We’re in a hard place. Last year, Obamacare initiated a program to reduce so-called “excess readmissions” in hospitals. Section 3025 requires all hospitals subject to the policy to pay a penalty, called a “payment adjustment,” up to 3% if they readmit too many Medicare patients within 30 days of discharge.
A new federal document tells the sorry truth: if you drop Medicare Part A (to protect yourself from rationing, for instance), you’ll be stripped of your social security benefits and forced to reimburse the government.
ST. PAUL, Minn.—Today’s critical decision in the U.S. District Court of Appeals in favor of the plaintiffs in Halbig vs. Burwell is the beginning of the end for Obamacare, says one health care expert and patient advocate.
Propaganda only works for so long. Pretty soon truth catches up to it. This is exactly what’s happening with electronic health records.
If you’re a doctor you know how bad the government-mandated electronic health record (EHR) is. But if you’re a patient, you may not realize that EHRs are endangering your life and jeopardizing medical excellence.
Never doubt the cleverness of Big Health. Obamacare does not redistribute wealth to the poor. Instead, the law’s various requirements redistribute wealth and wages to Obama’s partner in crime: large health plans. These corporations are then by law allowed to keep the cash and shortchange the care under “medical necessity” guidelines, demonstrating again that coverage is not care.
On April 17, he held a press conference to gloat. Here are a few of Obama’s comments that illuminate his frame of mind -- and his penchant for tall tales and propaganda:
I know every American isn’t going to agree with this law. But I think we can agree that it’s well past time to move on as a country…The point is the repeal debate is and should be over. The Affordable Care Act is working.
I’m not going to talk about Obama’s SOTU… except to say that I feel like I did the last time he had to get up and try to sell Obamacare to the nation: he doesn’t want to do it; he feels it’s beneath him; it’s four years after Obamacare and he’s perturbed that he still has to be marketing the law in a speech. So his comments lack passion.
Obamacare must not be lost in the debt ceiling debate. Try not to be distracted by false claims of America defaulting on its debt. According to Ronald Reagan’s deputy assistant Treasury secretary David Malpass, writing Oct. 10 in The Wall Street Journal:
Two new options for Obamacare resistance await. The first is found below in “News to Know” (Exchange Opt-Out Declaration). The second is a very important lawsuit is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court for consideration. This lawsuit will make the case that the individual and employer mandates are void due to unconstitutional processes engaged by the Democrat-led U.S. Congress. Without the mandates (and their penalties), Obamacare is toothless.
Is it truth or is it fiction? Two days ago the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) came out with an ASPE Issue Brief titled, “Fifty-Six Percent of the Uninsured Could Pay $100 or Less per Month for Coverage in 2014.”
