I’m not sure why political cartoonists have been revisiting the issue of Obamacare in recent days, but I’ve been enjoying their humor.
Now let’s enjoy three more, beginning with this gem from Lisa Benson.
If you somehow think Obamacare might be different, watch this video.
Gary Varvel hits a different part of Obamacare, noting that the President’s promise of lower premiums is an utter fantasy.
And Michael Ramirez looks at the big picture.
I want to close with an optimistic point about the prospect of changing this terrible law.
Thanks to government programs and other forms of regulation and intervention, we had a bad healthcare system before Obamacare.
And even though it was government that was causing the system to malfunction, many people blamed the free market. And the President took advantage of that misunderstanding to push he legislation.
So now we have Obamacare, which has made the system a bit more statist.
But most people think Obamacare was much bigger than it actually was, with some actually thinking we used to have a free market!
Anyway, this flawed perception works to our advantage since it will now be possible to blame any bad news in the healthcare world on Obamacare.
As such, I expect that Obamacare will remain unpopular.
The real question will be whether reformers will rally behind proposals to not just repeal Obamacare, but to actually restore a free market.
