Skip to comments.GOPís Obamacare fears come true: A national enrollment system under Obamacare.
Posted on 06/01/2014 11:52:25 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Liberals wanted a national enrollment system under Obamacare.
They might just get it.
Right now, 36 states rely on HealthCare.gov, the federal exchange, to enroll people in health coverage. At least two more states are opting in next year, with a few others likely to follow. Only two states are trying to get out.
Thats precisely the opposite of the Affordable Care Acts original intent: 50 exchanges run by 50 states.
The federal option was supposed to be a limited and temporary fallback. But a shift to a bigger, more permanent Washington-controlled system is instead underway without preparation, funding or even public discussion about what a national exchange covering millions of Americans means for the future of U.S. health care. Its coming about because intransigent Republicans shunned state exchanges, and ambitious Democrats bungled them.

The VA death panel delays of treatment are the GOP’s worst fears about Obamadogglecare.
Politico socialists just plain don’t get it.
The bureaucratic snowball is rolling to single-payer.
I’de like to reach out to Supreme Court justice john Roberts just to thank him for that knife in my back. It twists every time I read something like this
Obamacare the new VAcare but on a larger scale.
What “GOP” prediction about 0bamacare has *not* come true?
The knuckledragging neanderthal idiots, they called all the outcomes perfectly. How dumb is that?
There remain some legal questions about the powers given or withheld from the Federal exchanges.
History will record this as the worst piece of legislation ever passed by the US Congress.
And history will show that this is probably one of the 3 worst ruling by the US Supreme Court. Absolutely the worst single piece of reasoning by one judge (John Roberts)
Republicans knew this was designed to fail, in order to fast track socialized medicine before Obama left office. The wealthy will be fine and they are the ones we send to stop or support this run to the left legislation.
Boehner Republicans in congress have failed to fight this with the constitutional protections given them in the power of the purse.
The McConnell/Cornyn Republicans are into personal power and position, which mostly requires silencing the conservatives among the Senate.
The plot only thickens in the lawlessness and efforts to implode America.
One of the most overlooked aspects of the year just ended is the vindication of Chief Justice John Roberts -- a vindication that showed up as the national catastrophe known as ObamaCare got rolling. Roberts may have also doomed Hillary Clinton's chance to live in the White House again.
The chief justice, an appointee of President George W. Bush and reputedly a constitutionalist in his jurisprudence, set his diabolical trap (diabolical to Democrats) on June 28, 2012, when he joined with the four liberal justices on the Supreme Court to uphold the constitutionality of ObamaCare.
Conservatives and Republicans across the land were apoplectic. But in hindsight, it appears that Roberts actually saved the Republican Party from going into a death spiral and imperiled the Democrats instead. This suggests amazing foresight, but it wouldn't be the only instance.
For example, Tevi Troy, a scholar at the Hudson Institute, made a remarkable prophecy a year and a half before the Court's decision. It was soon after the November 2010 midterm elections, in which Democrats in Congress and in state legislatures suffered huge losses.
In an article in Commentary magazine, Troy wrote: The Pyrrhic victory Democrats secured for themselves [when President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law] may prove not to have been a victory at all but rather an ever-roiling, ongoing, and recurring act of political and ideological self-destruction.
How's that for prescience?
When the Supreme Court ruling came down, a shocked conservative historian, Paul Rahe, cited as a cause the PR pressure that President Barack Obama had been exerting on the Court in the fevered weeks leading up to the decision. It was "an act of judicial cowardice," he fumed. But then he added, "There is, I am confident, more to it than this."

Mitt Romney wins.
America has his RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE and the rest
of his antiAmerican statism and worse.
Yes. John Roberts = socialized medicine
..one blackmailed judge...
He never should have been nominated with that skeleton in his closet and he probably never would have been confirmed if the rats hadn’t known about the leverage they would have.
I just can't wait till Hillary chimes in. After all, Hillary has ALL the answers to Obamacare. Hill just can't wait to sit in the Oval Office and tell Americans how to get great healthcare. After all, Hillary came up w/ her wonderful "HillaryCare" years ago (/Snix).
Obama did not have to put on his thinking cap---b/c it was Hillary Clinton who whispered in his sweet little ears.
Yes, voters, it was Hillary who originally used the wonderfully reassuring if you like your plan, keep your plan a phrase that helped Obozo get reelected.....
...and the talking point that Obama relied on during his fight to push Obamacare through Congress on a straight party-line all-Democrat vote.....
NOTE Hillary's 2007 campaign website was unearthed by America Rising. America's Rising found written on the website under "HILLARYCARE"---AKA Hillarys American Health Choices Plan---the phrase: if you have a plan you like, you keep it.
VIDEO of Hillary saying, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
HILLARY VIDEO http://burstupdates.wordpress.com/2013/11/15/hillary-2007-if-you-like-your-plan-you-can-keep-it/
See a smiling Hillary (above) in 2007, saying: You can keep the doctors you know and trust. You keep the insurance you have. If you have private insurance you like, nothing changes, you can keep that insurance.
I could sell dog poop by mail if I had the force of the IRS behind me.
All the draft dodgers are now going to be force nelisted, and the Clinton draft dodging maggot hero of theirs, as a liar, will get exempt.
People are real tools.
It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.
And despite all the advantages extolled for single-payer, it, too, is an incredibly complex and singularly inefficient method of delivering health care services to the proper recipients.
The old Rube Goldberg inventions to accomplish what should be a relatively simple and straightforward transaction, is made into an impossible and wholly implausible series of sidetracks, complications, delays, and in some cases, reliance on non-existent means of moving to the next step in the task.
The current VA system is just a practice run.
REPEAL and do not replace.
