Our Dear Leader decreed the other day that the EMPLOYER mandate in obamacare is postponed another year — the year AFTER the elections in November 2014.

Mustn’t let a little matter like this utter fiasco jeopardize the Democrats’ chances to retake the House…

On the other hand, the INDIVIDUAL mandate remains in place as scheduled, for January 2014.

Like I said, you mustn’t let a little matter like this utter fiasco jeopardize the Democrats’ chances to retake the House…

Think it through…

1. Those evil greedy fat cat rich Republican employers have another year to reduce head counts, reduce hours, convert employees from full time to part time, and cancel employer-paid insurance, in preparation for (in order to dodge) the requirement to provide insurance to their FULL TME employees.

At whom will the low information, short attention span voters be angry, just in time for the elections? At the Democrats for trying to help the people, or those evil greedy fat cat rich employers and therefore all Republicans?

2. Those evil greedy fat cat rich Republican insurance companies have another year to hike their premiums, in preparation for the huge costs of insuring everybody and doing away with pre-existing condition exceptions.

At whom will the low information, short attention span voters be angry, just in time for the elections? At the Democrats for trying to help the people, or those evil greedy fat cat rich insurers and therefore all Republicans?

And there is a BONUS…

When in 2015 it is clear to everybody that obamacare can’t possibly work, it can’t possibly fulfill any of its promises and peoples’ overblown expectations and predictions, then the Democrats will play the end card, their ace in the hole…

UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE

Forget mandates, forget premiums, forget exchanges, forget even the armies of new IRS, HHS and whatever else agents — “free” health care for everybody — and all you have to do is SOAK THE RICH, soak those evil greedy fat cat rich Republicans, AND…

Hillary wins in a landslide in 2016, vindicated after 2016-1993=23 years. Karl Marx wins in a landslide, vindicated after 2016-1848=168 years.

Before you think I have gone totally insane, let me remind you that obamacare was never intended to succeed. It was always intended to demonstrate that any involvement of the private sector in health care cannot and will not work, that the answer is universal, government-run health care — Medicare, medicaid, the emergency room, sick call, the post clinic, and the VA for everybody…!!!

Before you think I have gone totally insane, let me remind you that this formula had worked in every country where it was tried — in the very same countries, in the very same gene pool, from which our forebears had immigrated to America.

It is not I who have gone insane. Establishment “Republicans” are trained like Pavlov’s dogs to respond with “me, too, but slower” to any Progressive proposal to take another step down the road to socialism, as they had done since the days of Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. They have been content being relegated to permanent minority status, hiding out in their country clubs, feeling superior to the rabble, and  occasionally called in as the competent managers to clean up the mess the ideologues had made on their march to socialism. That is over a hundred years of addictive behavior that they just can’t grow out of. That is over a hundred years of a mind set that is impenetrable to the values of our founding. That is over a hundred years of betraying a core constituency of small businessmen, the self-employed, the entrepreneur, the skilled and the professional employees with pride in their work, pride in themselves and pride in their country. That is over a hundred years of the establishment Democrats and Republicans playing both sides against the middle. That is over a hundred years of deliberately cultivated race and class warfare, the purpose of which is to destroy the world’s only middle class country founded on middle class values of individual freedom, effort, achievement and merit, and turn it into just another old world / third world aristocracy / oligarchy / plutocracy / cleptocracy stratified by race and class. The name of the game is not even money, it’s power; power to set the terms of everybody else’s life down to the minutest detail, power to impose regulations that apply to everybody else, except those who make the rules.

And so it is that the party that screamed about the “imperial presidency” of Nixon or Bush utters not a peep when their guy issues decrees openly defying one law after another, defying Congress, defying even his own party in Congress and ignoring the laws they passed, laws he wanted, laws he signed. After all, if it’s my law, I can decide if and when to enforce it, right?

As Louis the Fourteenth had said, “La Loi, C’Est Moi” — the law, that’s me. Yea, here in America, in the year of our Lord 2013.
