From the Washington Examiner:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Monday said that members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community will be a special focus of Obamacare because “for too long…[they] were pushed to the side.”
What hypocrisy. Imagine what they would do if one of the rest of us decided to give “a special focus” to heterosexuals, whites, or Christians.
And how about this new coverage?
“Insurers generally must cover such vital preventive services as HIV screening, vaccinations, depression screening, contraception, intimate-partner violence screening, and annual well-woman visits, at no out-of-pocket charge.”
Obamacare as health insurance is not sustainable. It was designed to take our money, health, and freedom.
Sebelius’ pandering to the LGBT community confirms my suspicion that healthcare will become a political tool. Is it difficult to imagine members of Congress bartering for healthcare funds, new hospitals, or the newest healthcare equipment for their states? All other funding has been used that way and our lives are meaningless to them – unless they want our votes.
