6 Reasons to Defund Obamacare Now

Defund ObamacareThe Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) or better know as Obamacare is a serious threat to our healthcare system, to our economy, to our privacy, and to our religious freedom.

Obamacare is now the law of the land and our weak-kneed and spineless politicians are refusing to defund this unconstitutional and unsustainable law.

Now it is upon us like a raging tornado and it will destroy everything in its path. Here are six reasons to defund Obamacare in order to save our healthcare system, our economy, our constitutional freedoms and our nation.

1. Not Ready

The Obamacare healthcare exchanges are scheduled to open on October 1st. In many states the exchanges will not be ready. The computer system to get information about the exchanges is not fully online, so that people don’t have access.

 2. Higher Costs

Studies show that, on average across the nation, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will cause insurance costs to go up by 32% in 2014. That’s on top of the significant increases most Americans have seen over the past two years.

Georgia’s Insurance Commissioner has filed a complaint with Health and Human Services asking them to explain why the ACA will increase insurance rates in that state by 198% for some individuals.

3. Lower Access

Over the next decade, it is expected that an additional 30 million people will acquire health insurance. Economic studies estimate they will try to double their use of the health-care system. At the same time, we are seeing many doctors leaving the profession, rather than deal with the new healthcare law. There are also fewer doctors coming into the system.

In the next few years, demand for healthcare will significantly outstrip supply. In a normal market, the price would go up. Because of the artificial price controls imposed by the Obamacare health law, Americans won’t pay for the increased demand with money, they will pay with time.

4. Hardest on Seniors

Seniors will likely be hit the hardest. New price controls on Medicare will force across-the-board rate cuts to healthcare providers. Many doctors already refuse to take on new Medicare patients, this will only make matters worse. This has already happened with Medicaid, providing a clear picture of what is about to happen to Medicare.

5. Hurts the Economy

The one bright spot with Obamacare comes not by the new implementation, but by its delay. Earlier this year, the Obama Administration decided to suspend business mandate for companies with more than 50 employees.

As a result of the delay, a recent survey of small businesses discovered that 24.4% of small business owners surveyed plan to invest in equipment and facilities over the next year. They also found that 16 percent will hire new employees, and 15% plan to increase wages or other benefits.

The survey found the reason for this dramatic shift among small businesses is the reprieve of the mandate. Businesses now have additional money they thought they would have to spend on healthcare and were willing to invest, hire and increase wages.  This proves that Obamacare is a job killer.

6. Attacks Religious Freedom

All of these problems are in addition to the healthcare mandate for employers to provide coverage for abortion causing drugs. Obamacare will also force all Americans to pay for abortions in the future. If the government can force you to take an action that is in direct contradiction to your religious beliefs, then our religious freedom will be gone.

These are just a few of the problems with Obamacare.

Obamacare is a Disaster for Americans

Other problems you will have to face in the very near future include:

  • Despite what you’ve been told by Barack Obama, you won’t get to keep your own doctor.
  • Your quality of healthcare will decline due to strict regulations imposed on doctors and due to people overwhelming the system.
  • Your healthcare decisions will no longer be determined by you and your doctor but instead by an unelected board of bureaucrats whom are not doctors. They will decide what treatments and care you are allowed to have.
  • In order to comply with the Obamacare mandate, many employers will be forced to reduce their employees work week from 40 hours to 29 hours per week in order to avoid substantial fines.
  • The IRS will be enforcing the payment and collections of premiums and fines for Obamacare. The IRS has just been granted 46 new powers to enforce Obamacare. Does anyone really believe that the IRS needs more power?
  • You will be forced to pay for abortions through your insurance premiums each and every month. You cannot opt out. There is a special “Abortion Fund” allocated in Obamacare and every American will be paying to murder even more of our unborn children.

Obamacare officially destroys the greatest healthcare system the world has ever known. Is our current healthcare system perfect?  No.  But is is a million times better than Obamacare will ever be.  The American people don’t want Obamacare but it has been forced upon us by the Democrat Party.  We recognize the danger it poses to our economy, to our healthcare system,  to our privacy and our religious freedoms and that’s why it must be defunded and repealed now.

Welcome to socialized medicine America!  You are going to hate it.
