While the market was surprised last week when the Federal Reserves Open Market Committee decided to keep monetary stimulus going (also known as quantitative easing), its becoming clear that Obamacare is one of the driving forces behind the decision.

In no form or fashion can all of this end well.
Liberals will be unable to comprehend how it all went bad.
Because Obama cares...about redistribution.
Good read. Bump.
It’s not killing us - yet.
There was a couple the other day on Fox News who said they had signed up for a new insurance plan with Humana. Their family premium was $333 per month. They got a letter from Humana telling them because of 0bamacare their premium will raise to over $900 per month. They said they are healthy and their children are healthy
Actually, Obamacare is saving American Jobs by skimming too much money off the TAXes, and together with the Unions in Education over 70% of the country is engaged in medical or educational activity at one time or another either as an employee, patient or student. Therefore, the central planners have it right:)
They are healthy and their children are healthy. Well that’s fine with Obama because Obamacare is not FOR them, it’s for his voters; those people for whom the healthy are supposed to be working and paying.
McConnell and Cornyn are siding with Obama.
I cannot see any way for this to end well for the Obama and Obama care supporters.
Until people quit working to collect better benefits and the economy comes to a complete halt as people will not spend.
What is a typical family of four whose monthly bill goes up by $600 going to spend money on?
The point I am conveying is that the democrats and republicans realize that without any other sectors “working” in the economy, Education and Medicine are the two biggest employers aside from police/security work. It has nothing to do with providing SERVICEs, but rather ensuring an endless stream of jobs.
The two largest buildings in any city are the Banks and the Insurance Companies... Why shouldn't Insurance turn a dime at the tax payer's expense under the Democrats after all the Quantitate Easing (Five at last count spanning January 2009 until today).
Paying for Jobs is the primary reason for Obamacare/insurance companies, and not health care. Jobs.
There won’t be any consumer spending people will drop out of work force there won’t be anyone to pay the debt. It will not work
“Obamacare is killing us”
God save us from 0bamaKill: the bureaucrats in Washington don’t have it in them to defeat it.
The possibility of that family buying a new car just flew out the window. They'll manage, but the belt is going to have to be pulled a little tighter.
Whether they will manage or not is not the issue. The issue is that when they, and the vast majority like them, stop purchasing you have a major stop in money circulation.
Should a small business owner stay in business to pay the govt when he has no customers? Or quit and take from the ever decreasing pool of taxpayers?
People think education and health care workers will be here as a given. And, what, when taxpayers stop paying through being unemployed, where do those salaries come from?
The wealthy have been choked enough it will only become more difficult for the govt to get money from them
Basic economics. Ted Cruz isn’t just smarter about obamacare he is the only one, with a few others willing to, face it.
The guys that are against him are resigning
When the impact of this stupid bill comes into full view, which is what it takes for most, people will be scrambling to get behind anyone whose name is boldly against it. And the corny s won’t be able to pretend they are in any way for it ever
And the car dealer won’t just be losing that customer,my guess is he’s representing a whole lot more cars not being sold
Car dealer will be paying triple for inferior health care while suffering a severe lack of customers
Half if not all if his staff will get let go
They can print all the Monopoly money they want but this govt s gredibilty and rating worldwide will get so trashed
Exactamundo. It's called "Opportunity Cost." What else doesn't get purchased because of this? Obastardcare isn't just a drag on the medical sector, it's a drag on everybody, not the least of whom is the car dealer that just lost a sale, but doesn't even know it. As you say, for whatever reason his showroom is empty, he's got to cut people loose.
When that happens, WHEN that happens Ted Cruz will have a glowing halo and Cronyn et al won’t be able to get near
They are driven by mysterious motives but unwise just the same
Why the McConnells, McQueegs and Corny are doing what they’re doing isn’t a mystery to me at all: They want to maintain their sinecures. They think playing along with the Rats will preserve their phony baloney jobs.
They don’t give a rip about the people they’re supposed to represent. They never have. Cruz is threatening to pull the mask off, and they don’t like it.
Agree. I still think its unwise. They’re so steeped in comfort an phony power they cannot see its going to be gone more certainly if they don’t join Cruz. Taxpayers are NIT going to take a $7500 yearly avg (so far, sure to rise) increase in yearly expense. They won’t even have a choice it’s too much for the country to bear wiyh EVERYONE having that increase
People won’t believe govt money can run out. It it can. Then even the 47% Romney spoke of will be SOL
