Currently congresspeople and their staffs have 75% of their premiums paid for by the taxpayer. The plans they enjoy are also top notch. Top top notch.
But because of the way Obamacare was written, the law we needed to pass before we knew what was in it, lawmakers and their aides are about to be thrown into the vortex of the Obamacare healthcare “exchanges.” And guess what? They don’t wan’t to go down the hole.
Now, it’s perfectly OK for the average American to deal with this nightmare.
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.
As we have said before the American people at the very least should insist on the removal of the IRS from Obamacare. That of course means a complete revamp (repeal?) of the program and very powerful interests ranging from the current administration to the insurance and pharmaceutical industries like Obamacare just the way it is. They after all wrote it.
Looks like under Obamacare many lower skilled workers will end up with “skinny” or “bandaid” health insurance plans which may cover a few doctors visits and some prescriptions but may leave the insured exposed to catastrophic loss. This is exactly what we don’t need.
Why are they so worried? It’s not like anyone would ignore the law.
I mean it’s not like freedom of speech is the law, or the right to bear arms, or freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, or due process, or equal protection, or the War Powers Act is the law. Wait…
Those things ARE the law and the Obama administration has chosen to ignore them. Well, what’s good for Prez is good for the people I suppose. Maybe people should consider again just nullifying Obamacare.
It is our right under the law. We as a people can just say, “Go stick it in your ear.”
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.
