We Passed this Law; Now We’re Learning What’s in It!

Counter-CutLaughter is good for the soul.  Our news would be hilarious if it weren’t so painfully true!

Incidents of social insanity have reached epidemic proportions to the point where it’s impossible to keep up with them.  They are literally consuming and destroying our society.  Some examples of our social insanity follow:

It’s called the Affordable Care Act, except it is neither affordable, nor does it provide improvements in health care. It’s even a tax that’s not a tax. Go figure!

Congress now wants out

So realizing its error, Congress now tries to squirm out of Obamacare for itself and its staff members.

Millions will lose existing benefits

Millions will be priced out of Obamacare and lose their current health insurance benefits

The quality of care will drop

The plan is supposed to expand medical care to many more people, but places such excessive burdens on health care providers that more and more doctors plan to retire early – hence the quality of care available will surely drop.  Wouldn’t it be better to remove the costly layers of bureaucratic administrators and non-productive medical malpractice attorneys from the system so we could pay for more doctors instead?

No one can buck the laws of economics, not even deluded lawmakers: Price (cost), quality, and quantity are interdependent. Decrease price and quality or quantity must be decreased accordingly. Increase quantity and inevitably either quality must be decreased or cost increased. It is impossible to decrease cost, increase quality, and increase quantity as promised by Obamacare.

Program failure is virtually assured

One of the key features of Obamacare is that people with “preexisting conditions” cannot be denied insurance or charged extra. Sounds great, doesn’t it? The problem is that smoking has been defined as a preexisting condition and insurers will be unable to charge higher rates for smokers than non-smokers as they do today. Since smoking is the leading cause of many serious illnesses and 1 in 5 American smokes, this will drive up overall program cost tremendously for all participants, squeezing a financially strapped system even more.


When insanity rules and lawmakers cannot differentiate between reality and delusion, all is possible.
