Obamacare kills

Al Sharpton was on MSNBC saying how wonderful Obamacare is. Its state version here is Covered California.

Actually, it kills.

From Mediate:

On Fox & Friends weekend edition, conservative pundit Ann Coulter told cohost Tucker Carlson that her friend’s sister had passed away over the weekend after putting off medical attention because she had lost her insurance coverage under Obamacare.

“This does have real world consequences: I got up the other morning and got an email from a friend saying, ‘My sister almost died because of Obamacare,’” Coulter said.

Coulter said the friend’s sister was kicked off her insurance when Blue Shield pulled out of California, put off going to emergency room despite having a fever because she didn’t have insurance, until she went into septic shock on Thursday. Over the weekend, the friend passed away.

“That is completely shocking,” Tucker Carlson said.

“But it isn’t,” Coulter responded. “It’s expected. We knew this would happen. It’s a horrible story, and people need to know about these stories. I emailed her and asked her if I could tweet this, and she said, ‘Julie would be very happy for you to tweet this.’”

That’s how they’re going to save money under Obamacare. Instead of curing you, the only cost will be a body bag.

    We have a big problem out there with folks not being able to separate the virtual world values along with the real world, where does virtual leave off and where does the real world kick in.


    Covered California got spoofed on it too with their Richard Simmons video..value? Clear example here of the confusion and now looks like they are headed for an audit and they “still” say the video is helping and encouraging people to sign up…well not in my book..it’s popular because of the content of a couple men rolling around on the floor doing strange things.

    But it isn’t the fault of the state John, like Stalin said “true conformity is possible only in the cemetery.” The left needs to control at all costs, of course people will die, but the press and state RAGWUS feeders will do all in their power to keep the deaths faceless and smothered from the private sector citizens, and of course no one will be held accountable for these state induced murders. 🙂

    Although ObamaCare is a massive scam being pulled on the American people I disregard anything that comes out of Coulter’s mouth. IMO Ann is the GOP version of Al Sharpton. Just a flip side of the coin. Players with different colored jerseys who play on the same team. I get the same queasy feeling in my stomach whenever I see a photo of Al or Ann. Both of them deserve one another. I’d love for them to get married someday.

    If you want to know about one of the biggest scams surrounding ObamaCare in many states, to include California, I recommend a public information column on the web by a licensed Ca attorney named Roxanne Sher Olson. She’s very interesting and informative. She writes on many legal topics, to include healthcare. Her on-line column is named “Ask Roxy”.

    Roxanne did a very informative piece of the Medi-Cal estate recovery program under ObamaCare/Covered California for seniors 55-65 years of age. She researched the statute and the facts. Very illuminating. Information you would NEVER EVER find in the mainstream California media.

    I’m no expert on this but this is the way I understand how it works from the information I’ve gathered from various sources. Low income 55-65 seniors who fall under the approximate $15,800 income threshold are forced to join Medi-Cal unless they want to pay the FULL premium cost for a policy on the insurance exchange WITHOUT the gov subdidy. Whatever the State spends on the applicable 55-64 seniors are subject to estate recovery after they pass. So if they own real estate or certain other assets at their time of death – the State has first crack at the estate to recover their Medi-Cal expenditures, and possibly other misc. fees as well.

    While many of those who have an income above the approximate $15,800 threshold are entitled to a nice gov subsidy to help pay for their chosen exchange insurance policy AND NONE OF THAT SUBSIDY IS APPARENTLY SUBJECT TO THE ESTATE RECOVERY PROGRAM regardless of age.

    Oregon faced this problem with their version of ObamaCare and changed their law so that the estate recovery provision would not apply. Last I heard, Washington State was in the process of changing their law too.

    I can’t find even one media article in the state news about this apparent problem in California. What’s going on here? Why is our being so tight-lipped? Are there too many non-paying Medi-Cal enrollees being added to Covered California and does the State need the proceeds from the estate seizures for Covered California to remain solvent?

            You have worked in LE Chaz Steals, in some capacity, it is a give-a-way whenever you write one of your low intelligent school yard sayings.

            Like a typical cop anytime the ignorance in one of your rants is questioned you feel you have been assaulted. You are such a pansy!! 🙂

      Must be a really slow day when John starts using Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson, via Fox News, as his hardcore sources on the ACA.

      That’s like using Donkey as a source – for anything.

    Wow. DJIA down over 2% today. -327. lol. That should wipe about $3B off the CalPers balance sheets. lol. Easy come, easy go. lol. Today’s pathetic ISM report spooked the markets. Looks like there’s another recession on the way (for those of you who believe we left the last one). lol. Here come the 14,000’s.

    Wait until some morning when you wake up,turn on your box and find the DJIA down 3000 points or more. You think that can’t happen??? lol. You think the Big “O” and his new GF Janet pumping $65B of fiat currency into the banks each month is going to save us??? lol.

    One reason the markets are pulling back is due to the Fed’s tapering – reducing QE from $85B to $65B a month and talk of eliminating QE by the end of 2014 (never happen). Look what it’s already doing to the currency prices in the developing nations: Argentia, Turkey, South Africa, Russia ….. China’s slowing down too. Ooops. In a ‘global economy’ if they take a bath so do we.

    Just keep the GD in mind. Things seemed to be getting better for a few years after the big crash until 1937 when the economy double-dipped. Soon thereafter we were in a war.

    History often repeats.

        They might have to table dance down at the club to make ends meet once hyperinflation sets in. The gov can’t run a > $17T national debt and pay the interest on that debt when the interest rates rise to 8% or higher without a massive budget increase (money printing) or cutting back on pensions and gov employment. We’re boxed in. I know one thing for sure. The gov workers will take it in the shorts before the poor do. Gov workers don’t riot.

            SKdog steps out and performs as most modern day LE RAGWUS feeders do, attacks the personal lives of a fellow writer, right in character, the same way the personal attacks against Ashley MacDonald flowed so easily from his fingers, but no criticism of the murderers the killed her.
            this is what you get from GED trained humans, attacks on sleeping habits of a Mother. Human nature? No this type of behavior is only found in the confines of a RAGWUS bureaucracy, amongst people that have set themselves apart as special, deserving of more than those they steal from. 🙂

        The “the sound and the fury” you are hearing Skdog is the younger generations finding out that you have stolen their futures by stuffing your pockets with their tax dollars then demanding more to boot. It is your path that an idiot has taken my RAGWUS feeding fool. 🙂
