Did Obamacare Really Save Lives?

Although I personally do not yet have a theory on the specific mechanism that may be responsible, I am confident in saying that the actual data do not support the breathless claims that rolling back ObamaCare will literally kill many thousands of Americans. Fans of the Austrian school should not be shocked, though, to discover that having the federal government get more heavily involved in the health sector has apparently made things worse.

I put this in the class of “District of Corruption speak” — like Brave New World’s Newspeak. You know where: “draconian cuts” don’t reduce the baseline spending, “The Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick”, and “Does that mean that someone’s 13-year old daughter could walk into a sex clinic, have a pregnancy test done, be taken away to the local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, have their abortion, be back, and go home on the school bus that night? Mom and dad are never the wiser.”
So overtime any of the politicians and bureaucrats — or their flunkies in the media — make ANY claim, I dismiss it out of hand. If they were to claim “the sun will come up tomorrow”, I’d wait and confirm it.
That goes for their predictions on everything.
When listening to “pitches”, ask who’s getting paid off and what’s the pitcher’s track record.
Why believe any to them?
