Dept of Compulsory Health Outlaws Pre-existing Conditions

Quote:
The Commissar for Healthcare Enforcement of the Department of Compulsory Health and Mandatory Human Services has announced that, because of the Party’s successful implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan is no longer seeking new applicants.

At this time, the Commissar has determined that all citizens are now sufficiently covered by State-approved medical services, and there are no more citizens in need.

Citizens are now instructed to have no further medical conditions that require government assistance, and the acquisition of new 'pre-existing conditions' is now forbidden.

Since all citizens are now covered by some type of government-mandated program, there are no longer any ‘pre-existing’ conditions that would disqualify a citizen from coverage.

Workers and peasants of the USSA retain the right to present themselves at any hospital emergency room for immediate treatment, and by law they cannot be refused. This, of course, was law before the new law, but the new law also redistributes the costs of medical coverage through a more elaborated system subject to more government scrutiny, which is expected to improve the quality of healthcare treatment.

As we all know, government oversight improves efficiency and decreases costs. By providing more documentation of services and double-checking the necessity and appropriateness of procedures, the State assures all citizens of equal treatment. No longer will one citizen receive favorable or better service, but all will partake of exactly the same, fair level of treatment.

Citizens, we have seen the Bourgeoisie and Kulaks use their money to purchase better medical treatment than the workers and peasants of the USSA. Comrade Party Chairman and President Barack Barackovich Obama is leading America to a future in which money will no longer buy you better things than what your neighbor has. Yes, we are called to a bright future of complete equality, where money and favoritism will be utterly displaced by the joys of equality!

The Commissar for Healthcare Enforcement will soon begin compulsory collectivization of those citizens who refuse to pay their fair share of the healthcare program. Kulaks will be paying penalties for their excessive hoarding through their refusals to pay into the State-mandated insurance collectives. Please assist the Commissar by denouncing uninsured citizens.

Onward to Victory over the Uninsured!
All loyal citizens participate in medical insurance!

You still have the correction department's firing squad at your disposal for 'pre-existing conditions'.

LOL USA

Where does it say that? Very confusing statement. Is it supposed to mean discriminating against pre-existing conditions is outlawed?

Thanks for the link, but I'm not seeing it. The closest I can find is this:

Starting next January 1, insurance companies will no longer be able to turn anyone away because of poor health.

IMO the article doesn't make Obamacare look good, but that's different.

This is excellent. Aside from extraneous English words (such as "the"), it reads like the old Soviet bullshit. :lol:

Uhm, OK. It says it in the title, then fails to demonstrate the claim in the article.

It's a humor website. I think you're taking it a little bit too literally.

So hat-tip to the pseudo-agitprop. The website I took this from is run by a former Soviet agitprop artist who came to the US back in the early 90s. The entire point of the site is to ridicule the US leftists who keep advocating for policies that destroyed the USSR.

Indeed.


I love the whole idea of "the people's cube". It is the only true PC toy. Women, Asians, Africans, Whites, Males, Maori, The blind, The dead, The paraplegic, The quadriplegic, The rich, The poor, Educators, and even politicians have true equality of results.

Behold! The most PC toy ever!

I think he'd be concerned that the color red is contributing to global warming and entirely miss that there was a toy involved.

I didn't notice anything untrue in the article, short of the title. So I don't see how they're achieving their goal.

By showing that the thinking would not be at all out of place in a U.S.S.R. -style propaganda announcement, they point out the truly left-wing, bureaucratic, authoritarian-collectivist nature of the agenda, in a humorous fashion.
