President Obama’s perspective on healthcare is far removed from reality, it seems. He recently declared regarding his healthcare law, “this thing is working,” while Americans across the country are bearing the burdens that the law has created. Just ask the widows in an Alabama county who have been dropped from their health insurance because of the healthcare law.
A report released April 9 by the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services urged greater scrutiny of doctors who are the highest billers for Medicare payments.
According to former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the timeline for the ObamaCare rollout was "flat-out wrong." Clearly more comfortable speaking honestly about the healthcare program now that she has resigned her position, Sebelius admits that the federal exchanges would have benefited from "more time and testing" before officially going online.
Kathleen Sebelius' resignation as the head of Health and Human Services, and her replacement, is likely to have little impact on the rolling disaster of ObamaCare.
The implementation of the new healthcare law has produced a number of unpleasant surprises for those who ignored warnings by ObamaCare critics, including increased costs, less choice, and in many cases, the loss of their current health plans and physicians. Adding to this list is the latest development: Consumers will be unable to purchase health insurance from now until the next enrollment period, which begins January 1, 2015.
