Suzanne Somers: ObamaCare a Socialized Medicine Train Wreck
Suzanne Somers left behind her air-headed persona decades ago and now writes extensively on health issues.
This week, the former Three's Company star is covering ObamaCare at The Wall Street Journal, and she's not mincing a single syllable.
First of all, let’s call affordable health care what it really is: It’s socialized medicine.
The actress then details some of her disastrous experiences with the Canadian health care system, including lengthy delays to see doctors and shoulder shrugs for seriously ill older patients. She diagnoses the legislation's economic problems as bad for the country's bottom line.
Affordable care will allow for pre-existing conditions. That’s the good part for retirees. But, let’s get down and dirty; the word “affordable” is a misnomer. So far, all you are hearing on the news is how everyone’s premiums are doubling and tripling and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to recognize that the whole thing is a big mess. Plus, even after Obamacare is fully implemented, there still will be tens of millions of people not covered. So what’s the point? Medical care will be degraded, the costs will skyrocket, and most frightening of all, your most intimate and personal information is now up for grabs.
