GOP's 2014 Hit Plan On ACA Site Will Flop


Recommended Posts

 

 

 

The last thing in the world that the GOP wants is for President Obama to fulfill his promise to get it right on the health care website glitch. That fawn hope has less to do with the GOP's relentless drive to torpedo the Affordable Care Act than the 2014 mid-term elections and the 2016 presidential elections. At the top of the high stakes political gambit is control of the Senate.

 

20 Democratic senators are up for reelection. Several of them are in states that are solid Red States. These senators are clearly vulnerable and they will be pounded through 2014 on one issue, and one issue only, and that's where they stand on Obamacare. The vulnerable Democratic senators in every case voted for the Affordable Care Act and have defended it and their vote to support it.

 

This has stirred nervous tremors among the at-risk Democrats. They have had some well-publicized meetings with Obama to get reassurance not only that the alleged computer mess will be fixed but that there will be no future screw-ups in any other aspect of the implementation of the health care plan that will give the GOP any more ammunition to slay their reelection efforts.

 

The at-risk Democrats didn't stop at seeking White House assurances that the health care rollout will be an ultimate success. They've tried to hedge their election bets by taking a pot shot or two at the various hitches in the health care law most especially Obama's oft stated pledge that no one would be forced to give up their insurance coverage and sign up for a mandated coverage plan. Obama bowed slightly to that complaint and said he would let insurance companies continue to offer plans that were slated to be cancelled. The aim was to damp down the furor that arose over the prospect of thousands of policies being cancelled.

 

Despite the Democrat's mild panic and Obama's momentary popularity plunge, the GOP's hit plan is no cinch to work. The computer glitches have been a major headache and a source of much public anger stoked feverishly by the GOP. But the less known fact is that thousands have searched and signed up for various health plans both online and through the state exchanges. Over time thousands more will sign up online.

 

The government subsidies to help pay for coverage are bankrolled to the tune of more than a half trillion dollars. This will slash the actual costs of the various plans offered on the exchanges by more than half for a family of four. Most of those who fall below the poverty line won't be affected by any of this since they'll be covered through a radically ramped up Medicaid coverage in most states that's paid for by the federal government.

 

Obama's current popularity numbers drop is meaningless. The 2014 elections are still almost a year away and a president's popularity numbers have always see sawed up and down depending on public mood and an issue of the moment that the public perceives a president has mishandled. Even if in a worst case scenario, Obama's approval numbers did not completely recover, this would likely not have much effect on local races since the sticking point issue would not be Obama but the perceived failure of the health care law.

 

This again is the problem for the GOP, the law will eventually work, and the thousands of persons that will have access to health care for the first time will be the breathing testaments to the success of the much maligned law. This would in effect take the issue off the table as an attack point for the GOP. And as always the public's memory for good and bad perceived policy missteps by an administration is never lasting.

 

At the height of public ire over the glitches and some aspects of the health care law, no poll showed that a majority of Americans ever wanted the law totally tossed. This is a huge counterweight to the GOP's cynical election ploy of making Obamacare its election meal ticket. Public support for the law is a strength that Democrats can use to their advantage.

 

The 2014 and 2016 elections will be decided on who the voters believe can handle the perennially dominant issues of the economy and national security best. These are the issues that the GOP has stumbled badly on in the past two elections. The chances are good that the next election will see more of the same for the GOP.

The word flop will be associated with the name obama for a long time.

Actually that will be your Achilles Heel for a long time to come. The final chapters of Obama's legacy are yet to be written, but many authors over time will be pointing out the Obama Derangement Syndrome of the right to younger generations in the future, and it won't be Obama's name dragged through the mud. Congratulations, you've just insured many new generations of those that will have nothing but contempt for conservative causes going forward. There are no examples of hatred and bigotry being viewed in a flattering light in any history book ever written. How does it feel knowing that your grandchildren, and great grandchildren will be viewing your camp in a less than a flattering light? I guess you do really hate Obama more than you love them. I would also ask how does it feel knowing that your grandchildren, and great grandchildren will be receiving their healthcare plans through either an Obamacare plan or a single payer system, given the fact that the old system will never see the light of day ever again? Now that's what you call a flop of epic proportions.

I doubt it.

 

The ACA doesn't need the GOP to make it fail.

Interesting statement. The samething was said about Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, The GI Bill, Food stamps, heating fuel assistance, etc.. How's the repeal agenda on those programs working out for you? I can assure you with absolute certainty your latest lame repeal agenda is going to work just as well.

those didn't have the record of failure obama's program does. even the dems are distancing themselves from it. i doubt it

will be repealed. but i bet the next whore ass president, who will be a republican, will modify it. and it will still be big gov healthcare...

...but just like with war and everything else...the sides switch when the letter behind the name changes. i mean...look at you alls

dumb asses supporting a mitt romney gop healthcare plan. look at you dumb asses supporting the war on terror and the patriot

act because obama is CIC. you're a f**king dumb ass. and so are the conservatives who switch POVs in the exact same way as your

dumb ass did.

I'd like to first point out that those programs are pretty much on a path to being bankrupt. second point I'd like to make is OSAMACARE is much more complex as 100 times more Americans have lost their coverage due to Obamacare and another 80 million expected to lose their insurance that their happy with and be forced to pay more for worse coverage...............But we know that's what you communist lazy lowlifes want. well i got news for you screwy, THIS BILL IS DESTINED TO DIE IN 2015 along with the progressive movement.

 

AT THE END OF THE DAY OBAMA REALLY IS THE MVP FOR THE CONSERVATIVE :D

 

AND YOU WILL REMAIN A NON PRODUCTIVE LAZY LOSER AT LIFE...........

Well, lets see. Social Security has been around since 1934. That's 80 years. So I guess your predictions of failure are based upon the Mayan calendar? I'm sure with the right amount of effort you can say with complete confidence that it will fail in another 80 years or so. If at first you don't succeed.....

Looks like Democrats are putting their chips in place to blame this whole debacle on Republicans.

they've been using that "blame the gop" card for 6 years. it's getting a bit worn out. they've already played the race

card to the point of worthlessness. they may as well toss this one in the fire, too. they need a new gimmick.

Not interested in repealing it dude. That law is going to cost the Democrats the Senate next November. Social Security didn't cost millions their pensions while providing a retirement funds for a few.

The website is a separate issue. It will eventually be fixed. The problem is Obamacare its self. That is something you cannot hide from.

 

BTW, all you good little liberals are now calling it the ACA after Obama himself stopped calling it Obamacare. LMAO! What drones you all are.

 

BTW, that's just an oped. Big deal. LOL!

Where's the trillion dollars coming from to subsidize those exchange plans and pay for the expansion of Medicaid?

 

How is the ACA EVER going to reduce health care costs?

 

And what happens when one of these newly "insured" gets sick and has to come up with $5,000 to pay medical bills or have their insurance dropped?

Capital gains tax and tax on medical devices. Try google, it's fun. The ACA has already flatlined costs. Life is more interesting when you pay attention. So it's better to have uninsured people than insured people with deductibles? Yes, the nutjobs have surrendered the argument.
