The Democratic declaration of victory on ObamaCare this spring was that the law was here to stay. As summer blazes on, that boast may come to sound more like a lament than a boast. Consider, for example, the NYT piece on how Americans are paying through the nose for care but increasingly wait longer and longer to see doctors: The Commonwealth Fund, a New York-based foundation that focuses on health care, compared wait times in the United States to those in 10 other countries last year... The study found that 26 percent of 2,002 American adults surveyed said they waited six days or more for appointments, better only than Canada (33 percent) and Norway (28 percent), and much worse than in other countries with national health systems like the Netherlands (14 percent) or Britain (16 percent). As physicians flee the field with new regulations coming on line, will the problem likely get worse or better?
Problems with Obamacare are very likely to get much much worse. When Americans see their premiums to rise before the Election, the Democrats may wish to take their votes and support back.
I hope Obama campaigns for every Democrat Senator and Congress person and boast about Obamacare and the Illegal Alien Children flood. I pray he may be unable to restrain himself!
My cardiologist,a senior staff member of *three* of the world’s most famous hospitals (all in Boston) told me recently that OsamaObamaCare is nightmare for him and that he’s decided to hang up his shingle about 5 years before he had always planned to do so.And he’s a liberal..we were friends long before I came to be in need of his professional services.
Impaired critical thinking is at the heart of the push behind the institution of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010”. Not read by ANYBODY who voted for it, passed under cover of darkness by what was essentially a purely party line vote, and that only by making unrealistic and unsustainable promises. The terms were in many instances intentionally vague, “as the Secretary may direct”, leaving vast latitude for the administrative nightmare it has become.
Where were you when the fecal matter hit the whirring blades of the air distribution device. Nobody comes out clean and as a winner in this very badly designed lottery.
The nation managed to scrap Prohibition, after experimenting with it for some twelve years or so, and that law had been written into the Constitution as an Amendment.
There is no amendment that protects the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010”, and except for the fact it was found to be legally a “tax”, no constitutional support for its implementation.
And unfair taxes may always be repealed when found to be too onerous to collect or disburse in an orderly and honestly administered manner.
Despite the claims of its most “progressive” supporters, no law is immune to repeal, or being reduced to “dead letter”. Look at the “Defense of Marriage Act”, enacted under the Clinton interregnum. Great political theater, until the politics shifted. Then it just became - inoperative.
Just like a case of herpes.
THere’s a suit in DC court now about subsidies that may go our way [eliminating all subsidies in states that did not set up their own exchange - 34 of them]...
but there’s another case out there I can’t find anything on - and I think it’s in DC too - the one that says the bill is void b/c it is a revenue bill [”thanks” Mr. Roberts] but it originated in the Senate [not the House.]
The arguments are along the lines of “the bill DID originate in the House” vs “the bill that originated in the House was fully stripped out and only the bill number remained - meaning any House bill can be stripped out and a revenue bill put in its place by the senate thereby neutering the constitution’s requirement that revenue bills originate in HOR”
Where’s news on THAT bill?
hang up his shingle ...My daughter’s pediatrician just did the same.
Why Obamacare Is A Disaster
I think this has happened with a lot of doctors. They started leaving over 10 years ago.
My point is that with *my* doctor,who's always been a workaholic and is now in his early 60's,specifically told me that he's retiring early *solely* because of OsmamaObamaCare...not because of health or having won the lottery,etc.
Wow! Who could have seen that coming?
I think the ones who retired earlier saw it coming in the way medicare and Medicaid were being touted. They left then.
