What Hudge and Gudge Got From ACA Obamacare
Freep | 2/6/2016 | CharlesOConnell

Chesterton's Hudge, Big Govt, postures mightily against Gudge, Big Biz, but when it's time to talk turkey, they are both very well mannered, civil gentlemen.

Koch Bros are tiny minnows compared with Wall St. whales who support Dems.

Ken Blackwell bemoans the fact that the Affordable Care Act has resulted in the diametic opposite of its stated intentions: "a plan that was supposed to mend our nation's fractured healthcare system has driven up healthcare costs, decreased market competition, and ultimately harmed patients."

And your point is?

The function of a quasi-governmental cartel/monopoly is not to benefit consumers. It is to enforce economy of scale, raise prices and discourage competition to benefit elites.

The textbook on how to engineer this public-relations shakedown was written in the run-up to the 1913 Federal Reserve Act and federal income tax institution of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constituton. The millionaire bankers (billionaires by today's standards) who sat at the roundtable planning this system of "protecting the little man, stabilizing the economy and banking, and shielding the common man from depressions and crashes" found this window dressing very useful, all the while their true motives were to consolidate the money system, drive out small banks and enlarge their own gargantuan gullets.

Gudge in Obamacare was the same people who hound you in your junk mail to join AARP. It's simply a technical exercise in consolidation of the insurance industry. Competition is its boogeyman. Only a centralized cartel can reduce costs and insure profitability. "Health" has nothing to do with it. Open competition among insurance in 50 States? What a quaint notion--never had a chance. CruzRubioTrumpSanders haven't even mentioned it this shearing cycle.

Hudge hussein is incompetent to administer it through the IRS? That was the plan from before the begining, exactly on schedule.

All's quiet on the Western front.

I will be voting for Cruz, because his pro-life window dressing is better than any other candidate's, not because he even dreams of really overthrowing Obamacare.

As long as we are voting for window dressing, that is EXACTLY what we’ll get. We go to huge rallies, volunteer for the campaigns and vote for this window dressing. And we expect things to change? I guess your mama DID raise a fool.

The answer is DON’T PLAY THEIR GAME. We like to think it will make a difference whether SWMNBN or Sanders or Trump or Cruz or Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum gets elected. NEWS FLASH: IT WON’T.

Until we can return government to working for us, instead of us working for them, it ain’t going to change.

The problem you have goes back to the first wars with abortion laws where instead of trying to save 99% and fight for the rest due to rape, incest and life of mother; they instead wanted all or nothing.
They got nothing and have made a huge climb now to even save the 99% they could have had originally.
The all or nothing strategy has caused the death of millions of people IMO.

I agree.

I see this related the “ratchet effect”. When the Left is in power, society is moved to the Left. When the Right is in power, they hold society steady. Then the Left gets back into power, and we go Left some more.

Regaining lost ground always seems impossible. In part, because we often avoid incrementalism and just want a great big honking victory — and this eludes us.

I just want to make some progress toward getting us back to what we used to be. For me, Trump isn’t “pure” but we would win some of the battles. That’s what I want.

A convenient current posture.
