Obamacare: “Going To Blow a Hole In The Budget”

Posted by Larry Doyle on November 18, 2013 7:10 AM |

WALLACE: I’m not saying it’s a scandal. I’m just, what it seems to be is rank incompetence.

WOODWARD: Yeah, there’s no question about that . . .

That rank incompetence is being felt each and everyday by millions across our nation as people learn they are not only losing their healthcare plans, but their doctors as well.

Can you imagine your elderly grandmother losing access to her doctor with whom she has had a longstanding relationship? It is happening folks. Which party is throwing Grandma over the cliff? Evidence of just such a development is detailed in a weekend article from the WSJ:  

Depending on their plan, UnitedHealth Medicare members may be able to see terminated doctors if they pay an out-of-network fee or pay 100% of the cost themselves. They can also switch to a rival Advantage plan or to regular fee-for-service Medicare—if they do so by Dec. 7.

But many are reluctant to do either. Louise Pannulla, of Seymour, Conn., said both her ophthalmologist and her primary-care doctor were dropped, so she may switch to another plan. “I just hope that one doesn’t change, too,” she says. “At 90 years old, you don’t want to change anything.”

Think that might cause a bit of stress for 90-year old Ms. Pannulla and others in a similar situation? Moreover, the incompetence is also likely to be felt in terms of our budget. Let’s listen to Bob Woodward, hardly a conservative.

If the Republicans had some intelligence, they might want to come out with a well thought out plan that addresses the needs of the uninsured and those with pre-existing conditions, and get bipartisan support for it.

As the Obamacare train wreck continues to rack up more damage and inflict more unintended pain, the nation needs a real alternative.

Who is going to provide it?

    WHAT BUDGET ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ? THE SYSTEM IS TO PRINT MORE COUNTERFEIT MONEY, JUST LIKE THEY HAVE BEEN DONG FOR DECADES.

    IT IS ALL SO SILLY, BUT THE WORLD IS WAKING UP TO THE MEASURE OF CRIME AGAINST IT’S OWN PEOPLE. AND IT IS ALL ABOUT MONEY

    SOME TIME, IF YOU REALLY WANT TO RUIN YOUR DAY, LOOK AT A FACTUAL ACCOUNT, ( HISTORY ) , REGARDING WHAT OUR ESTEEMED LEADERS DID TO THE INDIANS. LOOK AT ALL THE WAR CRIMES THIS COUNTRY HAS PERPETRATED,AND STILL IS, LOOK AT THE CONTINUED AND PREVALENT PROPAGANDA TAUGHT IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS, LOOK AT THE DRIVEL CONSTANTLY BOMBARDING THE PEOPLE IN ALL MEDIA.

    LOOK AT THE CHILDISH ( IN THE FABRICATIONS POORLY DONE ) ORCHESTRATIONS OF FALSE FLAG ANTICS WE HAVE EXPERIENCED ON A GRAND SCALE. LOOK AT THE ACTUAL LIST OF HOW MANY OF THE WARS WE HAVE WON. FOR A LONG TIME NONE. BUT SOME MADE A LOT OF MONEY….LOST A LOT OF LIVES. ON ALL SIDES.

    ADD JUST A FEW OF THESE UP, AND WHAT DO YOU GET PROOF OF THE UTTER IGNORANCE OF THIS COUNTRY’S POPULACE. OTHERWISE, HOW WOULD THEY CONTINUE TO GET AWAY WITH IT. ??????

      Sounds like you hate the very place you live – I would suggest that only a crazy man would stay in a place that he dislikes so much – what are you doing to change it besides commenting on blogs? I understand your statements and might even be right on all accounts but bringing up the Indians is solely out of place. It’s like me being in a fight with my wife about my college girlfriend cheating on me. No one will hear you when you speak like this – and that is the goal correct?
