Mitt Romney Booed By The NAACP For Criticizing President Obama's Obamacare

Barack Obama

Republican Mitt Romney, who is running against President Obama in this year's presidential election, was booed by the decades old NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). The booing came when Romney criticized President Obama's healthcare program dubbed Obamacare.

Some do feel inclined to defend Obama based on race, but people have to face facts regarding the massive costs associated with Obamacare and the gaps in the system. So many people have opted out of aspects of Obamacare that it ceases to be congruent anymore, but that's what happens when a healthcare plan tries to interfere with people's religious beliefs (i.e. abortion).

As stated on the website previously, Obamacare needs a lot of work or it is going to bankrupt America more than the wars in the Middle East. Legislative action needs to be taken regarding pharmaceutical companies and medical equipment manufacturers that greatly mark up the price of their products to exorbitant levels damaging the national deficit.

For example, I know someone with asthma and each time she has to buy an inhaler it comes to over $50, as she can't afford health insurance and certainly will not be able to afford the premiums of Obamacare. Correct me if I'm wrong, but air is free. Compressing it into a tin you shipped in from China for a few cents per unit and adding a bit of medicine to it that is dirt cheap in large quantities, doesn't justify charging over $50 for an inhaler. 

This brings me back to my ongoing point about the corporate sector gouging the American people. If it's not the banks, it's the pharmaceutical industry. If it's not the pharmaceutical industry it's Hollywood (really, $12.00 for a lousy movie ticket). Why are their no anti gouging laws to address these matters.

But back to Obamacare. Adding $1 trillion dollars to the already battered national deficit and demanding people pay premiums on Obamacare many will not be able to afford, especially in this terrible financial climate when many aren't even able to find jobs, is not going to solve the problem. 

However, some, not all in Washington, on both sides of the aisle, would rather take this costly, debt ridden route, than offend and upset their wealthy campaign donors in the corporate sector. Make no mistake, there is a reason corporations lavish large donations on politicians - it's to keep their greed unchecked.
