The Obamacare Mess

As the provisions of Obamacare kick into gear during Obama’s second term, we can see the consequences playing out:

Wow, the Democrats really screwed up on this one– after disregarding the Constitution and passing Obamacare without reading the bill (since Democrats know what’s best for the American people, who can’t take care of themselves– right?), their constituents are confused about why they’re experiencing  rising costs and higher insurance premiums because of Obamacare.

Update: Democrats trumpeted Obamacare as bringing an end to “discrimination against Americans with pre-existing conditions.”  Well, that didn’t last long!  Just as the provisions of Obamacare are starting to take effect in 2013, we’ve been told that “Tens of thousands of Americans who cannot get health insurance because of preexisting medical problems will be blocked from a program designed to help them because funding is running low. Obama administration officials said Friday that the state-based “high-risk pools” set up under the 2010 health-care law will be closed to new applicants as soon as Saturday and no later than March 2, depending on the state.” This is just more evidence that Obamacare is a dismal failure– it was marketed as a miraculous solution to America’s healthcare problems, but was dependent on non-existent funding.

Obama is going to tell you how to run your home.

“Under the broad banner of “health,” the federal government not only is telling Americans what to eat, it’s also telling us to make our homes safer. This week, the Obama administration released a “bold new vision for addressing the nation’s health and economic burdens caused by preventable hazards associated with the home.””

Obama believes that his power is unlimited, and is in open denial:
“This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency.  The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States.” — Obama

Let’s save $$$! No more mammograms or prostate cancer screenings.

Obama’s Health Department’s Task Force does not recommend mammograms for women under age 50…

… and his Task Force has also decided that men should not get prostate cancer screenings.

Legalize illegal immigrants to get them health care

Obamacare won’t cover illegal immigrants, but there won’t be any illegal immigrants after Obama legalizes them all.
