The One Word Missing From All Those ObamaCare Ads
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 09/30/2013 | John Merline

In a speech at a Maryland community college last week promoting his namesake health reform law, President Obama mentioned the word "benefits" 10 times.

Free preventive care, coverage for children up to age 26, a better drug plan for seniors. "We're giving more benefits and protections," he said.

But there was one word Obama didn't mention once in his entire 51-minute talk. And that word was "mandate."

That's despite the fact that a central feature of ObamaCare is the requirement that all those adoring young people buy insurance or pay a fine, and is the key to whatever chances of success it has.

What happens when millions don’t sign up? What happens when they fine millions, but millions don’t pay? Absolutely nothing.

The sound of one hand clapping...

What happens when people suddenly do pay for an item or pay more for an item than they did in the past? Look what happened when gas hit $4 per gallon and suddenly people could not make their house payments, and cut back on "disposable income" spending.

It is called the great recession.

Actually, those Obumbabots will receive a letter from the IRS next spring informing them that they will not be receiving their tax refund as it will be used to pay for their "free" healthcare.

Contrary to pronouncements by its cheerleaders, ObamaCare does not create rights, nor does it create benefits. It only creates obligations that coerce Americans to purchase a certain type of insurance defined by law.

Nobody says that mandatory auto insurance requirements create rights or benefits. They only create an obligation for drivers to carry liability insurance. Same applies to ObamaCare.

Unlike the auto insurance mandates, of course, Democrat-aligned persons enjoy waivers, exemptions, deferrals, subsidies and preferred treatment under ObamaCare.

What happens when millions DO sign up, lowballing estimated income and receiving undeserved subsidies? Will the IRS collect?
