The Obama Healthcare Reform Bill For Better Or Worst

Obama Healthcare Reform Bill

The Obama Healthcare Reform Bill For Better Or Worst was signed by President Barrack Obama on 3/23/10 in the Whitehouse with the Democrat leaders of Congress as a background. The minority party (Republicans ) and a few Democrat Congressional members were unable to stop the passage of the Healthcare Bill. The polls indicated that some 60% of the people were not in favor of passing the Healthcare Bill. Sadly , none of the minority party were in attendance to witness the historic signing of the Healthcare Reform bill.

Just after we watched the signing, we made a call to our Democrat Congressman’s office with a request for information regarding the contents of the Healthcare legislation. His staff of six were unable to answer our questions. They advised us that they would forward the information to the Congressman who was in Washington * see footnote

The following seven questions were.

1. Will the costs of premiums for Medicare members go up higher now that the bill is the law?

2.Will the cuts ( $ 500 million ) in the Medicare program increase members supplement insurance premiums and coverage’s?

3. What has the student loan program legislation have to do with healthcare The Student Loan Bill passed by Congress now excludes banks from making Student loans and creates a government takeover of the program. Removing the banks from making student loans will increase the unemployment in the PRIVATE SECTOR and provide more PUBLIC JOBS further impacting unemployment in the private sector.

4. Why is the government mandating paying for health insurance when many of the services will not be available until 2014?

5 Why did President Barak Obama announce that this bill will mandate insurance companies to provide services for pre existing conditions. It was reported that the services would not be available to 2014?

6.Why didn’t the bill exclude healthcare coverage for non citizens and Illegals?

7. Why didn’t the bill exclude public paying for abortions ? If the bill excludes paying for abortion, why was it necessary for President Barrack Obama to issue an executive order?

As of today, we have not receive a response to our questions. Prior to the voting on Healthcare Reform we requested our elected Congressman to VOTE NO on the legislation. The Congressman apparently regarded the wishes of the Democrat party leadership and President Barak Obama more important then the wishes of the people who elected him.

On Thurs. President Obama travel to Iowa to tell the audience and the American people that history was made in signing the Healthcare Legislation on 3/23/10. In true campaign mode Barak Obama arrogantly told the Republicans ‘’ go for it’’ in reference to the Republican decision to fight to appeal the Healthcare Reform Bill

Shameful as it was when President Obama chastised the Supreme Court Justices for a campaign finance decision in front of Congress and the American people. The news media later reported that President Obama was wrong to make his statement. The American people did elect the opposition party to go to Washington to represent them.

President Obama’s statements were derogative, arrogant and unbecoming from the President of our country in addition to insulting those voters who elected those members of Congress he referred to in his speech.

While the country and the economy suffers, President Obama has neglected to fulfill his promises for jobs and fixing the economy upon taking office in Jan. 2009. Time will only tell if the opposition party and the people were right in their request not to pass the Healthcare Reform Bill.

In the last few days, the legislation has revealed that the contents of the bill will have a negative impact on businesses, economy and further impact job unemployment. Many who voted for the bill have acknowledged that insurance premiums will continue to rise.

Foot note: Wake up America, sound off and call your public servant and make your voice be heard! In 2010, the Congressman lost his seat in the election.

Obamacare is a huge Ponzi scheme.

Pay now and get services 4 years later.

Money will be held in a trust fund ( lock box ) for future claims payment. Do you really believe that we can trust the federal government not to use the money.

The interest on the federal national debt is $1 BILLION A DAY. SOCIAL SECURITY is paying out more than it is collecting.The government needs to borrow more money to pay the trust fund IOUS. The Healthcare Reform bill will cost at least $1.3 billion over 10 years.

President Barak OBAMA mocked the minority party and said ARMAGENDEN didn't come down when he signed the healthcare bill.

Wake Up America, maybe not today but surely sometime soon.

Can you tell us what is in the bill that apparently the president and majority leader pelosi didn't know before the bill was voted on , passed and signed by Barack Obama.

Congress is still trying to figure out what the bill meant to healthcare reform.

Please tell us what student loans have to do with healthcare in the healthcare bill.

Make it simple for idiots.

The polls showed that 60% of the people did not favor the Healthcare Reform Bill.The arrogance of President Obama,the democrat leadership and other members of the democrat congress,who needed to buy off many members to get their votes to pass the bill. The cancer of our present society is quite evident in Washington.Parts of the Healthcare Bill may be found to be unconstitutional, if so, it will be interesting to hear what excuses the present administration and congress will spin on the American people.

The people need jobs something that eludes this congress.

the healthcare bill that is passed by obama is killing jobs on the medical field and scaring healthcare investors and insurance... no doctors and healthcare professional like what he is doing and it gives more workload to healthcare professionals... america is the best in medical field before obama sits in the whitehouse... i dont know if after he change the healthcare it will still be competitive... he is destroying the flow... instead of making jobs he is destroying jobs!!!

The calls did no good. The polls did no good. The speaking by the American people that they did not want the bill did no good. No calls and no speaking now will do any good. All we have left to do is vote against the majority party and the president who has obviously let us down.

One theory I have been tooling around as to WHY this healthcare bill was so important to the dems and the president is two-fold. One, it was one of the primary bases during his campaign. He said he would do it, and by golly he was going to do it, irrespective of what was ultimately going to wind up in it. He wanted what he wanted, plain and simple, and so long as it was called a health care bill, so be it.

The other logic is that we have an enormous and ongoing growing deficit. Some of that was inherited, true. But most of it has come into being AFTER the Bush administration left office. BUT, while some of the health care bill takes effect immediately (the pre-existing condition clause is one of them BTW), most of it, you are correct doesn't start until 2014. But the taxes start NOW. And, incidentally, the government also happens to need money NOW. If they can front load the bill, they can add those revenues to the tax rolls, and could likely roll them into the deficit, thereby reducing it—ah...but the kicker will be when the bill really starts to head into fruition, a lot of the monies collected won't be there. Kind of reminds me social security, no?

Anyway, if they can collect the taxes now, and use some of the proceeds to reduce the deficit, they can go to the American people and say, "we gave you health care and all of the naysayers said it would COST us more than projected. Instead, we LOWERED the deficit."

It's an old trick. Let's hope we don't let ourselves be duped by it yet again.

Great job, BTW, on a hub well done Jon.

This President and his Democratic majority in congress have chosen to ignore the will of the MAJORITY of the American people. This is arrogant and unethical. They are not working for the the American people as they were elected to do. They really don't care what the people want. they serve an ideology not the american citizenry. They must go!!

Have you noticed that the problems with the HEALTHCARE REFORM bill haven't been reported by the liberal news medias as before the bill passed.

Obama now is pushing a Finance Reform bill wanting congress to act SWIFTLY and pass the legislation.

Why, because it was discovered that Goldman Sax employees donated $1 million to his political campaign for the presidency.Goldman Sax contributed to other members of congress who refuse to return the donations.

One of presidents Obama's pledges was to rid Washington of special interest. I guess he meant after the election, pay back?.

Nice piece. I've finally gotten around to becoming a fan, thought I already was.

B.O. is the only one B.O. cares about. Things are set for the future so he can blame someone else for screwing it up. The Democrat's don't care what the majority of Americans want. The Republicans haven't been much better, they are trying to come back.

Read the bill; ask John Conyers?

Political affiliations and associations aside, thank you for posting this well written article! For the record, I didn't vote for Obama, but I didn't want Palin to be anywhere near anyone's next heart attack either. I can't criticize him for the health reform bill, however, because that's what "everyone" voted for him to do!

PLEASE, IF YOU READ THE BILL AS YOU WANT ME TO READ THE BILL, respond to the questions I asked of my Congressman. For your information , the bill was passed even before it was written. The bill was NOT on the floor as required per Congressional rules at the time of the voting. The final bill voted on was finished later somewhere .In the Senate, a section that was added to the bill was questioned by a Senator. Senator Dodd was unaware of the section being added and could not recall when the section was entered into the bill The process and the bill is flawed ,an irresponsible act of corrupt government.

I have written other hubs about the healthcare bill that may interest you.

"The Obama Healthcare Reform Bill For Better Or Worst"

"For worst" is the catch phrase here, how could it be anything but, we're federalizing 17% of the economy and entrusting the worlds best healthcare system into the hands of a corrupt federal government!

So what do we do amidst the worst financial woo's since the great depression - We elect liberal politicians to erect the largest entitlement program in history, which of course puts a ball and chain on the economy, by balooning deficits and sky rocketing tax hikes!

The initial problem with healthcare began with government interference so now the solution is to turn it over to the one's who caused the problem! Wow, go figure!

The Supreme Court Judges in questioning the Government showed that the Government's presentation was enept and contradictive. The manditory part to purchase insurance was either a tax or a penalty. The Government's team was unsure to what was right.A decision will come in June 2012.

Frankly, I'd like to know what bills any of them actually read on any side. So they are inept? Did your congressman read the bill? Your senator? If not, don't vote for them. The time for that argument has past. Get to the bill itself. Would you have all these concerns if the last guy and his cronies were still in power? The SAD answer is NO.

OUR CONGRESSMAN LOST IN NOV 2010. He was a blue dog Democrat, not a bad guy.He was a loyal party Democrat who was directed to vote for the party inlieu of the people. I personally did have conversations with his staff about the healtcare bill.

The Obama propaganda machine is in high gear and has been aided by the liberal media, sorry to say.

Try watching C-Span when they show congressional hearings, live uncut programs.

Thanks for the comments.

So, he voted for a bill he didn't like that prevented him from getting re-elected? That's quite a sacrifice. You can believe that if you want. You really believe that? Really?!? I'm sorry friend, I have to put you in the ideologue category.

The VERDICT is in, Justice Roberts was the swing vote.

Today 6/28/12, the Supreme Court ruled that the Obamacare law is constitutional on the basis that the mandate to force citizens to purchase health care insurance is a TAX. During the Healthcare debates in 2009, President Obama said that the mandate IS NOT a tax. The President apparently lied.

The President, shortly after hearing that the law is constitutional , appeared on television and said that the verdict by SCOTUS was ‘’ A victory for the American people’’. A massive tax is a victory? In 2014, the mandate will be in effect, it will be a massive TAX increase on the American people. The President and the Democrat leaders celebrated the win for the party in their efforts in passing the Healthcare legislation.

The American people were lied to by the President and Congress in the process of approving the Healthcare bill. Now knowing that the mandate fine as ruled by SCOTUS is to be a TAX, will Congress continue the perpetration on the American people or will Congress revoke the law as unfair and unjust to the middle class who will be mostly affected by the Healthcare law.

As speaker Pelosi said ’’ we need to pass the bill to find out what’s in it ’’.Speaker Pelosi emphatically stated that the mandate was a fine and not a TAX. The 111TH CONGRESS will go down in history as the most corrupt in our nation’s history. The Healthcare bill was passed by members of Congress prior to reading the bill, prior to a debate, no amendments were allowed and prior to the final bill being written.

Note that the bill being voted on in House was not available on the floor at the time of voting. A violation of House rules.

In Nov, the American people will vote for a President and a Congress in determining the future of our country. Will the American people vote for corruption and poverty or will they vote for prosperity and a new beginning? The 2012 elections will be the most important election of our time that will set the direction of our government for the present and future generations.

Check this link, Obamacare is a tax law.

Obamacare – Anatomy of Government Fraud

There are at least 24 new taxes in the bill of which 14 will directly effect the middle classes.

A majority of the regulations have yet to be written, yet the price tag for Obamacare has more than doubled from an estimated $870 billion to over $2.4 trillion.

3/11/13 an update

Obamacare just listed 20,000 pages of regulations. How does the Congress pass a bill that many who voted didn't read the bill that started out as 2000 pages long?The bill is still being written by people not even in the government.The 2014 Ryan House budget plan does away with Obamacare. The CBO , in 2010 estimated the cost to be $900 billion.A recent CBO estimate is a cost of $2.8 TRILLION.The Obama administration is not transparent as Obama promised if elected.Barak Obama Campaign Promises

Obama promised hope and change will be coming to Washington #11. To reduce the deficit by 50% in his first term.
