Surprise, Surprise


'The debate over repealing this law is over': Obama boasts 7.1 MILLION have signed up to Obamacare - but study shows just 858,000 newly insured Americans have paid up!

What are the previously uninsured doing about Obamacare? She and her husband, the only middle class people in a sea of poverty,
are the only people she knows, amongst both friends and acquaintances, who have signed up for Obamacare. The others have no interest in getting health insurance. Even with a subsidy, they don’t want to pay a monthly bill for health insurance.
[And just wait until all those who don't even have a checking account are supposed to mail in a premium check once a month. Ain't. Gonna. Happen.]

Your Say

7.1 million. Not "around 7 million", but 7.1 million on the nose. I just love the decimal point. Gives the whole thing an aura of accuracy I'm pretty sure does not exist, given the secrecy and uncertainty about actual enrollment numbers. Not that our President would lie....

I scrolled through my Facebook feed- you'd be amazed at how many people had no clue that obamacare meant they were forced to buy insurance or face a fine.
WHAT? You mean we HAVE to buy insurance now?
Who knew?

Next step is to wait for the collapse of the insurers and hospitals so the State can declare the necessity to nationalize them.

It's just not that hard, people.

I am trying to follow the money. I can see where weakening the doctors/hospitals and owning the insurance companies will result in govt gaining control, but I don't see where the money figures in. You have to feed and clothe prisoners and other chattel so's they will work for you, right? If the medical care goes to a very low level we will have epidemics and folks dropping like flies from this malady or that. That's bad for business.

Oh well, I suppose if it works for Canada it'll work for us, kinda, eh? This reminds me of the story line of Bladerunner.
