Surprise! Obamacare Targets Sick People

Are you surprised? I'm not surprised. Communists always target the sick and disabled first. The morons in Congress didn't read the bill, then when they found out about the medical device tax, they assumes there was no way the cost of the tax would be passed onto the consumers.  Who uses medical devices? Sick people, disabled people, or people recovering from a surgery or illness, right?

I posted yesterday about the 17 morons who now want to delay the medical device tax.  They must be up for re-election in 2014.  That's usually the only time a Democrat opposes a tax.

Anyway, I was up late last night reading tax code and trying to find out which medical devices we use here at home would be taxed. In case you don't know, I have two chronically ill kids.  My son's catheters will be taxed and anything that comes from home health or the hospital.  2.3% tax that will most assuredly increase the cost for the consumer.

Vet supplies are taxed, too!  Human medical supplies include pathology, urology, OB/GYN, hematology, orthopedic and the list goes on and one and on.  Below is a great article on the tax and a link to the Federal Register details of "Taxable Medical Devices" 

Obabacare Medical Device Tax Worse than You Thought

17 Democrats Want to Delay the Medical Device Tax

I know, I know...you are probably asking yourself the same questions I asked when I heard the news. Did the morons read the bill before they passed it?  Did the idiots not understand the medical device tax then? Did they finally read the bill? Why now? Why didn't they oppose this medical device tax when the darn Obamacare bill was being rammed down our unwilling throats in 2010?

Casey Calls for Delay of Medical Device Tax

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and 16 other Senate Democrats want the medical device tax - included in the 2010 healthcare reform law that they supported - postponed.
The 2.3 percent excise tax that devicemakers must pay on their gross sales goes into effect on Jan. 1. It's one of the new revenues used to offset the cost of the healthcare law. The Internal Revenue Service issued Wednesday its final rules on the tax, which will impact profits on items such as high-tech burn treatments, catheters, back braces and in-home HIV tests.

Morons, idiots, dolts, jerks, and imbeciles are the nicest names I can come up for these stupid Democratic Senators. Next time, they should read the bill.

Free Market Medicine Works

Okay, liberals, I double dog dare you to watch the video at the following link. Two doctors established a private surgical center and publish the actual cost.  The FREE MARKET works! People who would pay 3,4 or even 7K co-pays for surgeries now pay ZERO. WHY!?  Because they work for companies who pay for the entire surgery if they go to the private facility! It costs thecompany less, so they pay the entire bill.  What a novel idea. The free market works.

Read the article and see the video here.

A scary clip from the article: "A new provision buried in Obamacare effectively prohibits doctors from starting their own hospitals or expanding the hospitals they already own, which has been widely interpreted as a give-away to the American Hospital Association."

Kay Hagan Supports CRPD

I have issues with Senator Hagan.  She is a lackey for the Democratic party.  This morning, I called her office 202-224-6342, as I had about a month ago to inquire as to how the senator planned on voting tomorrow on the CRPD (UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities). A month ago, I was told the senator had not yet made up her mind. Today, the first person to answer the phone told me, "The senator has no official statement on how she is going to vote tomorrow."  Ahhhh.... I told her that was code for "The senator is voting yes on CRPD."

Why would Kay Hagan try to hide that she is voting for a treaty that surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats, and will threaten parental decision making for children with disabilities?  Why would I have to repeatedly ask, "The vote is tomorrow and the senator has no official statement? The people she represents have a right to know how she is going to vote" ?

I was finally switched over to her foreign affairs lackey..um, I mean aide, who told me the senator is voting yes tomorrow.  In 2014, Kay Hagan is TOAST. We are already working hard to see that she is not reelected. She was only elected because she got caught up in the "Obama Sweep" -- 2-14 she will no longer be a senator.
