The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or “Obamacare”, is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010.
It is really affordable when you live on minimum salary, in California is $ 8.75 and 90 % of the work force it is part time. A gallon of milk cost $ 4.75 Reg, $ 6.99 organic means they need 50 percent or more of one hour of work to buy one gallon of milk. I do not need to make the numbers, every one knows how is to survive on minimum salary.
If you work and your spouse work you are already pass the minimum income to get state insurance commonly known as Medical. The bad news are, that even both working at minimum salary they both don’t make enough money to pay all the bills, for this reason great majority of Americans do not have insurance, not because they do not want, but because they can not afford it. So what it is going to happen after January 1, when the insurance it is required?
Get really to roll, as January 1 2014, you can not get a job if you do not have Medical Insurance. I beat you did not know this. And get worse, beside that you do not have a job, you don’t have money to buy insurance, but you still have to pay a fine at the end of the year for not having the mandated medical insurance.
Viva Obama Care.
Now, business started giving their employees the form to fill up with their medical insurance information, because they ain’t going to pay for your insurance, they are not required to give you insurance because they don’t employ you 40 hours, which it is the requirement under the Obama Care. Example only managers in fast food restaurant are full employees and get mandatory insurance, the rest of the work force sorry guys, you are on your own.
Pretty much as owing a car, you can not register the car in your name if you do not have car insurance…same game.
As January 1, 2014 the rain fall of free money of about 200 millions American goes to Medical Insurances that start popping like weed across America, well not new Insurance Companies, only branches of the giants already in place.
And can get worse?
(g)(1) The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that:
(A) is or has been used in or on a patient;
(B) and is: (i) a class III device;
or (ii) a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.
A “class II device that is implantable?”
Then on page 1,004 it describes what the term “data” means in paragraph 1, section B: “(B) In this paragraph, the term ‘data’ refers to in formation respecting a device described in paragraph (1), including claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the Secretary.”
Thanks Obama for pushing us to a revolution.
