Beware of Democrats Promising to 'Fix' ObamaCare
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 02/20/2014 | IBD Staff

Promises: Vulnerable Democrats think they've found a winning strategy for the November elections: Tell voters they can fix ObamaCare, but Republicans won't let them. It's a con. ObamaCare is unfixable.

'Joe Garcia is working to fix ObamaCare," says an ad for the Florida House Democrat. "He voted to let you keep your existing health plan and took the White House to task for the disastrous health care website."

Of course, Garcia fails to mention ObamaCare is the reason millions lost their health plans to begin with. Or that its problems extend well beyond a glitchy website.

But this is the Democrats' midterm election strategy, as revealed in a memo Politico got its hands on this week: Admit that ObamaCare has flaws, promise to repair them and argue that Republicans will only make things worse. Party leaders point to polls showing more people favor repair than repeal.

Still, why should anyone believe them?

How can one "fix" a law without reading what's in the law?

The only fix for healthcare is for the government to get the hell out of it

The problem is that we have many dumb voters who will fall for it. The American electorate, and especially the Democrat component, seem to be easily swayed by the next argument.

When is it time to “total” a wrecked car, even if it’s a new car? Insurance companies have a formula, and that formula says to “total” it when the cost of repair exceeds about 70% of the value of the car.

Why is ObamaCare already totaled?

Because the 30 million number of insured will NOT go down. There will still be 30 million uninsured when everything is in place.

Because health insurance costs for those under ObamaCare are reported as premiums 50-100 percent higher, doubled co-pays, and tripled deductibles.

The tripled deductibles alone mean that people who formerly had health insurance EFFECTIVELY have no health insurance.

So, this kind of chaotic health coverage is what will prevail as politicians spend years “fixing” it.

It will cost far, far more than 70% of the cost of replacing it.

Fixing ObamaCare is like fixing carcinoma - the only desirable fix is complete removal.

Fixing Obamacare is like fixing Frankenstein. No matter how many arms, legs and organs you replace, you still have a monster to deal with.
