Rub’s right here. Delaying just the personal mandate not only sounds good to the average American but it will cause more problems for Obamacare as only the will sign up to get their expenses paid.
Heck, Obama could be forced to do it himself, that could be good too as only Obamas finger prints are on it..
1) defunding it was never a real possibility
2) Delaying the whole bill could help Obama in the long run.
3) Delaying just the mandate is devious.
If only the sick people who really need insurance sign up, then the health insurance industry could collapse. They would have to raise premiums at a massive rate for everyone, which people couldn’t afford. If every health insurance company goes bankrupt, then even the Republicans won’t be able to refuse signing up for single payer, because there will no longer be a private sector option for citizens to cover huge medical bills.
The law says health insurance companies cannot charge more for sick people, and they cannot deny any people with pre-existing conditions from signing up. That’s why premiums for most people are going up. If the healthy people don’t sign up, which the individual mandate was supposed to force them to do, then the insurance companies will collapse under the dictates of Obamacare.
Republicans calling for a delay in the individual mandate with no other delays in the law are hastening the collapse of the insurance industry and the arrival of single payer.
