ObamaCare Working Exactly How Liberals Planned

For all the apologies and concern from Democrats because people are losing their insurance plans, ObamaCare is working exactly how it was written and intended to affect the U.S. population. Most liberals and Democrats made no secret of their intention to have the U.S. move to a one payer government system and many opined that ObamaCare was the first step in that direction. ObamaCare would increase the number of Americans on government run Medicaid insurance plans for not only those that are presently uninsured, but also through the millions of people who will lose their current private insurance plans due to ObamaCare rules. This, ultimately, was the goal of liberals – increase government run insurance plans while taking away business from private companies.

How else could anyone interpret the essential ObamaCare requirements placed on insurance plans? These are the 10 essentials for health insurance plans to meet ObamaCare guidelines:

  • Ambulatory patient services
  • Emergency services
  • Hospitalization
  • Maternity and newborn care
  • Mental health and substance abuse disorder services, including behavioral health treatment
  • Prescription drugs
  • Rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices
  • Laboratory services
  • Preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management
  • Pediatric services, including oral and vision care

And because of these essential guidelines along with accepting all preexisting conditions, health insurance premiums are going to skyrocket. It just does not make sense that a single man’s plan include maternity care or that a couple in their 70’s plan include newborn care. It also does not make sense for young and healthy people’s plan to include chronic disease and mental health coverage (low probability). If insurance companies have to accept preexisting conditions than why can’t people sign up for low probability insurance plans if they need it (a 50 year old pregnant woman or 18 year old with cancer) instead of making it an expensive requirement? To make these essential guidelines mandatory for all insured only has one consequence – It will lead to more people losing their private insurance plans.

So ObamaCare is working exactly how liberals drafted the law – It is the first step to an expensive on payer system controlled by the IRS and Health and Human Services government entities.


  1. You're right on the money with this one, Patrick!

    I would add one more thing though (you know me - I'm never satisfied!). The reason the lefties are so Hell-bent on getting to a one-payer system comes down to the same motive they have for most of their schemes: wealth transfer and control. They NEVER cared about lowering the cost of insurance, only about making sure that one segment of Americans pay for all the rest. And what greater power is there than to control everyone's access to healthcare?

    1. Absolutely, controlling one-sixth of our economy is a big deal for liberals.
