Ignorance is a lack of knowledge while stupid is dull, foolish, or senseless. Solid, factual information can cure ignorance, but you cannot fix stupid.
In regards to healthcare, Congress is stupid. They are not listening to the majority of their constituents or exhibiting any semblance, any trace, of common economic, fiscal, or political sense.
Congress is diddling around trying to figure out how to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare, when they should be eliminating it.
They simply do not understand why we do not need to replace it with another expensive, ineffective government behemoth.
Eliminate the ACA and replace it with nothing.
Why shouldn’t we replace Obamacare?
The answer is simple. Can you honestly think of any government program that actually works as intended? Unless you are a socialist, the answer is no.
That is the simple answer. However, there are compelling arguments that support dismantling Obamacare. The arguments against the ACA rest on two principles: the role of government and cost/benefit. These two videos from Prager University clearly explain why the government needs to get out of healthcare, as well as myriad other things government expects us to pay for.
It is time Congress listens to the wisdom of the vast majority of Americans who are tired of all the machinations and horse manure in the process showcased so clearly in programs like Obamacare.
It is simple.
Stop being stupid. Get government out of our lives and restore the free market of products, services, and ideas. Eliminating Obamacare is the first step towards that goal.
