The Worst Is Yet To Come With Obamacare

Obamacare total system failure


Everyone knows the Healthcare.gov website is a complete failure and people are having an incredibly difficult time signing up for Obamacare. Medical records are getting lost. Insurance companies are not getting applications sent to them from the Obamacare site. Millions have lost their coverage despite the President making one of the most unequivocal promises ever made by a chief executive, but these fiascoes  are just the beginning for Obama's signature healthcare legislation. It will most certainly get much, much worse.

Why is that the case? Think about it, this is just stage one of the entire plan. People are just in the process of signing up and it may be as little as a mere 18,000 people have officially been put on the rolls as paid members of the government run healthcare initiative.

With a dismal track record so far of handling just the basics of not even being able to log on to a simple website, there has not been a single claim filed, or a doctor paid, or a prescription filled or any treatment given under Obamacare. No army of bureaucrats are sorting through mounds of paperwork. There are no medical records being looked over by fraud agents, the are no monthly or bi-weekly visits to pharmacists yet, the mechanics of actually functioning in a giant behemoth of inept and emotionless paper pushers sorting through the personal lives and medical histories of millions of people has yet to begin under the disaster that is shaping up to become another government system that can't even begin to function properly.

Millions can't get coverage because a billion dollar website was hastily built by people that were cronies of Michelle Obama, just wait till the rest of these pressing needs starts to put weight on an already broken system.

We haven't seen anything yet.

Read more below on the lie of Obamacare from the New York Post:

"ObamaCare was sold on a trinity of lies.”

That ornate phrase, more suitable for the Book of Revelations or perhaps the next “Game of Thrones,” installment comes from my colleague Rich Lowry. But I like it.

Most people know the first deception in the triumvirate of deceit: “If you like your health insurance you can keep it, period.” The second leg in the tripod of deception was “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”

But the third plank in the triad of disinformation hasn’t gotten much attention: ObamaCare will save you, me and the country a lot of money. This lie took several forms.

First, Obama promised on numerous occasions that the average family of four will save $2,500 a year in premiums. Where did that number come from? Three Harvard economists wrote a memo in 2007 in which they claimed that then-Sen. Obama’s health-care plan would reduce national health-care spending by $200 billion. Then, according to The New York Times, the authors “divided [$200 billion] by the country’s population, multiplied for a family of four, and rounded down slightly to a number that was easy to grasp: $2,500.”

In September, the Obama administration’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services used far more rigorous methods to predict that ObamaCare would increase national health-care spending by $621 billion. Using Obama’s own math, that would mean — according to Chris Conover, an economist at the American Enterprise Institute and Duke University — each family of four in America will spend an additional $7,450 thanks to ObamaCare.

Of course, that methodology is still bogus. But it’s probably closer to the truth.

The president and his allies also insisted that all of ObamaCare’s “free” preventative care would save the country vast amounts of money. As Obama put it in 2012: “As part of the health care reform law that I signed last year, all insurance plans are required to cover preventive care at no cost. That means free check-ups, free mam­mograms, immunizations and other basic services. We fought for this because it saves lives and it saves money — for families, for businesses, for government, for everybody.”

That’s not true, either. First of all, you’d think people would understand that there is no such thing as “at no cost.” You are paying for “free” mammograms, blood tests and the rest, even if you don’t see a line item for them on your bill. And even if you’re poor enough that you don’t even see a bill, that doesn’t mean no one’s paying. That’s why millions of Americans who’ve lost their health insurance thanks to ObamaCare are discovering that the new plans it offers are either more expensive, have higher deductibles or both.
