Health Care Reform – on the fast track to – the next election?

obama - author of the great health care experimentAmericans are just waking up to discover they are being duped by a president pushing for health care “reform” that at the earliest would not begin to take place until – 2013 – AFTER the next presidential election!

Because of my connections with several of the major insurance companies, this is a little known secret I have been privy to for a few weeks. Now, American is just beginning to get the message.

Here’s a link to an extensive health care reform story from MSNBC

For one thing, this mess is actually bigger than Hillary Care ever dreamed of being!

But it’s all supposed to be about getting the uninsured, insured – right?

Well, that ain’t going to happen until 2013 at the earliest!

What a crock!

This is politics, pure and simple folks. Obama democrats are hell-bent to get something passed — anything at all — regardless of how egregious it is, and with no regard whatsoever to the long term financial damage it is bound to wreak on the economy.

Want a physical? We can see you in about 13 months.

You’ll never believe what is going on (now) in Massachusetts (unless you live there, of course).

An unintended consequence of the state’s “mandated health insurance” has been to create an over-abundance of demand for medical services. (Remember the old “supply-demand” theorem from Econ 101?)

From the NY Times

What? Nobody thought about this little “side-effect” of requiring health care coverage for everyone? It’s “a recipe for disaster,” according to a physician interviewed for the article.

Although the article does not connect-the-dots exactly in this manner, the underlying lesson to be learned from this episode is that people often confuse “health care coverage” with being able to see the Doctor for preventative care. This confuses the issue.

NOBODY “needs” health insurance to see a physician for a routine visit. Health insurance IS needed by most people to pay for larger expenses.

Hundreds of thousands of New Englanders, suddenly empowered with “health care coverage,” are taking the opportunity NOW to see physicians for things they SHOULD have seen physicians about many months and indeed many years ago.

There continues to be a giant disconnect between “needing” health care coverage for routine medical visits. Only buy “insurance” for expenses you cannot comfortably afford to pay, should they arise.
