Gov't watchdog: 'Obamacare is not a train wreck'

See also

A conservative government watchdog took his colleagues in the liberty movement by surprise when he declared today, "Obamacare is not a train wreck."

Andrew Koeppel stated that the GOP and others who oppose Obamacare need to stop referring to the new healthcare law as a train wreck.

At first glance Koeppel appears to be extolling the virtues of the Affordable Care Act that has proved to be a nightmare for most Americans, igniting their rage at Washington and Barack Obama in particular.

But Koeppel explains,

The GOP needs to stop calling ObamaCare a “trainwreck.” That means it’s a mistake, or accident. That means it’s a gigantic flop, or failure. It’s NOT.

This is a brilliant, cynical, and purposeful attempt to damage the U.S. economy, kill jobs, and bring down capitalism. It’s not a failure, it’s Obama’s grand success. It’s not a “train wreck.”

ObamaCare is a suicide attack.

He wants to hurt us, to bring us to our knees, to capitulate- so we agree under duress to accept big government. Obama’s hero and mentor was Saul Alinsky -- a radical Marxist intent on destroying capitalism. Alinksky’s stated advice was to call the other guy “a terrorist” to hide your own intentions. To scream that the other guy is “ruining America,” while you are the one actually plotting the destruction of America. To claim again and again…in every sentence of every speech…that you are “saving the middle class,” while you are busy wiping out the middle class.

Koeppel goes further to say that there are six underlying purposes that form the foundation of Obamacare:

-- Obamacare is intended to usher in the Marxist dream of redistribution of wealth.

-- Obamacare is intended to squeeze out the middle class, making most of them dependent on government.

-- Obamacare is intended to kick into high gear the Obama modus operandi of destroying good paying jobs with good benefits, replacing them with low-end jobs, many of which are parttime. The increasing burden of higher costs associated with healthcare under Obamacare will insure that the middle class cannot afford the premiums and deductibles, forcing them onto the Medicaid rolls.

-- Obamacare is intended to bankrupt small businesses which form the bulk of conservative support and which provide most of the jobs in America. Follow the money. Obama is not a big fan of small business but of big business, mega-corporations that work in tandem with progressives in government.

-- Obamacare is intended to vastly expand the size, scope, and power of IRS. Remember, the IRS knows all about your money and spending habits. This is the very agency that will be in charge of enforcing Obamacare through its penalty power.

-- Obamacare is intended to be a bonanza for labor unions. The unions will make out like bandits once all of the provisions of the healthcare law are in place. An estimated 15 million healthcare workers will be unionized, meaning that union coffers will be overflowing with funds they can then give to progressives/collectivists such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

And yet another factor in the mix that Koeppel did not mention is that Obamacare was intended to create a mess, intentionally. The reason? To appeal to disgruntled citizens to pressure Congress to wipe out insurance companies and state exchanges in order to implement a single-payer system where government is the owner/operator of healthcare and doctors are employees of the federal government.
