On top of Obamacare failures, state exchange wastes $1.73 million on Richard Simmons video

By | January 30, 2014

Of course Obamacare can’t live up to the hype Democrats and the President delivered, but hey, why not throw Richard Simmons into the mix to see if that makes it better – even it if costs almost two million dollars.

You see, somehow, California felt that in order to fix the image and low sign-ups, they just needed this:

Facing a $78 million budget shortfall, California’s ObamaCare exchange has spent $1.37 million to fund an outreach video featuring exercise guru Richard Simmons gyrating on the floor and hugging a contortionist who is kneeling with his buttocks in the air.

    Patients whose candidiasis will not get rid of after
    having a month of treatment by their dentist should see their medical doctor to ascertain whether or not the
    oral candidiasis is a result of an infection elsewhere inside the body.
    They should encourage periodic appointments for routine teeth cleaning.

    My advice is basically that you consider this and if you can not find it ask.

    …And it wasn’t even ‘the best of Simmons’ Don’t know which was worse, him or the money he was paid.

    While O-Care marketing and Mr Simmons get paid full wages for promoting O-Care, clinics are getting paid less than minimum wage to provide such care. In many cases, particularly Medicaid and it’s various disguised clones that are basically Medicaid by another name, it’s costing clinics far more to provide O-Care and O-Caid than the clinic might get paid.

    How bad is can this be? In WA State, Medicaid is paying $1.38 for a dental xray — far less than 10% of normal fees for such a procedure. $1.38 is not even enough time to cover staff costs to make and set up such an appointment…

    But not to worry, Mr Simmons got big bucks for his ‘donation’ to promoting O-Care. Undoubtably, a bunch of that will be laundered back to the Ocrat party as donations for more Ocrat nonsense.

    So it’s all good — nothing much to see here, just move along now…
