ObamaCare Still a Disaster

Pages: 1 2

“I am a refugee,” my anesthesiologist told me after I had awakened from my third surgery in 12 years — one to repair a muscle tear in my left shoulder and two for the same disc in my lower back. “I am part of the British ‘brain drain’ of the late ’60s. Doctors could not make any money. So I left.” Britain’s loss, my gain. The same surgery 12 years ago required a two-day stay in a hospital. Last week, after a two-hour surgery, I left the same day as an outpatient.

But under ObamaCare, we can expect a loss of talent and a decline in quality of care. Thousands of us, the doctor explained, abandoned England to practice medicine in America. “So, how’s this?” my doctor said. “I left the U.K. to get away from the government telling me how to practice, what to charge — and now we are getting the same thing. ObamaCare stinks, and the people will regret it. What happened to the docs there will happen here.”

Great Britain began practicing socialized medicine through the taxpayer-funded National Health Services in 1948. And indeed, one of the first U.K. studies on the emigration of their native-born physicians, “British Doctors at Home and Abroad,” published in 1964, noted that, beginning in the 1950s, their docs were leaving for “high-income” countries at an alarming rate: “Many of them stressed the wider field of work they could undertake in general practice abroad and criticized the limited role of the general practitioner in England.” And nearly half a century later, Britain’s “brain drain” continues.

Medical advances require research and development. And as much as government spends on health care and medical research, the private sector spends much more. But ObamaCare places a tax on medical equipment manufacturers, to raise $20 billion for the federal coffers when it goes into full effect in 2013. As a result, some medical device manufacturers are already closing up shop or downsizing to reflect lower profits under ObamaCare. Some canceled plans for new U.S. plants, looking to other parts of the world. Many manufacturers have already announced significant layoffs, and most also look to other alternatives, including cutting research and development, and passing along the tax’s costs to the patients.

In addition to the excise tax on medical device manufacturers, ObamaCare imposes many more taxes, including the following: an individual mandate excise tax for adults who don’t purchase “qualifying” health insurance; an employer mandate tax for those companies who don’t offer health coverage; and a surtax on investment income — making the rate as high as 43.4 percent on gross income from interest, annuities, royalties, net rents and passive income for families making more than $250,000.

Given this, will we see the same private-sector investments in the health care field, as ObamaCare imposes ever more regulations designed at increasing “accessibility” and “controlling costs”?

What about costs?

    This article is deeply misleading. It conflates the new health reform law with Medicare and Medicaid as a whole. The same report that estimated rising costs for Medicare and Medicaid also lowered the expected costs of the new healthcare law, believing that fewer Americans would be affected by it that previously thought. Unfortunately Larry Elder's poor and deceptive writing mask this simple fact, but that's expected from anyone who's listened to his show or flipped through one of his books down at the remainder store.

    • mlcblog

      I simply disagree. I work in the field, and it is obvious to me that this thing is an unmitigated disaster.

            HAHAHAH!!

            Roger is so angry that I know his brother David, that he is freaking out.

            that's what happens to stalkers.

            Why do you think I have a brother, and one named David?

            I'm just wondering if you always get this spastic when you go through coolaid withdrawal. Did they promise you a big glass when you make sense for the first time each day?

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Don't worry about how I know.

            It's funny to watch the way you deny it.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            I haven't denied or affirmed any of it one way or the other.

            Bedtime for bozo, why do you think I care if you do or don't do anything? You can't show I'm wrong, you can't meet me in the arena of debate and you're a douche in general. You're the kind of person who I wouldn't sell a used car to.

            And you aren't very well connected to current events or reality in general. It's funny the way you don't even realize how you're losing when we tangle. Still holding the bong with both hands?

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            I have alredy schooled and crushed you in debate so many times, it's not even funny. Remeber Reagan and FDR? Remember the 2000 election Bush stole. In both cases you sent me articles PROVING I was right.

            I know you won't deny you have a brother named David, but we both know it's true. They told me at the Hesperia Public Library.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            You didn't show Reagan supported the big government FDR policies, only that during the depression and shortly after that he was a member of the democrat party.

            Do you actually really think you won that?

            How sad.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            You claimed Reagan was a conservative while President of SAG.

            I schooled you that he wasn't and now you are making up straw man arguments.

            A sad little liar with dyssemia at Hesperia public library.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            He was a conservative while president of SAG. You seem to have the failed belief that the democrats have always been constantly for marxism as they are now. During the time they were more for the working man, then for the controlling government in charge.

            You haven't schooled anyone but the readers about what a hack you are.

            And you still need to medicate the little dancing ponies in your head.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Here is a speech in 1948, a year after he became SAG President.
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJDhS4oUm0M

            He is campaigning for Hubert Humphry and Truman and suporrting their New Deal policies,. He is against the large profits of corporations and supports unions and labor.

            He supports federal programs and is against tax cuts for the wealthy.

            Reagan helped Hubert Humphrey win that 1948 election while Hubert Humphrey was a leading New Deal liberal Democrat.

            You're just an idiot that didn't learn any history at Desert College.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            And Hubert Humphrey was against the nazi socialist regime, so was Truman.

            You just can't make your case, can you?

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            that doesn't even make any sense. So Truman and Humphrey were not big government New Deal liberals? Is that what you are saying?

            You are just one d umb f u c k.

            No wonder you don't have a girlfriend and have never had sex.

            No wonder you stare at children at your public library.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            They weren't bald faced liars like the republicans at that time were.

            Listen to the tape, Reagan explains why he was mad at them.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            I did listen to the tape BEFORE I schooled you about the tape.

            You have no argument, you are like a little kid.

            Really!! You don't know how to debate facts like an adult.

            Truman and Humphery were big government New Deal supporters, and Reagan helped them get re-elected

            Those are the facts, and you can cry and act like a little kid all you want, but you have no argument and nothing to show to state your case.

            F u c k ing little baby.

            No wonder you like to stare at children.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Still whining. Still determind that you can decide what Reagan meant more than he can?

            What a moron. Why do you use the same syntax as wee wee?

            You still using "I know you are, but what am I?

            I guess you don't have time to think of something witty while sating at children at the library.

            Is that why Davis doesn't want you to be left alone with his children?

            Reagan was a conservative while trying to get New Deal liberals elected?

            It's so fun having you as my little b i t ch .

            My, you just can't get any smarter even with all your profiles. I guess you and your junior college teachers can't figure out how to make a failed marxist left leaning slant sound anything but a failure.

            Don't worry about it, it's always failed everytime it's tried.

            Nutcase Desert College failure trying to use I know you are but what am I? to destract from his own pitiful life.

            I see you are adding fake reviews to your book. what a loser.

            HAHAHAHAH!!

            That book would make David even more frighted to leave you alone with hi children.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            My the little bong holder put down his cheeto bag long enough to spew some more.I don't see you pushing a book, so who's the failure? And I'll have to check the reviews. I hope it's people that actually read the book, unlike you. You could have at least read the free sample and pretended to know what you're talking about.And David says that Robert would probably be better suited to discussing things with you, he'll be glad to set up the meeting if you want.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            I done media work I'm sure you'r\ve seen

            Yes I have read the sample, it was way worse than I had even imagined.

            Is Robert going to defend his little sissy brother just liek he did while you were kids and being beat up by girls?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            I let Robert speak for himself, since he does the same for me.And your cheetos must be either running low or you forgot to put the bong down in time.I still don't see anything with your name on it. So, who's the loser?

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Tell robert to come on ID an we can talk.

            I'm sure you're seen my work, you just don't know it's me.

            Tell Robert I made you my little b i t ch with the Reagan video.

            One doesn't 'tell' Robert anything. You don't have a clue who I am or what makes my family what it is. You're just a small little cheeto eater with pretenses at humanity.

            And that Reagan video was not what you would love to say it is. So, you're the female dog digging at the door.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Your lies and denial over the Reagan video is in keeping with all your lies.

            Now be a good little b i t ch and maybe I'll buy you a new leash.

            Reagan was what he was.

            How do your denials not fit into what you just said?

            I bet your poor bong hates to see you coming.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Yes, Reagan was what he was, a New Deal democrat while SAG President.
            The video humiliated you pretty bad. But being my bi i t c h is going to be worse.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            And what was a new deal democrat?A big government socialist. Reagan was not that.He was an angry voter who didn't like establishment republicans lying. He was mad because that lying led to high inflation and understood inflation steals for everyone who has money.And your only dog is you.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            You are creating your own subjective definition inorder to redifine what Reagan's political views were.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Again I have shown that Reagan used words like 'inflation' in context as a bad thing. Something he later worked to stop as President.Again I have shown that he was upset with republican establishment hacks, someone he worked against to get his parties nomination.So, I won and you're just squealing like a little girl that noticed a bug in her hair. Again.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Your BS about inflation doesn't help you just like making up your own opinions of the New Deal doesn't help you. You are like a little wet p u s s y that will lie, che3at and distract, ANYTHING but admit you are wrong. That is why you have never had a girlfriend and have to stare at children at the library. That is why your book faiuled. Only your c u m filled stuffed rat Ralph understands you.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Didn't you watch the video? He gave an example of a 91 year old man forced to return to work because of inflation.Just because the video doesn't support you doesn't mean you should ignore what he said.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Being against inflation doesn't mean you are a conservative.. Just more BS distractions from your little wet p u s s y. Could you ask one of your nieces how to argue like a big boy? I love to watch what a pathological loser you are when you have no argument.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Of course it does. Being for policies that induce inflation is to violate many of the ideals that define conservatism.Wealth belongs with the people, to ignore that is a liberal idea.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Inflation is caused in many ways. Reagan was against the inflation being caused by giving tax cuts to the rich. It proves he was a New Deal Democrat just like EVERY histoprian in the world says he was. You are the ONLY person that says he wasn't a. You are just a liar, a sad little man that has nebr had a girlfriend, stares at children at the library, and has a failed book that nobody likes.

            Try harder.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Reagan was against inflation because of people like the 91 year old he used as an example.Why not make up something interesting like Reagan was against inflation because it made your bong too hard to hold with both hands? And you're still a liar spewing marxist propaganda. Reagan was what he was, you can't change his legacy now and get away with it.Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library | Home

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Reagan blamed the Republicans for inflation because the new Republican congress was ending New Deal polices that created high wages for labor. He blamed inflation on the Republican congress giving tax cuts to the wealthy.

            You can’t BS your way out of this. You can’t be taken seriously while you compulsively lie. The video has humiliated you and has exposed you a the little p u s s y you have always been. It’s too bad you never read any books in the library and waste all your time staring at children.

            Reagan blamed them for inflation, and never wanted to nationalize or legislate his way past the free market system.You still loose. Reagan was what he was.Even if your talking points won't admit it.Don't you have more troll reviews so write on my book?

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            He was angry that Republicans were weakening New Deal policies. So that means he was a New Deal Democrat stupid.

            You try so hard to BS, but there is nothing you can do. Name one historian that says Reagan was not a New Deal Democrat when he became President of SAG you stupid f u c k.

            No wonder David and Robert think your are a homo.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Of course he wasn't. He was never 'pro socialist' and it was the new deal polices that made inflation and weakened the economy. That's why the depression wasn't fixed until after FDR died. You might as well say that Reagan was pro-UFO since he didn't outright say he was against them.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Did you actually pay attention to that speech? He ripped the republicans for not cutting taxes, for inflation, for not providing the leadership and following through with their campaign promises.

            If Reagan were around today, he'd be Boehner's worst nightmare. And Boehner needs someone like that, since he's a failed hack that has been a failure at every turn.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Are you really such a dumb f u c k?

            You aren't even trying to pretend anymore, just lying out your ass.

            The speech proves he was a liberal, you are a failure and I love to watch you lie.

            your lies will send you to hell, you shouldn't call yourself a christian if you are going to lie like a little p u s s y.

            He ripped Republicans for only cutting taxes for the rich, just like Republicans do today.

            And you ignore everything else he says because you are a dumb f u c k liar.

            Oh, I had a chat with one of my brothers. This is what he said to me.

            Tell your brother what a little p u s s y you are, can't even have a logical conservation with you because you can't admit you are wrong.

            No it's not.
            And I didn't lose the argument Reagan was simply not advocating for big government. He was personally opposed to inflation and promises the republicans didn't keep.

            And you sound like such bitter angry person. Are you old dancing boy that no longer has the looks for it?

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            If there were a report button you would have pressed it a thousand times already while calling your brother David.

            My my, you still keep wanting to put me in any sentence referring to sex. That's not healthy, and it's a total waste of time.

            Do you wash the cheetos off your hand before putting my pic up on your bedroom ceiling?

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            We are only talking about the time he was president of SAG you jerk off.

            And you asked me to provide you proof of his political views during that snippet of his life.

            You got what you asked for, and now you complain that it got shoved up your f u c k i n g a s s.

            If you would spend more time learning history and less time staring at children at the Hesperia public librar, maybe you would have known about Reagan a little better.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            His life stood for something.

            And glimpses of that could be found even in that early speech. Like his fundamental dislike for the republican establishment that doesn't seem to have changed in all this time.

            You ought to be cheering on the tea party for it's efforts in taking the party back as Reagan did.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            What his life stood for in retrospect is not the concern of the debate.

            Reagan was NOT a conservative while President of the SAG union.And you will never find a respectible conservative or historian that would say that he was.

            Any other points about Reagan is just an attempt to distract.

            Your inability to admit you were wrong and then your multipule attempts to lie and cover up your mistake, sheds light on ALL of your comments on Intense Debate.

            So for that, you have to be my little b i t c h for now on.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            You are trying to redefine what conservative means. Did he want bigger government? Did he want a softer defense? Did he want marxists in the streets? Nope. He was conservative. And he was mad in that video because the republican leadership was just as lame then as it is now.

            You're still owned.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            He was running for Trumanand Humpfrey, the two biggest supporters of the New Deal.

            You have no argument, you just a BS liar.

            Show some proof
            a s s wipe. I've already shown you the proof he was for big governement.

            I know it's hard being my little b i t c h, but it will be harder after you are in hell for lying.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Of course I do, based on what he actually said bothered him about republicans. They didn't lower taxes and they didn't stop inflation.

            Do facts always bother you?

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Reagan was botheedr that they lowered taxes.

            Why can't you even listen to a simpl,e speech without getting confused.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Did you listen to that speech? The word inflation came up several times.

            You are such a sad piece of work. Why the bad mood? Did your sex partner develop a leak and you can't blow it up until the glue on the patch dries?

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Lying and making up BS isn't going to help. You lost and are already my little b i t c h.

            Still delusional. That's our little marxist on medical marijuana.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            You still pretend that claiming Reagan was for a liberal all powerful government and then say I've lost? Yeah, good luck with that. Even with all your profiles you're a bong holding cheeto eater.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            That's right, cry little b i t c h. You olost trying to call Reagab a conservative while SAG president. HAHAHAH!!!

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Reagan knew some of the conservative values, like no inflation and keeping promises when you're running for election.But the year he made that video was a bit before the Goldwater campaign started coalescing the banner of conservatism.And you're still holding the bong with both hands.

          • SheilaJacksonLeeHERO

            Come on little b i t c h. Try and at least find some evidence, some historian, or something. You look so beaten trying to find a way to say you won this debate.

            Well I just did comment on it. How Un-American of you to try and censor me. You try and stand up for this country but what to limit what other say.

            Yes, and it made no sense and was from a position of someone outside the realm of reasonableness.

            If you want to pretend the Bible has any validity then you submit to it. But after you have gotten done saying how it's not for you, don't think you can use it as a club on someone.

      You have to be a paid political propagandist. You can't try to pretzel logic your way out of this mess they call obamacare.
      You're not much better as a supporter of the murderous and deceptive cult they call islam either.

      • maturin20

        I thank you for thinking that my work merits compensation, it's a high compliment.

        • Ted G

          Lets see now…If I were to define propagandist, it would include deception, misdirection, misinformation and basically being an outright lying POS.
          So if that's something your proud of well…but its hardly a compliment.

          But don't rely solely on my understanding, how about anyone else chiming in on their own understanding of the definition of propagandist?

    Obamacare has always been a disaster. That is why they would not let us see what was in it before they enacted into law because they knew the majority of Americans opposed it. And, why would Obama give his cronies and unions so many waivers if it was such a good plan?? I bet Congress is not going to go on Obamacare!! The CBO just came out with all the data about how much this mess is going to cost us if not repealed. BILLIONS more than estimated!! So, how is this saving the taxpayer money??

  • oldtimer

    All I know is that three of the obamacare regulations went into effect last year, allowing for preexisting conditions, paying for one preventive care exam per year, and allowing parents to keep children up to 26 on their plans. As a self paying person, my premium went up 81% because of this, what will happen when other regulations go into effect?

  • Rybbe

    Plus, if Teflon Obam gets his way, most doctors are all part of the "1% filthy rich not paying their fair share of taxes" so they will also be hit with a higher personal tax bill. Between the trillions Obamacare will save, coupled with the quadrillions that the 1% Filthy Rich Tax will bring in, Teflon Obam will go down as the most brilliant president in history. Oh,ya, I forgot, no matter what he does, he will go down as one of the most brilliant presidents in history.

    For those who think that socialized medicine is a good idea should talk to Mr. Elder's doctor and those from countries like them. They probably oppose this as much as we do.

  • Schlomotion

    I think that the medical equipment manufacturers tax owes to the fact that the federal government wants a taste of the windfall of riches that medical equipment manufacturers reap from overpriced, overused machinery and the massive drain that they, in collusion with HMOs, place on health insurance premiums. Anyone with a health care plan has been subjected to this unnecessary and fetishistic application of machines that go "ping!' before picking their pocket.
