The Matt Walsh Blog; Stories of how Obamacare is Improving Lives



Very interesting read here for those so inclined.
Story after story, one more racist than the other, all obviously false.
Besides, until these are verified by Jay Carney and corroborated by MSNBC, how can we believe them?

Tired of racists like him in this country.

Freaking tired of it all.

Racists need to split off and go to a country where their racism will be tolerated.

Tired of these nutjob whacko crazies tearing this country down because they can't handle a black man in the White House. That is the basis and root of all their criticism of this administration.

All I can do is laugh knowing that many of those that have voted for Obama twice are the ones that are suffering.

If the republicans will get out of the way of themselves, the public outcry from the masses and the private outcry from democrats, will result in this thing being scaled back or changed in its entirety.

It is the most damaging, ill-conceived legislation to ever hit this nation...and it just so happens to be the worst implemented piece of legislation in US history too.

It is the perfect storm of ideological misjudgment and incompetence.

Well if Dick Durbin were to say so we can believe him.

Rex and Spidey, read some of those, and comment on them. These are real people's lives, that work their arses off. I know you don't care about decent people, but just want your take...

They don't care.

Their comment will be "They are fake" or "The companies are greedy".

It doesn't matter to them because "their side" won. That's all that matters to them.

Not the lives affected. Not the people who voted for Obama and now regret it.

It doesn't matter to them. They won, America lost. That's what matters.

And seriously, frick this ACA bull shite. I find it absolutely hilarious that people are still defending it.

When I read the title I was expecting to hear how obamacare was helping people. I was expecting to hear how Sally was now able to take little Suzy to the Dr. because of obamacare. And I was going to wonder how that was possible because I don't believe the coverage begins until Jan 15, 2014.

re: The Matt Walsh Blog; Stories of how Obamacare is Improving Lives


I found an old pay stub from back when I graduated college. I now pay per week for myself what I paid per week for both my wife and I seven years ago.

My deductible two years ago was $1500. Its $5000 now.

We have open enrollment next month. We've already gotten warnings from Blue Cross about the increases.

There are fundamental problems with the insurance industry in this country. Someone please explain to me how making it mandatory to purchase insurance from the people with the problem fixes the problems with insurance? Anybody?

My 14 year old son has a life threatening milk allergy. He must have 2 EpiPens available where ever he is, or a total of 6 EpiPens. We have two at home, one in the nurses office at school and he wears one on a belt every day to school, and we have two in a “medicine bag” at home that he takes with him whenever he leaves the house (other than school).

very similar for two random people with a 14 year old son with a severe milk allergy... as if that wasn't enough of a coincidence

A lot of the rest are questionable or have complaints that have nothing to do with the ACA.

Two things could have happened.

1) The same person sent in the same email (not likely)

2) The blog owner copied and pasted the same email twice.

If you've ever copy and pasted mass amount of data, this happens.

I doubt the blogger did it on purpose.

Care to dispute the the colossal frick up of Barrycare?

1) It's not cheaper than the current system. The past 3 weeks have shown this to be true.
2) The only "cuts" made in this bill is reimbursements to healthcare providers, ie doctors. Do you believe this to be a positive thing? What incentive is there for a DR. to accept aca patients when they only get a portion of their services reimbursed, as opposed to private insurance providers? This will drive doctors away from public healthcare, thus lowering the quality of care and increasing wait times.
3) "other" healthcare workers are going to be approved to perform doctorate degree procedures and diagnosis. I can link you several articles, if you'd like (let me know) but it's actually in the bill too. This will lead to a) misdiagnosis, and mistreatment of illnessess/injury, b) more malpractice lawsuits which already drive up healthcare costs, and c) higher wages for said workers. They are not going to assume greater responsibility for the same pay.

Not true. Its not supposed to be cheaper for the underinsured... just reduce costs for everyone else.

You don't think private insurance companies limit reimbursements? They do. That's how they work.

For a lot of care having someone other than a doctor doing the work is actually more reliable and efficient. A lot of nurses can diagnose a strep throat better than a doctor. Personally I think we require too much classroom work for some doctors. It may be cheaper and easier to have lower level doctors who receive more specialized training.

you dont even believe this nonsense. the only people its "cheaper" for are those who have a pre existing condition. there are plenty of examples of people with perfectly good insurance who's rates have either increased or had their plan dropped and had to get a new, more expensive plan.
try just a tad of intellectual honesty.

private insurance pays more than medicare/medicaid across the board

and what is your personal opinion based on? what experience and training do you posses to even provide and educated opinion on the matter?

re: The Matt Walsh Blog; Stories of how Obamacare is Improving Lives


quote:

Child/Adolescent Psychiatrist here in Kentucky. Because of Obamacare, my husband is being forced to change the way he has practiced medicine for years. In a psychiatric evaluation, there are certain questions he is no longer allowed to ask and others that he is being mandated to ask. A government issued checklist is now mandated to serve as the basis of an evaluation instead of the previously utilized evidence based evaluation tools and techniques. An hour and a half evaluation has now been shortened to half an hour, which allows no time to cover the bases, especially in that of a complicated patient with a long mental health history. Also of very important note, many patients who see my husband 1-2 times per month currently will only be allowed to have 4 visits per year, once every 3 months. How is that for better access to health care?


Wow. And that's just the restrictions for mental health treatment. Can't wait to see the restrictions placed on medical treatment ... not.
