Feeling the Effects of Obamacare

Michael Cerpok, is a high school drop-out, one of six kids born to a school teacher, and doesn’t come from a wealthy family. He has run two businesses for more than 25 years and says he may have to do more to literally stay alive.
 
“I’ve worked hard because I’ve had to, and I’ve had to, because cancer runs in my family,” says Cerpok, who picked his current health insurance based on that family history. His monthly premium is just about half of his monthly take-home pay.
 
Back in 2006, he found out he had an incurable form of leukemia that requires ongoing treatment until he dies. In 2012, his treatment bill was more than $350,000. But because of his insurance, his out-of-pocket was only $4,500.  
That’s about to change because Michael just got a letter from his insurance carrier saying as of January 1, he would be dropped from coverage because of new regulations under Obamacare. His doctor at the Mayo Clinic may be gone as well.
 
So everyone might have insurance,but not everything will be covered.

 A few years ago when Obmacare was in the making, many critics, including myself, warned the people just how devastating it is to you with the shortage of doctors, long waits to see a doctor or to get procedure, the fifteen non medical panels that decide who gets what procedure and who doesn’t and the huge costs to everyone. The Obamcare supporters all ‘poohed poohed’ us and were in euphoria over how everyone will finally have insurance and from the first black president too.” Ooooo’,Ahhhh” they all swooned. Well now that it’s here guess what? It’s all true, I always said hundreds of times, ‘OBAMCARE IS BASED ON COST EFFECTIVENESS VERSUS AVERAGE LIFE SPAN.’ Obamcare is not about healthcare, it’s about control.!!!

Back in March a friend of mine was involved in a car accident that damaged his knee severely. He needed an operation and had to wait six months for approval from his insurance co. His company is Geico who are notorious for not paying anyway, but with the advent of Obamcare and new regulations it added to the time he needed to get the operation. He finally got approval for the operation and while he was waiting he was in such pain and couldn’t walk so he called 9-1-1 to take him to the hospital. He was in one of the best hospitals in N.J.,  but  there  was only one doctor on in the Emergency room due to cut backs. He asked for a pain medication and they told him that he needed to speak to his surgeon about that. There was a time you used to be able to get treated in an Emergency room, but now they have cut back on that and just suggest what you can do except for extreme cases..He finally had the  operation and was restricted to his home to recover. He had a physical therapist come to his home and he could only give him a half hour session instead of an hour because of “cutbacks due to Obamcare” he told my friend. My friend also needed a nurse and social worker and was hoping the social worker could recommend someone to clean his apartment for him. They told him they no longer do that because of recent cutbacks. Obamcare  at its’ finest. Both the social worker and physical therapist displayed their displeasure with Obamcare.

My friend also needed a stronger narcotic for his pain and the doctor approved of it, but when his mother went to the hospital to pick it up she was given the third degree by the nurse at the desk. She was there almost an hour answering questions. She felt likes she was an illegal alien when she was born here in America and is 83 years old.

Recently on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show a senior citizen woman called up saying she went to her regular doctor to renew her prescription  and the nurse at the desk asked her all kinds of questions  about her other family members and daughter if they had any illnesses. When she said her daughter had several illnesses she was being treated for  they asked her all questions about that. The woman told them if they wanted to know anything about her daughter to ask her. She asked them why all the questions and they said it was for the new system. She said she normally takes about fifteen minutes to get her prescription, but this took about an hour. Rush asked her if they asked if her daughter was a lesbian and she said no, but it wouldn’t surprise her if they did. Rush said that’s coming next.

When Obamacare first came out it was under the guise it would be free and the other insurances would pay for it. Now that part has been taken out of the White House website and people are finding out the average cost is between $125-$200  per person per month. A family of four would pay about $800per month so do the math and figure it out. Obama said families would see their health care costs drop by $2500 and now most families are seeing their costs rising by $7,500. Companies all over the United States are dropping their employees to part time to avoid paying the costs and it is killing jobs and making us apart time economy. Many people are opting to paying the fine for not having insurance and will pay for doctor visits out of their pocket. Insurance rates will get so high to make up for people dropping out that eventually they will close. This is the Obama plan, to shut down the insurance companies so everyone is dependent on government. Obama took 700 billion out of medicare to pay for Obamcare and plans on taking another 700 billion out  for that also. With the baby boomers all retiring there won’t be enough of the next generations to pay for it and medical experts predict medicare will be gone in about ten years. See it is all about control of the population. To get control of the people you get control of healthcare..!!!!

Republicans wanted to defund Obamcare, but fund the rest of the government. Obama said, ”if you defund Obamacare  we won’t let you fund benefits for veterans and other sites around the country.” It’s his way or the hiway while trying to blame the republicans when it’s the dems and Obama who are shutting down the government. Republicans want to keep the government running, but Obama won’t negotiate with them. Each time the republicans tried  to make concessions  and compromise in the healthcare debate. First they said they would defund, then they suggested delaying it, then get rid of special exemptions for congress and others that applied for it and then let’s sit down and talk. Each time with Obama, it was “no,no,no, no”, yet it’s the republicans fault for shutting down the government and the Obama lapdogs in the media go along with it. The democrats and Obama are the party of NO not the republicans as they want you to believe. Don’t fall for it. 62% of the American people are against this law that was shoved down our throats..

    Nice piece, Jim….but on the ‘funding’ Obama tells us that the funding for this monster is (already) there….IF SO…guess that must mean the ACA jumped to the head of the & gobbled up any funding for the rest of the bills….Can’t decide if it’s typical Bama Brain thinking or just another flat out lie.
