As Murray Rothbard asked, “cui bono,” or “who benefits.” Here is the answer to his question when it comes to Obamacare, plain and simple. Just as the corporate hospital stocks soared after Justice Robert’s ruling, they soared with the announcement that pay cuts became pay raises and the elimination of the uncompensated care payments became a maintenance of this scam at a 25% reduced level.
It should be increasingly clear who the real beneficiaries of this legislation are, and increasingly clear who they are not (the patients). It would have been more honest to call this “Cronycare,” as the corporate medical players and their stockholders are making a bundle off of the increasingly poor taxpayers.
