Hi! Are you a representative of the insurance industry? READ THIS. #obamacare

Anyway, this is Ace of Spades HQ’s response to Blue Cross/Blue Shield’s recent bout of fearmongering.  Basically, the insurance industry is anticipating a bailout if they lose too much money over Obamacare, which is what they are on track to do – and the insurers are even now suggesting that if there isn’t a bailout then single-payer is right around the corner.

They’re saying this to spook us so that we will agree to pay them off and make them whole over the corrupt, and now unprofitable, bargain they struck with Obama.

I say we roll the dice.

…that is going to be a very popular sentiment among Republican voters and pundits. Right now a de facto bailout is baked into the Obamacare cake – but it will not be popular when (not ‘if’) it gets invoked, and I for one didn’t sign off on the original shakedown agreement between the Democratic party and the insurance industry.  Besides, the Democratic party will be no more competent at getting single-payer implemented than it has been at any other facet of the Obamacare debacle.

I certainly hope that the above attitude scares insurers and the Left.  It is meant to.  Those people need to start taking this situation seriously.

    Obamacare is not a “cake”. It’s a muffin — a meadow muffin. And the insurers can pound sand.

    Mussolini’s definition of fascism was a socialist government, big business, and unions working together with government calling the shots. This is Obama’s version, and the insurance companies have been playing along. Screw them.

    Definitely roll the dice.

    The so-called “insurance” companies have been legislated so far off their original moorings* – I say roll the dice and let’s see if we can put this back to the moorings it belongs at.

    * Think about the difference between health insurance and some other common insurances…
    Health insurance:
    – restrictions on what doctors you can see (“networks”)
    – restrictions on what medicines you can get (“schedules”, “generic equivalent”)
    .
    Car insurance:
    – you pick your body shop (insurance can recommend but not decide for you)
    – Body shop will fix using materials you agree to (insurance may limit what they will pay but the body shop works for you)
    .
    Homeowners insurance:
    – Have a burst pipe, they pay *you*.
    .
    What the hell happened? *GOVERNMENT*
