You Know Things are Really Bad for Obamacare...

...when Obamacare apologist Paul Krugman writes:
Obamacare Hits a Bump

More than two and a half years have gone by since the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, went fully into effect. Most of the news about health reform since then has been good, defying the dire predictions of right-wing doomsayers. But this week has brought some genuine bad news: The giant insurer Aetna announced that it would be pulling out of many of the “exchanges,” the special insurance markets the law established.

This doesn’t mean that the reform is about to collapse. But some real problems are cropping up.
 Krugman then goes into propaganda mode, but that he can't even ignore the collapse of Obamacare, as much as he would like to, provides a very good indication of how bad things really are.



  1. What Krugman has unconsciously admitted is that "rightwing doomsayers" (aka: anyone who cares to do the math) have better forecasting abilities than he does.

  2. Obamacare does not work because corporate medicine and doctors can charge anything they want for medical care. 10 times the average of European systems.

  3. "The Titanic Hits a Bump"

    "Four days have gone by since the great ship set sail, and the passage has been smooth, defying the reports of floating ice by seaborne doom-sayers. But this evening has brought some genuine bad news: a crashing noise has been heard from the starboard side of the ship, and the captain has steered slightly off course.

    "This doesn't mean that the ship is about to sink! Ha ha ha! But some real problems are cropping up, as passengers confront the possibility of a somewhat delayed arrival."

    1. The gov't will have to step in and "save" ACA from these merciless, vile market forces that would destroy any plan for cheaper or free medical care. Of course this latest situation will work to the benefit of gov't involvement with this.
