The problem with the liberals’ idea that the failure of Obamacare will lead to single-payer is that the voters are going to be seriously pissed by the substantial rise in health insurance premiums. The DNC has had their bite at the apple, so to speak, and now why should the voters trust the Democrats to muck up the system again?

If the Democrats’ plan to achieve single payer went like this:

1. Pass Obamacare.
2. Implement Obamacare.
3. Make sure Obamacare fails.
4. Pass single payer.

then they missed a step between 3 & 4, where there’s this thing called “Win re-election.”

Obamacare is what happens when the Underpants Gnomes do health care.

The State’s Role
One thing that does not get talked about with Obamacare is that it is NOT insurance.

If you cannot pay the amount the government decides that the IRS will take from you, then you will be placed into your states welfare roles. And if you get sick, and require care, the state will pay...

...THEN THE STATE WILL GO AFTER ALL YOUR ASSETS TO COVER THE COSTS. AND YOU OR GRANDMA WILL LOSE YOUR HOUSE OR OTHER BELONGINGS.

There is no good side to Obama care and making sure people were covered more than they are now is not what it does.

OBAMACARE MAKES SURE THAT THE MEDICAL-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX HAS INCOME FROM TAKING HOMES AND ASSETS FROM PEOPLE.

DO NOT FORGET THIS

Note from CNS News

People whose household income is too small to qualify for the subsidy will be put on Medicaid. People whose household income exceeds 400 percent of the FPL will get no subsidy at all.

According to the IRS, which responded to a CNSNews.com inquiry on the issue, a household earning an annual income that is just $1 more than 400 percent of the FPL is ineligible for an Obamacare subsidy, period.

As explained by both the IRS—which wrote the regulation governing the Obamacare subsidy—and the Congressional Research Service, which published a July 31 report on the matter (Health Insurance Premium Credits in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), the Obamacare insurance-premium subsidy essentially works as a cap on the percentage of annual income an eligible person is required to pay in health-insurance premiums.

If the Republicans are clever, they can replace Step 4 with real reform that introduces free-market solutions.

Obama thought delaying the employer mandate till 2015 would delay what the employers do before mid term elections. WRONG! Companies plan ahead and are already gearing up and making announcements to accomodate “Obama no care” now. Companies are also informing employees as to why they are making their decisions. Mid term elections are going to have some ticked off voters.
