Many on the Right are rubbing their hands together with glee and many on the Left are wringing their hands over the recent ObamaCare disasters. Beyond the half a billion dollar plus website that took over three years to mature to its current state of utter incompetence, is skyrocketing health insurance premiums, deductibles the cost of a good used car, the inability for people to keep their current plan or doctor, and the rationing of care that is looking more like an inevitable reality than a scare tactic of crazy Right Wingers like Sarah Palin.
The Left is worried that the wave of ObamaCare troubles will drown them at the polls on election day. Those on the Right think the health care disaster created by the President and his congressional marionettes is going to collapse the Affordable Care Act, and Americans will run in mass to a free market solution to the health insurance problems that have plagued 15 percent of the population in the decades prior to the law's implementation.
I have bad news for both the aforementioned players in this high stakes game of control of America's health care insurance industry. For the Left, they will forever be expending political capital defending a law for which not one Republicant voted. Additionally, they run the risk of losing the support of one of their core constituencies, the young, who are going to be saddled with paying the freight for health care. And for the Right, their dream of ObamaCare collapsing of its own weight is going to morph into the nightmare of a single-payer, government-run health care system when the spectacular failures of the current "reform" are blamed on the involvement of commercial insurance companies. Those on the Right who think that the hundred year wait for government-run health care by those on the Left is going to be abandon now that it has been given the force of law and the blessing of the Supreme Court of the United States, are living in denial.
No, my friends, ObamaCare or something worse is here to stay. That is why it was so important for Republicants to stop its funding in the recent continuing resolution/debt limit battle. As long as hard-earned taxpayer dollars are free to flow into the Affordable Care Act like current through the electrodes to Frankenstein's brain, the monster of ObamaCare will live. The severity of its failings will only hasten a complete government take-over of the greatest health care industry in the world. This, of course, was the plan that is now right on schedule with help from a weak and flaccid opposition from Republicants. Finally, for all those who still hold out hope of ObamaCare collapsing with the weight of its failures, please tell me the last federal law that was dismissed which affected a sixth of the nation's economy, gave Leftist everywhere wet dreams, and bestowed virtually unlimited power on the executive branch.
