Default Here's Hoping That Obamacare Is Better Than That Appalling Obamacare

A middle-aged man in a red golf shirt shuffles up to a small folding table with gold trim, in a booth adorned with a flotilla of helium balloons, where government workers at the Kentucky State Fair are hawking the virtues of Kynect, the state’s health benefit exchange established by Obamacare.

The man is impressed. "This beats Obamacare I hope," he mutters to one of the workers.

“Do I burst his bubble?” wonders Reina Diaz-Dempsey, overseeing the operation. She doesn't. If he signs up, it's a win-win, whether he knows he's been ensnared by Obamacare or not.

Nice twist on the Mojave Experiment, and it wasn't even intentional this time.

This reminds me of an experience I had last week at Walgreens. The cashier told me about all of the (perceived) evils of Obamacare and then proceeded to say we need Medicare for all of us , as it worked well for her and didn't involved the government. I gently corrected her and she told me I was mistaken. Okay then.

Aha! We can repeal Obamacare and replace it with Medicare for everybody!

Single payer; just like I wanted all along.

-- unfortunately, I doubt it's possible to slip that one past the US Congress, even if it could be slipped past some of the constituents.

though a corner of my head is wondering: if it could be put to the Republicans as getting rid of Obamacare, and put to some of the Democrats as universal health insurance, and if they've really quit talking to each other . . .
