Remember - Dissent is Patriotic - Photo by Kevin SmithBarack Obama’s number one job is not to defeat the Republicans.  Rather, his number one job is to run the government well.  And when it comes to Obamacare, he has failed miserably.  The launch of Obamacare has been such a colossal fiasco that words like “disaster” and “catastrophe” simply do not do it justice.  According to recent polls, Americans are against Obamacare by an average margin of about 10 percent, and even many liberals that fought so hard to get Obamacare passed are now abandoning ship.  All over America, health insurance policies are being canceled, health insurance premiums are absolutely skyrocketing, and millions of people that actually wanted to get health insurance through Healthcare.gov find that they are unable to do so.  Yes, the U.S. health care system was already a complete and total mess before Obamacare, but now Obamacare has made things much, much worse and there is little hope that things will improve any time soon.  The following are 9 reasons why most Americans (including a growing number of liberals) absolutely hate Obamacare…


#1 The launch of Obamacare has been such a colossal technical failure that many liberals are now completely ashamed to be associated with it.  At this point, it is nearly impossible to sign up for a health insurance policy on Healthcare.gov.  According to USA Today, the first person to successfully enroll in Obamacare in the state of Delaware had to spend seven hours on the phone and in front of the computer to accomplish that feat…

She needed seven hours of waiting on the phone and sitting in front of her computer, but Janice Baker can claim something few people in the First State can at the moment: She has signed up for health coverage through Delaware’s insurance marketplace.

Officials from the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services declared Baker the first confirmed resident to have enrolled in the marketplace, which opened Oct. 1 as part of the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare.

A lot of liberal pundits are not pulling any punches when describing how nightmarish the launch of Obamacare has been.  The following is how Ezra Klein of the Washington Post described the launch of Obamacare…

So far, the Affordable Care Act’s launch has been a failure. Not “troubled.” Not “glitchy.” A failure.

#2 In some areas of the country, people are only able to purchase health insurance from a single company on the Obamacare health insurance exchanges.

#3 Obamacare is causing health insurance premiums to skyrocket, and many liberals are absolutely shocked when this happens to them.  In fact, one liberal blogger was horrified to learn that Obamacare is going to nearly double his monthly health insurance premiums

My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who don’t go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe.

Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wife’s rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284.

#4 Obama promised us that if we liked our current health insurance plans that we could keep them.  Unfortunately, that was a lie.  All over the country, existing health insurance plans are being canceled thanks to Obamacare.

#5 Large numbers of employers are no longer offering health insurance to their employees thanks to Obamacare.

#6 Lots of liberals are actually losing their good paying jobs because of Obamacare.  For example, thousands of Connecticut doctors were just fired by UnitedHealthCare

In the midst of major changes in health care, UnitedHealthCare has sent thousands of pink slips to Connecticut doctors.

Termination letters went to physicians caring for Medicare patients. Those letters were sent out to doctors caring for ‘Medicare Advantage’ patients. It’s a plan, marketed to Seniors to provide additional services through UnitedHealthCare.

#7 Many liberals are absolutely mortified by the fact that it cost more than 93 million dollars to build Healthcare.gov.

#8 Many people that believe that they have successfully enrolled in Obamacare are not actually enrolled at all.  There are major problems in transmitting enrollment data from Healthcare.gov to the health insurance companies.  This is how it was explained in the Washington Post

The backroom connection between the insurance companies and the federal government is a disaster. Things are worse behind the curtain than in front of it”

Here is one example from a carrier–and I have received numerous reports from many other carriers with exactly the same problem. One carrier exec told me that yesterday they got 7 transactions for 1 person – 4 enrollments and 3 cancellations.

For some reason the system is enrolling, unenrolling, enrolling again, and so forth the same person. This has been going on for a few days for many of the enrollments being sent to the health plans. It has got on to the point that the health plans worry some of these very few enrollments really don’t exist.

The reconciliation system, that reconciles enrollment between the feds and the health plans, is not working and hasn’t even been tested yet.

#9 Obamacare is extremely complicated.  In fact, according to CNSNews.com, the regulations for Obamacare are now over 11 million words long

Bureaucracies in the Obama Administration have thus far published approximately 11,588,500 words of final Obamacare regulations, while there are only 381,517 words in the Obamacare law itself.

That means unelected federal officials have now written 30 words of regulations for each word in the law.

So is there any hope that Obamacare will go away?

Not at this point.  The Democrats control the White House and the Senate, and they have been absolutely united in their position that there will be absolutely no important changes to Obamacare.

The Republicans could have done a substantial amount of damage to Obamacare by sticking to their guns, but when push came to shove they folded like a 20 dollar suit like they always do.

The cold, hard truth is that Obamacare is the U.S. health care system now.  If you plan to live in the United States, you are going to have to deal with this monstrosity one way or another.  If you don’t like it, you are out of luck, because our politicians in Washington D.C. do not really seem to care about the rest of us.

    ObamaCare is a colossal failure just like Obama. Liberals need to suck it up and enjoy their increased premiums and rationed healthcare.

    BTW, premiums will be increasing for the next five years because of a healthcare inflation rate of 20% per year. (Forbes)

    Libs, who did you think was going to pick up the tab for ObamaCare.

    Libs, enjoy the decline……………

    my wife, part of the American retail part-time, minimum-wage, work force, does have an employer who provides bare-minimum health coverage plan.

    her rate tripled on 1 Oct 13.

    Mark of the beast is all about control. If you pay taxes, benefit from EBT – we all legitimise the mark in our hands.

    The mark in the head is due to being influenced by ‘silent sounds spread spectrum’ technology used to introduce external input into the auditory cortex of the brain, to influence (NOT control) thought. However, many of the population are susceptible to this influencing.

    The end times is a period lasting many decades before the tribulation, so prepare accordingly.

    Both Caver Boehner and Leader of the Surrender McConnell CAVED to OBEY-me the Dictaor and creeoy Crazy Harry; thus kissing their rings! They both proved their cowardice! Eighty-one RINO Dem-publicans in the House and twenty-eight in the Senate voted FOR OBEY-meCare!? They voted FOR Socialized medicine ( aka Socialism ). They voted to PERSECUTE ( practicing ) Catholics and other like-minded Christians opposed to birth control and abortion funding that are hidden within OBEY-meCare. They voted FOR the federal government to invade your personal financial information. These humanistic, unprincipled so-called ” public servants ” all proved that MONEY is their god. Americans WILL regret the day their ” leaders ” did this to them!

    I easily found voting results on the web; in both the Senate and the House, by doing a search. I tried to post BOTH links herein but Michael’s program prevented me from doing so.

    Oops – make that OBEY-me the ” Dictator “.

    I guess Obamacare has absolutely nothing to do with health care. Its purpose is the industry wide license to print its own money. This is done by utterly divorcing the business model, especially its profits from any semblance of ethics, or accountability. Not that it had much in the way of accountability to begin with. I am willing to bet that in hindsight, this was the “affordable care acts” raison d’être.

    Just curious, why did this site revert back to the old comment system? You had Disqus for a while.

  • Cyk

    Always funny to see how many things that work all over the world for centuries don’t work in the USofA.
    What’s wrong with you?

    It seemed that every time I went to read comments that were provided by Disqus they were TOO BUSY and I could NEVER get through. It was frustrating. Comments help me to see that I am NOT ALONE in my distress of where our socialist dictator is taking us. So many of our freedoms are being taken away and the media WILL NOT report them. Fox reports SOME, but I get the idea that they either are ignorant or can’t report everything detrimental to our country for A REASON. O’Reilly is giving our president TOO MUCH respect. He and others will never believe that he could be placed in the WH to take over our country. He doesn’t connect the dots!
