Obamacare Prediction Update 2017: It Just Won't Die! (Where's a Death Panel When You Need One?)

At the end of 2015 when I posted my predictions for 2016 that included the imminent demise of Obamacare, many Americans were still accepting it as the status quo. As predicted, 2016 was a disastrous year for Obamacare, and Americans are outraged at the dramatic increases in premiums accompanied by higher deductions for less care.

Looking back, here's what I predicted:

"Obamacare 2016:
Obamacare really brings nothing to the table in terms of true economic growth, and as a matter of fact, is a real economy job killer, despite the fact that it has created many short-term, valueless jobs, which the government has used to boost employment figures.  These Obamacare-related jobs will swell to an amazing peak in early 2016, then stop dead in their tracks around June of 2016.  This will prove those who have warned against the dangers of Obamacare to our economy to be absolutely right!"

So, what's next for Obamacare? Will Trump and the Republicans be able to repeal and replace it with something new, like simple prepaid medical plans and affordable insurance for catastrophic care, perhaps with refinements to the existing Medicare system?
Obamacare proponents quietly mocked the
ignorance of Americans for believing that
Obamacare was anything more than an
incredible tax hike on Middle Class
Americans.

Obamacare just won't die in 2017, despite a special committee(s) designed just for the purpose of killing and replacing it. Honestly, the central banks and multinational corporations that benefit from this fascist business model are so deeply embedded in the U.S. federal government, that despite having both a House and Senate that are Republican, along with a Republican (in name) President, this initiative just goes no where fast!  

The danger to the economy and in particular the healthcare industry if Obamacare continues on much longer is obvious, but the good news is that the Federal government as we know it is about to change for the better!
