I’m so excited. I can hardly wait. It’s like Christmas in October, for Obamacare will be kicking in for real in about 2 to 3 weeks.
For those of us that understand this law better than most, we are worried, to put it mildly. I say “understand it better” because no one, including its author (s), whoever they are, know everything about it. Scary isn’t it; passing a law that controls one sixth of the economy and is still a mystery to all.
Yet the low to no information crowd is being hit with a full-court press of Obamacare positives. To my point, MSN Money posted an article highlighting 10 great things about Obamacare. I couldn’t resist but to click on it and find out just how they claim it will solve all our healthcare concerns.
Shall we examine a few?
The article began with a bang as Sara Collins, VP for affordable health insurance of the Commonwealth fund exclaimed: “the market reforms really level the playing field. You can no longer be excluded based on your health, for instance, if you have diabetes or asthma. That will really benefit those who are older.”
Ah yes, leveling the playing field. The mantra of the socialist set. And they didn’t forget to include the benefits to the low information old folks, although they did neglect to mention the death panels.
Another positive point was that restaurants with over 20 locations must post calorie and nutrition information. This is apparently great news and will coax many to make healthier choices. They continued by explaining that of low income people eating at fast food joints, more than 25% were influenced by the information, yet they still consumed the same amount of calories. Huh?
