Obamacare: Caring for Private Profits at its Best


It is not easy to criticize Obama Care. And the reason for that is not that it might be considered not to be p.c. (political correct) to criticize the main “reform” of a Democratic president, nor because the Tea party supporters criticized it already enough and we (leftists, progressives, socialists) don’t want to sing along with reactionary brainless people like the Tea-bangers.

No, the main reason why it’s hard to criticize Obama Care is because you hardly know where to start.

Or as even Obama put it, trying to apologize, “I think we…have been trying to take on a healthcare system that has been broken for a very long time. … And that we’ve been trying to change it in the least disruptive way possible.”1

Yes, exactly. No disruption to any private profits or the way the US healthcare system functions in general.
