Desperate times call for desperate measures. And, for President Obama and his signature piece of legislation — ObamaCare — the times have never been more desperate.
Last week yet another ObamaCare co-op plan announced it would shutter, this time in New Jersey. This marks the 17th co-op to collapse, leaving only six still in operation. As a result, 35,000 New Jerseyans are forced to search for new healthcare plans in a market where options are increasingly thin and expensive.
All of this chaos has contributed to President Obama making a last-ditch effort to stop the complete collapse of ObamaCare:
With no lifeline coming from the divided Congress, Obama and his administration are redoubling their pleas for insurers to shore up the federal health care law and pushing uninsured Americans — especially younger ones — to sign up for coverage. The administration is nervously preparing for its final Obamacare open-enrollment season just a week before Election Day, amid a cascade of headlines about rising premiums, fleeing insurers and narrowing insurance options.
You'd almost feel bad for him if it wasn't his wrong-headed law that created this mess. But instead, his hail-mary attempt to avoid disaster is more like Lt. Frank Drebin in the movie The Naked Gun, telling onlookers "Please disperse! There's nothing to see here!" as a fireworks factory explodes behind him.
The American people know ObamaCare is failing, because they're experiencing it. They're the ones paying ever-increasing premiums. They're the ones forced to find new plans when their co-op fails.
President Obama can't save ObamaCare. No one can. The only way forward is full and complete repeal of ObamaCare, replacing it with market-based healthcare solutions that work for all Americans.
