… Big Shot [News Editorials , on ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 18th,2013

.. when it is small – town newspapers calling for repeal and replacement of ObamaCrapCare , that is one thing , but …

.. when it is the editorial pages of the Chicago Tribune [link1] , and the Las Vegas Review – Tribune [link2] ?

.. that is something else . The Tribune is , of course , the largest newspaper in the Tribune newspapers chain , and is the largest newspaper in Chicago , Illinois , the home of POTUS . The Las Vegas Review – Journal is , by far , the largest newspaper in the state of Nevada , as well as Clark County , and the city of Las Vegas . Las Vegas is , of course , the seat of power of Dingy Harry Reid the (for now) Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate .

.. That these two papers are ringing the bells of these two jokers is not insignificant . Obama will never be on a political ballot , again . Right now , Dingy Harry is likely to retire when he is up again . Reid will have a gigantic target on his back , by then be the Senate Minority Leader , and have more than one well – financed opponent . A primary opponent for Dingy Harry (from either the right , or from the left) cannot be ruled out . Things could get very hot , indeed for the Dingy One .

.. Here are some snipets of both editorials …

… from the Chicago Tribune …

the headline is enough … Stop Digging . Start Over .

… from the Las Vegas Review – Journal …

Congressional Democrats can’t run away from this mess fast enough, as evidenced by the number of partisans proposing or supporting legislation to let individuals keep their current plans — which led to the president’s Hail Mary on Thursday. At this point, however, it’s impossible to fix that broken promise. The insurance industry, which has spent all year entirely remodeling plans to become Obamacare compliant, can’t turn it all back around in just 45 days and is furious with being scapegoated into trying to do so. An industry insider told, “This doesn’t change anything other than force insurers to be the political flak jackets for the administration.”

Said Karen Ignagni, president of America’s Health Insurance Plans: “Changing the rules after health plans have already met the requirements of the law could destabilize the market and result in higher premiums for consumers.”

As the guys in those Guinness commercials would say, “Brilliant!” Obamacare policy premiums in many cases were already going to cost significantly more money; this “fix” could cause even bigger increases. The law is so deeply flawed, with so many components in direct conflict with one another, that tweaking just one part will accelerate its collapse.

The Obamacare debacle is just getting started — and it only gets worse from here. Repeal and replace.
