Senator Baucus has it right. This is just more sign of the impending
"train-wreck" being created by Obamacare
What I don't get is why so many people were excited about this new
healthcare law. Now that it's passed and has flaws, worts and moles, the
Democrats will blame the Republicans if the solution seems to be to scrap the
thing rather than fix it. But fixing it only works if t he Democrats like the
particular fix.How in the world so many people could vote for OBama
after this legislation was literally rammed down our throats is appalling.
Ignorance really is bliss.
Similar to Nancy Pelosi' statement, "We have to pass this bill to see
what's in it". For many, Obamacare had to be put into effect to find
out what it really is. Until that, many that needed affordable healthcare had
this delusional thinking that Obamacare was going to take care of all their
problems. The dream is often better than reality.
As it turns out, obummer is pushing grandma over the cliff in a wheel chair;
rather than Paul Ryan. obummer wants children with autism to lose health care
coverage and die; rather than Mitt Romney. obummer can't even function and
take care of his own family without the largest "assistants" staff than
any other president.The economy that he promised "laser
focus" and won't "rest" until everyone has a job; is in
shambles.The health care to save everyone and magically overcome
reality won't and isn't materializing.The re-distribution
of wealth by stealing from those that work and giving to those who don't,
has resulted in the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.Emigration reform promised the first year of his presidency, after 5 years is
still being looked at. And won't happen as long as he promises amnesty.He thought he could win over guns and establish his left wing gun
control policy, using dead children as props. When he should have really
addressed mental health issues.He refused to look at the people we
allow into this country on student visas, now a child and several adults are
All of you realize that these people with pre-existing conditions were UNINSURED
before Obamacare, right? This is the first coverage that they have had in a
while. Do you want the government to overrun the cap? Do you want the
government to just drop them? should they have never had coverage again?What is your solutions? Without Obamacare, these people would have
NEVER had healthcare again because of their pre-existing conditions. Just let
Obamacare is a mess. That's why the majority of Americans did not support
it and still don't. This "trainwreck" was passed over the heads of
the American people by paternalistic liberals using parliamentary dirty tricks
because it could never have passed otherwise. Now the chickens are coming home
to roost.I'm trying to have faith that Congress will do
something about this before it's too late because to fail to do so will
result in total collapse. If Romney had been elected we would be on our way to
getting ourselves extricated from this disaster. But, enough people were fooled
to allow Obama to carry on the catastrophe. Sometimes it seems that
I am not even living in the country in which I was born. Please pray for our
Isn't this entire story and the reactions above just about the states'
right crowd whining that federal money isn't coming their way? It seems to
me the 10th Amendment crowd needs to step up and pay for these
"uninsurables", if they really believe what they say. Where
are the churches? Where are the private charities? Isn't that supposed to
be the answer, not the federal government?I think what we're
going to find out is the Heritage Foundation / Mitt Romney / Obamacare approach
to health insurance has so many holes in it that the HillaryCare idea that these
conservative ideas were meant to counter is really the only rational way
forward: a Single Payer system.
Health insurance and health care are different. Arguments that consider those
two things the same are fundamentally flawed. Many "uninsurables" still
receive health care. Many persons intentionally choosing to go without health
insurance still receive health care. Obamacare is about insurance,
not care. It should be called Obama-insurance.
If the health plan fails, Obama will blame Bush
Seventy five percent of fraud, and other crimes are committed by liberal
democrats.Eliminating many of our entitlement programs will squeeze
out the fraud, and fix our health care problems. It'll take away our
deficit spending, and other economic problems.
"The root of the problem is that the federal health care law capped spending
on the program at $5 billion, and the money is running out because the
beneficiaries turned out to be costlier to care for than expected".When "selling" a new program, the administration downplayed and
underreported true costs. Additionally, this health care effort on the federal
level is being attempted for the first time, with likely surprises.The surprises are exaggerated because Democrats did not allow Republican input
and time to vet the bill/law. Indeed, Pelosi's laughable statement that
the bill must be passed so they can read what is in it, may summarize the entire
process nicely.Regardless of facts, regardless of the truth or error
of previous posts, this law is costing more than anticipated. In fact,
information is now coming out that it is has not reduced the cost of insurance
at all, and is actually contributing to the increased costs of health care.Who would of thought this could happen?The process,
characters (Democrats), and this poor law have created a mess. Democrats should
pay dearly at the polls.
There should be no federal health care. This is a local matter.
Is Obama exempt from his health care overhaul?
