Baucus warns of 'huge train wreck' enacting ObamaCare provisions


LINK

quote:

Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) said Wednesday he fears a "train wreck" as the Obama administration implements its signature healthcare law.

Baucus, the chairman of the chamber's powerful Finance Committee and a key architect of the healthcare reform law, said he fears people do not understand how the law will work.

"I just see a huge train wreck coming down," he told Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at a Wednesday hearing. "You and I have discussed this many times, and I don't see any results yet."

Baucus pressed Sebelius for details about how the Health Department will explain the law and raise awareness of its provisions, which are supposed to take effect in just a matter of months.

"I'm very concerned that not enough is being done so far — very concerned," Baucus said.


quote:

"Small businesses have no idea what to do, what to expect," Baucus said.

Citing anecdotal evidence from small businesses in his home state, Baucus asked Sebelius for specifics about how it is measuring public understanding of the law.

"You need data. Do you have any data? You've never given me data. You only give me concepts, frankly," he said.
Sebelius said in response that the administration is not independently monitoring public awareness of specific provisions but will be embarking on an education campaign beginning this summer.


quote:

Enrollment in the healthcare law's insurance exchanges is slated to begin in October, for coverage that begins in January. Baucus, though, said he's worried exchanges won't be ready in time.

"For the marketplaces to work, people need to know about them," he said. "People need to know their options and how to enroll."

"People need first to enroll, and then they'll be told"

Our government is out of control. I think our only hope is for people to join together and stop paying taxes.

It did have to be passed to see what was in it. It's only fitting it will be a disaster.

Like they didn't know this. This piece of crap was INTENTIONALLY designed to fail so the serfs, lemmings would scream for a gobermint run health care system.

quote:

"You need data. Do you have any data? You've never given me data. You only give me concepts, frankly," he said.


These lying fools are putting on a pony show. They knew full well that this thing would NOT work.
Insurance companies are going to collapse under the weight of this thing when 100s of thousands if not MILLIONS of old, morbidly sick people flood the health-care system. Death panels, here they come.

Oh yeah, I know. We need a 'single-payer' ie gobermint run healthcare system.

So tell this then, how is Social security and Medicare & Medicaid working out? These programs are driving our country towards an fiscal cliff.

You want to know how a gobermint run healthcare system is going to look like, look at the DMV with compassion of the IRS.

We were warned.

This from a high-ranking Democrat. We are doomed.

Why you foolish liberals couldn't just settle for catastrophic insurance for EVERYONE, and let people take responsibility for their own health - Oh, I know why - because you want to control how I live. Sorry, I forgot.

This from the comment section of article...

Just another indication of what Obamacare is about where liberals/ Dems are not about solutions but about power/control...

not from their mindset

requiring a $3-5k deductible is seen as horrible when discussing people making $15-20k/year

it would be labeled as inhumane to require they pay 20-33% of their salary before they got health care!!

This is why I am not even looking at any 2014 polls yet. Once this monstrosity hits the public then I will begin to look at the polls.

Correct... like most issues with liberals its not about solutions.

The cost would be miniscule if the govt subsidized the plan for "those" people compared to Obamacare...

Book it...there will be waivers, etc., to push the effects back for another year...for the '14 election. That's their last chance. If this stuff comes crashing down, and people start dying while standing in lines...the whole Progressive machine comes UNGLUED.

And they'll be lucky if people don't demand REAL PUNISHMENT for this seditious crap!

The problem is Odrama and company are delaying some parts of this steaming POS until after the election in an attempt to protect Dims.
