With time-running out before the major provisions of President Obamas health care law are set to be implemented, the official tasked with making sure the laws key insurance exchanges are up and running is already lowering expectations.

I think we can count on it being a 3rd world experience.
The third world medical experience in these United States means the best of care at taxpayers expense happening right now in ERs across the country as we speak...wait...no habla Engleesh
Obamacare is 3rd World crap care.
or....try calling the IRS...everything is in their computer and the clerk has to go through a whole series of questions (most of which they already know your answers--so can cross check you) before coming to an answer.
Better still....just google :Liverpool pathway controversy"
I was going to say, I think it’s virtually guaranteed to be a third world experience. My fear is that 0bamaCare will be like an IED under Prius. Third world countries may be the sane places to flee to.
I think we can count on it being a nine line free fall cluster fluck.
Healthcare is totally screwed up anyway. Count on o’stoner’s gang to just make it worse.
‘We have to pass the bill (ACA) to see just how third-world the results will be’
Arrrr, I’m afraid that’s all too true, my FRiend. Not much we can do about it now but make the best of it individually and make sure the libs eat it politically.
If I want a “3rd World Experience” in American all I need to do is go to the grocery store on any given day.

The thread below was the first time I had ever heard of this, but I see the handwriting on the wall. This will become a necessity.
But....it has benefits! /sarc
More doctors are holding appointments with multiple patients, a trend some say may help ease a forecasted shortage of physicians.
By Michelle Andrews, Kaiser Health News
In recent years, a growing number of doctors have begun holding group appointments seeing up to a dozen patients with similar medical concerns all at once. Advocates of the approach say such visits allow doctors to treat more patients, spend more time with them (even if not one-on-one), increase appointment availability and improve health outcomes. ---[WHOSE?]
Some see group appointments as a way to ease looming physician shortages. According to a study published in December, meeting the country's health-care needs will require nearly 52,000 additional primary-care physicians by 2025. More than 8,000 of that total will be needed for the more than 27 million people newly insured under the Affordable Care Act.
"With Obamacare, we're going to get a lot of previously uninsured people coming into the system, and the question will be 'How are we going to service these people well?' " says Edward Noffsinger, who has developed group-visit models and consults with providers on their implementation. With that approach, "doctors can be more efficient and patients can have more time with their doctors."

1) Drop-in Group Medical Appointments (DIGMAs) for follow-up visits

In China they have “barefoot doctors” and I heard that works out pretty good.
Just for sh*ts and giggles, check out this calculator of what our premiums are going to be when Zerocare takes effect: http://laborcenter.berkeley.edu/healthpolicy/calculator/
I hope it’s not correct, but since there’s only 9 months until “go time,” it’s worth checking out to get an idea of they have in store for us peons.
Thanks for the tip re “Liverpool pathway controversy” — I hadn’t heard of that. The description on Wikipedia is just awful. It must be even worse than Wikipedia makes it out to be as the libs control content delivered there.
You’re right...it’s exactly what’s headed our way.
This whole disaster just makes me sick.
