I was talking to my doctor about it last week and he said that passing Obama Care will put many doctors out of business and ultimately destroy the health care system. But yes, I do agree with you that they want money... most people in business do! lol

I think the biggest fear within the healthcare industry is that the insurance companies are going to lower reimbursement to providers in order to keep their profit margins high. The individual mandate is supposed to offset increased expenses in the insurance industry by getting more people to pay into the system. What the government needs to do is squeeze the insurance companies instead of the healthcare providers.

We are already seeing this play out with the privatization of Medicaid in Texas. Insurance companies were awarded the Medicaid contract, and proceeded to lower reimbursement to providers (and keeping the rest of the money in their pockets). Bottom line: insurance companies are unnecessary middle men that are getting rich off government contracts.

The people who are going to get squeezed the most will be the middle class as usual. Poor will need to be subsidized to buy insurance which equals more taxes. Businesses will layoff people to avoid paying health insurance or just pay the penalty which is cheaper. This will lead to more unemployment, which means more poor which means more subsidy which means more taxes.

The bill does have some positives but that is why I don't understand why they rushed the whole thing forward. I hoped it would have been turned down and done little by little. The republicans did have some good ideas like capping lawsuits and streamlining the FDA and expanding health savings accounts.

Unfortunately I don't see any good coming from this.

I support Obama CAre and I'm glad the law of the land supports it too. Doctors are mad bcus it's all about the money for them, they don't treat patients bcus they are genuinely nice and want to make the world a better place by making a difference in people's lives, maybe at one point it use to be with that mentality but now the doctors are only seeing dollar signs when they see sick patients.

I love the fact that insurance companies can no longer turn down children and adults with pre-existing medical conditions.

Without obamacare the doctors would have a right to refuse to see you and treat you. Romney can't reform a new bill since it takes months or even the whole one term year just to get it across to congress. Obama care helps many who don't have insurance and that's where doctors hate it. They want free rein and charge whatever to Medicare or simply refuse treatment. Many elderly will die and suffer if Romney was to win. He wants the elder to die faster because he feels they're taking up space. Why do they want the elder to work until they die. Romney wants to raise the retirement age to 70. By then 3/4 of elderly people would die. That's his take on social security. Work the elder to death and they won't have time to claim social security. Romney is really after money for the rich and wealthy. 1/3 of the USA is rich or wealthy. The rest are either middle class or plain poor. He wants to make sure that the rich and wealthy not pay taxes while the poor and middle class pick up the tax hikes. Obama is going to win because Romney wants to take the USA on a one way road to making it a Communist country.

Talk about the being uninformed FUNFACT. Do you honestly think that going to College, medical school,Internship,Residency, Fellowship, are all positive items. Let see, College 4 years (50-100K min)
Medical school 4 years (250K) Internship 1 year (-25K) Residency 3-5 years (-40K). So there we have it 12-15 years of study so morons like you can get good care and complain about the fact that doctors want to make money...Why, because they have to live, pay back loans, support a wife and kids, save for the future. All because they want to make money? It would be better to go to work for an electric company right out of high school and spend 12-15 years making money, have a nice retirement fund. I tired to advise my son not to become a physician because of this coming mess...but he wanted to help people, so he did it. Yes, because(correct spelling) he is doing it out of kindness!

Romney is definitely not the best candidate, but Obama is the one putting his socialist agenda into act Obama care is horrible, not just for the rich, or the people that have money but for everybody. Why is it our responsibility to take care of evrybody? This nation was not built with that mentality. This nation was built on the idea that if you work hard you can make a living and future for yourself. Obamacare is taking that mentality away from our nation. What's next...having to build homes for the homeless, oh that's another tax, or having to provide people who do not have transportation with brand new cars in order for them not to have an excuse to not work, sounds like a good idea, but thats another tax. All of these possibilities are taking away our nation's sense of independence. "If you're willing to give your freedom for security, then you never deserved freedom in the first place."
