With all the attention focused on Ted Cruzs attempt to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution, some of the laws parade of horribles are momentarily out of view. Come October 1, those horribles will resume their onward march as the laws impact on subsidizing elective abortion will begin to become clearer.
One area that deserves special scrutiny is the feature known as Multi-State Plans (MSPs). This provision of Obamacare represented a partial victory for progressive forces who favored a national, single-payer system. In its place they accepted a category of health-insurance plans managed by the Office of Personnel Management under contracts with private insurance companies. Unlike the federal employee health plans, which are available only to federal workers and their families, these MSPs are guaranteed a place on each state (and District of Columbia) health-care exchange and will therefore be available to every resident of the United States. By virtue of being offered on the exchanges, premiums paid to purchase these plans will be eligible for the generous scheme of subsidies created under Obamacare.
Passage of MSPs required one other major finesse from Democrats on the Hill. In order to deal with the abortion coverage MSPs might provide, the law stipulated that each state must have at least two MSPs and that at least one of them must be a plan that confines its abortion coverage to situations defined by the Hyde Amendment, which are, to simplify a bit, cases of rape, incest, or where the life of the mother is in danger. While the law provided no specific assurance that the other MSPs (one or possibly many more) would cover elective abortion, it has seemed clear from the start (and blisteringly obvious from observing its past patterns) that the Obama administration would ensure ...

There is simply no such thing as a Pro-Life Democrat.
Obamacare will soon be revealed to be fully subsidizing all health procedures for everyone between the ages of 0 and 200. It will be revealed to be about fleecing taxpayers of all income levels of whatever $$$ is needed so that everyone gets the exact same health care as the richest people in the US. And if doctors don’t like it, well, there’s always SWAT teams to *encourage* them to go int he right direction.
America is hanging in the balance!

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Which means instead of the doctor or even the insurance company making our medical decisions, it is the faceless bureaucrat with an agenda to transform our country into a Marxist paradise who is making the decision.
So, we will be denied or forced to have procedures not in our best interest. And we will be paying for abortions and euthanasia procedures for other people, so that we all will be paying for the new Marxist paradise our leaders have planned for us.
No Christian can morally be part of Obamacare.
Where are all the rioting Christians?
(yes, I have a plank in my eye...)
Another way of putting it is that the government has eliminated a competitive open market and replaced it with a mandatory monopoly. Since the government is now the purchaser, it alone decides what is purchased and what is not. MRIs? Too expensive - won’t be needing any of those. Hip replacements? Not necessary. Oxycontin will take away the pain and it is much cheaper.
I predicted that obamacare would force us to pay for abortions, aids treatment, sex ‘change’ operations, and euthanasia.
For those Republicans who think that Ted Cruz is just too rash, it has not hit them yet what the entire White House Marxist Regime has planned for us all.
Every way it can.
It’s a testimonial to the character of conservatives that they are trying to save the lives of future Democrat voters.
