The Wall Street Journal pointed out in this editorial that ObamaCare was
dismantling the individual insurance market, as its architects intended from the start … this month’s mass cancellation wave has been the President’s political goal since 2008. Liberals believe they must destroy the market in order to save it.
Conservatives should not, and must not, focus on the broken Obamacare website. The federal government will just keep throwing hundreds of millions of dollars at the problem, and sooner or later, it will function.
The website is only a symptom of the chaos Obama and the Democrats have deliberately sown.
Obama and the Democrats are perfect post-modernists: they believe that truth is relative. They believe that words can mean whatever they want them to mean. So Obama, a serial liar, is actually telling deeper truths that we, the great unwashed, are too stupid to comprehend.
The other night, several distinguished physicians — Democrats and Republicans — from my community met with Karen Bass (D), who represents California’s 37th District. These physicians, who are deeply concerned about ObamaCare, wanted to have a conversation about the ramifications of the 11 million words of regulations that make up this law.
Bass spent the first ten minutes of the meeting blaming Republicans for the broken ObamaCare website and the miserable failure of the roll-out. She added that the millions of cancelled policies were, naturally, the fault of the insurance companies.
As a true post-modernist, Bass refuses to take responsibility for the chaos her party has inflicted on America.
When asked by one of the physicians if she favors a single-payer system, Bass said, “Yes.”
Can she point to countries that are successful models for a single-payer system? Bass answered: “Canada, England, and Cuba.”
Bass lives in a standard utopian dream world.
Waiting times in Canada for treatment are frequently long. When our son, Ariel, zt”l, was ill with cancer, my wife Karen and I met dozens, if not hundreds, of Canadians who came to America for cancer treatments because, they told us, they would die before receiving proper medical attention in Canada.
In Great Britain, patients are dying in hospital hallways. Of course, Britain is going broke. All welfare states eventually collapse.
As Margaret Thatcher said: “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
And let’s not forget that neither Britain or Canada are great military powers. One of the reasons these two countries can limp along with a single-payer system is because they count on America’s military might to maintain their national security.
Patients have to bring their own pillows to hospitals. Not to mention the lack of aspirin, much less proper surgical facilities.
As any reasonable person knows, Cuba is a communist prison whose citizens marinate in poverty, food shortages, and misery.
Karen Bass is the perfect Obama cheerleader. She is ignorant of basic facts, but overflowing with delusional post-modern constructs of hope and change.
Karen Bass is not an aberration in the Democrat party. She is the Democrat party.
Get used to the chaos.
