The Obamacare Flaw: People Aren't as Dumb as Democrats

You only have 5 to 7 days or maybe 30 days to comply with the law and this time they mean it.

Kind of.

And once again Obama has shown us that his basic problem is not one of governance but one of math.

After sternly vowing there would be no more delays for Obamacare, Obama and company sternly vowed to delay, and delay, and delay until every man woman and child in America is sick to death of Obama's signature legislation.

"According to a Health and Human Services official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity about decisions that have not been made public,” wrote the Washington Post in what counts as news these days, “an exact time frame for this extension has not been set, and depends in part on how many people request it. Nor have officials decided precisely how long people will have to select a health plan after they get the extra time."

Gee, it sounds like they’re talking about a budget. An Obama budget. That can take years in extension.

I'm guessing the administration figures that if they're sick enough hearing about it, they’ll go get coverage.

Don't get me wrong: Obama still has a problem of governance, but you can't work on basic shapes and colors until you get your numbers right.

And no matter how hard he tries, Obama can't get his numbers right.

On anything.

Here's what's driving this fiasco: the whole premise of Obamacare has been that younger people will sign up en masse, allowing older people – – you know the ones who vote? – – to keep this party rolling.

You see, because it's a numbers-based system, where supposedly more money is supposed to come in than go out…


That's the problem Obama has. Don't ask. It's a liberal thing.

So hey youth of America, this is what hope and change looks like.

And get used to it until you're very, very old.

Because according to the US debt, our debt per citizen is $193,163 and our debt per family is $757,716.

And that's before we even start paying for Obamacare.

And that's before we even start paying rising interest rates.

And that's before you start paying your student loan, your car, your house, and any of the other happy crap the federal government now decides that you have to purchase from them. Did someone just order a GPS monitor for that Tea Party non-profit?

Let's just hope they don't ask us to buy everything online.

"Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of health and human services,” says the New York Times, “has said repeatedly that the federal website has been repaired and is ready to handle a surge of applications expected just before the deadline. But White House officials and some technology experts working on the exchange began to worry that the website might freeze up if the demand exceeded expectations."

On the other hand, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid contends people are too stupid to know how to use the Internet, and that's why Obamacare failed to hit the deadline.

Amazon, Ebay, Priceline, Facebook, all figured it out.

Even GEICO (Government Employee Insurance CO) made it so easy a caveman can do it.

That's because they trained federal employees, like Harry Reid, first.

Yet somehow they want us to believe that the youth of America lacks the technical skills to fill out an online application, and press the submit button.

This is a generation of youth who knew how to press the enter key before their grandparents did.

This is a generation of youth who believe that "all thumbs" is a sign of physical fitness.

And here's a question for you: if the IRS can design a system to collect taxes online, why can't they design a system to purchase insurance online?

Yeah, I know.

You see, because it's a numbers-based system, where supposedly more money is supposed to come in than go out…
