I Only Protested the Affordable Care Act Because the President Was Black.Please Don't Take it Away

By DAVID BRADLEY ISENBERG


Back in 2009, when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was being debated in Congress, I was fuming with anger. How could I, a fiscal conservative, support a program that would drive down my insurance costs and cover my childís preexisting condition? It clearly was a flawed bill that would ruin small businesses.

I nearly boiled over for eight years, and rightly so. But now that President Obama has finally left office, and the Republicans want to take away my health insurance options and increase my premiums, I just want to be up front about something.


It was never about the taxes. It was always about the presidentís Blackness. It was super related to his race. Arguably, completely and wholly tied to race, alright? And now that the president is normal again, Iíd be very grateful to be able to enjoy this health insurance and all these patient protections that have saved my small business and my childís life. So please, donít repeal the Affordable Care Act.

I was one of the early activists within what became known as the Tea Party, sending my senator hundreds of envelopes filled with nothing but tea bags. Contrary to popular belief, the black tea bags were not to symbolize the famous Boston Tea Party protesting tea taxes from the British. Rather, my black tea bags symbolized the Blackness of our president.

more satire close to the truth:
