King: Obamacare Designed to Defy Defeat

Agreement is almost universal that the new healthcare law is overcomplicated. And it was made that way on purpose to prevent lawmakers from changing it, says Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

“Obamacare is today’s Gordian knot,” he writes on Politico. “The law was drafted to be incredibly difficult for lawmakers to unravel. When then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President Barack Obama, and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid drafted Obamacare, they quietly included provisions that automatically spend $105.5 billion over the next 10 years to implement the law.”

Some of the automatic funding continues forever, King notes.

“Unprecedented in scope, these self-enacting provisions grant Obamacare its own self-contained, automatic money machine. These are the resources that fertilize this malignant tumor, which is extending its roots into every aspect of our health care system.”
