Phasing Out Obamacare WILL Still Be Possible in 4 Years: Plan

One of the most crushing aspects of this week's election victory of Barack Obama is that Obamacare will be implemented, making it SO much harder to repeal. But not impossible. The issue is that real people will be on the Obamacare rolls, and a flat-out repeal will cause hardship and fear.

The best solution is to break the operation up into 50 small pieces and dole it out to the states. This rewards those states who opt out of Obamacare. The others who want to milk the national treasury will inherit responsibility for the system, and through a phase-out period, they will put the most needy people back onto Medi-Cal, Medi-Caid or whatever state program they were using in the first place.

Simultaneously, common-sense health care reforms can be implemented, improving affordability and the health of the nation at the same time.

Opie,

While I wanted to post my response to your comment on my blog re Whittle's screed, I wonder if those doctors opting out of Medicare now mightn't be interested in Bill's "Parallel Structures" concepts? Physicians and hospitals a part of this? I know htis is 1/6th of our economy, but still? He posits that there could be a form of alternate education with his model. Why not?

Anyway, to my response: I guess -- after a fashion -- I shall be joining you and LCR in the "TRUE" quest for conservative leaders. Not that I regret the effort that Romney put forth but that our opponents were more formidable. And who would not be with the Greek chorus of the mainstream media to aid them?

Manic? Who of us are not at this moment? But his description of the model of government -- the vertical model -- being a product the industrial revolution -- has merit. His assertion of the third wave possibly being the "informational revolution" has credence. Consider eBay, Amazon, etc. and others who have made markets on the internet. (I know my examples are woefully obvious, but it is 0735 PST two days after our country was from us "untimely ripp'ed".)

Anyway, his concept is surprisingly well formed for a preliminary proposal and his sentiments about absolutely not looking back with recriminations is correct. It is energy misspent.

The point of greatest significance, I believe, is the ceding of the archaic federal government to Reid and Obama and (even) Boehner as we construct our parallel structures.

A belated but sincere thanks, by the way, for your consistent friendship and visits to my blog. You, LL, and Woodster are the true definitions of friends.

God bless you and keep you and your family safe in his hands, M.A.

Sorry for the bandwidth; wanted to make sure you saw this.

TWP, my "manic" quip was meant as no disrespect. That he could even function, much less record himself in the aftermath of the electoral tragedy that struck our nation on Tuesday is impressive.

As for his message, I still have about 1/3 left to listen to. Sounds interesting. The challenge will be getting people to part with their money in a tough economy.
