Obamacare the Abysmal

I don't understand how anyone can defend Obamacare at this point. It's abysmal. And it will keep getting worse, when 2014 regulations go into effect and even more people lose their policies and/or jobs. How can a piece of legislation with these adverse effects possibly be considered as a good thing for America? Pay more for less coverage and less access to high-quality care which will take cash only? Seriously?

On Drudge this morning (but with my emphasis on Coulter):

Coulter's column is terrific. Pass it on. What few people don't know about the bellyflop Obamacare is will surely be hurting as much of the rest of it as it becomes fully implemented, if we can't get rid of Obamacare before then. Hence spreading the warnings now. 

My favorite Coulter excerpts:
In a weird confluence of the nation's two most pressing issues -- Obamacare and our insane immigration laws -- this week we found out that the tens of thousands of "navigators" hired by the government to enroll people in Obamacare will include convicted felons. 

Despite some "navigators" having already been exposed as having arrest warrants against them, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has no plans to screen out the criminals. (But rest assured: If your identity is stolen as a result of trying to sign up for Obamacare, no one will be more upset about it than President Obama.) 

Maybe it's a blessing that the Obamacare website has crashed more often than the Soviet Union's commercial air fleet did. 
Excerpt #2:
Which reminds me, federal health insurance programs have long been a prime target for scammers and con artists. 

To much fanfare, in 2006 Medicare announced that only 7 percent of its payments were a result of fraud. Two years later, The New York Times reported that it was actually 31.5 percent -- and that Medicare had aggressively hidden the fraud from outside auditors. 

Do you think a privately run insurance company would take three years to notice that one-third of its payouts had been obtained by fraud? But with federal programs, there's a powerful incentive not to look for fraud. That would merely vindicate critics of big government!
And #3 (though reading the whole column will put this in much better context):
Enormous, unwieldy corrupt government programs run by arrogant bureaucrats would be bad enough in 1950. But after decades of our Third World-only immigration policies, one can't help noticing that Medicare and Medicaid are beckoning Disneylands for foreign-born thieves. 

The problem isn't their complexion, it's their culture. In America, we think only dumb people become criminals. That's not true in the Third World!
