What if making Obamacare work never was the real plan?

Maybe he's not as dumb as we all think he is?

Day before yesterday I had this thought:

What if Obama never intended Obamacare to actually happen?

Or maybe, didn’t care?

He had something else in mind…

Then came the 4th of July, and came across a few bits of Alternate History.

First I read Paul Pirie’s “The American Revolution was a flop” in the Washington Post, where the author (“former historian” and “freelance writer” living in Ontario, Canada—natch) doesn’t think American culture is the better for having won the war.

Then the great historian, Bette Midler, added her two bits, specifically mentioning healthcare—and by implication, single payerhealthcare:

What if this was the plan all along. Just skip past Obamacare and get right to single payer?
