Schrödinger's Obamacare

Schrödinger's Obamacare is a thought experiment, often described as a paradox, devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935. It illustrates what he saw as the problem of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics applied to citizens and voters under the Marxist Democrats in 2010 Washington D.C.:

One can even set up quite ridiculous cases. A U.S. citizen is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following device (which must be secured against direct interference by the oppressed individual): in a Geiger counter, there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small that perhaps in the course of the hour, one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none; if it happens, the counter tube discharges, and through a relay releases a hammer that shatters a small flask of hydrocyanic acid which drops onto a plastic sheaf covering the Obamacare bill, thus revealing its contents which have never before been read by any conniving congressman, pompous senator, dictating president, elite academic, media know-it-all or dumbed-down citizen in its entirety. In fact - the authors and architects of this monstrous 3,000 page monstrous piece of legislation, who are the Washington bureaucrats and insiders, have only been permitted to scribe one page each, thus protecting them from contamination and possible early death before the bill is even passed. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the citizen, who is also a voter, still lives if meanwhile no atom has decayed, thus setting off the sequence of events whereby the bill is read, and eventually becomes law, and is implemented by the bureaucrats, thus ensuring the total destruction of the U.S. economy, the U.S. Constitution and the republic, for which it stands, and the degradation of this once proud and great nation into a third world socialistic dictatorial banana republic. The psi-function of the entire system would express this by having in it the living and dead voter (pardon the expression) mixed or smeared out in equal parts.

It is typical of these cases that an indeterminacy originally restricted to the atomic domain becomes transformed into macroscopic indeterminacy, which can then be resolved by direct observation. That prevents us from so naively accepting as valid a "blurred model" for representing reality. In itself, it would not embody anything unclear or contradictory. There is a difference between a shaky or out-of-focus photograph and a snapshot of clouds and fog banks.[3]

The subtle difference between the dead citizen and the alive citizen cannot be directly observed by an outside observer, based on the Uncertainty Principle.
