So. First, we were told “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” Naaaahhhh.
Then, we were told “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” Naaaahhhh, again.
Now, we find out from Dr Paul Gottlieb, former head of CMS, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, that if you like your drugs, well, that’s great, but we won’t be covered for many of them.
That’s right, folks. Under the panacea of the PPACA, the Patient Protection and (un)Affordable Care Act, many drugs which are used to help patients with AIDS, cancer, certain coronary and cholesterol drugs, pain meds, etc, will no longer be covered, AND, out of pocket expenses will not be counted towards any deductible, co-pay or other cost-offset outlay.
That’s right. To paraphrase the soup Nazi, “no insurance for you!”
How are you liking it now?
Hey, Nancy, Harry and Barry… We are liking it less and less as we learn more and more what’s in it. It is becoming increasingly painful to the average American, that he and she have become bruised, abused and tattooed by all the horrible pieces of a law that not one Democrat Senator had a pair to say, “Wait, we are screwing the American people.”
If I am wrong, please, PLEASE, give me one name of the Democrat Senator who voted against this absolute piece of garbage in 2010 that is on course to DESTROY quality health care in this country. If you can provide me that name, I will write an apology with equal fervor and will stop writing negative commentaries about this subject.
So, no? Can’t come up with the name? I couldn’t either. And, while I admit 34 Democrat Representatives voted against the law, they are but lost voices in the wilderness of their party.
Be that as it may, the bottom line is that as more information is scoped out and released, we find it continues to be the most horrible law ever conceived by those who we elected to represent us. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy, doesn’t it? No? Me, either.
And sadly, there is no pill for that. At least, not one that will be covered.
