Unintended Consequences? What are those?

"But, but...that just can't be!"

I can hear the True Believers™ saying it already.

This was to be expected, too.

And I will now point out that the intention of the law; supposedly to provide everyone with healthcare, regardless of financial responsibility, is now having the opposite, real-effect.




So, the Stupid Son-of-a-Bitch (That'd be Barry Ooooooo) should just snap his fingers and get on the idjit box and come clean about his abject ignorance of, well, everything, to the entire populace of the country, and then beg forgiveness.

And then resign.

And then tell his even less bright VP to do the same.

I'm sure Rahm and Cass will figure out a way to put the screws to those companies.

Or else.

It's going to be interesting -- in the Sun Tzu sense -- to see what they come up with. Because there aren't three people in the entire administration who have a fucking clue what the word "actuarial" means. And I include Queen Kathleen (Commie -- Ohio), notwithstanding her job description prior to her last gig.

Nice to see you at my haunt again.

Your observation about the plotting within the Whore House are right on, I'm sure.

These bastards just CAN NOT figure out that business is business and you can't stay in business when someone else, especially government, is telling you the rules about what you can and can't do.

It's a fight to the death, I'm afraid, and these asshats are just determined to forcibly gag everyone with their philosophical bullshit, sure that it will cure everyones' ills, since they are sure everyone is sick.

Fuck 'em.

Let them do their dance.

Seriously, I've said it before; the best thing that can happen, at this point, is for the controls to be put entirely into Barry's hands. He'll nose-dive this fucker straight into the ground.

It's an extreme attitude, but I'm just convinced that catastrophic losses, and by that way, death too, will be the ONLY way to convince people to fix the problem that we have called, "Government."

It's an anachronism (we'd learned this before too, only to forget the lesson), and needs to be put back into its rightful place, as servant.

Nice to be back; had some knitting (not the medical kind) to tend to.

Heinlein wrote over and over in a number of ways that when a republic matures sufficiently, the terms "public servant" and "public master" become semantically indistinguishable. Unfortunately, most of his protagonists had the capability to unass the planet in question while we have no such remedy.

I argued against the various and sundry bailouts with about anyone who'd listen not only from a fiscal-policy perspective (which in and of itself is certainly sufficient) but from the philosophical one as well. The markets needed to cleanse themselves and were never given the opportunity. This crowd seems hell-bent on dropping us all deeper down the mineshaft of collective dependency and hoping we -- and they -- never hit the bottom of the hole. It's coming.

I'm afraid I'm in agreement with you as opposed to Beck (Glenn, not the other one) in that our only choice at this point is to let Jugears auger it in so we can start fresh. The principal question then becomes whether or not we have the stones to absorb the collateral damage.

And there's gonna be a hell of a lot of that.
