"Your Doctor Won't See You Now"

Every day we hear more and more reports from people who were, indeed, happy with their healthcare insurance and their doctors, who have had their policies terminated, and are now facing more expensive plans, with higher deductibles, which plans do not necessarily cover their current physicians .

I want you to take a little trip with me down memory lane, to the early days of the administration's healthcare bamboozling: U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, (D-Bobblehead), said,
"We have 45,000 people in this country who are dying each year because they don't have health coverage. The Affordable Care Act provides coverage to virtually all of them, and the Republicans … want to stop it. I think it's horrifying."
Remember that argument? People are dying every day without health insurance. That's over 123 people dropping dead every day, because they don't have health insurance. It was the talking point du jour. Republicans are horrible, uncaring beasts who have no pity for all those people dying without health insurance, or something like that! The Huffington Post, Daily KOS, politicians and pundits on the left, all chimed in. I think some of the wind went out of their sails, with their argument to provide coverage, and thus save the lives, of "virtually all of" 13 million uninsured, when it was revealed that, when fully implemented in ten years, Obamacare would still leave 15 million Americans uninsured. What's the matter? Liberals don't care??? And that was before we learned of all the people who presently have insurance who are losing it.

Since it is a very real and present truth that millions of Americans will lose their current policies under Obamacare, and not everyone will be able to afford or will want the more expensive replacement policies, with higher deductibles, offered by healthcare.gov, would it then be fair to say that, since people die without insurance every day, and Obama causes more people to lose their insurance everyday, that there wouldn't be some overlap between the two? Liberals accused Romney of killing a man's wife when he lost his insurance, after being laid off from a company that Romney no longer controlled. So, any day now, liberals, logically consistent creatures that they are, (stop laughing!) will be accusing Obama of killing people, or at least wanting them dead, because his ACA will leave millions without insurance. Right? Right?? Beuller???

    Vicious in victory, deplorable in defeat. It's the RepublicanT way.

    "Every day we hear more and more reports from people who were, indeed, happy with their healthcare insurance and their doctors, who have had their policies terminated, and are now facing more expensive plans, with higher deductibles, which plans do not necessarily cover their current physicians."

    Every day we hear more and more half-truth reports from people who were, indeed, happy with their healthcare insurance and their doctors, who have had their policies terminated by their insurance companies, and are now facing more expensive plans, with higher deductibles, which plans do not necessarily cover their current physicians. Which of course NEVER EVER happened prior to the passing of ACA. It is funny how so many of these half-truth reports are found to be oh-so not true at all. Keep cwying and keep re-fighting your lost battles.

    1. "Which of course NEVER EVER happened prior to the passing of ACA"

      Don't be a child, Ema! Of course people lost their policies prior to the CACA. But never have so many at one time, with numbers that will stretch into millions, lost their policies directly because of a single piece of legislation, which the president lied through his teeth about, in order to get it passed and himself reelected.

      Stick to commenting on things you know about, dear Ema, if by any chance there are any!

    2. Ema, Millions of Americans are losing their health insurance and their doctors who have experience with individual health situations. That NEVER EVER would have happened without #ObamaCare (UN)Affordable Care Act.

    3. Ema knows that. (Either that, or she has less comprehension than a comatose gerbil) Libs are just spinning like dervishes to try to come up with something even vaguely plausible to try to mitigate the damage done by Obama's blatant and wanton lies.

      "Every village needs an idiot."

      Really? Is this necessary? Do you think referring to Proof as village idiot is conducive to civil discourse?

      You should have compassion for Proof. He is after all, suffering through a long period of realization that all the lies he has been pushing over the years, just aren't getting him anywhere...

    2. Not surprised that you don't recognize yourself in his comment, Ema. After all, I've challenged you to bring forth concrete evidence of so much as a single lie, and you have been unable to do so. As I said before, the testimony of the little voices in your head does not constitute real evidence. ('Challenged' does seem to be the operative word when talking about our dear, sweet Ema, though!)

    3. Odd that calling the author a liar is considered "civil discourse" in some circles. As far as Proof is concerned, I'm pretty sure if only the three of us lived in the village, Proof would not get the job as the village idiot. I might, but I think maybe I'd get passed over for the job as well. That only leaves one, but I don't want to name anyone because I may be accused of being uncivil. Even if I occasionally slip into that particular human failing, I don't want anyone to find out. I'm funny that way.
