Harry Reid warns of coming ObamaCare ‘train wreck’

There is no conclusive agreement regarding the ultimate amount the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) will cost the American people, but most estimates have it somewhere in the trillion dollar range. It’s a staggering number, especially when you consider the likelihood prices will skyrocket once the bulk of ObamaCare kicks in later this year and in the years to come.

But there is at least one person who still isn’t fazed by the massive price tag: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

“More money is needed, says Harry Reid. He shares his colleagues’ concerns now that the Affordable Care Act will become a train wreck if it’s not implemented properly,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Oh, gee. So in other words, what you’re saying is it’s going to cost more money than you thought it would.”

According to TheHill.com:

Reid warned that people will not be able to choose health insurance plans on government health exchanges if federal authorities lack the resources to set them up and educate the public.

“Max said unless we implement this properly it’s going to be a train wreck, and I agree with him,” Reid said, echoing a warning delivered last month by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.).

“Well, you know what? Max and you should have gotten together and thought about this earlier,” Glenn said. “You should have listened to me on radio or on Fox. You should have listened to Sean [Hannity] or Rush [Limbaugh] or anybody else.”

“We called it a train wreck back then,” Pat said. “We told you.”

TheHill article goes on to say, “Reid warned the federal government is not spending enough money to implement the law because of Republican opposition to ObamaCare.”

Clearly, the ‘blame Republicans’ mantra is not lost on Sen. Reid.

“No, what they are doing now is they’re setting this up and saying, ‘We could have avoided this train wreck but it’s the evil Republicans,’ and the American people will believe it,” Glenn said. “I have truly given up on us really winning our country back. I just do not see a way that you’re going to be able to. I’m sorry.”

“Wow,” Pat responded in obvious surprise.

“I don’t see a way that you’re going to be able to put this thing back together,” Glenn continued. “I think you have to save the remnants. I think there’s a restart coming. And they know this. This is what they’re doing to the entire world. They are resetting the entire system of the world. They are bringing the power down slowly.”

Pat wasn’t quite so pessimistic. Though in light of the recent announcement that Sen. Baucus will not seek reelection in 2014, Pat couldn’t help but wonder if the ObamaCare fiasco played a role.

“I don’t know if it’s going to hell and we can’t save it. I still have a lot of hope that we can but I think this is one of the reasons,” Pat explained. “But to me this is one of the reasons Max Baucus is done. I think Max Baucus has done all the damage he can possibly do, he knows he screwed this thing up, and he’s getting out because he doesn’t want any more to do with it.”

“Oh, that’s good of him,” Glenn said wryly. “I appreciate that.”

    Here is the truth of the matter – we were lied to from the beginning by the Democratic Socialists and now its coming back to haunt them.

    When Obama-care passed, the Democrats dominated House, Senate and Presidency; they own this mess, may it bite them hard.

    Glenn is correct. Every day, there is a bit more nudge and push from healtcare, insurance companies, food pricing, utility and gas pricing; the list goes on an on.  Our federal gov’t along with the U.N. and others are slowly ratcheting down America.  There is a bottom, and at the bottom is world bank and world government. Kerchunk, kerchunk, kerchunk.  If I was not a Christian, I would feel very lost or perhaps not being a Christian, a Jew, you are blind.

    Here is idea repeal the damn thing. It would never work to begin with throwing money at it is not going to help because it will still fall flat on its face. It is going to take jobs away and take us back even closer to the point of no return. This is what happens liberal when you take logic and reason out of the picture and worship a man as a god making it up as he goes along.

    just remember – this socialist snake issue may die, but the Movement NEVER dies because it is run by the powers of evil beyond the earthly realm. God vs. satan is a battle that will never end until Gods plan for our salvation has ben executed and Christ returns. We must stay on God’s side and stand where we can against evil and it will end well for us.

    Harry Reid? The idiot who along with Nancy Pelosi was having heart flutters over the passing of  the monstrosity of a law?  How ironic. Now he wants more money to get the “unaffordable healthcare law” up and running. Shocking huh!!!  So far there has been nothing about this law that even remotely resembles affordability or improvement in healthcare.
    I personally know primary care MD’s that have already left their practice. We will most certainly end up with the doctors that know one else wants. Incompetent and poor quality doctors. There are plenty of then around waiting to make their living off of Obama’s sad brand of medicine.
    As an RN it disgusts me. The entire bill is a train wreck and will never work.
    But the politicians continue to shove it down our throats and tell us the majority of people want it and it will be good and provide healthcare for all. So many lies and not a damn thing we can do about it because they are the ones who know best!!!

    Recall campaigns for every democrat that voted for the bill and is now saying its a train wreck.

    It will shut them up, make them spend money, and be on the news weather state controled media likes it or not talking about how they were wrong.

    Are you kidding it won’t haunt them.  They don’t care they will just blame it on the Republicans and move on to something else.  I would like to stick with one issue and get it cleared up before we go hopping on everything else.  I am still at Benghazi and why we can’t get any answers.  I think they should all go to jail starting with Obama on down.

    So, they didn’t listen to the majority of the people who tried to tell them this whole bill was a P.O.S. They didn’t listen to people telling them it was going to cost WAY more they projected. The CBO has already said this bill would cost WAY more than the initial estimates. Now, they need more money than that to impliment it properly? What a complete joke. These idiots have their heads jammed so far up their asses, they couldn’t pull it out with both hands and map.

    More money?  Train wreck?   How about these fools read the bills before they pass them?  This idiocy is a direct result of the failures of our so-called leaders, and now they want more.  There will never be enough money for their insanity.  The rest of we peasants knew it was going to be a train wreck; particularly after that complete moron Nancy Pelosi said “we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.”  Scrap the whole thing, de-fund it and turn the ship around before it’s too late.

    This is where dishonesty got the Democrats, people are upset that their healthcare plans and providers have been eliminated.   The Left wanted to buy votes and gain control over the population through healthcare.  They do have a train wreck because there is no way Obamacare will provide healthcare to all the people, it just can’t be implemented, and they shouldn’t expect more money to fix bad policy decisions.   They messed with a healthcare system that is better than anywhere else in the world. Our friends came here from England, and Italy to see American doctors and get healthcare they didn’t have to wait in line for.  When the government gets involved in issues they know nothing about, or try to gain control over 1/3 of the economy, it will come back to haunt them.

  • Staceycarverd

    Dingy Harry should know all about the train wreck, he’s stoking the coal on the fire.  Our only hope is that some real Americans with common sense are elected in high enough numbers in every office to repeal this monstrosity known and 0bama-doesn’t-care.

     A country on Socialism is like an Alcholic with alcohol, or an addict on drugs . The alcoholic and the drug addict won’t usually do anything about quitting until the hit bottom. The same goes for a country strung out on socialism and Communism. The country has to hit rock bottom, destroy itself, before it gives up the drug.

    Obamacare has hit my dad.  He had to go to the emergency room with irregular heartbeat and he passed out.  They keep him in the ER all day and then put him in a room.  He is 78 years old.  They put him on medicine to stablize his heartbeat and they ran all kinds of tests.  He stayed at the hospital for 3 days.   Two days after he got home , he received a Explanation Of Benefits from his Insurance,  it said they will not be paying any of this bill and that he would have to get a lawyer within a certain time frame if he wanted to repeal it.  He just about had a heart attack reading that, he is so sick and is trying to get well and now  he has to deal with this, and there is no telling how much this hospital bill will be.  Please people pray that this Obamacare is done away with, I don’t want to loose my dad or anyone else.

    Sandie – in response to both of your posts: yes, some are merely delayed, some (such as yesterday) I posted three times and never have seen again, though others say they have shown up.

    I have notified Disqus as you mentioned, and they are on top of the matter. It should be taken care of shortly, as in the past they have a good track record for doing so.

    Otherwise this “Ghost in the Machine” is going to be a reoccurring mess for a time until it can be found WHEREVER it is at. And with the internet as a whole that can be a huge area.
