Why does anyone still speak good of Obamma care?

» Obamacare won't decrease health care costs for the government. According to Medicare's actuary, it will increase costs. The same is likely to happen for privately funded health care.

» As written, Obamacare covers elective abortions, contrary to Obama's promise that it wouldn't. This means that tax dollars will be used to pay for a procedure millions of Americans across the political spectrum view as immoral. Supposedly, the Department of Health and Human Services will bar abortion coverage with new regulations but these will likely be tied up for years in litigation, and in the end may not survive the court challenge.

» Obamacare won't allow employees or most small businesses to keep the coverage they have and like. By Obama's estimates, as many as 69 percent of employees, 80 percent of small businesses, and 64 percent of large businesses will be forced to change coverage, probably to more expensive plans.

» Obamacare will increase insurance premiums -- in some places, it already has. Insurers, suddenly forced to cover clients' children until age 26, have little choice but to raise premiums, and they attribute to Obamacare's mandates a 1 to 9 percent increase. Obama's only method of preventing massive rate increases so far has been to threaten insurers.

» Obamacare will force seasonal employers -- especially the ski and amusement park industries -- to pay huge fines, cut hours, or lay off employees.

» Obamacare forces states to guarantee not only payment but also treatment for indigent Medicaid patients. With many doctors now refusing to take Medicaid (because they lose money doing so), cash-strapped states could be sued and ordered to increase reimbursement rates beyond their means.

» Obamacare imposes a huge nonmedical tax compliance burden on small business. It will require them to mail IRS 1099 tax forms to every vendor from whom they make purchases of more than $600 in a year, with duplicate forms going to the Internal Revenue Service. Like so much else in the 2,500-page bill, our senators and representatives were apparently unaware of this when they passed the measure.

» Obamacare allows the IRS to confiscate part or all of your tax refund if you do not purchase a qualified insurance plan. The bill funds 16,000 new IRS agents to make sure Americans stay in line.

If you wonder why so many American voters are angry, and no longer give Obama the benefit of the doubt on a variety of issues, you need look no further than Obamacare, whose birthday gift to America might just be a GOP congressional majority.

    Dembots -

    Do you know that a lot of Repub senators are funded by the big pharma drug companies your links are whining about - lobbyists buy your people to make laws to help them distribute their dope to college kids and YOU vote for 'em- idiotic!!

    The Question - what a slanted pile of B.S. you spent WAY too much time ctrl C & ctrl V all those biased exaggerations -

    The Health Care plan is subsidized for everyone's level - you will be paying WAY more for private insurance or going without ANY - don't you get it?

    then drop your own private ins right now - if your so fearless... does it save you from expense -

    ever see someone bankrupted by medical costs? happens all the time...

    You did a good job of cutting and pasting, but that does not mean that you are right. Most of the provisions haven't even gone into effect yet, so how would people know whether to like it or not? Many provisions start today, in fact, and a lot of families are going to be very happy to find out that they will now be covered, that they can't be denied for pre-existing conditions, that their kids can stay on their insurance longer, that insurance companies can't kick you out when you get sick.

    The reason "so many American voters are angry" is that they have been sold a pack of lies by the right-wing noise machine, including the Washington Examiner, and don't have the actual FACTS.

    initially, it quite is in simple terms no longer unfastened. on a similar time as the up-front value would be decrease, you, and another taxpayer would be paying contained in direction of the nostril for it. 2nd, in each us of a that has instituted it, socialized wellbeing care has resulted interior the comparable ingredient that occurs with another bereaucratic area of society. long strains, undesirable shopper help, and (sure I already suggested this) greater taxes. In England, case in point, the medical doctors, surgeons, and different scientific experts are unionized and could quit interior the midst of a technique to take their lunch breaks, which, by ability of how, frequently incorporate a pair pints of ale. (i know i do no longer desire a physician who in simple terms had a pair pints engaged on me!) additionally, opposition is what makes companies greater clever, and hospitals are no exception. (sure, i know i'm going to get voted down for identifying to purchase my the help of someplace different than NPR and CNN.) yet another facet notice, in case you are going to vote for somebody, attempt studying a thank you to spell their names.

    I think we come back to liberal arrogance. They THINK they are too smart to back the wrong horse. Then it becomes all of us unenlightened fools who just cant see his genius.

    Parents can now get healthcare for their kids with pre-existing conditions. You should have heard the mom who was raving about it yesterday in Obama's town hall meeting.
