Beware the Perils of Obamacare
It’s going to be a big heartbreaker,
Grandma needs a new pacemaker,
And the doctor says I realize she’s ill,
But there’s been some legislation
On all our medications
And all I can do is put her on a pain pill.——Ray Stevens ,”We The People”
What Ray Stevens says here is absolutely true . In Obamacare everything is cost effective and it is seniors who will feel it the most.
While I was watching the Republican Convention I saw two female reporters on CNN talking about Obamacare and one said she checked with two nonpartisan fact checking sites and both said seniors had nothing to worry about. I beg to differ with them. The fact checkers said that because the Obama administration said for them too and the liberal mainstream media goes along with anything Obama says naturally and in this case the facts don’t matter to the fact checkers.
I did some extensive research into Obamacare and came up with these facts:
All of the above should give you the information you need to understand why great numbers of fellow Americans, especially Seniors, have voiced their opposition to Obamacare.
A small group of 15 faceless bureaucrats will be making life and death decisions as a bureaucrat will come between you and your doctor. In other words when your doctor diagnoses you with an illness hat needs surgery they will have to consult with a government official via their computer to decide what treatment you should be given. A senior who needs a heart bypass or transplant like Dick Cheney recently got will no doubt be told that that procedure has to be saved for a younger person.
Recently Obama literally stole 716 billion dollars from medicare intended for doctors and recipients for his Obamacare. The New York Times and CNN say that the spending cuts are aimed at insurance companies and hospitals and not beneficiaries. This is total nonsense. Large cuts to providers will mean cuts to patients. Do you think doctors and hospitals will offer the same treatment for less money? Many doctors are already saying medicare payments are too low. The affordable care act says doctors will be paid less to build up medicare. Obamacare went from costing 935 billion to 1.5 trillion and still climbing.
Recently several doctors have banned together to oppose this legislation and Mitt Romney has stated that the greatest threat to medicare is Obamcare and his administration intends to stop it. If people don’t want to go on Obamcare they will be taxed or sent to prison. That was recently changed to being a tax because sending someone to prison for not wanting Obamcare is viewed as unconstitutional. So a person will be taxed $2000 for refusing the government plan.
Recently Sean Hannity had on his show, people who voted for Obama, but now are dissatisfied with him. The one that particularly stuck with me was a young man who was the son of immigrant parents who escaped from the communist country they were living into come here only to find us now becoming the very thing they escaped from. Wake up America before you have nothing to wake up to.
A couple of San Antonio doctors have responded with an effective ad to counter this injustice. See the ad produced by Drs. Jane Hughes and Kris Held.
