Debt ceiling deal might sink the anchor sinking the economy

by editor on August 7, 2011

We’ve all heard how the universally-despised debt ceiling deal did absolutely nothing but that may be incorrect. An unexpected benefit may emerge: the death of Obamacare.

It would be a delicious irony, as Hercule Poirot said in “Murder on the Orient Express”, if “…a repulsive murderer has himself been repulsively, and, perhaps deservedly, murdered.” In our case, the murderer is Obama’s signature economy-killing achievement.

obamacare-economyPolitico relays the rumors:

The debt ceiling agreement could jeopardize millions of dollars, and perhaps billions, in initiatives from President Barack Obama’s health care reform law if the super committee can’t come up with required spending cuts.

Many of the pots of money in the law — one of the Democrats’ most prized pieces of legislation — could get trimmed by the debt deal’s sequestration, or triggered cuts.

ObamaCare is a “booby prize” being it was created by a bunch of boobs. It’s authors remind us of the dopey kid who ran to his mom with a handful of crap yelling, “Ma, look what the dog just did!”

“There are at least 15 provisions of the Obama health care law that will find themselves subject to this trigger if the committee is not able to come up with other cuts,” said Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.).

Death by a thousand cuts? Great, make that piece of crap suffer.

The fact that the programs are vulnerable at all means Obama and congressional Democrats did not succeed in their attempts to shield the health reform law from the debt-deal trigger.

Just another thing the a-holes didn’t read. That’s a shame. A real shame.

Once again, eliminate the lack of competition in health insurance by allowing companies to offer insurance across state lines, and watch the cost go down, the number of insured go up, and Obamacare wither on the vine.

As much as most of us here would wish for this , its not likely. In most of our lifetimes , there is hardly a power that once the State has taken , it has returned. There will be a supreme court case that will be heard , that will rule , most if not all , of these possible cuts as unconstitutional.

Rome is burning , me thinks. Sadly , very sadly , its much later than you might think .

It isn’t affordable and the House can starve it to death…..I hope.

Note to the shrill left: Just because Obamacare is a steaming pile of legislative poop, that does not mean that thinking human beings do not disagree that reform is not needed to fix the health insurance/care industry. It is just that this partisan Marxist drain on the economy is not and never will be the solution.

I always remember during the Cold War, the story was no country that went communist ever returned to the living. Communism was the political black hole that, once it gobbled your country up, that was it. Then, in 1989, the whole stupid system fell apart and everybody was sprung.

That may be the paradigm here. These whine and cheese-eating progressive nannies are not willing to let one piece of their precious Euro-style “social democracy” go. That attitude may be what guarantees that the whole damn thing is going to go, quicker than anyone can say “Obama is incompetent.”
