Obama(Don’t)care

“You know we’re going to control the insurance companies.”  —Joe Biden

Well, Joe, take one of these and call me in the morning:

We believe that the doctors who actually care for America’s patients have valuable insight and wisdom to share. We have waited too long for a national voice to inform the average American citizen about the hazards of the new health care law and to lead the way with reform.

Half truths and misleading statements disparaging physicians and our American health care system have been made. The PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) has been promoted as the solution for reform. However, it is a politically driven government takeover of our healthcare, passed by overt bribery and coercion.  American Doctors For Truth

Barack Obama says he is prouder of signing into law the healthcare legislation euphemistically called “Obamacare” than he is of finally disposing of Osama bin Laden.  No wonder.  In the latter instance, he ordered the killing of one aging and ailing human being.  In the other, he’ll do the same for hundreds of thousands.

And, should a handful of lucky geezers somehow survive, he’ll send ‘em kicking and screaming to the nearest poorhouse.  The rest of us will take the shuttle bus to a government-run health exchange before taking a hard left onto a one-way street called single-payer :

Two years ago, President Barack Obama had an opportunity to support commonsense, market-driven reforms that would have made health insurance more affordable and accessible while safeguarding the doctor-patient relationship.

Instead, the president embraced an unprecedented federal power grab that violates the Constitution and relies on Washington budget tricks to disguise the true cost of a law that has already proved unaffordable.  Senator John Cornyn

But Obama’s Law may be declared null and void well before the inevitable wreck:

“…the federal government’s brief almost completely fails to consider the question of whether the mandate is ‘proper,’ as well as ‘necessary.’ The Supreme Court has made clear that these are two separate requirements, both of which have to be met. And a law that can only be defended by a rationale that gives Congress a blank check to enact virtually any other mandate clearly is not ‘proper.‘” —Ilya Somin, Associate Professor, George Mason University School of Law

Still, with Obama functionaries Sotomayor and Kagan on the court, joined by a permanently flawed jurist like Ginsburg, who regards the Constitution as an intolerable impediment to the imposition of left-wing “fairness” and Anthony Kennedy, whose rulings can be as volatile as a wagon load of sweaty TNT on a bumpy road, it would take only one backsliding nominally conservative arbiter to permanently fasten the fetters around our ankles.

Wars have been fought over less.

See also: Obamacare’s four tax hikes on young adults and kids: The jobs-killing Obamacare law contains 20 new or higher taxes on American families and employers. Many of these tax increases fall on families making less than $250,000 — a direct violation of candidate Obama’s promise not to raise “any form” of taxes on these families.

Two years of ‘Obamacare’ not helping patients: Based on our combined 50 years of practicing medicine, we warned at the time that his health care law would be bad for patients, bad for providers and bad for taxpayers. The law focused on some of the symptoms in our health care system but failed to address the underlying disease…We found fewer choices, higher taxes, more government and less innovation.

Poll: 67 percent oppose Obamacare mandate: A new ABC/Washington Post poll found that Americans oppose the health care law 52 percent to 41. The poll also found that a total of 67 percent said the mandate or the whole law should be thrown out.

They Really Wanted Obama Care: The left reached Shambala when they ramrodded ObamaCare through Congress. But The Road to Shambala took a lot of work to pave. For one thing, someone had to write the nearly 3,000 page bill, a bill that no one in Congress read, before working to get it passed…No, getting the bill read isn’t really much of an impediment. But getting it passed might be. That requires votes, and planning to get those votes. To get them, you might even have to tamper with a few close senatorial races – what other explanation is there for a Senator Stuart Smalley, er, Senator Al Franken?

    Our Country is up against it.
    A liberal power grab that has been formulated to culminate in Obama’s election.
    Their attempts to coalesce the people that would re-elect Obama even though the Country is struggling to survive economically is indicative of the desperation the left has to it’s Marxist policies.
    Bait and switch is an old game, and it is being used on voters that cannot fathom the intricacies of the professional politicians.
    Their greatest fear is an intelligent constituent.
    Their 2nd greatest fear is if that constituent confronts them with a question that they refuse to answer due to their voting record.

    Their attitude is generally, how dare you ask me that question !
    Time to put them in their place.
    2012 elections, make a statement.

    This atrocity must be repealed…completely!

  4. bunkerville says:

    You nailed it as best as anyone has.

  5. I pray that the Supreme Court does the right thing and finds the mandate unconstitutional…and that the entire law unravels as a result. But we still need a new prez and a majority in congress to compelely put Obamacare to rest.

      ObamaCare Still a Disaster

      “I am a refugee,” my anesthesiologist told me after I had awakened from my third surgery in 12 years — one to repair a muscle tear in my left shoulder and two for the same disc in my lower back. “I am part of the British ‘brain drain’ of the late ’60s. Doctors could not make any money. So I left.” Britain’s loss, my gain. The same surgery 12 years ago required a two-day stay in a hospital. Last week, after a two-hour surgery, I left the same day as an outpatient.

      But under ObamaCare, we can expect a loss of talent and a decline in quality of care. Thousands of us, the doctor explained, abandoned England to practice medicine in America. “So, how’s this?” my doctor said. “I left the U.K. to get away from the government telling me how to practice, what to charge — and now we are getting the same thing. ObamaCare stinks, and the people will regret it. What happened to the docs there will happen here.”

    Krauthammer:

    If Obamacare is upheld, it fundamentally changes the nature of the American social contract. It means the effective end of a government of enumerated powers — i.e., finite, delineated powers beyond which the government may not go, beyond which lies the free realm of the people and their voluntary institutions. The new post-Obamacare dispensation is a central government of unlimited power from which citizen and civil society struggle to carve out and maintain spheres of autonomy.

    …Today, it’s the Catholic Church whose free-exercise powers are under assault from this cascade of diktats sanctioned by — indeed required by — Obamacare. Tomorrow it will be the turn of other institutions of civil society that dare stand between unfettered state and atomized citizen.

    Rarely has one law so exemplified the worst of the Leviathan state — grotesque cost, questionable constitutionality and arbitrary bureaucratic coerciveness. Little wonder the president barely mentioned it in his latest State of the Union address. He wants to be re-elected. He’d rather talk about other things.

    Pelosi: Obamacare Allows You to Quit Your Job and Become ‘Whatever’

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that Obamacare facilitates the type of “liberation” that the “Founders had in mind” because it allows you to quit your job and become a “photographer,” a “writer,” a “musician”–or “whatever.”

    Yes, quit your job to become “whatever” … even if you’re a talentless hack like the former Speaker. Why let heartless reality interfere with baseless pipe dreams?
