Reid sent the GOP a letter cautioning them about the “devastating effects” that getting rid of ObamaCare would have on senior citizens who fall into the Medicare donut. The only devastating effects of repealing ObamaCare will be a swift and humiliating defeat for the Dems.
The Medicare donut is the difference between a patient’s initial coverage limit and the amount of catastrophic coverage in the Medicare Part D prescription drug program.
After the Medicare beneficiary goes above the prescription drug coverage limit, the patient is responsible for the full cost of prescription drugs until their bill reaches the catastrophic coverage threshold.
There won’t be any donut hole doomsday if ObamaCare is repealed. First of all, Medicare Part D only covers 50% of medications. If senior citizens need extra medication coverage they can purchase a private Medicare supplement (Medigap) plan for a reasonable amount of money.
The national average cost of a Medigap policy for a 65-year-old female is $1,159. That’s about $3 a day. That’s a whole lot cheaper than ObamaCare! Socialist healthcare will cost $2.49 trillion dollars a year. That’s about $6 million dollars a day! If Republicans are successful, they plan on filing the donut hole and fixing Medicare.
Dirty Harry Takes A Shot At Boehner
In his fiery letter, Reid vowed to jeopardize any progress made by Republicans and personally guaranteed he would block any efforts aimed at repealing the trillion dollar mess. In March of last year, voters overwhelmingly said NO to ObamaCare. It comes as no surprise that less than a year later, the public outcry against ObamaCare is still growing.
A recent Rasmussen Report tells it all. For the second time this month, 60% of likely voters at least somewhat favor repeal of the national health care law, while the number who expect health care costs to increase is at its highest level since August.
A national telephone survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports shows that a whopping 49% strongly favor the repeal of ObamaCare. Only 38% oppose the law’s repeal, and a measly 29% strongly oppose its repeal.
Repeal Of ObamaCare Is Possible
After having the healthcare legislation shoved down their throats, many Americans have given up hope and think ObamaCare can’t be repealed. It’s true that even if the GOP gets the necessary votes to get rid of the bloated bill, Obama can use his Presidential clout and veto it. However, if Republicans can convince 1 out of 4 conservative Democrats to change their mind they can override Obama’s veto.
Despite all this doom and gloom, many people still believe there must be a few good things hidden underneath the surface of ObamaCare. I can’t blame them. With a $1 trillion dollar price tag, the liberals must be nuts not to give everyone at least something in return for their enormous out-of-pocket investment.
Remember the saying; nothing in life is for free? Well, that pretty much sums up ObamaCare. Unfortunately, the liberal architects of ObamaCare don’t have hearts of gold. There is nothing free in it for you or for me. The only things we get are tax increases, insurance increases and medication price increases. We certainly get the short end of the stick.
However, people who make no money, pay no taxes, and are already sucking on the government teat will get free healthcare. Regular, hardworking Americans will be paying theirtab at the hospital, the doctor’s office, and that specialist we couldn’t get into because the lines were too long. Enough is enough! Time is running out. We must stop ObamaCare before it is too late!
