We cannot depend on the Supreme Court to save us from Obamacare. This is why the Truth Squad doesn’t hold out much hope for the origination case that is still working its way through the courts.
The Truth Squad believes we’ll get one more good shot at repeal in 2017 – IF a Republican president is elected and the GOP hangs on to the House and Senate.
Regardless of what happens, the Truth Squad is working to tear Obamacare down brick-by-brick and build up as much free market space in healthcare as possible. One way to do both is to bring back true catastrophic insurance. Our proposal is here and our ideas for getting states to nullify Obamacare to allow the sale of true catastrophic insurance are here.
The Truth Squad has talked it over we have resolved to keep at it, even if Obamacare is NEVER repealed. OCTS will stay motivated even if all we can do is fight the Left to a draw on Obamacare and stave off single-payer. In that scenario, the fight over Obamacare drags out 30 or 40 years, but eventually the deal gets re-cut and we end up in a better place than we are now. The fight will look like the fights over abortion after Roe v. Wade and over school busing after those contentious court cases. It took decades of civil discontent and agitation, but busing finally got trimmed back and the busing issue, which caused a lot of people a lot of heartburn for a very long time, finally got somewhat resolved. The same thing is happening now in the abortion fight. After decades of keeping up the fight, the pro-life movement is finally getting somewhere with changes in public opinion among young people, personhood bills, and the application of health regulations to abortion clinics.
The fight over Obamacare could end up the same way, but we must stay in the fight. We can still make headway because Obamacare has never enjoyed the support of a majority of the American people. It’s very divisive, and all the problems are still there after King – the rising costs, the loss of freedom, all of it. We can take a page from Lenin’s book: “collect every grain of rudimentary protest…., utilize every manifestation of discontent ….”
Please help us. Keep pressuring Obamacare from all angles. The subsidies and Medicaid expansion costs are adding to the national debt, so keep fighting deficit spending and working for a debt-free future alongside the Tea Party. Spread the word that bringing back true catastrophic insurance would make more sense than the Obamacare law that wiped out all low-cost insurance options.
Please follow us on Twitter. We tweet all the bad news about Obamacare every day, and provide links. It’s like getting a high-priced, specialized newsletter for free. We’re not aware of any other effort out there that provides a steady drip-drip-drip of criticism of a particular government program every single day. It’s a weapon, let’s use it. If you know anybody who likes to retweet, please let them know about us. We also have a Facebook page where we put some of our tweets, if you prefer that.
Lastly, we hear others starting to say, ‘I’m tired.’ Well, we’re not tired and we’re not ever going to get tired. There’s too much at stake. But we need your help. Please help us by spreading the word and talking up free market solutions in healthcare every chance you get.
