The Obamacare Comedy Of Errors... In Cartoons

Tyler Durden's picture


There are just hours left until the formal March 31 deadline (although at this point so many deadlines have been extended it is not quite clear just which deadline this is) to sign up for Obamacare. Or rather, to put Obamacare in your check out basket with the intention of paying... at some indefinite time in the future. So instead of rehashing and repeating all the things that have already been said countless times about Obamacare, below we show some of the best cartoons laying out the tragicomedy that is Obamacare by Politico's Matt Wuerker.

hell, obamacare, if it lives up to its preliminary negative notices, has a great potential in this area.

the u.s. pays twice the healthcare costs of the rest of the advanced world for care with just worse than the efficiency of costa rica and just better than slovenia:

Oregonian, you may have a middle finger you're willing to provide for Obamacare, but I don't. Mine are too valuable; I use them - constantly, it seems - to remind people that I was already aware of their IQs. Judging by their reactions, most people don't like to be reminded of it.

Thanks, and interesting if accurate.

$98 for me next year, $695 in 2016.

Considering that $695 is about 2 months of premiums not counting ridiculous deductibles and co-pays I'm still not paying for that shit.

If I get really ill then I'll sign up, get my money's worth, then dump it.  Turnabout is fair play.

And...they're going to have to figure a way to get any penalty money out of me, if I'm still Stateside that is.

I can't keep it all straight.  I have heard nobody suggest this, but in what way is ObamaCare - and its penalty - not exactly like that which the Foundres abhored:

!) poll tax,

2) head tax?

In theory, if you don't pay the penalty, can't they throw you in jail?  Your sole aspect of incurring the liability is your existence/life/breath.  Assuming that these pundits in the media know lots more than I do, they shpold have put that argument forward.  I would have thought that Scalia's brocolli comparison would have been sufficient o bury ObamaCare.  Assuming right now poll/head tax srgument is my ignorance.


Hmmmm.  Eric Holder is now trying to fix things so felons can vote.  Maybe from that perspective it wouldn't be a poll taqx.

The "Income Tax" as it is administered is unconstitutional for the same reasons.

Resist by following the law AS WRITTEN. Not "all that comes in" is "income".


If you have no "income", you are exempt from Obamacrap.

You can't escape the changes to the healthcare system, though.

It is Unconstitutional.

Enforcement is treason.


The American people's first and foremost weapon is to just quit paying, Let them try to maintain their house of cards ponzi without the stolen labor and wealth of their victims, the American people. They can't. And if one understands how the fraudulent-reserve banks work, they will realize that they stole the money they "loaned" you in the first place.

Just quit obeying and playing.

The Four Rs
Rejection: Quit paying, quit obeying , quit playing
Revolution: It is inevitable, so prepare, as they are.
Retribution: Is there really any place for these sociopaths and criminals in a restored civil and Constitutional society?!
Restoration: Restore the Constitutional republic.

The health care law is Constitutional, you and almost all the people don't understand the law and how it is being applied to them. What is unlawful is the misrepresentation, fraud in the inducement, and the misapplication of the law, not the law itself.


Do you understand, that being lawfully present in the United States, does not mean the country.

Do you understand, when you say you are a citizen of the United States, this does not mean the entire country

Do you understand, in law, there are more than 1 definition for the United States.

Do you understand, the Supreme court has ruled the sixteenth amendment to the Constitution DID NOT grant congress any new taxing

authority. To have done so would have been a violation of the Constitution.

Do you understand, that unless the people start learning and understanding the law we have no chance of ever returning this country to

it's proper position.

kind of agree with the down arrows.  this is symptomatic:

"A Caesar at home and a Chamberlain abroad, Obama manages to simultaneously provoke fury and ridicule. 


He bullies critics here while shrinking from adversaries there."

see imo obama doesn't break down like that.  he bullies powerless critics/opponents wherever while shrinking from powerful adversaries everywhere.  and they don't have to be all that powerful.  just remember how the blue dog democrats and the marginal republican vote that never came eviscerated obamacare.

I figure I've got a year, maybe two, with the rates where they are. After that ACA will either be repealed by the new republican president, or rates will be skyrocketing under the new democrat president after the insurance companies tally up the deadbeats. Two years of relative stability and then chaos again. Oh well.

"...repealed by the new republican president..."

That made me chuckle. Thanks.


Sidenote: Obama is CIA. His eight year mission is to destroy, for the sheeple at least, the left?Dems and pave the way for acceptance of the coming dictatorship.

If I am correct, they will need one more "nail" in the coffin toward the end of Obama's admin, and that will be a scandal involving his sexual orientation. Such a thing will solidify the "evangelical" base that the right/neocons have so diligently cultivated over the years. It is not about votes, but attitudes and support for what they have planned.

Watch for it.

Well I already had insurance before Obama put his dick in it, but he sure makes me want to drop it so I'm not counted as complying.

The numbers for Obamacare never worked and don't work now and wouldn't work if every millenial logged in and bought every gold-pressed latinum plan available.  They were counting on - guess what, COERCION, not this year's pitiful penalties but the ones that increase over the next year or two, to FORCE everyone to buy.  And guess what, that will probably work.

EXCEPT that based on current enrollments and actual costs the premiums will probably have to soar over the next couple of years, so even the coercive multi-thousand dollar fines will be only a push.  Politically, it can't possibly last.  The only out is for, guess what, the federal government (read the federal reserve) to print enough moolah to subsidize the program, which if they were going to do that in the first place would have made the mandate and fines POINTLESS.

What a cluster-fuck, really historic in scope.

All by design.

Nebulous 3,000+ page legislation written by Big Pharma/Insurance/Corporatcare industry, with ever shifting mandates via Executive decrees and waivers.

Meanwhile, premiums go up along with deductibles and co-pays.

Another 10 years of politicians dicking around while costs rise at 5 times the inflation rate per year.

Typical U.S.S.A. New Rome quagmire of bullshit while bleeding the populace.

Privatized gains/Socialized losses; lather, rinse, repeat.

“With that in mind and with great enthusiasm and a sense of history that we have of this responsibility to ensure that health care in America is a right not a privilege..."

These are all direct Nana quotes.

Pass a bill no one ever read before passage into law. Lie about it creating four million jobs in the process. Then compound hubris, deception and fraud with a claim to anothers labor & expertise, as an individual right.

This chaos has been all by design (or lack of it?). This was never meant to be workable in any real way. The goal is two fold:

1. Wind down the Healthcare Insurance Industry (there will be bailouts and nationalization). Investors will be made whole, CEOs will walk away with huge bonuses, and the creative destruction of closing these companies will be epic.

2. Single Payer..Uncle Sam gets to tell you what GMO foods to eat.

It's always been about control, just like everything else these criminals do.

Everything now is about huge government programs sold to the public as  making anything more equal that in fact are designed from their very foundation to do the opposite. The Fed, Obamacare, NSA, Energy credits for Global warming, All of these programs from the foundation up are designed to funnel money to the government and their kleptocracies to maintain the status quo of an overly bloated governement social class that feeds on the populace. It even includes the social sites such as fuckbook. If you don't believe the g'ment had a hand in how to set that up for maximum data flow you're an idiot. Socially our response should be to vote EVERYBODY out no matter who they are until we get a group that will align with smaller government, Fed target of 0% inflation EVERY year with oversite, protect our borders, and no more TBTF Ever!
