Obamacare: A Tangled Web of Lies and Loss

By Susan Stamper Brown

Susan BrownAs the chaotic healthcare enrollment period grinds to a halt, it is clear that Obamacare has changed America.

Oh, what a tangled web Liberals weaved when they practiced to deceive Americans -- about why it was "necessary" to dismantle America's healthcare system, when all that it really needed was minor tweaking. Coverage for pre-existing conditions and increasing the dependent age are tweaks upon most would agree.

No one really knows how many Americans actually have coverage through Obamacare. Maybe 6 million -or maybe not; whatever the case, it's probably not enough to prevent costs from increasing as early as next year. And there's no telling how many of those were previously uninsured.

We do know some things: Lots of people are uninsured and many of the insured have discovered it's almost impossible to get policies that don't restrict the latest medications or availability to top-notch hospitals. Millions of low income Americans once covered by states through Medicaid are now uninsured. Millions of policies people liked were cancelled and replaced with plans they didn't want and many cannot afford. Far too many had work hours cut back or lost their jobs altogether.

Liberals blame the Medicaid problem on states, policy cancellations on the insurance companies, and lost jobs and shortened hours on employers. Democrats systematically crushed America's healthcare system with a steamroller and now blame everyone except Flat Stanley and themselves for not fixing it fast enough.

The dust has settled temporarily — just long enough for many to realize that of all the things they've lost, their freedom is missed the most. Gone are the days when people were trusted to make their own choices about healthcare.

Dare to disobey Obamacare regulations and the IRS will come collecting. But an IRS penalty is nothing compared to the unprecedented assault on our religious freedoms. Hobby Lobby owners David and Barbara Green's case, Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby was argued before the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) March 25.

Hobby Lobby generously provides employees with health insurance, including birth control, but that's not enough for the administration, which demands they provide drugs the Greens religiously object to, believing they cause abortions. In the America we once knew, that would be enough.

Hobby Lobby's choices are minimal and costly. The Greens are forced to crucify their consciences on the cross of Obamacare or pay big-time. During the hearing, Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan suggested religious business owners like the Greens could drop coverage for all employees and pay a $2,000 "tax" per employee. Another alternative is to provide their generous health insurance plan as-is, and dole out a $500 million fine --per year. That is why they are fighting like hell and praying for God's favor.

If Hobby Lobby prevails based upon the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), as many suggest, Democrats will have their favorite president to blame. Ironically, at RFRA's signing ceremony President Bill Clinton jokingly said, "The power of God is such that even in the legislative process, miracles can happen."

The 381,517 word bill Obama signed bears little resemblance to the 11 million word Frankenbill unelected Obama officials have created. So let's put things into perspective. At 4,400 words, the U.S. Constitution is the shortest, oldest constitution of any major government in the world. It has withstood civil war, legal challenges, and thus far, the Obama administration. Yet it still stands immovable, thanks to God's grace and a few good men who warned us about what happens when the government gets too big...this big.

The time has come to elect people who agree with the founders about the government's size and put this toxic piece of legislation to rest. May its epitaph soon read: Herein lies Obamacare, the lie that grew from here to there; Twas laid to rest one happy day, when Americans united to put it away.

    The Obama NO health care is owned by the Democratic party; Not even one liberal Republican or independent voted for it; they saw it for what it was and now is A SHAM; A sham because it really is not about health care at all; It is about power and control over we the people turning a we the people Government into a Dictator tyrant Government controlled by the Evil Democratic party and it is working according to these ideals, plans, EVIL;

    Dems did this to themselves. Those who voted for them should cover the costs themselves. All of them.

      But they excluded Congress and others from Obamacare so we know it ain’t good. We are subjected at this time and place by an administrative bureaucrat government and not by our Constitution and Bill of Rights. This is pure communism in action and we have allowed it. Now, what are we going to do to restore insurance coverage, our guns, toilets, refrigerators, light bulbs and above all our freedom and liberty to choose for ourselves, right or wrong, in our lives. Think about this. The May march is coming so try and be there.

    Hind sight shows that the GOP has told far more lies about Obamacare than the Dems ever will. Remember Palin’s death panels????

      The death panels/rationing will follow when Obamacare becomes insolvent. Look at Great Britain and that’ll be us in a few years.

      My doctor did tell me just yesterday that if you develope certain diseases (cancer exp,) it will be determined by a panel of 15 people what type of treatment you will get based on your age and the long term prognosis. These 15 people won’t necessarily be medical people. If my life was in the hands of someone that knows nothing about my history I call that a death panel. Sarah Palin said just that.

      There are no death panels. The President made that crystal clear just today in his address to the country. If we can’t believe our own President who can we believe? What he didn’t tell us is that we have a Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) AKA Death Panels. That group of 15 will determine what treatment you will or not get AKA Rationing. Their decisions are final and there is no appeal procedure. If your treatment is approved, don’t get complacent. If an after treatment review determines that your treatment should not have been approved, you will have to pay back every penny. That is where all those additional IRS Agents come in. I am sure that 15 people cannot be expected to evaluate every case so I would assume, based on my research, that they will have branch offices in every major city that will provide input and recommendations. While watching the President speak I was surprised that Biden didn’t have an applause sign. Don’t take my word for all this. Do your own research. You will be in for a lot of interesting reading.

      Comment by beowolfe is a perfect example of how delusional the liberal democrats are and not only are the delusional, they are delusional Guppies. Believing anything, every Lie of their master.
      Vote all the immoral, dishonest Democrats OUT of office in Nov. 2014.

    I have seen government run health care in countries like Norway, Germany Sweden and Denmark because I lived there for a number of years. Under their government run health care, AKA socialized medicine, rationing has been practiced for decades. I agree that our current system is broken but Government run health care is not the answer. In a government run health system, many have to wait months and even years to get needed procedures or care for some of their problems. Many die before they receive that treatment. Corrupt government officials will use health care as a tool of control. Hitler did it. The Soviets did it as do many other socialized nations. In my opinion, that is what Obamacare will do to this country. If our system was so bad, why do a lot of foreigners come here from other countries to get the treatment they need? If Obamacare is so great, why did Congress exempt themselves from it? We all heard Nancy Pelosi say that we had to pass it to see what was in it. When Obama signed it, Congressman Dingle stated that they now have control of the people. Obama also said that if you like your Doctor and health care plan you can keep them. Many Obama voters painfully learned that was a lie. Older seniors, in my neighborhood, who have been dropped by their doctors and health care plans. In my opinion, Obamacare leads to Totalitarian Socialism in the United States. Trust me. You will be kicking yourself in the long run for trusting Obamacare.

    Let me throw this out there and it’s fact. My cousin lives in Quebec. She fell and ruptured a disk in her back. By the time she got to see her doctor, had a scheduled MRI and then her surgery to fix this disk she was bedridden for 7 months. Bedridden for 7 months for a 20-30 minute surgery. She works and contributes 50% of the family funds. It took every bit of money they had in their savings account to keep them going. I’ve had 4 disks repaired over the years and within 3 weeks I was to the Dr, had an MRI and my surgery and it was over with. This is where we’re headed. Is it really where we want to go?

      Sure, when you believe the empty suit that lives in the big white building, but the coverage doesn’t effect the the clowns on both sides of the big dome.

      Our government needs an enema.

    Do you reckon 1,000,000 people signed up 7 times each? Like the election?

    How many ACA victims were successfully and happily insured before the Obamacare destruction & obstruction? Oops? Is it obfuscation when Bob Beckle blusters that they can never get rid of Obamacare because too many people were signed up? … What?  … Isn’t that what the democrats and ONLY the democrats did to the previous larger number of people? – paying customers.  … Oh yeah. . . . Everyone that tells their own true story is a liar because they don’t follow the party line. Any of the folk who lost a better or cheaper health  insurance plan? …. Liars. Any who lost doctors, specialized medical treatment, hospitals, health coverage? … Those millions are …. Yep…. LIARS.   It’s them Liars, Koch Brothers, George Bush, Republicans. …. Climate change? …. If everywhere you go you keep smelling stink, check out your upper lip. – Or your underwear. It might be you. Democrats in leadership have stinking’ thinking’. They are liars to their rotten core.

    They scoff. They mock. They accuse. They lie. They deride.  They coverup. They murder. They create mayhem and disorder. – social unrest. They do not execute what they swore to execute. Or protect what they swore to protect.- The Constitution and the Law of the Land.  - and the citizenry are held hostage. They hold a lie as truth and truth as a lie. They  hold evil as good and good as evil. They speak foolishness as though it were wisdom. They deride wisdom as though it were foolishness. They are proud,  puffed up and they hold themselves as above God and God’s laws. Their immoral and evil deeds clearly state they have forgotten God. They remove every reminder of God everywhere they  can.  One day we will say ,”How the mighty have fallen.” – - and they will be no more. Hope and change is coming. Shalom. The Lord is more near than you think.

    I am a RN that has many Medicaid clients. It is a fact that many of them are getting “dumped” from their doctors because the doctor doesn’t get reimbursed enough to keep them. Many of those who have gotten dumped are very complex medically and end up without good care. My own son went on Obama Care and is happy to have some insurance coverage at last…I asked him how much he pays and the premium is only $50 a month. I asked him how much his deductible is and he answered $3500/yr. I asked him if he had the deductible and he said “NO WAY”! So the deal for him is: Yes he has insurance that he cannot afford…even with the subsidy and a deductible that (if he uses it) will never be paid! He is forty-three and healthy and I hope he stays that way. He only can find part time work and is a minimum wage worker. That is after 4 years in college! These are facts that have been repeated all across this nation. If you think this POTUS is so great you need your head examined. If you get it examined; remember that deductible as it will cost you big time.
