This morning I got a response to one of my blogs that really floored me:
"If you actually listened to her you would know that she is a constitutionalist. Obamacare is a massive Federal Government program that lost Billions of Dollars just tring to get it started. and the bleeding continues today. Carly has emphatically stated that the States are responsible for the health and welfare of the citizens. So send the States the money and let them handle it." - Bob DeMaura, NHInsider.
This is ultimately about candidate Carly Fiorina and her support for withdrawing from Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act which has already been implemented, successfully in New Hampshire.
If you notice Mr. DeMaura doesn't say where or how these billions have been lost, or how the "bleeding continues" this is just a hide behind the argument that billions have been lost so we should leave Obamacare. Compare the billions that have been lost by heathcare providers pre- Obamacare and unaffordable health premiums because of the billions that have been paid out in claims and executive bonuses by insurance companies. Billions of dollars.
"Carly has emphatically stated that the states are responsible. So send the states the money and let them handle it." Here are some FACTS:
"Of the $35,782,469 awarded to New Hampshire, $1,270,874 was awarded to New Hampshire heatlh centers to help enroll uninsured Americans in the Health Insurance Marketplace."
I could go on with statistics like this such as the: "elimination of pre-existing conditions."Which, private insurance carriers would never do--they would just deny coverage.
So I'm now re-reading my original post about the garbage candidate Fiorina sent about about leaving Obamacare. Neither her or Bob DeMaura have offered what should be put in it's place or, how New Hampshire residents would have access to healthcare without the ACA. Nothing.
Blame The Billions. I say blame the GOP. No leadership on this issue.
Lead, follow or get out of the way.
