A follow-up to yesterday's post on the plummeting credulousness of the American public about Obama.
Do you really think that the government that runs the NSA which day and night gathers intimate data on 300 million Americans and eavesdrops on heads of state around the world, a government that commands the world's most powerful military, and rigged the last election by brilliantly suppressing the opposition with IRS and FEC witch-hunts really can't design a website?
Obamacare is not a failure. It is a remarkable success. It will be even more wildly successful in the years to come.
Obamacare was designed to blow the American healthcare system to smithereens. It was designed to bestow chaos and confusion and collapse. It was designed to demolish our current largely private system of healthcare and replace it with a single-payer federal system. Such has been the dream of statists for generations. Government control of healthcare-- complete control-- is a massive advance of government power, and an electoral elixir to the party of government.
The problem that Democrats faced in 2009 is that while they controlled the federal executive and legislature (and courts), they still couldn't get federal single-payer passed. So they chose the next-best alternative-- demolish the current mostly private system so that federal single payer is the only option.
It's Cloward-Piven, applied to healthcare. Obama is an old ACORN lawyer, and he took this in with his mother's milk. ACORN was created to implement Cloward-Piven (from former Leftist David Horowitz):
[T]he Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism [and implement socialism] by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.The Obamacare roll-out has been a rousing success. It will succeed finally when Americans, horrified and repulsed by a shattered healthcare system, demand decisive federal action. And the feds oh-so-reluctantly will comply, after much hand-wringing and regret, with federal single-payer.
The crisis is proceeding as planned, thank you. Only a crisis can bring about federal control of healthcare. And a crisis will bring it. Americans-- thrown off their existing plans by the tens of millions and bankrupted by exploding premiums-- will demand Healthcare Homeland Security.
