What if it's not single payer that's the plan?
« on: January 16, 2014, 04:15:27 PM »
Conventional wisdom among the Beltway Intelligentsia is Obamacare is nothing more than a Trojan Horse for the single-payer system.  It will fall under it's own weight as the death spiral spins down toward the bottom.  How can we disagree with them?  They go to all the right parties and write the columns.
If you take a look at the price for an Obamacare policy for the family of four or three or two, even after "subsidies" ain't cheap.  What happens?  The responsible tighten their belts and add hot dogs to another day on the weekly menu.  They also stop reproducing.  When the responsible buy diapers, diapers get donated to the poor.  When the responsible purchase food for their infant, food gets donated to the poor.
The poor reproduce anyway, like they did when they were Catholics in Jonathan Swift's day.  The wealthy can pay without blinking their trust funds.  It's the middle-class gets taxed further and further into oblivion.
That is income inequity.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Lenin: grind the middle class between the mill stones of inflation and taxation.  Where are we today?  Right there.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
