Scrambled Eggs…Obamacare Style

and reading countless accounts of Obamacare, one website developer used the scrambled eggs as a great analogy for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). There is no way you can change scrambled eggs into sunny side up eggs. You need to toss the entire mess out and completely start over.

Remember, our dear leader promised two important elements: ‘If you like your doctor or your health care plan, and may keep it period and the ACA will not add one dime to our national debt’.

Well…as millions of citizens are finding his promise was at best very misleading statement on keeping your health care or doctor, and he sort-of apologized. But 90 million are now or will be without healthcare. Our hubris president now has a recovery plan. He is proposing that the qualification for receiving government funded health care may be lowered to $50,000/yr income, but the OBM estimates this will add over $1 trillion to our national debt.

There is no doubt that our health care system now is the best in the world, and we have wonderful doctors and hospitals that serve us well.

However, this service is not available to all that are in need. Our Medicare and Medicaid are plagued by fraud and mismanagement. Trial lawyers are misusing the system, forcing doctors to practice defensive medicine. This is costing us all a great deal of money.  Obamacare fixes none of these issues, but his plan punishes the ratepayers and the sick, and will destroy our health care system. 

 So what is the fix? Some elected adults need to get together and understand the issues and develop a solution to the known problems, but this is reflective on those of us who elect our representatives. We have elected men and women to Congress for decades for the wrong reason, i.e. what can you do for me not for the Country. Until we start electing qualified and responsible representatives we will continue to get scrambled eggs when we ordered sunny side-up. When you elect a fool and you get foolish legislation
