Why The Obama Health Care Act Does Not Really Serve You.

I happened to be on Yahoo news earlier today and saw a news title that was very interesting to me called:  Insurers nervous over prospect of a Romney victory.  That should tell you a lot right?  From this title, it’s obvious that the insurance companies stand to make billions of dollars on forcing everyone into buying insurance that they don’t need because they take care of themselves in other ways that like outside of the “FDA” approved methods of health care.

While Insurance companies are required to take on everyone, they can still limit how much they are willing to pay out.  Now we can’t allow free market systems to work in regards to the health insurance companies.  If we don’t like their solutions, we can’t vote with our wallet and find another solution.  We are beholding to them whether we like their solutions or not.

The ultimate problem is that you can’t make the health industry a for profit business.  Their ultimate goal in the consciousness they are in is to spend as little as possible to create the greatest profits as possible.  They see spending as little as possible as finding reasons to not pay their claims, instead of promoting preventative lifestyles and procedures (anything that reduces stress), as the ultimate way to save money because the population will be more healthy and require less chronic and crisis health care.

At any rate, the fact that they are worried about Romney getting into office means that they could lose their billions of dollars of income through forced purchase of health care insurance.  As you can see, the health care providers played a larger Role than they should have in the Health Care Act.  Obama didn’t have the internal strength to keep to what is best for the people.  Let’s hope that Romney does.  Also, it is our duty as american citizens to hold our government accountable.  Voting Romney into office is that first step.

More Info on the “Affordable Health Care Bill”….

From an email I received….  This affects individuals and small businesses and not in a good way….

 

 There are thousands of real people impacted by this policy. One in particular is restaurant owner Ben Pumo from Land O’ Lakes, Fl. who I’m familiar with. Pumo’s of Benedetto’s Ristorante Italiano states to the Orlando Sentential how policies like Obamacare would impact his business and employees he had come to see as family.

   Obamacare would impose new costs on his business, it would be a blow to his freedom to hire workers as he pleased without triggering new taxes, and he feared the worst was yet to come as Obamacare had empowered Washington bureaucrats to write new and unpredictable regulations.

   With the recent decision on Obamacare, we were reminded of why this news matters far beyond the Supreme Court’s steps. It matters in kitchens like the one in Ben Pumo’s restaurant and for individuals and business owners across the country.

    Obamacare is not the president’s signature achievement. It’s the signature example of the leadership failures and broken promises that have defined Obama‘s presidency.

    When the president assumed office, he faced the worst economy in generations. After throwing an $800 billion stimulus at the problem, he proposed a health-care overhaul with a mandate to force people to buy health insurance. Or else.

    He assured the American people that the individual mandate wasn’t a tax. But when Obamacare was challenged in court for violating the Constitution, he changed his tune, arguing that it was permissible under Congress’ taxing power. The court agreed and upheld Obamacare.

    The bait and switch proved to be a brilliant legal strategy, but a disastrous economic policy. For millions of Americans, including job creators, Obama’s political win is now an IRS problem for them in the real world.

    Obamacare is bad policy that adds around $800 billion of taxes on the American people. It does not discriminate between rich and poor. It hurts everyone.

    It is a job-killer that will drive up insurance premiums and jeopardize the ability of millions of Americans to keep the insurance coverage of their choice. For individuals not complying with Obamacare, it means the IRS will come calling if they fail to pay the Obamacare tax.

    For job creators — and unemployed workers relying on them to work again — Obamacare is a new regulatory maze to figure out. For instance, once a business reaches 50 full-time employees, the Obamacare tax will kick in to the tune of $2,000 for each full-time employee in excess of 30 full-time employees unless the business meets a mandate to provide health coverage for them. There are no penalties if part-time employees are not offered coverage.

    Thus, rather than freely being able to hire employees without fear of an IRS problem, employers will be encouraged to circumvent the Obamacare tax by hiring people on a part-time basis so they don’t count for this tax. Or maybe an entrepreneur has 49 employees and could use several more to help meet increased demand. Obamacare creates a perverse incentive to hold back and just make existing employees work more so the 50-employee threshold tax isn’t triggered.

    These concerns are less pressing for larger enterprises, which have effectively made the case that this law is so bad for business that they need relief from it. With a straight face, the administration has actually agreed, as it has handed out 1,231 waivers. Once again we see how, while big businesses don’t like big government, they have the means to live with it in a way that small businesses can’t.

    I hoped the Supreme Court would see the fatal constitutional flaws of this policy and strike it down. It did not, but its ruling did note one very important fact: The future of the program is “entrusted to our nation’s elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them.”

    The ultimate fate of Obamacare is thus not in the hands of politicians, the courts, or this president. The voters will decide the final outcome of this fight on Nov. 6.

    President Obama will keep Obamacare. Gov. Romney will repeal it and replace it with market-based reforms that empower individuals to get health insurance without having the IRS chasing them down if they don’t. Never has a choice been more clear. Never have the differences in two candidates been so stark….

Pres. Obama’s Health Care Law

I was never a fan of the health care bill that passed recently.  I don’t like the fact that I am forced into a “government approved” health care option.  There are many forms of health care that are not embraced by insurance carriers.  If there isn’t an insurance carrier that accepts my form of health care, then I shouldn’t be forced to patronize them.  I would be wasting my money.  Health insurance companies aren’t in the business of keeping people healthy, they are in the business of making money.  So what does that mean?  The more money they take in and the less they pay out, the more they make.

So what does all of this mean?  Well, they aren’t inclined to make payouts for prevention.  It has been proven by medical doctors that stress is a major cause of disease.  So to prevent disease and ill health, you would prevent stress.  Look at your health insurance policy, and see how many stress prevention treatments they include…. They probably only include things like massage, reiki or chiropractic care in response to accidents, or in addition to physical therapy treatments.  Bottom line, is that money I could be using to put towards prevention, gets wasted on a policy that will not truly serve me and my style of life.

So what about what they say with the supreme court and legality of the health care law?  Well from the talk around the court and early oral arguments, things may not bode well for the newly passed bill.  Arguments should come out in late June.  I’ll be watching.  I’m not too happy about one more freedom being removed, and the opening of the door for an introduced real estate tax implemented to pay for it!
