Rationing is here!

Editor:

My husband just had his oxygen delivered and we were told that no matter how much oxygen you need the government will only pay $129.00 a month. You really thought you were immune to Obamacare and rationing?

My husband is in a program that’s administered by Department of Labor, but it’s private money from a settlement and is in a trust fund. They won’t get away with it because of the settlement that was agreed on, which says whatever he requires he gets. My worry is for those on Medicare and Medicaid. You have no recourse or ombudsman to take up your cause as we do.

All of you who thought just because you will get a health card saying you’re covered have been conned big time. Just ask your doctor who has had to put in new programs on their computers. All the offices we’ve been to have said it’s a nightmare, time consuming and costly. That’s time and money that could be spent on your care. I know some people believed that they would get their care free. They may get it free but what kind of care will it be? How many things will no longer be covered, what tests, what medicines? If they’re rationing oxygen for people who can’t breathe, just how compassionate do you think they’ll be with you?

Careful what you wish for and always remember there’s no free lunch and in this case no free medical care.
