Obamacare and Pre-existing Conditions

You may want to check your premise. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) provides for a rationing board comprised of many bureaucrats and ONE DOCTOR. This rationing board decides which age groups and disabilities are effectively covered. Consequently, there are many "pre-existing" conditions that ultimately will not be covered under Obamacare. Moreover, lower payouts to doctors will continue to drive more doctors out, leading to less doctors per patient, more nurse practitioners, longer lines, and huge wait-times for many procedures. And costs? A simple lesson in economics will teach you that less competition leads to higher prices. And the two-year nominal fine offered to those who decide not to purchas coverage will also effectively drive most providers out of business.

So pre-existing conditions, access, and costs will all be negatives for the "Affordable Care Act". And in the process, the federal government will have the ability to charge you a tax of 3.8% on the sale of your house in spite of the fact that it has nothing to do with healthcare. They will also have the right to monitor your bank account along with a laundry list of other 4th amendment concerns. This is only a small portion of the concerns provided by this 2,700 page bill.
