If it’s Affordable, Why Does it Need to be Subsidized?

Sometimes the simplest questions are never asked.

I ponder this as I read an article regarding Oregon finally getting rid of their State Health Care Exchange.

I realize this next statement will not be a surprise for most of you who read my inanities, but…

We Don’t Have Any Money!

And When I say “We”, I mean The United States of America.  And When I say “Money”, I mean actual wealth upon which to base our currency in order for it to represent a frozen form of production at a consistent level.  And When I say That… I mean we’re quadrupling the money supply by printing dollars out of thin air, which is one of the single most horrific jokes ever played upon the American People.  We are devaluing (read “stealth taxing” or better yet “Stealing from”) Everyone who has a dollar without them understanding it’s happening to them.  Just 10-years ago a ‘dollar’ was worth, let’s say, a $1.  Today it’s worth $.25.  And we’re supposedly using some of that ‘magically new’ money to Subsidize something which we were sold as “Affordable”.  Remember Obama Care is actually called The Affordable Care Act?  Of course you do.

This entire legislative abortion needs to be repealed.

It needs to be replaced with legislation allowing Insurance Companies to conduct business across state lines as all other businesses are allowed to do by virtue of the Commerce Clause.

The Insurance Companies would be quick… quick as in that very day… to have plans ready for Individuals to sign up and possess Health Insurance.  Not Health Care mind you… but apparently having Health Insurance make you Healthier, rather than having Health Care.  (I know, I’ve learned a bunch of stuff over the last 6-years that I never knew or thought could be known.)

The Solution Seems pretty Simple if you don’t allow certain corrupting variables get it the way.

But then… how would the State Legislators and the good, honest, folks in DC extort… sorry, control… no… influence the Evil Insurance Companies… wait, no… their Evil Voters… not Evil!  Illegal? No.  Informed?  Um… let’s just say Voters,  and when I say influence I mean make sure their Voters get the very best Health Insurance from Companies which donate money to certain political campaigns… no, no, that sounds bad too…  Evil Companies?  Or, Evil Political Campaigns?  It just all get’s so confusing.

I’ll have to think about this over a six-pack.


The John Roberts Dart Board

Without a doubt there is a fine Hog Bristle Dart Board bearing Chief Justice John Robert’s Face hung in the West Wing.

We discussed this a couple of years ago immediately following Robert’s deciding vote forcing the ACA to be considered a Tax if the Liberals were to move Forward! in enforcing it.

ref:  The Benevolent Arsonist

To refresh, the Democrats had tried arguing that Obama Care (Affordable Care Act) was both a tax and Constitutional under the Commerce Clause.  It was an attempt to be too clever by half.  It was crafted to put the judges in a position that the Act was Constitutional under one scenario and not the other… A Hobson’s Choice of sorts with Approval being the outcome.  Or better yet, a Trap for Fools.

The Supremes didn’t do that.  What they Did do was determined that the Commerce Clause did Not empower the Leftist’s to enforce the ACA.

So… it’s ASSUMED to be legal as a Tax… but no decision was offered regarding the Constitutionality of the ACA being a Tax.

Here we are today.

The Administration is faced with having to delay, delay, delay.

Why?

Because the moment someone is taxed under the provisions of Obama Care they have been Harmed!  Harmed!

And when you’re Harmed, you can file suit.

Once the suits are filed they will be on their way to the Supreme Court for the Decision that was not addressed previously.  Is Obama Care Constitutional as a Tax?

The Administration knows it is Not.  We know it is Not.  Everybody knows it is Not… but you’ll still hear devote Progressives Profess it is.

Thus the only tactic the Liberals have is to continue trying to delay the mandates and penalties (taxes) associated with the destruction of the finest Health Care System in the World by this Leftist Scheme known as Obama Care.

I suspect the John Roberts Dart Board is FULL of Darts… and all other sorts of sharp thingies.
