Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Well, it's official, the hot, steaming load of...That is called "Obamacare," is being pushed back until 2015.
The individual mandate is still there, but business is screaming for time.
In a monstrosity, that I think is nothing more than hijacking one-sixth of the nation's economy, is proving to be un-wildly.
No one still knows what the rules are.
No one knows exactly how punishments will work if you do not comply.
It still amazes me how the so-called best and brightest (I am being sarcastic) of federal government see no bumps in the road when you all of a sudden tack 11-million more people to health care and actually sold it and some folks believed it, would not cost any more money.
In California, insurance companies are leaving the system.
A Houston TV station did a story this week about one of the most prominent OBGYN 's just shutting down next year because the government, right now, won't pay up and know they won't when "O-Care" comes to town..
The national debate about health care should have been one of the longest and most thought-out debates in our nation's history.
Instead, it was a back-room deal that now is coming home to roost and Democrats are running for the aisles because it's unpopular.
The strategy from the White House is to push this back past the 2014 elections.
That is all this is.
But I think Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said it best when he tweeted this:
"You know things are bad when you can't even successfully implement your own bad ideas."
That's my point of view, what's yours?
