Default AMAC Chief Dan Weber Says the Elderly are Under Siege Because of Obamacare

Quote:
The Washington Times published an opinion article written by Weber recently in which he brought attention to one of the most “reprehensible” provisions of the Affordable Care Act—the $22 billion reduction in home health care services. The cut will be phased in over four years starting this year, but it has “perilous” implications for health care delivery and for the economy, Weber explained.

It does “irreparable damage to recipients of Medicare’s home health care services, those who are aged, homebound and sicker than the average Medicare population. Indeed, nearly two-thirds of Medicare home health care users live at or below the federal poverty level, meaning they are the most economically compromised of America’s precious senior citizens,” Weber wrote.

The article pointed out that the decrease in funding for this much-needed benefit has far reaching effects. “It will hit the small businesses that provide home health care nationwide, and is already doing so. More than 90 percent of those providing home health care are small businesses. According to the U.S. Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, 40 percent of these companies will be operating ‘at a loss’ — that is, they will likely fold or end up in bankruptcy — by 2017 as a result of the cut.”

Weber said that he is angered by the “ill-founded excuses” made by what he called “liberal elitist surrogates” like Senator Reid for the dismal failure of Obamacare

My husband is not under siege. Neither is my neighbor. None of my relatives. Maybe these folks writing these sh*t articles should get better info.

Right. It isn't happening because you don't have direct knowledge of it. You are beyond help sw. When you get to the point that you think the universe revolves around yourself, it's useless to bother.

I do sw. I just don't have the audacity to pretend if it isn't affecting the small group of people I know, it can't possibly be happening.

Many people are being hurt by Obamacare. To cavalierly dismiss it as no big deal shows a complete lack of understanding on your part. Reid and yourself could do with a dose of human kindness.
