Understanding the Real Goal of Obamacare

Resolved: Obamacare Is Now Beyond Rescue – Bloomberg

But it’s far from clear that this is true. The law is unpopular, not only with voters, but also apparently with the consumers who are supposed to buy insurance. The political forces that were supposed to guarantee its survival look weaker by the day. The Barack Obama administration is in emergency mode, pasting over political problems with administrative fixes of dubious legality, just to ensure the law’s bare survival — which is now their incredibly low bar for “success.”

Although the fixes may solve the short-term political problems, however, they destabilize the markets, which also need to work to ensure the law’s survival. The president is destroying his own law in order to save it.

What those who make this argument miss is one crucial fact:  The Obama/Democrat goal is not necessarily to “save” Obamacare, but to use it to destroy the American health care system that preceded it.

If Obamacare is repealed, but then replaced with single payer because it turned the previous health care system into rubble, the Democrats will regard is as being the most successful ploy in the history of their party.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
