    Protect Yourself From ObamaCare

    ObamaCare will inevitably lead to shoddy health care.

    This link describes how to at least partially insulate yourself.

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/paulhsieh/2012/11/13/5-ways-to-protect-yourself-against-obamacare/





    The long and short of it:



    1. Get a good primary care physician. If you current one is approaching retirement age, get a younger one. Once ObamaCare kicks in it may be hard to find a new one.



    2. Start a health savings account. This is your money under your control and not subject to ObamaCare Death Panels.
    3. Consider a “concierge” physician. This is like keeping a lawyer on retainer. It gets you around the long waits that are inevitable unde ObamaCare.



    4. Consider medical tourism



    5. Help your doctor work in your behalf. If you are just another demanding mooch, they’ll short-change you.





    Remember: In this matter, government is the enemy. They have every reason to deny you health care and none to deliver it.

    A landslide for liberals is on a totally different scale than landslides for most Americans.

    It won't just be shoddy care. It will be intentionally deadly care.

    Canadians go to the U.S. now and some in the U.S. come to Mexico and farther south. In the future, more will be coming south. We get a lot of people from England for dental care, too.

    Granny says, "Dat's right - Obamacare premiums just keep goin' up...

    Obamacare Premiums ‘Bigger Than Your Mortgage’
    November 3, 2016 – During a campaign rally in Jacksonville, Fla., GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said Thursday that Obamacare premiums are skyrocketing – as high as 116 percent in Arizona – so much so that it costs more than the mortgage and rent. “It’s your number one cost right now – bigger than your mortgage. It’s bigger than your rent – first time that’s ever happened,” Trump said.
    The Department of Health and Human Services announced on Oct. 24 “that premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, and that about 1 in 5 consumers will have plans only from a single insurer to pick from, after major national carriers such as UnitedHealth Group, Humana and Aetna scaled back their roles,” CBS New York reported in October. “However, in Arizona, unsubsidized premiums for a hypothetical 27-year-old buying a benchmark ‘second-lowest cost silver plan’ will jump by 116 percent, from $196 to $422, according to the administration report,” the article stated.

    Trump told supporters in Florida that it was just announced “that the residents of Florida are going to experience a massive double-digit premium hike.” He said the exact number is depressing. “Who’s got their number yet? Does anybody know? Should I tell you? Do you want me to depress everybody? You’d just put your head down, start crying and leave. I won’t tell you. I don’t want to tell you. You know why? Because if I do, you’ll be so depressed,” he said. “In the great state of Arizona though as an example, premiums are going up more than 116%, and it doesn’t work. Obamacare doesn’t work. I’m repealing it. We’re gonna replace it with something so much better and so much cheaper,” Trump said.

    He said in contrast, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will “double up” on Obamacare. “Over 90 percent of the counties in Florida are losing Obamacare insurers next year. Think of it. Good luck in that negotiation. In Minnesota, where the premium increase will be close to 60 percent, the Democratic governor said the Affordable Care Act is no longer affordable. Oh, did he take heat - him and Bill Clinton. Did Bill Clinton take heat? He said it’s crazy – Obamacare. He said it’s crazy,” Trump said.

    Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton said the Affordable Care Act is “no longer affordable to increasing numbers of people,” Politico reported on Oct. 12. He later said he regretted that his words were “used against Democratic candidates.” "Last week I said that the Affordable Care Act ‘is no longer affordable to increasing numbers of people.’ I regret that my statement was wrongly used against Democratic candidates in Minnesota and elsewhere," Politico quoted Dayton as saying in a statement. “He said he stands by his remarks that more and more people are unable to afford Obamacare coverage,” Politico stated in an Oct. 21 article.

    Former President Bill Clinton, meanwhile, called Obamacare “the craziest thing in the world” during a campaign rally on Oct. 3, CNN reported on Oct. 5. "So you've got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. It's the craziest thing in the world," Bill Clinton said.

    It'd help if you'd bother to read a bit better. Yesterday, you posted a story about Brexit that stated the high court decision would be appealed, and then when I mentioned that the exit would likely be upheld on appeal, you made an uniformed comment about not being able to appeal a high-court decision. Had you simply bothered to read the article you posted the link to -- you'd have discovered exactly how the process will go.

    Now, you're responding to four-year-old posts as if they were current.

    Seriously, just slow down and read a bit before posting. It'll keep you from getting yourself into situations like this -- and like the one yesterday.
