More scary ObamaCare we never knew about comes to light

I believe that it only came to light yesterday because it only occurred to the regime’s collective mind over the weekend, after Rep. Ryan released his plan. This brilliant idea isn’t in the actual ObamCare bill.

In his speech yesterday, which was a poor attempt to rebut Rep. Paul Ryan’s much touted Path to Prosperity, Obama disclosed a new plan to the American people:

Fifteen members will serve on the Independent Payment Advisory Board [IPAD – dontcha love these government acronyms?], all appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. If per capita costs grow by more than GDP plus 0.5%, this board would get more power, including an automatic budget sequester to enforce its rulings. So 15 sages sitting in a room with the power of the purse will evidently find ways to control Medicare spending that no one has ever thought of before and that supposedly won’t harm seniors’ care, even as the largest cohort of the baby boom generation retires and starts to collect benefits. The Wall Street Journal

These are 15 UNELECTED “sages” who will be able to spend or not spend money, which  up  until now has been the job of Congress.

Let’s forego the obvious, that this is a stupid idea, and look at it as though it will really happen.

15 guys are appointed by the president to make these health decisions. When this president is gone, in 4 or 8  years and a new president comes in, a whole new bunch of wise men will be appointed.  Where’s the continuity in that? We are dealing with human beings who are making subjective decisions. It’s like musical chairs. They leave and new guys come take their place and all things will change again with every new butt that sits down.

It’s ridiculous. And it can be dangerous to the citizens. Imagine the malevolent chair sitters that might be appointed – guys who really don’t revere the Constitution or our republic, like for instance some of the czar’s that Obama has already appointed.

Obviously, this regime could not have thought this through. These people are supposed to be smart then I and I can see how stupid and unworkable, not to mention unfair, this idea is.

Seriously. Think about this. If you can’t see how unworkable, subjective and just plain goofy this whole idea is, then I’m a Chinese astronaut.

    Now Howard Dean even agrees with you!

    Obama just want total control, he is evil.

    Roxy,

    From where I sit Barack Obama is the most evil man on the planet. Those Americans who voted for Obama and who praises this man are selling their souls.

    I often think of Obama as the Damien character from the movie, “The Omen.”

    At first when I thought of him that way, I would brush it off but now I am not so sure. There is no low to which this man will not sink. The ugliest and most hateful words come out of him.

    He is indeed bad news for everyone.

      And I could not agree with you more. Evil is a good word for him and the sum of his behaviors toward this nation.

      What’s the going rate for selling you soul these days? At one time it was 30 pieces of silver, I’m sure it’s much higher, especially when the government is using other peoples money.

    Oh, I bet they’ve thought this thru. And I’ll also bet that there is more to it than we already know. A lot more.

    IPAD sounds a whole lot better than “Death Panels”; but a rose by any other name…

    • roxannadanna

      Yes, loopy you’re right, it is another form of death panel but if you listened to his speech, it was a cobbled together bunch of ideas, no policy, no concrete advancements. Nothing even close to what Ryan produced. I’ve read Ryan’s plan (there’s a pdf at Fox News) and nothing Obama said was even close to a debate of ideas with Ryan.

      It was as though they threw together a speech that primarily attacked the GOP and specifically, Ryan. And from all this tossed salad of ideas, came this iPad thing.

      The only cohesive thing in his speech was attack and ridicule of the GOP.
