Posted on 05/05/2013 4:26:09 AM PDT by IbJensen
Obamacare is working fine, President Obama said yesterday in his press conference. Its made health insurance stronger, better, more secure than it was before.
There are just a few slight details left to be implemented, but we shouldnt worry about those, according to the President.
Right. Theres nothing to worry about, which is why Members of Congress are trying to exempt themselves and their staffs from Obamacare.
In reality, health insurance premiums are rising, and statesmeaning taxpayersare staring down some astronomical expenses. A new study from the Government Accountability Office cites Obamacare and Medicaid costs as budget busters for states that are just starting to get their budgets in order.
One of the biggest ways Obamacare planned to cover the uninsured was expanding Medicaid, the government health care program for low-income children, disabled Americans, pregnant women, and seniors. But this program isnt quality care, and it needs major reforms. Heritages Nina Owcharenko, the Preston A. Wells, Jr. Fellow, has explained that expanding Medicaid is bad for patients and taxpayers alike. Greater dependence on federal dollars tangles the states in bad fiscal policy and bad health care policy, Owcharenko says.
Yesterday, President Obama dismissed Obamacare opposition from the states as political. But its a very real bottom-line issue. Heritage research shows that 40 of 50 states would see increases in costs due the Obamacare Medicaid expansion. In just three years, costs would exceed any potential savings that have been suggested.
A new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation reports that more than half of Americans (53 percent) approve of efforts by opponents to change or stop the law so it has less impact on taxpayers, employers, and health care providers.
It sounds like Americans know better than the President how Obamacare is really going.
General Custer sent back a rider, saying that although his patrol was doing well, there were just a few little details to complete before returning home.
Who are you going to believe.
Obama or your lying eyes.
From his first “birth certificate” to his last
“Executive Order”, this pRes_ _ent cannot tell the truth.
Lucky for him that the US Congress loves Communism
and Islam more than America, truth, justice, and freedom.
Single Payer, here we come!
Exactly!. Cloward Piven strategy in action.
Edward Smith, Captain, RMS Titanic radio telegraphed to New York:
Making good headway. Expect to arrive early. No problems foreseen.
What did the lookout say?
Bagdad Bob! LOL
Notice he didn't mention the "affordable" facet of the "Affordable Care Act".
“Like the POS said....”fundamentally change the United States of America.”
One of the very few times he actually told the truth. And most people dismissed it as campaign rhetoric.
Is the Prezzy dropping Acid now, too?
It’s a giant waste of your time to ever listen to anything that mac daddy evr says because it’s nothing but lies.
