Show-Me Obamacare Last Chance Dance?!?!

A reminder that the deadline for Missouri po'folk is approaching and Trumpcare hasn't provided an effective solution whilst growing outcry for single-payer is the new hotness. Read more:

Missouri health insurance enrollment drops as deadline looms

Americans have until Saturday to sign up for coverage on the federal, online insurance marketplace. The Affordable Care Act set up healthcare.gov to help people find affordable health care and access income-based subsidies to help pay for it. But the federal government is cutting funding for outreach and the enrollment period has been cut in half.

Fuck Obama Care

Lets get this straight, only a tiny contingent of socialist Democrats are calling for single payer. Many people are upset with the system of healthcare in the US, but to say they want single payer is just spin.
Our system had major flaws but Obamacare truly broke it.

The only way to fix it is to introduce some capitalism.
The most efficient dollar is one that you earned that you spend on yourself. The next is one given to you spent on yourself, the next is one given to you to spend on someone else, the last is one given by you for a third party to spend on yet another third party. The last case represents most healthcare dollars spent in the US, and a single payer system it would be ALL that case.

That is why Healthcare plans with high deductibles and generous rules on taxation for Health Savings Accounts (HSA) is the way to go. If government really wanted to subsidize the system, they could provide access to low interest rate loans (and forgive some of them) to pay for some services.

And why would this work? Because if most of the routine payments were made with HSAs (money you earn yourself) and is spent on you (or your family) it would drive costs down. People would price check their bills and shop for healthcare, because it is their money. They wouldn't show up to the Emergency Room for the flu. They would go to a clinic because it is cheaper.
Single payer is just the way to runaway costs and little oversight. There is already a shortage of doctors. The UK deals with this by importing them from India. Is that what we want here?

You didn't keep your doctor and your costs went WAY up.

The only way it worked for you, was if you were not working.

Read the article. If Progressives lips are moving, they are lying.

A few points. 1. Notice how lying to the American people is completely justified by Obama administration standards so long as the ends justify the means. Gruber would "rather have this law than not," and therefore purposely lying about what the law actually is in order to get it passed is completely acceptable. regardless of the negative effects it has on the lives of Americans. 2. Lack of transparency might be a huge political advantage in the short term, but long term there are consequences from voters, which is exactly what we saw last week during the Democrat blood bath at every level of government across the country. 3. Insulting Americans as stupid and deceiving them is a really good way to lose your power on Capitol Hill, which is again exactly what we saw last week in the 2014 midterms. Twenty-eight Senators who voted for Obamacare are now out of the Senate for one reason or another. 4. Obamacare in its entirely was "sold" on lies. From the promise to keep your doctor to claims insurance rates would go down, not up -- to hiding that the legislation was in fact a tax until of course it was necessary to argue it was a tax to save the legislation at the Supreme Court. Government bureaucrats promising an expansion of care knowing care under Obamacare would be limited, etc. Hell, even the official name for Obamacare, "The Affordable Care Act," is a lie.

Typical pubic radio nonsense: Obamacare is flopping but it's not because Obamacare is a crappy program, it's due to a propaganda shortfall. Maybe it's still Bush's fault.

Obamacare is a sham and the American people have been lied to and deceived every step of the way. Further, Obamacare has never been popular with the American people. Not when it passed and not now. It should also be noted that since before Obamacare was passed conservatives have been rightly screaming about its true contents and impact on American families and the economy. They've been right all along and were called racists for sounding the alarm.

Overall, a lack of transparency has been key to the Obama administration's existence on a whole range of topics, which is why it was one of the least transparent administrations in history despite President Obama's promises.

Obama is a black liar and his administration was the most scandal plagued, criminally inclined deceptive and destructive administration in recent history. He could possibly be, the worst president this country has ever seen.

Just for grins and giggles I did some checking here. I signed up to see what my costs would be. The answer I got back was the premium cost per month would be $1,240 and that was listing a yearly income of 25K.

That's over 3 times of what it would cost making less money per year working at McDonalds and using the local stores insurance option they offer with zero employer contribution.

It's a scam and only an idiot would sign up for it.
