Five Key Threats Americans Are Experiencing After Five Years of Obamacare

Americans have had five years to see the effects of Obamacare. The results are not good.

Five Key Threats Americans Are Experiencing After Five Years of Obamacare
Ed. Note: Five years into the Patient Affordable Care Act, one can see how flawed it is, as if that wasn’t predicted from the start. Its repeal is the only remedy. But until that time comes, increased costs, tying physicians’ hands, lack of privacy and, most of all, the growth of big government threaten our economic freedoms, personal freedoms and a debt-free future.

It’s now been over five years since President Barack Obama signed Obamacare, or Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010. What has happened to American health care since then? According to doctors who discussed the federal program this weekend, the results are not good.

It’s become “a subtle form of corruption,” said Dr. Otis Brawley, an oncologist and chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society. We are forced to practice “an irrational form of medicine.”

“When I hear politicians talking about death panels and rationing, we need to be talking about the rational use of medicine — not rationing, but rational,” Dr. Brawley says. “But unfortunately, that’s not happening in the United States.”

Americans continue to experience negative news, both in the media and at home from their health providers, hospitals and insurance companies, practically every day regarding the ill-conceived federal health care overhaul.

“What we desperately need to do is not reform health care,” said Dr. Brawley. “We need to transform how we view health care. We need to become more appreciative of health-care prevention efforts.”

Obamacare is seen as corrupt and unfair by most doctors according to many surveys and “we’re not going to have improvements in our health-care system until the mass population demands that doctors appreciate science and demands and asks doctors to justify their recommendations and justify their decisions,” Dr. Brawley warns.

We need the skeptical, educated consumer,” added Dr. Brawley. “We need people who consume medicine to think about health care the same way they think about buying a television set at a Best Buy. We need people to stop just accepting things and start being skeptical.”

The outrage is shared not just by the average consumer or family. Doctors and nurses are seeing the everyday debacles of Obamacare.

“The perils and pitfalls of an intrusive federal health care system are almost too numerous to count,” said Twila Brase, the president and co-founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) said. “But the real disaster is the danger the federal takeover of  healthcare poses for patients, doctors, pocketbooks and health freedom.”

Brase, who has researched written, testified and educated extensively about the threats of Obamacare, lists five key areas all Americans should be concerned and take action against:

  • Lack of privacy
  • Increased costs for patients
  • Few health choices
  • The “tying of doctors’ hands
  • The end of insurance as big government grows

Brase knows that after five years of Obamacare, the mysteries we wondered about have been solved. The verdict is in. “… Obamacare is nothing to celebrate.” Brase sustains. “Instead, it’s a reminder of the disastrous effects of this ill-conceived bill that was forced on the American people. Five years is long enough. It’s time to repeal Obamacare once and for all and restore health freedom to Americans.”

The Obama Administration has used “half-truths and misleading statements disparaging physicians and our American health care system,” says San Antonio, Texas physician Dr. Kristin Story Held, and “now that we have seen what is in the law, we know it is not the right solution.”

The United Physicians and Surgeons of America (UPSA) have founded the movement “Let My Doctor Practice” to “restore the voice of the doctor to the practice of medicine.”

Physician members of UPSA say they “believe in the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship, the autonomy to practice medicine without restraint imposed by overreaching government and corporate entities, and, above all, that patient care and safety should never be compromised.”

UPSA are uniting to “restore the practice of medicine to those who actually practice medicine” and has planned a major “Summit at the Summit Conference and Interactive Webcast–A National Grand Rounds on the State of American Medicine” on July 20-26, 2015 in Keystone, Colorado.

“Doctoring just isn’t the same,” say Dr. Tedeschi, a primary-family care physician in Robbinsville, New Jersey. “The practice of medicine, its costs and medical policies, are now dictated and controlled by groups that don’t know the first thing about medicine, nor the people it serves.”

    Obamacare has destroyed the doctor/patient relationship and we need people in Congress who have the guts to do their job and not surrender to the administration. John Boehner and his ilk saw fit to pass a budget for the rest of the year rather than defund Obamacare. No help from Mitch McConnell who is Senate Majority Leader in name only.

    Obamacare has pulled $700 billion from Medicare and we have fewer people insured than before Ocare. Part D, a Bush wet dream, has become a nightmare as well. Insurance companies now try to insert themselves between the doctor/patient relationship. They seen no rationale for the medication a doctor might prescribe for a patient; only the cost. We need to get the government out of healthcare before we no longer have a healthcare system.
