Our Wretched Healthcare System Is Headed Directly Into The Toilet
by Michael Snyder
The American Dream
You might as well stick a fork in the U.S. healthcare system because it is finished. Even before Obamacare, Americans paid far more for healthcare than anyone else in the world.
Now thanks to Obamacare we will be faced with much higher health insurance premiums, much higher taxes, much longer waits to see doctors and more government bureaucrats involved in our lives than ever before. As I have written about previously, the U.S. healthcare industry is a horrible mess, and now Obamacare is going to take the entire system directly into the toilet. All over America today, families are going broke because of outrageous health insurance costs and suffocating medical debt, doctors are going broke and leaving the profession because they can’t make a living, and sick people are dying because they cannot get the care that they need. So what solution does Obama give us? A nearly 3,000 page monstrosity that will destroy what is left of our crumbling healthcare system and that will unleash 16,000 new IRS agents to hunt down the millions of Americans that do not currently have health insurance. For those that love Big Brother socialist totalitarianism, Obamacare is a dream come true. For the rest of us it is a total nightmare.
Obamacare is truly a Trojan horse. The millions of Americans that support Obamacare believe that they have been “given” something. But that is a lie.
All of us aren’t going to be getting free government healthcare as a result of this law.
Instead, we are all being forced to buy health insurance policies that many Americans do not even want from deeply corrupt health insurance companies that make more money when they provide less healthcare. If we don’t buy government-mandated health insurance the IRS will be coming after us.
As a result of Obamacare, there will be more government intrusion in our lives than ever before. Hordes of government bureaucrats will now run the system, with predictable results.
If you think that the amount of paperwork in our healthcare system is bad now, just wait until this new law is fully implemented.
Is Obamacare complicated? For an answer to that question, just check out this flow chart. What sick minds came up with such a monstrosity?
Actually, we know that answer. The truth is that the big health insurance companies drafted much of the law. The Supreme Court decision upholding Obamacare was very good news for health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies and government bureaucrats. It was very bad news for doctors and patients.
So who is going to pay for this monstrous system?
You and I are.
Americans for Tax Reform has compiled a list of 21 of the new taxes that Americans will be paying as a result of Obamacare. And because Democrats have decided that they will fight to the death to save this law, the Republicans will have to take the White House, the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives to have any chance of fully repealing it.
