For some completely unknown reason, the Republican-led House of Representatives has passed the “Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013.” I say for unknown reasons because the President has already threatened to veto any such legislation that succeeds in pointing out his unquestionable incompetence.
Aside from that, why interfere with your enemy when he is in the midst of destroying himself? A wise man once said this on Twitter.
Republicans are very, very good a not acting when they should act, and acting when they should sit. In this case, the President is 100% responsible for creating this nightmare scenario for millions of Americans. Let him deal with it. Do not offer to “fix” a problem you did not create.
Beyond that, Obamacare cannot be fixed in the sense that you can make it achieve any of these objectives:
- Provide quality care
- Increase insurance competition driving down costs
- Give consumers more options
The law was never designed to achieve any of those goals, quite the opposite in fact. Therefore, the talk of fixing this piece of trash needs to change to trashing this piece of trash.
There is nothing to be fixed, there is only something to be repealed and replaced with a free enterprise, consumer-driven health insurance market. Anything other than that is a failure of elected politicians to hold true to constitutional principles and act in the best interest of we the people.
