The Affordable Care Act which is also known as ObamaCare, was sold to the public by Obama and the socialist/democrats on the basis that you could keep your own policy and premiums would be more affordable by $2,500 per year. In addition, Obama told the American people that they would keep their own doctors!
People like me were told that the new law would have no impact on our family coverage and that The Affordable Care Act would make health insurance more affordable for our families. Well, as it turned out, it was just a lie to get the bill passed and for the American people to accept Obama’s law! Of course, this is class 101 for socialism – lie to the public no matter what to get to the goal!
The above assumptions were never challenged by the media. If they had been, then maybe the American people would have realized sooner that they were being lied to and played for suckers. The assumptions were accepted as fact by a media since they had an interest in seeing Obama succeed. The media let the American people down since they were either too lazy to read the bill, like those socialist/democrats who had passed the bill, or maybe because the media was just too partisan to blow it up before the reelection and thought it best to hide the facts from the American public!
I still in wonder why the American people still support the mainstream media!
In my opinion, the American people have not been well served by the mainstream media who have been unwilling to challenge the administration’s assumptions and to say screw you to the people! In addition, if the media had done their job correctly, the Obama administration would have benefited by the more adversarial coverage (sticker shock, the insurance market will unravel in a “death spiral” of ever-higher premiums and fewer signups as expected, loss of doctors, etc. ). They may have prevented some of the “glitches” and been very prepared for the “roll out”. Thus, the mainstream media is really to blame also!
In the end, I think that Backus is correct when he said that ObamaCare looked like a train wreck!
