Don’t think that the sticker shock to both people able to get through to the exchange websites was an accident.
The Policy Prices were always supposed to be too high… and the exchanges were never intended to attract people to sign up.
In fact, the exchanges were simply supposed to scare the crap out of everyone so the Administration could step in and “solve” another crisis, with Single Payer.
What they didn’t plan on, however, was attention being brought to the cause of these high prices and this dysfunctional Socialized Health Care Scheme.
The Obama Administration is about to be forced to begin their War on “Big” Insurance Companies Early.
Obama Care is bad, bad, bad, and too many people are realizing it. (Many of us understood this when it was tried under Clinton… but I digress.) The President has been forced to own his Socialist Healthcare Scheme by the likes of Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, et al.
But Remember! The Folks in the White House cannot allow the Holy Grail of Socialism to be crushed… no matter what!
They need someone to Blame. (Pull out your copy of The Prince. I’ll wait.)
Machiavelli made the important point to his Prince that you need an enemy. That Enemy becomes particularly important when you are doing something to the population they don’t like. While you’re doing it you point the finger of blame at your Enemy… in this case, the Insurance Companies.
Niccolo also told his Prince to say whatever it took… whatever the peasants wanted to hear, and then do whatever you needed to get what you wanted even if it was the exact opposite of what you said five minutes ago. (We are seeing that right now with “We Will Not Negotiate!”, “I’m Willing to Negotiate.”, “We Will Not Negotiate!”.)
This was recommended because the Peasants, it was thought, were too Stupid to see the truth. Sound Familiar?
The Administration must begin telling everyone who will listen, that Big Insurance is responsible for all the ills they are experiencing with their Health Care. Particularly sky-rocketing Premiums, when in fact it is coverage mandates resulting from Obama Care which is the culprit.
Blaming Big Insurance will find a home with the Useful Idiots… without any question. But it could ring true with others as well, which is why it will be somewhat effective in diverting the attention and blame from the Presidents Hallmark piece of Legislation.
But this is all to Plan!
Because, this is all about Single Payer.
And, you can’t get there until you put the Insurance Companies out of business.
The Socialists have created the problem so they can Solve it the Way they Want to… Because it’s just not Fair until we all have Crappy Health Care.
So get ready…
Ice the Beer…
Here we go!
(It’s also worth noting that Socialists have enjoyed huge success ‘Creating Problems to Solve’. The Housing Bubble… Congressional Insider Trading… Pay Inequality… Sexual Harrassment in the Workplace… Enviornmental Apocalypse… The Right to a Phone… on and on…)
