Obama Backer Finds First 96 DOCTORS She Contacts Won’t Accept Her New Obamacare Insurance…
rightwingnews.com ^ | April 10, 2014 | John Hawkins

She’s reached out to 96 DOCTORS who won’t treat her and it hasn’t changed her mind at all about Obamacare. Wow, you want to talk about “stuck on stupid,” well, this is it. What’s left for conservatives to say to someone who supports a system that puts her through this much other than, “Told you so?”

It sounds as though she is trying to make the case for doctors to become government employees.

Well, after all, as she says, it’s all the fault of those 96 selfish doctors, who are unwilling to work for less than a McDonald’s trainee.

What, you mean giving people health “insurance” isn’t the same thing as actual healthcare? Who would have thought?

Here’s a quote from her: “My shiny, never used Horizon health card is as effective as a dollar bill during the Great Depression.” Not exactly a great analogy since a dollar bill during the Great Depression would have been highly valuable and bought a lot of stuff.

Who themselves have rent to pay and only the well-established doctors could really afford to take Obamacare patients, because it can take six months or more to finally get the fees promised by the government.

It sounds as though she is trying to make the case for doctors to become government employees.

She's making the case to FORCE doctors to become government employees - and when that doesn't work - to dramatically lower the standards for medical care personnel.

Remember how Obama wanted to help criminals get jobs? Well, your next 'doctor' might have gotten his 'training' while serving a prison sentence for rape. And his 'training' would be an 18 month course. Expect the horrors to continue...

The argument of physicians is essentially that they aren’t being paid enough to treat the ill, which finds poor and “at risk” populations in danger—as usual. Ninety-six doctors measured the value of my life by how much the government is willing to pay for my preventive visit.

This Obamabot has just discovered why her health insurance policy was such a deal. For her next big surprise she will, sight unseen, buy a big house in downtown Detroit for $100. "What a deal I got," she'll chirp to her friends at Starbucks. "As soon as I move in I'm going to invite all the neighbors over for a block party."

AS Harry Reid said when Obama Care passed Congress, the real intention is to get to ‘the single payer system’, where no one has a choice, even the doctors.

And despite this and much more, the GOPE, who are exempt from Obamacare, have done nothing to relieve the rest of us from its torment.

Absolutely.
I say it to Obama voters in real life all the time.
And equally to Romney voters who actually campaigned for him as he pushed the same plan.

If you campaign for someone who espouses a policy then you are responsible for that policy whatever it is.

Even if it turns out to kill you.

You’re right, I meant to say implemented which was Oct 1, 2013, but it was actually after Nevada Week in April, when Reid did the interview, BUT the link was in Aug 2013. I paraphrased, but the jest was ‘the Democrats knew that eventually insurance would not be a part of health care, and they would move to a single payer system’.....so I look at the money/drama/website issues as part of a bigger plan.

http://www.politicususa.com/2013/08/10/harry-reid-reveals-obamacare-step-single-payer-healthcare.html

This is what I was saying earlier in this year in several comments; that single payer was the intention all along, when they passed it. The Administration/Democrats are just wasting money until people are so disgusted they will accept any crap that will be offered, like the UK.

This is the type of ammunition the administration will use to force the move to single payer. It’s stories like this that will be amplified by the mouthpiece media, and will lead to the demands by people for ‘redress’, and the ONLY offer coming from this criminal enterprise administration will be to parade out all their talking heads to explain that healthcare is so complicated and so complex that the only entity capable of properly addressing peoples’ needs is fedgov.

Time to water the tree of liberty, perhaps.

My Doctors office 3 signs. We do not accept ACA paitients. Then in parenthesis (Also known as Obamacare). One on the outside door to come in, the other on the lobby door to enter the Lobby and another at the check-in desk.

On another note I just received a letter from my cardiologist that says. I will no longer be in practice as of May 28th. So and So will take pick up my current patients. I am leaving to pursue other interests. When I contact the other cardiologist they said they’re not accepting any new customers.

I’m not on ACA, I’m on medicare.

My husband’s pulmonary specialist is closing his practice to go into consulting.We believe it is due to the ACA. Fortunately, he found one that happened to have seen him many years ago when he was in the hospital. The VA is great for most everything, but he wants a pulmonary nearby.

Monthly revenues at $23.50 per visit, seeing 5 patients per hour working full time with no vacation is about $17,000.

Malpractice insurance is about $10,000 per month which leaves $7000

1/4 share of an office rent is about $2000 which leaves about $5000

a nurse and receptionist costs about $7000 per month so a quarter share is about $1800 which leaves $3800 per month.

After paying other fees of about $1000 per month the gross pay is $2800 per month

That leaves about $32,000 per year gross pay for a doctor that treats patients on the Government reimbursement schedule.

People on welfare receive cash and cash in kind benefits on the $30,000-60,000 per year.

“It sounds as though she is trying to make the case for doctors to become government employees.”

I’m sure she believes that health care is a right. So, send in SWAT teams to force doctors out of retirement.

This attitude demonstrates how Leftists view rights. Rights, according to the Leftist, always require that a less favored group give up something of value to the favored group. Rights, in this sense, are harmful to certain individuals; they are nothing more than legalized coercion and theft.

If single payer was what they wanted ‘all along’ then they’re even bigger liars then I thought. Trust me - under these fools - single payer would be more of a nightmare.

I was born in 1944 and heard many stories from my parents and others about working for one half of one dollar per day during the thirties depression so yes, a dollar meant a lot back then, contrary to what this ignorant woman thinks.

Oh I know, but I have suspected all along that was what they wanted, but did not know how to make the people swallow such a big change. Always bragging on those single payer systems of Canada and UK....both nightmares, imho.

We are going to see such waste, already have, just think of the 1 trillion taken out of Medicare in two withdrawals to start this boondoggle, and all the millions in fix it money, plus the cost in cancellations of insurance and people’s cost 2X or 3X what it was. The bills unpaid until they sign up, and now with some of the other taxes and losses involved...unbelievable.

Obviously that woman went through 96 doctors, so what chance does anyone else have until APPOINTED a doctor. Well they are liars, and will continue to lie.

That’ll change when the employer mandate is finally enforced ... no doctor can keep the lights on when he loses a further 75% of his patient load.
