Guess What This Democrat Just Admitted About Obamacare (It Isn’t Pretty)

In a recent radio interview, Massachusetts Rep. Stephen Lynch conceded what millions of ObamaCare opponents already realized. While there is already plenty for critics to complain about, he noted that future mandates will only make the healthcare law less sustainable and more unpopular.

There is a simple reason the administration has systematically staggered the implementation of certain details within the law, he explained.

“There are parts of ObamaCare, or the Affordable Care Act, that have been postponed because they are unpalatable,” he said. “As these provisions come into effect, the administration thus far is saying ‘we can’t handle this now so we’re going to delay it.’”

At some point in the future, however, the other shoe will drop.

“It’s going to hit the fan,” he concluded, noting aspects of the law including mandatory registrations and penalties will give Americans an even clearer look at what a disaster ObamaCare truly is.

“Any individual with an individual healthcare plan that exceeds $10,200 is in a ‘Cadillac plan’,” he said, explaining employers will have to pay “a 40 percent tax on the amount over the maximum established under the Affordable Care Act.”

This represents the first time in American history that healthcare plans have been subject to a tax, Lynch said. Frustratingly, he concluded we are likely stuck with the law at this point.

“I think it would be impossible for a repeal right now,” he said, “because you’ve taken on 31 million new people.”

While he feels that providing insurance to more Americans is “a good thing,” he said the “problem has always been paying for it.”

To do so, Lynch reasoned, those with existing healthcare plans will be on the hook financially, even as they see their policies morphed into coverage that abides by ObamaCare’s mandates.

The administration “made a promise to the 270 million who already had healthcare that your healthcare will either be the same or improved by this,” he said, admitting that will be a “tough promise to live up to under this system.”

Reports indicate Lynch was the only member of his state’s congressional delegation to vote against ObamaCare in 2010. Four years later, it is clear he recognized a threat most of his fellow Democrats were unable – or unwilling – to see.

  1. Yep. Can't say you weren't warned when this monstrosity was being forced through…and technically wasn't passed. But, the people that had the chance to read the bill and analyze it before it was "deemed passed", knew what it was designed to do. It was designed to punish America. It was designed to hurt and hurt a lot. It was also designed to fail, but fail more in the way of a self-destruct mechanism. As in, inflicting collateral damage in the process. For example, if you got the quill of a porcupine stuck in your leg, its barbs will work their way further and further into your flesh the longer it's left in. Pulling it out late will cause severe damage. Now, we've tried twice to pull this particular quill out, but the administration has been working it so that it can't be pulled out. Lest my memory cheats me, a basic repeal effort failed because Harry Reid blocked it by his lonesome. The second time, Congress tried to pass a budget that would single out Obamacare. They would pay for everything else EXCEPT for the "law". Congress had every right to do this, by the way. They're granted the power of the purse, after all. Not only did it not fly well with the administration, but Reid and the other Democrats were livid about it as well. Their response? Block the bill and hold the US Government hostage, i.e. shutting it down. It wasn't enough that they force Obamacare into being deemed law, they wanted to force the Congress to pay for it too. So, trying to pull out this quill is being made harder by those that insist on leaving it in. These people just want the quill to work its way through to the other side of the leg and have some of the barbs break off and work their way into the heart. They want this bill to do what it was designed to do: hurt US!

      It was designed to become a one payer system and that would be another welfare type government program.

        Exactly. Prior to announcing his candidacy for POTUS in 2007, Obutthole had always supported a single-payer (Federal government) healthcare system — socialized medicine — but he knew that Americans would never knowingly support socialized medicine. So he lied about the true purpose of the PPACA, "Obamacare", in order to get it enacted.
