I was reading section of the Obamcare survival guide and it stated that there are 90,000 doctors in the country and 30,000 would be layed off due to Obamacare. Well now it’s happening as United Health has stated they plan to lay off thousands of doctors in 10 states.
The House voted on a bill that would allow insurance plans to sell to people that would allow them to keep their doctors.
The U.S. House Friday passed a bill that would allow health insurance companies to keep selling policies that don’t comply with Affordable Care Act standards.
The 261-157 vote on the Keep Your Health Plan Act sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., included 39 Democrats.
The plan would allow companies to sell non-compliant policies to current and new customers, and wouldn’t require the providers to alert consumers about the required ACA benefits that are not included.
This plan was supported by 39 democrats who defected and went with the republicans. It is a fair act but opponents like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid say it under minds Obamcare and Obama himself said he would veto any bill like that that comes to his desk. He is ruling like a king and not a president of the people. He rules by executive orders more than any president ever has and does just what the wants. I’ve said it before, Obamacare is not about health care, but about power as the government takes over one sixth of the U.S. economy from the private sector. Besides, most people have healthcare. If you go to any emergency room there are signs saying no patient can be denied. If a person doesn’t have insurance there are many ways to overcome that thru either charity care, or passing it onto the state or referring them to hospitals that take charity cases.
Obama said he heard the American people after 5 million lost their health insurance and said they can have it extended for a year. This makes matters worse. He’s only doing it for the mid- term elections coming up next year. He met with the CEO’s of insurance companies and they told them they couldn’t do that once people are dropped because it would mean a lot of extra expense in paperwork and employee time. In other words Obama is saying we’ll give you your insurance back for one year then take it away from you again.
(Reuters) – UnitedHealth Group dropped thousands of doctors from its networks in recent weeks, leaving many elderly patients unsure whether they need to switch plans to continue seeing their doctors, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.
The insurer said in October that underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company’s other healthcare business. The company also reported spending more healthcare premiums on medical claims in the third quarter, due mainly to government cuts to payments for Medicare Advantage services.
The Journal report said that doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing “significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment.” According to the notices, the terminations can be appealed within 30 days.
Looks like it was the Democrats and Obama all along that was lying to the American people. And Harry Reid of the senate that was not allowing the GOP bills to come to the floor for a vote because Obama and Valerie Jarrett told him not to allow it for any reason. And it was Valerie Jarrett that told the President not to compromise or even talk to the GOP about the the Shut down of Government. Obama and Reid and Jarrett were the ones who planed that mess from the WH.
Based on new poll data the President’s approval rating hovers between 37-41%. This negative rating is the worst of his presidency and is due to the nightmarish launch of Obamacare, his signature program. In his news conference the other day, the President even admitted that he “fumbled” the rollout of Obamacare. It was due to his administration’s utter incompetence, and the waste, fraud and abuse that characterize Obamacare and every government program.
MY advice is for us ALL, regardless of Party, do what is legal and effective to DEFEND our economy, create more jobs, and embrace our REPUBLIC! Check out the links I have provided below:
