Zeke Emanuel: If you want to pay more to keep your doctor, “you can do that. It’s a matter of choice.”

posted at 6:01 pm on December 8, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

Is it a matter of “choice,” Mr. Emanuel? Is it?

Wallace: President Obama famously promised, ‘if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.’ Doesn’t that turn out to be just as false, just as misleading, as his promise about ‘if you like your plan, you can keep your plan’? Isn’t a fact, sir, that a number, most in fact, of the ObamaCare health plans that are being offered on the exchanges exclude a number of doctors and hospitals to lower costs?

Emanuel: The president never said you were going to have unlimited choice of any doctor in the country you want… But look, if you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that. It’s a matter of choice. … The issue isn’t the selective networks… People are going to have a choice of whether they want to pay a certain amount for a selective network, or pay more for a broader network. They get that choice.

Yes, which isn’t much comfort if you are now precluded from seeing your same doctor unless you start paying more more, is it? How odd that they mysteriously neglected to mention that little caveat when they were making grandiose promises while simultaneously designing a system that would try to prevent premiums from skyrocketing by deliberately, systematically, and drastically limiting provider networks and reducing consumer choice, no?

Why would Obamavoters care about “keeping” their doctor anyway? Their “doctor” is whoever is on staff in the emergency room when they need some antibiotics for a head cold.

Kind of like the mindset of the Orwellian warmist loons who have been saying for years that global warming climate change would make “snow a thing of the past” (David Viner) and winters would become “unbearably mild,” but now that we have been having a long string of severe winters the Chicken Little double talkers easily revise it to a ultra-gullible public and say that global warming is causing severe cold, like we are seeing across America right now. Insane.

Of course I can keep my doctor.
He/she and I will negotiate a price, just as we have done since intermediaries like government and insurance got in the way- starting with HMOs in the 80′s and followed by preventive care, neither of which I was interested in covering in a premium.

The true goal of single-payer is to create a minimum standard of care for the masses, and a premium level of care for those who can afford to supplement it.

It’s why when people say single-payer is the way to go, and the Medicare is a shining example of the liberal health care agenda, I always ask, “Then why re there Medicare Advantage plans?” Zeke’s talking about “Healthcare Advantage” for the rich. Occupiers should be grabbing their pitchforks.

albill on December 8, 2013 at 6:54 PM

If you’re going to organize a protest and want people to attend, feel free to post the information. I’m sure the moderators won’t mind.

As to why it isn’t occurring as much in general, most people on the right don’t like to protest in the streets. That’s not to disparage the ones that do, but there are many other ways to express one’s opinion that are at least as effective.

I have never ever been moved to change my opinion on any matter because a bunch of angry people are marching in the streets and shouting and chanting – quite the contrary, it usually makes me think “hmmm, have I made adequate preparations in case this thing gets out of hand?

Having said all of that, there are certainly issues where making a bit of noise makes sense, such as ones where many people can otherwise go about their day to day life forgetting it even happens, like abortion. But I don’t think there’s a danger anyone’s going to forget that their healthcare premiums just tripled.

Well, some are more anti-human than others, but underlying much of the green movement is an arguably quasi-religious distaste for ourselves. Anyway, you give me the excuse to run some quotes from the loons:
“Isn’t the only hope for this planet the total collapse of industrial civilisation? Is it not our responsibility to ensure that this collapse happens?” -Maurice Strong, ex UNEP Director
“A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States.” -John Holdren (1973), Obama’s Science Czar
“It has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution.” -John Holdren
“The planet is about to break out with fever, indeed it may already have, and we [human beings] are the disease. We should be at war with ourselves and our lifestyles.” -Thomas Lovejoy, Smithsonian Institution
“My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness returning throughout the world.” -David Foreman, Earth First
“A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer.” -Paul Ehrlich, Standford University Ecoactivist
“An ecocatastrophe (climate change) is taking place on earth.. prohibition, enforcement and oppression are the only solution. Those most responsible..will be sent to the mountains for re-education in eco-gulags. The sole glimmer of hope lies in a centralised government and the tireless control of citizens.” -Pentti Linkola, Ecologist
“It [climate change efforts] is a campaign not for abundance but for austerity. It is a campaign not for more freedom but for less. Strangest of all, it is a campaign not just against other people, but against ourselves.” -George Monbiot, UK Ecojournalist

It’s perfectly understandable. Obama and the Hollywood/Political/Business elite’s can’t have the peons using their facilities, that would be icky. To ensure only the one’s who are in Obama’s accepted upper class have access to Mayo, Chicago General, or MD Anderson, you have to price those facilities out of reach to ensure the riff raff will keep to their own lower class, I mean, affordable medical facilities. Or just die. That way, Obama won’t have to resort to rounding up the masses for deportation, I mean vacation, to the “summer” camps for “re-education”.

You joke but given the left’s obsession with population control, “useless eaters,” etc, I would not be surprised if people dying from having their health care stripped from them is an actual part of the plan. Not to mention that the elderly are far more likely to vote Republican than the young.

Don’t you know my speech was a crock?

Ha ha baby, I did this to you, baby,
You cannot get out, you cannot get right outta it.

(Oh, yeah, oh yeah)

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.
Any way the wind blows.

Excellent!

One wonders why people are not out marching in protest?

Flipping out a negative comment on Hot Air about ObamaCare or a 144 character Tweet is not going to change anything.

Look in the mirror and answer your own question.

Ezekiel Emanuel is the most odious creep I have ever seen on television.

It’s perfectly understandable. Obama and the Hollywood/Political/Business elite’s can’t have the peons using their facilities, that would be icky.

This is what I have been saying since the evil prevaricator currently in the White House appeared on the national scene.
Nor do they want us on ‘their’ airplanes, in ‘their’ restaurants, or in ‘their’ favorite shops.
Obamacare accomplishes so much of the liberal elitist dream. Not only are we, the dirty masses, forced into substandard healthcare which will shorten our lives considerably, while we are waiting to die (according to the plan), we cannot afford travel or entertainment because our ‘health care’ premiums are more expensive than our housing costs and we no longer have any money to spend on anything other than pure survival.

I doubt he cares.

About anyone other than himself.

Ok, I’m ready for a purge.

Yeah, I said it.

Mrs. Sebelius created a bunch of Metal level insurance policies right out of the 1980′s. These – bronze, gold, platinum, etc. are the most stagnant restrictive ideas on insurance, the kind states that have already worked on insurance reform have not seen in years.You know on car insurance you can add this and that and see the cost, each time you express your “choice” it tallies the total.

What if I want a policy with my EXPENSIVE doctor, with the cheap mental health and the cheap maternity care since I don’t need those things, and I want my policy to have the EXPENSIVE cancer treatments, but only the cheap sex change operations, since I won’t be doing that. What is with this one size fits all? The inflexibility is astounding. Further, I should be able to see how the choices affect the dollar cost, especially how each of these Obamacare mandates affect the cost. It is a consumer right in many states to see what the car insurance covers and an itemized tally how much it costs. Surely health insurance is more important and should not be exempt.I want Platinum cancer care, and bronze mental health with a really high deductible. That ought to be do able. (And I still don’t want to pay for pediatric dental, I already paid thousands for kids teeth, can’t I get a WAIVER?)

I think we must be back in Kansas, in the 1980′s or maybe even the 1970′s with The Secretary in charge. Consumers want CHOICE, they don’t want to pay for things they don’t want. This insurance is a giant step backward compared to the status quo in many states. This is not the insurance that has been working in blue states. It is the camel built by the committee.
