Shameless NYT Defense of Obamacare

by Stephen Lendman

Obamacare rips off most Americans.

Obamacare is a healthcare rationing scheme. It enriches insurers, drug companies and large hospital chains.

Universal, single-payer coverage alone works. Obama and complicit Democrats spurned it. 

They prioritize taxing more, rationing care, placing profits above human need, and forcing ordinary people to bear a greater burden than previously.

Not according to NYT editors. On March 23, they headlined " Report on Health Care Reform ," saying:

Obama's Affordable Care Act delivered "considerable benefits (to) millions of people"."

It "thr(ew) a lifeline to people at high risk of losing insurance or being uninsured, including young adults and people with chronic health problems, and it has made a start toward reforming the costly, dysfunctional American health care system."

Fact check

Obamacare rips off most Americans. Wellpoint, Inc. wrote it. It's America's largest managed healthcare company. It benefits from provisions it included. So do other healthcare giants.

Higher costs are assured. Providers charge what they wish. Doing so deprives millions of vitally needed care. It's unaffordable.

On March 22, the Wall Street Journal headlined "Health Insurers Warn on Premiums." 

They said " premiums for many individuals and small businesses could increase sharply next year because of the health-care overhaul law, with the nation's biggest firm projecting that rates could more than double for some consumers buying their own plans."

Obama promised Americans affordable care. Insurance premiums would be lower, he said. Reality proves otherwise.
