More Evidence Obamacare Ripped Off Americans

by Stephen Lendman

Make no mistake. March 23, 2010 will live in infamy. With strokes from 22 pens, Obama enacted the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).

It's a ripoff. It's a healthcare rationing scheme. It's a boon to predatory providers. It's a plan to enrich insurers, drug companies, and large hospital chains.

WellPoint, Inc. is America's largest managed healthcare company. It wrote the plan. It got what it wanted. It benefitted at the expense of people needing care. So did other healthcare giants. They scammed ordinary people for profit.

Ralph Nader calls Obamacare "a pay-or-die system." It's "the disgrace of the Western world." It's a monstrosity. It mocks a fundamental human right.

Just because the Right Wing opposes "Obamacare" doesn't mean that The Left shouldn't oppose it as well...but for different reasons.

Wild guess:    Because the Supreme Court is dominated by Wall Street supporters,  not supporters of People's Interests, it may come to pass that the Supremes will "unexpectedly" legalize the PPACA, the Obama Administration's health care law.....which, after all, is a huge gift to Wall Street by way of Billions of Dollars that for-profit insurers invest in Wall Street interests.   This will give the Supreme Court the image that it is "fair and balanced", even to the point of supporing a black president's "socialialist" agenda.   The Wall Street angles will be ignored in mainstream media.   Fake "lefties"will cheer because "affordable" (i.e.

Vermont Enacts Conditional Universal Healthcare Coverage - by Stephen Lendman

Numerous previous articles discussed Obamacare, described accurately as a rationing scheme to enrich insurers, drug companies and large hospital chains in lieu of universal single payer coverage.

Obama hailed its March 2010 passage as answering "the call of history." In fact, Ralph Nader was right calling it a "pay-or-die system that is the disgrace of the Western world," costing double what other Western countries spend and delivering less, rationing care to enrich corporate providers while making a dysfunctional system worse.

Health care bill, now in hands of the Senate, ignores every industrial threat and harm to health. It finds that people's behavior is the biggest threat. Could this be because all Senators are economically-linked to health-harming industries, AND their insurers and investors? Sworn and public-paid Congress members wouldn't go AWOL on their solemn oaths and duties to the people, would they?

If it were not for people, there would be no Health Crisis.

The legislation the Senate is discussing now is quite interesting and telling by what's there, or not.
