Obamacare, The Big Health Insurance Company Gimme

Posted on: June 4, 2013

When you examine Obamacare, it really is nothing more than a big Health Insurance company gimme. When before you didn’t have to have health insurance, now you will (good for Health Insurance Companies), or you will be fined by The I.R.S. no less, that agency known for targeting conservatives.

The only provisions in Obamacare that are worth any salt are the “No Pre-Existing Conditions” clause and the provision allowing children to stay on their parent’s health insurance plan. But that is not socialized medicine, it is health care regulation, big difference.

Not that I favor socialized medicine or privatized medicine, but I think it helps to clarify a thoroughly muddled discussion to understand that the most substantially socialized, big-government portion of the law is that The I.R.S. will be enforcing compliance. Otherwise, “private,” not big government, but private health insurance companies are the largest beneficiaries of Obamacare. Because now everyone will have to buy private health insurance if they don’t already have it.
