Obama Care’s Obama Scare

Obama Care is, as the Democrats love to remind its opposition, now the law of the land. In the ramp-up to the release of this Obama Scare Monster the public was fed a steady stream of reassuring deceptions accented with exaggerated descriptions of attractive features. What was excluded from their sales pitch was the huge appetite this Monster would have for the United States tax dollars. The basic theme was to hide the voracious appetite and the long claws and drooling maw filled with sharp shredding teeth and accentuate the pretty outfit they had dressed up the Monster to place the public at ease. It was the classic case of selling one item and delivering another which would result in prosecution for consumer fraud if you or I used a similar sales technique. The one valid central truth which the public was told was that for Obama Care to work it would require near full enrolment by the youthful and healthy members of American society to enroll in order for care to be affordable for the healthcare industry to provide for the older and less healthy members of the population. This would be the main element which would transform Obama Care into the Obama Scare Monster terrifying and feeding on those most needing healthcare by denying them the necessary care for them to lead a comfortable and productive life.

 

Then came the fateful day when the cage was opened and the Obama Scare Monster was released on an anxious and waiting American public. The entrance was less than spectacular as the Obama Scare Monster timidly crept from its cage half way before scurrying back into its protective cave refusing to interact with the anxiously awaiting American public. All attempts to coax the Obama Scare Monster to come out and interact with the awaiting American public fell on deaf ears. Something was not operative in the interface, or so we were informed but that given a few tweaks and adjustments and the promised delivery would be a wonderful and spectacular as had been promised. Unfortunately for the administration, the Obama Scare Monster continued to be more timid than scary. It remained lethargic and uncommunicative taking long months before it even began to interact with the American public. And then came the worst of all possible news, the enrollment numbers were lagging dreadfully behind what had been projected and necessary. The people were not taking to the Obama Scare Monster. Apparently the people were not as enthralled and this meant that expectations would need to be lowered.

 

This began the manipulations of the Obama Scare Monster to lessen its threats and allow only the comely adornments to be presented to the public. First they gave exemptions to the loyal segments to offer them immunity and protection from the worst threats from the Obama Scare Monster. Next came the pushing off for a year the employer mandate which clipped back the mighty claws of the Obama Scare Monster. Even this was not sufficient and the Obama Scare Monster was beginning to turn on its handlers and snap at them repeatedly. Next came the delaying of the individual mandate placing a muzzle over the Obama Scare Monster’s razor sharp teeth muffling its bark and neutering its fearsome bite. Still the Obama Scare Monster was not readily accepted, especially by the healthy youth so necessary for its wellbeing. Soon all that could be neutralized through postponing the most fearsome attributed of the Obama Scare Monster leaving only the pretty dressings viewable by the public but still the people were wary of accepting what the administration was selling.

 

What will be the future of Obama Care? Will the Obama Care be a successful system or will it really become a fearsome Obama Scare Monster eating up trillions of dollars and bankrupting the American budgets? Will all the postponed features ever be enacted or will the Obama Scare Monster die before it is fully revealed? Perhaps the Obama Scare Monster was never really something which was supposed to be loosed as it never had any real teeth or claws but was simply a sweet pet disguised as a monster in order to scare the public into demanding the government save them and instead of the Obama Scare Monster to give them the sweet and purring healthcare system like the Europeans and Canadians have already implemented. That may be the real secret of Obama Care, that it was presented as a terrifying plan that posed to destroy the American healthcare industry while bankrupting the nation thus forcing the transformation of the greatest healthcare system the world had known into another identical single payer government healthcare system that lurches forward with increasing delays and slowed advancement of medical research and developments. Perhaps the entire idea was to scare the American public into accepting mediocrity in the guise of saving them from an even worse disaster which the Obama administration was threatening to release. The final question is will the American people acquiesce to this devilish plan or demand that government do whatever is required to restore the healthcare industry to its former glorious and proven level by undoing every bit of damage they have wielded. Time will tell but it is hoped that the Americans will demand exceptionalism even if their President refuses to recognize such himself.

Let’s All Celebrate the End of “Joblock”

A new term has been coined in Washington DC to describe virtually every job I have ever had over my forty plus years of employment with one or two exceptions. Even though the majority of the employments I have held can optimistically be classified as joblock positions which lacked the spiritual fulfillment of a supposed non-joblock position, not once was the primary reason that I worked at these positions hinged on the health insurance provided. The health insurance was a perk, not the main reason for working, the main reason was called a salary. I even had one position which I remained in a few years longer than the changed management team was tolerable, due to their generous retirement plan, but never have I kept or taken a job because of the fantastic health insurance, even when I worked for a leading thousand bed hospital in a major American city. So, I am led to wonder what the world must be like for those politicians who believe that people are working in order to have health insurance or some health care plan. Then, I should not be too critical of people who mostly have never held an actual real-world productive job and spent their entire lives, since running for Junior Class President, running for the next position where they simply sold influence and invented requirements for those not as influential as they and their fellow political class members. But the recent past since the CBO report that Obamacare will eliminate over two-million job seekers there has been a parade of Democrats and Administration people speaking on the great advantages of people being freed from the necessity of working for one’s health insurance will be for Americans in the future under Obamacare.

 

I have been trying to look at the bright side of this situation and not dwell on the fact that taxes will necessarily skyrocket, to use a phrase Obama liked to apply to electrical prices after Cap & Trade gets passed, in order to pay for the health insurance for those no longer victimized by joblock, and I may have found a few. This now explains why Obamacare forces parents to provide coverage for their non-joblocked children up to age twenty-six. The reasoning must be that by twenty-six even the most ardent refusenik avoiding joblock will have figured out that a salary is another bonus of joblock and surrendered to taking a joblock position even if they must explain to their future employer their demand for health coverage over their need for a salary. It also explains why the Democrats are pushing to raise the minimum wage one more time, for now. They are making it so that there will be no entry level positions forcing people into joblock. Now those tasks will either be outsourced or demanded of lower management or the new guy depending on the size of the company. We will now finally allow more starving artists to starve in good health. After visiting some art museums a few years back I decided we had enough artists and judging by the “art” and their price tags, I would like to call for an investigation to find out how they could be starving. As an example, one group of pieces consisted of pieces of driftwood painted one color and they were named “Yellow Driftwood #4” and “Green Driftwood #7” and I wondered how did they manage to sell any color driftwood numbers 1, 2, and 3? This will also be a new approach to minimizing the unemployment rates as it will manage even better than the Obama Presidency to encourage people to leave the job market thus removing any possibility that they will be counted among the unemployed still seeking employment. Perhaps the government will see its way to making the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) pay all the new self-proclaimed artists some form of subsistence remittance kind of similar to welfare so the funds they receive can find new avenues for their use.

 

The introduction of more people simply enjoying a life of leisure will stimulate the leisure industry which supplies the tools for such pursuits though how these people will have funds to purchase anything is still a mystery. Then again, it also explains the rumblings in the political circles, particularly the far left, that are calling for a guaranteed minimum wage which having this many idly avoiding joblock will make a necessity. There has to be additional item I have failed to realize as this is nowhere near sufficient plans to keep the over two-million people who will not become job seekers employed in other pursuits. Of course, if I understood the implications from some of those speaking in favor of this set of statistics, they were speaking more as if most people will simply not be working the long hours they currently work and instead will have part time work. Of course this part time work will always be under thirty hours per week thus not providing any health insurance making the position a non-joblock position. You see, only those positions which provide health insurance qualify as joblock as nobody takes a full time position except for the health insurance. Who needs a full time salary; especially if they can simply get the minimum wage up to a more respectable level of say twenty-five dollars an hour. I am still scratching my head trying to get my arms around the concept that all these years I was laboring away simply for the health insurance, who knew?

Prepare for Single Payer Government Healthcare

The fight to defund or otherwise repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), better known as Obamacare, is a mute cause as it is a false flag put in place to take the United States as swiftly as can be legislated to the instituting of a single payer federal healthcare system similar to those in Britain, Canada, and the rest of Europe. As many who have studied these systems have already realized, and the rest will find out soon enough, such a method for addressing the delivery of healthcare to a nation’s population results in a lower level of care; longer waits to see specialists or even your regular physician; inability for the system to address any healthcare emergency situations such as a flu epidemic; the slowing of medical breakthroughs, new drugs and innovative treatments eventually bringing such necessary advances to a complete dead stop; and the eventual destruction of the entire healthcare industry due to creeping increase in percentage of federal budget channeled into healthcare causing higher taxation and less funds available for any other government expenditure. Much of the financial breakdown which has strangled much of Europe economically can be traced at least partially to the costs of government provided healthcare. Another problem directly tied to government healthcare is the lowering of physician and healthcare worker salaries compared to other occupations leading to lower numbers of individuals choosing to go into the medical fields eventually leading to shortages which only make the strain on the system increasing and the waiting lists growing longer until total failure becomes the obvious end result. But first we have to enact and then destroy Obamacare so that the people clamor for the government to come to the rescue and completely take control of the nation’s healthcare system when it becomes obvious the system is nearing collapse. So, how does this happen?

 

The first item necessary is to understand the entire scheme behind Obamacare. Obamacare was never intended to function and was sculpted for failure. One of the reasons that President Obama is granting waivers is not solely to reward and protect his friends and those who supported his campaigns, though that is how it often appears, but President Obama is granting waivers because it does not matter whether or not a sizeable percentage of the population is covered by Obamacare or not, what matters is for Obamacare to become unworkable and destroy the healthcare industry so completely and all the other related industries, especially the health insurance companies, such that there is no system left of healthcare as we have known it for all of our lives thus making government run single payer healthcare as the only option available in the end. Probably the greatest single exception granted by President Obama was delaying the employer mandate to provide insurance from taking place as scheduled and allowing it to be pushed off for one year, and I would not doubt if next year it is pushed another year into the future, was not done just to give large corporations a pass but to force even more people to have to use either the government provided exchanges, whether they be provided by your state or  left to the Federal Government to provide, or to option to pay the relatively minimal fee as an uninsured person. The aim is for the exchanges as well as other insurance plans to become exorbitantly expensive until nobody bothers to get insurance and instead pay the penalty which will costs thousands of dollars less than insurance. And why not since if you suddenly develop a serious medical problem you can always get insurance to cover that emergency and then return to paying the minimal fee and forgo expensive insurance. Yes, this will cause a collapse of the insurance industry in record time and also push anybody needing care into the government healthcare exchanges which is the forerunner of single payer government healthcare. So, why won’t our political representatives listen and deal a deathblow to Obamacare as so many have petitioned them to do?

 

This is the easiest but also most disgusting truth which drives straight to the heart of the majority of the problems with so many subjects concerning government and its place in the American public and each individual life within. The problem comes from the basic desire of lifelong politicians to gain control, or at the least influence, over every single item in the lives of the individual. These new lords of the ruling class desire control, and not just a little control but complete and unchallengeable control over every instance of your life. The conservatives desire to control over morality while the liberals want control over your wealth and societal norms. Both see granting the government control over many parts of our lives as simply a necessary influence in order to leverage their powers and influences on the rest of our behavior. If every choice you might face in your life instead of being made by the individual is granted to some government bureaucrat, then the government has that much more control, and the name of the game is control. Think about why the enforcement for Obamacare is not tasked to the Health and Human Services Department but is instead invested with the Internal Revenue Service. Why are they giving complete knowledge of your health and your every medical need to the same people who also hold a complete record of your financial information? Could it be that the IRS is very practiced at enforcement and have the most ruthless enforcement agents and protocols of any department within the government? Of course that is why. And the one item we must understand is that the vast majority of these lifetime powerbroker politicians seek to have as much ultimate control over the lives of the American public, serfs as they see it, and having an agency which has access to all of your financial and healthcare information and can exercise virtually unlimited control over your healthcare gives them the power of literally life and death over each and every individual. That is why Obamacare will be allowed to become the law of the land and is planned to utterly fail and fail horrifically. Once their feint into a new approach to healthcare has exploded and the public is in panic, then they will enact what they really wanted from the beginning, single payer, government healthcare, and after that freedom and liberty will have all but died in America.
