I know it’s just politician-speak. I know it’s going to be semantically null before she’s done opening her mouth. But sometimes a pol says something that makes me wonder if she has any capacity for shame at all

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, preparing for her fourth straight Congress in the minority — she lost her speakership in 2010, in an anti-Obamacare backlash — now says it’s the GOP that will pay a political price if it moves to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.

“You break it, you own it,” the California Democrat said.

Nancy PelosiAre you serious, Nancy? Are you serious? “Breaking” Obamacare would be an action on a logical par with removing all the complex moving parts from a rock. Or, for that matter, all the honest people from Congress.

    Absolutely, Joel. The thing is that it really doesn’t matter much what they do. Whatever the new congress proposes to “replace” the unaffordable act will not fix it, and may wind up being even worse. That will not change until people generally realize that no government has any authority to dictate these things, and no real power to provide what they promise.

    Indeed. The only rational thing to do is repeal the ACA, then step away and let the health-care market heal itself. But of course that way lies anarchy! Chaos! No, you’re very right, they’ll come up with something just as bad if not worse – assuming they don’t do what I actually expect them to, which is to wimp out and leave the misbegotten law in place.

    Leaving it to the free market is the only actual cure, naturally, but something will have to be done eventually. The way the Obummercare thing is set up now there soon won’t be any doctors or hospitals, etc. willing to accept that “insurance.” The whole thing is set up to enrich the bureaucrats and major pharmacy, and small segments of the industry. But the one big mistake was to create problems for the insurance people. If you analyze what’s happened, and the bandaid “fixes” that have been introduced, you can see that there won’t be any kind of insurance soon, let alone “affordable.”

    The one thing people have to understand and act on is that having “insurance” has little or nothing to do with finding competent health care professionals to actually take care of medical problems. And ever expanding the free ride numbers while reducing the payment for doctors is a sure path to bankruptcy. And someday, the government will no longer be able to create “money” from thin air…

    But in the meantime, people are going to have to figure out how to deal with their health care needs without much help from “insurance.” And give up the idea that the government is going to make anything “affordable.”

To the stake with the heretic!
