Obamacare’s Part-Time NationThe Federalist ^ | September 9, 2014 | John Daniel DavidsonPosted on 9/9/2014, 12:13:02 PM by right-wing agnostic

As summer slides into autumn, the Affordable Care Act doesn’t seem to be weighing as heavily on our elected leaders as it was this time last year, before the botched rollout of the health insurance exchanges and the battles over Medicaid expansion in state legislatures. Even Congressional Republicans appear to be losing interest.

This was not in the fine print of the Affordable Care Act (that no one read), and there was nothing in it that changed the existing law from 1993.

The ACA however, did expand the number of people who are eligible for Medicaid, so now there are more people from the ages of 55 to 65 whose estates could be on the hook for Medicaid expenses after the beneficiary dies.

ObamaCare’s Attack on the Elderly

January 20, 2014 2 comments

By Arnold Ahlert Monday, January 20, 2014

In October of 2012, the Daily Mail exposed the highly disturbing realities of the Liverpool

Pathway (LCP), the series of guidelines for treating terminally ill patients developed for Britain’s National Health Service (NHS).

The most egregious of those realities concerned cash incentives paid to hospitals to ensure a certain percentage of hospital patients would be put on the regime. As healthcare expert Besty McCaughey reveals, a similar

horror show is occurring on this side of the Atlantic, courtesy of ObamaCare. Beginning the the same time the LCP scandal was being exposed, the Obama administration began awarding hospitals bonus points for spending the least amount of money on elderly patients. Even worse, the idea was sold to the elderly as a good thing during the 2012 presidential election campaign.

The Affordable Care Act was designed to dramatically increase the number of Americans who qualify for Medicaid. In fact, the ACA will literally FORCE many low income seniors onto Medicaid rolls as subsidies for regular ObamaCare plans are NOT available to those over 55 years of age who earn less than 138% of the federal poverty level ($15,856 for individuals; $21,403 for married couples). And without such subsidies, ObamaCare plans are generally far too expensive for older, low-income individuals or couples. (1)

 

Why should any of this matter to those getting “free” healthcare via Medicaid?

 

Because: “If you’re 55 or over, Medicaid can come back after you’re dead and bill your estate for ordinary health-care expenses.” (2)

 

The government has long been permitted to………….

 

EXCERPT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who remains as determined as ever to substitute Obama administration talking points for the truth, gave it her best effort in yesterday’s session before a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee. It was an underwhelming performance at best. As key dates approach and more facts about the government overhaul of the health care system emerge, it is becoming apparent that the ObamaCare scheme is headed for structural disaster — and will take tens of millions of Americans with it.
