Saving Obamacare: An Exit Strategy?



Political Cartoon by Michael Ramirez

Charles Krauthammer in today’s Washington Post outlines the only exit strategy for Obamacare.
This scheme is the ultimate bait-and-switch. The pleasure comes now, the pain later. Government-subsidized universal and virtually unlimited coverage will vastly compound already out-of-control government spending on health care. The financial and budgetary consequences will be catastrophic.

However, they will not appear immediately. And when they do, the only solution will be rationing. That’s when the liberals will give the FCCCER regulatory power and give you end-of-life counseling.

But by then, resistance will be feeble. Why? Because at that point the only remaining option will be to give up the benefits we will have become accustomed to. Once granted, guaranteed universal health care is not relinquished. Look at Canada. Look at Britain. They got hooked; now they ration. So will we.

Of course, Dr. Krauthammer is being facetious.

The GOP should just KILL Obamacare and move on to winning the War on Terror, improving the economy and managing the millions of illegal immigrants.
