There’s lot of articles about the unAffordable Care Act, and how it is imploding under its own stupidity. This is a good one, showing what kind of train wreck we have barreling down upon us. But most of them miss the point. We as a nation were sold this crock based upon the lie that it “works” in countries like England and Canada. However, those countries have waiting lists for basic things like cancer surgery. The only reason they work at all is because people in those countries have options. They can go to a First-World country (US) and get their medical needs taken care of at any time. Any person that does this reduces the waiting list, even for refuseniks who want to “wait it out”, health be damned.

What happens when the safety valve goes away? What happens when there is no first-world refuge when you have cancer, you have money, and no place to go deal with it? If the Canucks think they have long wait times now, just wait until they can’t head down South for medical tourism. What we are watching now may be the demise of socialized health care in the western world, collapsing under its own unsustainable weight. We may be watching the first stages of King Barky being impaled upon his own Cloward-Piven sword. I’d laugh, but it’s real people suffering under the weight of his incompetence. It’s going to be the epic failure of the millennium.

Check out the story about the doctors office who was on hold for 2 hours and never got approval. There will be hell to pay for the doctor and his office staff. Not for doing the surgery but for disrespecting and exposing quagmire’s star legislation.

Exactly. Like I’ve said many times, when this country goes to hell, I’ve nowhere else to go. Where can I go? Where is there a place that we can have the supposed rights and freedoms we are supposed to have here without extra large bank accounts to accomplish our goals? The destruction of the USA has been ongoing for a long time, we are just going on cruise control right now at high speeds.

America, I’m afraid, is doomed. Gods shining city on a hill is growing very dim due to revisionist teaching of our history, an amoral lifestyle fostered by progressives on TV and now in our schools, along with removing God from the very fabric of our communities and education. The worlds greatest, ever, super power that has held the world in balance since WWII is being destroyed from within by a progressive agenda fueled by liberal media. A growing socialist government is brushing aside our Constitutional rights and using over half our resources toward establishing elitist power over the people. The progressives have destroyed our ability to function as a republic. Government healthcare is just one front, although a big ****ing deal as stated by our progressive and infamous VP.

It gets worse. Satan is running out of time. I wont go into much detail here, but I’m beginning to believe America will be destroyed according to Biblical prophecy. A book, “The End of America”, has opened up much insight about the Biblical prophecies of the Mystery Babylon or the daughter of Babylon.
Below is a link to the verses which are listed and explained on the books website for those interested.
http://www.endofamericabook.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=3&Itemid=9

During years of reading and study of the Bible, I have had the feeling that many of these verses referred to America before reading the book “The End of America.” Just as God warned the Christians to flee Jerusalem just before being destroyed by the Roman army in A.D. 70, I believe He is opening up understanding of Scripture to give warning to Christians in America.
I will be visiting here even less due to dedicating more time to the study of Gods Word. “Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105
I’m going to be sure that leaving America is the right path, although I’m 60 years old and may just decide to go out with the country I love, well at least it’s still lovable here in the Bible Belt. One thing for sure, whatever I decide, I will be led by the Holy Spirit.

I’ve enjoyed IHTM these past years and appreciate you tolerating my occasional preaching.

The more amoral and depraved the Roman Empire became, the quicker it broke apart. Live and learn.

Another can of worms opened today(via Hot Air): the exchange is not able to process changes, such as birth or moving to a new address, so BO has apparently frozen Time as of 1/1/14. Who suspected he had such a power?

I personally know a family of Canadians who relocated to Texas because they needed some major surgery and the Canadian health care system wouldn’t do it. It only took a few weeks to get it, but they liked the country so much they stayed.

Rose, our town has the worst drivers in the state! i believe the undocumented, hum…err… un licensed ones drive the best out of fear for getting pulled over! The worst are the mexican nationals in their Suburbans that invade the city before, during and after the major holidays

Yes To say our traffic laws are different than in Mexico is like saying <ars has a slightly different climate than Earth. Most of them can't drive to save their lives (litteraly) and don't have required insurance, so they just go back to Mexico if involved in a major crash. Whne I was still in nursing school, I was awakened one morning by a loud thump outside my home. Some one had hit my parked car. He didn't have a license or insurance, was driving a borrowed car owned by someone else with no license and no insurance. Welcome to Texas.

An illegal alien did that to my parked truck in California. Did three thousand dollars damage, nearly killed my ex-fiance who was standing next to the truck. They wrote him a ticket.

The guy that creamed my truck offered me two thousand dollars if I wouldn’t call the cops. I told him I didn’t know if that would cover the damage, he upped it to $2,500, which he would bring to the same location the next day. Promise.

I called the cops.

Back in 2010 my Dad was dxd with Leukemia and moved to SA from the Dallas area so we could help with his treatments. I spent hundreds of hours in hospitals and met a lot of people getting treated for various cancers. Probably half of the ones at the place he was getting treated were from Mexico, Canada and Central America. Will be interesting to see how that changes.

Both. The University system, CTRC, for the most of it.

CTRC is a good group. As long as you want to keep fighting. For those who have decided to let nature take its course, they have a problem. The Docs at CTRC don’t want to “lose” to cancer. University is where I have my transplant care. They are really good at renal stuff.

I have an Aussie friend who ended up paying cash for her knee surgery because she knew she would be wating many months otherwise. She tells me this is common practice. I guess it is going to become common here, since most of the docs and few hospitals are going to be in the network of the exchanges. I was reading an article yesterday where people went to the ER but had no proof they had insurance under the exchanges yet. The hospital had no choice but to bill them for the services. Even if they had had proof…their deductibles would have been so high they would be paying out of pocket anyway. People are going to start dying because of this….having insurance that no doctors accept or that doesn’t start paying for services until you’ve paid like 6500 bucks, will cause folks to not get treatment or not seek treatment.

She also claims that no one from National Socialized medicine countries come here for surgery thy can’t get in a timely fashion at home. But then when has she ever been right about anything?

the whole purpose of this ridiculous piece of garbage is the continuation of the transference of wealth, under the Marxist theory to collapse a democratic society, provide services you can’t pay for until it passes equilibrium and implodes, obama wants his way to hasten our collapse, the community organizers and the rest of his pack of czars and purchased representatives that passed this should be in jail “certainly not in congress” passing more laws, taxes, penalties, and creative ways of striping us from our freedom.
