Has it Been Six Months Since the Democrats Rammed Obamacare Down Our Throats?
By Lonely Conservative
My, how time flies! It's been six months since the Democrats rammed Obamacare down our throats, as part of their plan to make us all dependents on the federal government. And what has Obamacare done for to us?
Insurance companies are dropping child only health care policies.
Insurance companies are raising rates higher than they would have if not for Obamacare.
If the law stands, eventually private insurance companies will go out of business, leaving us with a single payer system much like what they have in Great Britain. (One insurance company has already gone under.)
When you sell your home you'll be charged an extra tax to cover the costs of Obamacare.
Businesses large and small will be hit with an onerus new 1099 reporting requirement.
The Secretary of Health and Human Services is threatening insurers who speak freely about Obamacare. She also wants to re-educate the rest of us about Obamacare.
Obamacare will increase the cost of health insurance, not decrease it as promised.
The government is now in the business of tracking our body weight, and encouraging pediatricians to drug our children.
Restaurants and vending machine operators are now forced to pay the cost of posting calorie counts on their menu items. (You know, because we're all to stupid to figure out that a huge sandwich and large order of fries might be fattening.)
Colleges and universities might have to dump student health plans.
Some insurers have already stopped issuing policies to business associations multiple businesses that team up to purchase insurance at group rates.
Some drugs are already being denied to cancer patients. The administration has admitted that health care will be rationed.
The federal government will be grossly expanded thanks to all the new regulations and taxes. Just look at how many new employees the IRS will need to hire, and that's just one agency!
The much touted high risk pool may start turning sick people away. (I thought we needed health care reform to keep that from happening.)
Young health Americans will see their premiums skyrocket, and more employers will drop health insurance plans.
Federal dollars are being used to fund abortions.
Most of us will probably lose our health insurance plans, even if we like them.
Small businesses will be discouraged from hiring at a time when we need small businesses to hire!
Many surgeons are threatening to quit thanks to Obamacare. If you think there's a doctor shortage now, just wait.
In time Americans will no longer be able to deduct health care costs.
If you decide not to purchase health insurance, the IRS can keep your tax refund.
Medical device makers are cutting back on production due to the new taxes on their products.
The federal government can take deductions from your paycheck to pay for long term care.
We were told there was no public option, but there is!
We the taxpayers got to foot the bill for a $700,000 Andy Griffith ad trying to sell us this crap sandwich.
All of the above, and a blatant abuse of power to pass it, and only 2 people in New Jersey signed up for the new coverage. Oh, and it's going to cost a heck of a lot more than we were told.
But it's not all bad, if you're a pedophile your Viagara will be covered.
Did I miss anything?
