OPINION: The Left Just Knows Better What Is Good For You (or So They Think)

Image: Truth Revolt

When I read an article on a left-leaning website extolling the wonders of Obamacare and comment that my personal experience has been an awful one, I find the responses fascinating.

The resulting comments from progressives usually are that I am misinformed and confused, by my OWN experience.

This is a brilliant, sparkling, and clear as a perfect diamond example of the hubris of the left.

The left simply knows better what is good for you.

Find your $5,000 “per person insured” ObamaCare deductible outrageous? Response: “high deductible is still better than paying for everything: deductible, principal, and interests. (sic) Chemotherapy and heart bypass, for example, are in the hundreds of thousands.”

Hate the extraordinarily high total out-of-pocket costs and lack of brand name drug coverage? Response: the cheaper plan you may have had before probably had caps or exclusions or both, which would leave you high and dry when you most needed it. Cost growth has slowed dramatically since the ACA was implemented.” (Not true…btw.)

State that most, if not all, of ObamaCare plans require you to pay entirely out-of-pocket for tests such as MRI’s and CT scans until your deductible is paid? Response: “not true.”

Predict that you most likely will not be able to afford ObamaCare next year due to the expected sharp rises in premiums? Response: “then you’ll be breaking the law, and you should have to pay a penalty.”

I could go on and on.

Your personal experience with the result of any leftist legislation such as higher costs of living, higher energy prices, loss of personal freedoms, loss of rights once thought to be constitutional, etc. do not matter to progressives.

Scratch the surface of any leftist and you will expose the tyrant lurking underneath.

The individual, to the left, is a virus, a disease, a scourge. Only the collective matters – the “community”. When they wax on about “social justice” remember the word “justice” because they are going to make sure it’s handed out aggressively to those who don’t comply with their edicts.

Justice, when used in their nomenclature, means punishment. Leftists have a centuries-old love affair with the use of force.

Another reason they find personal choices and wishes so revolting is because they think themselves superior in mind. They are just smarter than you, you see? They have all the answers.

One of the architects of ObamaCare, Johnathan Gruber, stated not long ago: “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get for the thing to pass.”

You’re dumb, you’re ignorant, you’re uninformed, and you will comply…or else.
