… Obama is Going to Reach a Point on ObamaCrapCare …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,September 13th,2013

.. the way that things are going , the idiots in the ObamaCrap Administration are going to reach a point of No Return : they are going to be forced to admit that what they have created will not work .

.. The unions are complaining like hell . The AFL – CIO is realizing that the blowback on the insurance plans is going to hit their members , more than anyone else . Also , the “Cadillac Tax” on the higher – end plans is chiefly going to hit them . The influence that these loons have with the ObamaCraps have is considerable . Whether it will convince the ObamaCrap Administration to go back to the start things all over again is something else .

.. The ObamaCraps do not want to reopen ObamaCrapCare . First , it would be an enormous defeat , one of unimaginable magnitude . They do not control the House , the GOP does , and the concession on OCC would have conservatives in general , and the Tea Party , in particular , licking their chops . Secondly , it would likely lead to the loss of the Senate in 2014 . Many Senators up in that fall ‘ s elections have yes votes on OCC on their records . They also reside in “Red States,” ones in which either John McCain or Mitt Romney (or both) carried their states . The lack of a filibuster – proof majority in the Senate means that the Senate GOP is in the ballgame . A good number of them are likely in position to get even for being “run over” by the DemoCraps during the original OCC debate . Others are new or newer , such as Mike Lee (Ut) , Tim Scott (SC) , and Ted Cruz(Tx) , who are either Tea Party supported , or are Tea Partiers themselves .

.. The GOP would demand a high price for any renegotiation . One point is that the use of H.S.A.s would have to be greatly liberalized . H.S.A.s would put consumers back in the ballgame in terms of economics , and their participation would be anthema to the ObamaCraps . Another point would be medical malpractice tort – reform . The strength of the plaintiff ‘ s bar prevented any action to go after any semblance of tort reform in the original debate . Obama would act as a brake , but the GOP would act to force the plaintiff ‘ s bar to come to the table . There are other items , but these would be the best places to start .

.. The market in health insurance has to be able to work . OCC almost totally prevents it from working . The idiots in Congress have a habit of forgeting that when they pass legislation that there are unintended consequences of the changes that their legislation will make in the law . Some can be foreseen , will the resort to simple logic and foresight . Others cannot , and have to dealt with as best is possible .
