ObamaCare is instrument of “slavery for greed and profit": A commentary
Anchor for Allvoices
The Affordable Care Act upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court about a week ago is now losing luster and viability. It becomes an object of defiance at the state level. Governors are bound to mothball it by not implementing for their constituents in their respective jurisdictions. This is to suggest that this much articulated and highly criticized measure is toothless as it does not compel governors to enforce it.
Those who clearly decipher the intention of ObamaCare assert that ‘it is a tax increase that puts the burden on young people and people who don’t have the capacity to pay.’
Deletion of Medicaid benefits, disables government to provide assistance to middle and low-income families who are obliged to pay big percentage of their income for insurance or pay huge fine.
This spirit which is the life of the law makes it more of a burden rather than a benefit and a privilege. It strangles and slowly kills the tax subjects by requiring them to pay insurance policies far beyond of what they can afford.
Undoubtedly, the “commerce clause” of the legislation gives new impetus and boosts the insurance businesses. The heartless boom of the insurance firms at the expense of tax payers who cannot afford is indeed, without moral basis. In this sense, ObamaCare is an instrument of “slavery for greed and profit.”
Governors have to safeguard their people from undue taxation and protect their welfares among other things provide them morale and prerogatives not to implement ObamaCare as they deem it necessary for their constituents. This is to strengthen their local autonomy which is encouraged by the law as upheld by the U.S. high court.
Louisiana Governorinitially took the courage of boldly proclaiming that he will not implement the Affordable Care Act in his state. More state governors jumped in to defy the law. As poll data show, 33 and probably more governors are bound to reject the it outrightly.
