Logue spoke to a gathering in Yuba City, California. He called the meeting because he believes people in California have no idea where they’re headed with Obamacare. From the magnitude of the overflow crowd, Dan Logue was right.
Shedding some light on the mysteries of Obamacare were a panel of four, including Assemblyman Logue, David Panush (California Health Benefit Exchange), Kenneth DeVore (National Federation of Independent Business), and Dr. Richard Thorpe (California Medical Association).
According to a Willows Journal account, each imparted serious issues, omissions, and concerns on Obamacare from their particular perspectives.
Assemblyman Logue spoke earlier on the hazards Obamacare poses for Californians in particular. At the town meeting, he opened with Obamacare's overarching problem. Medical insurance for all is required but medical care for all remains in doubt.
Everybody's going to have health coverage. But is everybody going to get health care?
David Panush cast doubts on the workability of the plan: “No one has done what we're about to do. We're not going to get it right the first time."
Ken DeVore warned of difficulties for the private sector: "It's going to be very tough on business—particularly small business." Nothing new here for California. The state ranks high in business unfriendly taxation, restriction, and regulation.
Dr. Thorpe found issue with 5 million people added to the rolls but fewer than ever new doctors coming on board: "You don't have to do the math too hard to figure out that they're some problems."
Many seniors are signing up now for the hip, knee, or shoulder replacements they'll need some time in the future. Say good bye to prosthetic surgeries on demand. Wait lists for such services can only grow larger and longer, if we can get them at all.
With such astute observations from those in the know, Californians might wonder why they supported such ruinous legislation in 2011.
Obamacare ought to be renamed the Affordable Healthcare If You Can Get It Act.
