We have all heard the debates about the pros and cons of Obamacare, but for those who may be able to think for themselves nothing about this law has made any sense from the time it was announced.
For the sheeple in the audience, however, who only know what they are told by lying politicians and the mainstream media, here are some thoughts about the future of healthcare in the United States.
Our most clear warning shot was fired by Democrat poster child Nancy Pelosi early on when she famously articulated that Obamacare, a government controlled monstrosity encompassing 1/6 of our economy, needed to be passed so that we could see what was inside.
Not exactly a shining moment for the legislative process to be sure but more than that it was a stark indication that the complexity, cost to the taxpayer in both tax dollars and higher premiums and a likely drop in the quality of care was going to be on the horizon.
That's because, as has been proven time and time again, the government cannot do anything nearly as well, as efficiently or as inexpensively as the private sector which has to be concerned about something known as a balance sheet and income statement.
Of course in recent days President Obama himself has acknowledged the failure of his legacy legislation by delaying for at least a year the implementation of some of Obamacares key components.
Some might say he is doing this for political reasons (i.e. 2014 mid-term elections) and some might say because this albatross is coming apart at the seams.
Of course the correct answer is that he is doing it for both reasons.
As a consumer of healthcare, for me the key component is of course health. Affordable and good quality!
That said, how will 40 million more Americans with health insurance be taken care of by the current number of doctors working in the field given the lower reimbursement rates that will likely only continue to get lower and the continuing spike in administrative responsibilities (see New York I-Stop Law) being foisted on them by various government entities?
The answer to that question sadly is that your doctor, if you can find one, will be able to spend about a minute and a half with you. He will not get to know you and certainly will not have the time to use his skills as a diagnostician to find out what is really wrong with you.
Therein lies the biggest problem of all!
62% of doctors surveyed have said they will leave medicine due to Obamacare!
