Beating Obamacare 2014: Avoid the Landmines and Protect Your Health, Income, and Freedom By Betsy McCaughey, Ph.D.
March 12, 2014 by Bob Livingston
Obamacare will destroy what is left of our socialized medicine. Obamacare will be the finale of our medical system and most likely the United States as we know it.
I think the book has a lot of good and valuable information, but I think the author misnamed the book. Americans will not beat Obamacare. It will beat America — and worse than an invasion by a foreign enemy.
Seniors should begin now investigating medical tourism. They will get far, far better treatment in a foreign country for half or less the cost in the U.S. See my article on medical tourism from January.
Betsy McCaughey states on page 81 that: “There is no question that seniors bear the biggest cost of Obamacare. But taxpayers also pay for it. There are twenty new taxes or tax hikes in the law.
“It’s ‘the largest set of tax law changes in twenty years,’” according to Inspector General J. Russell George.
“If you’re a senior or a baby boomer, expect less care than in the past.” p4.
“This new law goes after more capital gains taxes.” p5.
“In 2018, the Independent Payment Advisory Board has the power to further cut what Medicare will spend on seniors.” p11.
“Government spending on health care administration–telling doctors and patients what to do–will more than double in the next decade. You guessed it–more for bureaucracy and less health care for the people. p15.
“Doctors can expect lower pay, more paperwork and more government interference in how they treat their patients.” p17.
“Seniors pay far more than half the Obama Health Law through cuts in Medicare, and Medicare Advantage Programs.” p17.
“The law empowers the IRS to seize tax refunds as payment toward an unpaid penalty. Section 5000A of the Internal Revenue Code expressly states that you cannot be criminally prosecuted for failing to pay a penalty.” p22.
This is badly misleading because the Internal Revenue Service can prosecute civilly, lien your property, your paycheck and bank accounts.
With all due respect to the author, she omitted the cause of Obamacare. The cause is that the U.S. government is in a state of financial collapse. And all governments that are collapsing economically, socially and morally attack their own population. Obamacare is a frontal attack on U.S. citizens under the pretense of Obama healthcare or the “Affordable Health Care” law.
The U.S. is collapsing economically because it has been devaluing its currency for 100 years another system of silent theft from citizens.
Now in 2014, the devaluation of the U.S. dollar is accelerating with a Federal Reserve ruse called Quantitative Easing, or printing vast sums of new money, thus diluting all dollars in the hands of citizens in the form of savings and retirement. A foreign army could not cause more destruction upon the United States and the American people. Impoverishment of the middle class will be the final result.
Any attempt to explain any event without including currency devaluation serves to mislead. Currency devaluation is the rot of America, but few are aware of it. No nation has ever survived the devaluation (inflation) of its currency. For 95 years, currency devaluation has been creeping out of sight. Now, it is terminal!
Depreciation/devaluation of a nation’s currency leads to greed, fraud, criminal government, war and impoverishment of most of the people. Obamacare is only part of this big picture. Look out and see it now!
According to Marc Faber in his January Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, “There is coming deflationary collapse, the certainty of which is almost given.”
The cause is debasement of the U.S. dollar. The system is floating now on printing-press dollars.
