So far, I have seen no revelation printed about Obamacare after the fact that wasn’t already pointed out and discussed ad nauseum before it was voted into law. The Democrats were fully aware of what they were voting for; they wanted to impose it on us anyway. Some (e.g. Nancy Pelosi) apparently thought we’d fall in love with it once we actually get to experience it.

There are important additional effects that aren't generally discussed, like the effects Obamacare on physician attitudes and motivation. All the physicians I know will always do their best for their patients, however, the amount of hours spent practicing, and the general motivation to be the best they can be has already been diminished.

It's not the money. It's the fact that despite years of training, sleepless nights, and acceptance of the lifestyle realities of being a responsible physician, the government has successfully labeled them as ‘part of the problem’, kept them away from the table in deciding the future of their own profession, cut deals with executives from pharma and insurance companies, protected the trial lawyers while avoiding litigation reform, and exploited the ugly class envy elements of our nation to essentially vilify and marginalize physicians.

In short, physicians feel like their being ‘punished’ for a crime that they didn't commit. it's demotivating, and demotivation has consequences, irrespective of good will.

I live in western PA and use a medicare advantage plan from UPMC which is both an insurance company as well as a group of well respected hospitals and associated doctors.

The care is excellent and the coverage is selected by the patient {customer} based on state of health and the amount that you choose to pay.

Unless obamacare is repealed or found unconstitutional, this coverage will not be allowed and I will be forced into medicare.

We have got to get obama out and the senate in pubbie control in 2012.

Obamacare is just a point to where many on the left want to go which is what they call “Medicare for all”.

The American people, gullible and uninformed, will be dead before they figure out truth.

Is this really a surprise to anyone? It’s the way of all socialism — at first promising that everyone will enjoy the benefits of being wealthy, or at least middle class — but in the end, forcing everyone to be poor no matter how hard they’ve worked, no matter what sacrifices or risks they’ve ventured, no matter how prudent they’ve been.... EVERYBODY is now EQUAL. Equally deprived, equally impoverished, with NO WAY OUT.

Except of course for the elite leaders. Always.

All you need to know about the Comparitive Effectiveness Panel is that its Chairman is Ezekiel Emmanuel,Rahms Brother. Ezekiel is the Author of The “Complete Lives System” Google that and Educate yourself,If you are between the ages of 15 and 45 you will get care but outside of that good luck.
This Panel was Created in the Stimulus Package with its 1.1 Billion dollar budget even before Obamacare was passed
