If Obamacare must exist, this is the absolute minimum which should happen. The IRS managing the healthcare of the United States is a recipe for disaster, both on the broadest and most individual levels.
Tell me who other than the insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies benefit from Obamacare? The poorest Americans were covered under Medicaid. Most other people were covered under their employers. The self-employed could buy fairly good plans for far less than $20,000 per year per family.
Maybe there’s a silver lining to Obamacare if more doctors follow the lead of this fellow in Maine. I pray that they do.
Dr. Michael Ciampi is able to charge half of what he used to charge for his services now that the red tape and general pain of dealing with deeply regulated insurance companies has been eliminated. He figures that the hassle is only going to get worse with Obamacare, so he has decided to go another route.
The IRS is the key enforcer, implementer, etc for Obamacare. This should have never been allowed to happen in the first place, but in the wake of the “enemies list” scandal the American people should insist on a total revamp of the program (at the very least) and the removal of the Internal Revenue Service as chief administrator.
