Lost in all the irrelevant chatter in the blogosphere and other non-accredited publications about the failures of the Obamacare “website” is an understanding of the larger picture. Is it wise to condemn a socially progressive forward thinking program because of minutiae like not being able to log on to a website. The real benefit of Obamacare is that it will finally bring a civilizing influence to the primitive dog-eat-dog society we live in.
Our wise leaders have wisely focused on the big picture and our dreams of unicorns and rainbows instead of getting caught up with low-level work like reading or writing the legislation. That is work more appropriate to the healthcare lobbyists that have their fingers on the pulse of our nation.
The main civilizing influence of Obamacare is to spread out costs in a fair manner that negates the disadvantages of what sex you were born with and whether you had pre-existing conditions. If you are a man, it’s time to suck it up and pay for medical care that you will never need such as maternity care, abortion and birth control pills. It was just pure luck that you were born that way and you must stop whining. Women must not be asked to pay more even though they use more health services. Get with the new form of feminism or get left behind and laughed at. If you’re libertarian, a piece of advice: Don’t ever mention your opinions in civilized conversation or if you’re trying to get laid.
If you are an insurance company, you have the privilege of operating in our great nation, so you must take $100 a month premiums and cover $1 million procedures. Don’t whine that insurance is meant to cover events that haven’t already occurred. Most Americans aren’t interested in your legal mumbo-jumbo. You can reduce your CEO’s salary by $1 million for every such deserving patient can’t you. Stop being greedy.
This brings me to Doctors : You with your Ferraris and multi-million dollar pay cheques. If the reports that you are cutting back on work and not participating in this great health experiment are true, I’m truly ashamed of you. You spent years in Medical school and racked up 100s of thousands of dollars of education expenses for the privilege of serving the needy. Their needs and wants are your calling to service. Shirking your duties is akin to treason and I can only hope that one day you are forced into mandatory labor or face the fate of other traitors like Bradley Manning.
We must all come together if we want to make this nation truly great. Pay your taxes. People far wiser than you have decided what the level of taxes should be. Trust in their judgement. You are part of this great society whether you like it or not. You must respect the will of the majority even if it takes away the most basic of your rights. This is the essence of the most sophisticated political system ever devised, Democracy. Abide by it’s rules or get branded, deservedly, as a right wing terrorist. The majority, educated in our world class public schools, have arrived at their conclusions unburdened by Logic, Math, History, Economics or Empirical analysis. Is this something you are capable of? It takes a special and I do mean special form of talent to arrive at thoughts and conclusions carefully constructed by optimism, hope, fear and an analysis of carefully curated content put out by high quality news networks like MSNBC, CNN and Fox News. Respect the will of the majority and let us move forward to a glorious future.
