Obamacare limits access to doctors. From the Los Angeles Times: “A month into the most sweeping changes to healthcare in half a century, people are having trouble finding doctors at all, getting faulty information on which ones are covered and receiving little help from insurers swamped by new business.”
ST. PAUL, Minn.—Over the past two decades, there has been a tireless force in the crusade to preserve patient-centered health care and protect patients’ rights. The organization is the Minnesota-based Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, co-founded in 1994 by Twila Brase.
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:
ST. PAUL, Minn.—Twila Brase, president and co-founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, is calling on the American public to stand up against CVS Caremark for pushing an unpopular and destructive health care plan that is bad for the country.
The health care reform debate is littered with false statements. Truth is hard to come by. However, several recent news stories counter a whole series of mistruths and half-truths. Here are just three falsehoods -- there are many more, including one countered in our news release below -- and the new facts and findings that counter the false claims:
Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom is drawing attention to the significant safety and privacy concerns of the mandate within Obamacare that requires doctors and hospitals to have federally-certified electronic health records or face financial penalties in 2015.
Next year, Obamacare goes viral. And not in a good way. Full-force Obamacare will infect your life like no law in the past, present, or likely the future. You'll feel the ill effects on your employment, your income, your insurance, your doctor, your health, your family, your choices and your medical and personal privacy.
Will “the covered” receive care? Our health care coverage certificates may soon look and feel like the American dollar: a piece of paper backed by nothing. Just like there is no gold backing the U.S. dollar, so there may be no care backing the “coverage guaranteed” certificate you receive under Obamacare’s universal coverage program.
Do conservative organizations all sing the same health care tune? No, writes John Goodman at the National Center for Policy Analysis. In fact, I'd argue that sometime they are singing in complete dissonance.
