Obama Admits You Canít Keep Your Doctor
Leo McNeil Blog ^ | March 14, 2014 | Leo McNeil

Late last year Obama finally got around to admitting that you couldn’t 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 won’t be able to keep our doctor either. The President is actually running around the country trying to spin fewer choices, suggesting that it’s a “cost savings.” Interestingly before Obamacare those with insurance could afford the doctor they wanted. It’s only under Obamacare that they can’t afford their doctor. Yet in Obama’s 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. They’re offering cash prizes to sign up. Mrs. Obama claims she’s nagging us because she “loves” us. Considering that there is no penalty for not signing up, the President you’ll recall unilaterally suspended the individual mandate, the deadline has become meaningless. People weren’t signing up anyway, the cost of Obamacare is too great. Cash prizes, Lebron James and Obama comedy sketches haven’t been enough to get people to sign up. Not even the prospect of Mrs. Obama not nagging us anymore isn’t enough.

The reason why people aren’t signing up is simple: Obamacare isn’t a good deal. It provides less specialized care than the old plans. It requires people to pay for bells and whistles they don’t 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 doesn’t 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 doesn’t 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 didn’t suit their needs or interests.

For some people health insurance itself doesn’t suit their needs or interests. Obama has never acknowledged this as a possibility, he always presented the uninsured as poor people who can’t afford insurance. In fact, there are plenty of unmarried men under the age of 30 who are healthy and don’t need a comprehensive health insurance policy. Obama and the left don’t 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, we’re 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 doesn’t absolutely have to.

Normally in such FRAUD, those creating it are held
ACCOUNTABLE.

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).

Obama admits he can’t find his ass with both hands, GPS and a flashlight.

Obamacare was designed to fail so we could have commie style healthcare. Same size fits all.

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.

For 2000 years the Doctors lived by the Hippocratic oath.

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.
