    Bubba,

    Thanks for the link, great article. Anyone who cares about where our healthcare system is headed should read this, especially those who think Obamacare/single payor system is the way to go.

    The liberals like to all it "single payor". I call it SINGLE EMPLOYER system. That speaks more to the loss of individual freedoms of both doctors and patients.

    The Coming ObamaCare Shock

    By DANIEL P. KESSLER
    In recent weeks, there have been increasing expressions of concern from surprising quarters about the implementation of ObamaCare. Montana Sen. Max Baucus, a Democrat, called it a "train wreck." A Democratic colleague, West Virginia's Sen. Jay Rockefeller, described the massive Affordable Care Act as "beyond comprehension." Henry Chao, the government's chief technical officer in charge of putting in place the insurance exchanges mandated by the law, was quoted in the Congressional Quarterly as saying "I'm pretty nervous . . . Let's just make sure it's not a third-world experience."

    These individuals are worried for good reason. The unpopular health-care law's rollout is going to be rough. It will also administer several price (and other) shocks to tens of millions of Americans

    We're already sliding into Third World status; Obamacare is simply hastening the slide.

    Looks like there will be another major court battle over Obamacare.

    http://www.unitedliberty.org/article...ourt-challenge

    Since the SCOTUS ruled it a tax, all tax bills must originate in the House. Obamacare came out of the Senate.
    The Libertarian Party believes that all persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. A call for the repeal of the income tax, abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes. LP.org

    I read but I limit my fiction to mystery and thrillers. I don't try to find it in the news.
