Libtards Bemoan the Cost of Obamacare

Many of us who’ve been against Obamacare from the very beginning and have written about the consequences of this monstrosity are amused at the outright stupidity or willful ignorance by those on the left.  Here are some examples of incredulous libtards:

Sue Klinkhamer has a problem.
It’s called Obamacare.
And the irony of her situation is not lost on her. In a recent email addressed to her former boss, Illinois Congressman Bill Foster, and other Democratic colleagues, she wrote:
“I spent two years defending Obamacare. I had constituents scream at me, spit at me and call me names that I can’t put in print. The congressman was not re-elected in 2010 mainly because of the anti-Obamacare anger. When the congressman was not re-elected, I also (along with the rest of our staff) lost my job. I was upset that because of the health care issue, I didn’t have a job anymore but still defended Obamacare because it would make health care available to everyone at, what I assumed, would be an affordable price. I have now learned that I was wrong. Very wrong.”
 You couldn’t have been more wrong.  One woman wrote a letter to the president of Blue Cross and Blue Shield in California bemoaning the fact that she was all for Obamacare until finding out she had to pay for it.
 Anyone who had a modicum of curiosity could have refuted the nonsense the Democrats were spewing.  I started this blog out of frustration as means to refute Senator Kay Hagan’s assertions on Obamacare.  Here is one of her absurdities:
"Today, the Senate passed a health care reform bill that reduces costs, expands coverage, and provides stability for North Carolina families. It prevents insurance companies from taking away your coverage when you get sick or discriminating against people with pre-existing coverage conditions. The bill reduces the waste, fraud and abuse that currently exists in the delivery of care, and it will save ourcountry money by decreasing the mounting federal deficit. As we move forward, I will continue working to ensure that North Carolina's families, seniors, and small businesses have a seat at the table.

Here is what I wrote on January 10, 2010.  One of my very first blog posts:
 Spoken like a true statist. What Senator Hagan and her fellow socialist will not acknowledge or concede is that federal and state government regulations are responsible for the rising cost of health care insurance. A study by the Cato Institute goes into great detail on government’s role:

"The high cost of health services regulation is responsible for more than seven million Americans lacking health insurance, or one in six of the average daily uninsured. Moreover, 4,000 more Americans die every year from costs associated with health services regulation (22,000) than from lack of health insurance (18,000). The annual net cost of health services regulation dwarfs other costs imposed by government intervention in the health care sector. This cost exceeds annual consumer expenditures on gasoline and oil in the United States and is twice the size of the annual output of the motion picture and sound recording industries.

 It doesn’t take a genius to find this kind of information.  It’s right there for all to see.  Even a senator from North Carolina should’ve been able to figure out that Obamacare is anything but affordable.  Now the whole country is under assault because a bunch of statist refused to do their homework.  Thanks a lot libtards.

Oh yeah, the dreaded the Koch brothers. Why don't you address the study, which Obamacare proved to be accurate. That would require facts, and a little knowledge of history and economics. Something that is alien to a typical liberal
