Just like Amazon.com, Obamacare has no idea who has paid for stuff already shipped oh, wait
Legal Insurrection ^ | January 16, 2014 | Professor William A. Jacobson

Posted on 01/16/2014 2:13:31 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

It’s bad enough that the Obama administration counts as “enrolled” people who merely have done the equivalent of the Amazon.com shopping cart — expressed the desire to have some stuff, in this case Obamacare.

Amazon.com doesn’t count stuff put in the shopping cart in the sales figures it reports — that would be securities and accounting fraud.

Amazon.com also doesn’t ship the stuff you put in the shopping cart unless you pay for it before it leaves the warehouse. That would be stupid.

But Obamacare does. It provides coverage to people who haven’t paid a penny, and worse, it has no current way of figuring out who has paid for what.

I heard a lady on Hannity the other day who had actually paid her first month's premium, had it deducted from her account, had gone to the doctor and they couldn't find her in the system. She left without treatment.

People not paying get treated. People who have paid don't. What's wrong with this system?

So Obamacare is going to ultimately end up “free”.

Obama The Clueless and his staff of nitwits, buffoons and crinminals could have saved taxpayers $1 billion dollars and avoided the embarrassment of showing the world how incompetent they are by contracting with Amazon to vend their healthcare plans for them!

Who said doctor visits to your home were a thing of the past? Sounds like you even be able to get an injection via Hellfire missile. Full service health care funded by the evil 99% that don’t pay their fair share.

This is the preview for single-payer. Eventually, everyone gets treated and then the producers get the bill for everyone thru higher taxes. Exactly what they are trying to do.

By listening to the virtually unanimous warning from thousands of professionals who by experience, training and knowledge warned that the people in charge were incompetent, and the plan was (is) doomed to failure.

Of course that the loyal opposition warned of the same fate can be dismissed as partisan blather, except for the absolute fact (not phony predictions, which all failed) that dozens of serious negative expectations unanimously came true, and the present sites are all seriously crippled by the absence of its main features. Can't possibly meet the incompetent great trumped-up features.

I went to my local Kroger pharmacy for a RX refill today. The poor girl at the window was in tears from people yelling at her all day about their "Free Stuff" not being quite what they thought.

It's a Kroger in the hood.

Ah man...I don’t know whether to feel more sorry for the tearful girl at the window or her customers who have been so cruelly misled by the regime.

I guess both have been victimized by this travesty.

Exactly why I bailed out of retail. I’ve been apologizing for the healthcare system for years. I absolutely refuse to apologize for Obama. It sucks too, because I loved my customers and I feel like I am leaving them behind to deal with this crap on their own. But I could tell it was affecting my sanity.

It was getting to a point where they could have lowered the salaries of pharmacists because we finally have enough. But now that they are chasing out the ones who have other options, that isn’t gonna happen. I was even willing to take a pay cut to get out, but God has watched over my family once again.

From what I've seen the copays and deductibles for the Obamacare plans are higher than any insurance I've ever had. Those expecting freebies get what they voted for, and I'd enjoy their reaction at having to face the reality that socialism isn't fun.

I’ve been amazed that the pharmacies around here seem to be totally normal (definitely not the hood). In fact I sat around for a long time expecting to hear some kind of intense insurance discussion. Nothing. Been by several.

In a real world, you would assume the insurance companies would be screaming by now. Well, you see, the insurance companies are covered by the risk corridor clause and they will be paid by the taxpayers.

Single payer. This whole thing is a crime that begs for punishment. Obama admin and democrat heads need to roll.

This was out and out fraud on the American people.
