Oh, good: Broke cities looking to unload expensive retirees on ObamaCare, i.e. taxpayers

The Obama administration’s short-term panicked desperation to avoid ObamaCare-related consequences in the 2014 midterms is only matched by their relatively longer-term panicked desperation to convince young and healthy Americans to get with the program en masse. They’re going to need a heck of a lot of people with relatively inexpensive health-insurance needs to participate in and subsequently subsidize the inherently riskier and more expensive insurance pools the program creates by deliberate design — a redistributive fact of which the law’s supporters and administrators are all too aware.

That was precisely Willard Mitt Romney’s reason.

When he sold companies, everyone lost healthcare
and blamed him.

So he screwed the taxpayers, and the entire USA.

Exactly. The creators of socialized ObamaCare knew all along that it would not work. One cannot indefinitely force private insurance companies to take people with preexisting conditions. The insurance companies—crippled with red tape— will run out of money and shut their doors.

Then single payer will come in as the white knight. Virtually all doctors and nurses will be forced to work for one giant nationwide hospital. One dirty, bureaucratic, cruel, overcrowded, germ-filled hospital. Just like in England.

Just wait.

Is the “Romney is no different than Obama” still going here on FR? Geez, FR was a big contributor to Obama gaining a second term. Are you still on autopilot? Or did I misunderstand your incoherence?

Been a nurse since 1979. Glad I don’t have a whole career still ahead of me in this wretched system.

Obamacare was intended to DESTROY the system of private insurance and health care providers.

Obama care is going to add one more in series of economic hurdles that will make it very hard for young people to build a life around the American Dream because they will have to support the welfare payments and health care for millions of layabouts , illegal aliens and phony system riders/scammers.

Young people will have to spend the money they normally would have spent on starter houses, cars, furniture and other traditional fixtures of starting a life on health care for other people who refuse to take care of themselves.

Of course this was their plan all along... it’s merely incrementalism this monstrosity they passed without reading or understanding. The designers however, knew exactly what they were doing, creating a system that has to fail so they can blame the greedy insurance companies for rising premiums and reduced services. Dennis Kucinish on Fox News today at least is one Democrat that will admit this plan !!
I suspect they will tie the doctors license to being in on the scam so as to avoid dual medical care systems one for the cash payers and one for the masses who need to rely on the government largess !
We are screwed, medical-care speaking !!

I thought the same when I read this. A devious way for democrat controlled municipalities to escape the consequences of having rewarded their public service union allies over the years at the expense of the taxpayer.

You missed the point, I’m no Rove-bot and never was, but he is a million times better than your candidate Barry. Thanks for your help in getting Obama a second term.

Right we should nominated the quitter from Alaska or sweater boy. At least Rove knows how to win elections. Unlike some people here I like to win. Not sit at home screaming and shouting for not being a pure Conservative.

That's the plan. And the response will be to fight for refundable vouchers to allow people to opt out. This will have to be sold as an opportunity for people who watch their weight and avoid X,Y, and Z to earn a discount for their good behavior. This has the advantage of being good policy as well as self-evidently fair.

It's similar to what needs to happen on public schools. And I think, in the long run, we WILL win on schools.

Dittoes to that. Being a nurse in the appalling National Health System in England (our future) is almost as depressing as being a patient.

Let’s start REALLY ticking off the narcissist. Don’t call it “Obamacare” anymore.
