April 21, 2014 2:45 PM Dem Congressman on Obamacare: The Worst Is Yet to Come, It's 'Going to Hit the Fan' By Andrew Johnson

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road.

“There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told the Boston Herald. The “Cadillac tax” that goes into effect in a few years and taxes employer health plans over a certain value, he said, will be “the first time in this country’s history that we have actually taxed health care.”

Repeal is now impossible, he says, because of the number of Americans who’ve signed up for the law’s exchanges. Democrats will take big political hits on the law this fall anyway, Lynch said.

“We will lose seats in the House,” he said. “I am fairly certain of that based on the poll numbers that are coming out from the more experienced pollsters down there, and I think we may lose the Senate.”

Just one question:
If the Dems lose the Senate, and they lose seats in the house, and the Republicans pick up those seats and take over the Senate, HOW IN THE HELL ARE WE GOING TO TELL!

When Medicare was passed back in the 60’s, it was said that it would NEVER Cost over $40 Billion a Year, EVER.

Could have been $20 Billion, but I’m old and my memory is lacking.

"Repeal is now impossible"

Don't buy this crap for a minute. ANYTHING can be repealed. Remember alcohol prohibition? Slavery? Marijuana ban? Homosexuality ban?

It is repeal-able. The states that hurried to sign people up for Medicaid can pay the freight.

Too bad, so sad. Why should everyone else pay for a few million idiots?

When Ocare ripens a bit, we will have daily stories right here like we hear from the UK with patients dropping dead in waiting rooms, the elderly being found months after their deaths with the TV on etc etc. Just give it a little time to reverberate through the country.

I’d like to see the House pass a bill that there would never be funding for a single payer system. A little preemption.

I suspect Mr. Cruz would vigorously argue that point. Me too.

Easy. The preponderance of news stories about how the Senate is responsible for the crapstorm sweeping the nation.

Its a tax, and taxes can be repealed. The question is, will Ted Cruz be president. If not, fuggedabowdit.
