Solutions for Obamacare

There’s a lot we don’t know about “Obamacare,” like what our premiums will be, but I’m sure they’re working on it.

I’ve come up with a solution to whether it will ever be accepted or not. Here’s what we do:

We pass a law that all government employees, active or retired, which includes any state employees who receive funding from the federal government, must use Obamacare as their medical care.

Any employee, active or retired, who fails to do so, will then become per diem employees or per diem retired employees. This would greatly impact their retirement benefits – like, take them all away.

It’s within each American’s right to refuse Obamacare. You may be wealthy and elect to pay your own way. That’s great, we’ll just take you off the billing role, and next month and all subsequent months for the rest of your life you will receive nothing from the federal government.

We may allow you funeral benefits should you pass away, but of course they’ll be subject to capital gains tax. I mean just to be fair.

You’ll of course still be invited to all annual picnics and reunions. That should do it!
