You Were Warned

Barack Obama, when he was campaigning for his health care bill in 2009, claimed it would (a) improve our health care, (b) provide coverage for everyone, and (c) reduce the cost.

Even halfway intelligent people looked at such bluster and concluded that there was no way (a) + (b) could ever allow (c).

As predicted:
Obamacare Has 'Bent the Insurance Cost-Curve North, Not South,' Insurance Executive Tells House Panel
By Susan Jones, CNS News

CNSNews.com) - "There's no question that the (Affordable Care) Act has, to this date, bent the health insurance cost curve north, not south, and the forecast in that regard is growing darker," an insurance benefits executive told a House panel on Thursday.

That's because the law requires health plans to cover individuals, such as adult children, that they did not cover in the past; it bars health plans from putting lifetime and annual dollar limits on benefits; and it requires plans to provide preventive care services -- including contraceptives in a few months' time -- at no out-of-pocket cost to the enrollee, Edward Fensholt told the House Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions.

"These mandates have increased our clients' health plan costs 2 to 3 percent on average to this point," he said. And he said the costs will escalate further when new rules -- such as reductions in waiting periods and the automatic enrollment requirement -- take effect in 2014. [link]
What this means is, if the Supreme Court doesn't kill it, our health care system will, in a few short years, be out of control. Thanks to Barack Obama and that which will forevermore be known, infamously, as ObamaCare.

It didn't have to be like this. If most Americans hadn't bought into the lies.

But they did and here we are. On the verge of having the finest health care delivery system ever devised by humankind disintegrate.

Wise up, people. Or move to Greece, where they buy into such idiocy.
