Ron Paul: Obamacare Will Fail; Don’t Blame China for Our Problems

Ron Paul explains why Obamacare, Medicare, Social Security and other inherently flawed programs will fail. He also said that government intervention in China-related matters is not the answer to America’s problems: “We can’t blame China for us spending too much money.”

    At the time, premiums for care was going up at a *gasp* 1% year clip, which of course now has skyrocketed to over 50% for many people in 2010. Gee, at this day and age we’d be happy for only 1% yearly rise. Alas it’ll only increase further if it keeps going this way (to a single payer system which will bankrupt the country which piles on top of everything else, like wars, other social programs, stiff regulations and such). This is why he says it’ll destroy itself eventually, because it will.

    I gave the simple explanation of course, it’s more involved than that but that was essentially all it was, to help people supplement care since they were living longer on government dole (relying on social programs for income in the first place). One social program leads to another, more regulations and interventions lead to more regulations and interventions and you wind up with Obamacare. Good intentions, poor outcome.

    We haven’t had non-intervened health care in this country for a long time now, and each intervention distorts it further and further driving up the costs astronomically. I would link to the videos of Ron Paul explaining it in detail, though I forget exactly which ones they are.

    He’s right on health care, i’m surprised to see so many people comment otherwise. You have to go back at least fifty years and find out why the government intervened into the marketplace in the first place. Ron Paul has explained this in other videos, though not recently (focusing on the now). It originally had to do with retired citizens and nothing else because social security was put into place and those people became reliant on that system so it medicare was put into place to supplement it.


    All your prayers are being answered!! A BLOODLESS Revolution has occurred and a new REPUBLIC of the PEOPLE has been established!!
    Many, many patriots since 1994 have been working to legally unwind the change that was made to our federal government by a group of foreign bankers over 100 years ago. These foreign bankers created a corporation and we have been their slaves ever since. NOW NO LONGER!!
    There were groups all over this country which contributed to making this historic event occur. I was part of a 5 county group here in WA. Please join us as sovereign Kings and Queens in the new Republic.

    – cont. The day we start charging Taxes on imports is the day jobs will start coming back to the US. because if their is no economic benefit for our corporations to export jobs overseas ( cheap ass labor, with no import taxes ) thats when they will bring back the factories. China didn’t take our jobs, OUR corporations gave it to them.

  • gilgamesh1962

    I agree with Ron on a few things. Agree 1) Don’t blame China for doing things the way we in the USA used to do them pre 80s.2) I do not agree with the part in the Health care reform that makes it mandatory to have health Insurance 3) Maintaining bases all over the world is very costly and does not make us more secure here at home. Disagree 1) His “Undermining corporations” comment, corporations are all for globalization its what they want, Ron please, become Independent again.

  • JohnNoZ35

    I like Ron, and voted for him. I agree with him on China. But on health care… we have been waiting for that “free market solution” for a century.

  • garrethdavis

    right on as per usual

  • jimberkt

    Aw the liberals are going to tear into him over the next few years. He uses so much reason in his thinking while the left claim sole ownership on reason. Of course it is only a compromised reason. It’s gonna drive them nuts. Especially since it shows them up for the shallow unreasonable screaming children they are.
