Obamacare and the Children

Sorry Kids!

Good morning Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, April 9, 2014. Our dear friend Manny, the Praying Mantis, is here with me at the breakfast table. He has prepared a delicious batch of blueberry pancakes for all of us. Please join us for breakfast and a chat. Manny wants to talk about yet another ugly result of the implementation of the Unaffordable Care Act.

Bad News...

Just last week, about 1,800 New Jersey children lost their health insurance because of Obamacare. Apparently, the government's mandated requirements rendered these policies unacceptable. The cancelled policies were a product of a low-cost children's healthcare initiative called, FamilyCare Advantage. It was offered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey. It took care of the health needs of children whose parents make too much money to qualify for Medicaid. For a reasonable and affordable $144 a month, children were receiving medical, dental and vision coverage. Now thanks to the short-sightedness of Obamacare these children have lost their coverage and their parent have lost their minds. These are real people with real needs. They aren't liars, as Harry Reid , would describe them. They are parents who now have to fear for their children's well-being.

It Wasn't Broken!

The Obama Administration took a well-functioning health plan in New Jersey and decided it was the healthcare equivalent of a broken down old wagon. In reality, there was nothing wrong with this plan that was implemented six years ago. It ran so well that it was thought of as a perfect model for other states looking for cost-effective ways to offer good coverage for children.

Obamacare looked at the plan and trashed it because it did not offer mental health care. They shut down the program and effectively shut out New Jersey's children from receiving quality healthcare that was affordable for their parents. Doctor's visits only cost $5 and there was a $1 charge at pharmacies. The plan did not have deductibles.

A Letter in the Mail...

Parents in New Jersey who had their children covered under the FamilyCare Advantage plan received notification of the cancellation of their child's insurance in the mail. The Obama Administration left them out in the cold. Insurance offered under Obamacare by the exact same provider has a $1,500 minimum deductible. Adding insult to injury, these families will not be eligible for taxpayer funded subsidies because they earn too much money. These families will now be forced to take their sick children to the ER for health care.

This hideous turn of events is not happening in a vacuum. New Jersey now joins at least five million other people who had the plans they could afford and liked cancelled by Obamacare. A new study conducted by the RAND Corporation has reported that one million people whose plans were cancelled because of Obamacare still remain uninsured.

Cancelled!

Going, Going, Gone!

President Obama's signature healthcare initiative has effectively destroyed a system that worked. President Obama's legislation has destroyed healthcare for 85 percent of the population who liked the coverage they had. President Obama's plan has created more uninsured people than ever before. More "change" is about to happen as larger companies find that insuring their employees is completely unaffordable. This President, his administration and members of Congress who applauded his efforts are solely responsible for bringing all this misery to our nation. The fact that they are standing behind this mess is proof, at least to this bug, that your health was never the issue. These people are invested in this disaster for the power. They rightly knew that if they could take over your healthcare, they could control you from cradle to grave. I will pray for you....Manny


Manny's Song


The moment I wake up

Before I brush my wings

I say a little prayer

For you......

POP: I think I am beginning to understand Obama. Like the jealous child, if you have it, he wants it. If you like it, he wants to destroy it.

I wonder, when he is out of office if he will be liked, or will he have to hide somewhere.

I read all about this New Jersey plan. It was wonderful; the first in the country; I think Christie started this. There is a gap between the poor who get free healthcare, and the rich who can pay for it. Christie saw this, and helped those who really needed it. Middle Class needs some help as well. He should be reminding people of his accomplishments instead of people trying to pin the traffic conjestion on him. I am off to the bar. Save me a seat....

Obama really DOESN'T care about his constituents. It is HIS intention to ram Obama"care" down our throats although the plan is not good. Obama is arrogant and elitist, he feels that he knows more than anyone else as far as health plans go. So many wonderful health plans are being discontinued because of this hackeyed Obama"care". American health care was fine the way it was; OH NO, not according to Obummler or Head Idiot in Charge!

Good Morning Oino,

It is lovely to see you up so bright and early! What a crying shame this is. Here we had a plan that actually addressed a problem and solved it! How unique in today's world! But, in truth, Obama could care less about these kids. His goal is much loftier. It's a huge power trip having precious little to do with health issues. He broke what was working and fixed nothing! See you at the Inn. Don't let anyone tell you that Praying Mantis's don't drink. We do!!! I suggest that when Obama leaves office he head straight back to the streets of Chicago. He has some more agitating to do....

Good Morning gmwilliams,

Obama only listens to the true leader( or should I say destroyer) of the nation, Valerie Jarrett. She is easily the most powerful person in Washington who has absolutely no credentials worth discussing. It's simple... take over our healthcare and you rule the nation unopposed. See you at the Inn.

Not one bit of this ACA had anything to do with healthcare or a concern for the citizens of this country. It was a "power trip" on the part of this administration with nothing other than polical reasons.

Obamacare will fail and be replaced by a single-payer system that is what they wanted in the first place. Obamacare was nothing more than a step in a plan to have total government control over our healthcare.

Our government gained more power and individual politicians fattened their wallets by implementing this plan.

Dear Mike,

I am so sick of the whole mess. The lies upon lies upon lies make me feel angry and hopeless. How is it possible that this man is so impervious to not only criticism but well deserved actions on the part of Congress? I have no doubt that this whole fiasco was considered to be the best path to a single payor system, which is exactly what you have been saying all along. You are very wise and I am very thirsty. See you at the Inn.

Dear Tom,

It will continue to get worse and Obama will solve it by instituting a single payor system. After all he has a pen and a telephone. He only needs to call Valerie Jarrett to get things in effect. See you at the Inn.

The result of this whole fiasco gives new meaning to "the 1%." We turned this nation's health system upside down to insure 1%. Time for impeachments and some serious trials.

Dear Frog Prince,

It is way beyond time for impeachment and serious trials. So far there has been serious damage done to our nation and no repercussions whatsoever. See you at the Inn, Prince.

It is pretty scary to me...But the scariest thing is that people don't have a clue what is going on. What is next on the table???? See you my friend at the Inn tonite..For me cookie dough vodka sounds really good.

Dear carol,

They might have more of a clue if the mainstream media cared to actually report the news. Unless someone is highly motivated to find the news they will end up in the dark. What's happening now is shameful and frightening. See you at the Inn. It's a dirty martini for me.

Pop. do you realize that President and Michelle Obama care nothing about the American people. They feel that they are better than the masses. They constantly taken vacations on the Amercan taxpayer's dime. It is time to get them out of office; however the LIEberal sheeple refuse to see how Obama is damaging this country, turning it to a socialist state.

Good Morning gmwilliams,

There was a time when being liberal meant something far different than it does today. Today liberals are intolerant, intractable and short on the facts. President Obama was elected by ignorant voters on the basis of one fiery speech. They required little else. Obama is systematically tearing our nation apart. He has all the willing players working hard for him. Just think of Eric Holder! It is way past time for his impeachment. See you at the Inn.

You're right, Pop. I classify myself as a Liberal but these LibIerals today would be deemed as crackpot socialists. They hate America, want "more equal" income redistribution, and more inane and insipid social programs. How about creating jobs and a strong socioeconomic base. Well, the Obamas have "better things" to do i.e. destroying the country bit by bit by bit. Remember what Adolf Hitler indicated that in 12 years of his reign, Germany would be irrecognizable. Same with America, in 2016, America is going to be a shadow of what it once was! I as a Liberal see what this demon and demoness is doing to our great country, why can't other Liberals see the mistake that the Obamas are?

Dear gmwilliams,

Honestly, the average person who considers themselves to be liberal have no idea what that label means now. Today it is the equivalent of being a socialist. I believe that most Americans could care less about what happens in Washington. When something directly influences their lives they pay attention, but only to that one issue. The time is ripe for the ugly kind of "change" Obama promised. If only voters had done their due diligence, they may have discovered what he really meant. It really wouldn't have required that much on their part. I hope to see you at the Inn. I'd like to continue this discussion over drinks!

My son's girlfriend is a Kentucky home health nurse, and she says that many of her older patients on Medicare are no longer able to get their meds because Obamacare has taken so much money out of Medicare. This is the kind of stuff that does not get reported by the mainstream media.

WillStarr - This administration continues to deny the existence of so called "Death Panels." Many of my wife's friends are either active or retired medical professionals, and they have a different opinion.

In the very near future, anyone whom is over the age of 70 will no longer receive life-saving treatments or surgeries paid for by Obamacare. They will instead receive pain-killers and end-of-life counseling.

They will have no choice but to accept this death sentence, or go to another country and pay privately for their medical treatment. According to the Obamacare administrators, anyone over the age of 70 has pretty much outlived their usefulness.

This plan should put a damper on the party for anyone celebrating their 70th birthday?

Dear WillStarr,

If people don't start making some noise about what they are experiencing. this nightmare will just keep rolling along. Obama cut millions out of Medicare at the expense of the elderly. Older people have a tendency to just roll along with things and not make "trouble." This is all too much.; Between the disaster of Obamacare and the disaster of Obama himself we are in deep, deep do-doo. See you at the Inn.

Dear Mike,

I wish your wife's friends would step forward and talk about what they know. Anyone caught in this nightmare should shout it from the rooftops and get as much attention on themselves as possible. It's time for the people to step up to the plate. Congress is out to lunch and ineffective and the media is reluctant to report anything negative. It's probably time for a march on Washington. See you at the Inn.


Hxprof 2 years ago from Clearwater, Florida

Manny, the death panels referred to by Mike are real. I know a man from France who jumped through all the US legal immigration hoops, finally obtaining citizenship here in the early 90's after years of waiting. He's told me many stories about the problems created by socialized healthcare in France, and what many have feared came to pass there, that is, death panels. His mother was ALLOWED to die because she was too old. Those who've pushed this down our throats KNEW that this kind of thing was standard practice in most, if not all, countries with fully socialized medicine.

When congressmen and women who favored this bill try to weasel out of it this fall by saying that this wasn't the bill they voted for, it's a lie. They knew, fully, where this bill was going. We'll see how many sheeple believe their lies.

Dear Hxprof,

You bet most of them knew, because I honestly believe we have more socialists in this country than could be imagined. They have bought into the notion of government running their lives from cradle to grave and they like it. They might find it hard to swallow when it's an early grave! See you at the Inn.

They can always use the excuse that they never read the bill before they voted. That excuse would not work for me, but some may buy it.

Good Morning Mike,

Voting for something you know nothing about makes a person a total idiot!

Obama is destroying this country. America is gradually metaphoring into a socialist dictatorship a/k/a Nazi Germany. Obama was inculcated in communist ideology from childhood. Many people were duped into voting for him because he represented something new. However, his administration proved to be the worst of all administrations. Obama is making Nixon look like a choirboy.

Intelligent and smart people must assess the situation and rise up. Sadly, so many delusional, schizoid liberals rationalize Obama's policies like pure sub-idiots. The schizoids maintain that Obama is right and that anything that is wrong is Bush's fault. Well, Bush has not been president for EIGHT years. Obama's grade is a F minus, time to get him out of the White House! Get HIM OUT!

Good Morning gmwilliams,

Anyone who cared to know would have understood immediately what a complete fraud Obama is. I thought that when he was running the first time, he was completely transparent for the first and only time. Let's face it, most people don't give a damn about politics until something happens to them because of a bad law or position. If they feel unaffected, they are completely deaf, dumb and blind. I guess, for them, ignorance is bliss. In reality, ignorance spells the end of freedom. See you at the Inn.

Look at the bright side. We will have the pleasure of describing to our grandchildren and great grandchildren what it was like living in the times when the citizens had freedoms. Think about the time when the government worked for us instead of us working for them and you will know exactly what to tell them.

gmwilliams 2 years ago from the Greatest City In The World-New York City, New York

Old Poolman, so true. There was a prediction long ago that America would be under a totalitarian dictatorship. I laughed at this; however, that prediction came to pass. Obama is a dictator; he feels that as president, he has total carte blanche to do as he pleases. He and Moochelle feel that they are superior to their constituents and their word is LAW!

Dear Mike,

What if we are not around because of the death panels? I have to make sure that my grands keep my blogs! My hubs will certainly explain to them just how this nation came unglued. See you at the Inn. Let's kick off the week-end together!

Dear gmwilliams,

All you have to do is look at the way Obama holds his head. Reminds me of every dictator and monster in history! See you at the Inn.
