Quantitative easing .. Print money
It stimulated our enemies. It made destroying America more affordable to our enemies especially since he’s writing them checks to do so every other day.
After passage of the ACA private insurance rates jumped by as much as 30% in some cases. In terms of pure economics when you increase demand you will increase the prices. Of course in theory if the young healthy are paying into a system for the older sick to use the prices should soften somewhat, except that it is not at all certain they will pay in, the fines are not enough of an incentive (at least in the first handful of years), and when people pay for insurance they are more likely to try to use it. Why waste it? Thus demand may increase.
ACA is totally flawed in principle this way. If you want to lower health care prices you need to increase the supply of health care and to try as best as possible to treat ailments before they become costly. You can do this with diagnostic equipment, blood tests, scans, and by either getting more doctors OR eliminating the monopoly that Doctors (and health insurers to some degree) have. None of those solutions were part of the ACA.
Stimulus stimulated donations to Obama CREEP and democrats eg Solyndra execs gave to Dems/Obama. Stimulus was payback for votes - it went to union jobs in automotive, construction, education, and similar government directed funding programs.
It goes without saying that changing the vocabulary is an important tool of all totalitarian regimes. That's what George Orwell's "Newspeak" teaches us.It goes without saying among educated people, among people who haven't been imprinted by the NEA government schools. Nothing goes without saying to them. We have to explain everything to them, very slowly and very carefully. They are victims of a kind of malicious software brain surgery and although they can recover, it's not an easy job to do so.
Orwell is instructive, but so is Huxley. Think a group of toddlers rushing towards flowers and then suddenly receiving a horrible electric shock. They're not going to like flowers anymore.
