Obamacare Medicade: Like Discounted TITANIC Ticket
A few days ago, A blog was written about a survey that said 8 of every 10 doctors
in private practice were thinking of leaving those practices because of
Obamacare. In that survey, it reported that 49% of the doctors said
they were going to stop accepting Medicaid patients.
Another survey was conducted by GEB International Inc.
of female voters. Of the 800 women surveyed, Republicans made up 31%,
Democrats 45% and Independents 21%. With a greater number of women
identifying themselves as Democrats over Republicans, I was surprised by
some of the results of this survey which indicated that a significant
percentage of women voters wanted Obamacare repealed. What made this
surprising is that this included many of the women who identified
themselves as Democrats. A few of the survey results were:
“Healthcare remains a significant issue in the November
election. Fully 14 percent of the survey sample – one in seven voters –
said healthcare would be “the single most important issue when deciding
how you will vote for President in November;” responding to a separate
question, 36 percent said the Affordable Care Act will be either the
“most important issue” or “one of the most important issues” determining
their November vote. In fact, health care was one of only three issues
to break the 10-percent threshold, following “the economy” and “creating
A significant majority still wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act
either in whole or in part. When asked, “Thinking about the nation as a
whole, do you think we are better off with the Affordable Care Act in
place as it is, should we repeal parts of it, or should we repeal all of
it and start over again?” 38 percent wanted to keep the ACA as is, and
56 percent want to repeal all or parts of it. Only 28 percent of
Independents want to keep it as is; 63 percent want to see it repealed
in whole or in part.”
“Two key drivers for those wanting repeal are the belief that
requiring Americans to purchase a product they might otherwise choose to
forego is “un-American,” and the understanding that the ACA puts
bureaucrats between patients and their doctors. Fully 25 percent of
Independents and 25 percent of those who were undecided on the ballot
test listed the “un-American” nature of the Individual Mandate as their
top reason to oppose the ACA; 23 percent of those who were undecided on
the ballot and 20 percent of Independents listed putting bureaucrats
between patients and their doctors as their top reason to oppose the
The Christian Medical Association is reporting similar views on
Obamacare and Medicaid as were reported in the previous survey.
According to CMA’s CEO Dr. David Stevens:
“If it’s costing you money out of your own pocket, out of
your own practice every time you see a Medicaid patient, increasingly
doctors are going to drop out of it. That’s what happened in Texas.
It’s gone from 67 percent of doctors accepting Medicaid in the year 2000
to 31 percent this year. So that’s an enormous problem.”
“We missed what we should have been shooting for. What we did was
give discounted tickets on the Titanic to people as it heads towards the
ice flow of uncontrollable healthcare costs. We’ve got to address that
Dr. Stevens commented in response to Texas Governor Rick Perry’s
announcement that Texas will join Louisiana, Florida and Wisconsin in
opting not to implement the Medicaid expansion laid out in Obamacare.
On the national news yesterday morning, I saw an interview with
President Obama and he said that he has been spending more time traveling America and listening to the people, their needs and
desires. Evidently he’s only listening to a minority of people who
worship him as some sort of social savior because virtually every report
that has come out before and since the U.S. Supreme Court ruling to
keep Obamacare, the major of Americans want it repealed.
Obama’s still not listening to Americans. Doctors don’t like
Obamacare. Insurance companies don’t like Obamacare. The majority of
women voters don’t want Obamacare. The majority of Americans in general
don’t want Obamacare. He’s still doing what he wants to do regardless
of what the masses of peons say.
Maybe it’s time for Americans to
start peeing on Obamacare and send the foul message to the White House our disapproval to 'His Royal Arrogance' decision.
