Like we didn’t see this one coming.
Obamacare is crumbling.
We – the smart ones – knew it wouldn’t ever work.
Democrats – the not so smart ones – knew it wouldn’t work either, but right now they’re hopped up on this socialism kick and figured, what the hell? These idiots will vote for us as long as we keep redistributing cash, might as well keep it going.
Now, it looks like the Obama administration wants to implement a “public option” to replace Obama’s landmark legislation.
A “public option” is not good news.
From Federalist Papers:
So now that the obvious has come true, Barack Obama is floating an idea to save the entire system: Go full-steam into true socialized medicine, complete with the dreaded “public option.”
In an article for The Washington Post, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a former Obamacare top official, said he had a fix for the problems. He offered a five-prong solution, but one in particular stands out: A public option.
He says that “we should consider a public option,” because “consumers should never be subject to the whims of insurer withdrawals or withdrawal threats,” The Daily Caller is reporting.
What is a “public option”…
A “public option” is essentially a “government-sponsored and government-run insurance plan, probably modeled on the traditional Medicare program, which would be offered to customers on the exchanges as an alternative to the private-insurance plans,” according to the American Enterprise Institute.
Unlike private insurers, who have to set prices through negotiating with hospitals and physicians, publicly run insurance plans would not have the necessity to negotiate. Rather, a public option would be in the business of setting prices, not market equilibrium.
If Hillary Clinton is elected president, the American dream will have effectively ended.
Obama has done his best to make sure U.S. citizens are treated worse than illegals, and Hillary would carry on that legacy.
