Are Liberals Setting Up ‘Obamacare’ for Failure?

September 1, 2013

Well! The mask has finally come off! Many of us have long worried that the Affordable Health Act, commonly known as Obamacare, was just a stalking horse for the eventual implementation of a......

I have personally lobbied Congresspersons and Senators about Obamacare, as it is now called. Labors pushback concerns are focused on the Taft Hartley plans that cover 20 million American lives. Our plans are excluded from subsidies yet our health funds must pay the $63 per belly button tax for the next three years. This money is going to the insurance company's to offset their costs concerning preexisting conditions. That is plain wrong. Our Taft Hartley plans spend nearly 95% of every dollar to health care, insurance company's had to have a law to force them to use at least 80% of their money on health care. What a rip off! The push down on hours to avoid health care won't matter if we can get the subsidies. We won't go into the exchanges at all since we cover workers much faster and cheaper than private insurance company's. the goal is single payer. That is what scares conservatives. Once we get single payer, all Americans will be covered and no one will want to give it up.

WVU Whoopie: how do we pay for it and who says they " are going to love it." You libs never ever think of the unintended consequences until it's too late. Where are we going to get all the doctors to service it? And who says the doctors we have now are going to just jump in line and do what they are told. Once again we have people who know absolutely nothing about something telling us they are going to run something. And if you are thrilled with the IRS being in charge of your medical record, you are beyond naive. Just hope those always in power are on the side YOU like because its been proven that they aren't always fair to the side opposing their views.

Once relevant unions have become little more than political leeches! They will whine and threaten to withhold their extensive political donations if their not subsidized by our taxpayer dollars! From TPM , "These so-called Taft-Hartley plans function for many purposes like regular employer-sponsored insurance, and are treated as such in the tax code: employer contributions to premiums are tax deductible, and employee contributions are pre-tax. Nevertheless, unions are beseeching Democrats to reinterpret or change the law so that these particular beneficiaries also benefit from new tax credits intended to subsidize individuals who will be purchasing their own insurance in the exchanges. A double subsidy."

Notice our resident union shill doesn't care that ACA has turned us into a part time nation. Give us our double dip at the expense of the American taxpayer!!!
