Obamacare Is Dead: Should We Replace With Single Payer … Or …?

Craig HueyGovernment6 Comments

Across America, people are losing their insurance as insurers drop out of Obamacare.

Choice and quality are disappearing almost daily as some counties in the U.S. only have one carrier.

The worst “fix” is replacing Obamacare with a single-payer system, i.e. government-run socialist healthcare.

Senators Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren have wanted single-payer.

Is it an option? Let’s look at California, where there is a statewide effort to take Obamacare (Covered California) into a single-payer system.

The enormous price tag for the Democrats’ plan to provide “health care for all” would cost California $400 billion a year to create a state-funded universal, government-run healthcare system.

That’s more than double the $180 billion annual state budget.

Residents can expect to pay a huge increase in taxes, as much as 50 percent or more – to the state to cover healthcare costs.

It would be cheaper for individuals to buy from private insurers who have to compete for their business.

Once again, politicians are trying to impose a mandate to force everyone in the state, whether they are here legally or illegally, into the government system.

Single-payer, state-run healthcare will have no competition and no accountability.

Besides, competition always produces better results.

It is ripe for abuse, and the likely outcome is:

  • Skyrocketing taxation
  • Longer wait times and healthcare rationing
  • Less innovation
  • Arbitrary committee decisions on who gets what type of healthcare
  • Soaring costs
  • Quality of healthcare will diminish
  • The eventual destruction of California’s economy as more businesses and residents flee the state and lay off employees

A single-payer system means the government is in total control of your healthcare. Private insurance companies would be eliminated, replaced by socialist-style healthcare that has failed in other countries and states.

Vermont’s attempt at a single-payer system collapsed in 2014 because costs were too high.

As the government discovers it cannot fund it properly, your healthcare will be rationed.

Single-payer will deliver the abysmal healthcare that America’s veterans are subjected to from government-run VA system.

Do you really want the state running your healthcare?

  1. As the past few decades increasingly evidence, the possibility of a true solution in this matter is unlikely. Mainly because a true solution must necessarily be consistent with the ‘original intent of America’s amended constitution.’ And for a true solution to be implemented, those 98 million in America claiming Christ must be honest about the fact that things like this unconstitutional ‘government Health-Control’ (ObamaCare) issue are a symptom of an effective greater ‘disease’ terminally infecting America. The effective ‘disease’ being increasingly lukewarm Christianity precluding Christ from being represented in society and government thereby giving ground to God offending humanists and they’re useful-pawns. A group commonly referred to as ‘The Establishment’ which infests all political parties and the media while deconstructing our constitutional-republic form of government using anti-christian governance while concentrating power into federal government where they can’t control it.

    1) Those attending churches where their church leadership does not regularly remind everyone of their biblical obligation to represent Christ in society and government to the exclusion of God offending societal and governmental pathologies, must respectfully pressure their church leadership to begin fulfilling this biblical requirement. We must engage in ‘works’ per James Chapter-2 (verses 14, 17, 18, 20, 24, 25, & 26) evidencing true faith, which necessarily manifests in a love and healthy-fear of God more a fear being ostracized by church leadership. Only then will the ‘Christ-void’ created by lukewarm christianity in society and government be filled with representation of Christ sufficient enough to change America’s trajectory from national-suicide to restoration.

    2) Lawfully cleanse the GOP of the constitutional-deconstructionists and outright chameleon-like ‘establishment’ conservative-impostors infecting it like a cancer – starting with our existing House and Senate leadership. If there’s anything we should have verified over the past century, it’s that continually voting for a constitutional-deconstructionist who poses as a ‘conservative’ by using christian and conservative rhetoric in order to prevent a democrat from being elected, only serves to change America’s path toward national-suicide. A politician is ONLY conservative if honoring his/her oath of office to govern constitutionally – not merely because they trash-talk democrats, use christian rhetoric, or are labeled as ‘conservative’ on globalist Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News/Business.


  2. I totally agree – No socialized medicine – it does NOT work. But what we have to do is educate people to this. There are so many who think socialized healthcare is the way to go.

  3. If you really want to see the health care problems end and just for all you need to include ALL in it. This includes all government and union members. Every one under one system with no exclusions. You will see the best health care possible if all (city, county, state,and federal employees including White House occupants. We are all people deserving the same care. One person is not above the other. God made us equal.

  4. Is there a Biblical mandate regarding taking on the health care needs of a) brothers and sisters in the Lord and b) neighbors? The inconvenient possible answers to this question have hindered me for a long time. (Selfishness.) How would the health care debate be different if Christians were binding up more the wounds of others, so to speak? (I mean, more directly, not via taxation and government.)

  5. ‘Establishment’ Senate Republicans and their useful-pawns shot down Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) clean Obamacare repeal bill today (Wednesday).

    Paul’s bill served as a litmus test for Republican senators on repealing Obamacare (government health control) by diferentiating between true conservatives who are necessarily constitutionalists, verses ‘establishment’ conservative-impostors labeled as ‘GOP Moderates’ by their ‘establishment’ media accomplices.

    All current GOP senators except for Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) voted for a similar Obamacare repeal bill in 2015 – but not now when the GOP could pass it, evidencing their conservative-impostor nature.


    The historical evidence is clear. When Democrats maintain a congressional majority and the presidency America quickens toward national-suicide. And when the ‘establishment’ infested GOP maintains a congressional majority and the presidency America’s slide toward national-suicide merely changes direction and speed but continues – with restoration nowhere in sight.

    As for God saving America, I’m not sure why He would, given that the reason for America’s pending destruction is that all but a rare few of the 98 million claiming Christ in America do not find Christ worth representing in society and government to displace the dialectical ‘establishment’ Democrat and ‘establishment’ moderate-republican synergy destroying America.
