During the final days of the 2020 general election, Joe Biden routinely pledges to expand his predecessor’s disastrous healthcare reform law; this time calling it ‘Bidencare.’
The former Vice President fails to discuss the millions of Americans who found themselves without insurance or battling a growing bureaucracy that didn’t exist just months before the bill.
Here’s one family’s story…
“Joe Biden has been running an ad in which he says he can’t imagine what it would be like to have a child with cancer and no health coverage. I don’t have to imagine. Under the health ‘reform’ championed by Biden when he served as President Barack Obama’s vice president, I live that reality every day,” writes Christopher Briggs.
“Twice over the past three years, ObamaCare has had no plans to sell us that covers little girls ravaged by cancer or recovering from that ordeal — and it might leave us floundering again,” adds the father.
“Thanks to ObamaCare, we were already in financial straits. In 2014, the law had eliminated a great plan we had had for years. Before ObamaCare went into effect, the private marketplace offered us a wide menu of relatively inexpensive plans that covered specialist care, even out of state,” concludes Briggs. “Turns out there is a nightmare worse than one’s watching cancer brutalize one’s little girl. It’s having Obama’s law — which his vice president rightly claims as his own — collude with the disease against her.”

BLUE STATE BLUES: New Jersey to REINSTATE OBAMACARE Tax as Prices SPIRAL
Just months after the Trump administration and the GOP-controlled Congress officially ended Obama’s individual mandate requiring all Americans to face a penalty if uninsured, New Jersey is poised to reinstate the tax as healthcare costs spiral out of control.
“Governor Phil Murphy on Wednesday signed the new tax into law that will impose the tax on residents who choose not to purchase ‘qualifying’ health insurance as defined by Obama-era regulations,” writes Americans for Tax Reform.
According to the organization, nearly 80% of New Jersey households impacted by the Obamacare mandate earn under $50,000, directly harming low-income workers throughout the state who are ineligible for other programs, such as Medicaid.
“78% of New Jersey households hit by the Obamacare mandate tax make less than $50,000 per year. According to the IRS, the Obamacare mandate tax hit 188,570 New Jersey families and individuals in the most recent year of available data. 146,910 of these taxpayers made less than $50,000 per year – 78 percent of those impacted by the mandate,” says the report.

“We’re coming up with a plan. We have a lawsuit right now going where phase one of the lawsuit terminates Obamacare — essentially terminates Obamacare,” Trump told reporters.
“That’s the Texas lawsuit. We think it’ll be upheld, and we think it will do very well in the Supreme Court. And if the Supreme Court rules that Obamacare is out, we’ll have a plan that is far better than Obamacare,” he added.
