Obamacare Exposes The Deceit, Dishonesty And Lies Of The Obama Administration

It was kind of a rough day today. A friend of mine was given about six months by his doctor---not to live, to sign up for Obamacare...Leno

Note: Since this piece was posted, we now know the Obama administration and Democrats knew there would be countless cancellations. In other words, they lies.
  • In 2009 and countless times later, Pres. Obama promised Obamacare (The Affordable Care Act)  would let Americans keep their health plan if they liked it.
  • Yesterday, Florida Blue announced it would be cancelling 300,000 individual policies over Obamacare. The Newark Star Ledger reported in late summer that over 100,000 people in New Jersey will lose their health care plan. Last week, Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC confirmed some of their policies were cancelled.
  • In fact, even the knee-pad media could no longer hide the news. NBC reported earlier this week that "health plans are sending hundreds and thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage."
  • There are also thousands of anecdotal stories emerging of Americans having to pay more for their health care because of the ACA.
  • And if those horror stories are not enough, perhaps this news will nudge the remaining "believers" to finally wake up. Millions of Americans have either lost their jobs or have been relegated to part-time status as a direct result of Obamacare. For example, as reported by the Department of Labor last month, approximately 77% of all jobs created last fiscal year were part-time jobs.
  • Last month Gallup reported that 41% of small businesses froze hiring and blamed the Affordable Care Act. Hospitals have already laid off over 41,000 employees blaming it partially on Obamacare.

  • But even federal workers want no part of ACA. A recent survey of 2,500 federal employees and retirees found that only 2.9% want anything to do with ObamaCare.
  • The ObamaCare casualty list grew larger in the last two weeks due to the now infamous computer glitches---glitches that cost the American taxpayers about $500M.
  • And just today, the New York Post is reporting that the mandated electronic medical record system (EMR) is a disaster. A Philadelphia orthopedic physician described it this way: "If you think singing up for Obamacare is a nightmare, ask you doctor how the EMR mandate is going." Another physician said doctors are seeing more pixels than patients. Even the developers of the EMR system (ComCart Medical Software) criticized the feds and state governments for their misguided obsession to stipulate which features must be in the EMR's.

  • Finally, reports are emerging that the Obama administration knew of the Obamacare website glitches but ignored the warnings. Real Clear Politics
  • One added caveat separate from the Obamacare controversy has to be addressed. If the stimulus worked as the Obama administration and Democrats proclaimed for several years now, why are there over 90M Americans out of the workforce, the highest level in the last 30+ years?
  • One can only come to this conclusion: Obamacare, if it has done anything, exposed the deceit, dishonesty and lies of this administration and government. One cannot come to any other rational conclusion.
Postscript: Since this was posted, we learned about more deceit---one name---Gruber.
