That's what they want.
The reason ZeroCare keeps jacking "standards" is to raise the price of insurance such that people choose to pay the penalty. Then Medicaid becomes the default single-payer system, with middle class Americans getting the same "coverage" or worse than illegal aliens.
Think of it: Medicaid is already in place as administered by the States as a default single-payer system. All we're talking about then is scaling an existing system.
Consider that scenario to the next level: Once most everybody goes on to Medicaid, then FedGov can stipulate the services States must provide to get Federal funding, and what do you know but those will be services Democrats demand: mental health (because they don't go to church), AIDS treatment and abortions (ditto), transgender surgery and infertility treatment (Ibid), etc. Services Republicans demand will be curtailed.
It's easy to do. The States will cry foul, but they will be sued into compliance in Federal court. At that point, the bureaucracy in Washington has taken over State government, and you have lost ALL representation at the State and local level. Federalism will then be totally dead.
This is what needs to be explained as to how ZeroCare was ALWAYS meant to work. The longer they stall for time, the more effective it will be against the States. Just watch. See tag line.
This latest version of h/care is that we’re all unstable loonies-—he consider himself the only sane one in the room.
Another glaring example of Ohoho’s elitist unmitigateed contempt for all Americans.
