The latest perils of Obamacare have been revealed. The law is going to be more painful than many experts predicted. Besides the negative impact on quality of care, there will also be significant cost increases leading to reduced access to health insurance and patient care.
Huge Premium Increases. The New York Times just reported double-digit increases coming for health insurance. The reporter reminded readers that "one of the biggest objectives" of the Obama administration's law was to "stem the rapid rise in insurance costs for consumers."
Before he was elected, Mr. Obama promised a $2,500 reduction in family premiums in his first term, but premiums went up by $3.065. Now that Obamacare has passed, we know that what's in it, among many other painful realities, are even higher premiums. Mark Bertolini, CEO at Aetna, predicts health insurance premiums will double for small businesses and individuals. I predict more people to drop their insurance and pay the penalty.

Dropping private insurance is one of the most important things to Obama and he is happily skipping along to accomplish that.
When this thing really get rolling people are going to sh—
That is because up till 2013 the bill forced insurers to pay for lots of freebees, which it turns out where not free at all, on top of rising costs that were expected anyway.
But the real test will be when Dem states set-up those exchanges, or let the Feds do it. Then we will see what the care is like and how much it costs.
Someone should keep track of all employers who reduce employees hours due to this
And what lame excuse will he/reps come up with....
I guess even after they read it they didn’t understand it, will be one....
Just keep fighting your local medico and make it as difficult as you can on them to implement this bs.
I hate it but I am not the one who made MY dr. the tip of THEIR spear....
obamacare was never about care.
It is about control.
Dim party is now the cpusa.
Look at their actions.
In the long run, private employers should be out of the health insurance business, and they will be.
May as well think about how to make lemonade out of this:
Everyone will pay for poor socialized medicine, but if you actually want to have care that is acceptable to you, you’ll have to pay cash for private care, assuming it will be legal to do so.
Private care on a cash basis will be functional, efficient care. All the non-payers will be shifted to the public health system, and a lot of them will die through denial and delay of care. But that’s what America voted for.
IOW, the exact opposite of what Obama claimed. Great country.

Has anyone noticed the NEW PSA(?) in regards to a white guy, with beard, mentions father served in VN and he is a Vet, biker, has a job in Construction and the ad is extolling the joys of a FREE PHONE with 200 min, texting etc.
The ad refers you to a phone # and address (AT BOTTOM OF THIS)to find out if one is eligible. Out of morbid curiosity (or as the pundits put it “I did the research so you don’t have to”, when you open the link it introduces you to the product, mentions FREE says if you are on food stamps, eligible for medicare you MAY be eligible for the free phone.
I stopped at registering etc, bad enough my ‘phootprint’ is on the sight etc....
So now, ‘able’ bodied people are eligible for the “FREE PHONE”, and ‘they’ are covering all bases using white actors (in their idiotic minds), I guess because we keep implying the ‘only’ free phones were held by obamaites, jobamaites and holderites.
Doctors won’t be given licenses to practice unless they cooperate within nobamacare. Do you think these statist goons would allow competition?
“Doctors wont be given licenses to practice unless they cooperate within nobamacare. Do you think these statist goons would allow competition?”
I don’t know this to be true.....not saying it isn’t, and I do admit to not reading the entire bill.
I don’t know that private practice outside of the government mandates would be illegal. Reimbursement would be disallowed - I can see that, but cash for service, I think that would be difficult to disallow.
Agree, I also expect that doctors won't be able to practice medicine if they refuse to accept Medicare. Good health care will be moving offshore as more clinics and hospitals set up for medical tourism. Medical tourism is already up and running, but it will expand rapidly in friendly countries with good travel links to the US.

The VOTERS were asked what they wanted.
The POLITICIANS were asked what they wanted.
The ILLEGALS were asked what they wanted.
The UNEMPLOYED were asked what they wanted.
The ONLY person NOT asked as to their wants were—the DOCTORS.
When you find the doors to your Doctor’s office locked and the office dark, you will see what was done for your benefit.
Yes, doctors may be required to follow the tenets of OBAMALACKACARE, but they can’t be required to be doctors.
I think there will still be private practices but the average American citizen won't be able to afford them. They'll be for the rich and politicians while the rest of us have to suck up to substandard care.
Limbaugh spent much of his show yesterday dwelling on a NY Times article bemoaning the profit moaning in health care and asserting the proposition that it should not exist.
More ground prep by the MSM. When the rates start skyrocketing for everyone the media sphere will be saturated with such talk. Outrage against Grrrrrreeedy Insurance Companies will run rampant, and we’ll all be a few steps closer to Single Payer.
Amazing how a free market works when you let it.
