Obamacare´s Majestic Failure Is
About Much More Than ´Glitches´

Forbes, by Scott W. Atlas, M.D.

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/26/2013 6:02:48 AM

The early impressions are undeniable. ObamaCare is struggling mightily to overcome the severe technical failures of its insurance websites that were expected, in fact fully predicted. The weekend news shows and the nation’s news outlets occupy themselves with technical flaws of the government websites. Interviews concentrate on whether these so-called glitches were foreseeable, if they could have been avoided, and how soon they will be solved. But understand one thing – despite the headlines decrying serious fumbling of the initial implementation, no doubt the Obama administration must be somewhat relieved. The mantra repeated by the mainstream media characterizing the Affordable

For generations, counties and states have found satisfactory ways to provide health care with the minimal amount of overhead costs and bureaucracy for the indigent. In Iowa for instance, we have a program called IowaCare, which provides university level healthcare for ~180,000 poor people. The regulations are 16 pages long. Eligibility determinations required no documentation. 96% of recipients pay nothing for this, and the annual taxpayers cost is less than $2000 per individual. A vast improvement in all respects to the ACA.

Poor people who are sick cannot provide the detailed documentation to overcome the bureaucratic obstructions of Obamacare. The cannot pay deductibles or co-pays. The Feds should stay out of individual healthcare!

For Americans, the technical failure is the best part.

They just don´t know how lucky they are yet.

I have read expert opinions that simple reform of MedicAid would have covered more people and cost less than a tenth of this monstrosity. Providing ´health care for all´ is obviously not the real goal. This is the once in a lifetime opportunity to permanently expand the vote bank that Liberals have been lying in wait for since FDR. The only saving grace the ´Rats have is that the other party is controlled by the stupidest group of politicians in American history.

The lofo young healthy generation will not blink until:
1) John Stewart starts to ridicule Obama or
2) They get a fine on their tax return for not paying for the expensive insurance they have to buy on a 28 hour paycheck.

Will it be in time for the midterm elections? Not if the RINOs get their way with a one year debacle delay.

The failure is not in the glitches. It is in the philosophy. Government is an unwieldy beast unable to competently manage a single program. It wastes money and ignores fraud. The worst part is that it is a nameless faceless bureaucratic nightmare ran by people who can be power hungry bullies. Your health care decisions will be made by a medical coding drone unconcerned with any existing circumstance you may have. The failure is not in the websites. That is a blessing! Anything that will stop this abomination from impacting every man, woman and child should be praised. The people of this country will rue the day Obamacare was passed. Better face the reality now than down the road when you are begging for a doctor´s appointment or approval of a medical procedure you need. These failures are the previews of coming attractions.

That Obama is a Communist is now without doubt. This lost interview proves it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjzPirAp0vM

A key Communist objective is "free" healthcare. Distressing to me is that the Democrat party stands with him shoulder to shoulder on this.

One of the Soviet goals was to take over one of our political parties. Sadly they have succeeded.

#9 has got it right. This was never about getting coverage for the uninsured. That was a convenient hook to obfuscate the real goal, which was to make a complete mess of the nation´s healthcare, carefully bankrupting the insurance industry, too. Then, the trap was set to make the public beg the feds for a rescue. Ergo, national healthcare one-payer system.

We are not doomed, however. We can, with the help of a public thoroughly disgusted with Obama´s grand "legacy", get rid of the worst parts, fine-tune the better parts, and get us back to very close to the way we were. Don´t lose hope.

How many people will lose their coverage? How many people won´t be able to afford their coverage? How many people will see the price of their coverage doubled or tripled? How many people will see a reduction in their healthcare coverage?

This is the real story. The website problems are minor in comparison. The problems will be ´fixed´, and the left will declare victory, and the people who cannot think for themselves will be believe it.

What a mess.

Our state provides millions of dollars in indigent care. Sometimes the university hospital is compensated, sometimes it is not (in which case it is being subsidized by others within the university system rather than by the taxpayers as a whole).

One of the real problems for Obama is that he prides himself on high tech approaches, particularly to the young. The young are looking at this mess and laughing. When they find out how much they´ll be charged they´ll cry, then scream. Hopefully they´ll then reach for the other lever in the voting booth.

#13 I doubt they´ll reach for the other lever but all that has to happen is that they decide to stay out of the booth. Fashion can help this. In 2008 the fad was for the lofo children to vote. If this debacle continues, with luck, fashion will flip 180 degrees in that group to where "only losers vote."

I don´t understand zero´s game plan. They knew in advance that the rollout was going to fail and they had a golden opportunity for a winning solution - compromise on the length of the GOP´s "unreasonable" demand to delay the individual mandate to avoid the shutdown.

The rollout´s failure would not have been exposed, the motive would have been spun as presidential leadership, the red state dems would not be on the hot seat, and the press would still blame the Tea Party for not caring about the downtrodden.

I understand that it´s about power and wealth transfer, but when the dust settles, this disaster will benifit the Tea Party´s position. Something more sinister is just below the surface and I haven´t seen anything worth risking senate seats over.

Two thoughts about this. One. Obozocare should be revoked in it´s entirety. Don´t spend another dime on it. Then, select a group consisting of doctors, hospital administrators, insurance executives, etc. and have them create a program, base solely on free market forces, for a health care system. And there can be provisions for those with pre-existing conditions. And, to keep prices down, severe changes in tort laws would have to be enacted. Get the lawyers out of medicine. And get the government out, too. Nothing else will work on a national scale.

Two. All of the messes we see around us, the Obozocare, the foreign policy, all of the exploding scandals, etc. simply re-enforces that wich I have been urging for some time now. It´s high time we had us another little revolution and clean out the cesspool that is D.C. Fix some problems with the Constitution and begin all over again. If we don´t, I don´t think we have a chance in he!!.

The Obamacare web site bares no resemblance to the glowing descriptions of it made repeatedly by Obama and his administration. In reality, the terms that accurately describe the site are FUBAR or TARFU. The term ´Glitches´, which refers to small, easily fixed, problems doesn´t begin to describe what is wrong with this site.

Obama says this problem is solved by calling an 800 telephone number. At the 800 number it is suggested that you go to the site. The web site now suggests that you call the 800 number. This is the Obamacare registration run-around -- problem solved!

If Obamacare cannot handle the relatively easy task of registering people, how can they process policy purchases or numerous medical claims for each person who purchases a policy? Will the Obamacare run-around be the answer to this problem as well? BOHICA!

Adding insult to injury, we now learn that a close friend of Michele Obama from her Princeton days is a senior officer in the company that was awarded the no-bid contract to build the ACA website. Making it look worse is that the bids of other companies were not even considered.

IN THE WORLD of early-20th-century African-American music and people obsessed by it, who can appear from one angle like a clique of pale and misanthropic scholar-gatherers and from another like a sizable chunk of the human population, there exist no ghosts more vexing than a couple of women identified on three ultrarare records made in 1930 and ’31 as Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley. There are musicians as obscure as Wiley and Thomas, and musicians as great, but in none does the Venn diagram of greatness and lostness reveal such vast and bewildering co-extent.

There’s something sinister on the airwaves. It’s sloppy, and it’s cynical, but sinister all the same, and it’s race-hate spewing from the absolute top of the Democratic Party. On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity” that no other “attorney general has ever had to deal with.” ["Black vote," check.] That same day, Politico published an interview where House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi more openly stoked race-hate, saying conservative opposition to amnesty “has a scent of Japanese internment.” ["Asian vote," check.] Later that

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Saturday that Vice President Joe Biden would travel to Kiev this month to show support for the Ukrainian government as U.S. officials expressed new concern over "violence and sabotage" by militants it said were apparently supported by Russia in eastern Ukraine.

It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise. She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship. President Obama nevertheless

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.” Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens had an op-ed piece in the Washington Post a couple of days ago that still has my brain doing backflips. He claims that, “Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the wisdom of such rules and to evaluate the costs and benefits that rule changes can be expected to produce.” Stevens certainly did not believe this when he signed onto decisions overturning Texas’s sodomy law, or when arguing that state laws limiting abortion were unconstitutional, or when striking down Louisiana’s death penalty for raping a child (this is

Brussels- Until recently, members of the Russian delegation to NATO were free to roam at will about the Western alliance´s headquarters here on the outskirts of the Belgian capital. The Russians had an awkward habit of listening intently to others´ conversations at the cafeteria, yet their presence was tolerated in the name of dialogue. Not anymore. In response to Vladimir Putin´s annexation of Crimea, NATO earlier this month suspended all practical cooperation with Moscow. Now most of the 70 or so Russian personnel enjoy about the same level of access to the alliance headquarters as journalists. It´s a small but significant sign

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”
