Trouble ahead

The IRS will be in charge of overseeing Obamacare. Yes, the same IRS that the Obama administration used to obtain private information from conservative and Christian groups, all while trying to silence them before the presidential election. I believe that next, this same "tax-collecting" organization will be used to spy on your health records to see if you are overweight, don't jog enough, get less then eight hours of sleep or are a smoker, to raise your premiums accordingly.

Employers are hiring fewer full-time employees while cutting hours of current employees to under 30 when possible, all to avoid paying for their health care. More doctors are looking at early retirement because of the cuts in reimbursements. Co-pays and premiums have already gone up while coverage has gone down. Unions are becoming more aware that those platinum policies are not as guaranteed as they were told. Medicare and Social Security are having troubles while Mr. Obama tells us that the Affordable Care Act will save us money and be budget-neutral. That would be a government first.

The Supreme Court exposed Obamacare to be the "tax" that it is. With this ominous law coming on us at full speed I still wonder why the Democrats didn't read the bill to find out what was inside it before they passed it. Maybe it was because they didn't want to lie to us when they state that they never knew just how bad it was. Obamacare is not about the care, it is only about Obama.
