I keep reading headlines asking “Is Obamacare working?”, as if the law has not been massively deferred in countless ways by the renegade who occupies the White House. Deferred, of course, because it is not working — not at all — and the unconstitutional delays by Obama are designed to keep Americans blind to the truth of its catastrophic multiple failures.
So far this Orwellian plan to hide its failures in plain sight is working pretty well. But in the meantime, little bits of the law’s disastrous reality peak through here and there…
Case in point: New Hampshire is lately “BEGGING” that the Obamacare Cadillac Tax provision be waived, because if it isn’t, the state’s very generous health care plans for TEACHERS are going to be taxed out of existence.

I’ll bet Barack Hussein Obama is smiling right now thinking of a state — one of the original 13 colonies no less — “begging” for mercy from the federal government. This is what he lives for, and has worked so hard for.
In case you forgot what the Cadillac Tax is, here is some description from this latest news story, and yes, it is true — this thing actually was put into the Obamacare law, on purpose.
It’s a 40 percent excise tax on all employer-sponsored health plans that cost annually more than $10,200 for an individual or $27,500 for a family. Because of comparatively rich health plans and the highest regional costs in the country, employers are already worrying about how they can pare down to reach that threshold.
That’s right, this draconian tax will hit such plans so hard that such plans will become extinct (“pare down” is another way of saying “take away benefits”), which is the law’s evil design. Imagine it: a very generous plan, such as the one for New Hampshire’s SCHOOL DISTRICTS, will be destroyed and replaced by, most likely, a high-deductible plan with far worse health coverage for the teachers.
Thanks, Barack Obama.
Lisa Duquette is the executive director of SchoolCare, a nonprofit health insurance provider that partners with Cigna to cover 25,000 in the state. She said most of SchoolCare’s employer groups –schools districts and municipalities – are finding that all of their offered health plans will trigger the tax.
