Care versus Coverage


Recommended Posts


News of what might be Obamacare’s most serious medium-term failing came to me thirdhand. Longtime Sharp VodkaPundit Reader™ cfbleachers alerted me to a Neo-Neocon column based on a Washington Examiner “Watchdog” article by PJM alumnus Richard Pollock. There is so much slow-motion fail built into the 2,000 page law, and so little of it is covered in depth by the mainstream media, that thirdhand is often the only way to learn what’s really happening — and what is yet to come.


First, the beef from Pollock:

Former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey, a Republican who is now a health care advocate, said Obamacare’s lack of first-class hospitals is a big problem.

“It’s not just the number, but who they are. You’ll find under the Obamacare exchanges that the academic hospitals have declined to participate, along with the specialists who practice at those hospitals. The same is true of cancer hospitals,” she said.

“People who are seriously ill need to stay away from these exchange plans,” McCaughey said.

I need everyone reading this to fully understand the implications of what McCaughey said, so I’m going to spell this out for you bluntly. The only way to receive an Obamacare subsidy is to buy insurance through one of the state exchanges or through Healthcare.gov. But doing so will automatically exclude each and every ACA buyer from the nation’s top hospitals and specialists. In other words, the very people who were supposed to be receiving all the wondrous benefits of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” will instead be relegated to second- or third-class care. Not to mention higher deductibles.Scissors-32x32.png
