bamstercare proves Hayek right about fatal conceits

Here’s the reality, 10 million (maybe) signed up with 6 million (maybe) getting subsidies, if they can get past the IRS audit.

State exchanges not doing well, Insurers asking for big premium increases, COOP program a black hole for crony money.

But a helluva slush fund for bureaucrats to play with and an opportunity to ration care starting with reducing the Medicare fund.

What a success.

And in the real world, people looking at insurance premiums rocketing up for plans that have hidden costs in the deductibles and coverage gaps. Families paying more than 10,000 dollars a year for insurance that has thin coverage and hidden self pay costs that are staggering.

Socialist central planners got their slush fund and their power.

Docs quiting, inefficiencies and access problems created by rules and regs.

And of course the magical electronic medical record so bureaucrats can do population research and compromise confidentiality.

Nice work Jonathan Gruber and all you dems who wanted government socialist healthcare.

Let’s hear it about providing low-cost universal coverage with a smile.


One response to “bamstercare proves Hayek right about fatal conceits

  1. “Why didn’t insurers cite these factors to explain why costs have increased? Because the government has its boot on their throats, and they know if they complain, they will be ruined. That’s why they need to raise rates but can’t talk about their real underlying reasons for doing so.”

    This is where the short-term focus of corporate management in the insurance industry (stretching not long beyond the current fiscal year, if not the next quarterly reports) hampers their response to the cancer of Obozocare. The Cloward-Piven Strategy here is to make the private sector’s provision of health care benefits fiscally impracticable by way of statute and “regulation” such that the popular opposition to single-payer health “insurance” will be worn down and replaced by a willingness to tolerate a complete government takeover of health care and all allied enterprises.

    “A man who chooses between drinking a glass of milk and a glass of a solution of potassium cyanide does not choose between two beverages; he chooses between life and death. A society that chooses between capitalism and socialism does not choose between two social systems; it chooses between social cooperation and the disintegration of society. Socialism is not an alternative to capitalism; it is an alternative to any system under which men can live as human beings.”

    — Ludwig von Mises
