"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."
Ronald Reagan

Retired Geek - Obama's Presidency Condensed - Part 3

ObamaCare - Affordable Health Care Act

Barack Obama stated that Americans cannot afford to pay for Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals and their Medications.

BUT Americans could afford to pay for Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals and Medications by adding almost 200 NEW Government Agencies, thousands of NEW Government bureaucrats, millions of NEW Patients that consists of Illegal Aliens and others who will NOT pay ANYTHING into the Health Care System.

The Liberal Progressive 'Messiah', calls this 'Modern Day Miracle' - ObamaCare - The Affordable Health Care Act.

ObamaCare the Largest Tax Increase in U.S. History:ObamaCare is the biggest tax increase in U.S. history, on the working poor and middle-class, right in the middle of one of this country’s worst recessions.

ObamaCare will slam every business owner and every one of the 50% of Americans who currently pay their taxes. The other 50% are being deceived if they think they’re going to get a free ride – because Medicaid and MediCare will be 'robbed' of $50 Billion and they are both broke or soon will be. Recipients of Obama’s “free health care” will have fewer choices and less accessibility.

19,000 NEW federal bureaucrats will be added to the I.R.S. (Internal Revenue Service) to collect this tax should anyone fail to pay. If this is 'Not a Tax', as the White House claims, why is the I.R.S. assigned to collect it?

H.R.3590 - Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:H.R. 3509 consisted of 2409 pages of legalese with numerous references to other laws and documents, making it virtually impossible for ANYONE to understand. There are 17 pages of Table of Contents alone.
For comparison, the 1965 Civil Rights Act had only 4 pages, the Declaration of Independence, including all 56 signatures, was one single hand-written sheet of paper; the full and complete original Constitution of the United States of America was six pages long.

What Exactly is in the Bill:"But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy. Furthermore, we believe that health care reform, again I said at the beginning of my remarks, that we sent the three pillars that the President’s economic stabilization and job creation initiatives were education and innovation—innovation begins in the classroom—clean energy and climate, addressing the climate issues in an innovative way to keep us number one and competitive in the world with the new technology, and the third, first among equals I may say, is health care, health insurance reform."
Nancy Pelosi

Waiting will be the issue with ObamaCare:Waiting to see a Doctor, decided upon by a Government worker.

Waiting to see Tests a Government worker will authorize.

Waiting to see what Treatments a Government worker will allow you to have.

Waiting to see what Prescriptions or Medications a Government worker decides they will pay for.

Waiting to see if You can go to a Hospital or which Hospital a Government worker allow.

Waiting to see how many days a Government worker will allow you to stay in the Hospital.

Waiting to see if a Government worker will authorize any Therapy or follow up treatments for you once you leave the Hospital.

ObamaCare will be WAIT - WAIT -WAIT and you will have to rely on ObamaHope, that you won't die while waiting for a Government worker to make these decisions for you and your Doctor.

Why will there be so much Waiting?:The Doctor to patient numbers in America are somewhere around 1500 (or less) for the average of a General Practitioner.

Case loads on existing Doctors and Nurses will increase exponentially causing fatigue, long hours and horrible working conditions.

Approximately 30,000 NEW Doctors will have to be added for the 42,000,000 new patients.

The Nurse to Doctor numbers are around 2 - 5 on average in America.

That would mean adding 60,000 - 150,000 new Nurses for the 42,000,000 new patients.

If ObamaCare started today, those new Doctors and Nurses would not be available for two - seven years at best.

This would not include facilities and other necessary staff and Hospitals - WAIT - WAIT - WAIT.

ObamaCare's Planned Bureaucracy:ObamaCare will add almost 200 NEW Government Agencies, thousands of NEW Government bureaucrats and a paper trail maze that NO one could follow. Remember it will take YEARS for these bureaucrats making decisions for YOU and YOUR Doctor, to achieve "Government Efficiency" levels.

Undoing ObamaCare:Undoing ObamaCare will be a Herculean task and NOT simply a few Executive Orders, now that the Supreme Court has ruled ObamaCare Constitutional.

Democrats and Liberal Progressives will file endless lawsuits against any and all attempts to dismantle ObamaCare and of course everything hinges on Barack Obama's defeat in the 2012 Election and Republicans holding control in the United States House of Representatives and gaining the Majority in the United States Senate.

It is imperative that Barack Obama is defeated in 2012 or he will have more latitude after the election.

Mitt Romney on On ObamaCare:
"Our mission is clear: If we want to get rid of Obamacare, we're going to have to replace President Obama. My mission is to make sure we do exactly that..."
Mitt Romney

This will clearly become a key talking point in the 2012 election now. A recent Reuters poll found that 77 percent of Republicans and 44 percent of Independents would be more likely to vote for a politician this November if they ran on a platform of repealing ObamaCare.
