The Healthcare Law, Isn’t What You Thought It Was, and Other Thoughts.
So here it is, another Saturday. The sun is out the morning temps are in the low 80s already and the humidity matches those numbers. So what am I doing? Setting here on the computer. It’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over and Hockey will be here in no time at all.
Yes another season will go by and I will not be able to go to the games because I am an adult and have responsibilities. One of those responsibilities, healthcare. Oh yea, another big one that is right up there, eating. However, there will be a lot of people wondering where their next meal will be coming from, or will we be able to get Timmy his medicine. It seems that those of you who thought the supreme leader was giving you free healthcare will have that rude awakening real soon.
It is showing that the so called providers, (The insurance companies) had their hands all over this law. That special Preexisting Condition Clause that people were so happy about, well it has a clause of its own. It will not take full effect in 2014, and yes, it’s true that you can’t be turned down for a condition you already had. However, it will come at a very expensive price. (Just what the poor and working poor need.)
Some will say that if you can’t afford it don’t buy it. Ok that is fair enough, except for one little detail. “IT IS MANDATORY!” The people have forgotten, this is Hillary’s plan on steroids. One of the things that cost Mrs. Clinton the Democratic nomination was, her healthcare plan. Obama pointed to the fact that Mrs. Clinton’s plan would make it mandatory for every American to buy coverage, or be fined or do jail time. (You member, don’t you?)
The democrats felt that one key issue that would see their Healthcare bill pass was that it covered Preexisting conditions. Obama push it every time he spoke on the subject. (He put the emphases on children with preexisting conditions being covered being covered.) Yea, that was right out of the Clinton playbook. “It’s for the children.”
“This year, tens of thousands of uninsured Americans with a preexisting condition and parents whose children have a preexisting condition will finally be able to purchase the coverage they need,” he said.
Publishers note: The AP article was pulled that explains, the overlook in making sure kids with pre-existing conditions were covered. The article was not very flattering.
Well, that is not true:
Under the new law, insurance companies still would be able to refuse new coverage to children because of a pre-existing medical problem, said Karen Lightfoot, spokeswoman for the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
However to be fair, they “promise” to get to it before it goes into full effect in 2014.
Just a Sidebar /b>
It seems that some ranches in Texas were taken over by the Mexican gang Los Zetas. This happened on July 24, 2010, but was not reported in the MSM until August 11, 2010. Wonder why?
There is all kinds of speculation on why the Main Stream Media would not report on the incident and they all point to Obama’s stance on controlling illegal immigration. On the other side, it is being called a hoax and propaganda by the Rightwing, and the Tea Party members.
The same thing happened when I wrote a blog on the finding of tanks, uniforms, riffles, and other equipment belonging to the Chinese military fond in that area on the Mexican side of the border back in 2004, . However, since the MSM has not reported on the sightings of Chinese and Cuban military on the US-Mexican border it must not be happening.
ps, By the way it was soon found to be true.
