DUers FINALLY discover that the mandate isn't enforceable and blame the Obama suckup, coverup media for "not knowing about it", but then they fail to figure out that if only sick people are paying for Obama care that it'll be immediately bankrupt and need to limit coverage or fail all together.
Something conservatives have been saying since just after Pelosi claimed that we'd have to pass it to see what was in it.
Of course it's not that it's not enforcable, but it's close....has the same consequences. Not that liberals can figure it out....or else they are just covering it up to help Obama.

Apparently the individual mandate in Obamacare is basically unenforceable anyway
See this very good segment with Larry O'Donnell and an actual political scientist who has read the bill.
Don't expect the ignoramus news media to get it. There is a lot of technocratic policy talk here; that might be too much for Candy Crowley and Jake Tapper to be intelligent enough to figure out.Good question. Actually it's not that it's "unenforcable" it's that you can elect to pay a SMALL fine and then when you get sick you can opt in. Same consequences.AnotherMcIntosh (1,885 posts)
4. Unenforceable? Then why is the government hiring more IRS agents to begin enforcing it?
Disregard the IRS if you want, but you do so at your peril.
Well, not on the far left sites DUers go to.watchdogg (18 posts)
