Telling Healthcare Reform Like It Is
Healthcare, as we know it, is going, going and will soon be gone.
Your Dad needs bypass surgery but three of the four surgeons near him refuse Medicare patients so he will go on a waiting list.
Your Mom is recovering from a broken hip but no home healthcare is provided to help her transition back to functioning independently.
Your husband is battling heartburn and must wait 3-7 weeks to see a gastroenterologist.
A pediatric well care appointment for your son involves a 24 day wait.
The PPACA, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, has caused some of these scenarios already. The worst of the provisions of PPACA (Obamacare) law are written to be implemented only after the next Presidential election. Then we will have less availability, higher costs and fewer treatments compared to the medical care we now receive.
We can look at healthcare in the UK, Germany and Canada to know that less innovation, less availability and decreased quality of care is ahead for us. Massachusett’s healthcare reform, started in 2006, contains almost all of the major provisions of PPACA (Obamacare) and the demand for healthcare there has soared as have the costs…with hugely increased waits for basic care.
These may be unintended consequences from well meaning politicians but overwhelming evidence, wherever this type of healthcare is done, demonstrates the damage PPACA (Obamacare) will accomplish.
Learn what is in Obamacare, what is in the Ryan alternative and how to question your politicians about their position on this issue so you can help to preserve America’s healthcare. Come back to South Florida 912 for more healthcare information to come.
If Obamacare is implemented, by the time your 2 year old celebrates a 10th birthday America’s healthcare system will be as inefficient, unresponsive and impersonal as the IRS, Amtrak, Fannie and Freddie. All are examples of massive government control doing what it does worst.
