Good Morning my dear human family. It’s me, Manny, and I am bugged, bothered and bewildered by this monstrosity known as Obamacare. The (ha-ha) Affordable Care Act calls for the establishment of a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute.
Its purpose is to compare clinical effectiveness of two or more treatments. The outcomes will help your government decide which treatments are best in terms of outcome and cost. Are you scared yet? Well, trust me, you should be.
Obamacare allows the Health Secretary to limit “alternative treatments” of the elderly, disabled or terminally ill if the treatments are not supported by the research institute. Can anyone say Death Panels? Your government is going to decide important life and death issues. Forget our wishes, the wishes of your family and the advice of your personal physician. If you expected that your medical care was going to be determined by doctors seeking the best outcomes for you, FORGET IT!
This wonderful health coverage that nobody understands is pushing doctors out of private practice in droves. A 2012 survey of doctors conducted by the Doctor Patient Medical Association reported that 83 percent of respondents were thinking about leaving medicine. Almost two-thirds of the respondents placed your government at the root of the problem.
Allowing the IRS to enforce Obamacare is a rather inane decision. Imagine the chaos they will cause. The IRS shouldn’t be involved in healthcare. Taking it a step further, the IRS shouldn’t be involved in anything at this moment in time.
Medical decisions will be about cost and not about you. Your government is taking over your healthcare. This is the same government that paid over 1,500 dead people Social Security Benefits amounting to 31 million dollars. Some of the payments went on for 20 years.
My advice to all of you is to cook up a batch of chicken soup, find a witch doctor and hope for the best, always preparing for the worst.
Let Us Pray…Manny
