Strategy shifts away from defunding Obamacare to simply allowing it to self-destruct

Alex Jones posed a question to me during an appearance on his live radio show Friday. The question was whether those of us opposed to Obamacare should stop trying to politically defund the project and simply stand back and let the thing self-destruct on its own. Now that Healthcare.gov has been exposed as being written in disastrously bad computer code requiring years to repair, any attempt by Republicans to interfere with the funding of the system will only cause the inevitable implosion of it to be blamed on them.
Far better to stand back, the thinking now goes, and let Obama fully “own” the disastrous Obamacare crash that’s now a certainty.
Thirty-six states use the Healthcare.gov online exchange, and as we’ve covered here on Natural News, the underlying computer code powering Healthcare.gov is absolutely nightmarish in its ineptitude. Myself, John McAfee and many other highly-experienced computer experts have all gone public with our assertions that Healthcare.gov has a near-zero chance of functioning smoothly by January 1, 2014, the deadline when Americans are supposed to have purchased insurance or face IRS fines.
The realization that Healthcare.gov can’t possibly function by January 1 means, in essence, Republicans have already won the battle over Obamacare if they could only manage not to somehow get blamed for the impending collapse of it. Given that Democrats have a near-monopoly over the mainstream media, however, Republicans will be blamed by default no matter what goes wrong.
