ObamaCare: Thoughts From an Average American on His 55th Birthday

obamadoctorYesterday afternoon, I left work early to go to the Doctor’s Office. It was a scheduled visit, as I have to have my blood tested every 6 months, due to an Asthma Medicine I have been on since 1982. I have to have blood drawn to make sure that the medicine has not turned toxic in my system.

However, that was just part of the story. You see, I turn 55 years old today.  And, over the Thanksgiving Holiday, my left arm has been hurting, along with my chest a little bit, and I have experienced a buzzing in my face, like you get when you a top a hill, doing 45 in a 35 mph zone, and see a police car waiting there.

This situation brought back some unpleasant memories for me.  A couple of years ago, I had to undergo a Cardiac Cath. My heart rate was racing, and  an MRI and Stress Test did not reveal what was going on. Luckily, the Cath did not show any blockages. It turned out that the Blood Pressure Medicine I was on was making my heart race. The Cardiac Doctor put me on a different medicine, and I have been fine ever since.

In addition to my own history, my family has a history of heart disease. I lost my Daddy to a massive heart attack at the age of 79. Plus, I lost his brother, my uncle, at the age I am now, from a massive heart attack and his daughter, my cousin, had to have two stents put in, when she was 54.

So, to say I was concerned would be an understatement. 

Imagine my relief when, upon examination yesterday, it turned out that the cause of my dizziness and buzzing face was a Sinus Infection and fluid on each ear. My heart is strong and my blood pressure is great…126/80. And, my arm was hurting after wrestling repeatedly with a reclining couch, whose springs on my side, keep popping out of their sleeves.

So, a few days of some Zyrtec and Cipro, and I will be fine.

As I paid my $30 co-pay and left the Doctor’s Office, I got to thinking…will I even have my Company Health Insurance Plan a year from now?

According to the experts, the answer may well be NO!

80 million Americans are predicted to lose their Company Health Insurance Plans because of ObamaCare.

Let me repeat that number slowly, for any Liberals who may be reading this…8-0 m-i-l-l-i-o-n A-m-e-r-i-c-a-n-s.

And then, even if you have the money to afford Obamacare, and actually enter all of your personal information into the database at healthcare.gov, your entire life could be ruined anyway.

Last night, CNBC reported that

It could take a year to secure the risk of “high exposures” of personal information on the federal Obamacare online exchange, a cybersecurity expert told CNBC on Monday.

“When you develop a website, you develop it with security in mind. And it doesn’t appear to have happened this time,” said David Kennedy, a so-called “white hat” hacker who tests online security by breaching websites. He testified on Capitol Hill about the flaws of HealthCare.gov last week.

“It’s really hard to go back and fix the security around it because security wasn’t built into it,” said Kennedy, chief executive of TrustedSec. “We’re talking multiple months to over a year to at least address some of the critical-to-high exposures on the website itself.”

According to the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversaw the implementation of the website, the components used to build the site are compliant with standards set by Federal security authorities.

“The privacy and security of consumers’ personal information are a top priority for us. Security testing happens on an ongoing basis using industry best practices to appropriately safeguard consumers’ personal information,” said the spokesperson.

Another online security expert—who spoke at last week’s House hearing and then on CNBC—said the federal Obamacare website needs to be shut down and rebuilt from scratch. Morgan Wright, CEO of Crowd Sourced Investigations said: “There’s not a plan to fix this that meets the sniff test of being reasonable.”

Last month, a Sept. 27 government memorandum surfaced in which two HHS officials said the security of the site had not been properly tested before it opened, creating “a high risk.”

HHS had explained then that steps were taken to ease security concerns after the memo was written, and that consumer information was secure. Technicians fixed a security bug in the password reset function in late October, the agency said.

The harsh reality of my future existence being controlled by a Federal Government, who cannot even properly construct a stinkin’ website, makes me glad I place my faith in God and not in a President.

Now, see if you can follow this:

I have actually been told by Liberals and “Fiscal Conservatives” (but, I repeat myself) that I am “selfish” in my concern that, as a lifelong severe asthmatic, I will not have an affordable, life-saving, health insurance plan available to me in 2014, after ObamaCare.

According to projections, which the Obama Administration itself issued back in July 2010, officials knew the devastating impact of ObamaCare three years ago.

According to the Federal Register, its mid-range estimate was that by the end of 2014, 76 percent of small group plans would be cancelled, along with 55 percent of large employer plans.

The reason?

Current plans don’t meet the requirements of ObamaCare, which dictate that each plan must cover a list of essential benefits, whether people want them or not.

“Essential benefits” like Free Birth Control and Maternity Care.

Excuse me, Soooper-Geniuses…but, after a certain age, those “benefits” are not longer “essential”.

I am alive today, thanks to the American Healthcare System that your “messiah” and the rest of you Liberal idiots, on both sides of the political aisle, are trying to turn into a money-making arm of the Federal Government, not out of any altruism, but out of an unbridled lust for control of Americans’ lives from cradle to grave.

Take your rapidly-tanking “Affordable Care Act”, along with your over-sized and under-stuffed craniums, do something anatomically impossible…and disappear.

Average Americans, like myself, and the land that we love, will be a lot better off.

Until He Comes,

KJ
