Skip to comments.Ten Things to Expect from Obamacare in 2014

It's been clear to anyone paying attention that the October "rollout" of Obamacare has been a turbulent, confusing disaster. Sloppy IT systems and technological failures combined to cripple Obamacare's sign-up systems. Security flaws put Americans at risk for identity theft.
In an almost comical understatement, President Obama summarized these massive failures as "a few glitches." I think that Luke Chung, IT expert and president of database solutions firm FMS, explained the situation much more accurately:
"What should clearly be an enterprise quality, highly scalable software application felt like it wouldn't pass a basic code review. It appears the people who built the site don't know what they're doing, never used it and didn't test it."
Chung went on to call it a "technological disaster."

This is an excellent article.
The fundamental question is - will Democrat voters continue to “hope” that that Obamacare is a positive, in the face of everyday evidence and experience that says it’s a huge fubar.
It this doesn't turn your stomach, you've got a strong stomach.
When it becomes apparent to those that sign up for new health plans with unaffordable deductibles, when the new Medicaid member can’t have the needed medical procedure because no doctors are accepting patients, I hope they look back on how hard the TEA party and a handful of Republicans have fought to stop this horrible decent into madness.
I hope they remember the media talking heads that lied and shielded politicians and the administration by ridiculing their accusers.
Anyone registered as a Republican can prepare to be SCREWED by 0bamacare. Health care will be used as a weapon against anyone who doesn’t bow to the King. Why should we think things will be different than they were for the Tea Party over at the IRS? And WTF has happened to the hearings and Lerner? Crickets..
So be prepared to see your non salaried Doc go belly up oh around January 1,2015
From the article:
Ten Things to Expect from Obamacare in 2014
1. The expansion of Medicaid, with increased cost burden for taxpayers.
2. “Sticker shock” as the reality of higher health insurance premiums hits home.
3. Large and small employers are cutting health insurance benefits.
4. The employer-based health insurance policies that remain will have higher out-of-pocket costs for employees.
5. Fewer types of health insurance policies can be offered under Obamacare.
6. Many people cannot keep their doctors.
7. Further destruction of Medicare.
8. Loss of ownership of your medical records.
9. More waivers and exemptions for the political elites and Democrat cronies.
10. On January 1, 2014, the Individual Mandate to purchase Obamacare-compliant health insurance goes into effect.
Can you give me a source for your statement....I want to post it on FB....where I posted the article. Or...something that I can refer people to???
now TPTB deem it unnecessary to have mammograms or pap smears as often....I notice that women are being told they can't be prescribed ambien in 10mg doses, because of some ruse of a study...
we'll see "studies" showing that the insurance companies do not need to pay for many things....
so we will see less care, fewer drugs prescibed,or limited types of drugs prescribed, fewer surgeries allowed, as well as fewer diagnostics in general...
so the key word is "less"....we will have less health care....much less...and the longer it goes on , the lesser we'll get...
It's not only a violation of the 5th Amendment, but it also violates Roe v. Wade.
Roe v. Wade established the right to privacy. I personally believe that the right to privacy is inherent in the unenumerated rights referred to in the Ninth Amendment, although I dont believe it is applicable to the abortion issue, but thats a subject for another day.
So the question is: If the right to privacy designated in Roe v. Wade is widely accepted (especially by leftists) as the Law of the Land, wouldnt that mean that the government has no right to our personal healthcare information?
Doesnt that put Obamacare at odds with Roe v. Wade, and thus render it unconstitutional? Of course I realize that the Supreme Court ruled Obamacare to be constitutionally valid, but that is because the right to privacy was never brought up in the arguments to be considered, nor addressed in the Courts decision.
“it also violates Roe v. Wade.”
That’s a good point if a rational person looked at it. I fear we have a shortage of rational people in charge.
I will try to find it. The statement was made at least a year ago.

The beauty part is that it doesn't require rational people to be in charge. If every public conservative opponent of Obamacare were to make this point vigorously and loudly at every public forum (including TV, radio, campaign ads and on the Senate and House floors), it would put the Democrats on the defensive in a really embarrassing way.
It's a reverse Alinsky, and I think the point needs to be publicly made at every opportunity.
Excellent article written by an actual doctor.
Wouldn’t it be something if the doctors who treat our rulers went on a strike, refusing to treat them in solidarity with the doctors out here in the real world?
A white out.
sorry, that’s probably racis. Verbotten in Obamaland.
When is that supposed to kick in?
Only if you have capital gains on the sale and income above $400,000 I think.
I would happily pay that if I had capital gains on the house I’m trying to sell and I had a $400,000 income. I don’t meet the criteria. ;(
Not that I support soaking the rich, I just wish I was in that category.
