First, a congressional candidates, Elan Carr, told me that an insured resident had a Covered California plan, which then fell through.
Doctors rejected it, and the patient lost the plan.
Covered California certainly did not cover him.
Today, I spoke with a retired dentist. For fifty years, he worked with all kinds of patients.
For the last thirty years of his practice, he worked with Medi-Cal to treat patients who needed fillings. He also screened patients for who would receive Medi-Cal payments.
In the last three years, however, as Medi-Cal was cut, his practice became unprofitable and he quit.
What's the point of pushing legislation to expand access and grant "affordable care" when the program makes government subsidies harder to find and pushes medical professionals out of their practice in the first place?
No matter kind of spin Washington bureaucrats and national Democrats play to make Obamacare worthwhile, their arguments are not worth the while they spend justifying the government overreach which has done more harm than good.
The Hippocratic Oath in Medicine begings with "First, do no harm."\
The Obamacare Hypocritic Oath has many clauses:
If you like your plan, you can keep it.
If you like your doctor, you can keep him.
It will not cost you one penny more.
It will not raise taxes.
It will increase access.
It will increase affordability.
