  • “In place of quick service and painless billing,” aka the way health care used to operate.

    “‘It’s not fair – you know, I signed up last week like I was supposed to.” may be translated as “It’s not fair, I voted for Obama like I supposed to.”

    Chickens, meet roost.

    Well put. The Dems may discover in November those chickens flying the coop (voting booth) or worse pulling the lever against them.

    Bob:

    Have you read Krouthammer’s recent column! You should post it.
    The most brilliant political strategy I have heard in a long time from a mainline conservative.
    Try to repeal the hidden insurance industry “bailout provision” from obamacare…with a bill perhaps tied it to the borrowing limit extension. Get the liberals to vote to subsidize “fat cat” big business insurance companies (who they demonized originally-and whom I despise anyway for sucking up to the obama trough).
    They will then ,it seems, have the option of pulling out of obamacare, before they are bankrupt, and it will collapse totally.
    Even if it does not pass, the liberals will have to pay for thier vote in Nov….This is a win win. NO?

    This is one of the goals of Obama care.

    How else are you going to reduce medical costs?

    By the way a new or even somewhat old study finds that people go to the doctor and or emergency room twice as much as they did before they had insurance.

    Isn’t that a nice thought. 10 million or more people hitting up the doctors and hospitals twice as much as they did before.
    But Obama care was supposed to save money on medical care not use it twice as fast.

  • I and many, many others made this point in 2009/10. All one needed to see it was to look abroad, and a basic understanding of human nature. But Progressives willfully ignore human nature in favor of idealized intellectual constructs, with very predictable results.
