Obamacare was designed to fail so that liberals would have an excuse to impose single-payer socialized medicine. However, because the topsy-turvey nature of the law was causing too much pain to insurance companies and favored groups the Obama people implemented numerous exclusions, exceptions and fixes to quiet the uproar.
Now, Republican cowards in congress are afraid to kill the Obamacare law outright, some for fear of public outcry, some afraid of media and Democrat criticism and others, presumably, because they actually like socialized medicine.
At this point the conservative Republicans don’t have enough votes to kill the law, but they can block the Republican alternative Obamacare Lite version. With an added wrinkle this is the right solution.
Block the Republican “alternative”, keep Obamacare alive and STRICTLY ENFORCE ALL provisions. the letter of the law. It’s a tactic used by labor unions — it is called Work to Rule. Make it so burdensome that the public will scream for its immediate removal. It shouldn’t take too long for Obamacare to self-destruct and for the public to recognize that its authors, the Democratic Party, are to blame for the chaos and pain. Then it can be killed by majority vote.
