitcoins and prepare for the damnation of my country by Mr. Obama and the regime.

    Boner and the Rethugs want to sue the President for waiving for two years the mandate for businesses with fifty or more employees to implement Obamacare.
    The President is a lawyer.
    Offer the plaintiffs a settlement.
    If the House leadership will sign a demand letter specifying that if the Rethugs will go on record, signatures and all, that the mandate be implemented on all businesses on August 1st, that the President would comply.
    Let’s see them explain THAT to their business buddies.
