A North Texas resident recently received this notification via snail mail: “This letter is to notify you that your Medicare supplement insurance premium is changing due to the rising cost of healthcare. (Bold in the original.)
How, he muttered to a libertarian friend, could this possibly be true? Our Holy President and his minions promised over and over that if only we voted for his Affordable Care Act – so we could find out what was actually in it – we would see our medical insurance costs go down, not up.
Keep in mind that this “Medicare supplement insurance” is what’s commonly known as “Medigap insurance” designed to pay medical costs not covered by Medicare. People on Medicare who have a little savings of their own often opt to carry this insurance as backup and the premiums come out of their own pockets.
People who were forced onto Medicare by the government have also been told that because of the rising tide of Baby Boomers enrolling for benefits coupled with the low tide of birthrate Medicare benefits will begin to dwindle as well. So what they can expect in the imminent future is higher costs for lower care. Just what one would expect from a government whose primary purpose is to benefit a psychopathic ruling class and its sycophantic bureaucratic enablers at the expense of everyone else.
All of which should come as a lesson to everyone never to believe anything any government official ever promises. The Grand Welfare State was created via taxation based on intimidation and coercion foisted on everyone without a convenient loophole for avoiding or minimizing such taxes and built out of sandcastles of bait-and-switch offers, ponzi schemes, lies, hypocrisies and other two-faced criminal activities.
Of course the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare,” is not healthcare; it’s a health insurance boondoggle that enriches the biggest crony insurance companies. But what good is health insurance without healthcare? American military veterans have been entitled to healthcare for decades; it’s just that when they go into a Veterans Administration hospital to get the care to which they’re entitled they’re told it doesn’t exist. They’re still “entitled” to it, remember; there just isn’t any to get.
If that sounds like fraud just remember that government is a monopolistic law-making racket and the lawmakers naturally exempt themselves from the laws that they impose on everyone else, including Obamacare. The lawmaking ruling class, by the way, will never suffer from a lack of topnotch medical care.
Yet some people say they don’t believe in anarchy because “Anarchy will only result in the strong enslaving the weak.” Funny how government itself accomplishes exactly that.
