Skip to comments.The Insiders: Another day, another Obamacare disaster
Posted on 02/26/2014 7:54:47 AM PST by sr4402
In a colossal oh by the way revelation, last Friday afternoon the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a federal agency under the United States Department of Health and Human Services (that would be the executive branch run by President Obama), quietly released a report exposing the fact that under Obamacare, two-thirds of Americans who work at small businesses will see their insurance premiums increase. So this report which is more than two years late says over 11 million American workers will have higher health insurance premiums because of Obamacare.
(Excerpt) Read more at washingtonpost.com ...
I am assuming this is the same Compost newspaper that crucified the Republicans for trying to repeal this monstrosity.
Just in case you didn’t see this on Drudge (IRS Warns: Obamacare Tax Must Be Paid with Tax Return):
“President Obamas Internal Revenue Service today quietly released a series of Obamacare Health Care Tax Tips warning Americans that they must obtain qualifying health insurance as defined by the federal government or face a shared responsibility payment when filing their tax returns in 2015.”
WOW. Here they come now!
Yesterday Obama tripled-down on an enrollment lie that apparently none of the insiders are able to support.
MSM appears to be heading for the tall grass.
I tried to click on that Drudge link and my antivirus program blocked it.
Seems Drudge is throwing up a lot of dirty links these days.
(1) throwing millions of Americans off affordable health plans,
(2) burdening Americans w/ ruinous deductibles,
(3) nationalizing 1/16 of the US economy,
(4) installing IPAB's (Death Panels),
(5) abandoning seniors and the chronically ill, and,
(6) decimating intergenerational transfers of wealth (grandma/pa's holdings go to the govt---not to you). Read on.
Ominous cogs in the Obamacare meat grinder----the inexorable forcing of Grandma/pa onto Medicaid--(like cattle herded single-file onto the narrow ramp---knowing the bolt is coming---but not able to do a thing about it).
Medicaid conveniently groups together the sick and elderly---as Obama's IPAB board of radical Boobamba worshippers sit in judgment. Boobamba's Orwellian-speak---the progressive way of saying "Obamacare keeps costs down."
The infamous "Death Panels---are alive and well----but they're not called death panels......for obvious reasons. The treacherous Obama euphemistically calls his death panel "I-PAB----Individual Payment Advisory Board." I-PAB decides what to pay and who to pay---thus rationing medical care to sick oldsters. Obamacare "allows" states to expand their Medicaid recipients pool. Under Obamacare, Washington now covers about 1/2 the cost of Medicaid enrollees.
IPAB (Independent Payment Advisory Board)is a "progressive" type of US government agency.
1) IPAB is the first of the fifth branch of govt.
2) It will make all important health care decisions by authorizing payment or not.
3) It is not funded by Congress and cannot have its budget reviewed or changed.
4) Its membership cannot be changed by future Presidents,
5) It cannot be repealed by Congress, except for a six month window in 2017.
6) Its decisions are not subject to judicial review.
7) It is not authorized by the Constitution, and is therefore immune to Constitutional processes.
Why is Obamacre herding seniors WITH ASSETS onto Medicaid---a program structured for the poor? Can you say redistribution of wealth? Herding the elderly with assets into Medicaid has ominous consequences that are intriguing to the left. B/c assets, perhaps a home owned free and clear, securities, annuities, investment property, can be seized to pay for govt treatment.
Thus intergenerational transfers of wealth (a longtime progressive bugaboo)----are decimated (grandma/pa's holdings go to the govt---not to you).
REMINDER: Lock-stepping Democrats embedded all of this into law.
Don’t get excited. Rogers is an “opposing viewpoint” contributor.
Don’t forget that Obamacare separates millions from the Doctors and Hospitals. And worse yet, from their jobs or much of their salaries (25%).
QUOTING 2008 OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor. Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
Significantly, Obamba NEVER corrected lock-stepping Democrats, all reading from the same Democrat talking points, all of them repeating the same Democrat promises---over and over again.
LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE Obama And The Dems marched in lockstep. The persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
But even the the ComPost likes a weak opposing view to the Progressivism they want. So to let a Strong opposing view surface shows real trouble in Emerald City.
America doesn't want what you're selling. You are a liar of the first magnitude - empirical evidence has confirmed the fact long ago.
Good point——job losses mount, hospitals in disarray, doctors quitting insurance plans....as the Godzillian O/Care monster rampages over our healthcare system.
My sincere apologies. I was listening to some 80’s music this morning. :)

The communist in chief promised in 2007 that socialized medicine would save the average consumer $2,500 a year and cover everyone. Instead this fiasco will cost the average consumer $3,500 a year and cover fewer people than before. Liberals will call this a success.
Since 0 won’t want to house any of his birthplace or school records in his *presidential* library, he can devote the space to ALL of his lies.
It’s an Ed Rogers opinion piece, not exactly a front-page, top-of-the-fold Washington Post news placement decision.
“When she got to the lab [after receiving an order for blood tests from her rheumatologist], they quoted her $1,800 for the lab tests. She called our office and we rewrote the order under our Epiphany label and the out-of-pocket cost came down to about $85. In one lab test, the patient saved enough money to pay for nearly two years of primary care services [at Epiphany. .... We created an entire network of local like-minded physicians and facilities that are willing to sell services at a discount wit the understanding that the patients would pay cash at the time of service...You’d be surprised to see the pricing we get.” - Dr. Lee Gross, M.D., president of Epiphany Health discussing his model of “concierge care for the little guy.” The Freeman, February 25, 2014.
