“Unexpected” results from ObamaCare. Gee, I’m shocked!
I was originally gonna list a bunch of stuff that the One-Party-Media was forced to print that contained the concept “unexpected”. There are waaaaaaaaaaaay over 100,000 hits on Bing so I’m not gonna bother. If you need a list – and if you need one, you’re a cave dweller – just type “unexpected, obama” into your search engine of choice. It’ll be a real treat.
Off topic: I think historians will record this Administration as the “Unexpected Presidency”. Not so much that a black Marxist could get elected, but that the results of his policies are “unexpected” by people who promote themselves as well-educated and intelligent.
Anyway, in keeping with all of his other policies, ObamaCare is having “unexpected” results. As reported in the Drooling Whitish Chick…
WASHINGTON — When Congress passed the health care law, it envisioned doctors and hospitals joining forces, coordinating care and holding down costs, with the prospect of earning government bonuses for controlling costs.
First of all, I’d like to know just how the hell Congress could have “envisioned” all that from a 2,000+ page bill nobody had read. Is Chriss Angel on somebody’s staff or something? Yeah, he probably is, come to think of it.
Now, eight months into the new law there is a growing frenzy of mergers involving hospitals, clinics and doctor groups eager to share costs and savings, and cash in on the incentives. They, in turn, have deployed a small army of lawyers and lobbyists trying to persuade the Obama administration to relax or waive a body of older laws intended to thwart health care monopolies, and to protect against shoddy care and fraudulent billing of patients or Medicare.
Consumer advocates fear that the health care law could worsen some of the very problems it was meant to solve — by reducing competition, driving up costs and creating incentives for doctors and hospitals to stint on care, in order to retain their cost-saving bonuses.
I’m actually kinda grasping at straws to add something to the stupidity of the highlighted sentence.
The bottom line here is really that the people of the United States, in 2008, proceeded to elect what they thought was intellectualism, intelligence and clarity to the highest office in the land. They just forgot about the fact that Bozo the Candidate had actually accomplished less than every 18 or 19 year old young man who completed and graduated from the US Marine Recruit Training program. Hopefully we can begin to set some of this foolishness right in 2011 and throw the Arrogant Louis out onto the street so he can rescue Jimmy Carter from the being the worst ex-President as effectively as he rescued Jimmy from the worst President award.
With respect to the NYT and the collective known as “consumer advocates”, there is no hope for them.
