As ObamaCare crumbles, Obama returns to--Can you guess?--fundraising

Remember how since-demoted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said we'd have to pass the massive ObamaCare health law to find out what's in it?

Well, now three years later that's happening and a lot of people are not liking what they see.

Remember how ObamaCare was going to save you money?

Not going to happen. Premiums are going up, some by as much as 100%. And a new study by the nonpartisan Society of Actuaries finds that on average insurers will have to pay 32% more for claims under ObamaCare.

Remember how ObamaCare was going to cover more than 44 million uninsured Americans?

Not going to happen. As the immense law and its 86-inch tall stack of new regulations roll out, millions of Americans will remain uncovered, even if the troubled, challenged law works flawlessly, which it hasn't. And won't. The latest Congressional Budget Office estimate is that even with full implementation, more than 30 million Americans will remain uncovered by the so-called Affordable Care Act.

Remember how ObamaCare was not going to add "one single dime" to costs?

Not going to happen. The Congressional Budget Office estimates ObamaCare will add $1,300,000,000,000.10 to the costs of the nation's healthcare. Obama masks this with new taxes, of course, and shuffling monies around within government programs, including cuts to Medicare.

Remember how last year the Supreme Court, lead by a cowed Chief Justice John Roberts, finally settled in the affirmative the legality of ObamaCare's core individual mandate, which takes effect next January?

Actually, not. More legal challenges of the law are percolating up through the legal system.

This thing is a disaster.

My only question is how will they blame it on the Republicans?

It is a disaster, but it is a freebie. To those who have nothing to lose, it is why should we care?

A failed government program can only be made right by funding it more and offering less.

Any questions?

If this thing does indeed implode, better on Obama’s watch?

They will blame the Republicans for blocking some other things the liberals wanted, such as the public option. The liberal line will be that, if only Obamacare were more intrusive, then these problems we see wouldn’t exist.

Bottom line= liberals will blame Republicans for the fact that Obamacare is a hodge podge of bureaucracy and regulations. If only the liberal dream of single payer socialized medicine had passed, then we would be in healthcare utopia now, per liberal dreamers.

An unworkable monstrosity, wrapped in an ungodly partisan maze, destined to destroy any visions of rat election comebacks.

Don't kid yourself, obamacare is not crumbling. You might wish it was,but that is as far as it goes.

There are two political parties that wish for it to succeed: The Democrat Party and the Republican Party.

The Democrats want it to succeed because it will give them more political power. It will allow them to set up a few of their cronys to take in a tremondous amount of money to be funneled back to the Democrat Party and it will destroy the free enterprise system.

The Republicans want it to succeed so that each election cycle they can say to their sheep, groupies, and zombies,"Elect me and I will defund obamacare". The day after being elected they will return to being quite as church mice on the subject. Until the next election cycle.

It will implode when the next open enrollment rolls around.

Both parties want it to be in place, perhaps not to succeed, but to be in place as an exercise in enslaving everyone to one of the new plantations, which today are corporations such as insurance companies. Not enough people were indentured to the banks you see...
