Remember when ObamaCare was going to make health care less expensive?
How is that working out for you? Are you paying less for health insurance than you were in 2008 and getting more coverage? Or is it costing you more for less?
Sure, it’s been a deal for some. But for most?
Ehealth, which calls itself the country’s “largest private online health insurance exchange”, issued a report in 2017 claiming that average individual health insurance premiums increased 99% under ObamaCare, with family premiums increasing by 140%.
Are these self-serving corporate statistics? Perhaps. But they certainly jive with what everyone’s been hearing from friends, neighbors, and family. Health care didn’t get any cheaper for most Americans under the regime of President Barack Obama.
Of course, if you are a key corporate man with a fat paycheck and a benefits plan to die for, you don’t notice these things. Enter the Newark Star-Ledger’s Tom Moran.
The newspaper Tom Moran works for is one of many that belongs to a family of billionaires. Health care is not one of their personal worries. And because he has followed their lead and done their bidding, it’s not one of Tom Moran’s personal worries either. He’s covered.
In return, they get the use of his pen when it comes time to defend outrages like the Abbott Decision, which forces poor families in rural New Jersey to subsidize the property taxes of rich corporations and wealthy professionals living in places like Hoboken and Jersey City. A city like Newark has enough wealth from the rich corporations and law firms that reside there to fully pay for the education of the children of their community – but because of the Courts are able to shirk that responsibility and off-load it onto the shoulders of over-taxed suburban seniors.
The rich guys who own the Star Ledger appreciate Moran’s defense of their tax dodge, as they have long had property in places covered under the Abbott Decision. And Moran writes it in a way that them not paying their fair share is a virtue – something worthy of moral approbation. Though he hates the Roman Catholic Church, he’s still the alter boy with his eyes set on becoming a priest, holier than thou, the holiest guy in the room – the “saint” who, under cover of darkness, you find eating worms in the sacristy basement, preparing to howl at the moon.
Tom Moran has made it is his business to attack anyone who questions the legacy of Barack Hussein Obama. It’s religion with Tom Moran. Having rejected the religious idealism of his youth, he needed to replace it with something. That something became Barack Obama. For Tom Moran, he is a Christ figure. So naturally Tom Moran gets very emotional if someone questions why Obama got that Nobel Prize for doing nothing more than being Obama. And that’s why Tom Moran is so angry and twisted in his attacks on anyone who questions ObamaCare (or should we call it the “sacrament” of ObamaCare?).
Unfortunately for Tom Moran, his new-found idealism is misplaced. ObamaCare wasn’t fashioned in Nirvana but rather in the backrooms and lobbyists offices in the swamp that is Washington, DC. There was something downright carnal about the undemocratic, top-down, vote-for-it-before-reading-it way in which it was done. It had more to do with a whore-house than a church. But you can’t convince Tom Moran of that. He thinks it’s pure and, like some especially delusional Don Quixote, Tom Moran anxiously defends his whore’s honor.
The blinders necessary to accomplish this makes it impossible to see the realities of the evil of a man like Senator Bob Menendez – who helped his pal import at least two young women into the United States. Or men like Senator Cory Booker whose childishness and wish to please has led him into the arms of people who want to finish-off every Jew in the Middle East.
Calling for the end to the border wall and other fortifications that protect Israel against terrorists is like calling for a second Holocaust. It is not enough that Cory Booker’s international allies have driven Jews out of every country they control, now he wants to tear down Israel’s protective barrier and allow them to march in to commence a pogrom of terror, torture, rape, and murder.
And to make matters worse, thanks to the Philadelphia Inquirer, now we know that Booker’s fellow Democrat – Bob Menendez – is allowing his campaign to be run by a lobbyist for the foreign government of Qatar, one of the worse anti-Jewish culprits in the world and a government criticized by the United Nations and Amnesty International for its relaxed attitudes towards modern slavery – human trafficking and the exploitation of children.
So why is Tom Moran silent about this? What’s wrong, anti-Semite got your tongue?
Ditto for the three moe-moes Mikie Sherrill , Tom Malinowski, and Andy Kim. The anti-Semites must have their tongues too.
And Tom Moran will keep on writing his apologia.
