At some point, the doctor is going to have to decide whether he wants to follow the Hippocratic oath or the Obamacratic oath. When the interest of the patient and the doctor are not in alignment, how is he going to make a decision as to what is the right thing to do when faced with the realities of federal law that says something different?
At the heart of Obamacare is more government regulation. While it’s true that more families will be covered under the law, the new entitlement comes with strings attached. Families that take advantage of the affordability tax credits won’t have the option to purchase cheaper insurance plans across state lines and aren’t allowed to buy family-friendly plans.
It’s going to reduce choice because now we have politicians deciding upon who are the winners and the losers, what treatments doctors can perform and get paid for, and what treatments the government says, ‘No, this is not a valid treatment and we’re not going to pay for this. That’s absolutely going to reduce choice — not just in the quantity of doctors, but in the available treatments.
Under the new health care law, that’s exactly what could happen. Obamacare undermines the role of parents by encouraging contraception and abortion without respecting parental consent. School-based health centers will receive $50 million per year to promote such options as contraception and abortion. An additional $75 million per year funds Personal Responsibility Education grants to help states reduce pregnancies.
With the government taking on a greater role, where does that leave a parent. This law sends a message to my children and future Americans that they’re not competent, they can’t take care of themselves, government has to step in to take care of them. We’re taking these basic moral obligations away from ourselves, from our churches, our synagogues, our civic organizations, and we’re delegating these responsibilities to government. I don’t understand that. o_O
