Watch Nurses Destroy Lies About Obamacare in Under 2 Minutes

Yes, the Affordable Care Act (AKA “Obamacare”) is working, but you won’t hear that from right wing talk radio fascists, or Fox News. Tea Party radicals in congress have voted over 35 times to repeal the healthcare law, which House Speaker John Boehner called “the law of the land.”

Watch and share this great video to educate those with an open mind, and enrage TEApublican idiots.

  1. Yeah! Just ask THESE nurses! (You can find them on the unemployment line.)

    Oh, wait, I forgot – you weren’t interested in the truth, were you? Just spewing more of Odumbo’s rhetoric because you really don’t understand anything about health care finance?

    • From your link: “The federal health law assumed these funding reductions would be countered by states expanding their Medicaid programs. An expansion is optional for states, and Missouri doesn’t appear headed in that direction.”

      Missouri has rejected federal “Medicare expansion” which would have made up for this hospital’s revenue losses. The blame for the layoff is on the Governor of that fine state.

      • Then maybe the problem was with the A$$umption that somebody else would pick up the tab for this disaster. Especially since our ‘constitutional law professor’ apparently was wrong that they had to.

        BTW, the actual quote was “expanding their MediCAID programs”. I hate to point out that you’re just another Obamatron that doesn’t understand the first thing about healthcare financing (like for instance the difference between Medicaid and Medicare), but the states don’t have anything to do with MediCARE rates, which were slashed to keep this train wreck supposedly ‘revenue neutral’. But thanks for playing just the same.

        • Medicaid vs. Medicare was a typo Skipper. Believe me I know the difference,

          Maybe YOU should read up on the ACA. As part of the ACA the federal government will be stripping hospital of the billions of dollars annually that they have provided directly to hospitals to help cover medical care for the uninsured and underinsured. That billions in savings is one of the funding sources for the ACA. You didn’t know that?

          IF a state opts OUT of Medicaid expansion hospitals in that state STILL lose this funding. That’s a significant revenue source. You didn’t know this?

          And by the way, our “constitutional law professor” didn’t write the bill. It was written in various Congressional committees. You didn’t know that?

  2. Obamacare was just a Heritage Foundation brainchild virtually identical to Romneycare in Mass. that was also cooked up by the Heritage Foundation. Conservatives have strayed away from the good Conservatism of Eisenhower and Theodore Roosevelt, but if you cannot understand that there are VAST differences between being a Progressive/Liberal/Moderate and being a Democrat, then you are not much smarter than the Rednecks you so despise.

  3. Ralph and Harley both have a lot of bad to say about Obamacare, but do they have an alternative answer to the problem? Insurance companies are the true “death panels.” I have had a lot of experience as a patient, as a business owner, as the spouse of a terminal patient in the VA health system, and as an employee of United Health Care. Anyone who says that the US was not in need of healthcare reform has their head up their you-know-what.

  4. One in 8 small businesses will drop their healthcare because they are being ripped off. They will just select plans that are not a rip off. Statistics can be manipulated. Its funny how that works. I think ACA will be adjusted over time to correct the problems that such a complicated law takes to put into effect.

    • The plan is not perfect, but it’s better than what we currently have.

      It will undergo changes over time, as new problems arise and we learn what works.

  5. Harleyone…….you have been spending way to much time watching Hannity…and other tea publican pundits…..

  6. Why do these ‘discussions’ always turn into Blame Games or It was Our Idea Games. Do What Is Best for Our Citizens in the USA. Get rid of the who gets credit for thisorthat and just do what’s right for our citizens! If something is working well – keep it, if not chuck it. Fuk the rest of the Bullsh*t.

  7. Correct me if I’m wrong…but the Affordable Care Act is NOT Obamacare!! I believe the ACA has many great, functioning things, and according to what I’ve read is a document of approximately 41 pages. Last I heard, Obamacare was a document that stood over 5 foot tall, and we have not felt the full effects of it yet. Hum, don’t think I’ll be able to read thru Obamacare document before I’m slammed with it’s regulations.

    • AATTP

      The Affordable Care Act and “Obamacare” are the same thing.

    • Both are the same. The term “obamacare” and the lies surrounding it was created by the republicans to roil up their base. It is about 1500 pages (double spaced), some of which is “boilerplate” info added to most new laws. There’s nothing complicated about the document.

      If you’re a business owner it won’t affect you unless you have more than 50 employees. If you choose to insure your employees “obamacare” will provide you with very nice cash incentives. :)

    • Don’t believe everything you hear on Faux News. In fact, don’t believe any of it.

  8. I pay 72.00 a week for insurance x4 weeks and that’s only 40% my boss pays 60% bluscross that s**t is to high!!!! So Obamacare will decrease that? I’ll let you know if it does

  9. Way to finish it out harleyone!

  10. It is completely restrictive, makes money for insurers and and medical conglomerates, and takes all freedom out of a patients hands. Do you libs forget that this was blueprinted by Romney as Gov of Mass. If it was called Romneycare (which it is) you’d all be as outraged as people who are impartial and not Obamabots or GOPers.

    • OK. I’ll play. What “freedom” is taken away when an individual purchases a private health care plan?

    • Obama wanted National Health Care with no middleman insurance companies like the rest of the Industrial world, but the Republicans would not have it.

    • The ACA does not take all freedom out of the hands of patients. In fact, the insurance exchanges will work much like insurance works now. Pick your insurance co., pick your plan, pick your doctor (if he’s in your plan’s network), pick your deductible, etc. If anything, It is far less restrictive, especially to people with pre-existing health concerns, than current health insurance plans. And, best of all, it makes health insurance more affordable to those who can’t afford it. All of the above information came from the official ACA web site .

      • You may have even more freedom. Some employers offer as few as two choices of company, and some offer only one.

  11. You know what sucks? I watched this video and what I came away with was the realization that people who MISUNDERSTAND PPACA the MOST will probably think less about health care and more about all the “ethnic looking” people explaining it.

    • Haters gonna hate. I didn’t even take that into account until reading your comment. (Probably would have noticed more if it wasn’t diverse group.)

  12. Brandon Brandonious III

    I believe the people who stand to profit the most from the legislation must be telling the truth. Who needs critical thinking and rational thought when there’s emotional responses to be had.

  13. Brandon Brandonious III

    Well I’m convinced. Apparently those awesome nurses had enough time to read the multi-thousand page bill and understood all of the legal terms in order to come to their conclusions.

  14. I want @senmikelee and @jasoninthhouse to see this as they are my imaginary congressmen. Our insurance company tried Gov. Herberts “avenue H” a Utah replacement for federal coverage. After 4 months of irresponsible coverage the employer dumped avenue h. Due to mismanagement I had to go without cholesterol meds much of the 4 months because of cost. Avenue H did however find money to call me to see if I was getting blood tests (high cholesterol is dangerous to people that have had a heart attack). Thankfully the employer cares for us more than the GOP does.
    If you get tied up with Herberts A.H. I hope you are alright until you can get away from them. We wish you luck, you’re going to need it.

  15. Well, you may want to read this. Of course it’s probably too conservative for you, so you’ll just discount the source.

    I did notice though that you failed to comment on the subject of the thread, and instead opted to go off track. You’re nonresponse says a lot while saying nothing. Good job Bob.

    • I discount the source because it’s misleading. Look you fool. The source is full of misinformation. I’ve been dealing with this for years and I have the same plan that my employer offers. I had for years before the switch and I’ve had it since. The Unions of course are fighting to ensure that businesses do not cancel the insurance of their employees and that it the topic that your cited source is contorting. The source is flat out manipulative and misleading. We keep our healthcare plans and the Unions are fighting to make sure that the Management doesn’t cut insurance coverage as many have threatened to do. Why wouldn’t the Unions fight for this? This is what Unions do. Protect their employees. Enjoy being wrong because you seem to relish in it. Talk loudly without knowing what you are talking about. The article is shameful and you should be ashamed for citing it.

  16. Oh got it. So if I put scrubs on a person, and put a stethoscope around their neck, that makes them a nurse.

    Well here it is from a nursing student that has gotten the opinion of nurses FROM nurses. Obamacare is not well received in the healthcare community, and many doctors are considering leaving their practice because of Obamacare. Even democrats are realizing what a boondoggle Obamacare is. In fact it’s so much so, that politicians are exempting themselves from Obamacare. Jeez, do some research will ya.

    • AATTP

      Oh, got it. “Research” in your mind equals anecdotal evidence.

      Not one thing you said up there is backed up with facts.

    • Wrong again Ralph! I did research it when another Teapub tried to tell me that Congress is exempt and found that, in fact, they are not! This is not a single payer plan (it should be) and since Congress has coverage they are in compliance with the law.

    • Ralph… pure nonsense. Obama Care is nearly identical to the Massachusetts plan. If you have coverage you continue with the same company if you chose to, but now uninsured, unemployed, underemployed and those with pre-existing conditions (etc), now have access to affordable care and coverage. There really isn’t anything to opt out of unless you want to go uninsured, then you pay fine. But why would politicians want to do that? Are you suggesting that the politicians you reference will cancel their own insurance, go uninsured and pay a fine? Does that make any sense? My insurance did not change and I merely submit a form, proving compliance, when I file my taxes. Get it chump?

    • That would be a good idea for you, is your opinion based on a large sampling of the population or just your little world because the consensus from most of Americans is that it works and for more people. Lower income people are getting more healthcare than they could have otherwise!?

    • Care to elaborate on that, or?

    • Thanks Ralph. You are right anyone can wear a stethoscope and the low information, ideologically constipated will believe whatever tripe they spew.
      Here it is from a NURSE, that would be a degreed RN who has practiced >30 yr. The Dr’s with whom I’ve spoken ALL think AFCA will be/is a disaster.
      According to the Washington Times 30% of doctors are planning to retire, many due to the restrictions of Obamacare.
      The American Nurses Association adds that the median age of nurses is 46. More than 50% of the nursing workforce is close to retirement. As they add 30 million more souls to the healthcare system who is going to care for them.
      According to the Small Business Association 1 in 8 sm. business will drop their healthcare plan due to Obamacare. Obama administration officials admit BHO “misspoke” the IRS says the average family of 4 will pay $4,000 more/yr for healthcare.
      Anyone with half a whit of common sense should be able to comprehend that 15 presidentially appointed “experts”, the “Independent Payment Advisory Board”, in theory, can only propose changes to Medicare’s payment rates. In practice, however, the board’s proposals will take effect automatically unless Congress passes contrary legislation and the President signs it into law.
      Think about it has the Obama administration really lived up to it’s promises? Are these the types of people you really want dictating your healthcare?
