Why Obama Will Not Fight 10th Amendment Legislation Passed By States

My recent post Be Gone Obamacare. You Have No Power Here requires a bit of followup.

Obama and the progressive Socialists want the States to allow their citizens to decline to purchase Health Care.

Confused? Here is why that is a true statement.

Obama does not want these millions of uninsured people to buy insurance from private insurers. He is happy to see 35 states battle the Federal Government with legislation that he will never challenge.

The only reason the mandatory purchase section exists was to bribe the Insurance Companies. Give them several million additional healthy insured in their risk pool and they will do well. Pre-existing – no problem. Paying more to make up for the pittance doctors are paid by Medicare and Medicaid? Cool!

Insurance Companies will have more to invest and a lower risk pool. And much larger profits.

Insurers know this. Obama knows this.

So, what’s the deal? Obama says Insurance Companies are evil. I pay them lots of money, and I think he is right! They are getting rich with their greedy policies. Why would Obama let them make even more money?

Well, in a word, to shut them up. He can call them anything he wants, as long as they force healthy people to buy their product. So, they are running no ads to defend themselves from the criticism being leveled by Obama, Pelosi and Reid. They are doing exactly what Obama wants them to do.

But remember. Obama, Pelosi and Reid all favor a complete takeover of our Health Care by the government. The ultimate Socialist goal. And there can be no doubt that they are willing to do anything to reach that goal.

But the real target is the Insurance Companies. Never forget that.

Temporarily taking them out of the financial cross-hairs is an acceptable sacrifice in the short term.

But this 10th Amendment movement plays right into Obama’s hands. For now, the Insurance Companies are silent. No TV ads. No newspaper ads. Silence. They like Obama’s plan.

So, when the bill passes and Virginian’s declare themselves exempt, along with most other states, why would Obama fight this? The Insurance Companies will scream foul as their promised windfalls fail to materialize, yet they are stuck with higher claims payouts because of the mandates they are now quietly accepting.

So, Insurance Companies will be required to raise premiums to cover the claims and the people will demand the government do something.

What else can a poor, caring progressive Socialist do except pass a Public Option with broad bipartisan support, as Republicans will have no choice but to support it.

And the Public Option becomes Single Payer as Private Insurers are put out of business.

    Why do you hate America?

    Interesting View. If true, It’s a brilliant Strategy. I do believe, however, that you are wrong that the Conservatives will role and vote for a Public Option. The people of America are smarter than that and can see through bull. Note – I do strongly agree with “Reform” however, forcing everyone to have insurance will not do it. If that were true, forcing everyone to have auto insurance would reform traffic problems. You see, reform can only come through comprehensive “process improvement” within our government – not paying for healthcare.

  3. Tom: That is an interesting take on the insurance issue.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
