Could it be that the whole concept of ObamaCare is to create a 2-tier system?

One for the rich and a micro-manageable consolidated controllable system for everybody else?

What we've seen so far with Obama.Care is suspiciously obvious.

People getting clipped and cancelled.

People getting sucked into high deductible black holes.

People getting collectively herded into various doctor/hospital networks.

The author of this article seems to think so and has some good evidence.

The fears of the IPAB (aka death panel) is mentioned.

With the unveiling of the Affordable Care Act's website, the public experienced a painful reminder of the consequences of the government's new authority over health care. While millions signed up for insurance, millions of others abruptly lost their existing coverage and access to their doctors because that coverage didn't fit new ObamaCare definitions.

The health-care law was generated by an administration promoting government as the solution to inequality, yet the greatest irony of ObamaCare is what will undoubtedly follow as a long-term, unintended consequence of the law: a decidedly unequal, two-tiered health system. One will be for the poor and middle class, and a separate system will be for those with the money or power to circumvent ObamaCare.

With the Affordable Care Act, the government has dramatically expanded its authority as final arbiter over health insurance and consequently over access to medical care. After the law's Medicaid expansion and with the population aging into Medicare eligibility, the 107 million under Medicaid or Medicare in 2013 will skyrocket to 135 million five years later, growing far faster than the ranks of the privately insured.

The Coming Two-Tier Health System

Interesting theory indeed.

As I just wrote in another good thread, Obarrycare is a two-pronged attack on the american people.

Not only does it serve the wealth redistribution scheme of the globalists, it also serves to further the depopulation plan.

It's a lose-lose situation for we the people. Signing on to this ticking timebomb means steadily hemorrhaging an absurd amount of money for incredibly low-quality insurance. But the bomb doesn't really explode until the individual has a serious health condition for which they can't afford the even more insane deductibles.

The ignorant masses of the country are in for a serious shock when they realize they've been paying all their lives into a system that won't even cover their treatment without multi-thousands in out of pocket costs. And the really unlucky among them are going to wake up and realize they've been paying all their lives to get shunted off to death panels when they get too costly.

This is what happens when we prioritize money over humanity. Money isn't the root of all evil, but it's sure created some monsters.

I say we should all take whatever money we're shoving into the pockets of government and insurance companies and just use it line our coffins. Because while we can't take it with us, we shouldn't let this corrupt government have it, either.

Next Obama will "solve" homelessness by mandating that everyone buys a home and they'll get fined if they don't.

I have Blue Shield, as a benefit negotiated for me as part of my Union contract.

Premiums are quite reasonable, co-pays are virtually chump-change.

And my level of access and care is superb. As an example, a year ago I was diagnosed with a serious condition which required major surgery. I was referred to a specialist, got an appointment within that same week, and within less than a week of my appointment with the specialist, I was in surgery at the hands of one of the top three surgeons in the country for what I needed.

Co-pay cost: $25.00US

And follow up care has been great. I doubt that there are Formula racing teams with as expert "pit crews" as I have in the medical team that assembled to treat and support me.

If you will not organize to win the benefits you and your family need from your employers, or you will not make the necessary arrangements to provide for those needs on your own, why would you expect ME, and the rest of the taxpaying public, to provide those needs for you and yours out of MY/Our pockets by forcing my/our premiums higher to cover your uninsured medical costs?
