Obama's Former Doctor Attacks Health Care Plan
Dr. David Scheiner, former doctor of President Obama, appeared on Lou Dobbs' TV show to criticize his patient's new health care proposal. He says Obama shouldn't expand Medicaid because it is "not a good system", and their patients are treated in a "third class fashion... that's not the American way of life." Dr. Scheiner also adds that Medicare needs to be "tightened up." Dobbs closed the interview by suggesting he should get together with his former patient and talk over "a beer at the White House."

But let's just step back for a second and make sure the American people understand what it is that we're doing. The Affordable Care Act — Obamacare — has now been with us for three years. It's gone through Supreme Court tests. It's gone through efforts to repeal. A huge chunk of it has already been implemented. And for the 85 to 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, they're already experiencing most of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act even if they don't know it. Their insurance is more secure. Insurance companies can't drop them for bad reasons. Their kids are able to stay on their health insurance until they're 26 years old. They're getting free preventive care. So there are a whole host of benefits that, for the average American out there, for the 85 to 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, this thing has already happened. And their only impact is that their insurance is stronger, better, more secure than it was before. Full stop. That's it. They don't have to worry about anything else. The implementation issues come in for those who don't have health insurance — maybe because they have a preexisting condition and the only way they can get health insurance is to go out on the individual market, and they're paying 50 percent or 100 percent more than those of us who are lucky enough to have group plans; people who are too poor to get health insurance and the employers don't offer them. Maybe they work for a small business and this small business can't afford right now to provide health insurance. So all the implementation issues that are coming up are implementation issues related to that small group of people, 10 to 15 percent of Americans — now, it's still 30 million Americans, but a relatively narrow group — who don't have health insurance right now, or are on the individual market and are paying exorbitant amounts for coverage that isn't that great. And what we're doing is we're setting up a pool so that they can all pool together and get a better deal from insurance companies. And those who can't afford it, we're going to provide them with some subsidies. That's it. I mean, that's what's left to implement, because the other stuff has been implemented and it's working fine. The challenge is that setting up a market-based system, basically an online marketplace where you can go on and sign up and figure out what kind of insurance you can afford and figuring out how to get the subsidies — that's still a big, complicated piece of business. And when you're doing it nationwide, relatively fast, and you've got half of Congress who is determined to try to block implementation and not adequately funding implementation, and then you've got a number of members of — or governors — Republican governors — who know that it's bad politics for them to try to implement this effectively, and some even who have decided to implement it and then their Republican-controlled state legislatures say, don't implement, and won't pass enabling legislation — when you have that kind of situation, that makes it harder. But having said all that, we've got a great team in place. We are pushing very hard to make sure that we're hitting all the deadlines and the benchmarks."

John Mccain's terrible Health Care "plan" vs. Obama
Lost in the economic crisis, the lousy horserace numbers for McCain, and the personal attacks of the McCain camp is the ongoing health care crisis in the United States. With our current system, there remain 47 million without care and millions more who are underinsured. Cost issues exist alongside inequalities of care access. And now, with unemployment rising, the issue is becoming more acute. Paul Krugman: Conservative Republicans still hate Medicare, and would kill it if they could — in fact, they tried to gut it during the Clinton years (thats what the 1995 shutdown of the government was all about). But so far they havent been able to pull that off. So John McCain wants to destroy the health insurance of nonelderly Americans instead. But but Not good. Obama's idea is different. Today, he signed on to the Health Care for America Now principles, which do not endorse specific legislation, but are compatible with single payer and other approaches. From a press release: Today, Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) signed the Health Care for America Now statement declaring that he is on the side of quality, affordable health care for all and opposed to leaving Americans on their own with unregulated health insurance. There's still plenty of room to argue about the best way to get there, but with a recession looming and people in danger of losing their jobs, this is not an issue that can be ignored any more. Expect it to be brought up in the town hall debate tomorrow - unlike the phoney stuff being brought up by McCain's campaign and his increasingly shrill VP candidate, who caters only to the shrinking Republican base, this is an issue that all Americans actually care about. "Health Care for America Now's goal this year is to get the next President and a majority of Congress committed to the principles of quality, affordable health care for all and opposed to policies that would tax our benefits at work and leave us on our own with the unregulated, bureaucratic private insurance industry," said Richard Kirsch, National Campaign Manager, Health Care for America Now. "With Senator Obama's signature, we are taking a major step towards getting the next President and Congress to make comprehensive health care reform a priority in 2009." John McCain's plan is anything but acceptable. Since it's all about saving money and nothing else, he proposes, according to the WSJ: McCain Plans Federal Health Cuts...Medicare, Medicaid Spending Would Be Reduced to Offset Proposed Tax Credit Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Sen. McCain's senior policy adviser, said Sunday that the campaign has always planned to fund the tax credits, in part, with savings from Medicare and Medicaid. Those government health-care programs serve seniors, poor families and the disabled. Medicare spending for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30 is estimated at $457.5 billion. http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/10/6/124346/441/758/621648 Those of us who analyze health policy and trends for a living have struggled to follow John McCain's health plan through its many seemingly-improvised changes. First he was taxing health benefits through both payroll and income tax. Then he said he only intended to apply income tax, which meant that his plan would create even larger deficits. Now he says there won't be deficits, because he's going to make up the cost of those tax credits by slashing Medicare and Medicaid. When a candidate suddenly, almost whimsically changes the way he proposes to handle $1.3 trillion - which is the amount of money his plan puts in play over the next ten years - it's time to get nervous. We already knew the McCain plan was going to cost most Americans money (in at least three different ways.) Now we know it could jeopardize their medical care when they get older, too. The end result of this off-the-cuff planning could change the way Americans receive, or don't receive, medical care in this country...at least three kinds of health "tax increases" (more accurately described as increased personal cost) under the McCain plan: a "slow bleed" for people who retain coverage as the tax credit falls behind inflation, a $,7000-plus spike for people who lose their coverage immediately, and an increase in out-of-pocket costs (and denials, etc.) for people who still have insurance. What do we get in return? According to that neutral study, three million uninsured would gain coverage - briefly. After five years the number of uncovered would go up. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rj-eskow/mccains-erratic-health-st_b_132242.html

Obama Hides Senior Citizen Penalty in Health Care Plan The Inconvenience of Truth prt 3
The Inconvenience of Truth Part 3 http://www.dncreform.com http://www.dncreform.blogspot.com Barack Obama, has touted his health care plan. He has repeatedly told American's how much better off we will be under his healthcare plan. As with so many things about Barack Obama it is necessary to get into the nit and grit of it to find the real truth. Barack Obama and his campaign are very good at hiding the truth beneath many layers of fluff. This ugly truth hurts every single senior citizen who has supplemental Medicare. That means it will hurt the majority of Americans because we will all be Senior Citizens someday. Barack Obama will still be a millionair so what will he care? His grandmother is a retired bank VICE PRESIDENT with a millionair grandson. What does it matter to him, what does it matter to his family? This is part 3 of a series titled The Inconvenience of Truth. Part 3 focuses on ONE of the hidden secrets of Barack Obama's health care plan and the genuine effects his plan will have on real middle class Americans. What the main stream media and Barack Obama along with his campaign are missing, besides all the hidden secrets, is that John McCain is actually stronger on the economy than Barack Obama. John McCain would actually have a much more positive economic effect for Americans. The main stream media refuses to look at the pork promise, veto any bill with ANY pork. That is money that would easily help pay down our deficit. Stop all the waste!!! Unfortunately Barack Obama appears to be hiding the truth once again. The Inconvenience of Truth is a series of TRUTHS, real, unpleasant, ugly TRUTHS that Americans are being denied. Strictly for the purpose of selling America not only a global president but a veto proof legislative majority. America if this happens hold on Barack Obama will be the either the next Hitler or Hugo Chavez or worse. Barack Obama is nothing but an ego maniac, inexperienced, Marxist, ladder climbing, lying, FRAUD, WITH HIS OWN TELEVISION STATION. Part 4 of The Inconvenience of Truth COMING SOON!!!!
