How I pray we don’t get so numb to the endless nightmarish stories of Obamacare that we become fatalistic and resigned to its continued existence. As an antidote to that, I submit another update.
First, Unite Here — a major union for the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry and airport industries — has issued a report concluding that Obamacare will result in wages being reduced by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours and exacerbate income inequality. The report, titled “The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse,” states: “Ironically, the Administration’s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality. … We take seriously the promise that ‘if you like your health plan, you can keep it. Period.’ UNITE HERE members like their health plans.”
Next, let’s look at some very interesting — and compelling — “hard data” from Forbes on the difficulties people will have finding doctors under this exasperating law. Forbes obtained its data from Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield “because it is regarded to offer higher quality plans in both the commercial market and on the exchanges.”
The report looks at nine states and compares the number of specialists in the various fields of practice — cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, dermatology, gastroenterology, obstetrics and gynecology — who are available in private health plans with those in the Obamacare plans in the same markets. The numbers are astounding and cannot be dismissed by cynics as anecdotal.
