“Make no mistake, the congressional “fix” will be single payer.

This was all planned”.

Yup! Here are some excerpts from the blueprint they are working from:
“In the USSR a developed socialist society has been built. At this stage, when socialism is developing on its own foundations, the creative forces of the new system and the advantages of the socialist way of life are becoming increasingly evident, and the working people are more and more widely enjoying the fruits of their great revolutionary gains”.
“Developed socialist society is a natural, logical stage on the road to communism”. -1977 Soviet Constitution

Divorced parents will be sunk first. Existing child support orders are 25 to 50 % of net income (if they are behaving) The extra load will put them under n droves.

You mean the fathers will be soaked because they have to provide the medical for the youngsters. Mama can get by with an individual policy.

Look like the Dutch system. Four players that cornered around 80% of the market. Stifled competition and prices are around the same regardless of the company.

There is no downside - it is all sweetness, good intentions and “healthcare for all.” Problems will be minimized or not mentioned at all. Instead, the media will talk about nasty Ted Cruz, or twerking.

You forgot the most loyal democrats - inner city blacks who can barely read - they'll blame whites in general and President Bush in particular... and the MSM will quote them ... endlessly.

Democrats are scrambling for excuses: there wasn’t enough money or time. The decision to delay controversial regulations til after the 2012 election slowed the process.

The boys at the New York Times would believe sh*t was lumps of gold if it fell from the mouth of an elite democrat. Obama's incompetents are in luck - they don't have to work too hard to find excuses. Even now average dems are blaming President Bush for ObamaCare's problems..

The last paragraph is exactly what they wanted. Single payer is coming.

And one more thing. Failure of obamacare will not hurt the democrat party. Their voters are in the bag. They’ll never vote for anyone else no matter what happens. Because whatever happens in never the democrats’ fault. I’ve seen liberal voters make excuses for obama and the democrats when you show them a fact. Of course, these same people claim to be moderate. In fact, they think obama is a moderate. They told me so.

Obamacare is a profit machine for the insurance companies. They’ll be collecting government force premiums but not have to pay out anything because of the high deductibles.

Horsecrap. It could fail 50 times over, in ways we can’t even articulate at this moment, it could never provide a lick of medical care, it could be shown to be a complete ripoff and never cause anyone in the entire country to get a freaking band aid for their kidney dialysis treatment and it would be lauded by the administration and the media and 51.3% of the population. And the next thing will be that the admin insists that we have to import 50 million (more) illegals to make the system work, raise taxes, increase deductibles, and only offer medical care on Tuesdays and Thursdays and STILL the FSA will insist it is their birthright, it is perfection except that it only requires a bit more time to perfect, and it will be applauded by everyone as the greatest humanitarian thing the United States has ever done, notwithstanding the defeat of Naziism and liberation of Europe, and the defeat of The USSR.

It’s over.

And are you certain this can’t be written from scratch in that time?

Not a snowball's chance in hell. Possibly in the private sector, but government??? No way.

Given that voters are “fire fighters” and not “fire preventers,” we need Obamacare to kick in for the following reason. Voters evidently need to get “kicked in the teeth” by constitutionally indefensible federal Obamacare to motivate them to get off of their couches and use their voting muscle to repeal Obamacare.

Voters, including former Obama supporters, can do so by trying to elect 2/3 conservative majority control of both Houses of Congress in 2014 elections. If voters succeed in doing so, then Congress will have the power, under the Constitution’s Clause 2 of Section 7 of Article I, to override presidential vetoes. In other words, Congress will be able to repeal Obamacare without Obama’s signature.

It is not an insurance program. Insurance is a group of people who voluntarily agree to share risk. It must follow some basic actuarial principles or it will not work. The first principle that there is no free lunch. Obamacare will never work.

It imposes a 29 1/2 hour work week, what do you think that will do to America?

Ratings for Jerry Springer, Maury Povich, and SportsCenter will go up?
