Another bit of math
Kansas City, July 4th, 2012 - As a nation divided under Obama ...
Okay, now we know, in fact, we know now for some weeks. Obamacare is constitutional. Well, Judge Roberts said, it is a tax, and since raising taxes is not in the presidential powers, we would need a new voting in the Congress, because otherwise, it's unconstitutional because the President has assumed congressional powers. But otherwise?
Now the debates go on and on and on. I read them and it's always the same. And nobody seems to speak out the really relevant point. Which, as usual, is the math behind all of that.
Lets have a look. Obama and his cronies Reid and Pelosi claim, that law give 30 million Americans the gift of health care. Lets just check this claim first:
The average size of a family in this group is 4.5. Normally 1 mother and 3-4 children, the father(s) out of the picture. They have to live of $1000 per month or less.
The rents are, depending where, somewhere between $400 and $500 per months. Clothes, utilities make about $200 per months easily and that leaves, if they have $1000 to begin with, many have less), $400 for food, schoolbooks, etc. For 4.5 persons! So with $1000, they can barely make it. This leads to two possible scenarios:
No health insurance, just pay the fines. That is $10 per month (1% of their income in 2014), Money they don't have, but hey, they can save one meal for the kids and they have it.
Or they can get health insurance. Then it's quick $800 plus from their $1000 per month. No way, that they really can do it. They would be evicted and starve on the street.
So, those 30 million Americans aren't getting health insurance. Obama's big government gets between a half and full billion from them without them getting anything. That's the mathematical truth behind this. So those 30 million Americans should be the first one voting against Obama, because nobody can demand from them to give their kids less food to pay the Obama-fines for getting nothing.
But well, that's only one of the mathematical aspects. Lets look at the others. How abut those, who have health insurance?

Obama's victims: Care to take this bread from her?

Their premiums raise and the treatments they can receive will diminish. Because the money that can be spent depends on the mathematical average. So

x/1 > x/n where n>1.

No mystery in that. And since those, who have health insurance, for example government employees, are enforced to go more often to the doctor to get the maximum use out of it, the costs raise, the available money per insured person decreases. All other countries with similar systems have found that out more than ten years ago. Why do you think, the UK, Germany, France, etc, have to lead the discussion about such unsustainable systems? Because they are unsustainable. Any mathematical system, in whcih you have to put in more than you can get out is unsustainable. That's not ideology, that's mathematical certainty.
There is another aspect, nobody likes to speak about. Administrative costs. In 2000, when Germany found out, they sit on an unsustainable system, the German health care system produced a deficit of 4 billion Euro. In the same time, the biggest health insurance company, the AOK, which is the one, who has to take everyone, produced about 4 billion Euro inadministrative costs. And that was, after the left-leaning government of SPD and Greens had already chance to color their numbers nice.
What's the bottomline here? Obamacare cares for Obama's big government and it's employees. Nobody will get health insurance from it, but the poor will get poorer.
Of course, it would be nice if everybody would be health insured. But to press out the last penny from the poor will not achieve this goal. So we need other ways. However, we will not find other ways while we all raush deeper and deeper in the debt and the Obama administration steals from Medicare to get their own failed brainchild up and running ($500 million are already taken).
Now, there is one point more to it. Romneycare! In fact, it was the same failure. Lets face it, it was as wrong as Obamacare. But it can work on the level of a single state because a single state can be bailed out by the nation. If the nation fails, nobody will bail us out. So, since both systems have basically the same mathematical problem and testruns in European countriesa already proved, those systems are unsustainabalbe, we need something else. And something esle, we can only afford if we bring the economy up first. It's that simple. If you're in a plane, nose down spiraling to the ground, the first thing is to get the nose up again. A new paint for that bird can be discussed later
