The planned chaos of ObamaCare is a deliberate strategy by the Obama administration and his gang of America Dismantlers to place the health care industry into a tailspin, forever changing the way in which the people of the United States receive their health care and relate to their government. President Obama delivered a speech to an audience of union devotees in which he said that his plan was for a single-payer, government-run health care system, but that it would take a decade to get the public to accept it, and therefore would have to be implemented in stages.
And now, with the recent admission of the Internal Revenue Service that they unfairly targeted groups to be victims of their far-reaching authority based solely on political ideology and opposition to President Obama, one has to wonder how ObamaCare, which in large part will be administered by the IRS, is going to work out for those with a conservative viewpoint. The new health care law imposes no less than 18 new taxes, 12 of which directly fall on the backs of the middle-class, breaking yet another Obama promise not to "raise any taxes on the middle-class."
It is not just a matter of the IRS using its power to make life harder on conservative organizations like the Tea Party, but they also shared private information from these groups with Left-leaning groups so that they too could join in the harassment of conservatives. The recent revelations about the administration's use of the IRS to suppress political opposition makes it entirely probable that health care services may be denied or approved based on the same criteria.
Much of the regulatory nightmare of ObamaCare has not been "determined by the Secretary" as the law provides. But businesses do know that if at all possible they must reduce their workforce below the fifty employee threshold and employee work hours under the thirty hour limit in order for their companies to escape castration by the new law. What may eventually happen is that Congress will prevent companies from protecting themselves against the law by making it illegal for those companies near the thresholds to reduce employees or employee work hours. This will not harm the big corporations who provide only about fifteen to twenty percent of the jobs in this country. The real victims will be the many small businesses that will have to shut their doors forever. This, of course, is part of the Obama strategy to make government the health care provider of last, first and only resort. The law has already had a deleterious effect on employment. We have now entered our fifth year of unemployment over seven percent and Gross Domestic Product growth under three percent, a record for post-World War Two America. Today I heard a report from the main stream media that claimed the economy was "making a steady recovery." This kind of language, five years into an economic recovery, is analogous to saying a house is cozy when you mean cramped, and a handyman special to mean the place in falling into a sink hole.
ObamaCare takes the worst part of the current health care industry and expands it to encompass the entire system. The idea of government exchanges is a direct, if not grossly exaggerated, copy of the HMO model. A model breathed into existence by a law created by the late Teddy "SpongeBob" Kennedy. The Lefts answer to conservative concerns about bureaucrats coming between patients and their doctors, was that this was already happening with insurance company bureaucrats, a direct result of the Kennedy law. But the Lefts solution to the bureaucratization of health care is even more bureaucracy. This top-heavy, centrally-run health care system is bound to fail, as it has everywhere else it has been tried in the world. But then, President Obama and his Washington elite have designed the system, not to succeed in providing people with the best health care at the lowest cost, but to put more and more power into the hands of fewer and fewer elitists who have exempted themselves from the boondoggle under which they have forced the rest of us to live.
