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: 

Obama Care Highlighted by Page NumberTHE CARE BILL HB 3200**Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. Residents, even if they are here illegally.

** Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now
– ACORN).** Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors’ fees.

**Page 272. Section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient’s age. 70 is the magic number!!

** Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.

** Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an “end-of-life planning” seminar every five years.

 

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.

    Obamacare is bad enough without embellishing it with things that are circulated in emails. The information in the box, citing page numbers is not completely accurate.

    The Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) is the 15 appointed bureaucrats who will “recommend efficiencies”, i.e. cuts to Medicare, and in the process, further make Congress irrelevant. They will not be making day-to-day decisions as some envision. Their recommendations will go to Congress, and if rejected, Congress is tasked with coming up with “efficiencies” in the same amount as the IPAB. If Congress fails to do so within a set time frame, the IPAB recommendations become law.

    I believe the Comparative Effectiveness Research Board (CERB), is more insidiously dangerous. This is another appointed board which reviews/causes research to be performed, then publishes protocols/standards to be followed. The influence of the US Preventive Care Task Force, a contributor to this Board, is already putting out these protocols, e.g. no PSA for men, no teaching of breast exams or exams for women. (BTW, my primary doc told me these guidelines are based on research done in Russia and China) Eventually, these tests and exams which are recommended by the professional associations, will not be covered. Physicians performing these will be penalized. There is a provision in the law where it speaks to the CERB and the use of all resources, including Electronic Medical Records. This is proof that the Department of Health and Human Services will have access, and cites the intention to “mine” these records for information. “They” will say that this would be aggregate data, without names, but the section mentions the feasibility of creating Patient registries”, which, by definition is patient-specific.

    “Taxes” for those not buying insurance are based on income. The $2,000.00 per person is the “tax” levied against employers for each employee they don’t provide for.

    There are other ways that they will centralize power and control care and reimbursements. One is through pushing physicians to band together in Accountable Care Organizations. This will eventually lead to the disappearance of the family doctor.

    Regarding, “The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations…” This may refer to the provision titled “Reinsurance” where we the taxpayer take over paying insurance premiums for early retirees, aged 55 to 65 (Medicare eligible). Yes, businesses, unions, states and municipalities apply for the DHHS to pick up the insurance costs for these folks. This is already in place. I think about 2,000 entities have been approved for this.
