Think you have finally enrolled in Obamacare? Think again.

It appears that even if you have struggled through and chosen a plan, the website might not tell the insurance company. Thus, you think you have a plan but the insurance company knows nothing about it. What fun!

    In a sane America the government would develop a set of rules and regulations that would properly structure the healthcare insurance market
    and the company’s that serviced it related to minimum policy requirements, profit margins, accessibility and several other criteria and allow the “free market” to function. This solution would include private health insurance savings accounts controlled by individuals.

    This need for the government to insert itself between the individual and the provider is a sick and unnecessary extra step that has been included not for the benefit of the individual but for the further empowerment of the government and its push to create more and more dependency on government.

    This government and its displaying how little the people of America are considered in this scheme by the incompetency displayed in the system that they have built hopefully in a relatively short time will produce the push back from the people where real solutions are agreed to by a majority of BOTH party’s and passed into law. What we all need to be concerned about is that as per their apparent strategy seems to be that the economy and country is pushed so far down the road on this that there can be no other system employed but the sick and broken one that has been fashioned by this sick minded and dark administration.

    Lies and dependency are not the secure kind of foundation that America is naturally built upon, its what government is attempting to substitute it for.

    Think about this absurd statement President Obama made today: “The bottom line is this law (i.e. “Obamacare”) is working and will work in the future.”

    This Heathcare.gov is an anti-constitutional internet scam. It’s illegal or if you prefer, a “non-documented” law.

    This Obamascam law changes daily and is virtually whatever Barry deems through his abusive use of execute orders.

    This presidential poser and his administration are perpetrating an anti-constitutional act on the people and many democrats, academics and journalists are willingly participating in this big lie.

    This is no longer a farse; it is now a fraud.

    Regulations on minimum policy requirements, profit margins, and accessibility hardly count as free market.

    Past that, the point is Obama and many dems wants the gov to assume control. So regardless of the mathematical absurdity of the program, the squashing of public choice and access to health care, soaring costs, the boon for internet theft of money (access to federal accounts through the web site) access to peoples identity data, etc – they are for it.

    … voters, not so much.

    >..This solution would include private health insurance savings accounts controlled by individuals.

    Yeah the Reps and insurance companies had several good practical suggestions. None fit the political philosophy of the Dems.

    Yes, notice that the words “Free Market” are within quotation marks, it is a relative term.

    I think that we can agree that between the abusive nature of private insurance company’s, special interests and the over reach of the government that the healthcare industry and the company’s that provide their services to it need to be considered a “special” segment of the economy to the point at which proper governmental regulation is justified (as long as government understands where the line is and resists becoming a player instead of a referee).

    And yes, this is a slippery slope where there is more gray than black and white, something to be discussed and battled about in Congress.

    Points.

    Really all these groups need to be pulled out of medical care as a industry. Over half the cost is work to protect yourself from lawsuit, and most of the rest of the cost is paperwork to get through all these bureaucracies to get paid. FDA certifying stuff as safe needs to be done (though something like UL labs would be better) and you need something like insurance for emergencies, etc.

    Problem is Obama care (as a to honest Dem Senator explained on Meet the press a couple days back) assumes people are to dumb to figure out what insurance they need (hence why most traditional policies are outlawed now) and people all should pay for all insurance (even that they couldn’t possibly need – like maternity care insurance for single guys) to share the burden with those who need it.

    The entity “government” always tends to seek control, Obamacare is about the ultimate governmental control over the individuals of our country. Plain and simple. For the good of everyone of course.

    In addition the political class has created the “ignorant” American under the banner of ” helping the poor”, the more ignorant the people are the more need they have for someone to think for and protect them and therefore the more dependent they are on those who think for them. So the sick and infantilizing thought process goes.

    This is a sickness, this is the kind of thing that the Constitution was formed to combat. Adults need to be personally responsible for themselves and their family’s. The politicians that feed off of this sickness reject that whole concept. Government knows no bounds in helping, to the point at which it creates the inverted pyramid model where the people who are adults and responsible and pay for everything become out numbered by the created dependents.

    Sick, sick, sick.
