‘The Government that Robs Peter to Pay Paul Will Always Have the Support of Paul’

This is one of the great axioms of government. It is the reason why, no matter how bad, how complex, how dishonest, how generally damaging a government program is there are some (the Pauls) who will defend the program to the end. The “Pauls” are getting paid. (With someone else’s money.) They will say the sky is red. They will insist that water flows uphill. That, like in Orwell’s 1984  2+2=5.

Obamacare is of course a colossal case in point.

Even liberal Mother Jones admits Obamacare is a crony capitalist jack (But they think that’s a good thing)

Of course the health care companies like Obamacare. THEY WROTE SIGNIFICANT PORTIONS OF IT. That was the deal with the “devil” Obama made. The Dems essentially gave the insurance industry (and other parts of the health care industry) a massive transfer of wealth from America’s middle class to their corporate bottom lines.

Lesson here is – get a lobbyist.

Aetna CEO sees piles of taxpayer financed profits thanks to Obamacare

That’s nice. It sure is good to know that the crony deal of the century (so far) Obamacare, is working out for the giant insurance companies. I was worried for them.

I’m joking of course since the giant health insurance companies along with Big Pharma wrote a good piece of the law. A law which was not even supported by a majority of Americans but was forced through Congress on questionable procedural grounds. A law which has now financially addicted a good portion of the American people like it was designed to. Yep, good times for the health insurance companies.

Congress Looking Into Why IRS Has BIG MONEY Contract With Botched Healthcare.gov Company

One would have thought given how terrible the Obamacare rollout was that CGI (the company which designed the website for the program) would have been run out on a rail by this administration. Even despite the fact that one of CGI’s senior executives was Michelle Obama’s roommate at Princeton. Healthcare.gov was a cluster-you-know-what for the ages.

One would be wrong however.

The United States already is the largest single-payer health provider in the Western world, and the system is failing

Word coming down the anecdotal (and now non-anecdotal) grapevine is that Obamacare is a developing nightmare. No one knows how it’s going to work in the long run, or the short run for that matter. There seems to be pain at every level. From the patients who have no idea what they are covered for, what a deductible is etc., to doctors who are increasingly just dropping out and retiring, things are not going well. Billing is more difficult. Compliance is more difficult. Margins are being squeezed. Quality of care is going down. All while liability risk is increasing. A bouillabaisse of dysfunction.
