"The Congress shall have power to".provide for (the) general welfare of the United States."
It means "We the People." It includes everyone equitably. It means what never was, isn't now, or won't ever be under a system favoring privilege, not fairness.
Western-style democracy is the world's biggest scam. Obamacare proves it. So do numerous other examples in representative/republican societies run by scoundrels in charge.
Affordable care is a figure of speech. It's more deform than reform. It's not universal care, single-payer or fair. It's market-based for profit. It does nothing to control costs. It's regulation light.
It's a boon for huge profits. It's got loopholes big enough to reap huge amounts. It helps business at the expense of ordinary people. It leaves tens of millions uninsured. It leaves millions more underinsured.
Legitimate democracies would have enacted what's badly needed. Comprehensive coverage requires universal single-payer. Everyone in. No one excluded.
Private insurers have no legitimacy except for those who want them. They're administrative middlemen. They game the system. They add hundreds of billions annually to costs.
They provide no care. They ration it. Obamacare lets them do it through unaffordable premiums.
"It's time for single payer," says Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP). Dr. James Mitchiner called for what's long overdue.
