Ouch: Twitter Besieged by Angry ObamaCare Insults to Kick Off the New Year
http://www.ijreview.com ^ | january 3, 2014

The media continues to assure us that everything is fixed with Obamacare now that the website works slightly better, but Americans are experiencing new and different problems with Obama’s program.

And they’re tweeting about it. Here are some I was able to find.

No, you still can’t keep your doctor:

David Prasad @earth2dave2

My old doctor's office is now telling my ACA insurance is not good enough. Now I have to find a new doctor that accepts Obamacare.

11:05 PM - 2 Jan 2014

Amber @oicStars

I cannot take my child to the doctor cuz I have high deductible & no money. They require pay. Thanks for ruining our lives Obamacare. :(

9:00 PM - 2 Jan 2014

Jordan Davies @jaydavxx

Wow Obama thanks for the health care that now makes it almost impossible for school teachers insurance plans to be accepted at any doctor

1:11 PM - 3 Jan 2014

"Elections do have consequences" AND "If you think healthcare is expensive now, wait until you see how much it's going to cost when it's free".

Those just weren't cute little bumper sticker slogans. They were tidbits of truth.

It really doesn’t matter. They’ll still vote Democrat.

All a prelude to the ‘saving graces’ of single payer.

These are the broken eggs that will make the single payer omelet.

Obamacare is a PERFECT example of the saying “Little Children shouldn’t play with things they don’t understand.”

And Obama and his acolytes ARE Little Children.

I will admit, it is a guilty pleasure of mine to log on to Facebook and read the comments at the healthcare.gov page.

Good call, in my opinion.

As it is, not enough people can absorb the deductibles. And not enough younger people are signing up. Both conditions will be "fixed" by giving subsidies to the insurance companies.

Then a couple of years from now, some government accountant will show that it will save money if you cut out the middle man (the insurance companies). Presto! Single payer.

My daughter works in admissions in a nursing home. She has to call insurance companies to verify benefits. Friday she called Humana for a patient and the call was answered by a foreign-sounding woman (possibly Chinese) who told her she could not verify the benefits yet and told her to call back in a few days. My daughter explained the patient was about to be released from the hospital and needed therapy and she had to know the benefits. The woman told her just put down we will pay 70%. My daughter said so you are guaranteeing 70%? The woman said no - we don’t know. It went downhill from there.

This is gonna be a bigger nightmare than anyone ever imagined.

You need the silver bullet to kill this O-Care. Anything less allows O-Care to survive, evolve, and mutate into our worst nightmares.

Instead of b*tching, RESIST. You know what the difference is between paying for ObamaCara and resisting? Courage!

i have family members whom say put Mom (Alzheimers at Stage 6 about 12 - 18 months into the time period that lasts around 3 years)into a nursing home. Mom does not want nursing home placement. Checked out nursing homes in area 3 year waiting list. Checked out local care providers 1 year waiting list. I am on the list for my mother as of December 27, 2013. the agency called me back on Friday and the waiting lists will be undergoing a change. One nursing home will be closed by years end, not enough money will be coming from insurance companies. There are some angry families now.

Resistance may actually be the cheapest way out too.

My company insurance is still good for another year. A co-worker had to have some lab work done last week and the lab actually gave her the option to pay cash for the work rather than use her insurance. The insurance co-pay was $50.00 and the cash option cost her $37.50. Until they declare this illegal, it may be something everyone needs to ask their providers about.

You just Know Obama is screaming at Pelosi and Reid for not getting at least ONE Republican to vote for ACA so the blame would be “Bipartisan”.

My prediction is that O will completely blame the insurance companies and then propose a healthcare “Premium” stimulus package to cover 95% of premiums and deductibles for “Hard working Americans” through November 2014. When the Republicans say no, he will blame them for dying Americans. It can NEVER be O’s fault.

Yep. The Rats will all rush in with excellent "new plans" to fix all the trouble caused by their "old plan," blame the Republicans, and the LIVs will fall right in line by November. It's too easy to predict.

I had to look that up just to see. Hugely entertaining! I love this little exchange:

William Smith: I make $32,000 a year, wife brings in $28,000 a year. The $619.00 I will have to pay is for the lowest level of coverage. The gold level was nearly a thousand a month. I live in Florida and the $619.00 was with the subsidy. I can not afford $619.00 a month no matter how hard I try. I do thank every single suggestion that was made, I am going to go without any health care it looks like and just if we get hurt or sick we will be going to the emergency room where we can't be turned down for care and not ever pay the bill. I do not want to be a person that freeloads but it's my only option I see.

Deb Mackey Tankersley: William, you and your wife make $60K a year, and you cannot afford to pay $619 per month for health insurance? Sir, something is wrong with your budget.

WOW! There's some real gold there!

“All a prelude to the ‘saving graces’ of single payer.”

Single payor or insurance bail-outs will require legislation. Not even the dictator wannabe will cross that line via executive fiat. Even if such legislation could actually get through congress, the laws of economics would prevail and the US credit rating would plummet, interest rates would rise resulting in a dollar collapse. You simply cannot add a single payor entitlement, the size of Medicaid & Medicare combined, and expect no adverse fiscal and economic consequences.
Meanwhile, as evidenced by the reduction of Medicare reimbursement, and vigorous provider compliance enforcement, it does appear the the regime is intent on cutting Medicare spending. OTOH, it might also simply be a manifestation of the 0-regime’s penchant for elderly euthanasia- killing them softly.
But, perhaps, a total collapse is exactly what the NWO Federal government wants as a pretext to martial law.

If doctors really want to start something, refuse all Obamacare insurance and accept cash only. That would put a major dent in things... It would also be a major wake up call to those who think they have “a right” to their services.

We had something similar with lab work recently.
The bill to the insurance co was $250. The self pay price was $25.

What I can’t understand is why the insurance companies weren’t screaming big time when this thing was going down. Were they really so stupid and greedy that they thought the whole objective isn’t to put them out of business?

And the doctors who supported this - just mind boggling. Apparently Dr Nancy Snyderman, NBC came out for single payer. I suppose just because you’re a doctor doesn’t mean you understand economics. But what about the UK system isn’t obvious to anyone who checks it out?

This from the UN International Health Org.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

U.S. 65%

England 46%

Canada 42%

etc. etc.

This is why I am now insurance free. Most stuff is not that expensive when you pay out of pocket. And life is risk. :-)

My daughter broke her arm in the mid-1990’s. I had $5,000 deductible so the whole thing was out of pocket. Cost: ~$275

It may be easy to predict,but your prediction will be wrong.

My friends in Poland tell me an old story of soviet times;

A father and son are walking through the forest when they come upon a razor wire fence. The son asks the father, “Who’s on the other side of the fence father.”

Father says, “We are.”
