“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.'” RONALD REAGAN
The way Obama is trying to ram his health Care socialisation is by telling us that if Congress does not pass by the end of summer, children will die and many people
will go bankrupt—FEAR!!
If you an get by the intimidation and fear generated by Obama and look at just what the Progressive Socialists want to slip by US. You will find some of the demands,in fact most of the proposed legislation is about control!!
In a blog short enough not to turn off any potential reader. I can not list all the negatives , but I will list a few that should make you get really angry if you are not inclined to Socialism!
“CNS News editor in chief Terence Jeffrey also reports that “the legal use of tobacco products is the only vice for which insurance companies will be able to charge their customers higher premiums,” adding, “a person could have been admitted to hospitals three times for heroin overdoses, or been pregnant five times out of wedlock, or been treated for venereal diseases at least once per year for the past five years, but none of these factors could be used to charge that person a higher insurance premium.” Jeffrey further notes that the bill calls for improved immunization coverage, including the use of “reminders or recalls for patients or providers, or home visits” to accomplish it. Yes, home visits.
Those who currently have private individual coverage won’t be able to change it. Nor will those who leave a company to work for themselves be free to buy individual plans from private carriers.” Private individual coverage will be outlawed by attrition.AND YOU WILL HAVE TO PROVE TO THE IRS THAT YOU HAVE AN APPROVED HEALTH CARE PLAN OR YOU WILL BE FINED THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND ENROLLED IN THE OABAMA CARE! If you do not believe me read pages 150-156 of the plan.
To cover part of this deficiency, Democrats propose cutting tax breaks for hospitals because they don’t provide enough charitable care to earn them any longer. According to the American Hospital Directory, fewer than half of the 5,482 hospitals in the country actually pay federal, state or local taxes. That will change. Furthermore, the hospital industry agreed this week to take $155 billion less in payments from the government, leaving the money to cover the uninsured.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) added an amendment to the bill that would require all health insurance companies to provide unspecified “preventive care and screenings” for “pregnant women and individuals of child-bearing age.” Asked if this would include abortion, Mikulski sidestepped: “It would provide for any service deemed medically necessary or medically appropriate.” Source: Patriot Post
To say that this will help all Americans is nothing less than a bold faced misrepresentation! They(DEMS.) say that there are 47 million uninsured. What they do not tell you is that over 20 thousand of this group make over 50 thousand dollars year, are under 40, in good enough health that they would rather spend their money on a new car or a bigger home!
Another 12 million are illegal aliens!
Before we allow Congress to pass this heinous legislation we should look at what is happening in Tennessee. A state that tried to run a government controlled health plan.Of course the Liberals say we can run it better than the state of Tenn. but when has the Federal government run a program better? Medicare, Social Security, Amtrak, Postal Service? I think NOT!
Tennessee is in the process of cutting about 150,000 people from the TennCare program after a reevaluation of enrollee eligibility to participate in the state-run insurance program.
TennCare, the managed care Medicaid program that began in 1994, now serves about 1.2 million people in the state and has a $7 billion budget. That’s after cuts were made.
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) was a Tennessee state senator through much of the TennCare problems and believes it is a forecast of what would happen under federal health care “public option” plan. While supporters of the Tennessee program said it would save money, it wound up eating 38 percent of the state’s budget, she said.
“As a result of this, insurance rates for those who have private coverage were going through the roof,” Blackburn told a gathering at the conservative Heritage Foundation last week.Source:CNS NEWS
“There is no example that you can point to that shows where having private insurance in competition with the public option brings the costs down. It leads to exploding costs,” she said.
WE are already in debt up to our noses. Obama will take us to the drowning point!
