I (TLB) have stated over and over again that Obamacare is the biggest lie and threat America faces so far in this century including but not limited to terrorism, warfare, and political tyranny (although it contains a very large amount of political tyranny)! I have written several times warning that it will facilitate the total collapse of the middle class (intentionally) and the most advanced medical healthcare system on this planet which at one point was the envy of the world.
Excerpts from past TLB articles:
“Obamacare is one of the most unpopular programs ever presented to the American public and was only instituted through a massive campaign of lies, deceit and fraud, most of which is readily apparent as implementation proceeds. Yet it will eventually lock a vast majority of us into a dependency on our government for even the most basic healthcare needs and intrude into our personal lives on a unheard of scale. This has the ultimate result of destroying what used to be the most advanced and effective medical system on this planet.”
“This program is by far the most destructive influencing factor today on the evaporating middle class as many employers stop hiring full time employees and shift full time positions to part time, or move their companies off shore to avoid the massive cost they will realize with the full implementation of this highly invasive program. This is a major player in the free fall of the average household income, forcing many more Americans to dependency on government entitlement programs such as welfare and food stamps.”
So now that the door is opening on Obamacare, look back at these predictions and accusations I have made and judge my accuracy.
And there is more, but this should suffice to make the point that ALL the doom-saying I and The Liberty Beacon project have been spouting are becoming reality at neck-breaking speed!
And now another straw is loaded onto this burdened down camel’s back … and maybe the one that will break that back! Attached you will find an article from ‘American Thinker’ explaining how MANY doctors are deserting their practice in favor of retirement, or just flat out refusing to treat patients who fall under the Obamacare disaster, and many more are threatening to follow.
Read how these doctors ridicule this program as a disaster of monumental proportions, ill thought out and executed. Understand that even if this program had worked exactly as described there would have been a shortage of doctors to facilitate it … and now there will be a deficit of doctors on a biblical scale
So if you still think that those of us who warned of medical treatment rationing and death panels (deciding who will get necessary and rationed care by what they still have to offer the state) are nuts or Doom Sayers … think again because this my friends is a serious reality check !!!

Another Obamacare shoe drops: Docs not participating
By: Rick Morgan.
Obamacare might be signing up millions of people who never had insurance before but it is going to be difficult in some places for them to find a doctor to treat them.
New York doctors are treating ObamaCare like the plague, a new survey reveals.
A poll conducted by the New York State Medical Society finds that 44 percent of MDs said they are not participating in the nation’s new health-care plan.
Another 33 percent say they’re still not sure whether to become ObamaCare providers.
Only 23 percent of the 409 physicians queried said they’re taking patients who signed up through health exchanges.
“This is so poorly designed that a lot of doctors are afraid to participate,” said Dr. Sam Unterricht, president of the 29,000-member organization. “There’s a lot of resistance. Doctors don’t know what they’re going to get paid.”
Three out of four doctors who are participating in the program said they “had to participate” because of existing contractual obligations with an insurer or medical provider, not because they wanted to.
Only one in four “affirmatively” chose to sign up for the exchanges.
Nearly eight in 10 – 77 percent – said they had not been given a fee schedule to show much they’ll get paid if they sign up.
The survey invited doctors to anonymously share opinions about the new health care law, and many took time out of their busy days to vent.
“Obama Care wants to start right away, but who see all these new patients???? Not me,” e-mailed one doc.
Another said, “I plan to retire if this disaster is implemented. This is a train wreck.”
“I refuse to participate in the exchange plans! I am completely opposed to this new law,” said a third respondent.
One doctor recycled the mantra used to attack addictions: “The solution is simple: Just say no.”
One physician was so disgusted, he threatened to taken only cash patients going forward.
“I am seriously considering opting out of all insurance plans including Medicare because of [ObamaCare].”
Some physicians said the pressure on insurance carriers to control costs is leading to rationed care.
“OBAMACARE is a disaster. I have already seen denial of medication, denial of referrals,” one doc said.
And they worry that stingy payments for medical services offered by insurers could put some doctors out of business and force others into retirement.
“Any doctor who accepts the exchange is just a bad businessman/woman. Pays terrible,” argued one doctor.
And these are doctors from blue state New York. What do you think doctors in some red states are saying about Obamacare?
Not to sound like a broken record, but this aspect of Obamacare was predicted over and over again during the debates. Warnings about doctors “going Galt,” or not accepting any new Medicare or Medicaid patients, or dropping out of private practice altogether were continuously made before the law was passed.
Saying “I told you so” is cold comfort when the chilling effects of Obamacare become plain to everyone.
