ObamaCare, a job-killing, Middle-Class Screwing, buget-busting debacle. Note to Malcolm Gladwell: It's not "heroic" to redistribute health care from Middle Class to the entrenched poor

H/t to Harper Lee. From USA Today this past week:
Physician Praveen Arla is witnessing a reversal of health care fortunes: Poor, long-uninsured patients are getting Medicaid through Obamacare and finally coming to his office for care. But middle-class workers are increasingly staying away.
From the New Yorker this week:
“[ObamaCare] did heroic work in broadening coverage and redistributing wealth from the haves to the have-nots." [er, from the Middle Class to the poor]
HA. Leave it to the elite SNOBS to think that taking affordable health care away from the hard working Middle Class so it can be “redistributed” to the lower classes and the illegal immigrants, is “heroic.
New Yorker item cited is “The Bill—Steven Brill on how health care reform went wrong” by Malcolm Gladwell.
One interesting point that Gladwell’s review of Brill makes is to those who think Medicare works so darn nicely. Quoting David Goldhill, a health care author:
And, next up, this: from ObamaCare Grand Master Zeke Emanuel, himself:
80% of employer-provided health insurance will disappear within 10 years.
So to the Middle Class from Obama: Fuck You, and welcome to Massive deductible hikes, sky-rocketing premiums, and perhaps worst of all: massive co-insurance hikes—that latter being the amount you have to pay for a visit or procedure or hospitalization in ADDITION to your co-pays and deductibles.
Now, under ObamaCare, it is pay a very high premium, then pay a very high deductible, then pay your inflated co-pay (now about $50 per office visit) AND pay co-insurance tabs that will shock you, perhaps another 20 to 30% of the billed amount.
Bend Over Middle Class, cause someone must pay to subsidize free or almost free healthcare to the poor. And remember, the entrenched poor are ObamaCares favorites, despite the fact they are firmly entrenched in poverty in the majority of cases because they’ve made spectacularly bad choices: say having a buckets of kids despite the fact they have no way to raise them other than through welfare. Or they came to the USA illegally, and now expect the Middle Class to give of their health care so they can enjoy it for themselves, their uncles and aunties and cousins and on and on.
Talk to any hospital biller these days and they will tell you about the soaring cost being passed on to those in the Middle Class, and they will also tell you if you can prove you are poor then your bills can melt away. ObamaCare is making Poor Pay and the Middle Class is getting the bill.
And finally, from a report this past Oct.: “ObamaCare is a Job-Slashing, Deficit-Deepening Disaster.”
Ah, you work harder, so others don’t have to….and…you get screwed on your insurance costs, while the non-workers gobble up free healthcare. Yep, Osama Obama is fundamentally transforming America: he has screwed the Middle Class, while having suppers and sipping cocktails with the moronic Gwyneth Paltrow, who tells him she can’t speak properly in his presence. That’s not because she is overwhelmed by Obama ugly mug, but because she has her richy rich mouth full of your Middle Class health care transformation.
