I have been asking this question for about 6 months now - What will the GOP do when the Dems decide to cut it loose? It is a possibility it will happen before the Fall of 2014.
Obamacare could never stand up...it was designed to crush the economy, not help the People.
I understand everyone’s unhappiness with Obamacare, but frankly what we had before was also a mess.
I do not, see anyone moving to actually FIX things.
We just seem to waffle between one mess (pre-Obamacare) and another mess (Obamacare)
Either fix Obamacare, or leave it.
We cannot return to what we had.
It already is collapsing because it was unworkable right from the start
Only after democrats bankrupt the country trying to prop it up.
The Rats and Rhinos need the crack delivered to addict the peeps and increase the politicians power. Wake up!
It was designed to fail so they could give you the solution, Single Payer.
There's another, equally true legacy statement that applies to Obamacare: Gall's Law. This law was based on a body of work by John Gall who has extensively studied the nature of systems. Gall concluded that "A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. The inverse proposition also appears to be true: A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be made to work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system."
We are seeing Gall's Law play out with Obamacare, which is the mother-of-all complex systems. And the worst is yet to come. The underlying supporting systems have not even been put in place yet but when they eventually are Obamacare will inevitably be a fiasco of historic proportions. A great political disaster, the signs of which are already evident even to many Democrats.
No it will not collapse, it may be tweaked a bit here and there, but the Rino’s want it as much as obama does, just like amnesty.
Hope I’m wrong about that, but the facts in evidence leads me to the conclusion.
It was designed to collapse and create a panicky outcry for Single Payer in its wake.
Obamacare is suppose to collapse. It is designed to bring about that outcome.
The answer will be yet more and even bigger government to rescue the situation in the single payer system, which should be recognized as the end goal of Obamacare.
Free market solutions are the only REAL solutions while remaining a free nation.
You have to identify a problem before you solve a problem. The problem is that medical treatment is too expensive for very many people to afford. The solution to that would be cheaper solutions. Nobody’s looking for cheaper, simpler solutions to things because there’s not enough profit in that.
No, it will morph into single payer.
Obamacare has already collapsed, but they will shove it down our throats, anyway.
The word WHEN was left off after the colon...
“Well, Ive already explained why Im optimistic about the possibility of turning Obamacare lemons into free-market lemonade.
Simply stated, the law took a healthcare system that already was a mess because of government intervention and subsidies and it doubled down on that misguided approach!”
Not me, sorry. I am much more certain that we will have band-aid placed upon band-aid placed upon suture placed upon workaround placed upon subsidy placed upon whatever else...BECAUSE LAWS ARE NEVER REPEALED! (OK, functioning laws are repealed, like Glass-Steagal, but we’re talking 1%)
Instead, I believe the odds are much greater that will get a hybrid-patchwork-bastardization-cross-subsidized mishmosh that will look like one of those old houses with 6 layers of roofing on it, so many that the rafters are sagging under the weight.
The government HAS ACHIEVED legal control over this 1/6th of the US economy and nothing short of an asteroid strike will cause them to relinquish their grip.
The fix will be THREE THOUSAND pages. Count on it.
