Obamacare's big lie exposed

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
ObamaCare’s negative consequences — sharply higher premiums, lower payments to treatment providers, reduced access — are looming so predictably that they can’t be called “unintended.”

Physician Scott Gottlieb, an American Enterprise Institute resident fellow, writes for Forbes about a California insurance broker who sells health plans to individuals and small businesses. She’s “prepping her clients for a sticker shock” this fall when insurers will unveil how they’ll cope with ObamaCare’s full brunt.

He says they’re “hinting to her that premiums may triple” — and that double-digit hikes are likely nationwide.

Dr. Gottlieb notes that ObamaCare empowers state regulators to block such premium increases and created a federal agency to oversee rates. But the regulators are mum on what’s looming. He says that’s because it’s all part of ObamaCare’s design, which doesn’t increase efficiency or competition.

If the states block the price increases the companies will drop out of the market.  If the government squeezes the docs they will drop out of the insured market.  What the Democrats will then do is have their excuse to implement the single payer plan they always wanted and ration health care to everyone.

For the military and retirees from the military the cost of health care are going to skyrocket even higher and Obama is seeking to push them into the state exchange system, at the same time he is refusing to reform Medicare.  That assumes there will be a state exchange to deal with.  In fact the grand scheme behind the Obamacare law was to find a way to lower the cost of Medicare.  It will be an epic failure all around.
