By now, we should all know that Obamacare really is another wealth-transfer socialist scheme to manipulate some — especially young people who, being young and healthy, otherwise would not get medical insurance — to pay for the healthcare of the supposedly poor.
The latter would get free healthcare via “subsidies.” The money for those “subsidies” are taken from the more expensive healthcare insurances that the rest of us will now have to pay. (See “Obamacare disaster: Health insurances cancelling policies of hundreds of thousands” and “Elderly Americans in a panic over losing doctors because of Obamacare”.)
So it’s no surprise that Blacks and Latinos are the most diehard supporters of Obamacare.
Alison Vekshin reports for Bloomberg that, according to a Pew Research Center and USA Today survey conducted Sept. 4-8, as many as 91% of blacks and 61% of Hispanics approve of Obamacare, compared with only 29% of whites. Vekshin notes that “The battle over Obamacare is taking on political importance as Democrats hope a successful roll-out among Hispanics will further bind those voters to the Democratic Party and undermine Republican efforts to build more support before the 2016 presidential election.”
Side note: La Raza means “The Race,” which just goes to show, once again, that it’s not racism when the Left wallows in it. [Snark]
There’s even a Spanish-language Obamacare website, CuidadoSalud.gov, which corresponds to the English language HealthCare.gov website.
Alas, CuidadoSalud.gov not only is plagued with problems, the problems are worse than those of HealthCare.gov. The Spanish-language site was supposed to roll out this month, but although the website exists, the option to enroll electronically doesn’t.
And so CuidadoSalud.gov is now “indefinitely” delayed. LOL
Vdare.com’s Allan Wall warns that:
Hispanics, we have been assured again and again by the spokesmen of Conservatism Inc., are limited government natural conservativeswho would flock to the Republican Party if only we’d be more open about immigration. But the reality is that Hispanics are flocking to Obamacare. They may just tip the scales to bring about its irreversible establishment. […]
How did we get into this situation? I blame the GOP leadership. For years they’ve promoted mass immigration and pandered to Latinos. And what do they have to show for it? They’re still excoriated as “racists” and as the “white party”, despite the fact that they effectively do nothing to help American whites.
Clearly, the GOP needs new leadership—or American patriots need a new party. And fast.
