Grotesque Lies on Health Care by Michael Rozeff

3 posts / 0 new

I thought I might have a look at the Affordable Care Act (983 pages). I didn't have to go far before running into a problem. The first sentence of Title I reads

"This Act puts individuals, families and small business owners in control of their health care."

This is false. This is a LIE. Does this Act repeal Medicare? Does it repeal Medicaid? Does it get rid of all entry barriers to the practice of medicine? Does it remove all taxation relating to health care benefits? Does this Act remove all government activity, sanctions, rules, taxes, and subsidies relating to health care?

Do I need the government to put me in control of my health care? All I need is to be let alone to run my life. Do thousands of pages of government regulations put me in control of my health care?

It continues "Americans without insurance coverage will be able to choose the insurance coverage that works best for them in a new open, competitive insurance market..."

Another LIE. If there are penalties for not choosing a plan, how is that an open, competitive market? In an open market, one has the freedom to participate or not.

Do I need to read the rest of this trash?

You are not trained as a health care professional or don't work in a clinic, hospital, or pharamcy. You are most likely not a licensed health insurance agent. You probably didn't need treatment for a complex disease. You are not an expert in human resource management or corporate behavior or health care economics. Your comments are based on ignorance.

How do you know what he is or is not? And what makes you and expert?

Obamadon'tcare is just an expansion of the existing system that give insureance access to a bigger pool of premium payers and puts more costs on the backs of taxpayers as the government will continue to pay for the vast majority of medical costs and the corporate health insurance get to profit off of the rest. All at taxpayer expense. The corporate/government collusion marches on.

Bernie Sanders' big win in New Hampshire has given his campaign a big boost, but even Bernie knows that there's still a long primary season ahead.

And it's a serious criticism that's being thrown at Bernie.
