Krauthammer on Healthcare.gov: 'All hell's going to break loose'
FoxNews ^ | 1/22/2014

Posted on 01/23/2014 11:46:36 AM PST by RoosterRedux

Charles Krauthammer predicted Wednesday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that "all hell's going to break loose" if the administration can't fix the problems with the Healthcare.gov website by mid-March.

"Right now the insurers are guessing at the subsidy, so all of this is on the honor system and it can be wildly off," Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor said. "If they undershoot, the insurers are going to go bust. If they overshoot, the government is going to be stuck with a huge bill."

In other words, a path to single payer by the end of 2014 DOES exist.

Here’s my free advice to healthcare insurers -

have the plans that people want “on deck” and ready to sell,
as well as TV ads telling people you have them available.

People will buy them, doctors will accept them, and the gov’t can go pound sand.

If private insurance companies aren’t bankrupt within a year, ACORN and SEIU will surround their HQ buildings with gasoline and burn them to the ground.

That’s what we get for allowing a foreign agent to usurp the presidency.

Charles Krauthammer's problem is the focus on the damn website. That's the LEAST of the problems.

Fixing the website would be about as effective as having a nice functioning cash register is a restaurant selling sh*t sandwiches and forcing people at gunpoint to buy them.

If Kruthhammer’s prediction of the ACA blowing up (the purpose of their plan all along) by the end of March and in conjunction with the organized citizens uniting and marching (American Spring) on DC on May 16, 2014, this current government thugacracy will likely take some sort of action before hand to quell both. No, I don’t have a crystal ball but nor am I blind.

Yes, and every thread about Obamacare is guaranteed to have at least a dozen comments that state that, as though it's something that's never occurred to anyone before.

One thing that is rarely stated around these parts, is that repeating "single payer" like a daily religious mantra, will only help to ensure that it becomes reality. A self-fulfilling prophecy, if you will.

If every Freeper posted, "over my dead body!", there's a strong chance it would go the other way. You simply can't win when half your team chants, "we're doomed", all day and night.

Nope.

That might have been their original intent, but they’ve bungled it so badly the vast majority of Americans want the federal government to have NOTHING to do with health care. As FReeper HiTechRedneck put it so well, they wanted “a soft fail, not a spectacular fall off the edge of the aircraft carrier fail.”

Unpaid taxes seemed to be the least of his worries, and turned out to be his most most vulnerable angle.

All Hell is going to break loose?

I doubt it. Obama has achieved the defacto nationalization and politicization of our nations health care system, and we are no longer a nation of freedom.

If you are dying and want to prolong your life, you want to be a leftist. As a conservative you will get no end of life care. The left will. Thats what rationing health care will mean. Death Panels are exactly what Obamacare will be about.

And now Obama and his band of incompetents have to actually manage something.

This is akin to electing the Three Stooges as Mayor of NYC.

A man who cannot direct his staff to build a website cannot direct the healthcare of a nation.

He will be lynched before this is over.

In a few years it will be all single payer.

It will be like getting your healthcare from the DMV with all the employees being members of the SEIU and it will 3 times as slow, 4 times as indifferent, and 5 times as expensive. Oh, and as an added benefit, it will be politicized, too.

What is a good country to flee to before they revoke my passport and start my prosecution for being a capitalist saboteur, hooligan, and greedy wrecker?

.

Perhaps, this is WHY?:

Bad news for us aging folks. *Your hospital Medicare admittance has
just changed under ObamasCare*. You must be admitted by your primary
Physician in order for Medicare to pay for it! If you are admitted by
an emergency room doctor it is treated as outpatient care where
hospital costs are not covered. This is only the tip of the iceberg
for Obama Care. Just wait to see what happen in this year and 2014!

*YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS... At age 76 when you most need it
most, you are not eligible for cancer treatment * see page 272. What
Nancy Pelosi didn’t want us to know until after the healthcare bill
was passed. Remember she said, “We have *to pass the Bill so that we
can see what’s in it.”

Well, here it is. ObamaCare Highlighted by Page Number THE CARE BILL
HB 3200 JUDGE KITHIL IS THE 2ND OFFICIAL WHO HAS OUTLINED THESE PARTS
OF THE CARE BILL. Judge Kithil of Marble Falls , TX - highlighted the
most egregious pages of HB3200. Please read this....... especially the
reference to pages 58 & 59.

JUDGE KITHIL wrote:

** Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all
non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.

** Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an
individual’s bank account and will have the authority to make
electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

** Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the
government) for all union members, union retirees and for community
organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for
Reform Now - ACORN).

** Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be
treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with
that?)

** Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of
specialty, and the government will set all doctors’ fees. This is what
they do in Sweden too. I know because Alf’s daughter Ann is an OBGYN,
and her husband, Thorsten, is a surgeon.........

** Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according
to the patient’s age.

** Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on
hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an
exception.

** Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning
consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an
“end-of-life planning” seminar every five years. (Death counseling..)

** Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can
write an end-of-life order.

HAD ENOUGH???? Judge Kithil then goes on to identify: “Finally, it is
specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of
Congress. No wonder they did not see the need to read it....doesn’t
apply to them!!! THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO STAND UP TO WASHINGTON ..
I don’t know if we can do anything but but awareness helps.

Winds Of Change!
