|"You folks can thank me later for all the good times ahead with your doctors and in clinics and hospitals. And if your life expectancy drops or you're unhealthier, than you're too fat. Or you're just plain racist."|
After reading the law, the obvious conclusion is that Americans will be forced to buy more expensive health insurance with coverage determined by political whim-- which means poorer coverage, higher premiums, higher costs, less choice in insurance and in treatment.
So, this isn't a shocker.
From CBS News Cleveland:
The CEO of the Cleveland Clinic says that a majority of Americans who signed up for Obamacare have seen their premiums rise.
“About three-quarters of them find that their premiums are higher than they had been previously with other insurance,” Toby Cosgrove told Fox News.
Cosgrove explained that the Affordable Care Act is having a “major effect” upon health care providers.
“We know for example that we’re going to get paid less for what we do,” Cosgrove stated. “Hospitals are going to be paid less for what they do. We also know that insurers are paying less for what we do.”
Cosgrove said providers need to “become more efficient” in how they deliver health care.
"More efficient..." I bet we know what that means. And it certainly doesn't mean a lower quality of care. Nope. Doesn't at all.
