Notes from Patriot Action
The ObamaCare train wreck – it’s awful, possibly purposeful, certainly useful for team Obama and its growing army of community activists and organizers.
In a previous report, we explored the question, “What if the ObamaCare debacle is really a diversion, using a military term a “feint” – a tactical distraction to draw our attention, our focus and our fire away from the real point of attack on liberty?”
Remember that horrible train wreck in Spain not long ago, captured on video? As tragic as it was, watching the crash and its gruesome aftermath was almost irresistible, wasn’t it? Well, what if the disastrous rollout of the Obama’s signature legislative achievement – what if this spectacular slow motion ObamaCare train wreck has been and is being allowed to happen so that what’s going on around the bend from the fiery crash site gets little attention, from the public, from the media or from Congressional investigators?
Think about it, friends. How could Barack Obama and his celebrated team of incredibly proficient, plugged in techies – the team that twice got him elected – be behind the utterly disastrous launch of the ObamaCare online storefront, healthcare.gov – arguably the biggest website failure in history? How could so much money have been spent to produce such a problem-plagued site that apparently was doomed in its developmental confusion? And how to fix this monumental mess, well, there doesn’t seem to be any clear plan…other than hope.
And now we learn that many, if not most, of the people actually signing up for ObamaCare through the website are enrolling in Medicaid, not signing up for private insurance policies they pay for, but adding their names onto government rolls – a financial drain on the system, not contributing to it. And many, if not most of those who are enrolling in private plans are finding their insurance premiums, deductibles and co-pays unaffordably high.
Plus, many hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Americans on individual insurance plans are losing their coverage. Every day we learn of massive new policy losses with company after company in state after state. Private health insurance is quickly becoming the endangered species conservatives have been warning about for years.
So, the ObamaCare train continues to run off the rails, car after car exploding and burning. And our focus continues to be on this unfolding disaster, this spectacular, colossal failure. But is it…is it really a “failure”?
Or is this train wreck a shocking success? A success in crushing the market-based health insurance industry, turning private insurance companies into government allies and crony accessories to a culture of dependency, forcing millions of Americans into a scary health care void. Then you’ve got all the seniors being robbed of Medicare benefits and Medicare-available doctors. In other words, ObamaCare is a wrecking ball, a virus spreading through and debilitating the system, a train wreck that wrecking health care.
Meanwhile – and here’s the really shocking part – tax dollars, insurance industry dollars, foundation dollars – tons of money – is flowing into a vast network of non-profits and community-based organizations that are building a massive and dynamic database of government dependents in order to fundamentally change America. Talk about the ultimate community organizer enterprise – infiltrated by, if not run by, Obama activists, former campaign operatives, former White House insiders, advisors and advocates for social justice and wealth redistribution.
We’ve identified a nationwide network of Obama supporters, sycophants and surrogates that’s growing bigger, stronger, more influential every day as they lay the groundwork for the successor to the current version of ObamaCare – the son of ObamaCare. That will be even more powerful and politically connected and formidable.
When this ObamaCare train wreck is finally and totally derailed, and voluntary ObamaCare signups are acknowledged to be a failure, then we’ll see auto-enrollment – automatic signups of all sorts of people will become a necessity in order to salvage what’s left of a shattered system.
Yes, ObamaCare in its current form is a disaster – possibly purposeful, certainly useful to the community organizer of all community organizers and his expanding political army. An army of darkness forming and fortifying just around the bend from the spectacular ObamaCare train wreck at which almost everyone is gawking…almost everyone. Except us.
