A pproaching the Oct. 1 deadline to implement Obamacare, there are real signs that the President's 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has done exactly the opposite, made it more costly to pay for health insurance.

Of course Obama Care is not delivering affordability because it is a mandatory insurance bill and not a health care cost control bill.

The ACA is about mandatory INSURANCE. It's a who is going to pay for it bill and not a what for or how much is being paid bill. It does not address the COSTs issues.

The problem is the 50 dollar aspirin. Identify the costs and problem area before you decide how you will pay for it. Until we can get hospitals or practices to stop keeping 2 sets of books and falsifying bills by overcharging for things like aspirin to compensate for what they didn't get/wanted for the actual procedure, services or labor COST will be THE PROBLEM. Until you eliminate the production line medicine mentality COSTs will be the problem. Until fraud in Medicare/Medicaid is eliminated COSTs will be a problem. Until fraud in general is eliminated COSTs will be the problem. Until we eliminate the patient sniffles expectations or the doctors cya overtest mentality COSTs will be the problem.

It's the THE COSTs silly, NOT WHO is going to pay for it.
