Finding out what’s in it: A Harvard research study has found that the program in Obamacare designed to improve hospital care has had no effect, and essentially is not working.

Or, to put it another way, in exchange for increasing regulations and cost, we have gotten nothing in return.

Gee, I seem to remember a lot of unwashed, uneducated rubes from the backwaters of flyover country saying loudly that these programs in Obamacare would not work, back in 2010. Too bad these brilliant Harvard experts considered themselves too smart to pay any attention.

    They should have used a computer model.

    They work for everything else.

    Whats not noted in the story is that Obamacare is most likely doing exactly what it was designed to do, which is fail badly and cause a call for single payer among the voters. The Government then can ride to the rescue and institute what the left wanted all along….

    The infuriating thing about all this is that humans never seem to learn the basic lessons of history. We try to reinvent the wheel every other generation and end up failing again. And it always costs lives.

    That is the price we pay for losing control of the schools.

    And adding insult to injury, there is never any shame or consequences to bear by the authors of the failure. Obamacare will fail, but not one person will lose a job let alone go to jail or even be publicly shamed…..

    Here is one of BHO’s speech writers, speaking to Charlie Rose, outing THE speech writer who came up with the “you can keep it” lie. It may be out of context, but its hard to tell….

    I think the troubles at the VA have pretty well queered the pitch for single-payer. The VA is single-payer and it’s a mess. The Left is going to have to come up with a better story.

  • Steve Earle

    You’re right, the VA is the poster child for single-payer failure.

    But when has failure ever been a problem for Leftists? They aren’t held to the same standards as the right and the failures aren’t taught in schools. Worse case is they have to wait an extra year or two and try again.

    The two things that may have caused us to pass a tipping point in the USA is first losing the mainstream media, and then losing the schools. And it was accomplished without firing a shot…..

    Charlie Rose clip is not out of context. (personally, I’d love to hold that mastermind-hack accountable for his lies, but I can’t. In some 3rd-world hell-hole, he’d have been put up-against-the-wall & shot, years ago. I of course could not advocate doing that, but I would understand the desire.)

    Multiple excellent points!

    pzatchok: Yeah– a computer simulation might not have cost as much as the “study.”
    (all these klowns–just endlessly feed at the trough.)
