Uh Oh Obamacare is the Law of the Land

A Doctor writes about what happens at your *free* Obamacare annual exam:  A Physician's New Reality: Patients Ask Me to Break the Law 

I guess this is one time I can say we don't have to worry about it because we don't have well visits for the kids, so when they are seen, we have to pay for it. I currently go to a doctor who isn't on my insurance (while I am still able) and I just pay cash for my doctor visits. I'm guessing it won't be long before Obamacare dictates that we only see doctors who take our "government approved" insurance.

The best news of the day comes from Human Events- Obamacare may unravel. Obamacare in Crisis as 2013 Approaches 

Those who wrote the evil that is Obamacare did not anticipate that states would opt out of setting up exchanges.  ~evil laugh~     My two favorite quotes from the above article:

”The Obama administration faces major logistical and financial challenges in creating health insurance exchanges for states that have declined to set up their own systems,” noted author Elise Viebeck, who went on to say it was “a situation no one anticipated when the Affordable Care Act was written,” because “the law assumed states would create and operate their own exchanges, and set aside billions in grants for that purpose.”

"What?  ”A situation no one anticipated?”  How could that be true?  The governors resisting President Obama’s health-care takeover are not seceding from the Union.  ”Rebellious” is a description of their attitude, not their legal status.  They’re not breaking, or even challenging, any laws; they’re exercising a provision written into ObamaCare, and it’s one of the relatively few sections of that disastrous law that actually was written in ink, at the time of passage.  State governors were always given the option of asking the federal government to run the exchanges in their states."

"The bitter irony is that all of this billion-dollar confusion is happening because ObamaCare seeks to replace far less expensive and more efficient market forces with one-size-fits-all mandates and central planning.  The purpose of these health care exchanges is to create a titanic fifty-state bureaucracy that helps consumers find the best Washington-approved health care policies, and collect all of the tax credits owed them – a sort of “” for health insurance, as Viebeck describes it"
