Obamacare’s fatal flaw is that is requires young unmarried men to sign up for what is essentially a bachelor tax. Young unmarried men have no reason to do that even with the fines for not having health insurance. The White House has been looking for ways to boost Obamacare enrollment, and their latest effort targeting young unmarried men is #GeeksGetCovered. Supposedly, #GeeksGetCovered is a campaign to show “geeks”, the guys likely to create tech startups, that they should sign up for Obamacare. The White House says that Obamacare will increase the creation of startups since geeks won’t have to worry about health insurance. The reality is actually the opposite as this comment from Slashdot, a major tech website, says:
I was on my own with a full-time consultancy, but I scaled it back to off-hours and went back to a forty-hour-a-week corporate job for the health insurance. The cost of individual health care plans was insane, and the crappy ACA plans provide worse coverage with fewer providers – and they’re even more expensive!
I really think what the feds are up to here is trying to kill off as many individual and small business operators as possible. After all, it’s a lot easier to monitor and tax large corporate entities than it is to chase after a bunch of little ones.
The best health insurance for geeks building startups (or self employed people) is a catastrophic plan or a plan that is tailored for their exact needs. For anyone starting a new business, keeping health insurance costs to the bare minimum is important because it will take time for a new business to generate profit. Obamacare makes such plans illegal. Instead of making easier to start a new business, Obamacare makes it considerably more expensive and more difficult.
Most geeks who are going to create a new startup are young unmarried men. A health insurance plan under Obamacare covers a multitude of things they don’t need. What these geeks pay for under Obamacare is not health insurance for themselves but a wealth transfer from themselves to women. Geeks wanting to create their own startup will either decide not to create a new startup or go without health insurance altogether. What the White House is hoping for is the former. Forcing geeks to work at large corporations benefits Obamacare. This is because a large corporation will enroll them in an Obamacare approved health insurance plan even if they don’t want to be enrolled. Despite the fines, anyone without health insurance can still choose to not get a health insurance plan from the Obamacare exchanges. That choice doesn’t exist for anyone working at a large corporation so large corporations are the best way to enforce Obamacare on young unmarried men. A large corporation will make sure that geeks who otherwise would be at their own startup pay the bachelor tax of Obamacare. (As a side benefit to the White House, forcing geeks into working at a large corporation also makes them more likely to work on projects like Healthcare.gov instead of something new that expands the economy.)
This is another example of how Obamacare is anti-MGTOW (men going their own way). When it comes to employment, many men go their own way and avoid feminized large corporations by staring their own business, becoming self-employed, etc. Obamacare was (unintentionally) created to deal with the reality of increasing numbers of men GTOW and who are a part of the marriage strike. It is no surprise that Obamcare is anti-MGTOW with respect to employment by trying to keep young single men working at feminized large corporations.
