"Prepare yourself for the second wave of people who choose to just walk away from the costs of freely-made choices." American Thinker
Below is a great article that lays out quite clearly what is happening and will happen to our nation's insurance and healthcare systems as a result of the disaster called Obamacare.
I'll call it: "When Ideology Meets Reality" or "Progressivism Is A Form of Mental Illness"
A long time ago I compared Obamacare to the mortgage and financial markets catastrophe that resulted when the government interfered in the sound mortgage underwriting process. Simply you can not violate the Law of Large Numbers or the Laws of Human Nature without bad things happening. People like to call the disastrous outcomes "Unintended Consequences". They may be unintended but they are easily predicted.
There are literally millions of parts and pieces that comprise the insurance and health care systems that provide coverage and care for hundreds of millions of people. All of those millions of parts, pieces, systems and people interact continuously in ways that the "Central Planners" can never understand. That is why you will NEVER write the laws and regulations to orchestrate the symphony of interaction that plays 24/7/365 in the dynamics of a continuously changing marketplace.
It is a form of mental illness to believe that you can CONTROL the "Self Organizing Systems" of the Free Markets. If you doubt that, look at the results of the Central Planners and the outcomes they produced in the former Soviet Union, USSR.
Building multiple and ever larger government agencies to try to exercise control results in extraordinary levels of waste and inefficiency. The resources used to build and feed the government systems are drawn from the FINITE RESOURCES available to provide the real coverage and care. That is why we are now hearing the stories of the horrific increased costs of Obamacare for lesser quality products.
The exact same things can be said about the federal government's attempt to control the education system through the implementation of Common Core through the US Department of Education. It is the same form of mental illness on the part of the "Central Planners" and their arrogant belief that they have "The Answers" and that they can impose their will to tell others how to live their lives. Think Michael Bloomberg and his attempts to tell people what size soft drinks they can buy. The practice of Progressivism is a form of mental illness plain and simple.
