Hat/Tip to USAToday. Supply won’t meet growing demand for primary care Even though Obama’s signature legislation, the contrarily named ‘Affordable Care’ Act will create a need for 8,000 new family, or primary care doctors, funding in ObamaCare will only yield a bit over 2,000 new physicians. Federally funded programs will add at least 2,300 new primary care practitioners by the end of 2015, but the funding for at least one of those programs is set to expire at the same time, contributing to a massive shortage of doctors available to treat patients — including those newly insured through the Affordable […]
Hat/Tip I Hate The Media. So we screwed up the greatest healthcare system in the world, spent billions of dollars on websites that don’t work, ruined millions of health insurance polices for hardworking Americans – killing a few people in the process, by the way – and legislated the largest single tax increase in world history… for what? From the National and State Impact Analyses of the ACA on Insurance Prices and Enrollment Beyond 2014: Nationally, we estimate an initial decrease in the uninsured with greater use of the private health insurance subsidies, but over time health plan prices […]
From Poor Richard’s News. What follows is a heartbreaking story. What makes it worse is that if we don’t stop ObamaCare, it won’t be an anomaly, it will be the standard. Reading this story absolutely breaks my heart, both for this woman and the millions of Americans who will soon be in her shoes. Everyone now is clamoring about Affordable Care Act winners and losers. I am one of the losers. My grievance is not political; all my energies are directed to enjoying life and staying alive, and I have no time for politics. For almost seven years I have […]
Hat/Tip Freedomworks. Since the days of FDR, our government has been sticking it’s nose into our healthcare system. There are many problems with the employer-provided health insurance model. It was first implemented as a way to get around FDR’s wage controls during the Great Depression, and by all rights should never have existed in the first place. Tying health insurance to employment. instead of a system that favors individual plans purchased by individuals. is awkward, inefficient, and in many cases unjust. Then along comes Obama, and his plethora of broken promises making a bad system worse. However, a shift from […]
Hat/Tip to the Capitalism Magazine. By now we have all found out what a fiasco ObamaCare is. The ridiculously named Affordable Care Act is anything but. It doesn’t improve or expand actual care and converse to it’s name, it raises health care costs. So what exactly are the dangers of ObamaCare? The suppression of liberty in health care choices will take all privacy down with it. Tight government control of electronic medical records–which used to be private–seems a minor contribution to the destruction of the Fourth Amendment compared to the seizure of everyone’s communications with everybody, without individual court orders […]
So ObamaCare was gonna help us “be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.” Or at least that’s the impression one gets after the dozens of speeches and promises (broken ones, I might add) about what […]
ObamaCare was supposed to decrease heath insurance premiums. In fact, we were promised a $2500 DECREASE in ObamaCare Premiums. Instead, however, we are seeing vast INCREASES in premiums. I guess, just like the “If you like your plan” lie, and just like the “If you like your doctor” lie, the “premiums are going to go down” claim is every bit the lie as the first two. Wyblog has more… Now, in a Superfecta of Obamacare #fail, if you were expecting to save $2,500 per year, well, the joke’s on you. Do you remember when Barack Obama told you the average […]
I’m at work right now and I have to admit I’m in a very good mood. Some liberals didn’t take my previous post very kindly and that does sadden me somewhat … NOT!! Regardless of how many times they say it or how loud they proclaim that people are swarming the system to try to get signed up, and millions of people are rushing to get insurance. And America is now cognizant of the fact that Obamacare is a good deal after all, it doesn’t change the fact that Obamacare is one big “stinkburger!” (I wish I’d have thought of […]
The Hobby Lobby Care was being heard before the Supreme Court today, and while liberal justices were dismissive of religious rights, as predicted, they also reminded us of another lie told by democrats. There are no taxes in ObamaCare! Just like, “if you like your plan,” or, “if you like your doctor,” lies, the no taxes claim will go down as one of the many blatant lies told by democrats in order to gain support for ObamaCare. Wyblog has the details… Kagan, Sotomayor to Hobby Lobby: Pay the Obamacare Jizya, you Christofascist women-haters It’s no surprise that Obamabot Justices Elena […]
Remember being promised (repeatedly), that under ObamaCare; if you liked you plan and doctor, you could keep them? Let’s refresh your memory with these ObamaCare promises… Now, here is some more reality intruding into the narrative… But, what happened to keeping you doctor if you liked them? Don’t worry, the democrats, and their lapdogs in the MSM, will shove the false ObamaCare promises down the memory hole, and pretend that they never were made. H/T: The Daily Caller
When the Soviets screwed up and killed a slew of people, they would lie, and say it never happened. When Mao’s Great Leap Forward caused millions to starve, they said it didn’t happen. I seriously doubt that after the Khmer Rouge killed millions in the Killing Fields, they came out and said, “Yeah, we did that!” No, they probably said it didn’t happen either. Now, enter Harry Reid, with his claim that all of the suffering caused by ObamaCare simply did not happen. Here is some more, from The Minority Report… SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “…there’s plenty of horror stories […]
“Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job.” – Nancy Pelosi “Obamacare lets people keep their health insurance even if they quit their job to master iambic pentameter.” – Jonah Goldberg “Now that the Congressional Budget Office has confirmed that ObamaCare is the jobs-killer conservatives always claimed it was, the White House has put the spin machine into overdrive. Since they can no longer deny the truth, they’ve decided to convince you that destroying the workforce is a good thing.” – Robert Laurie “The Democrats […]
We’ve been warning, since about 2009, that the monstrosity that became ObamaCare would eventually cause doctors to not accept those plans, or quit altogether. That ObamaCare prediction, ridiculed at the time, is now coming to pass. One doctor, Kristen S. Held MD, publicly posted her letter to Aetna, informing them that she was ceasing to be a provider due to ObamaCare. Here is that letter… January 30, 2014 Dear Mr. Bertolini, With a deep sense of sadness, I must inform you that I will no longer serve as a physician for Aetna patients under the terms of our contractual agreement, […]
Back in 2009 and 2010, bloggers such as myself warned that ObamaCare would cause people to be turned down for care-it would be rationed to decrease costs. We said that more claims would be denied under ObamaCare. At that time, the democrats told everyone not to listen to us, because we were being paid by the insurance companies, or were crazy, or racists. Well, it’s now 2014, and guess what? More care is being denied. For what is sure to be the first of many stories of this type, here is more from The Western Center for Journalism… If you […]
I love words, but the following ObamaCare PSA sucked all rational thought out of my head. Take a look, and be stupified yourselves! Since the video has drained my brain (it comes back, I hope), here is my response. H/T: Adrienne Now, I think I’m going to go and hit my head off 0f something until my eyes bleed. You know, when I came up with the “ObamaCare Damage” category, I never thought that my brain would be a casualty.
ObamaCare has millions of “faces.” Those that had their hours cut at work, making it more difficult to make ends meet. Also, we cannot forget the people that have lost their jobs entirely. And, too, we cannot forget the millions that had a plan, or doctor, that they liked. Of course, they now have lost one, or both. In other words, the casualties of ObamaCare are piling up. Here is one of those faces. Her name is Emilie Lamb. She has Lupus, an autoimmune disease that requires regular medical care. Emilie Lamb, 39, is a middle-class woman who suffers from […]
WTAE in Pittsburgh recently attended a meeting at one local business, Simonetta’s Collision and Car Care Center, that unveiled their new, ObamaCare complaint health care plan… Higher premiums for most, and higher deductibles and co-pays for all. I wonder how many of them voted for this, and therefore, ObamaCare?
Here’s yet another example of a person that is being harmed by the “Affordable” Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. 28 year old Amanda Pratt has found herself in dire straights. Not only did she have a large brain tumor, ObamaCare, in spite of it’s promise to be “affordable,” has complicated Pratt’s treatment by making it unaffordable. That’s already somewhat jarring for young woman. Maybe it should have prepared her for what she saw when she went to the doctor last week. That’s where she got another shock: the cost of some of her care now that Obamacare had started […]
My friends, the situation is grave. As much of the US is in the deep freeze due to global warming, animals all over the world are being quick frozen! That’s right, not only is global warming making it colder, it’s getting so cold that animal life is being frozen in place. Because, as we all know, global warming makes it cold! Here is some photographic evidence… Apparently, the global warming is so bad, that even the Sharknado has been cancelled due to freezing temperatures (that are caused, of course, by global warming)! Rock City Times reported: Over 150 frozen sharks […]
What we don’t know can indeed hurt us. What I don’t know could fill the Library of Congress and then some. And, that’s true of all of us, isn’t it? Fortunately, we have the internet, where we often learn about things by accident while searching or researching other subjects. That happened to me today. While reading an article at the Canada Free Press (H?T to BadBlue Uncensored News) on the never-ending Global Warming sham, I came across something I’d never heard about before. This an excellent article briefly covers a lot of ground on how government policies based on the threat […]
We warned people that if Obama was re-elected, that people would lose their plans and doctors. Being a rocket scientist was not a requirement for making that prediction, but millions of low information voters drank the Kool Aid, and voted for Obama. Since then, people have lost their plans, their jobs, their hours, and their doctors. Here is the latest… On Wednesday, WKBN in Ohio reported that hundreds of patients in the state were losing their doctors thanks to Obamacare. Area medical facilities have been reporting that they have had to stop accepting insurance. “Hundreds of people in the Mahoney […]
When college students were asked ObamaCare, the reactions were, shall we say, less than positive. Chicks on the Right has more… Once again, I have suggested that the GOP, by reaching out with a viable message, can convert these people to GOP voters with relative ease. However, they are too concentrated on playing it safe with the democrats, and attacking the Tea Party, AKA, their base. So, they’ll miss this classic opportunity. And that is why we call them the stupid party.
