Viewpoint: Affordable Care Act will waste millions

(Continued)

Consider the military. Surely they’re efficient. Wrong. Does anyone else remember the $435 hammer that the Department of Defense (DOD) was buying back in 1983, during the Reagan administration? Again, use any search engine, and you can find it. But that was then, what about now? Consider how politicians demand the DOD buy planes, bombs, and other military equipment, simply because some or all of the parts are built in their district, bringing jobs to their district. These politicians waste millions, or even billions of dollars on equipment the DOD doesn’t want or need.

The sad part is, all this waste, fraud and corruption of our money is just a drop in the bucket compared to what the Affordable Care Act will waste. Someone counted President Obama saying at least 26 times, “If you like your plan, you can keep it. Period.” We know how that is working out, at considerable cost to the policy holders. The sad truth is, politicians lie. They will say anything to get what they want. With Obamacare consisting of one-sixth of the economy of the United States, I recommend to anyone reading this to save as much money as possible for the future. You’re going to need it.
