Today’s Pravda: You Didn’t Want That Plan Anyway

RUTA

The JournOlist — it still works!

These came today on top of Josh Barro’s claim earlier this week that “rate shock” means ObamaCare is working, because “young, healthy people” — or “those poor things” as Barro calls them — are asking for it, due to their unseemly youth and health.

We’re going to see a lot more of these crude defenses of ObamaCare in the coming days and weeks — because what else have they got? I especially like Franke-Ruta’s insistence that forcing millions of America’s to lose their preferred coverage and conform to one of four centrally-determined plans is “creative destruction.”

There’s nothing creative about coerced conformity.

Nothing at all.

But that won’t stop the likes of Franke-Ruta and Sally Kohn from putting up smoke screens to obfuscate what Professor Wiggleroom has done to us.

Indeed, someone really, really, really needs to tell her that it's only "creative destruction" when it's the reorganization of capital and labor to fit actual expressed demand.

You can't impose creative destruction... just destruction.

We are well past the time when it was conceivable that even smart people can be politically foolish. These people are out to "purify" us and they don't care what that takes.

i saw jay carney refer to the canceled plans as "substandard." i don't know if that was a trial balloon or not. i suspect that we will hear more of that.

Substandard as in below the standard they just imposed.

Convenient, that. No matter how much the actual customers liked them and their prices, they were "substandard".

Next the Affordable Transportation Act will mandate everyone drive an S-Class because a Corolla isn't good enough.

If they let you pick, you might not pick a car that was good enough, after all.

actually, policies are also getting cancelled because they are too good. companies can't pay the tax on the "cadillac plans"

"For the record, we lost the healthcare plan we liked not because it covered too little but because it was too good (worried of Cadillac tax)."

the above is from Frank J at imao.us

In my lurkings I see "junk insurance," "substandard plans, "scam insurance." Yes, it's the official line, one of those humane interventions like child labor laws and antitrust laws.
