I’m definitely in the Let-It-Burn camp with most current political/fiscal issues and feel that we’ve reached the point where Low Information Voters and Leftists have to learn the lesson the hard way that their policies only lead to ruin but with Obamacare I fear this tactic will not work.
It is quite tempting to hope that allowing the full force of Obamacare to kick in and eliminating sweet heart waivers will show people how ridiculous this law is and will lead them to reject Obamacare and Liberal philosophy en mass.
But hope is not a strategy and the regulations for Obamacare are so huge that I fear every day we allow this law to exist in its current form will make it more difficult to undo.
Every step we take down this Obamacare version of the Bataan Death March will move us closer to the UK’s National Health System (NHS) and just look at how well that is working.
The Medical Device Tax is already hurting businesses, causing layoffs and stifling innovation and thiis will only get worse. Innovation is not something you can turn back on quickly and every year we de-incentivize companies to take risk in developing medical devices means many more years before we can restart that new product pipeline.
And once Obamacare’s failure is known to all do we really think the State Run Media will put the blame on Obama and Liberals? Of course not. They’ll make up some narrative about how it’s failing due to Republican propaganda or lack of increased requests for more funding.
I can appreciate the logic with the Let-It-Burn strategy but I don’t think this will work with Obamacare. We need to kill it any way we can and right now the only approach is death by 1,000 cuts. Kill this law a little at a time until the funding is gone and we starve the beast.
