ObamaCare: A Socialist Welfare Pyramid Scheme by AL MARTIN (AL MARTIN RAW.COM)
(1-22-14) The thing with ObamaCare regarding pre-existing conditions is to deflect public attention from the underlying fact of what Obama is trying to accomplish -- to give the 47% of have-nots medical insurance and have the 53% pay for it. Why? Because the 47% are his constituency.
Will Obama's constituency be happy? Of course, they’ll have health coverage they never had before.
It should be remembered that of the 47% have-nots, 80% of them don't even have a computer. And then only 1% of the 47% even understand what this is all about.
How you sign them up and frighten them into signing up -- the most cost-effective way and how it's being done now -- is to send them letters in the mail and say that their Medicaid is going to be cancelled. Then they have to sign up in order to have some continuing health insurance at public expense.
This could have been avoided -- starting in the 1980s -- when Olympia Snowe and other so-called moderate Republicans proposed an idea to turn Medicaid into an HMO itself -- instead of making Medicaid completely free of charge for the poor.
