The Obamacare Chaos Strategy’s Outlines Begin to Emerge: De facto single-payer…

On Christmas Eve, it will be three years and nine months since President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, into law. […]

Chaos skeptics will have an especially difficult time explaining away the administration’s December 12 move. That day, it announced that it would “ask” insurance companies to cover virtually any patient who requests medical care in early 2014, whether or not there is any tangible evidence that they have paid their monthly premiums, or have even enrolled. […] It would appear that doctors, hospitals and other medical providers who have agreed to serve Obamacare patients will also have to see and treat any patient who claims to have enrolled, regardless of whether that provider is in the related insurance plan’s network. […]

What will happen if their (the health insurance industry) conduct doesn’t meet the administration’s arbitrary and ever-changing definition of acceptability? Ask Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky of Obama’s home state. They’ll exploit any resistance as an excuse to slow but surely accomplish the left’s Holy Grail goal: “put the private insurance industry out of business” and impose a de facto single-payer, completely government-controlled regime on the entire nation. …

The Obamacare Chaos Strategy’s Outlines Begin to Emerge: De facto single-payer, by any means necessary.
Of course, this fact has been repeated to death, at least in the media that remains conservative. Now will the rest of the USA speed up their rather-stilted-at-present backlash?

Only in the bizarro world of liberals is failure rewarded with more of what obviously didn’t work the first time.

There are going to be so many law suits files over this kind of behavior.

ObamaCare has been ruled a tax and Obama is arbitrarily imposing taxes and providing tax exemptions on a whim.

Old news.

Obama states he is a proponent of single payer health care. It’s from 2008.

Of course it’s old news. Up until the time it’s implemented, that is, and then suddenly nobody heard of it before.

Single-payer? I seriously doubt whether Americans will countenance MORE govt intrusion into healthcare. Americans are ready now to tar and feather this Boob and throw him and his wife back to Kenya.


Years after the billion dollar buildup, months after the botched rollout, weeks after the costly fixits, Obama claims enrollments of 365,000......this in a country of 315 Million people.

Where are the "desperate" millions Boobamba said were "crying" for healthcare? The ones he said the system didn't work for? Why aren't the desperate millions signing up?

We can only conclude this America-hating Boob does not see himself as president of a thriving America----in his Chicago-deluded mind, he represents the ne'er do wells, slackers, layabeds, dumbos, ignoramuses, gutter snipes, bums and pan-handlers.....and a handful of deserving people who slipped through the cracks.

The only conclusion is that this vengeful Boob is deliberately punishing hard-working Americans b/c they worked hard and have healthcare THAT THEY LIKE:

(1) he deliberately upended the healthcare system leaving millions unprotected,

(2) he nationalized 1/6 of the US economy,

(3) he spent billions of tax dollars for nothing, spending good money after bad, and,

(4) he imposed multiple travesties on doctors, hospitals, insurers, health providers, and hard-working taxpayers.

TOTALITARIANCARE: Make it up as you go…roll out whatever, whenever...

Where are the articles of impeachment against Obama, Congress & USSC?

The “supreme” court sanctioned a PRE-MEDITATED LIE, that was supported in lock-step by a party of deceivers, and now is funded by compliant opposition party.

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

The insurance companies knew who they were talking with before they made the deal. The ones participating in ObamaCare deserve whatever destruction hits them.

Why the President didn't model health care reform on a system that actually works like that of Germany (who's had universal health care since the 1880's!) bothers me to no end....

There's a slight flaw in dip$shit's plan... the people have already seen that dip$shit and the Demonic Party could screw up a rock fight with this wet ream to enslave all Americans, O-hole-don't-care. Why would they be willing to believe more of dip$hit's minions would improve upon this disaster?

Bottom line is everyone with an ounce of sense was right... why would you trust the same a$$ clowns who can't even deliver mail efficiently, effectively deliver your medical services?

Because he wants a single payer system like Canada. Obamacare was meant to slowly slide into single payer as insurance companies dropped out over the next decade. His problem is that the system was done so badly that it is crashing now before it is too late to turn back. He set the bridge on fire when we first stepped on it rather than after we were almost across it.

And just wait till they start issuing orders to the doctors to match client with the care required....and prescriptions....don't forget all those complex prescription orders.

I see not just amputations on the wrong limb....but on the wrong patient.

and don't expect quick response for a broken arm:

His treatment was delayed initially because he was smoking....and later because he didn't quit smoking.

And so you have an acute appendix....?

Mark Wattson, 35, from Swindon may have been the victim of botched surgery after he had to have his appendix removed twice

To his shock, surgeons from the same team told him that not only was his appendix still inside him, but it had ruptured - a potentially fatal complication.

In a second operation it was finally removed, leaving Mr Wattson fearing another organ might have been taken out during the first procedure.

The blunder has left Mr Wattson jobless, as bosses at the shop where he worked did not believe his story and sacked him.

Mr Wattson told of the moment he realised there had been a serious mistake.

'I was lying on a stretcher in terrible pain and a doctor came up to me and said that my appendix had burst,' he said.

'I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I told these people I had my appendix out just four weeks earlier but there it was on the scanner screen for all to see.

'I thought, "What the hell did they slice me open for in the first place?"

'I feel that if the surgery had been done correctly in the first place I wouldn't be in the mess I am today. I'm disgusted by the whole experience.'

Mr Wattson first went under the knife on July 7 after experiencing severe abdominal pain for several weeks. He was discharged but exactly a month later he had to dial 999 after collapsing in agony. Mr Wattson

Mr Wattson was readmitted to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon after his appendix ruptured.

130,000 elderly patients killed every year by ‘death pathway’, claims leading UK doctor

by Thaddeus Baklinski Thu Jun 21, 2012 10:02 EST Tags: euthanasia, patrick pullicino, uk

LONDON, June 21, 2012 ( - An eminent British doctor told a meeting of the Royal Society of Medicine in London that every year 130,000 elderly patients that die while under the care of the National Health Service (NHS) have been effectively euthanized by being put on the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP), a protocol for care of the terminally ill that he described as a “death pathway.”

Sit back and enjoy your Obamacare.

No they won't! Exact percentages are a guess, but:

50% of the population is looking forward to immediate 'Free Stuff'
50% of the rest are idealogically committed to government control
The rest - you lot reading this - oppose it but are in the minority.

Good Luck with that!

If you had a cancelled (because of Obamacare) "crappy" can now buy it again.

If you never had insurance, you aren't allowed to buy one of those "crappy" policies.

But will the insurance companies still charge the same rate as before? They have "added expenses" now.
