Obamacare Poised To Collapse

Like a dying star, ready to collapse upon itself, the biggest legacy of America’s 44th president is set to collapse. It’s not going to take a new Republican president. It’s not going to take the 71st vote in congress to repeal it. It’s not going to take anything drastic. It’s going to happen naturally.

Obamacare is set to collapse.

Well, it will if nothing is done. See, in order for Obamacare to be self-sufficient, as we were all promised it would be, it has to hit certain numbers. If it doesn’t do that, then lots of bad things start to happen. It costs the government more and more money because someone has to bail out the insurance companies who are going to be losing their shirts. It’s all a numbers game. And the numbers aren’t lying.

Obamacare is set to collapse.

Currently, Obamacare has 9.9 million people in it. Now, we’ve run the numbers here countless times. When you count the 6.5 million people who actually lost their healthcare insurance back a couple of years ago when this monstrosity emerged, and subtract that number out, you really only have 3.4 million people who were uninsured before Obamacare that are now insured. That’s pretty pathetic for a program that cost over one TRILLION dollars.

The dirty little secret to Obamacare is what has to happen in 2016. See, it’s a presidential election year, and all eyes are going to be on nominees, and debates, and all the other stuff. The Obamas are going to be packing up their crap in the White House getting ready to move on to life after ruling the country. And nobody is going to be paying attention to the point that Obamacare needs to have 21 million people in by the end of enrollment in March. If it doesn’t happen, they don’t have the money to sustain it.

And don’t think for a minute that there isn’t a push to get the people on board. But it’s going to be a stretch to more than double the enrollees in just one short enrollment period. The fines will help. They were just $95 or 1% of income in the first year. This year it was upped to $325 or 2% of your income, whichever is greater. Next year the fine goes to $695 or 2.5% of your income, whichever is greater.

But industry experts are predicting that the government can’t hit the goal the CBO set out. And with congress controlled by the GOP, there’s no way the floundering insurance program is going to get more money. That means a showdown is occurring and the GOP doesn’t have to do a damn thing about it. Oh, Obama can cook the books for a little bit…but in the end, finding roughly 6.5% of the public to sign up isn’t going to be easy.

And therein lies Obama’s biggest problem with his healthcare plan. It’s set up to fail…like all liberal programs, it runs out of money eventually. And all the GOP has to do is let it implode. Isn’t life grand?

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
