We’ve been forecasting that January would not be a good month for ObamaCare no matter how hard the kneepad media tries to make it so. We’ve been joined by Peter Schweizer, regarded as the leading expert on crony capitalism, is painting a bleak picture for the President’s signature program.
Appearing on Fox News’s Hannity with guest host Eric Bolling on Thursday, Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer said Obamacare is an example of “social engineering” that will only get worse – by design.
He said that the only people who like Obamacare are government bureaucrats and insurance companies.
Schweizer said Americans “are going to hear more horror stories” concerning Obamacare because “it is not just a problem with implementation” since the law was actually “designed to drive people” into particular government-approved insurance programs.
He said this “social engineering where a group” of so-called smart people “are going to redirect twenty percent of the economy” is “only going to get worse.”
“[W]here a group of so-called smart people…”
That, in eight words, is and has been the platform of the Democratic Party for 100 years. We call them “Know-Betters” because they feel like they know better than we do how we should live our lives. George Orwell would be spinning in his grave if he could understand just how much he’d underestimated Big Brother when he wrote 1984.
The goal of Democrats is to give us rules for every part of life. They are the masters of group-think and the concept of “individual liberty” – which the nation was founded on and which built this country into what it once was – are an anathema to Democrats.
It turns out that ObamaCare, the bright light for all true believers in big government, may just be the stone wall that breaks the stride of Progressivism.
Schweizer, whose Government Accountability Institute released a shocking report that found that President Barack Obama did not have a single one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare, said Obamacare defies economics because it increases demand for health insurance by forcing people to buy it, while claiming it will cut costs and lower the price.
Schweizer said that is why Obamacare will have more long-term, systemic problems than just the rollout and the initial implementation failures that the country is focused on right now.
What is good for the social engineers and the insurance companies will not be good for the American people. Schweizer said that even by the White House’s most conservative estimates, at least 6 million more people will lose their insurance plans when the employer mandate, which the Obama administration delayed, kicks in next year.
We’re pretty sure Schweizer is giving the administration the benefit of the doubt. We’re looking for more on the order of 40+ million people who are going to have the insurance plans they currently like taken from them. Those plans will be replaced with something that is more expensive and more difficult to work with than they have now.
We’re also going to be waiting with baited breath to see how many under-35 year olds sign up for ObamaCare. If it’s less than 40% of the sign ups we’re in a death spiral because the economics won’t work. They’ve gotta have large numbers of youngsters paying the freight for we Curmudgeons.
In the short term, we’re going to be hearing conflicting stories of people whose life was “saved” by ObamaCare – and the administration has thousands of people looking for those stories – vs. people who are having a sudden bout with reality. Reality being, health care isn’t free.
In the longer term, we’ll be watching for the breakdown by age of the insured and the pricing structure for 2015.
And then there will also be the likelihood of a federal bailout of the insurance companies who are going to be paying a price for dancing with the devil. Actually, they’ll just be charging the price, it’s the American taxpayers who will be paying it.
