A recent Pew study concluded that 60% of Americans believe that the government should be responsible for providing healthcare coverage. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/10/03/most-continue-to-say-ensuring-health-care-coverage-is-governments-responsibility/ The first thing that people need to ask is was the methodology used to perform the study a valid way to extrapolate what over 300 million people really want? And second, can accurate conclusions
The admission that Obamacare costs are projected to rise should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed the promises made to promote its passage when compared to what has happened since its implementation. It has become obvious that Obamacare is not about healthcare, it is about control. Promise: Healthcare for all via universal
The latest insurance company to pull out of the Obamacare exchanges because of financial losses shines a light on the slippery foundation upon which it was set up. In the haste to be all things to all people in order to sell it, little thought was given to how it would actually work – the
Despite the feel good rhetoric about the success of the Affordable Care Act that is being peddled during this election season, reality has hit home for many Americans. Patients have come to know that: 1. The subsidies don’t cover the high out of pocket costs from deductibles and co-insurance. The high costs have failed to
When patients understand that there is now a two tiered system of medicine. One driven by centralized, population based medicine underpinned by evidence based decisions that rest on the cost controlled good of the many vs individualized patient care based on the art and the science of medicine underpinned by health and wellness, they will choose us. That will be the beginning of the end of Obamacare. If we build it and let the patients know, they will come.
The King vs. Burwell decision has answered the question of who stands to gain in the age of Obamacare. Justice Roberts in his opinion said it best “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them.” With this decision medical insurance companies, hospitals and other pieces of the corporate healthcare delivery system now have the scale clearly tipped in their favor at the expense of doctors the patients – the mission has been accomplished.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act are getting exactly what they wanted. They have declared victory because of the decrease in health care costs. What they fail to mention is the reason there has been a decrease is because people can't afford to use their insurance due to high out of pocket costs.
The disastrous roll-out has certainly fed the argument of single payer and there is an argument to be made that the government bailout written into the bill has actually already ushered in single payer - since whoever controls the money controls the access and makes the rules.
It is no longer about the content of one's character. It is all about winning at all costs. How else can the blind and dogged devotion of Progressives to Obamacare be explained. The architects have admitted that the law is inherently unfair. It creates a two tiered system that benefits the wealthy and privileged friends and relegates the poor, the middle class and the disenfranchised to an inferior healthcare system devoid of quality doctors in which the 'unlucky' ones who can't afford it will be locked out of medical centers of excellence like Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and MD Anderson, stuck paying higher costs for medication, and paying more as if it is a privilege.
