Trump must keep his promise to repeal Obamacare

Kurt SchlictehrThere are a thousand plausible-sounding excuses for not repealing Obamacare. There is one reason why you must – because you said you would, over and over again. The media is going to tell you that you can’t – it’ll wheel out a nonstop conga line of whiny deadbeats afflicted with the sadz because people who actually work for a living are going to stop having to subsidize their effort-free lifestyle. When it does, ask the first question the rest of us would ask: “Well, does Freddie Freeloader have a cell phone? How about a big screen? Is there an Xbox in his apartment? Because if so, then what Freddie really wants is not for us to pay for his health insurance. He could pay for that if he wanted. He wants us to pay for his toys, and the normals are sick of sweating so that some shiftless couch-tater doesn’t have to.”

It's perhaps not quite that simple. The big screen TV and the XBox are one-time expenses and health insurance is a recurring, and increasingly expensive, one. But I can't blame young, healthy, and poor people for wanting someone else to pay for their health insurance, especially when the deductibles are so high the insurance never pays out. Those people are being abused by Obamacare to fund the people who aren't healthy.

It's going to take more to fix the problems in the health care system than a halfhearted Republican wimp-out.
