It’s been six months since the greatest debacle ever experienced by a civilized human being, has taken place…. The Republican Party of the United States of America,fully endorsed by Charlie Copeland here in good old Delaware, shut down the Federal government over the repeal of Obamacare .  Only those close to the story knew over what they were protesting….

Here is why the Republicans closed down your government, put 700,000 government workers on furlough, and cost the economy $24 billion dollars….  They did it because:

A.   They didn’t want 315 million Americans to get free preventative care… No co-pay for flu shots, HIV screenings, prostate exams, colonoscopies, mammograms……

B.   They didn’t want 315 million Americans to benefit from new requirements forcing insurance companies tospend at least 80% of our premium dollars on our health care , or refund us back our money…..

C.  They didn’t want 315 million Americans to benefit from new requirements that insurance companies publicly justify their actions if they want to raise premiums by 10% or more…

D.  They didn’t want 315 million Americans to benefit from knowing that our insurance can now never be capped or canceled at the whim of insurance companies.

E.   They didn’t want 105 million Americans to no longer have lifetime expense caps, either through chronic disease, or corporate restrictions.

F.   They didn’t want depending on which survey you read, 50 to 129 million Americans to benefit from the Obamacare provision that eliminates all bars for coverage based on pre-existing conditions..

G.   They didn’t want those 49.4 million American current Medicare enrollees to under Obamacare now feel secure knowing that existing Medicare benefits can neither be reduced nor taken away.

H.   They didn’t want 6.1 million Americans with Medicare Part D to no longer have to go through the “doughnut hole” coverage gap.

I.     They didn’t want 4.4 million low-income adults to now have access to health insurance thanks to states implementing the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare….

J.    .They didn’t want 3.2 million main street American small businesses to be eligible for tax credits for providing health insurance to their 19.3 million employees nationwide…

K.    They didn’t want 3.1 million of America’s  young adults to get coverage because of the provision in Obamacare that allows them to stay on their parents’ insurance plans until age 26….

They wanted none of the above… When like a terrible two year old,  they couldn’t get their way,  they furloughed 700,000 Americans for  a combined total of 6.6 million days,  shut down the National Parks and Monuments thereby damaging local communities, closed down the NIH and CDC, stymied essential permits and necessary reviews, stopped import and export licenses thereby freezing trade,  froze all Federal money earmarked for small businesses, homeowners, and families in rural communities,  disrupted loans because banks and lenders could not access the Federal database, delayed $4 billion in tax refunds to American consumers, prevented all food and water from being inspected, prevented all train and plane accidents from being inspected,  stopped critical defense and other non defense research, and cost 120,000 jobs from being created those two weeks in October….. It was just 6 months ago….

All of that…. just so you would not receive any of the  above benefits from Obamacare….Oh, my, tsk, tsk.

This is election year… Still not fired up?  So what’s your real reason?  Got rocks in your head?
