Instead of producing products, providing services and making a profit, businesses will be coping with 2,900 pages of convoluted legislation, 20,000 pages of regulations and 10,000 contentious IRS auditors. These insurance exchanges, computer technologies and health services will not and cannot be FIXED even if they go to Single Payer socialist health care. Like all other government programs, consumer choice is replaced by the bureaucratic discretion of the Secretary of Health. Obamacare epitomizes everything that is wrong with a government that is too big, too costly and too powerful! While Democrats would reform it and Republicans would replace it, we need to fundamentally change not just Obamacare, but government. We don’t need millions of federal bureaucrats imposing new mandates, regulations and requirements on minions of state and local bureaucrats who, in turn, impose these burdens on businesses and individuals. Administrative, budgetary and regulatory decisions for most domestic programs should be turned over to the states and localities.

We need to move a Constitutional Amendment through the state legislatures that requires federal officers to automatically pay the debt owed to federal bond holders, Social Security and Pensioners.
