GOPís Obamacare fears come true: A national enrollment system under Obamacare.
Politico ^ | 06/01/2014 | By KYLE CHENEY and JENNIFER HABERKORN

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.

That’s precisely the opposite of the Affordable Care Act’s 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. It’s 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.

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.

POINTS TO PONDER---The USSC Roberts Trap Is Sprung
American Thinker ^ | January 2, 2014 | Bill Dunne
FR Posted on Friday, January 03, 2014 4:49:02 PM by Kaslin

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."

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.

USSC Justice Roberts Obamacare decision may have also doomed Hillary Clinton's chance to live in the White House again.

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 Hillary’s 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.”

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.

I said this when the GOP refused to run the exchanges and was eviscerated for it. You fight it but you WANT your State to run the exchanges or the Feds will. And once the Feds do you will end up with single payer.

Can we PLEASE elect someone smart? We need to stop electing “knee jerk morons”. We need people who will think further than 2 inches in front of their face.

There were ways to do this and ways not to. And, of course, the GOP did it the wrong way.

The GOP? You mean the party of traitors, imbeciles and cowards?

Their candidates for the last to presidential runs were the worst possible. They promoted these losers and undercut anyone who demonstrated the slightest hint of conservativism.

Meanwhile, in the House and Senate races, anyone who defeated Rove’s (RINO) favorites were trashed and backstabbed by their own party.

...and here you are dreaming that the GOP doesn’t want to give the democrats everything they want.

Screw the GOP.

If all states drop their exchanges, one of the more valid lawsuits being brought against Obamacare will become moot.

That lawsuit claims that it’s unconstitutional in a state that has both a state and federal exchange to give subsidies to those who enroll in the federal exchanges, yet not give subsidies to those who enroll via the state exchange.

Sounds like the NY and CA exchanges will drain their taxpayers for a bit longer before they’ll face bankruptcy like the one in MA.

I don’t see where it makes a difference since insurance plans are different for each state. Imagine what will happen if it is ruled that subsidies are only for state exchanges.
