My gosh, did Clinton's, Harris' and Obama's people come in and tell Biden who he had to bring into his cabinet? It's nuts. I thought he was going to be pushing unity yet he hires Xavier Becerra (California's Attorney General), to run HHS; and this pick came out of nowhere. If he has any solid experience at all, it is with pushing Obama Care through false information and this is backed up through one of the architects of the Plan, M.I.T.'s Jonathon Gruber. You remember, the man who the Obama Administration praised before acting like he had nothing to do with Obama Care because of what he was sharing about the Administration misleading the American people; not because of something devious, but in his words, because the Obama Administration thought Americans weren't smart enough to know what was good for them so they needed to make it happen no matter what it took. I guess Democrats don't care when one of their own lies to them. It certainly isn't newsworthy unless they can catch a Republican in a lie or scandal.
Becerra knew there were no guarantees that someone could keep their doctors because they weren't sure how long private insurance companies would hang in there with lower premiums or how long the federal government could afford subsidizing the insurance companies' profits. They knew by law that the U.S. couldn't force someone to buy health insurance. They could tax the dickens out of them and use the money where they want, but they sure were hiding this from the rest of us. And as we saw across many parts of our country, insurance companies bailed and no one can even access Obama Care even if they wanted to. This isn't a failure by Republicans, it is a case of Republicans knowing the program faced implosion. People were dropping off Obama Care in the millions while Obama was President; it had nothing to do with Republicans. Just another lie by the Democratic Party. Now with Becerra on the inside, the goal will be Medicare for All, legal citizens or not. Kamala now has her man on the inside.
What's worse is Becerra is a workhorse for Planned Parenthood. He even used his office as leverage in an attempt to get some large California churches to openly advertise their support of the organization with the threat being, do we need to go over your books to see if you qualify for non-profit? It didn't work but he didn't get in trouble for trying it; of course we're talking California so what should we expect but horrific double-standards which goes against the U.S. Constitution?
He has the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals out of San Francisco, covering his back. This means that even if someone is being hurt by actions of the State government, he or she would need a lot of money to push the case through because not only will it have to make its way to California's Supreme Court because the lower courts are liberal, then the 9th Circuit will uphold the previous liberal rulings and the plaintiffs would need even more money to push it up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Think of how many viable cases are dropped because conservatives don't have the money to seek legal remedy. California is a dictatorship to those with conservative mindsets. There is no two-party system to ensure the best and more balanced, ideas are implemented. The sad thing is, so many of their own constituents don't understand this.
Every day I realize more and more that Biden morphed into a puppet for the Democratic Party. They (including the media), originally tried to push the old, white man, who was part of the establishment, away, but he kept coming because the activists in the Party didn't realize that everyone hadn't gone as far down the Left path as they had. They regrouped and knew they had to get their claws in him. Then the next thing we know, we're hearing radical ideas out of Biden that neither he nor Obama ever supported in the past. I'm talking complete 180's like The Green New Deal, Reparations, Medicare for illegal immigrants, etc. Biden isn't telling us what he truly thinks about policies anymore; the thinking is now being done for him. And quite frankly, many Democrats would be just fine with Biden not being able to finish his term so that Kamala Harris can come in with the agenda that the far left wanted from the beginning which might as well be the platform for a Socialists Party. You've got to hand it to them, they're a committed bunch of whackos. :)
