Obamacare is a major success

CHARLOTTENovember 5, 2013 – A popular e-mail currently circulating is supposed to be the words of Wayne Allyn Root who authored a book in April of this year titled The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide.

Like so much information that finds its way to the internet, the e-mail may or may not actually be attributable to Root, but either way, the content provides plenty to think about.

While the media continues its multitude of daily reports on the Obamacare fiasco, the e-mail counters words like “botched”, “trainwreck” and “failed” by claiming the Affordable Care Act is a rousing success.

In other words, the American people and the press have been duped twice; first by allowing Obamacare to be enacted into law and second because it was never designed to work in the first place. According to the premise of the e-mail, the resulting chaos over the myriad of internal problems with getting Barack Obama’s signature policy enacted is no accident. Rather it claims to be a diversion that creates a preoccupation with all the glitches while the true agenda is perfected to produce the failure that is actually desired.

During the presidential campaign in 2008 one of the most reported stories was a rope-line encounter between Obama and a man known as Joe the Plumber. When Joe asked the candidate a question, Obama responded with his philosophical belief about the redistribution of wealth. From that point on the president has never made any secret about his “Robin Hood” goal of taking from the rich and giving to the poor.

As the healthcare rollout has unfolded, that aspect of Barack Obama’s agenda has expanded to the degree that it now appears there is a larger purpose beyond simply asking the wealthiest citizens to pay “jut a little bit more.”

Mr. Obama has been in office for nearly five years during which time the economy continues a snail-like recovery. Many jobs are being reduced to part-time hours as a result of the cost for employers to provide healthcare. Insurance rates and/or policy deductibles or both are increasing for many people to the extent that the Affordable Care Act is becoming “unaffordable.”

None of this is a big surprise. We were warned. Some paid attention. Many did not. The concept of “free” medical coverage sounded great until it was no longer free. Perhaps the degree of the problems were not anticipated, but there was never a lack of discussion about the overall negative validity of the program.

Today, the president backtracks now and then about his misleading rhetoric and claims he didn’t say what he clearly said time and again. It hardly matters now. Obamacare is the law and, like the e-mail says, it is accomplishing precisely what it is supposed to accomplish.

The longer the “trainwreck” debate continues, the better the administration likes it because that represents more time to get his policies further entrenched beyond repair.

Supposedly the enrollment system will be fixed by the end of November. Why should that statement be any different than any other lie the White House has presented? Even if it could be fixed, it will not be corrected because it’s not supposed to be.

Expert after expert has said the only way to solve the problem with the website is to start from scratch. Why should that be any different than putting a patch on a hole in a pair of pants. Everyone knows such a “fix” is never as good as the original. Rewriting the computer program for Obamacare is nothing more than a delaying tactic to institute the true purpose of Obama’s policies.

Upper middle class and middle class citizens are now being required to pay double or triple for their healthcare while also paying for 40 million other uninsured Americans. How does that result in prosperity?

How many more millions of Americans will become dependent upon the government when the Obamacare debacle reaches its peak? Force people to rely on government and the power of the office of the president, and his party, increases incrementally because there is no other choice but to comply.

The Obama administration knows precisely what it is doing. It is creating havoc in one place so it can establish even greater turmoil elsewhere. Then whenever necessary, the president makes a speech or sends one of his accomplices out to divert attention. Whether it is a simple misstatement or a bold-faced lie is of no significance. Distraction is the primary strategy while the Big Brother machine grinds along elsewhere with its subversive objectives.

Obamacare is, indeed, a fiasco and a debacle. What it is not however, is a trainwreck or a failure. That is the way it is intended to work.
