OBAMACARE RATIONS.




You can thank Obamacare for the 15 member Death Panels deciding who gets what treatment and if you're too old or not a big enough Contributor to "Deserve" their nod for lifesaving care.

Obamcare Increases Your Costs.



This problem haunts the fraud Obama and the rotten Jackass Party. Obamacare was imposed to get idiots dependent on gov Health Care, NOT Lowering cost.

It's Pathetic and why most Americans have seen through the jackasses smokescreen to say it's time to Repeal & Replace this Abomination.

Obamacare forbids importing cheaper foreign drugs.



Emails reveal Obama adminstration deal on drug reimportation

Posted on June 12th, 2012
in Louisiana News

WASHINGTON — Newly released emails from the 2009-2010 health-care debate reveal how the White House won pharmaceutical industry support by agreeing to help scuttle proposals to expand reimportation of less expensive foreign drugs.


The emails, released by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, show the great lengths the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America went to kill drug reimportation as a potential hit on drug industry profits.

The bottom line is there was clearly a deal between the White House and PhRMA and first and biggest was a demand to kill reimportation for good.

During the health-care debate, PhRMA was headed by former Rep. Billy Tauzin, R-Chackbay, who was the lead industry negotiator with the White House over health reform.

More than100 pages of emails and memos, many from officials at PhRMA, show that the drug lobbying association provided money to run ads, including $70 million for two non-profit third parties, Americans for Stable Quality Care and Healthy Economic Now.

In one email, PhRMA lobbyist Bryant Hall wrote that “Rahm (then White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel) asked for Harry and Louise ads thru third party. We’ve already contacted the agent.”

FLASHBACK: The Health bill says 'tax' when President Obama said 'not'

Obama LIED!

By CHRIS FRATES & MIKE ALLEN
9/21/09

In the most contentious exchange of President Barack Obama’s marathon of five Sunday shows, he said it is “not true” that a requirement for individuals to get health insurance under a key reform plan now being debated amounts to a tax increase.

But he could look it up — in the bill.

Page 29, sentence one of the bill introduced by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont) says:“The consequence for not maintaining insurance would be an excise tax.” And the rest of the bill is clear that the Finance Committee does, in fact, consider it a tax:“The excise tax would be assessed through the tax code and applied as an additional amount of Federal tax owed.”

The bill requires every American, with few exceptions, to carry health insurance. To enforce this individual mandate, the Senate Finance Committee created the excise tax as a penalty for people who don’t have insurance – and it can run as much as $3,800 a year per family.

The House bill also refers to the penalties for not carrying insurance as a tax. It calls for a “tax on individuals without acceptable health care coverage” and amends the tax code to implement it.

75% of Obamacare Costs Will Fall on Backs of Those Making Less Than $120K a Year


Take Your Medicine, America…
Stephen Moore, Senior Economics Writer with the Wall Street Journal, told FOX and Friends this morning that nearly 75% of Obamacare costs will fall on the backs of those Americans making less than $120,000 a year.

“It’s a big punch in the stomach to middle class families.”


Oh! and Obama is EXEMPT!

Obama LIED about Health Care being DEFICIT NEUTRAL!

Political Punch
Power, pop, and probings from ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper

JAKE TAPPER: The president yesterday, last night, said that the bills -- the healthcare reform bills, whatever he signs, will be deficit-neutral and will bend the cost curve.

The Democratic bills that have been introduced in the House and Senate so far, at least according to the Congressional Budget Office, will - NOT - do that.

They will INCREASE THE DEFICIT, according to Doug Elmendorf, and they will - NOT - bend the cost curve.

In fact, the cost curve will continue to go up.

Does the White House accept what the CBO director says about these bills? And if so, what pressure is the White House conveying or using on Congress and Democrats to improve these two elements that the president said were so important?


Obamacare will cost $1.76 TRILLION according to the latest CBO report.

Policyholders could pay more under Obama plan


By TOM MURPHY and LINDA A. JOHNSON (AP)–

If President Barack Obama gets what he wants in his health care plan — covering all Americans and barring insurers from denying coverage — some analysts say individuals could wind up paying higher premiums.

The Obama plan would impose new costs on insurance companies, which would probably then raise the prices customers pay for coverage. Employers also would likely pass on some of their higher costs to employees.

An individual in a typical plan might have to pay up to $780 more for the same coverage in the first year of Obama's plan, estimates Erik Gordon, a health care analyst and assistant professor at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business.

Gordon said employees now typically pay 20 to 40 percent of the premium for a typical health care package costing about $13,000 a year for a family of four, with employers picking up the rest.

Obama's plan would raise insurers' costs 10 to 15 percent if reform doesn't provide other savings, Gordon estimated. He thinks employers would stick employees with perhaps 40 percent of the higher premium, or $520 to $780 more — THANKS OBAMA!

FLASHBACK: Obama Lies In Joint Session Speech:

Obama Promise: "By the end of my 1st term, I will cut the deficit in half".

THAT'S A OBVIOUS LIE even you must admit.
==========
WASHINGTON, Sept. 9, 2009
Fact Check: Obama's Health Care Omissions

OBAMA: "I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits either now or in the future. Period."

THE FACTS: Though there's no final plan yet, the White House and congressional Democrats already have shown they're ready to skirt the no-new-deficits pledge.

House Democrats offered a bill that the Congressional Budget Office said would add $220 billion to the deficit over 10 years. But Democrats and Obama administration officials claimed the bill actually was deficit-neutral. They said they simply didn't have to count $245 billion of it...

...WHICH MAKES OBAMA A LIAR.

OBAMA: "Don't pay attention to those scary stories about how your benefits will be cut.... That will never happen on my watch. I will protect Medicare."

THE FACTS: Obama and congressional Democrats want to pay for their health care plans in part by reducing Medicare payments to providers by more than $500 billion over 10 years. The cuts would largely hit hospitals and Medicare Advantage, the part of the Medicare program operated through private insurance companies.

Although wasteful spending in Medicare is widely acknowledged, many experts believe some seniors almost certainly would see reduced benefits from the cuts. That's particularly true for the 25 percent of Medicare users covered through Medicare Advantage.

...WHICH MAKES OBAMA A LIAR.

OBAMA: Requiring insurance companies to cover preventive care like mammograms and colonoscopies "makes sense, it saves money, and it saves lives."

THE FACTS: Studies have shown that much preventive care - particularly tests like the ones Obama mentions - actually costs money instead of saving it. That's because detecting acute diseases like breast cancer in their early stages involves testing many people who would never end up developing the disease. The costs of a large number of tests, even if they're relatively cheap, will outweigh the costs of caring for the minority of people who would have ended up getting sick without the testing.

The Congressional Budget Office wrote in August: "The evidence suggests that for most preventive services, expanded utilization leads to higher, not lower, medical spending overall."

...WHICH MAKES OBAMA A LIAR.

OBAMA: "If you lose your job or change your job, you will be able to get coverage. If you strike out on your own and start a small business, you will be able to get coverage."

THE FACTS: It's not just a matter of being able to get coverage. Most people would have to (BY FORCE) get coverage under the law, if his plan is adopted.

In his speech, Obama endorsed mandatory coverage for individuals, an approach he did not embrace as a candidate.

...WHICH MAKES OBAMA A TYRANNICAL LIAR.

President Obama's healthcare law was validated by the supreme court and anybody disparaging it now just looks like bitter losers spewing sour grapes because they didn't get their way. I am happy President Obama got another victory. All the right can do now is cry about it... and those tears are flowing,WOW; LOL.

Attention Democrats/Obama Supporters aka Communists, YOUR mistake is in the belief that you can have something you did not earn; that you are entitled to that which you did not earn; that you willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research, study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered into a trap from which you cannot flee. A freedom that is given not earned can also be taken away; therefore, it is not freedom."
