No Options

Where do we go from here?  "Here" being the smoldering scene of the Obamacare train wreck.

People like me have seen this coming off the rails since before the clown-in-chief was elected the first time.  The change he promised was unrealistic.  It didn't take a genius to see the obvious, but I am still amazed at how many idiots never stopped to think about what they were supporting and voted into office those who voted this monstrosity into law.

I am even further incensed by our governmental representatives that didn't and don't have an alternative.  We all warned about the train barreling down the tracks, yet not a single Repub or Tea Partier or Independent has a viable alternative to the law we are stuck with.  What did 'our' side do to prepare for this eventuality that they knew was coming?  Not. A. Damn. Thing.

The tragedy of this situation is that there is no going back.  Insurance companies aren't going reduce prices on the true 'gold'-type plans.  They have spent millions trying to comply, as well as figure our how to remain profitable.  Even if some part of the compliance issue goes away, the prices won't go down.  Ever.

Why don't we have a countermeasure ready to deploy?  Why have we spent the better part of over three years, just bitching about a law without coming up with something better?
