I agree, they’ll use that approach and it WILL work on all but the hard cases. Taking over insurance is the quickest way to take over. Switch “Liberty” for “Liability” as the operative word in America.
And sadly, I believe people will accept it. Nobody wants to make any sacrifices, though many bloviate about armed resistance (the odds of an opportunity arising being infinitesimally low).
In Revolutionary days, a good percentage of the people prized liberty enough to risk all. Today, tell the average citizen he might have to pay more for mandatory services that used to be optional, and he becomes a quivering mass of jelly, defenseless, impotent, cowardly.
Hussein is smart and he knows he can't walk in and get your guns. But, he can make it so you will give them up.
Remember, one of his executive actions is to tell doctors they can ask you if you have a gun at home and if you have children there or older people there, and the doctors are supposed to report that. Then, Hussein knows you have guns and it's dangerous with those children and/or old people there and your medical insurance goes double in payment - or give up the guns.
He has already put in his healthplan to start next year, that if you smoke, your insurance cost will double. He has the power to write insurance regulations and he's got the whole country in his hand.
When I read about the cigarette smoking and already knew doctors were supposed to ask about guns, I knew he would do it this way and get away with it.
