Your Money And Your Life? Is Obamacare Constitutional?

Obamacare is officially the “Affordable Care Act” (ACA). ACA’s basic mechanism is to use public funds, to pay for private insurance contracted with private, FOR-PROFIT companies… ACA is a transfer of public funds from care to greed. From taxes to plutocrats exploiting health.

The Obama administration had already done this with its TARP program. I called TARP scathingly Transferring Assets to Rich People

Obamacare in particular, and Obama in general, kill: look at the dates carefully… No wonder it was necessary for health care plutocrats to make people obsess about Trump… To distract from this sort of graphs… Obamacare killed, because it made healthcare more expensive and less accessible for 85% of the population… And it didn’t change much of anything for the lower 15%… By the way I am NOT saying that all the pieces of Obamacare are bad. Of course not, there are lots of very good parts in Obamacare. I invented the expression “Medicare For All”… and MFA is what all other advanced countries basically have…

Now, transferring public funds to private companies can be legal and constitutional under emergency circumstances: when the private economy is collapsing, through no reason of its own making, the government should intervene. This is the whole idea of COVID stimulus. 

However the public to private transfer of funds of ACA was meant as a definitive solution, a chronic transfer of public funds to private companies. 

The Obama administration practice of sending public funds to the world’s wealthiest persons explains why inequality became the highest under Obama-Biden. Obama loved to express his admiration for Reagan. However, he was less of a socialist than even Reagan. When 3,000 banks failed under Reagan-Bush, Reagan nationalized them (and then helped them). Using public funds on public property is constitutional. Doing what Obama-Biden did to give public funds to private, for profit enterprises is not constitutional. But it no doubt explains why, within three years of their “public” service, Obama and Biden could afford between themselves five giant mansions.

P/S: Under Obamacare, profits of for profit health insurance companies doubled. The average payments for healthcare by the average US family augmented by $7,900 a year…

    Yeah funny thing. Isn’t it? The egghead’s for Obamacare aren’t the ones on it. Same with government types

    If I was a younger man I would be active in bringing integrity back into the game. But I am not! But that doesn’t prevent me from being incensed at what you write about.

      Thanks Paul! I added the doubling of profits for insurance companies and the augmentation of cost per family (8K). As I said in the introduction of my book:

      “Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.”
      ― Homer, The Iliad.
      Genuine human progress can only be founded on the truth, logic and moods articulated on the most significant facts. All of this requires deep honesty, necessary to debate the truth, and learning from one’s errors, and those of others (which are more numerous). To achieve supreme capability for understanding, one has to be in one piece, mentally, a whole, that is, having integrity, and authenticity, namely being the author of one’s own being.

      In other words, to achieve genuine progress for all, one wants the opposite of fake news and fake thinking to serve authorities higher up in the hierarchy of wealth and power. If one wants genuine progress, bad lies matter: left unexamined, they teach nothing but bad habits and grievous errors.

      Dear Paul: I believe that contributing to general thinking is being in the game. I have several friends who are chaired university professors, and I am shattered by their lack of general intellectual capability… So there is a need for general instruction in the art of thinking…


      • Paul Handover Says:

        I do agree. But I find thinking deeply about something more and more difficult these days; it’s an age thing. However, I do know this. One never ceases to learn about oneself and out of that learning flows the ability to learn about others.


        • Patrice Ayme Says:

          Hmmm… I have found, over the years, that hard exercise resets my mental batteries… or, even more, being in nature, real nature, with snakes, lions, waves, cliffs, lightning, storms, frost, snow, and the possibility of serious problems, should one not apply one’s thinking well enough…

          Actually, I have to rush posting the next essay before going to swim in the icy and murky Pacific Ocean… A pretty dangerous activity… Going to learn about waves and fins is going to require utmost concentration…
