Buying Off Obummercare’s Victims

If Obummercare is so all-fired magnificent, why do its authors keep bribing us to accept it?

U.S. consumers and employers will receive about $1.3 billion in rebates from insurance companies this year, according to a new study quantifying a key early benefit of the healthcare law that President Obama signed in 2010. That will translate to a few dollars … more than $150 apiece for nearly 16 million consumers nationwide…”

So it’s not enough to suborn patients by assuring them that someone else will foot their bills. Now the Feds are openly paying them off, as even the Los Angeles Times admits later in its coverage: “The Obama administration, which is still laboring to persuade a wary public to support the landmark law, was quick to point to the study and remind the public about the new legal requirements.”

Oh, I’ll bet they were.
