We all know that Obama and the Democrats committed fraud on a massive scale when the sold the public on Obamacare. I do not believe that, in the annals of history in any democratic country has a government ever committed fraud against its people in such a way.
Andrew McCarthy makes the case that the purpose behind this fraud was to pave the way for socialized medicine. The goal he says, was to knock everyone off their insurance, to destroy the insurance companies by bankrupting them, and then to have the government ride to the rescue. I have no doubt that this is correct. Indeed, I have never had any doubt, since conservatives, including those gathered at this blog, having been making precisely that argument since 2009.
What I’m wondering now, though, is whether the Democrats bollixed up their obvious goal through their own corruption and incompetence. In a couple of years, when everything collapses, will people see the government as the white knight charging to the rescue or, after having watched Obamacare in action, will they do everything possible to avoid having the government take over health care? If this plays out right, moving into 2016, won’t there be a rush to Republicans?
As always, the only question is whether the Republicans will offer a real market-based plan, or if they’ll just offer their own dreadful version of government-run medicine.
Incidentally, when it comes to government’s built-in incompetence creating large-scale technological projects, I cannot recommend this post highly enough.
