The mess that is Obama’s federally-funded health plan has been a disaster from day one.
From the very beginning people were confused over what it was supposed to fix. Many couldn’t understand how a law that forced you to buy health insurance was supposed to make it cheaper and easier to get.
It’s only been two years since the bulk of Obamacare was put into effect and it’s already floundering. After a disastrous launch and a broken website, we are beginning to see how this complicated, confusing, and ultimately pointless piece of legislation is making American health care worse.
Now it looks like there won’t be much to it in a matter of months.
From The Political Insider:
Enrollment in the insurance exchanges for President Obama’s signature health-care law is at less than half the initial forecast, pushing several major insurance companies to stop offering health plans in certain markets because of significant financial losses.
As a result, the administration’s promise of a menu of health-plan choices has been replaced by a grim, though preliminary, forecast: Next year, more than 1 in 4 counties are at risk of having a single insurer on its exchange, said Cynthia Cox, who studies health reform for the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The slogan of “more options at lower prices,” was never fulfilled. In fact many major health providers pulled out immediately, to avoid massive losses. The reality is Obamacare makes it impossible for medical professionals, insurance providers, and citizens to get what they need. It is a toxic system that few people want to be a part of.
In time it will fall apart, leaving us with the very imperfect system we had in the first place. Only with a few years of pain and misery to show for it.
