The Final Step
Freedoms Journal ^ | July 23, 2012 | Armstrong Williams

Posted on 07/23/2012 11:48:23 PM PDT by george76

a few predictions about Obamacare. It will be implemented, jobs will be destroyed, the economy will tank, which means that more and more people will qualify for free stuff and fewer and fewer people will be able to pay for free stuff.

According to the Doctor Patient Medical Association, 83% of American doctors have considered retiring because ofObamacare.

Thousands of doctors will retire rather than worry about the new laws, taxes, and legal liabilities. Eventually, there won’t be enough doctors to take care of all these people qualifying for free stuff. The money for free stuff will run out.

The next step everyone already knows from looking at Canada and Europe. Waiting for a doctor will be like waiting for bread behind the Iron Curtain. The problem will worsen and worsen.

Since reaching the ripe old age of 73 this year,much to my surprise I might add,three doctors I have seen on a regular basis have packed it in.

Two more have notified me that they will be done at the end of the year.These are not old silver-haired senior citizens either...most are in their mid fifties or so.

My chiropractor son-in-law,who has six employees says he can't make it much longer even if he cuts to the bone,and so he faces a very uncertain future.

We cannot allow this to happen to us..Obamacare and Obama must go.

Obamacare is a WAD, it was written specifically to take the place of the Constitution. Obamacare was not fully written when signed into law, and is morphing as we speak. The truly scary part is Obamacare will never be fully written and will be modified many times over in order for the globalists to continually modify their objectives.

You sound like an old Navy Chief I worked for 30 years ago. The scary part is even folks at the VA are very concerned if Obama and Obamacare is not eradicated. The worst horror story I ever read is Obamacare, truthfully reading that obmanation far exceeds any Stephen King novels. This was never meant to supply affordable health care, this is a scam to shift wealth from private citizens to the federal government, plain and simple.

Obamacare should never have passed. Then, common sense told us that the SCOTUS would strike it down.

There are no coincidences in politics.

Other countries which implemented socialized medicine more or less successfully were far smaller in population than the USA, and had virtually no golden goose of medical research to kill (they used what came from America).

Obamacare stultifies the process of medical progress for the whole world, let alone what hideous treatment it will lead US citizens and residents to get.

The specter of Dr. Atlas shrugging like this will bring sense sooner or later to any attempts to keep Obamacare going.

It is even worse, because it is about population control.

I said from the beginning that this would not be undone by the court, and even worse it will just be renamed if Romney wins.

My question, which has went unanswered, is how can a law be written that openly exempts certain religious organizations? This defines all logic. Obamacare is discriminatory and is unconstitutional just based on the religious discrimination aspect.
Another question about certain groups obtaining waivers, what gives? How does this work? Will everyone in these waiver’d groups have a special code to enter on their tax forms? This really does not make sense, it defies logic and is unconstitutional.

Many groups given waivers are unions, which are allies of the Obama regime. If you understand that Obamacare is going to screw people not help them, it makes sense to exempt those on your side to protect them from it.

“If you understand that Obamacare is going to screw people not help them, it makes sense to exempt those on your side to protect them from it.”

If ObamaCare was ruled to be a tax I wonder what the future holds for those waivers, as well as how ObamaCare can be applied to tax-exempt religious organizations.

I didn’t like the Supreme Court ruling, but I don’t think it closed the boom on ObamaCare at all.

Thousands will retire and many more will go offshore. Caribbean countries have changed their laws and tax structures to attract American Medicine to their shores. India and Thailand are already established centers of Real Medicine. The best of the English and Canadian doctors are set up in now long-established practices in those places. Obamacare will be supplemented with laws that sequester a med student’s passport until he has done X amount of practice in the USA, that is if non governmental cross-border travel is permitted at all.

Congress has ceded almost all their power to regulatory agencies, now your very own existence must be justified to a 15 member health rationing board.

At our age it is not wise to go to the hospital.

It is good to be the king!

Excellent point, RedNeck.

First time I've thought about that.

They'll get NPs and PAs equipped with computers. Doctors will be relegated to overseers and consultants.

The money for free stuff will run out.

That happens no matter what.

The progressive, liberal socialists intend to eliminate 25,000,000 people from the United States. Do not know what the rest of the nations are planning in this regard.

This is real goal and intended to happen. Do you believe that the President we have now would not allow it?

Can someone tell me where are the doctors against Obamacare? Why are they not up in arms over this?

When I asked her, my doctor, who I am pretty sure voted for Obama, told me that she and her partner have “protected” themselves and that they “will quit practicing if they are affected adversely. They don’t need to work.”

So they and others quit, which leads to a shortage, and the solution will be to import foreign doctors whom are less than adequately trained and are often not able to speak English intelligibly. Oh yes, we will have the “best” care government can give us. They will outsource it.

You are absolutely right but unconstitutional has become a nonsense word with no actual meaning in this era.

As for your byline, me too. Thanks for your service.

Call me crazy, but ...

I have a disorder affecting the largest nerve of the brain. It is a fairly rare, extremely painful condition. Very high doses of morphine is the same as taking baby aspirin once a flare sets in. It takes high doses of a mixture of drugs to get the flare down. I will cease to exist without the correct meds every day and there are very few doctors even aware of the disorder. At one ER, out of state and away from home, I was told flat-out by the attending physician that “[it] does not exist in the hospital’s database so I can’t help you.” I would’ve been pushed out the door untreated had it not been for the kindness of a nurse who took my note (I can’t speak during flares) and looked up the disorder on the Internet. She gave the info to the doctor who finally took the time to read about it and did, eventually, get the flare down.

Now I am so afraid that the only doctor who’s ever successfully treated me is going to retire due to Obama’s amazingly idiotic plan.

Here comes the “call me crazy” bit. Lately, I’ve been eyeing veterinarian’s offices to see which one looks like a good place to go if need be. And I ain’t jokin’. :-)

May God help us all.

I’d recommend before he quits/retires you beg your doctor to prepare an explanation of your condition and treatment regimen.

You can load onto a zip drive and wear it around your neck, or load the files into your smartphone.
