As sad as the launching of healthcare.gov has been, the website woes are certainly not the main problem with The Affordable Care Act (ACA). The $1.44 trillion cost of Obamacare, though incredibly difficult for most people to even fathom, is not even the worst part of law.
The program is rotten to the core and will fall under it’s own liberal enormity, despite flailing attempts from the administration by temporarily pausing the burdensome provisions. The fact that the bumbling Republicans (notice how I didn’t say Conservatives) allowed such changes to be made either indicates that they are blinded by the single-minded stupidity of wanting to repeal the ACA, or that they are just too stupid to realize that they’re fueling the Democratic cause in 2014.
I say let the people get the entire law that the passed and let the chips fall where they may. If you truly believed that the ACA is as economically apocalyptic as you say, then the absolute best thing you can do is to let the country feel the pain you fear.
The real problem with Obamacare is that it is based on the premise that the youth of this country are stupid enough to agree to pay higher premiums in order to subsidize the costs for older participants. In exchange the government will send you another form with your social security form laughably detailing yet another set of benefits that you will never live to collect.
Think about it this way. If you could buy insurance after you get into a car accident and it would cover the accident you just had, would you really continue paying $100-$200/month for nothing?
The fact that you cannot be denied for preexisting conditions makes this exact scenario a reality in the health care realm for the youth of the nation. Pay the cheaper penalty, and when you get sick simply jump on the exchange and Uncle Barrack has your back (that is to say that the rest of the American tax payers do).
The reason the government comes down on white collar criminals with such distaste is because it loathes ponzi schemes…but only because they believe they should have a monopoly on the market.
