Karl Rove is gay. Frequents gay bars. The Bush brain likes a Jolly Roger or two.
Rove is married and has a son, which makes him about as homosexual as Obama.

That rumor was debunked even before the Affordable Care Act became law. Nothing in the law changes how people are going to be treated. Today's " Utilization Management" is no different than your Obamacare "Death Panels". If you believe "utilization management" guidelines represent "death panels", then "death panels" existed under the Bushes and Reagan, too. Shame on them!
Example:
"Utilization management professionals have no financial
incentives to deny services. Our UM decision-making is based only on appropriateness of care and service and existence of coverage."
"Prospective review refers to the review that takes place prior to requested procedures/admissions. This is achieved through a precertification process for elective admissions, certain diagnostic procedures, and outpatient surgeries."
The majority of this activity is carried out by nurses and other utilization management professionals. They use clinical screening tools such as Interqual to apply consistent standards.
Questionable cases are reviewed by our medical directors and a panel of doctor advisors."
Preauthorization Review
"Utilization Management nurses review proposed surgeries and other health care services --inpatient and outpatient. We call this our preauthorization review. If the available clinical information does not support the medical appropriateness of the requested procedure or service, clinical indications and alternative treatments are discussed with the surgeon. One of our doctor advisors may also contact the physician to discuss the treatment plan. This process
has proven effective in eliminating unnecessary surgery and procedures, is less imposing on the patient, and avoids redundant examination costs."

This is from a managed care company, not a fee-for-service insurance company.

As for promoting responsibility &, reliance. That's a parent's job, not the president.
ObamaKKKare makes low-skill employees unaffordable. The only reason to hire permanent employees is if they possess skills critical to the business.

What are you complaining about? 2008 "saw the highest level of job losses in six decades...2.6 million jobs lost in that year alone and there was an increase of 1% in just the first month of Obama's presidency which was attributable to Bush's policies. Obama has turned things around. That is a FACT. Live with it.
Explain why the percentage of Americans in the workforce is in steady decline.....

Obama's mother abandoned him long before she developed cancer.

She just didn't want the black kid around.

Swapping COBRA For Obamacare Likely To Be Windfall For Big Business

Health-law provisions taking effect next year could save U.S. employers billions of dollars in expenses now paid for workers who continue medical coverage after they leave the company, benefits experts say.

Insurance marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act are expected to all but replace COBRA coverage in which ex-employees and dependents can remain on the company plan if they pay the premiums.

“As soon as the law was passed, the question among employers and benefits people was: Is there still going to be a reason for COBRA?” said Steve Wojcik, vice president of public policy for the National Business Group on Health, an employer group. Offered a choice between heavily subsidized coverage in the health act’s insurance exchanges or paying full price under COBRA, he said,“most people are going to choose the exchange.”

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, known as COBRA and intended to furnish coverage between jobs, is a burden for employers as well as participants.
