Why liars for ObamaCare will be in trouble in 2016
Politico.com's lead story at the moment is about how 2016 presidential candidates will lie for ObamaCare or spin their wheels promising to repeal it, which will be impossible because it may have imploded by then and Democrats will always have enough political power to block a total repeal. Here's why I think Obama/Clinton Democrats will have a tough time defending ObamaCare in 2016 and maybe even this year:
By 2016, 30% to 50% of ObamaCare enrollees will be paying all or most of their premiums without subsidies. They'll spend all of their disposable income on ObamaCare premiums for health insurance plans that mandate expensive and unwanted benefits. And they will be waiting in long lines for access to both primary and urgent care while being denied access to their preferred physicians, hospitals and other providers.
The HMO revolt of 2016 will be all the rage.
Republicans will promise to make premiums affordable and access to your doctor totally unobstructed by Washington's death panels and bureaucrats.
Since the people who will pay the most for health insurance that they are the least likely to need at the moment are the same people who are most likely to vote and become political activists, Democrats will have a very hard time lying for ObamaCare.
