I hope you all had a good Christmas and will have a better new year.
And how about that beautifully wrapped present tied with that big red ribbon and inside a can of worms otherwise known as Obamacare? Instead of our houses, I think this gift should have been placed under the trees of special-interest groups, back-room buddies, lobbyists and drug companies.
As this monster begins to emerge, businesses are running for the hills in droves. They are dropping coverages, doctors are beginning to drop Medicare patients and the drug companies are licking their chops.
The latest smoke and mirrors con job is the 50 percent payment on brand name prescription drugs for the so-called “doughnut hole.”
Never miss a local story.
In almost every case, the cost of a generic drug is far less than half the cost of a brand name prescription drug. Who would be stupid enough to fall for this except for Obama’s supporters?
But don’t take my word for it. As Glenn Beck would say, check it out, do your own homework.
Thankfully, now that the Democrats no longer have the House of Representatives the party of “no” can start withholding funding and this snake can start dying the slow death it deserves. When Obama is sent on his merry way in 2012 they can repeal it.
Happy new year.
