The ACA: Still Falling Short
National Review Online, by James C. Capretta

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/1/2014 5:24:37 PM

The Obamacare open-enrollment season (supposedly) closed yesterday, so it is good time to step back and assess where things stand with the law and its first-year implementation. Interestingly, Obamacare remains something of a Rorschach test for journalists and health-policy analysts. Looking at the same set of facts, two observers can reach very different conclusions. For instance, Noam Levey of the Los Angeles Times writes that Obamacare “has spurred the largest expansion in health coverage in America in half a century.” Meanwhile, health consultant Howard J. Peterson, writing at the Philadelphia Inquirer news site, says “the first four years of Obamacare has led to

Comments:
Jim Capretta is arguably the most informed writer about the inception, creation and implementation of Obamacare. You´ve seen him debating Ezekiel Imanuel and wiping the floor.

Dr. Betsey McCaughey is the person I remember more. From the very beginning she tried to educate all of us about ObamaCare. You never saw Betsey without her very thick binder which contained the 2000+ pages of ObamaCare, and it was obvious that Dr. McCaughey knew every comma and sub-paragraph.

As usual, the powers-that-be chose not to hear what she had to say.

"Rorschach test" - I love it.

Call it ink blots, tea leaves, goat entrails, tarot cards, or whatever, Obamacare beauty really is in the eyes of the political beholder. Every verdict from "This is the greatest achievement in the history of mankind" to "This is a complete and utter disaster."

I wish I had bought stock in rose-colored glasses.

Betsey McCaughey, yes agree with you # 2. She has details of the obamacare act at her fingertips. I have listened to her frequently; she is definitely school on the subject.

FTA: "But that wasn’t what was promised. Americans were told that reform would lower costs for everyone, and that no one would lose the policies they previously held and liked. People are dissatisfied with Obamacare because they’ve realized the law will never deliver on these promises. Indeed, just yesterday it was announced that health-care costs rose at the fastest pace in a decade in the last three months of 2013. Most Americans are seeing no benefit whatsoever from Obamacare, and in fact are paying much more than they ever have before."

If you think that is bad, just wait until the Obamacarebots decide what, if any, treatment you will receive. Good times ahead brought to you exclusively by the Democrat Party and the sycophants in the news media, academia, and entertainment industries and enforced by everyone´s favorite, non-politicized agency in the United States government, the IRS.

My company pushed us onto Obamacare via a private exchange. Our previous option had a $124 per pay period premium, no deductible, and $10 or $20 co-pay. The new plan still has about the same premium, but there is a $800 yearly deductible, and the copay is 20% of the office visit cost, or $50 to $60. How is that affordable?

I call it Obamacare for two reasons. 1) Its definitely not affordable, and 2) Obama has changed the law 38 times, and counting.

At least we didn´t have to spend hours attempting to sign up.

The preventative care procedures (esp. Colonoscopy) was WIDELY advertised by the ACA scamartists as bringing diagnostic costs down, with a long-term cost savings. They called it Preventive Medicine.

Everybody associated with implementing this massive consumer fraud should be in jail.

Seven million stated enrollees means nothing if they are people who don´t exist, don´t pay or just the usual people whose other job in liberal land is to vote numerous times under different names.

There was an article in our local newspaper about a woman who received her ACA papers or whatever and included was a voter registration card with the Democrat box already checked. Typical.

The hospital in my home town just closed. 500 people out of work in a small town where there is no longer any industry.

My daughter runs a bookkeeping department for doctors. She is working herself to death trying to jump through all the hoops of Obamacare and get the regular routine work accomplished. It does not help that some of the instructions received from the government are incorrect or, as the government pus it, "open to interpretation". Chaos already exists and there are almost 3000 pages most of which are still to be encountered.

It´s a shame we still can´t call this what it is. It´s socialized medicine light. It is having to be lied about and postponed because of the way they´re funding it. Instead of burying the costs in the progressive income tax they will have to bill the intended suckers err... payers directly. If your costs go up you´re a payer. If your costs go down you are a receiver. It will be about a 50-50 split. We are marching toward the Nordic Model.

Re #4... just today I heard on radio news that a ´new study´ (hey!) concludes that if you exercise and stay fit from a young age, your brain will work better at an older age. Also, that high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and high cholesterol will lower your brain´s ability to function.

In other words, if you have these conditions now, whatever your age, if you don´t get super skinny and look androgenous, then your life will not be worth keeping when YOUR time comes.

This is the set up... the elites will find (or create) doctors who will decide what illnesses and conditions are preventable, and if you don´t prevent them in yourself or your family, then obviously you aren´t worth staying on this planet. And Obamacare is the vehicle they are using. Hello, Death Panel.

(Not to mention that they´re planning on taking all our money. ALL. OF. IT. Even if they have to make our money totally worthless and re-invent a new currency. If we´re lucky, they´ll finance some of it back to us.)

We need to do what the leftists do when it´s something they don´t like. We need to stop being defensive and go on the attack. If your premiums have skyrocketed, your deductible is out of sight and if you are charged an outrageous sum for a procedure, send the bill/bills to the closest democrat marxist(or your closest lib relative). Let them pay it. If 200 or 300 million American ´speak truth to power´, the politicians will soon remedy this farce of a healthcare law.

My husband enrolled from the state exchange because he changed jobs and didn´t want to do COBRA because his employer provided health insurance was awful. BTW, he lost his acceptable health insurance last July because of Obamacare. They can cook numbers, statistics, dog poo, but it all comes up to the fact that middle-class people are going to lose acceptable health care to provide the people who don´t do anything productive with exceptional health care.

Had my taxes done tonight. This will be the last time I receive a refund. Since irs can only collect the Obamacare penalty from a tax refund I am making sure I won´t have a refund anymore. I will be filling out a new w4 Monday morning. Lost my employer ins. I went from $400 a month premium to $1,221 a month. The deductible quadrupled to $10,000. A lot of people are going to be surprised when they find out that they might have "health insurance" they will not receive benefits until they shell out thousands and thousands of dollars.

If it´s good enough for US, it´s good enough for those that passed this monstrosity. Had Congress had to go through this process, it would have been appealed.

Still waiting for someone to write about those in the industry put out of work by Ocare and their loss of income.

Millions of Americans, satisfied with their insurance and doctors, were put in this position, and not so much as a protest ?
Where is the outrage ?

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters.

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight.

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
