Liberals don’t make good doctors. Their prescription for health care reform is not a cure!
Doctors will be paid 20% less for procedures done under Medicare (beginning in 2014). Then they will have no increase for the next 10 years by law. Result? There will be a shortage of doctors.
Who wants to go to med school, pile up an enormous debt in student loans and know you will not earn much money? Some doctors might opt out making the demand for the fewer doctors higher resulting in long waiting lists, and or rationing of care.
Insurance companies will fail. They cannot charge enough premiums to cover the costs of operating without the ability to manage risk. (pre-existing conditions covered). And, the Democrats are going to see that making a profit as an insurance company does not happen. (Liberals hate profit and the free enterprise system) Some will argue this is not true. Explain the all out assault against business by the Democrats for the last two decades.
If you think you will not pay more over all you are delusional. Talk about voodoo economics, this administration is king of the bait and switch. Tanning salons are only the first small business to suffer because of the back room payoffs made by Reid and approved by Obama. The country is already broke, this puts us on a path to irreversible doom economically in the next 15 years or so.
The problem with the “Robin Hood” mentality of the Democrats is that the number of people earing lots of money are going to shrink drastically so Robin Hood will have fewer rich folks to rob, so of necessity he will have to come rob you. Tax, tax, tax, spend, spend, spend….This is the sum total of the Democrat agenda.
Thanks heavens there will be elections in 2010 and 2012!
What? You don't cover pre-existing conditions?
Only God can cover pre-existing conditions and win in the end. Anyone with an IQ equal to or above a turnip should know this. Sadly, our disillusioned political types evidently don’t have the common horse sense to understand such a simple conclusion.
It was bad enough when they decided that health care coverage is a “right” which I assume in their view is afforded by the U.S. Constitution. Of course there is no such right except in the twisted minds of those elected officials and their supporters who can’t care less about the Constitution. Of course political correctness usurped the founding documents authority long ago. These same pin heads also decided that every American had a “right” to own a home and presto the economy came tumbling down after the mortgage payments came due.
If the U.S. government decides that auto insurers must cover pre-existing conditions (it could happen…) how long can they stay in business? What an absurd idea! It is not however any more absurd than thinking health insurance companies can survive under the same restrictions. Oh, but the “public option” government insurance provider can survive, they don’t have to deal with inconveniences like profitability. Get the picture?
The whole motive of this assault the nation’s health insurance companies is to drive them out of business so that eventually every American person on American soil will have to feed at the government trough. The same goal is behind the demise of the auto industry in the U.S. It is the Democrat way.
The only way Democrats can gain and keep power is to have a huge segment of the voting public (dead and alive) totally dependent upon Uncle Sam for as many needs as possible. Their policies have kept minority people groups in the economic basement for decades and because a huge percentage of them are on some government subsidy they vote solidly Democrat in national elections.
I wonder if there is one or two Democrats in the Senate with enough common sense and love of country to defeat this freedom robbing bill now being debated? Will Senators represent the people who elected them? Many will not. They will vote the party line, their own self interests, at the expense of those who pay for their lavish lifestyles.
Someone has said that people have the government they deserve. I think this might be a true statement. I say read the U.S. Constitution and kick the bums out of office who ignore it. Don’t be stuck on stupid! For some it is a pre-existing condition and they are beyond help.
Fed up taxpayer,
