The story also has specifics — do read it.
Sounds just like the lottery system in Canada where having a doctor often times means you have to wait until someone else dies
It dawns on me also that not only will one not be able to get care but you still run the risk of being PENALIZED for not having the right kind of insurance or worse PENALIZED for having insurance that is too good
Obamacide offers no health insurance. However, it does offer way to steal.
These diminished medical networks are fueling growing concerns that many patients will still struggle to get care despite the nation's biggest healthcare expansion in half a century.
Obamacare didn't expand healthcare, it expanded healthcare coverage. It did precisely nothing to increase the availability of medical care, it only increased the number of people who'd have someone else pay for it.
In other words, it increased demand without doing anything to increase supply.
Only an idiot wouldn't have expected price increases and shortages.
My insurance, once “good,” is being accepted by less doctors now. It used to be a given you could see anyone- not anymore!
So...tell me again how limiting the number of doctors and hospitals in the pool will keep down costs and assure availability of services to those presently without?
Sheesh, these dumbass socialists don’t have a clue.
ACA is all about control. It has NOTHING to do with healthcare.
Noticing the “art” on the concrete structure in the right-hand area of the photo in the *L. A. Times* article ...
There might be a wee bit more money to take care of a person, if the money were not wasted on the piece of junk.
In the name of managing health care costs, ObamaCare dramatically increases administrative costs.
Otherwise, there are REDUCTIONS of:
- choice of your physician
- choice of your specialist
... though you are told you have “coverage,” which is akin to the automobile “coverage” that is without substance.
And finally, there is the MASSIVE GOVERNMENT INTRUSION into the life of every living human being (and probably some dead ones, too), as the government now defines EVERYBODY to be a welfare recipient, who is subject (repeat *that) to inspections:
- in and of their lives
- in and of their persons
- in and of their property
Thus, your “social security” is complete and without quality.
All, except for those who have political power sufficient to evade their being forced into such servitude to The Great Lie.
How long before they start talking about getting the SWAT teams to physically force doctors into giving top quality care to everyone regardless of whether or not they can afford it?
But don't worry, every Planned Parenthood death clinic will be a preferred provider.
“These diminished medical networks are fueling growing concerns that many patients will still struggle to get care despite the nation’s biggest healthcare expansion in half a century.”
This is an extreme example of careless writing, possibly even exceeding the worst of my own. The author should take up something he is qualified for after demonstrating such incompetence. THERE IS NO “healthcare” expansion, there is only an expansion of GOVERNMENT INTEFERENCE in healthcare. Healthcare cannot be expanded simply by writing a law, even a good one, let alone something as absurd and incomprehensible as the UNaffordable DON’T CARE A DAMN act.
Notice how the MSM blames the “insurers” instead of ObamaCare
I see this as a great opportunity for the entrepreneurs among us. Sure, I’ll have to plop down an extra $900 or so in taxes, but someone will still offer the insurance I WANT and am willing to PAY FOR, and others will continue to accept that insurance or cash in exchange for services.
This is the American way. Someone closes a door, so we find another door. Or go through the window. Or break down a wall. We will get through this, and it just might force us into a position where we actually fix the system.
Note I did not say 0bamacare will fix the system. However, it might bring about the circumstances that force the productive among us to fix the system in spite of 0bamacare.
Defund this monster!! Kill it before it kills us!!
Go, Ted, GO!!
