Obamacare: A House of Lies
By MONEY MORNING STAFF REPORTS
If current trends continue, Obamacare will go down as one of the biggest mistakes in our government’s history.
Of the many Obamacare lies, the biggest fallacy was that “If you like your plan can keep your plan.”
**Corporations from GE, IBM, to Time Warner have said they will stop providing insurance for hundreds of thousands of employees. Already, over 4.5 million Americans have received cancellation letters because of Obamacare
It’s estimated that one-third of all U.S. employers could stop offering health insurance to their workers.
Others who still receive healthcare through their employer might have thought they were safe from the law, but starting in 2014 they will feel Obamacare’s wrath, if they haven’t already.
(Many of the most onerous parts of Obamacare have recently been postponed until after the 2014 and 2016 elections. safeguarding the votes of progressive democrats. Who will go back to voting with Harry Reed and Palosi as soon as their seats in government are assured.)
And don’t forget, healthcare was supposed to be “affordable for all.” But experts are now predicting premiums could rise up to 413% for some individuals.
Millions of other Americans are finding out that the many Obamacare taxes don’t just hurt those making over $250,000.
Worse, the federal subsidies provided to lower-income individuals under Obamacare won’t provide enough financial assistance for some consumers and***the burden of paying for these subsidies ultimately falls on middle class Americans, who will suffer most under the law.(We told you so)
The government program officially known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is quickly becoming a house of lies.
Even staunch liberal Michael Moore declared, “Obamacare is awful” in a New York Times op-ed.
“For many people, the ‘affordable’ part of the Affordable Care Act is a cruel joke,” he wrote. “The cheapest plan available to a 60-year-old couple making $65,000 a year in Hartford, Conn., will cost $11,800 in annual premiums. And their deductible will be $12,600. If both become seriously ill, they might have to pay almost $25,000 in a single year.”
Americans are taking notice of the disastrous plan. Obamacare’s approval rating recently hit an all-time low of 35%.
Perhaps the most ominous sign about Obamacare’s future is that doctors are among the biggest Obamacare critics.
Besides the taxes and higher costs, doctors are worried that Obamacare will result in poor patient care.
A recent study by the prestigious Doctor Patient Medical Association revealed that an astounding 90% of doctors feel that the U.S. health care system is heading in the wrong direction.
In 2010, the American Medical Association lost over 215,000 members just because they didn’t agree with Obamacare.(Obama cares less. I believe imigration will bring to the U.S thousands of doctors from 3rd world countries like India, Pakistan even Iran) eroding U.S healthcare even more. (perhaps after the 2016 election) jc
The Association of American Medical Colleges predicts a shortage of 160,000 doctors by 2025, and applications for medical programs are already down 6%.A poll from The Doctors Company revealed 60% of doctors said Obamacare will have a negative impact on patient care.
