The free market healthcare system we had before Obamacare was taking care of those who were sick. It was doing it the way the liberals contend they want it done, by spreading the wealth. The free market healthcare system paid for those that did not have insurance, when people went to the hospital and were unable to pay, as required by law they (the hospitals) have to treat people who come to the emergency room, regardless of ability to pay. The hospital and it’s medical associates would then charge each paying customer a little more, thereby spreading the cost among their many customers.
The democrats however, when they talk about these people going to the hospital and not paying, they then say “but, I don’t want to have to pay for your, or their, healthcare.” For the deniers out there, I have heard them say it too many times in the last year or so, for you to even try to deny it.
The liberal progressive democrats do not like this system as evidenced by Michelle Obama and the University of Chicago Medical Centers patient dumping scheme where they received a good deal of justly opprobrious press over its policy of “redirecting” low-income patients to community hospitals while reserving its own beds for well-heeled patients requiring highly profitable procedures. Substantial coverage was given to a recent indictment of the program by the American College of Emergency Physicians. ACEP’s president, Dr. Nick Jouriles, released a statement suggesting that the initiative comes “dangerously close to ‘patient dumping,’ a practice made illegal by the Emergency Medical Labor and Treatment Act, and reflected an effort to ‘cherry pick’ wealthy patients over poor.”
They want the government to impose even more egregious taxes on the middle class and the so-called wealthy. Those making more than 200k (according to democrats) who turn out to be small business owners, because the people who are really wealthy are like all enterprises including government, they are going to pass the costs onto someone else or protect what they have from being further encroached upon.
No, liberals say I don’t want to have to pay for that person going to the hospital, I want government to impose a tax system by which we can pick the winners and losers, where we can impose our idea of social justice on those evil people who don’t want to have to pay for other peoples healthcare insurance. Those who have gamed the system too long by lying to the American people, and have forced people to not be able to insure themselves.
It’s like the LA Times opinion piece where the liberal was all for the Obamacare law until they found out they were going to have to pay for it. I think the quote went something like “I was all for the law until I learned I was going to have to pay for it”. As we are finding out, and as was predicted by everyone on the right. The Patient Protection and Affordable Healthcare Act does nothing to protect the patient as evidenced from the lack of security testing on the healthcare.gov website to people losing the healthcare insurance plans and doctors they were happy with by the millions. Nor is it affordable as the liberal in the LA Times story found out along with millions of others.
Obama said one of the most incredibly incompetent things I’ve heard from him in his last press conference on Nov. 14th. He said “What we’re also discovering is, that, insurance is complicated to buy.” How out of touch can you be? This is what you get with people who have never had to exist outside of academia and government. How could they not know insurance was complicated to buy? Every single one of the intellectual professors who authored Obamacare, that I’ve heard speak about it. It is obvious they should never have been given the task of designing a system they have never had any involvement with, outside of abstract studies. It is incredible and incredulous how out of touch they truly are with the reality of humanity.
The democrats started this debate by saying there were an estimated 30 million before the Obamacare law without insurance, then they went to 40 million, then to 50 million. Now they are saying there are not only 50 million without insurance, but that all 50 million of them are sick, implying they’ll have access to healthcare for the first times in their lives. What they have really done is narrow your choices, your choice of insurance coverage and your choice of doctors, hospitals, and medical services. All of this from the so-called party of choice, sure they want to give you choices, their choices, not your own.
The lies will never stop with progressives, because they have to lie to get their policies passed by the American people. They have also shown their true feelings for minorities, by their flippant dismissive attitudes toward the 5 million Americans who have already lost their insurance due to the regulations imposed by the Obamacare law.
Out of the 20-30 million Americans who did not have insurance to begin with, most of them were young and healthy who do not need large healthcare plans. I seriously doubt out of that 20-30 million we were first informed about, that even 5 million of them didn’t have insurance because they wanted or needed it and could not pay for it.
As I pointed out months ago, the Obamacare law was designed to make the people lose their insurance on the individual market and the employer markets because the Obamacare law needs the people who already pay for insurance to be kicked out of their plans and be forced into the Obamacare market. They could not depend on the people who are not already paying for medical insurance to suddenly run out and buy insurance just because of the Obamacare law. No, they needed at least those on the individual market to come into the Obamacare exchanges to get the ball rolling, and boosting the number of enrollees by 5 or 10 million in the first year would help convince the American people that the law was working. This fact is evidenced by the authors of the law themselves, as professor Ezekiel Emanuel admitted the fact, they needed those people to be forced into the exchanges.
I used to think democrats studied history to learn how to implement harmful policies of the past to hurt America, it’s not that, they’re not that smart. In fact they are so devoid of intelligence, they do not realize they just have the same spirit as other despotic reprobate peoples before them, it therefore causes them to use the same tactics and rhetoric.
Cyber security experts say Healthcare.gov website for Obamacare is less safe and secure than it was in October.
They are also finally reporting something I told my family a few months ago. Not only can hackers get the information that you submit to the healthcare.gov website. Every computer system that healthcare.gov website is tied into is vulnerable because hackers can use the Obamacare website as a doorway into all the other systems, i.e. IRS, DHS, HHS, State computer systems, you name it.
Therefore every Americans information is vulnerable. For an identity thief this could not be better, they now have a way to make a complete profile on you, your assets, addresses, bank accounts, everything!
It is incomprehensible that a political party is so invested in a program that they would allow anywhere near this threat level to the American people and their information.
You keep hearing people say they need the young and healthy to buy into the exchanges to make Obamacare work. Why then does the law allow young adults to stay on their parents healthcare plans until they are 26 years of age? They were never counting on the young and healthy, they were depending on the millions and millions of people that have lost, are losing, or will be losing their current medical insurance plans to be kicked into the exchanges.
This was never about healthcare, this Obamacare law was simply about control. I do hope one of the consequences of this incredibly intrusive and abusive law is, that it will force out of business, those insurance companies who thought it was a good idea to join with government in this fascist manner because it forced with threat of penalty, the American people to buy those same insurers products, just as it is now forcing many small business people out of business and keeping others from growing the businesses they are able to keep. This would be the correct form of social justice!
See liberals, democrats or progressives are never really for, the things they say they are for, they consistently tell you the exact opposite of the truth. They have tried to destroy the best healthcare system in the world because they wanted to control the outcomes. The free market was doing a more efficient and cheaper job of spreading the wealth around with their policies, than the government will ever be able to do with theirs.
If the democrats and Obama anticipated the slow or low sign up for Obamacare, why would they now need to extend the 2014/15 sign up period from 45 days to 60 days and move the date of the beginning of the sign up period from 2 weeks before the election to 2 weeks after?
Democrat actions on Obamacare have proved beyond doubt; Liberals think it’s okay to force someone to do something that is good for them. Christian principles are good for people. Should people be forced to live by those principles, faith, prayer, church? No, and they should not be forced by government to do other things their conscience informs them is wrong, or that their hearts are against!
And no, I wasn’t serious in questioning whether people should be forced to adopt christian principles, God, nor Jesus would approve of that. I am serious however, just as people should not be forced into religion, they certainly should not be forced into anything else!
As anyone can see they are making it up as they go and it’s anything goes with them when it comes to the lengths they will go to screw the American people
UPDATE: Now we have Jonathan Gruber one of the main Obamacare architects validating everything conservative Christians and TeaParty Patriots were warning about the Obamacare law were and are true.
UPDATE: Now since the mid-term elections of 2014 we have democrat Sen. Chucky Schumer coming out trying to save his job, saying democrats were wrong to do Obamacare, along with democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer trying to revise history and distance himself from the disastrous effects of the Obamacare law or Affordable Care Act as they like to mistakenly call it. I won’t even go into democrat Sen. Mary Landreu of Louisiana trying to save her job. Isn’t it amazing how the rats always desert the ship after they demo it, thus the name democrats.
