Dems Begin to Freak Over Obamacare Chaos


LINK

quote:

Democrats complained this week about a one-year delay in a key program designed to help small businesses — a central selling point for the healthcare law that now won’t be in place when voters head to the polls next year.

“Senate Republicans will have the opportunity to campaign against Obamacare's rising health care costs, burdensome paperwork and broken promises and could use it to motivate voters against Democrat candidates, especially vulnerable ones in red states,” Republican strategist Ron Bonjean said.

HHS has delayed by one year a provision that would have allowed small businesses in most states to choose from multiple policies for their workers. Although a handful of states will see increased competition next year, most will have just one plan to choose from until 2015.

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) told The New York Times the delay will “prolong and exacerbate health care costs that are crippling 29 million small businesses.”

Democrats are also complaining more openly about other implementation delays. And the substance of the law itself isn’t immune from bipartisan criticism — 33 Senate Democrats cast a non-binding vote last month to repeal the law’s tax on medical devices, saying it’s a threat to innovation that could raise costs for consumers.


quote:

Landrieu is already facing a tough reelection fight next year. And one of the Republicans who has lined up to challenge her, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), is a doctor who still sees Medicaid patients when Congress isn’t in session.

In addition to rank-and-file Democrats who voted for the healthcare law, Republicans this time are hoping to defeat Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) — who was the primary author of the Affordable Care Act in his position as Finance chairman

ACA is the tip of the iceberg. Its primary function over the long term is to serve as the legislative vehicle through which single payer will come into existence.

Unfortunately policy failures are sometimes rewarded with substantial increases. I believe this is what will happen with this mess. I also think the failures were known and accepted as steps toward a single payer system.

It won't get repealed, but one can hope that it helps defeat many dems in the future. Forward

Exactly right...Dems want this to fail in every manner as they believe the only outcome will result in single payer system.

They're wrong. The outcome will be a more expensive version of pay the fricking middleman.

Just like before this clusterfrick but worse.

So, Mary Landrieu, the political whore, is going to start pretending like she is concerned about aspects of Obamacare?

What a joke - and people will fall for it and vote her back in.

You guys realize ObamaCare is not really about health care?

It's about corrupt, power hungry people wanting more control and power - over all of us - oh, and your money too.

Some are just realizing the atrocity this law is. Problem is, that the law is actually worse thand those dems think it is right now.
They destroyed the health care system- the best in the world. You can thank greedy men- politicians, hospital administrators, drug company CES, and a few criminal docs.

This.

Please show me any federal program that has ever been repealed. I need the hope/encouragement.

Well said RTS. This is the endgame.

re: Dems Begin to Freak Over Obamacare Chaos


The vunerable democrats are simply getting what they deserve. They allowed the Obama administration to delay implementation of this law until after the presidential election, but not before the midterms.

They got destroyed in the last midterms over Obamacare and lost the House. They may just get destroyed again and lose the Senate too.

This on top of unpopular gun control measures that the Obama admin is trying to ram through could be the end of democrat control of the Congress for a long time.

At some point, it seems that congressional democrats would get tired of the Obama administration building monuments to itself that hurt the country as well as result in loss of seats.

I think you are correct for probably the next three decades or more. At some point, this bill will result in a major governmental collapse for the US and single payer will be strongarmed.

This is gonna take a while, but the unbelievable burden it will cause this country and its citizens is going to be astounding.

If the Repubs were smart, they would start screaming from the watchtower about implementation of certain parts already being pushed back a year... Get the momentum rolling going into the 2014 mid terms.
