Americans "Ready To Kill" Over Obamacare

Obamacare doesn't officially kick off until January 1st, yet millions of Americans are already at each other's throats over it.

Research from the U.S. Census Bureau shows that the country is now more divided than any other time in history since the Civil War era.

In fact, 20 states including Texas, Georgia and Louisiana have threatened to secede.

And despite a recent Supreme Court ruling making Obamacare the law of the land, only 24 states are moving forward with a key aspect of Obamacare- the expansion of Medicaid. Of the rest, 21 are opposed and five are deadlocked in debate.

Editor's Note: Millions of Americans are enraged over government imposed Obamacare. Watch this shocking video to see how one group of furious citizens is getting revenge.

So far, every single southern state from Texas to Virginia has refused to widen Medicaid, a key provision of the Obamacare program.

This will leave millions of Americans without coverage.

That's because they make too much money to qualify for Medicaid as it now stands, but not enough to get the subsidies to buy insurance in the new exchanges.

The South isn't alone in rejecting Obamacare. Liberal states such as Maine have opposed the bill.

Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Ohio have yet to move forward with the expansion.

Even legendary investor Warren Buffett, a one-time Obamacare supporter, said in 2010 he would scrap the healthcare bill and start over.

One of the main architects of the bill, Democratic Senator Max Baucus from Montana said Obamacare is heading for a "train wreck" if it's not implemented properly.

Obamacare Tax Hikes Stoke The Most Outrage

While even Obamacare detractors applaud the requirement that insurance companies cover pre-existing conditions and put a stop to lifetime caps on benefits, they say these laudable benefits don't compensate for the bills high cost - especially in new taxes.

According to most experts, Obamacare will create no fewer than twenty new taxes or tax hikes on the American people.

In fact, the Obama administration has already given the IRS an extra $500 million to enforce the rules and regulations of Obamacare.

The new taxes don't bode well for millions of middle-class Americans. Incomes for the rich have soared this decade but middle class workers have seen their wages stagnate and even drop since the 2008 Great Recession.

Many fear Obamacare with its high insurance costs and new taxes, could provide the middle class a fatal blow.

The 20 new Obamacare taxes are making Americans eyes pop out in disbelief. Take a look.

With January 1 quickly approaching, millions of Americans are asking what they can do to prepare for all the new costs, rules and regulations.

One expert, Dr. Betsy McCaughey, a constitutional scholar with a Ph.D. from Columbia University, recently wrote a best-seller showing Americans how they can not only survive Obamacare, but prosper through it.

McCaughey claims to be one of the only people in the country - including members of Congress - who has actually read the entire 2,572 page law.

Her book, titled Beating Obamacare: Your Handbook for Surviving The New Health Care Law, breaks the huge bill down into 168 pages of actionable advice.

The book, written in an easy going, easy to read style, shows some startling facts about Obamacare not seen in the mainstream press.

For example, she points to a little known passage in the bill that shows how you could get slapped with a $2,000 fine for not having health insurance - even if you do actually have it.

She also goes into detail explaining how a third of all U.S. employers could stop offering health insurance to their workers.

In one chapter, she shows how ordinary Americans will get stuck paying for substance abuse coverage - even if they never touched a drink or drug in their life.

According to McCaughey's research, senior citizens will get hit the hardest.

Hip and knee replacements and cataract surgery will be especially hard to get from Medicare in the months ahead thanks to Obamacare, according to McCaughey.

She warns seniors to get those types of procedures done now before Obamacare goes into effect January 1.

Editor's Note: Real facts and figures about the hidden Obamacare taxes and fees and how they will affect everyday Americans and seniors are hard to find. As a courtesy, Money Morning is giving readers a free copy of Betsy McCaughey's new book Beating Obamacare: Your Handbook for Surviving The New Health Care Law. But only a limited number of copies are available. Please go here to reserve yours today.

2 out of 3 of those have threatened to secede well before The Affordable Care Act passed

 Betsy McCaughey (/məˈkɔɪ/; born Elizabeth Helen Peterken, October 20, 1948), formerly known as Betsy McCaughey Ross, was the 72nd Lieutenant Governor of New York from 1995 to 1998, during the first term of Governor George Pataki. She unsuccessfully sought the Democratic Party nomination for Governor after Pataki dropped her from his 1998 ticket

An historian by training, with a Ph.D. from Columbia University, she has, over the years, provided commentary on healthcare policy. Her 1993 attack on the Clinton healthcare plan was considered to be a major factor in the defeat of the bill, and brought her to the attention of Pataki, who then chose her as his Lieutenant Governor running mate. In 2009, her criticisms of the healthcare plan then being debated in the 111th Congress inspired the slogans "death panel" and "pulling the plug on Grandma", which nearly defeated the legislation.

She has been a fellow at the conservative Manhattan Institute and Hudson Institute think tanks, and has written numerous articles and op-eds. She was a member of the boards of directors of Genta, a medical supply corporation that focuses on products for cancer treatment from 2001 to 2007, and Cantel Medical Corporation, a company that produces and sells medical equipment—until she resigned in August 2009 to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest during the national debate over healthcare reform legislation..

SHe is conservative. She just doesn't seem to want health care for the USA, does she? She didn't like the Clinton's efforts at creating health care either.( As read above)

In 2009 she started the "death Panel" controversy. "Pulling the plug on Grandma". That "death panel" thing,of course, is not true.  I suppose she picked up on Sarah Palin's comment and ran with it....

Oh boy.

I wonder what her agenda is?

 http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/04/15/governor-says-texans-want-secede-union-probably-wont/

In 2009 Fox News reported that Texas / Tea Party was fed up with the economy and taxation and wanted to secede from the nation. They didn't even mention"Obamacare".

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/states-petition-to-secede-from-union/

As the dust settles in the wake of President Obama's decisive reelection last Tuesday, the White House petition website has been flooded by a series of secession requests, with malcontents from New Jersey to North Dakota submitting petitions to allow their states to withdraw from the union.

Most of the petitions submitted thus far have come from solidly conservative states, including most of the Deep South and reliably separatist Texas. But a handful come from the heart of blue America - relatively progressive enclaves like Oregon and New York.

All told, petitions have been filed on behalf of 20 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas

******************

I think we must admit that after the 2012 election many states who wanted to secede wished to do so for many reasons, mostly economical issues involved.

another obama lie, if you like your insurance, you will be able to keep it.  Many still refuse to believe he lied.

If someone is ready to kill, that is called homicidal ideation, and a symptom of mental disease or defect.

I am skeptical of a book that claims to explain a 2,572 page law, but is only 168 pages long. The book should contain the text of the law as a reference.

Texas has been yapping about seceding from the Union for a long time. It will never happen because Texas can't afford to not get federal money.

Spin, spin, spin. It is what keeps our country divided. 


While I am not a huge fan of obamacare; I am still waiting for the opposition to present a viable plan to improve healthcare in the US. Killing, defeating Obama, shut downs, spins, etc doesn't solve anything at all.
