It’s not a good time for ObamaCare.
Aetna pulled out of most of the exchanges last year. Humana has announced that it will leave the exchanges at the end of the year. Aetna’s CEO is talking death spiral. And the IRS will no longer care about your health insurance.
Even before the next step on ObamaCare takes place, it’s dying.
And that makes sense. The White House and Congress are opposed to ObamaCare. Whatever the next step is, it’s not going to be good news for ObamaCare. But much of this was going to happen anyway.
ObamaCare was always meant to fail. The difference is that Obama Inc. meant it to fail so that it could be replaced with full socialized medicine. However, Trump is kicking the legs out from ObamaCare to make killing it easier. It’s a similar tactic to the one that Obama and Hillary would have used. But that is instead being used to take out ObamaCare.
The Cloward-Piven planned obsolescence is no longer being used a gateway drug to single-payer but to making ObamaCare obsolete.
