Obama Care faces major hurdles. The system was designed to gain life and death
control over the lives of the American people, not provide universal health
care. That is whey the program is so expensive and created 1968 new Federal
Bureaucracies. A reasonable health care system would have done the following:1. Allowed competition across state lines.2. Allowed people to purchase
only the coverage they need rather than require that they cover every disease,
real and imagined, under the sun.3. Require that hospital emergency rooms
treat all real emergencies but allow them to refer non-emergency cases to other,
lower cost form of delivery.4. Require people who "game the
system" to pay their hospital bills. If they get treated for an emergency at
a hospital and they deliberately did not buy insurance, they gambled and
lost.5. Require that health care providers charge the same price for all
customers, insured or not.6. Do something about illegal immigration. 7. Move the country in the direction of catastrophic care insurance and
Medical Savings Accounts.Obama Care made things more expensive and
will create a doctor shortage.Let the Democrats reap what they sew.
The great Oz,the Grand Inquisitor,smiles! What will the politicians come up with
next! One can only surmise.
Please. Enough with the Doomsday talk. Other countries have healthcare systems
which involve governments deeply, and they succeed. And lest we forget, the REAL
model for ACA is right here, put in by a governor DN readers know well.
"Life and death control" is the kind of baseless accusation that lost
the last election.
Mark: And to which country are you referring to that is succeeding? Certainly,
you would not be referring to all of the socialist countries whose citizens come
to the U.S. for the best health care,or, having accepted medocrity, willing to
exchange liberty and freedom for security . This choice, will only lead to the
same standard that Europe has chosen, a choice hardly comparable to those
patriots who came here to these shores many years ago. Anytime Democrats and
Republicans agree on something, followed by an obedient and medicated citizenry,
liberty loses. If that sounds cynical, it isn't. Reality is based on
fundamental principles, something opposite of the sand that we currently are
Most "medical tourists" come to the U.S. from less developed
countries--not Europe or western industrialized countries.Additionally, A McKinsey and Co. report from 2008 found that between 60,000 to
85,000 medical tourists were traveling to the United States for the purpose of
receiving in-patient medical care. The same McKinsey study estimated that
750,000 American medical tourists traveled from the United States to other
countries in 2007 (up from 500,000 in 2006). The availability of advanced
medical technology and sophisticated training of physicians are cited as driving
motivators for growth in foreigners traveling to the U.S. for medical care,
whereas the low costs for hospital stays and major/complex procedures at
Western-accredited medical facilities abroad are cited as major motivators for
"How do you convince millions of average Americans that one of the most
complex and controversial programs devised by government may actually be a good
deal for them?"Answer: You lie and tell people it will reduce
healthcare cost that it isn't a tax, that it will not affect employers
ability to hire people, it will not create rationing of healthcare, there are no
death panels for the elderly, doctors all love it, that you can keep your own
doctors and that we need to pass it to find out what's in it! Obamacare=
the greatest wealth transfer scam ever devised.
Two points here:Anyone think a regulation with 7-feet thick content
is a good administstion is craze enough in this earth, they need to go Mars?When the creater of 0bamaCare said "it's not a tax" and
Suprecourt said "It's a tax", where is the truth. "American has
the right to be stupid..." (quote from a famous guys in obama's
And the faux news party plan is?? It's been five years and we still
haven't heard anything close to a plan... Should poor people just die?
What was it Mitt suggested? Oh yeah "The Emergency Room."Republicans are sticking with Reagan's cure passed 30 years ago.Nothing like a band aid for a missing limb, medical was almost affordable back
Here's the irony. Canada saw a boom in small business innovation when they
got national health care. We don't have the best medical care in America.
Far from it and we spend the most. The World Health Organization has detailed
information about costs and outcomes. Information is good.
