Welcome to Amerika

The question I have had about Obamacare from the beginning is this—and I ask it again this morning:

What is there in this plan that incentivizes any American
to take greater personal responsibility for his or her own health?

As far as I can tell, nothing.

With regard to incentives, this new era in America reminds me of what Soviet workers used to say during the heyday of the Soviet Union: "We pretend to work and they pretend to pay us." In other words, "Why bother?"
