Posted on 10/28/2013 4:27:53 AM PDT by IBD editorial writer
Revolt: In 1989, angry seniors forced the repeal of a costly new Medicare benefit just a year after it passed. It's time for the millions now being savaged by ObamaCare to rise up and do the same.
When he was selling ObamaCare to the nation, President Obama said: "We will keep this promise to the American people. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away."
Across the country, millions of Americans are now discovering this was an expensive lie.

I think this guy just wants it to fail.
Of course he does. Then we can move to a single payer system and total control of the US Health Care system by the federal government. And of course the complete unionization of all people involved in the health care industry.
Just keep reminding Americans what the Obamatons want you to forget: E-V-E-R-Y single Democrat voted for this pipedream——and no Republicans supported it.
Sap-happy Oboner touted the law’s aim to provide “free” healthcare -— but that cockasmamie plan was ditched—— Obamatons stealthily deleted “free” from its website (one that works?).
Course, they’re now forced to pack the boondoggle w/ Medicaid enrollees.
ANOTHER REMINDER Who pays for this? You do.
Of course he does!Then what would stand in the way of”Single-Payer”?
I love yanking the Left's chain with that one.
Yes it is officially labeled Obamacare like two decades ago it was called Hillarycare. I am not suggesting a substitute.
Using one of the left's all time favorite pejorative expressions against one of their all time favorite laws is proper justice.
BZZZZZZZT! Wrong answer...the time to get mad as hell (and stay mad as hell) was three or four years ago. To use the overused cliche yet again, the GOP kicked this can down the road until there was no more road. Obamacare should've been derailed and/or defunded four years ago. Of course, the GOP didn't have Ted Cruz in the Senate back then.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
——No one will take it away.-——
Strangely believe it, my Doctor’s medical group took away my Medicare Advantage by refusing to accept it in 2014.
Somewhere lurking the background is Obamacare. I must now find coverage with a different but acceptable Medicare Advantage Provider.
Money may not be much of an issue because the plans are all similar but I will have to set up the new web sites and have perscriptions transferred etc etc. PITA
The writer or Bowbama? Or, both?
While this is a nice sentiment, and keeping a promise made would be a wonderful thing from any politician, it’s not likely going to happen.
The insurance companies have seen the future, and if you believe things can go back to the way they were, you might want to harness that methane exiting the hind quarters of your unicorn (alternative, renewable power?).
The ONLY true solution to this mess is to get FedGov COMPLETELY out of the health concerns of the American people.
No, there must be legislation limiting Tort rewards to lawyers.
The limits should be passed and then at least one year to pass to see how things settle out and costs diminish. The legal thieves must be removed from health care first and foremost.
(both plaintiff and defense lawyers are guilty of the disgusting practice)
Very simple, low energy solution:
1. The ultimate in passive resistance, no one participate, change all W4s so no gets a refund that can be used to collect the tax.
2. 2014, vote out anyone on both sides that did not voice opposition to this law. Silent non-participation in the debate equals supporting the law moving forward.
Doctors should just go on strike until Obamacare is repealed...
one certainly hope so.
I See you are NEW HERE. A Troll Perhaps????
“I think this guy just wants it to fail.”/
“The writer or Bowbama? Or, both? “
I just used the “wants it to fail” talking point because that has basically become a reflex statement for Democrat talking heads. We do need those who are being adversely affected by this law to rise up in anger.
One problem here is that virtually all of those who are being adversely affected are busy working for a living, while the increasing numbers of those who are benefitting from Obamacare by signing up for Medicaid or getting big subsidies have all the time in the world to stage protests.
I believe that Obama does want the current roll-out to fail, and to fail miserably. Obama has shown over and over again that he does his best work enacting “emergency” measures during crises that he has created. What Obama is doing here is a masterpiece in Leftist social engineering, since as the ACA fails it causes Medicaid to expand into the SIngle Payer system that was always the ultimate goal.
As far as the website goes, I don’t think its failure was necessarily part of the plan, he just didn’t care one way or the other and the natural incompetence and corruption of his administration took over. The real failure will occur once the website is running smoothly, the health insurance companies implode and Medicaid become the entitlement to end all entitlements.
I’m starting to like Obamacare. Millions that voted for free stuff found out they are the ones paying the free stuff. Yeah it still sucks, but man I love the show of watching the idiots finally realize what the democrats have been doing to me for years.
I keep hearing people mention that, “Single payer system” what does that mean? That people will have no insurance and pay all costs out of pocket?
-—— “He’s (Obama) just ‘too talented’ to do what ‘ordinary people’ do.” - Valerie Jarrett -——
That would be “individual payer” and would lead to real market reform.
No, “single payer” means that the government (taxpayer) pays for all medical costs of all people and therefore determines who gets what medical care.
Oh God, I could see where that would lead. So in other words it would be complete tyranny over healthcare. Actually I have a high suspicion this whole thing is just one big scam to bring tyranny in through the back door. This crap about fines being classified as a tax. They say the fines can only be collected through tax refunds but what if they did away with that, and then raised the health rates and fines through the roof? People would be unable to afford Obamacare and as a result you would have millions owing fines which they could raise to astronomical levels and there you go: You would have people enslaved to the state - The IRS could move in seize property, put liens on accounts, seize paychecks - pretty much everything that comes with tyranny, the state deciding whether you live or die nice stuff like that.
Inadvisable protests anymore, since any such actions likely be regarded as "terroristic threats" and vigorously repelled with elite guards and drones.
What they want to do, and what every liberal’s visceral desire is to do,
is to use the State to punish/exterminate those who oppose their ideology.
Controlling the healthcare system would fulfill that dream.
Welcome to the present.
One reason why I think single-payer won't occur anytime soon is because Obama's massive ego couldn't handle admitting failure.
It's why I will never become an AARP member, and toss out every piece of mail I get from that organization. (Actually, what I should do is send them back the postage-paid envelope ... empty ... that comes with every solicitation I get in the mail. At least they'd have to waste a few pennies each time I did it!)
Empty? No, enclose all the literature they sent you. Add some grocery store fliers, enough to bump the postage up a notch.
Yes, can you imagine what political favors could be given? Given to donors, special interest groups, etc? It would actually bring the "death panels" forward to a much earlier age. They wouldn't have to wait for conservatives to get old before denying treatment; they could do it right now. It would change the voting dynamic, because with government as the sole source for healthcare, even Republicans would have to run on providing healthcare to people. Their platform would probably claim to offer the best care, but with efficient, streamlined costs. The media would label that as draconian, and the two Republicans left in Congress would be left as tokens of the "old regime" in the country that once was. (In truth, even they would be disposed of...no tyrant leaves evidence of previous history.)
“One reason why I think single-payer won’t occur anytime soon is because Obama’s massive ego couldn’t handle admitting failure.”
You really think the Obama is going to be reluctant to admit the failure of the greedy insurance companies, the failure of the heartless, sabotaging Republicans and the failure of the free-market system in general? I have no doubt that this is how Obama will spin this, there will be no personal failure involved. Besides Obama freely admitted wanting a Single Payer system before he ran for president, but he did say that this would have to be accomplished gradually.
This guy has never once admitted failure, but he’s an old pro at assigning blame.
It's already working too... I've heard from a couple of 20-30 year olds in the past month, who's rates have doubled or more... who are already saying, "Screw this! Let's just go to single payer"..
These are people who HAVE BEEN, mostly conservative in their thinking. They're ready to throw in the towel. :-(
Sad...that these younger folks would rather throw in the towel for Socialism, rather than fight for the liberty and freedom our forefathers fought so hard for.
