ObamaCare effects in process

ObamaCare Takes Full Force in Next 18 Months, Americans Scrambling to Prepare

Tuesday, 16 Dec 2014 | Newsmax
By Newsmax Wires

Barring any new amendments, the massive new healthcare law dubbed “ObamaCare” is set to take full force in the next 12 to 18 months.

Most Americans don’t understand the new law and aren’t ready for its sweeping changes. These changes will impact everyone, seniors, small business, the employed, the unemployed, doctors, and medical professionals.

As a matter of fact, ObamaCare’s numerous provisions will soon alter:

  • The cost of health insurance, medical treatment, and prescription drugs . . .
  • The type and quality of healthcare available in the near future . . .
  • Even the ability to get in to see a doctor (any healthcare provider, for that matter) . . .

In fact, ObamaCare adds more than 30 million Americans to the healthcare rolls.

The program will be a massive tidal wave and experts say it may even cause doctor and nurse shortages.

And one study found that up to 40% of doctors are leaving practices due to the punitive regulations under ObamaCare.

This could result in health-threatening delays just to visit a doctor, as well as potentially substandard treatment. Plus, seniors in particular can expect alarming cuts to their Medicare benefits.

That’s because ObamaCare literally robs Peter to pay Paul by cutting $716 billion from Medicare over the next decade to fund other services under Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Worse, the law puts Medicaid on parity with Medicare, a fact that will likely weaken Medicare!

Given the election results, Americans are now seeking to prepare for these changes. Those who don’t could be hit very hard.

Right now, millions of Americans are desperately scrambling for answers as the new rules and regulations of ObamaCare begin to take hold.

ObamaCare could degrade the quality of your healthcare if you are not prepared.

H/T to Pepp for the article.

These effects are coming just as predicted, and seemingly right on schedule from the master planners. I do get a little weary of the Left acting as if these are just little hiccups and accidents that can be straightened out… like how they ironed it out originally.

There are those net affects of stealing from Medicare to fund it coming to full bloom. Oh remember how they denied that one? That was at the very same time they blamed the GOP for trying to cut Medicare. All the ObamaCare sound bites — lies as we call them.

Getting and being prepared? Well, that is a little hard for most people given the scope of this. In any other reality this might give birth to the largest class-action lawsuit in history. Barring that, what change will we see brought about?

It’s doubtful they will want to fix anything until we feel the full affects from it. The Obama minions would cry ‘that is hypothetical like the death panels’. So when the naysayers of ObamaCare end up being right, who cares to point it out and correct the record? Think of all the people who were demonized for opposing ObamaCare.

PPACA: built on a mountain of lies that keeps on growing. Politicos always say “next election.” We’ve had 4 elections about this monstrosity but it’s gotten worse, not better.

Fiscal Cliffhanger

Geithner is making the rounds again, and a lot of noise.

So Turbo Tim is the administration’s point man on the fiscal cliff negotiations. After all, someone has to do it. All Obama can find time for is campaigning, and come up with zingers he can call the Republicans. Now they are Scrooges for resisting tax hikes.

Actually what Republicans are looking for is Obama to address the other side of the negotiations, which he hasn’t. But leave it to Timmy the tax cheat to place all the blame on Republicans. That is while the prez goes to his echo chamber to rally his base. Rally them for what? To lobby the government. Someone forgot to tell the idiot master in charge that he is prez, and that his base is supposed to be America not uber left socialists.

So tax-challenged Tim takes to the air:

[Reuters]”The only thing standing in the way of [a deal] would be a refusal by Republicans to accept that rates are going to have to go up on the wealthiest Americans. And I don’t really see them doing that,” Geithner, who is leading the Obama administration’s fiscal cliff negotiations, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Too bad he’s about 10 lightyears from reality. But their campaign of projection never ends. I have a better idea. Why doesn’t Obama resign and sign a contract with a reality show? He should be able to stretch out a nice run there since he proves he can string out anything like nobody else. He can do at least one episode on how to strain a gnat. And “how to win election and do nothing, while blaming everyone else” would be another one. Oops we’ve already seen that one.

No, Timmy, the only “thing” standing in the way is the current White House, the campaigner in chief. See if you take all his issues away, what will he campaign on to demonize Republicans with? And this genius suggests giving Obama a blank check over our debt ceiling while he can’t deal with the debt he already ran up, much less admit it without invoking George Bush.

For a guy supposedly negotiating, he spends more time talking about what he won’t do.

And he continued on a roll:

The administration has said it is willing to find savings in the Medicare and Medicaid healthcare programs for the elderly and poor, but Geithner reiterated in an interview with ABC’s “This Week” that it would only be open to looking at changes in the Social Security retirement program outside of the context of a fiscal cliff deal.

If Obama cannot address spending in the context of a fiscal cliff, what makes any sane person believe he would do so outside the cliff hanger debacle? Obama is the grinch who stole sanity. As for Tim, there is always voice-over work for the next Disney film.

Apparently campaign 2012 has not ended and will continue right through 2016.

Changing the Dynamics

 

Remember Kerry’s infamous statement, after firing his campaign manager, that he was “changing the dynamics”.

What’s ironic now that Romney won the debate is that Kerry was Obama’s debate coach. Is that hillarious?

All bets are off and apparently those early celebration plans for Obama will be put on hold, with the Kolbe beef order. Everyone can have a bad night. But comparatively how bad? He told us after the attack on our embassador in Libya that they had a “bad day” loosing 4 people. I’ll bet to Obama that day did not compare to his evening in Colorado. What a shame he is probably a lot more concerned about this night than that “day”, enough to change his itinerary a little.

Obama always was a demogogue and idelogue, nothing more. The agent of change is not really the change agent. Surprise. “Mr Obama, you are now entering reality. We will be landing in a few moments. Fasten your seatbelt, you will experience heavy turbulance and a very rough landing.” (you may want to put your head between your knees and brace yourself too)

Even throwing out a life line for 100 thousand new teachers could not save him. I particularly liked Mitt’s use of the phrase “trickle down government”. It was a grand slam for which Obama has no response.

And despite stealing more speaking time than Mitt from early on, about 4 min total, it could not save his defenseless record. All the extra talk could not help. It is unexplainable. Then he threw out a Hail Mary to Bill Clinton who could not protect him. That was a classic example of sophistry. He attempted to claim that merely putting tax rates back to what they were under Clinton would recreate the economic windfall of those years. This is equivilent to telling the patient to click his heels three times and wish himself well.

So trying to recreate the effects of a booming economy will cause one. Gravity will now be reversed. Except for one thing: that was a completely different economy than now, minus a whole lot of our national debt. Clinton had the good fortune of a tech bubble where Obama has a debt bubble, which cannot continue forever. But he’s still blowing it up. If you looked up “specious” in the dictionary, this should be the example.

Still, it made for entertainment. Seeing Obama call out the Hollyweird crowd to campaign for him was a great trailer. Maybe they will soon realize what Obama meant by “all in”. Then they have to get the hang of how it works. When you say “forward” you are supposed to be looking and thinking backward, say toward Clinton…or anywhere except to reality. Just keep repeating the word “forward” while Obama talks about the past. And when Obama talks about saving Medicare he means cutting payments to providers, to plug the giant sucking sound in ObamaCare. Where’s Ross Perot when you really need him?

The liars’ convention

Democratic aide: GOP thinks “lying is a virtue”

(CBS News) As President Obama and the Democrats gear up for their convention in Charlotte, N.C., this week, Democrats unpacked their thoughts on last week’s Republican convention. Senior campaign aide Stephanie Cutter said she gathered that Republicans “think lying is a virtue.”

“It was a week of personal attacks, empty platitudes, and the one thing you were left with is they really think lying is a virtue,” Cutter said on “Face the Nation” Sunday.

When asked by host Bob Schieffer if she thinks Republicans are liars, she walked the statement back, slightly. “I heard a lot of things that weren’t true last week,” she said, pointing to vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan’s assertion that President Obama’s policies closed a Janesville, Wis., plant. The plant actually closed in 2008, before Mr. Obama took office. [….]

David Plouffe: Romney Campaign Built on ‘Tripod of Lies’

[excerpt]

(abc news) White House senior adviser David Plouffe charged that the Romney campaign is “built on a tripod of lies,” criticizing the Republican ticket for their attacks on President Obama over welfare, Medicare, and small businesses.

“Right now their campaign is built on a tripod of lies,” Plouffe told me this morning on “This Week.” “A welfare attack that is just absolutely untrue. The suggestion we’re raiding Medicare – absolutely untrue. And then this whole ‘we can’t build it’ nonsense.”

“I don’t think we’ve ever seen a presidential campaign ever that’s built on a foundation of absolute lies. And I think ultimately they’re going to pay a price for that,” Plouffe added.
[…/ ]
Democratic National Committee chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz charged Thursday that the Romney campaign was playing the race card with the welfare attack, using it as a “dog whistle” for voters to consider race.

Michelle Obama (convention speech)

“I love that for Barack, there is no such thing as “us” and “them” – he doesn’t care whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican, or none of the above … he knows that we all love our country … and he’s always ready to listen to good ideas … he’s always looking for the very best in everyone he meets.”

They’ve institutionalized it.
And we’ve never seen a presidency built on such a foundation of lies.

How Obamacare’s $716 Billion in Cuts Will Drive Doctors Out of Medicare


Roy Avik (Forbes.com contributor)

There are 600,000 physicians in America who care for the 48 million seniors on Medicare. Of the $716 billion that the Affordable Care Act cuts from the program over the next ten years, the largest chunk—$415 billion—comes from slashing Medicare’s reimbursement rates to doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes. This significant reduction in fees is driving many doctors to stop accepting new Medicare patients, making it harder for seniors to gain access to needed care. Here are a few of their stories.

Media narrative on Ryan failing

AP Fail: ‘Romney wants his risky pick to play it safe’

romneyryan

A week after being introduced as Mitt Romney’s VP running mate and Paul Ryan has taken the nation by storm, already reaching rock star status as he plays to overflow crowds.  Still, that doesn’t deter the lamestream media from trying to portray him as “risky” or “controversial” in their reporting.

All week we’ve been treated to an epic meltdown by the current Vice President, yet it’s Ryan who’s the risky candidate.

It’s absurd.    [ …/ ]

All the while MSN ignores  Obama’s 716 billion-dollar raid on Medicare. But they have their narrative, and they’re sticking to it.

Obama said he would have a health care solution for the country.  It would be discussed at a round table with doctors, hospital executives, pharmacies, and others involved in health care.  The discussions would be completely open and televised on CSPAN.  WOW.  I must have missed TV when they were telecast, (and Mr. Bill, you said Jon Lovitz shouldn’t call Obama a liar!)    Fancy Nancy then said you can’t read it until we pass it.  One idiot congressman asked why should we read it first, we don’t understand it!!
