Much ado about nothing..

Many out there on the web are going bananas about the recent Daily Caller revelation about CBS and the WaPo receiving big cash from Obamacare slush funding, and insinuating that this definitely should have been pointed out as a conflict of interest by them considering their support for it and all the positive reporting that has consistently ignore the fact this boondoggle has been sold using a lot of smoke & mirrors to pretend it will cut the deficit or improve healthcare.

Let’s quickly rehash some of thehealthcare facts they have gotten wrong. Obamacare portends to reduce the defect over the next 10 years by some $120 billion through an accounting trick that forced the CBO to come up with those numbers. If you tax people for a decade but then only offer them services for the last 5 years of that, and then pretend you can control that cost as well, you can make it look like you saved the $120 billion. But those of us that understand Obamacare will not suddenly stop offering health services for the first five years of the next decade but collect the same taxes realize the fact it will then add trillions of new debt obligations! Then you have the whole problem of throwing in some 30 million new people that will have to be paid for, and the fact that gutting Medicare – under the guise of cleaning up waste amongst all the ludicrous lies that are part & parcel of this fairy tale - and transferring that cash to Obamacare isn’t going to do much other than make it harder to follow which bureaucracy is screwing us over. In short, this thing is likely to be the final dagger the collectivist seem to want to shove into the heart of this county’s economy, likely to bring it down, and nothing more.

But I have been over this all already, am tired of repeating it, and enough Americans understand that this plan is plain bullshit, and it remains unpopular. Now we finally even have congress starting to defunding most of it, thank the lord. So let’s get back to this revelation that SeeBs and WaPo are raking in a considerable chunk of change, taxpayer dollars allocated to Obamacare, not mentioning they are doing so until caught, while reporting positively on Obamacare, and the furor it seems to be causing. Come on! These shills for the donkey machine would have done the same even if they had not been lucky enough to score some tax payer money anyway. It’s not like the WaPo or SeeBS would suddenly have come out against Obamacare, considering how beholden they are to the collectivists and their agenda, you know. At worst, what we have here is some icing on the cake from either SeeBS’s and WaPo’s perspective, and that’s about all. So what if they are getting paid to do the hack reporting job they would normally do for free?
