The All-Fault Obamacare

Right-Wing BS   :

As the right ramps up their battle against implementation of the Affordable Care Act, expect smoke and mirrors to play a huge part in the bullshit campaign to convince the mindless that every ill affecting their lives can be attributed to Obamacare.

Paul Waldman:

Beyond the just-asking format, there’s a preview here of something else we’ll be seeing as Obamacare gets implemented over the next couple of years. Every problem that anyone has with anything related to health care will be characterized as a consequence of Obamacare, which in some tortured sense might be almost true. The ad mentions not being able to choose your doctor, which would be bad. If you chose an insurance plan in an exchange established by Obamacare, that plan will probably have a network of doctors from which you have to choose if you want your care paid for, and if your doctor isn’t on it, then you’ve been prevented from choosing your own doctor.

Of course, that isn’t because of Obamacare, it’s because of the way insurance works in America; it’s how it worked before Obamacare, and it’s how it’ll work after Obamacare. But it’s a lot simpler to say, “Now that we’re under Obamacare, I didn’t get to choose my doctor!” And did you know that under Obamacare, medications could come with dangerous side effects? Or that under Obamacare, kids who get shots will cry? Not only that, under Obamacare, you could get cancer and dieā€”even if your doctor wanted to save you. In fact, under Obamacare, we’re all going to die one day.

And here we go with help from David and Charles Koch’s Americans For Prosperity.


Tongue in cheek, Waldman lends voice to the right’s angst over Obamacare, “Thanks for all the misery, pain, and death, Obama.

  1. Un hunh…Use something FRIGHTENING (and they ARE) and make the “victim” a child…and say nothing about the moms whose kids have seizures and they have no insurance to even BEGIN treatment.

    A local Doc here in WV wrote an op ed saying he’s being “FORCED TO RETIRE” because of the dreaded Obamacare…because he is MANDATED to go to electronic records…never mentioning that in O-Care, docs are allowed up to about $60k to undertake the process! That’s called an “incentive”, not a mandate. Thankfully, the paper allowed that he be called out.
    Another argument, about there not being enough docs to treat all the new “patients”…O-Care is subsidizing med students and offering “bonuses” to those willing to practice in under-served areas.

    Oh, how I wish people would just go to…don’t bother asking your R Rep as they “decided” they just don’t want to be part of educating their constituency…like petulant adolescents…and to think it’s THEIR OWN HERITAGE FOUNDATION BILL…

    I also love that the R’s have threatened pro sports to NOT do their civic duty and educate their viewers and fans…

    and in the end, after all the belligerence and lies, we will come to appreciate, even love O-Care…amended as necessary. Welcome to health care, America.

  2. Damn, I’m mad. I was gonna live forever, then they voted a black guy into White House. What were they thinking??
