The Uninsured Are Turning Against Obamacare. That's A Problem

The Obama administration is running into a somewhat surprising roadblock in its final push to get Americans enrolled in Obamacare ahead of the March 31 deadline: The nation's uninsured are increasingly suspicious of the law.
And why shouldn't they be worried that their future is being held in the feeble hands of an unknown interlocutor in Washington?

But also, maybe folks know that government that oversteps its capabilities does so not through good intentions but for nefarious purposes. That is why the Obamessiah said over-and-over 'if you like your health care plan you can keep it.' It was an intentional lie repeated so that people acquiesced to the foisting of the biggest government intervention on the American people in many decades. The lies were told in the hope that it becomes the truth. The problem is that the Obemessiah was not smart enough to recognize that lies do not become truth just because they are repeated. Maybe he was listening a little too closely to what was said almost 100 years ago....
A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
Vladimir Lenin

The Uninsured Are Turning Against Obamacare. That's A Problem

If you don't like government intervention into your lives, then you are liar according to Democratic Senate Majority leader Harry Reid....

You have to like what the central government does for you. You have no right as as an American to have an opinion about what the government FORCES you too do through the force of law and the threat of penalty and jail. Washington, can largely force you to do anything now despite the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution. The concept of individual liberty in which the nation was founded is dead. Long live collectivism and central planning! Speak out against the government, you then are attacked as a liar by the government. Isn't this what authoritarian regimes do? According to the Senate majority leader, you are a liar. Here are examples of Americans that are liars... Here.

The Next Shoe To Drop: Obamacare Will Increase The Cost Of Employer-Sponsored Insurance - Forbes

The disaster of central planning of healthcare in the US keep rolling on crushing everything in its path. As I have said, this central government socialist nightmare will increase costs, reduce access, hurt outcomes (make people sicker and deader)and funniest of all, decrease coverage. Less people will have healthcare insurance coverage after all of these one-size-fits-all mandates than before. How stupid are these people?

You would never have heard these stats from the "health experts" before.....

Until now, the United States has had the highest survival rates in the world for heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Cancer comparisons are the most useful because all Western countries keep careful records for this disease.

For all types of cancers, European men have only a 47.3 percent five-year survival rate, compared to a 66.3 percent survival rate for American men.

European women have only a 55.8 percent chance of being alive five years after being diagnosed with any type of cancer, compared to 62.9 percent of American women.

American survival rates for breast, prostate, thyroid and skin cancer are higher than 90 percent. Europeans do not have a 90 percent survival rate for one of those cancers.

The European rates are even worse than they sound because many cancers are not discovered until the victim's death -- twice as many as in the U.S. All those cancers were excluded from the study.

Canadian cancer survival rates aren't much better than the European rates -- and they've been able to sneak into to the U.S. for treatment! Women in the U.S. have a 61 percent survival rate for all cancers, compared to a 58 percent survival rate in Canada. Men in the U.S. have a 57 percent survival rate compared to 53 percent in Canada.
So, we seek to be more competitive with Europe? If our heart and cancer survival rates are higher, what are we seeking to do? I think its just that the government wants to control our healthcare so that we are subjugated to them. Too bad.

China Training For "Short, Sharp War" With Japan, US Navy Warns | Zero Hedge

I have to say, that I am disappointed in lots of local Hong Kong people and their tacit support of China aggression against Japan with the intent of taking over the useless islands contested. Worthless islands are worthless islands and its all about "face" and not about common sense.

Additionally, China is figuring that the USA does not have the stomach to stand up and this is both a stupid and understandable position. The current POTUS has proven to be dim witted when it comes to foreign relations. Europeans love this guy since they see in him the redistribution of wealth and socialism that they hold dear.

However, the rest of the world cannot take this dim witted ditherer seriously and this is where China's position gets dangerous. Figuring that POTUS will probably fold, the chances for further complications such as a strike back by Japan or some kind of provocation from North Korea, things could spiral out of control quickly if the Obamessiah is then forced to raise the ante and this becomes a broader conflict. I do not see this as winnable for any party and not worth fighting by any side.

Barack Obama: The George Wallace of Free Speech | Power Line

The government today does not want you to allow you free assembly or the ability to express your political opinions if they do not agree with with Democrats or the socialist policies that they advocate. Government as it is contemplated today has to be stopped.

BRUCE: Obamacare isn't a train wreck, it's a cancer - Washington Times

Americans will get much less than they think that they should be getting since the government WILL cheat you. A private company that cheats you can be sued and one can make life miserable for these kinds of cheats. However, when government cheats you, you have no recourse at all....
So fooling you, by lying about what the situation is, will at least get you to buy into the scheme. That’s weird, but that sounds like something Mr. Obama would do.

One guy ruined the plan after he purchased health insurance on the California exchange and then had the gall to call doctors to set up an appointment. His temerity drove him to call every doctor listed as in-network, and none of them were.

In the normal world, this would be called “fraud.” In Obama’s America, it’s called a “snag,” and on a national scale, the Obama regime labels it “Shut up, Fox News!”
Americans are being screwed and I hope that my fellows citizens enjoy every moment since it is purely their fault that they, 1. Elected a clown. 2. Trust government to do what it is patently incapable of doing.

Charles Krauthammer: The health-care myths we live by - The Washington Post

The government's flat-earth prescription to solve short comings in American healthcare will only lead us to a world where Liebnitz philosophy will be the reality going forward and that is 'since this is the only possible worlds, its the best possible world.'

So, looking at some the flat-earth science in the government's central planning approach to healthcare we find that the assumptions made are not what we are finding out is actually happening. But of course, the brilliant folks in Washington would never let on that this is the case, but we can sum it all up as such...
This is not to say that medical practice should stand still. It is to say that we should be a bit more circumspect about having central planners and their assumptions revolutionize by fiat the delicate ecosystem of American health care.
American will pay with their property and lives for what will end up being a churlish denial of what people have worked for and earned at the hands of government bureaucrats.

Obama Considering Three Year Extension To Obamacare | Zero Hedge

Central planning does not work. However, failure is just a matter of time and we never know how long that will be. The Soviet Union failed but that took over 70 years. China had to largely abandon central planning after around 40 years. Europe, is in the process of unwinding and if one looks at socialized medical systems there, they are bursting at the seams due to changes in demographics.

However, central planning in the USA, such as the housing debacle in the USA 5 years ago, took 70 years for brilliant central planning to go off the rails. This is because, politicians cannot help themselves to leave things alone.

But, Obamacare is collapsing, deservedly, before it is even implemented since poorly designed central planning and the ability of modern market economies to adjust is just more robust. So what is the stupid POTUS doing to save his crowning communist achievement?
Actually, the only reason why Obama is suddenly willing to compromise over every aspect of his "crowning achievement" is that finally its tactical, and strategic failure has become clear for all to see. So it would be best to enact it piecemeal, and claim success for whatever legacy aspects of the system are working, while blasting everything that his unprecedentedly complicated, centrally-planned contraption has unleashed.

Finally, why three years? Because by then Obama will be gone (absent some very radical changes to presidential term rules), and Obamacare will be someone else's problem.
People are going to suffer greatly due to central government meddling in their lives. We suffered a cataclysmic financial crisis 5 years ago, one that created by government itself and since politicians just cann't help themselves, they double down on socialism. We will pay and we will pay dearly.
