There has been all kinds of media attention focused on Obamacare’s failure to launch in recent weeks. But most of the mainstream analysis draws the wrong conclusion.
Most have focused on the cost of the website and all of its bugs. They’ve called for the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, as if replacing her with somebody more competent will lead to a better, smoother running Obamacare system.
This isn’t about having the wrong people in charge. What you see is what you get!
Imagine for a moment you’re visiting a business for the first time.
From the outside, it looks impressive. A beautifully painted sign invites you to buy the company’s product. The windows are clean and new paint glistens on the walls. But as you try to enter, the handle snaps off in your hand and the heavy door nearly takes off your big toe as it slams shut. After you manage to work door open, you walk in to find paint peeling off the walls, dust coating the floor and no sign of life behind a dirty, dilapidated counter. When a clerk finally saunters out, he’s wearing dirty, ragged clothes and treats you rudely.
Now tell me: how much faith would you have in this company to deliver a quality product?
This is pretty much what we got with the Obamacare rollout. Healthcare.gov looked nice. It featured a snazzy splash page. But it didn’t work. This website serves as the front door into the world of Obamacare, and the handle broke off in our hand.
What does that say about the product the feds will ultimately deliver?
This shouldn’t shock anybody. This is exactly what you get with centralized systems.
And there is plenty more to come.
The federal government is trying to micromanage health insurance for more than 300 million people. Lawmakers stuffed the 900-plus page bill with mandates, regulations and fees. The law creates a massive bureaucracy to implement and manage the system. Anybody who has ever dealt with a government bureaucracy knows this isn’t going to go well. It’s your DMV experience on steroids. On top of that, Obamacare empowers unaccountable federal employees to interpret the law and create new rules to power its implementation. They are basically making it up as they go along.
So, what do you get with centralized systems?
Rising prices. Shortages. Inferior quality. A lack of customer service. Diminishing choices. We saw the ultimate government centralization endgame in Venezuela last week – armed soldiers storming into businesses to enforce government price controls.
It’s not too late to stop Obamacare. But we can’t count on Congress to repeal or defund. We don’t have time to wait until the next election cycle to installs some new bums. And we’ve already seen the failure of the courts. But if states refuse to implement Obamacare and actively work to thwart the program, we can take the foundation right out from under it
