Obamacare: Don’t Believe Your Lying Eyes
Who are you going to believe? Me or your lying eyes?
Groucho Marx (1895-1977)
October 22, 2012 -  When it comes to Obamacare,  don’t believe that what you see is what you get.  Believe what Obama says,  not what you see with your lying eyes.
Remember what Walter Matthau said in the 1967 film “A Guide for the Married Man.”  When his wife caught him in bed with a glamorous stranger,  his wife said, “What are you doing? Who is that woman?”
“What woman?” he calmly replied, as his glamorous bedmate dressed and left.
Matthau continued to say, “What woman?”  "What woman?"The wife  finally gives up and minutes later is asking him what he wants for dinner.
The moral here is Deny! Deny! Deny! Sooner or later, your skeptics will not believe what they saw with their lying eyes.
Don’t believe you lying eyes,
·         when you read that 55% to 67% of Americans polled say they don’t favor the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and either want it repealed or think it has been repealed already; 

·         when your health care premiums have increased by $2500 instead of going down by $2500 as promised; 
·         when well-known consulting firms and  the business community ( small businesses or corporations, or the American Chamber of Commerce,  The Federation of Independent American Businesses,  The Business Roundtable,  Investors Business Daily, and The Wall Street Journal) tell you again and again that businesses, small and large, aren’t hiring because  of the uncertainties and perceived high costs of Obamacare; 

·         when survey after survey of American physicians, who number about 1 million, indicate 6 of 10 would retire today if given the opportunity and another 6 of 10 say they are advising their children or other young people not to enter the medical profession;

·         when the Association of American Medical Colleges, and countless other prestigious organizations, tell you in print that a calamitous doctor shortage is imminent and will only relentlessly grow through 2025;

·         when the Affordable Care Act has a provision that an unelected board of government-selected “experts” , the Independent Payment Advisory Board,  will dictate what to pay physicians and what they can order; 

·         when you read that same act will cut $716 billion out of Medicare to fund Obamacare and  that the new law has 121 provisions that  tax on providers and consumers, including the middle class,  by $500 billion; 

·         when the health law recommends that care be ideally provided through government-controlled “accountable care organizations” designed to base care on collective “population health” studies and outcomes,  rather than on what individual patients and their doctors choose.
Don’t believe your lying eyes ob what you see and read and experience.    Believe what ihas been promised and has yet to be adequately explained and communicated.
Tweet:  When it comes to Obamacare,   don’t believe what you see in the present on the ground but what is promised and  yet to come in the future.
