Dear Professor: ObamaCare never fooled me

Put me down as someone who always knew that ObamaCare was a bad idea.  I got very suspicious when it was rushed through Congress over Christmas 2009.  I knew that something was wrong with this bill when they had to give away stuff to get the 60th vote in the US Senate.

Today, we got another video (I believe it's # 6) from Professor Gruber:

"In a 2011 conversation about the Affordable Care Act, MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, one of the architects of the law more commonly known as Obamacare, talked about how the bill would get rid of all tax credits for employer-based health insurance through "mislabeling" what the tax is and who it would hit."

Frankly, I am not really shocked to hear this. To be honest, I was not expecting videos from the professor, but I had a feeling that we would get to the truth somehow.

ObamaCare was a horrible piece of legislation - 2000 pages of stuff that no one read or understood .Most of these Democrats, currently out of a job because they voted for it, probably expected The Supreme Court to kill it.   

The public is now learning how the 'ObamaCare sausages" were made and it's really ugly. However, what's really ugly is that the sausages taste awful and are very expensive, as we learned again today:

"The Obama administration on Friday unveiled data showing that many Americans with health insurance bought under the Affordable Care Act could face substantial price increases next year — in some cases as much as 20 percent — unless they switch plans."

But there is a catch to switching plans;  higher deductibles and out of pocket expenses!

I always had a funny feeling that Obama Care would turn out this way, i.e. higher costs and less choices!
