Domestic Policy – Obamacare

Barack H. Obama Second Term – ObamaCare
——
We need to be prepared.
ObamaCare will be the law of the land. Some of the results, over the next six
years will be:

EMPLOYERS will remove health care as an employee benefit. This will cause
employees to lose their preferred health care plan. These employees will need
to go to the health exchanges in their state to purchase their own health
insurance. The employer will pay a fine.
OR – Employers will reduce the hours of employees, making them part timers.
These employees will need to go to the health exchanges in their state to
purchase their own health insurance. The employer will pay a penalty to the
federal government for their “Cadillac” plan on their remaining
employees.
OR – Employers will fire employees. These former employees will need to go
to the health exchanges in their state to purchase their own health
insurance. The employer will pay a penalty to the federal government for
their “Cadillac” plan on their remaining employees. The employer will
hire independent contractors, companies that will supply labor, and/or
outsource jobs.
RELIGIOUS organizations will be required to provide health care choices that
are against their religious beliefs
TAXES on Health Care Insurance, Health Care Devices, Home Sales, and about a
dozen other taxes will be added.
EXCHANGES – Each state will have to set up a bureaucracy to handle this.
MEDICARE – Cut of almost 600 billion along with reduction of fees to doctors
will result in less quality health care.
INSURANCE – Increases in insurance policy costs of up to $5,000 from 2011
levels through 2015.
TREATMENT – Government control of treatment will result in “value”
based payments instead of allowing the doctor to use his judgment.(Independent Payment Advisory Board also known as “death panels”)
DEFICIT – ObamaCare, which will not be mostly implemented until 2014 is now
going to cost almost 1.8 Trillion Dollars over ten years, an estimate that is
almost .9 Trillion dollars higher than originally priced.

The effect of ObamaCare will be felt most by the elderly, infants, and the
infirm. These groups have the highest health care expenses and on a cost /
benefit evaluation the money would be better spent on individuals that are
mostly healthy.
