Suicidal Idiocy Should Be Painful

Doug Ross @ Journal: AETNA CEO: Prepare for Obamacare Premium “Rate Shock” With 100 Percent Increases Possible Next Year

The clinical laboratory journal Dark Daily summarizes the effect on Obama’s beloved “middle class”, to wit: they’re about to get boinked, hard.

It seems clear that “sticker shock” is about to hit many middle-class Americans. As a consequence, clinical laboratories should anticipate higher rates of bad debt from patients who are financially overwhelmed by all the increases in the cost of their healthcare.

As conservatives predicted, Obama, Pelosi and Reid all lied about Obamacare as they rammed it through Congress, sight unseen. Rates are going to skyrocket. Employers will drop coverage. Physicians will stop accepting Medicare patients. Insurance carriers will go bankrupt. Care, when you can find it, will be rationed. And the system is going to melt down, with the poor and seniors suffering most.

I guess that I’m supposed to be upset about discovering this latest case of “water is wet, Obama and Democrats are liars,” but, well, shrug. Nothing is happening that wasn’t both expected and predictable – if you had slightly more intelligence than God gave a chipmunk.

Since a majority of voters apparently don’t even have that, they only way they will ever learn is after instruction from the Gods of the Copybook Headings.

Good and hard.

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.
