Government Regulated Health Care: A huge mistake

August 5th, 2009 Calvin Lyman

It is sad that America has gone so far down the road of statism that our President and many of our Congressional leaders are attempting to pass a bill that will nationalize our health care. This is yet another step towards socialism! The bill, H.R. 3200, will cost over $1 trillion. H.R. 3200 is even more costly than the economic stimulus bill passed earlier this year!

Those of you who think that the stimulus bill was a good idea, don’t you think that we might be spending just a tad too much? Our national debt has climbed to 11 trillion, and the liberals in Congress haven’t done anything to stop it’s climb. Instead they spend their time and energy passing bills that take away power from the people and give it to the government, and spend so much money that we can’t hope to pay it off any time soon. It is our duty as Americans to make sure that they do not pass this bill. Winston Churchill was one of the great politicians of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Churchill once said that whoever does not learn from history is destined to repeat it.

Throughout history, it ha been made clear that printing massive amounts of money to throw at all your problems temporarily solves problems, but in the end causes runaway inflation.. But the money being spent is not the most troubling aspect of this new bill. Everything about this new health care system would be regulated by the government. Government would also cut funding for Medicare and mandate “end life” counseling. This health care system would depend on a rationing mechanism, and this rationing would begin with the elderly.

No one should have the right to take away your right to life, even if you don’t have much longer to live. This bill is loaded with dangerous and unconstitutional items. Among these are included Government restriction of the enrollment of special needs people in Nationalized health care, as well as the exemption of individual taxes, purchasing mandates, and fines for non resident aliens, that are required of every legal, U.S. citizen.

This is simply outrageous.

A recent Rasmussen poll found that the majority of Americans oppose Obama’s plan for government-run health care. Yet these liberals continue to try to shove it down our throats. Certain Republicans who have the guts to fight back against this madness have proposed 31 amendments to H.R. 3200, all of which the Democrats have opposed. One would have allowed states to opt out, another would have prevented taxpayer-funded health benefits from going to illegal immigrants, yet another would have prevented bureaucrats from making personal medical decisions for patients. The list goes on and on. The fact that Democrats said no to all of these amendments makes their purpose clear: To take away more of our individual freedoms, and give it to themselves.

We as Americans must stop these bureaucrats from bringing this bill into effect. The consequences of anything less are dire. If your Senators and Representative have not announced plans to vote against this bill, please call or e-mail them and beg them to oppose it.

Cash For Clunkers- Great Program or Same Ole Same Ole?

August 4th, 2009 Aliy N

The associated press today (8/4/09) released an article that the current administration (which promised transparancy in Washington) will NOT be releasing the records to show where the $1 Billion has gone. The president is currently pushing congress to approve another $2 billion for the program.

The administration is claiming that the cars traded in equate to 61% more fuel efficiency.They are high 5-ing over the success of spending over a billion dollars we don’t have. With that said, I do appreciate that for environmentalists this would be GREAT news. But, keep in mind environmentalists, you can not validate the administrations claims without the documentation to back it up.

The transportation department is sitting on records of 157,000 rebate requests. Why, if the evidence is sitting in a database, and it proves the success this program, would they sit on the data they’ve been promising to the AP since last week!? Can it be that yet again the “new era of transparency” is lying to us?

It’s OK Mr. President, we know most government run programs are a failure. Most of them cost over 10 times more than anyone ever projected they would cost. We can take the truth.

If the program is as successful as you say I would like to see the data to support it. It would be the first real bi-partisan success for the Obama camp. Why NOT let us see it? While you’re at it Mr. Obama, may I please see the federal budget you were suppose to release a couple weeks ago too?

So, yet again we are left with the question, success or failure the era of lying to us continues.

MSNBC Calls Veterans, Senior Citizens, Hockey Moms and Business Owners Hooligans

August 4th, 2009 John Michael Rivera

MSNBC has labeled groups of veterans, senior citizens, hockey moms and business owners showing up at local townhalls to protest the Obama health proposal, as “raw hooliganism”.

MSNBC feels that protesting against President Obama or any liberal for that matter, and standing up for what you believe in is subversive and should be discouraged whenever possible, which in liberal double talk means all the time.

The Obama administration, demonstrating their insecurity says: “constituents venting personal concerns, about Obama’s health care proposal, at townhall meetings were deemed “organized” groups of conservatives, “manufacturing anger” towards the Obama plan-a hilarious accusation since the conservative right has had no organization for quite some time.”

The Obama administration was not counting on voters disagreeing with President Obama, let alone actually demonstrating their dissent. Obama, it seems, does not have any experience in having to debate or defend his opinions due, in part no doubt, to the paralysis of the Republican Party and their refusal to defend themselves and their beliefs against liberal attacks.

For the uninitiated, liberals deplore debating their positions and beliefs because to debate assumes that you can argue for your ideas rationally, another foreign concept for liberals. This is why liberals avoid debates like the plague or paying federal income tax.

Obama the Hypocrite Gives the Reason Why He Rushes the Health Care Bill

August 3rd, 2009 Ryan Christy

Back in November 2004, Obama was on the radio, talking about the whole process of legislation with a lunatic kook fringe host, Randi Rhodes:

OBAMA: When you rush these budgets that are a foot high and nobody has any idea what’s in them and nobody’s read ‘em.

KOOK FRINGE HOST: Fourteen pounds, it was!

OBAMA: Yeah. And it gets rushed through without any clear deliberation or debate, then these kinds of things happen, and I think that this is in some ways what happened to the Patriot Act. I mean, you remember there was no real debate about that, it was so quick after 9/11 that it was introduced — that people felt very intimidated by the administration.

That is almost five years ago, the whiner that is the man-child Barry Obama, complaining about the Bush administration rushing bills through Congress without giving members of the House time to even read the bills!

And just last week on Wednesday, Obama had this exchange in his press conference:

REPORTER: Why the rush? Are you worried that, if there’s a delay until the fall, the whole effort will collapse?

OBAMA: I’m rushed because I get letters every day from families that are being clobbered by health care costs and they ask me, “Can you help?” So I’ve got a middle-aged couple that will write me, and they say, “Our daughter just found out she’s got leukemia, and if I don’t, uh, do something soon, we just… Either going to go bankrupt or, we’re not going to be able to get our daughter the care,

So Rahm Emmanuel is ramming the bill through Congress, without giving them the time to read the bill, because Barack Obama is getting letters. But of course he only gets letters from the families in worst-case scenarios, and never from the ones who oppose. You see, nobody opposes the compassionate Barack Obama, other than the right-wing extremists (that’s what he wants you to perceive). Folks, the letters are 15-to-1 in opposition to ObamaCare over in Congress. Nevertheless, we gotta hurry get this bill passed, because he’s getting all these letters.

Tale From The Waiting Room: The truth about Universal Health Care

August 3rd, 2009 Aliy N

There are over 1,000 children waiting over 600 days for ear, nose and throat surgery in Warnbro, Australia alone!

The Canadian Medical Association Journal found that 50 people in Ontairo ALONE passed away while waiting on necessary surgery (not just cancer).

In 2000 the journal Clinical Oncology had an article about how more than 20% of operable cancer cases became inoperable in the amount of time they spent on the waiting list in England for the operation.

The times online (England) reported the following figures in April of 2009:

More than 43,000 operations were cancelled between January and September of 2008. that equates to over 1,800 people NOT being treated within 28 days of their original surgery date.

This is the kind of care Obama and Pelosi want for YOU.

And it’s not just surgery.

The Toronto Sun ran a story about Mark Degasperis, who mother spent 5 DAYS on a stretcher in a hallway of a hospital waiting for a bed

In March of 2009 ran a story about a couple who lost a baby because the hospital didn’t have an anesthesiologist on duty to do a C-Section!

Mail Online in January of 2008 had a story about a boy who’s been deaf for 9 years suddenly regaining his hearing because the Q-tip that was in his ear fell out, NO DOCTOR EVER CAUGHT THE PROBLEM! That’s quality health care, don’t you want that kind of health care? Obama and Pelosi want that for YOU!

And a final point here:

We are being asked to put our trust in a government run system. Let me give you some examples of OTHER government run systems:

Social Security, isn’t that going to be BROKE in 15 or so years?

Medicare, wait, didn’t they ALREADY cut 13 MILLION and 60% of home health care nurses from THAT?
Disaster Relief: (fema) These are the jerks who had a truck full of water for the residents of New Orleans after Katrina show up in Bangor Maine!!! Yeah, I totally want THEM telling my doctor what an unnecessary test is!

It comes down to these programs are full of waste, incompetence and fraud!

Liberals will argue here that Obama says it’s NOT a single payer system, I give you the groups Rochester for HR676 and Progressive Democrats they are running around telling everyone that it IS a single payer system. I tend to think Rochester for HR676 knows something the president is lying to us about. (Given Obama’s comments going back as far as 2003, and Obama’s track record of lying to us….I tend to believe Rochester)

I can find 615 of the over 1,000 pages of this bill online. I’m going through it now and will report more on what is actually in the bill as I come to it.
