Why Obamacare Is Such A Failure – Premiums Skyrocket As Government Monopolizes Healthcare

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) as the forecast by those who’ve been standing up against Obamacare for years is being vindicated. Despite Obama and Hillary Clinton claiming for years that Obamacare will cause premiums/prices to go down, the very opposite is currently happening as the premiums skyrocket and cause massive headaches throughout the United States.
While Hillary Clinton claims she’d update The Affordable Care Act to fit into Canada’s healthcare blueprint, Josh and John go into how our good intentions are causing the problems we’re striving to solve. It’s the regular Hegelian Dialectic of “problem, reaction, solution and repeat”.
The more government handles healthcare, the less competition to create the next great medicines and keep prices down. This market manipulation causes inflation on medicines which perpetuates spending while creating monopolies between a small few pharmaceutical companies as well as insurance companies. With free markets and without these monopolies, we would see huge deflation in pricing for not just medicine but for medical necessities including different kinds of treatments and surgical procedures. With real competition, companies would do whatever they could to innovate the best and price the lowest. This is an often misunderstood side of the argument as so many on the left believe that in fact the competition itself will create monopolies despite the stupidity a company would have to possess to price higher and innovate less.
Then, aside from that, without being extorted, people can create community pools for healthcare needs among the poor that has worked in the past and would work in the future, especially with dramatically lower prices.

Josh and John break all of this down and more! Stay tuned for more from WAM!

    Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this
    the judgment.” The simple plan of salvation is this… YOU ARE A
    SINNER!!! Christ has made your payment and mine in full. You can either
    pay for your own sins in Hell for all eternity, or you can receive Christ’s
    payment for your sins instead. I have already received Christ’s payment,
    have you? Salvation happens when you acknowledge your guilt of sin in
    God’s eyes, and you receive the gospel as full payment for your sins.
    Christ DIED upon the cross for our sins, He was BURIED, and He RAISED up,
    having shed His precious blood to wash away our sins. Christ sprinkled His
    liquid blood upon the heavenly Mercy Seat in the presence of His Father
    (Hebrews 9:12, 22-24; 12:24). Ephesians 2:13, “But now in Christ Jesus ye
    who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.” You
    don’t have to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire. If you receive the
    Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as payment for your sins, then you are
    saved securely and eternally.
