Late last year Obama finally got around to admitting that you couldnt actually keep your insurance policy under Obamacare. This after years of telling the country that we would be able to keep our policies. Now the President is finally getting around to telling us what we already surmised: We wont be able to keep our doctor either. The President is actually running around the country trying to spin fewer choices, suggesting that its a cost savings. Interestingly before Obamacare those with insurance could afford the doctor they wanted. Its only under Obamacare that they cant afford their doctor. Yet in Obamas mind the problem is the doctor, not his signature law.
The President is desperate to get people to sign up for Obamacare before the March 31st deadline. Theyre offering cash prizes to sign up. Mrs. Obama claims shes nagging us because she loves us. Considering that there is no penalty for not signing up, the President youll recall unilaterally suspended the individual mandate, the deadline has become meaningless. People werent signing up anyway, the cost of Obamacare is too great. Cash prizes, Lebron James and Obama comedy sketches havent been enough to get people to sign up. Not even the prospect of Mrs. Obama not nagging us anymore isnt enough.
The reason why people arent signing up is simple: Obamacare isnt a good deal. It provides less specialized care than the old plans. It requires people to pay for bells and whistles they dont want or need. The premiums are sky high, the deductibles are even higher. Under the semi-free market before Obamacare, people had the freedom to pick and choose what went into their plan. Under Obamacare the Federal government has decided what goes into a healthcare plan. Consumers are left with few options concerning what actually goes into their policy. Price differences only reflect doctor, network and hospital access.
Obama clearly doesnt understand how the free market works. He honestly believed that government could create three healthcare policies written by experts that would be better than what the free market offered. He thought people would flock to these new policies because he doesnt understand how demand works. Under the previous system people could have dozens of different policy choices, they could pick the plan that best suited their needs. Obama seems to think that health insurers simply dictate policies and thus the government could do the same thing. In reality, consumers dictated policies by buying policies that suited their needs and interests and not buying policies that didnt suit their needs or interests.
For some people health insurance itself doesnt suit their needs or interests. Obama has never acknowledged this as a possibility, he always presented the uninsured as poor people who cant afford insurance. In fact, there are plenty of unmarried men under the age of 30 who are healthy and dont need a comprehensive health insurance policy. Obama and the left dont care that this group might have better things to spend their money on. Obama is after control and power because he believes he and the Federal government are better at making our decisions for us. After all, were too stupid to decide for ourselves what goes into our health insurance policies. The President knows best, which is of course why no one is buying Obamacare who doesnt absolutely have to.
Normally in such FRAUD, those creating it are held
But here, with 300 million victims (excluding, of course,
the EXEMPT), the FRAUD was not even read before it was
deemed ordered by Pelosi and the criminal enterprise,
known as the DNC — for all others (except Moslems).
They’re for the middleclass!! you know the guys and gals that get up everyday at 4 am put in 12 to 16 hours a day come home and do it all oover again and GET NOTHING FOR FREE but are ordered to pay for the bums of society and thier keepers.
It will make a great ad.
Obama admits he can’t find his ass with both hands, GPS and a flashlight.
Obama is a proven liar.
The only thing ObamaCare does successfully is impose socialism. You can’t keep your doctor, you can’t keep your policy, it won’t save most families $2,500 per year, and Obama has done by edict what was Ted Cruz was vilified for. Plus, the CBO says that, even if it were implemented as the law was written, there would still be 30 million Americans without insurance after ten years.
Absent a revolution, we’re hosed.
Treat your patient's medical needs. Maintain your patients privacy. Pass on your medical knowledge to the next doctor.
Today we have the Hypocratic Oath. Tell the government everything and provide the medical services we concoct as described in the this 2800 page documents!!!
No one on the left wants to admit that Obama is a fascist. To admit as such would be to admit that fascism is a product of the left, which it is. They’ve been denying this since 1941.
