The GOP wants to dismantle ACA & consequently increase costs. It's wrong. It will have an major impact on hardworking families & raise taxes
The bandwagon of fail really kicked into full swing a few weeks ago when Pelosi sent this out… and apparently she wasn’t joking:
You know what had a major impact on hardworking families and raised their taxes??
FREAKING OBAMACARE, THAT’S WHAT.
You just described what Obamacare has done for the last half decade. https://twitter.com/NancyPelosi/status/815988323260964864 …
By the way, do you know what the official definition of the word “idiot” is?
“A stupid person”.
It is crucial that we never forget the stories of those left out by @HouseGOP's bid to #MakeAmericaSickAgain. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/01/14/opinion/sunday/without-obamacare-i-will-get-sicker-faster-until-i-die.html …
Without Obamacare, I Will Get Sicker, Faster, Until I Die
If I don’t have health insurance so I can manage my Parkinson’s disease, it’s likely the government will end up paying more for my care.mobile.nytimes.com
For more on that, see:
And that’s to say nothing of the “young and healthy” tax that landed on the backs of the younger generations who couldn’t afford Obamacare (and likely didn’t really need it anyway).
In 2014 alone, 8.1 million tax filers who elected to forgo buying health insurance were slammed with $1.7 billion in Obamacare penalties, about 40% of which was robbed from people making less than $35,000 per year.
And yet, Pelosi just keeps going, sounding crazier by the day.
Or how about this complete rewriting of history:
When you were threatening your fellow Congresspeople that they had to sign the bill first if they wanted to find out what was in it?
Perhaps she really has just lost it.
Her fat bag of crazy also comes with a generous helping of logic fail.
Saying we can’t repeal and replace Obamacare because it’s better than nothing is like a girl saying that even though she gets beaten and raped on a weekly basis, she has to keep working as a prostitute because hey, it’s better than nothing.
Sometimes the alternative of nothing is better than the alternative of something that totally sucks in every regard.
Then again, Pelosi also truly believes this, so…
