Tsk tsk, American youth, you’re not following the Zeus of our time. Here it is. We’ve finally reached a point where the purpose of the Obamacare opt-out fee is explained. For the longest time, I thought the fee was simply a punishment for those who stood against Obamacare. But now, I understand that it is much more pragmatic.
For Obamacare to work—well, for a while, prior to its inevitable failure—it must have money. That’s obvious enough. But where does that money come from? Those who are too poor, or have extensive health problems are the ones who will require the most of the system. They will siphon all the money out of Obamacare until there is nothing left. The obvious solution is in those who require little care: the youth.
For Obamacare to work at all, young people must all buy in. Obama is relying on stupid young people–most of whom voted for him–to fund his bloated healthcare law. But something is happening. The youth are actually waking up. Unfortunately, it took actual dollar signs to make them see that Obama is a hack, and that his socialist medical law is dangerous. Now that people in their 20’s have become reluctant to join the utopian plan, Obama’s little fee is coming into play. Obama is desperately hoping that the fee will force young people to buy into Obamacare. If it doesn’t, he’s screwed. So, in an effort to make the fee seem much more terrible than it actually is, Obama has taken to shaming. Appearing on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, Obama said:
“If you can afford it–you just decide you don’t want to get it because your attitude is ‘nothing’s ever going to happen to me’–then you’ll be charged a penalty.”
Ouch. Obama’s basically scolding the youth of America into doing what he wants them to do. The fee is, in fact, a control mechanism. Obama knew that at some point, his scheme would be revealed, so he needed a failsafe.
There, that seemed like a good explanation, right? Nope. I think this goes much deeper. The fail safe isn’t good enough. It’s not enough money to keep his law going.
Why would Obama create a failsafe that wasn’t effective enough to get the job done? Additionally, why is he resorting to such a lame tactic, essentially tsk tsking young people? Because Obamacare is meant to fail. He wants to show the American people that, to truly succeed, one needs a single payer system. That’s the only reason he would behave in this way. He is smart enough to know what he is doing. He is creating an environment that will lead to a collapse of his signature law, so that a new, more socialist creation can emerge. It’s an aggregation, and consolidation of power.
The awakening of America is just another part of a long con.
