There is a very real possibility that there will only be a fraction of the required people sign up for healthcare through the Obamacare exchanges by the March 31st deadline. What does that mean? Well basically the whole system will collapse and there is a very short but excellent article at Marketplace that lays out the possible end game.
Do yourself a favor and read the short article – It’s not pretty.
What do you think the Leftists will do when they realize Obamacare is on the verge of collapse because there aren’t enough young, healthy people pumping money into the system? The logical move would be to stop the bleeding, repeal the law and admit defeat but that is not in the DNA of Team Obama. Instead, they’ll go looking for more revenue to keep the system solvent at least through the mid-term elections. And how do you think they’ll get that extra revenue? That’s right, they’ll ask us to do our patriotic duty and pay our fair share.
