9-30 ObamaCare Deadline

FROM THE INTERNET

 

Gary North’s Tip of the Week – 9-30 ObamaCare Deadline
______________________________

_______
For uninsured people, a major loophole closes on Tuesday, October 1. A
special government website will shut down, closing health insurance
options. People’s range of options will shrink.

September 30 is the last day to act.

If you have no coverage on January 1, 2014, you will pay a tax.

For some people, their tax bracket will climb sharply. Remember, the Chief
Justice called this a tax, and on that basis, authorized the program.

By delaying employer coverage until 2015, Obama has closed another
loophole.

Details are here:

END
Another blessing from u-bam-aCare.
Another tax to pay.
And health care costs continue to rise thanks to YOUR government.

The facts no one wants to read.

Comments and referrals to this blog would be greatly appreciated.

u-bam-aCare Update

with one comment

FOUND ON THE INTERNET

 

Here’s just a small sample of what we already know about the absurdly named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:

1) Instead of bending the cost-curve down, health care consumers in many states will find the average premium prices rise 30% or 40% next year.

2) The federal government is unprepared to protect Obamacare’s information-technology system from hackers and identity thieves.

3) Americans may lose their doctors. The Department of Health and Human Services recently posted this on Healthcare.gov: “Depending on the plan you choose in the Marketplace, you may be able to keep your current doctor.”

4) There are 20 new or increased taxes in Obamacare.

5) The federal government’s own General Accounting Office reports Obamacare will increase the long-term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion.

6) A Heritage Foundation analysis found that Obamacare will force seniors to suffer higher out-of-pocket expenses over the next five years.

7) President Obama negotiated an exemption from Obamacare for members of Congress and their staff.

8) Three of the nation’s most influential union bosses (and Obama supporters) declared that Obamacare is poised to “destroy the foundation of the 40-hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.”

9) A Gallup poll found that more than 40% of small businesses have frozen hiring because of Obamacare.

10) The employer mandate requiring employers with 50 or more employees to provide health coverage has been postponed until after the 2014 election. I wonder why?

The list goes on … but the point has been made.

In the run-up to the passage of Obamacare, the president told us that his new law would cut the cost of our health care, would not increase the deficit, would not limit our choice of doctors or health plans and would create jobs. None of that was true.

The time has come to end this charade. The time to defund Obamacare is now.

END

 

If even a few of the above are true, u-bam-aCare is NOT the solution to the problems of the health care system in the United States.  The reality is most of the above are true.

u-bam-a put forth u-ba-aCare to buy votes and try to create a personal legacy.  He put his personal benefit above that of the citizens.  This is treason.

 

Everyone agrees the health care system is not working, but u-bam-aCare makes things worse NOT better.

Runaway Health Care Costs

leave a comment »

Every year health care costs go up, both in total and for specific treatments.

NO ONE has any answers.

Many people want socialized medicine.  This is when the government pays for most of the health care and controls the prices it pays.

This only results in lower quality health care including rationing while costs rise even more.

Others want more and more government regulation.

Again, this increases costs.

The first rule:  more government involvement means higher costs.

The second rule:  doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies will get their money.

The third rule:  not everyone can have the same level of health care.

Health care costs continue to take up a greater and greater share of both the government budget and total spending.

Health care costs MUST be significantly reduced; if not the nation will go bankrupt.

There are solutions.

The solutions will NOT come from politicians/government.
