ObamaCare Must Die!

liar liar pants on fireThis week PolitiFact announced its award for 2013 Lie of the Year. The winner was Obama’s “If you like your plan/Dr you can keep it … Period!” According to past videos, he repeated that lie over 30 times. Via emails, it’s been proven that he DID know it was a lie even though publicly he denied it. On a daily basis, we learn of more major flaws of this disastrous Democrat program that is destroying lives and placing some people in real danger.

Eventually by the fall of 2014, it’s projected that the majority of Americans will have their health care plans changed or dropped as small businesses (under 50 employees) and large businesses (over 50 employees) portions of the law kick in.

As the ObamaCare web site receives a few more “fixes”, people are learning that their Dr’s may not be included in the ObamaCare network. Some Dr’s are deciding to not participate in the program due to minimal reimbursements.

If you’re not old enough to received Medicare, you may not understand why a Dr may choose to not take an ObamaCare patient and sometimes don’t service Medicare patients. (Medicaid is even worse.)

Three years ago I had my gall bladder removed via minor laparoscopy . It consisted of numerous pre-surgery tests, two different surgeries, and 2½ days in the hospital. It was the first time I used Medicare and was shocked at how Medicare discounted bills.

  • The surgeon’s bill for the 2 surgeries was $3,140. Medicare said he should only receive $2,237.  I paid 20% of the $2,237. The surgeon had to write-off the difference ($903).
  • The hospital bill was $24,905. Medicare determined it should be $12,766. I paid 9% of the latter amount and the hospital was stiffed for $12,139.
  • All the rest of the costs were similarly discounted.
  • Bottom line, bills were turned in totaling $33,953. Medicare approved only $18,154 for payment. My cost to pay was $1,774. The unpaid amount was written off by the various companies.

Medicare primarily covers seniors. Imagine what adding a large portion of the entire population under ObamaCare will do to profits for Dr’s and hospitals. They must make changes to the type of patients they see or decide to get out of the business. Given the years of education a Doctor must invest, plus, the horrendous cost of the malpractice insurance, what would you do?

A Doctor I’m currently seeing has a posted policy that patients are responsible for the whole bill regardless of what is paid by the insurer. If the doctors, hospital and labs had such a policy 3 years ago, I would have had to pay the $1,774 PLUS the unpaid $15,739 PLUS the $1248 annual premium. I’ll bet more Doctors, hospitals, and labs will implement similar policies for ObamaCare.

For a program that is supposed to save people money, ObamaCare has the real possibility of causing bankruptcy for many Americans.

Ohio Changes Mind On Obama

Ohio has been taking some heat on Twitter the past couple days due to the latest Quinnipiac University poll. The poll asked if respondents approved or disapproved Obama’s performance. The results showed him receiving the lowest approval he has ever had. That’s important to note coming from a traditional “swing” state.

  • 61% disapprove of the job Obama’s doing. 34% approve.evil eyed Obama
  • 57% don’t believe or trust Obama. 39% do.
  • 59% oppose of ObamaScare. 35% agree.

Obama won Ohio by only 103,431 votes or 50.1% of those who voted. Mitt had 48.2% of the votes. As with other states, Ohio had reports of voter fraud and counties where over 100% of registered voters “voted” for Obama.

POLITICO has a map of Ohio’s election results by county. It shows that of Ohio’s 88 counties, only 16 swung ‘blue’. The blue counties are the inner-city portions of the larger cities: Cleveland (the ObamaPhone gal), Columbus, Cincinnati plus union strongholds of Toledo, Dayton, Akron, Youngstown. The one exception is Athens County where Ohio University is located – a college known for its media degrees and strong liberal bias.

Back to the Twitter comments. As you can imagine, to go from 50% “FOR” to 61% “AGAINST” is a substantial swing in attitudes. The tweets mostly have been of the nature of “why didn’t Ohio get smart a year ago”. I wrote this article to show that 82% of Ohio counties ARE smart! After all we did vote in a GOP Governor, John Kasich … who has lowered taxes and unemployment; worked to grow industries and jobs; and eliminated a budget deficit!

Hopefully, Ohio will vote smarter in 2014.

We The People … For Freedom!

We have only a few more hours for the GOP to try to keep us from being ruled by Socialized Medicine. Obama and Harry Reid are refusing to negotiate, preferring instead to have the government shutdown rather than defund a terrible law. You might want to watch this video for encouragement.
