The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of Obama care, the controversial federal health care reform program, in a blockbuster decision yesterday. As Crazy as it seems , I was just livid . I know that Obama care is not exactly 'socialized medicine' . I'd preferred a Canada Model of health care than the swindle the Supreme Court handed the American public. Here is the buzz . If you are uninsured , and if if you are illegal . You can go to the federal Government and get a card and receive benefits .If they are truly low income I might not have a problem BUT the majority of those on the public dole are families that are "generational" recipients. No father present yet the poor children keep on coming, at the expense of the hard-working middle class! Let's not forget the ILLEGALS that are also getting FREE care at the expense of American Citizens. I suspect that you might fit into one of these categories. Maybe I am going over the hill , but something is just not right with the individual mandate . My problem the way the Obama care is going to work is by Paul robbing Mary to Pay for Peter . The Public sector Unions should be outright angry as what is going to turn over in the next few years over Obama care , public sector workers are going to see their own employer medical benefits out of pocket increase . Not only will they be taxed , their employer benefits medical otherwise will be taxable income. I advise Public Sector Unionized Employees to drop their healthcare benefits in 2014 and go to the government and apply for the uninsured , and get cheaper medical with the feds. We are now officially slaves to the Federal Government. You will never earn money for yourself as your wages are taxed. You will never own your own property since they can take it if you don't pay taxes. And you could now essentially be jailed if you do not pay the "Penalty" "tax" or whatever for not having Insurance. And the Government, and their Insurance Corporation friends win again.
SOME OBAMA-CARE FACTS:
The fine for not purchasing health insurance under PPACA is $95 per person in 2014 (or 1% of taxable income, whichever is greater), $325 in 2015 (or 2%), and $695 in 2016 (or 2.5%). Thereafter, the mandate is indexed to inflation.How is healthcare costs already consuming almost 20% of the GDP and rising faster than the inflationary rate not already bankrupting America?
In Wisconsin, Gruber reported that people purchasing insurance for themselves on the individual market would see, on average, premium increases of 30 percent by 2016, relative to what would have happened in the absence of Obamacare. In Minnesota, the law would increase premiums by 29 percent over the same period. Colorado was the least worst off, with premiums under the law rising by only 19 percent.
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
Let's see coverage for preexisting. How much will the premiums cost? Insure 50 million uninsured. Would all of them have died without this? Name one person "on the system" that will now pay for insurance. How will they find everyone not buying insurance, they can't even find uninsured drivers until they get in a accident. If a company can pay a 2K fine instead of 6k in insurance why would they? When they decied to pay the fine and drop insurance what middle class worker will be able to pay for his familys insurance? Just does not make sense but the rich including pelosi, reed , kerry, edwards and most politicans republican and democrat will not have to worry. Just plain stupid. No tort reform no competion across state lines just feel good politican vote buying.
