I have just published the eighth chapter of my book-in-progress, “Open Wide And Say Moo! – The Good Citizen’s Guide To Right Thoughts and Right Actions Under Obamacare.” This chapter is called The Real Infrastructure of Obamacare.
You can find it here.
I hope you don’t mind but I posted a blog post and link at ChicagoBoyz.com. People say that the IPAB immutability is obviously unconstitutional but it got no attention and the USSC might just throw out the mandate and leave the rest alone. I hope their clerks are close readers of this law.
I’m happy for all the links I can get.
I called attention to the immutability language in Obamacare not because I think it will be effective – I can’t see any future Congress actually feeling itself bound by such language, since the whole idea is absurd. Rather, I wrote about it as an example of the utter arrogance and audacity of the people who wrote this law, and of their attitude toward the house of the people.
One good thing that the immutability clause does is it makes Obamacare less respectable. It is obviously unconstitutional and would gut the separation of powers if it were to remain. Assuming that we do not luck out and get rid of the whole edifice in one shot, each piece that is invalidated makes the next challenge to constitutionality more respectable.
Something that was not addressed in chapters 7 and 8 is the question of the healthcare for the elites and the authors of the bill. Certainly the elites in congress and the president are not going to be bound by the limits of Obamacare. They will not attribute themselves to an ACO. What are your thoughts on this? Maybe you address this later? Are there carve-outs and exemptions for them? Will they just make a separate elite ACO with extra money allocated? Certainly they’re willing accomplice doctors (the ones that are chosen for the panels) will probably be beholden to see and take care of them to continue in the elite club but how do they control this 2nd tier of healthcare fom blossoming beyond their own kind and getting out of control? What about the elites’ family and friends and friends of friends and friends of friends of friends?
