Waxman on ObamaCare Drafts

Henry Waxman took a commanding lead in ramming down the throats of the American people an unpopular piece -- or rather, compendium -- of legislation which was neither needed nor wanted at the time.                                                                                                              

Granted, health insurance recipients are justifiably concerned about the fate of those with pre-existing conditions. The rising healthcare costs since the passage of ObamaCare, however, signal that the legislation was ill-conceived, poorly presented, and untimely drafted.

The costs of health care in this country cannot be mitigated with an expansive role of the federal government. After nearly three years, ObamaCare remains unpopular, having failed to live up to its promises offered by the president.

The country was barely lurching out of a recession, when the Obama Administration tried to pass off a  major expansion of the federal government as a viable option of lowering health care costs.

Waxman wants to retain insurance provided by employers -- yet ObamaCare would punish or push employees off their employers rolls. A growing number of insurance companies are dispensing with offering health insurance altogether because of the growth in paperwork and regulations imposed by ObamaCare.
Pre-existing conditions.

Small businesses go into a dyfunctional market -- because of government regulation!

Access to affordable coverage requires free market forces. Ever since ObamaCare was passed, the price of health insurance has surged. There is less choice for consumers.

What does Waxman have to say now regarding the signature legislation of the Obama Presidency?

If choice is important, per Waxman, then why not permit recipients to purchase health insurance policies across state lines?

Improve medicare? ObamaCare raids the Medicare program to the tune of $500 billion! Why not issue future Medicare payments in concentrated block grants, granting final disbursal authority to the states, who can oversee expenditures and prevent fraud.

Waxman and his illiberal ilk could also seek to  suspend or limit the licensure laws which create an unnecessary and immoral limiting lobby on health providers.
