Another Health Care Delay

“The administration has quietly announced that it was delaying through October 2016 the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate for millions of Americans who have lost their healthcare coverage… Political consultant Dick Morris says the effect of this announcement with all the other Obamacare delays means that the act has now effectively been repealed.” – Newsmax 3-13-2014

Americans Have Been Hurt

Many Americans have lost the good insurance policies they had and are having trouble getting coverage that is even remotely comparable.

“State insurance commissioners and insurance companies must decide whether to offer plans that have already been canceled — and many have objected to the latest extension.

Also, many Americans have since been forced to find new policies, often facing higher premiums and deductibles or reduced coverage.” – Newsmax 3-13-14

Obamacare has cost America a lot. The incompetence of this president and this administration is “coming home to roost.” We are getting what we voted for. Our hope for the future is that the voters will learn their lesson. They better research their presidential candidates better the next time they vote.

Why shouldn’t Obamacare apply to our leaders? They shouldn’t! Write your congressman today and tell him to follow Lindsey Graham’s example and sign up for Obamacare.

The general public is pissed at all politicians. The health care bill was forced down their throats. The video points out that the public is coming to wish they could get rid of all of our political leaders and start with new ones. That day is on the way.

Take a look at this from MSNBC:

Obama’s health care plan will be worthless if you can’t find a doctor.

This from the Wall Street Journal, April 12, 2010″

Experts warn there won’t be enough doctors to treat the millions of people newly insured under the law. At current graduation and training rates, the nation could face a shortage of as many as 150,000 doctors in the next 15 years, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges.

That shortfall is predicted despite a push by teaching hospitals and medical schools to boost the number of U.S. doctors, which now totals about 954,000.

The greatest demand will be for primary-care physicians. These general practitioners, internists, family physicians and pediatricians will have a larger role under the new law, coordinating care for each patient.

The U.S. has 352,908 primary-care doctors now, and the college association estimates that 45,000 more will be needed by 2020. But the number of medical-school students entering family medicine fell more than a quarter between 2002 and 2007.

Some doctors think it could work.

A health care plan that is well though out could work, according to the physician in the video. Problem is, when did the government last have a well thought out plan for anything?

Free Markets Beat the Government

Our health care system is a disaster already. The reason: government! Insurance cannot be sold across state lines. Why? Government regulation. Pharmaceuticals are granted ridiculous protections by the government.

Take it from a physician who is a congressman. The government has too much control over our health care already! Turn things over to the free market and our health care system will be the best in the world.

Turn our health care system over to the government and the problems will multiply.
