“Obamacare” is a law. It is not a health plan. It is not an insurance option. You can’t “sign up for it” or “be covered” by it. When you go to the national health care website or state exchanges, you are offering to buy a health insurance policy from a private insurance company. That company (for instance Blue Cross) then covers you. you didn’t “sign up for Obamacare”. You signed up for Blue Cross.
If in that process the web site tells you that you are eligible for a subsidy or for Medicaid, you STILL did not sign up for or get “Obamacare”. You still either got Blue Cross and an assistance check from the government to help pay for it, OR you got Medicaid and are covered by that.
If you get sick or injured and need medical treatment, there is no Obamacare hospital, doctor, nurse, clinic, pharmacy, drug manufacturer or Xray machines that can treat you. And good luck finding one if the Omabacare law puts all the existing ones out of business or makes going to them unaffordable. That’s what laws do. They choke off productivity and limit options. Regulations kill businesses, not create them. They add to the cost of doing business. So, the way we used to do business + regulation = more expensive way of doing business. ALWAYS.
Obamacare is never going to collapse under it’s own weight. The powers that be will do anything they need to to keep it in place until it can be replaced by what they really want: Full control. There is no such thing as a government program that collapses under it’s own weight so long as that government survives. Waiting for it to collapse is the cowardly way to avoid confrontation. Republican lawmakers need to earn their pay and kill this law and remove that yoke from the necks of Americans. Waiting for it to collapse is every bit as much a fraud as “needing to pass it to see what’s in it”.
