Obamacare unfolded before the country on shaky ground and as we approach the December 23rd deadline for purchase of new coverage, that shaky ground is rumbling in earthquake fashion. The law continues to be a nightmare for the administration and the country.
On an interesting note, this was a law passed by Congress, signed into law by the President and as we approach the most important due date, this law is still in need of desperate measures in order to salvage and sell it to a public that is completely turned off by it.
Recall to mind, this law, originally, specifically targeted the youth of the country. They were suppose to be the back bone of this socialized health care. But under the law, this group was placed on health care policies of their parents. The ground under the law started shaking steadily immediately.
When those tremors became a reality to the administration, over the Thanksgiving holidays, they encouraged families through word of mouth and ads to have the talk of signing up around the dinner table, which only served to have those tremors register as a potential threat.
It didn’t help matters when the President won the ‘Lie of the Year Award’ over the famous, ‘if you like your doctor, or your health care plan, you can keep them.'
It was back to drawing tables for the administration and after a short discussion decided to enlist the help of the First lady, who is promoting families, offering up a different kind of Christmas present, ‘a family discussion on health insurance.’
To continue to completely ignore the impending earthquake under Obamacare, the President has changed the law, on his own, again. For those who lost their health care plans, they will now be offered ‘bare-bones policies,’ which according to the industry would cause, ‘tremendous instability.’
Also over the Christmas holidays there will be ads promoting the health care law as a direct benefit to the gay community, who, when in a same sex marriage, in a number of states are not covered.
As the earthquake under Obamacare continues to create seismic waves across the country, it's magnitude as far as the scale of disappointments on behalf of the administration, as well as the country, is yet to be measured.
