The Dirty Secret Behind ObamaCare No One’s Talking About

JoshuaPundit – Cross-Posted at True Health is True Wealth: At this point, much is being made about the failure of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare.

President Obama himself tacitly admitted as much by calling in what amounts to an emergency rescue squad from Silicon Valley to try and make sense of the dysfunctional website… paid for by the American taxpayers at a staggering cost of over $500 million. (And some say it cost as much $634 Million and was not even an American company.  That’s right… that outrageous amount of American taxpayer money went to a Canadian company.) The website itself was granted to a company with connections to Obama backer George Soros, CGI Federal in a no bid contract, and the job they did was so amateurish and sloppy that they even opened the government to a lawsuit for violating the licensing agreement of a copyrighted web script used by the site.

The estimated cost to repair the system and get it up and running again may run as high as $2 billion, and it might take months to repair.

Meanwhile, Americans coast to coast are experiencing sticker shock over the huge increases to their existing healthcare policies, and the demographic ObamaCare targeted to pay the freight – largely uninsured healthy young adults – is steering clear as they discover what enrolling in ObamaCare actually entails.

For instance, here’s a typical deal that’s being offered:

“One option available only to people under 30 is a so-called catastrophic policy that kicks in after a $6,350 annual deductible. In Monroe County, you can buy that policy on the New York State of Health exchange for as low as $131 a month for single coverage.”
Let’s look at the math. They’re offering coverage for $1,572.00 per year that only kicks in after you pay $6,350, not a sum the majority of under 30s still paying off student loans have laying around even if they happen to have full time jobs. Any wonder that healthy young adults aren’t signing up, and opting to pay the tax instead? And without their participation, ObamaCare is doomed to failure.
There are significant voices on the right end of the spectrum who are saying that the best policy is simply to allow this debacle to happen. The strategy they’re touting assumes that when this happens, both President Obama and the Democrats will be blamed for the colossal and expensive failure and it will all end up collapsing and eventually being repealed anyway.

They’re missing two important factors.

First, no federal entitlement has ever been repealed.They just morph into something different in the name of ‘reform’.

And that brings us to the second factor, the dirty secret behind ObamaCare – it was always designed to fail.

President Obama and his minions always had the goal of Sovietizing the American health care system by making it single payer and having it controlled solely by the Federal government. ObamaCare was never anything more than a poorly constructed Potemkin village designed to fail so miserably that the American people would demand single payer just to get rid on the unwieldy mess ObamaCare would create.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid admitted as much  when he was asked whether ObamaCare was merely a step towards single payer answering, “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”

Senator Reid’s told PBS in his interview that he and other ‘progressives’ wanted single payer all along, but even with the Democrats having a veto proof majority in 2009, they didn’t have the 60 votes needed to push it through.

“We had a real good run at the public option … don’t think we didn’t have a tremendous number of people who wanted a single-payer system,” Reid said.

But in the end, some Democrats weren’t willing to go along – Reid named former Senator Joe Lieberman as a prominent obstacle – so they opted for the next best thing…a cumbersome train wreck in the making which, as an added benefit, provided plenty of pork and contracts for well connected donors as well as ‘new revenues’ the Democrat euphemism for increased taxes.

Not only that, but it provided funding and employment for President Obama’s friends at ACORN as ObamaCare ‘navigators’, regardless of felony convictions and legal resident status.

That’s where things stand now. The next target, especially if President Obama’s union allies get the waiver they’re screaming for will be an all out assault on employer-sponsored health care, with vast increases on co-pays and employee contributions…except, of course if you’re lucky enough to work for someone who has a waiver or is subsidized, like members of congress and their staffers.

Repeal of ObamaCare is the only way to avoid this. ‘Reform’ just adds another facade to an already corrupt and crumbling structure. And repeal is going to involve electing enough members of Congress in 2014 with the spine to insist on repeal and stick to it, as well as holding their feet to the fire to make sure they don’t weasel out in classic DC fashion.

And yes, those really are the only choices available.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

    And so the dilemma. The Republican party has made so many compromises that conservatives are leaving it in droves. The resultant Tea Party’s are not of one voice and have become the “spoilers”.

    Voter fraud is rampant. Holder facilitates the madness. Organizations like Judicial Watch are wonderful, but they can’t do everything. The people who love this country and all it has stood for, (specifically those who cling to their Bibles and guns), need to pray, come together, i.e. “voting block”, elect and/or support like-minded people, ASAP…or all the good intentions will amount to nothing more than rearranging the chairs on the Titanic. Again.

  2. So sad. I can’t remember the last time I read such a once-promising blog, originally bursting with personal insights, vulnerability and meaning (I read your archives), now so fully devolved into vitriol, minutia and pettiness. I thought I had seen everything (sigh)…

    Was this done for mere readership? Has life dealt you such an unjust hand? I’m struggling to understand the need anyone would have for such a retreat from compassion into negativity. Seriously.

      My blog has evolved and changed with the times. This blog originally started as a personal blog with MSN that was melded with a political blog on WordPress.

      It is each of our jobs to stand and speak up so that the next generation retains those rights. I have never seen this country in such dire straits.

      I occasionally still write about some fun or personal things, but the times call for us all to stand… awaken those who are still asleep and to speak out for what matters.

    In addition to finding those fine folks with a spine in 2014, the Conservative movement needs to get off its keester and market themselves to the young and would be voters. I’m 50 something and their constant droning message bores the hell out of me! Get honest, get real and get on with it!!!
