The Delusional Right on Obamacare

Funny thing happened today at the doctor's office. I went in for a monthly B-12 shot and the receptionist and I talked how happy we were about the election being over. We get along pretty well. I told her I was glad my President won and people will get to keep Obamacare. She said that they are going to repeal it. I said no they aren't. Going back and forth like that. I told her it will never be repealed because the senate will stop it. It might get through to the house but not the senate and if it did Obama would veto it. She kept trying to correct it. Of course she called it socialist medicine. I told her I was on that. Being on Medicare and Tricare which are government run healthcare. She said they weren't. I couldn't believe it. By that time they called me in to get my shot. We left it at that. We talk receipes and I guess that is what we'll talk about from now on. But it sure seemed sad around town to a couple of places I went. I had a big smile and I have left my Obama sticker still on my car.

1. There is so much people don't understand...

we had someone complaining because their husband's company changed their insurance and now their benefits had been reduced thanks to Obamacare. They crunched the numbers to figure out how much money they would need to continue care for their son and they were disgusted. She said she would be shopping around for new insurance. Our office manager pointed out that they could only do THAT because of Obamacare. Otherwise, the choices would be limited due to pre-existing conditions. She was speechless.

2. Self Deception is not good..

really? Medicare is not socialized healthcare; some one does not know what SOCIALISM really is.
