Skip to comments.Obamacare Unworkable, GOP Blamed
Posted on 04/13/2013 8:25:11 AM PDT by John Semmens
The unforeseen difficulties of implementing the Affordable Health Care Act (aka Obamacare) have key proponents scrambling for answers.
Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), one of the leading writers of the Obamacare legislation, now calls the program complex beyond comprehension. We had hoped that somehow, someone would've come up with sensible procedures for how the thing is supposed to work, but no such luck. The system's as opaque as the day we passed it. Our high hopes are crashing down around us.
US Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius blames Republicans for the mess. Instead of rolling up their sleeves and helping us figure out how to implement this they're just standing aside and letting us flounder, she complained. In a way they could be considered traitors to the common good.
A few of the steps Republicans could be taking according to Sebelius include appropriating additional funding to cover the unexpectedly higher costs of the program. While it had been our hope that comprehensive health care coverage would lead to lower costs, this sadly, has not turned out to be the case.
Especially rankling to the Secretary has been the widespread refusal of states to establish the insurance exchanges called for in the law. The law gives states the option to set up their own exchanges, Sebelius pointed out. Unfortunately, the majority of states controlled by the GOP have declined to take up this option. It's like they're saying 'you made your bed, now lie in it.' I say, we've already done our part. We came up with the idea. Now it's their turn to do their share to make it happen.

“Now look what you’ve made me do!” lol
Lots of people with tragic illnesses.
Lots of people unable to pay their medical bills.
Lots of people confused about insurance.
Lots of companies having trouble providing benefits.
Clearly, Obamacare is a failure, and the big Single Payer Insurance plan will have to be rolled out so that government is 100% in charge of all aspects of this sector of the economy. The reward for their failure is more money and more power. The ground for this is clearly being prepared as we speak.
The sad thing is, this is actually true: when a liberal idea/policy/law doesn’t work, Dems blame Repubs for “diluting” their law, and making it “unworkable”. It’s really just an excuse to put more fat (Dems would call it “meat”) to their law and expand it. That’s all libs know, if it’s not working, it’s because they “didn’t try hard enough”.
You're right....that's how liberals roll --
Lol — right on target.
We should apologize. lol.
The Socialist Democrats are counting on the spineless GOP leaders to accept the blame ... that’s why they’re so confident in assessing it. (Besides that when passing obamacare their intentions — as always — were good.)
Sebelius really said, “letting us flounder”?
Not even she listens to what she says.
Even though this is satire, libtards, out of desperation, will blame anybody else they can, no matter how absurd, rather than face the truth that their programs are a disaster.
