Actress Suzanne Somers has blasted President Obama’s “Affordable Care” Act.
Now, you may not appreciate Chrissy from “Three’s Company” speaking on political matters, but she does get a few things right.
We’ve discussed before how annoying it is to hear any celebrity talking politics. It makes us not want to watch their projects because we’re so turned off by their statements.
Suzanne Somers had to put in her two cents worth, penning an article for the Washington Post. Let’s just say she doesn’t mince words.
Somers writes, “First of all, let’s call affordable health care what it really is: It’s socialized medicine”. That we agree with!
The actress shared a personal story about her ill sister-in-law who battled an illness for two months while waiting to see a general practitioner.
She writes, “All you are hearing on the news is how everyone’s premiums are doubling and tripling…the whole thing is a big mess. Plus, even after Obamacare is fully implemented, there still will be tens of millions of people not covered. So what’s the point?”
Suzanne Somers, 67, adds, “Medical care will be degraded, the costs will skyrocket, and most frightening of all, your most intimate and personal information is now up for grabs.”
She goes on to say she thinks the Affordable Care Act is a greater Ponzi scheme than that pulled off by Bernie Madoff.
President Obama assured everyone in 2009 that anyone currently holding insurance would be able to keep their coverage and doctors, and that health care premiums would decrease not increase. But we all know that is not the case.
Obamacare is failing miserably. The HealthCare.gov website is a major failure and a joke. And millions of people are receiving cancellation notices from their insurance companies. Those low premiums? Nonsense.
Who thinks it’s time for President Obama to put his tail between his legs and admit this law is a disaster?
