19% of health care pros say Americans 'will die earlier' due to Obamacare
By PAUL BEDARD | SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 AT 10:27 AM

A unique new survey of health care professionals finds that 56 percent oppose Obamacare, with more than nine in 10 believing that there could be major negative impacts such as a drop in quality care. A shocking 19 percent believe Americans will die earlier.

In its 2013 Health Care Survey of 200 top health care professionals nationally, Coupa Software told Secrets that health care professionals are worried about a number of setbacks that the health law could result in. Asked to list the “negative impacts,” of which they could pick several, here's what Coupa found:

-- 53 percent, “Quality of health insurance policies will suffer.”

-- 51 percent, “Quality of care will go down.”

-- 49 percent, “The law is overly complicated.”


-- 42 percent, “Insurance exchanges will be poorly managed.”

-- 37 percent, “The law still allows insurance companies to be the middleman.”

-- 32 percent, “Too complex for businesses.”

-- 19 percent, “Americans will die earlier.”

The company provides cloud-based finance applications for many of the nation’s health care providers and is especially focused on waste in the health care system. Their survey found that the health care professionals expect that many inefficiencies, such as unnecessary emergency room visits, will be fixed under Obamacare.

The survey displayed the split in the community over the law, with both positives and negatives being found. While 93 percent cited negative impacts, 74 percent also found positive outcomes from the law, the biggest being the availability of health insurance to those who don’t have it.

But that support for the law is offset by the overall view of the law by the health care community. The poll, which is being released Monday but was provided in advance to Secrets, found that 56 percent oppose most or all of the Affordable Care Act’s provisions. Only 6 percent favor all of the law, and 38 percent favor most of it.

There is still a huge number of people who still think Obamacare means free health care. My wife runs insurance claims in her father's dentist office and they get lots of walk-ins who think  the service is now provided for free. This has been going on sense it was passed into law, and its going to get worse after Oct 1.   I'm sure doctors and hospitals see the same thing.

This fear of death is this nations's undoing.  There are things worse than death, subjugation being one of them.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Of course Americans will die earlier because of Obamacare.  And we'll be sicker too.

That's what happens when you get too old to be productive in a Marxist world like Obama's.

No big deal......
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
