Despite last-minute efforts, ObamaCare officially begins on Tuesday, Oct 1st. But even as open enrollment is set to start, most Americans still don’t understand what they have to do. Already, huge tax increases and fees are hitting — impacting individuals and businesses. There are more than 20,000 pages of ObamaCare rules and regulations. If you don’t know these provisions it could cost you dearly in skyrocketing insurance rates and mountains of new taxes and surcharges.Here is a partial list of only some of the changes in this train wreck you can expect:*Insurance rates are expected to skyrocket and are already doing so. People will eventually pay doctors out of pocket rather than pay the high rates. After a while with enough people doing this insurance companies will shut down and everyone will be forced to turn to the government which is what Obama wants. Obama said people will see their insurance rates drop by $2500 instead they were rising to $7,500. Obamacare will cost each person about $100-200 a month. That’s not affordable so they will opt to pay the fine instead and pay out of pocket to doctors.
*Medicare benefits will shrink. Obama to0k 750 billion dollars out of medicare to pay for Obamacare and plans to take another 750 billion out of it. Also the baby boomers are retiring and there won’t be sufficient costs to cover them.
*The government will decide the benefits of every insurance policy.
*New Obamacare capital gains tax adds a 3.8 surcharge to certain income groups.
*There will be a new income tax on health deductions.
*New excise tax on cadillac health plans that hits employers with a 40% penalty over a certain threshold.
*Long term care for the sick won’t be covered such as nursing homes.
*If you sell your house there will be a 10% charge that will go to Obamacare to help finance it.
*Be prepared for the coming doctor shortage as doctors will be laid off to help cover costs and there will be long waits for a procedure or MRI or cat scan just like Canada and Europe and people may die.
*A fifteen member non medical panel will come between you and your doctor to decide if you should warrant a certain procedure or not. The cut-off date for a major procedure is age 70. After that you can expect minimal care like being put on a pain pill or comfort care. These are the so called “death panels” that Sarah Palin warned us about.
This came about when at a town hall meeting a woman told Obama that her 80 year old mother needed a heart transplant and no doctor would take her until she found one doctor who said her mother had such a yen to live he was willing to take a chance. He did and the woman said her mother lived another 15 years. Obama’s reaction was “I’d just put her on a pain pill.”
This is only part and partial of the horrors facing us in this monster known as Obamcare.
Doug Patton in his commentary on GOPUSA said it best:
In a few days, the century-long dream of every utopian-minded socialist from Woodrow Wilson to Hillary Clinton will become a reality. And when it does, those who mocked Sarah Palin for daring to tell us the truth that Obamacare will lead to health care rationing, which will lead to defacto death panels, will have reached another milestone in their march toward “equality.”
“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.
If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” – Two of the biggest lies so far
in Barack Obama’s mendacity-filled presidency
On Halloween Day, 2008 — appropriately enough, since his tenure as president has been a nightmare that makes Freddy Kruger look like Santa Claus — candidate Barack Obama told the American people, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Well, guess what. He meant it.
But in an exclusive interview with Newsmax, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted that Republicans weren’t fighting a lost cause to defund Obamacare as part of legislation to prevent the federal government from shutting down next week.
“I don’t think it was a waste of time,” the Kentucky Republican said. “The American people do fully understand that still, not a single Republican in the House or Senate favors this awful new law — and if they will send us enough additional new members to get rid of it, we will.”
In addition to delaying final implementation of the Affordable Care Act for a year, the House bill would repeal a tax on medical devices that helps pay for the law, said Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.
As one responder to an article I read said “I hope every jerk that voted for this guy in the WH faces a death panel one day.”
