    Obamacare’s Endless Web of Bureaucracy

    07/28/2010

    In a Thomas Sowell column, he states:



    It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.


    Today, the Joint Economic Committee released a flowchart to illustrate the bureaucratic nightmare known as ObamaCare.

     It gets worse. The committee analysis could only fit one-third of the complexity of Obamacare on the above flowchart. Finally, Nancy Pelosi and the other lawmakers that did not bother to read the entirety of the 2,801 page bill can find out what actually was in it. As it turns out, the creation of 159 new bureaucracies, insurance mandates and higher taxes were hidden in the complex law.


    For comparison purposes, here’s what the free market health care flow chart looks like:

    The free market health care plan is a simple model that leaves health care decisions between a patient and a doctor instead of a complex web of bureaucracy. We will continue to fight until the bureaucratic monstrosity that is Obamacare is repealed and replaced with a simple free market model that emphasizes freedom.
