Obamacare: When truth is just an opinion

By DARRELL BECK

On March 30, Dr. Wayne Iverson, a San Diego physician, tea party leader and member of Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) who strongly oppose the Democrats’ so-called “Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act” (aka Obamacare), presented an informational program at Ramona Mainstage to over 150 concerned citizens, revealing the sobering truth about Obamacare.

We were reminded that we must never forget the far-fetched words of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) when she said prior to the Obamacare vote: “We need to pass this bill to find out what’s in it.” Furthermore, we must never forget that well over 1 million Americans who opposed Obamacare took time away from their jobs and families to travel thousands of miles to Washington, D.C., only to have their protests ignored by Congressional Democrats, not one of whom read the bill before casting their votes for the largest tax increase and the greatest assault on liberty in American history.

Likewise, Americans must never forget that President Obama said prior to passage of Obamacare: ”This legislation is fully paid for, and will not add one single dime to our deficit.” “If you like your doctor and your health care, you can keep them both.” Obamacare will “save the typical family $2,500 a year.”

We should never forget Obama’s word, because from Obama’s viewpoint truth is nonexistent and is merely an opinion.

Now that the bill is law, we are beginning to discover what’s really in the 2,500-plus page bill that has mysteriously grown to over 20,000 pages of regulations and mandates even before it becomes effective in 2014. We are learning about rationed care, doctor shortages, low-cost/high volume treatment practices presided over by administrative panels that will uphold penalties against the people who refuse to participate, while making sure the punishments are enforced by the IRS.

We are learning how Obamacare robs billions of dollars from Medicare and will raise medical costs beyond reason and eventually reduce the quality of healthcare and seriously damage the patient/doctor relationship. We are learning how Obamacare will drive our healthcare insurance companies out of business in order to eliminate competition, thus creating a single payer provider. We will discover that in the end the federal government will be the sole provider who will grab total control over every aspect of our lives.

For example, if we own a firearm, under Obamacare guns will likely be declared unsafe, and therefore if we get hurt Obamacare won’t cover our injuries. Therefore, if we don’t want to be penalized or go to jail, we won’t own a firearm. And what about our automobile? Is it safe? Does it produce the right kind and amount of emissions? Maybe we will decide we won’t need an auto because our Obamacare probably won’t cover alleged injuries heaped upon Mother Earth by creating excessive auto emissions.

Are we partaking of Obamacare-approved vegetables and juices to maintain healthy bodies? Are we using Obamacare-approved light bulbs so we won’t damage our eyes? Are we bathing and exercising according to Obamacare guidelines? We will eventually discover that Obamacare bureaucrats will wield enormous powers to arbitrarily devise never-ending mischief in order to regulate the people.

From Obamacare charts we will discover that if we are between about 20 years of age to 55 years of age we are considered to be in our prime, having greater value to the Obama collective than a young child or an older citizen who are at a more vulnerable age, considered either too young to contribute or too old to be of practical use to the collective. Thus under Obamacare the question is — do we have a right to be born, to exist or to die, and who grants that right?

Some people may eventually learn that Obamacare ignores the Hippocratic Oath by determining that people are no longer individuals of free will, worthy of healthcare, whether they are young or old, but are merely considered useful cogs within the wheels of the collective. Some may learn that despite all the happy talk about how much the progressives “care about the welfare of the people,” Obamacare is a gross violation of human rights, the U.S. Constitution, and is a severe threat to life and liberty.

Of course we must understand that the crown jewel of socialism or collectivism is socialized medicine, because it eliminates individual sovereignty and turns our lives over to an unelected, unaccountable board of “Determinators,” aka “Death Panels” who are in charge of deciding who is worthy of living or dying, or who gets the “red pill.” So you must now realize, under Obamacare your body and soul belongs to the “Determinators.”

    Medicare is socialized medicine.

    Mr. Beck must also support eliminating that government program, if he fears socialized medicine so much.

    I was born and raised in a country where health care is all managed by the government (France), and I can tell that it has both good and bad.
    The good is that the out-of-pocket cost to the user is about one tenth of what it costs here in the US; for instance, the same chest MRI exam costs 150 Euros ($200) in France, while it costs in California between $500 (if you don't have it declared to your insurance) and $2,000 (if you have it declared to your insurance) – and I'm talking about the same exam.
    The other good there in France is that when you get sick, your monthly premium doesn't increase like it does here in the US. You also get covered in France no matter how high the cost of the treatment, unlike here in the US where, once the dollar amount limit set by your insurance company has been reached, you're moved into a low cost facility where you are basically left to die as fast as possible.
    The bad is that French's Medical Health care is poorly managed and chronically in the the red, adding more debt, year after years, mainly because people take advantage of it. We see herds of foreigners coming from all over the world and getting unlimited free health care right away as soon as they set foot in France.
    I guess that the so-called Obamacare will have both good and bad, and it will take a few years before the systems can be audited and adjusted, to make sure that is doesn't take all of us in the hole. No doubt that we'll need to keep an eye on it.
    One thing that I hope Obamacare will prevent is insurance companies doubling or tripling our monthly premium as soon as a doctor reports a potential health concern, like it is the case right now. More and more often, we avoid having medical check-ups performed by fear that a potential health concern would be reported to our insurance company, and see our monthly premium go to the roof as a consequence, as if we were being classified as bad people for having the potential of becoming sick one day (pretty much like auto insurances).
    While insurance companies must remain sound businesses, I don't like the fact that they are solely run as profit generating entities that actually make money out of not providing coverage. The latest attempt is this "geographic based premium" approach, where the insurance companies will adjust our monthly premium depending on where we live. I have no doubt that no matter where we live (rural area or large city), our monthly premium will go up, in rural areas like Ramona because we are far away from cost effective medical facilities, and in large cities because we are exposed to pollution.
    A worrying sign is that both banks and insurance companies are combined in the same business model (more and more often run by mutual funds companies), and banks have proven what they are capable of, foreclosing homes and throwing millions of people out in the street over the past few years.
    I'm not saying that Obamacare is good, I'm just saying let's give it a try and adjust it as we go along.

    Herve you have the "we have to pass it to read it" mentality. There certainly are problems with our healthcare system and truthfully they are primarily caused by government interference in what we do, I'm an RN. We have plenty of hoops to jump through which can't help but increase costs. Has ANY socialized medical system ever been responsive, efficient, responsible to the patient? NONE! You may rave about the French system but then you say "care is poorly managed and chronically in the red, adding more debt, year after years, mainly because people take advantage of it. " OK how is that any different than what BHO's system would provide? We already have people taking advantage, the gov't has mandated we expend precious resources attending to anyone who walks through the door with a self described emergency
