Something is rotten in Denmark.For the past few weeks I have tried to wrap my head around this rollout of Obamacare and how it has crashed and burned in such a rapid and dramatic fashion.My question is; why from day one was this an immediate disaster? How could so many so-called experts along with $600 million taxpayer dollars have created something so useless and worthless?With over three years to construct the website, why was it never means tested before it was presented?Why didn’t it work so easily and efficiently that everyone would praise it to the heavens?
Like I said, something stinks.Then it dawned on me that maybe my theory about the Obamacare failure had always been right on target.Months ago I spoke out on radio and television about how I thought this nightmare of a bill couldn’t possibly work and it was all just an exercise that would be so complicated and dysfunctional no one would want it.Once people became more angry and frustrated they would demand the government fix it, thus ushering in single payer. I was laughed at, thought of as a conspiracy theorist that just didn’t like Obama and wanted to see him fail.No, that wasn’t true.I had done research and listened carefully to Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Kathleen Sibelius and Rahm Emanuel when they said in their own words that the ultimate goal for health care in this country was single payer.
This first step, the screw-up with the website, is just the tip of the iceberg.This whole thing is a “bait and switch”.Very few people can access the website and those that do, have to sign up before they can shop for policy prices.This little tidbit came to light at the hearings last week when under oath one of the contractors said that HHS had demanded a change to the website two weeks before its launch.The change?Don’t allow people to shop and compare prices first; make them enroll before they can comparison shop.Once you are in the database, they’ve got you.
