While many Americans are waiting to hear the Supreme Court’s ruling on ObamaCare, the Department of Health and Human Services, under Kathleen Sebelius, is operating under the philosophy that if it can roll out as much of the overreaching health law as possible before the high court’s decision, so many Americans will become addicted to it and not want to live without it. In that case, the Supreme Court, if it rules that the law is unconstitutional, and the Republicans, simply because they say they want to repeal the law, will look like big meanies when the law is eradicated. This is the Democrats’ election year strategy at a time when the president’s signature health care law is on the chopping block.
For those whose attention has been diverted away from ObamaCare of late, recall that a main outcome of the law is that private health care insurance will be so expensive that employers will no longer be able to afford to offer benefits to employees. In addition, the cost for individual, private health care insurance will be even more prohibitive than it is now. So, how will everyone receive health care?
