I asked this a while back, and this story

brought the questions back to mind:
The Obama administration is quietly diverting roughly $500 million to the IRS to help implement the president’s healthcare law.

The money is only part of the IRS’s total implementation spending, and it is being provided outside the normal appropriations process. The tax agency is responsible for several key provisions of the new law, including the unpopular individual mandate.
First question was "Hey, IRS: you think people don't care for you now, wait until you show up at their door as the Enforcers For Obamacare; what do you think they'll think of you then?" I guarantee they won't like it.

Other question was "When someone is being told "Your mother/father/wife/ husband can't have the treatment they need to live, because the regulations say they're too old for it to be cost effective. So make them comfortable and wait for the end" it won't be the fat-ass politicians saying it, it'll be some bureaucrat in a local office, and he'll be the one people most associate with this crap; have said bureaucrats thought about how well that's going to go over?"

The other day I read this "Your father's not cost-effective to treat so take him home to die" crap from the British NHS, and posted it on Facebook(I know, but it's a good way to annoy some people). One of the comments from someone I used to think intelligent was "So they were able to pay out of their own pocket and get him treated elsewhere, so what's the problem?" Well, let's see:
People like her have lectured us that Nationalized Health Care will not allow such to happen;
We've been told such decisions won't happen;
We've been told people WON'T HAVE TO pay out of their own pocket because Obamacare will make all well;
As I recall, Obamacare will make it friggin' ILLEGAL for you to do that.
So there's four reasons why THERE'S A DAMNED PROBLEM.

If we have to pay for the treatment that we need then what is the use of health insurance? Isn't the point of having Obamacare to cover the people who can't afford to pay for treatments?
