As the propaganda blitz is gearing to frenzied heights about ‘all will soon be well’ with Obamacare, the country is dividing naturally into those too smart to believe the stream of demonstrated lies and incompetence, those with not enough between the ears who continue to believe the pap from Pennsylvania Ave, and those who are dedicated to deceiving Americans as they continue working on the country’s fundamental transformation. Fortunately the first group of our countrymen now comprise well over half of the population.
But one thing you can count on is that in the coming months the lies will grow in number, intensity, and sophistication. Already HHS' Sebelius has progressed to the second phase of misleading the public by not disclosing meaningful statistics of how many applications have actually been submitted to insurance companies, and how many of those have been sufficiently correct to result in acceptance and invoicing the applicant, and how many applicants have paid their premiums for the new and improved Obamacare policies. Instead, we get another shovelful of crap on how many people visited the site and were able to select a policy – which tells us nothing.
But the real problems will become a cascade in the coming year as the effect of not having a working ‘back end’ to the system that is able to handle the scrubbing, editing, and transmitting of application data to insurance companies. And, of course, there all those delays and special exemptions that have to be handled. And we haven’t even come to the ‘you can keep your doctor’ travails that will include the long waits and limits on provided services.
We Americans are about to get our first real lesson in socialism when our fiscally distraught government attempts to force down our throats the workings of an outrageously expensive ‘benefit’ guaranteed to outrage 80+% of the country’s healthcare consumers. Stanford economics professor Michael Boskin does an excellent job of spelling out that future for us in ‘Obamacare’s Troubles Are Only Beginning’.
