I found this post while researching information so that I am more informed and not some media robot spewing out the same ol’crap…this is worth the read!
Stop Obama health care plan – call NOW!!
One thing no one seems to mention when ranting and raving about our “broken” health care system is that everyone ends up getting the care they need.
Well, actually, almost everyone – *see footnote below*
No insurance? No citizenship? No worries. Just take your kids to the local emergency room – which is legally bound not to turn you away – and set the public meter running for treating an earache or cold.
No insurance? Homeless? Alcohol problem? Just call 911 for a free ride to a clean bed and warm meal – a la Ricky Alardo, who has run up an estimated 3.9 million tab – paid for by taxpayers.
With four kids with disabilities – and eight without – I’ve seen my share of NICUs, ICUs and ERs. And I’ve seen a lot of disadvantaged people receive EXACTLY the same care my family received. The only difference was that since we had insurance, we had to pay copays – and they didn’t.
On March 3, I reported on Rahm Emanuel’s game plan: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before….”
So for months, the American public has been whipped into shape by CRISIS AFTER CRISIS, so the Obama Regime can Rahm ram through thousands of pages of unread legislation larded with political paybacks and power grabs which will prolong the crisis and leave us more stripped, dependent and vulnerable than ever.
Using emotionally manipulative propaganda like the following DNC ad, they get a dumbed-down culture on their side: BTW…My take on this video, which is separate from the woman who wrote this, is how pathetic. First, did they actually pay money for this and second, really? You lose your job and have no income you do qualify for medicaid. If your child has extreme disabilities, you qualify for medicare if not medicaid…..come on, this commerical is a FARCE!
Love how at the end the announcer intones “The Democratic National Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising.”
Excuse me? What content?????? Just another propaganda scare piece to numb the proletariat to the socialist/marxist juggernaut taking place while the Government media keeps us up to date on Michael Jackson and the aftermath of his demise.
Lost in this ObamaHype is the fact that the US has the best health care in the world, as evidenced by our lower mortality rates:
* There is a 90% survival rate in the USA for five cancers – breast, prostate, thyroid, testicular and melanoma.
* In Europe, only ONE, testicular cancer, has a 90% survival rate.
From Why is Government Health Insurance Good Only for Some? which I will post next.
Tell me the truth: If you found you had breast cancer or prostate cancer, can you think of any other country you’d rather be in? Think this through, folks. Why destroy the world’s best health care system because a bunch of Marxists tell us we have to “fix” it with a plan that seems like bringing in a sledgehammer to fix a headache?
And then there is the cost. . . . which O&Co are trying to convince us will come only from the super-wealthy. C’mon, folks, the super-wealthy find ways to shield their money from taxes. It’s the middle class that always ends up footing the bill – often in secretive unofficial taxes slipped in under our noses. Looked at your phone bill recently? I don’t know about yours, but mine has extra charges adding up to 15% these days.
I heard a caller from Belgium on Laura Ingraham yesterday. When asked how government-controlled health care for all was working there, he answered that they had a 21% sales tax (21%!!!) and that they were not allowed to get second opinions.
Obama is fond of saying “Do not believe those who oppose this measure” or “Don’t let them scare ya.” So much like a cult leader – beginning each speech with Us vs. Them. Gathering some nurses as a backdrop for a speech and then claiming his regime has the “Nurses’ Support” while the Government Media obediently ties in the American Nurses Association pre-election endorsement. Excuse me again? There are a few dots missing here – I mean, did the ANA vote or even do a survey of its membership? How dare they associate the ANA with this piece of politics???
And like everything else – the crisis, the urgency, the sky is falling if we don’t do this NOW!!!
Obama also says the other side does not have a plan. NOT TRUE!!! See the Heritage Foundation for dozens of articles analyzing and suggesting modifications which do not involve government takeover or risk to the high standards of care we not enjoy.
Tell them enough is enough and they better vote no on this one or face the music in 2010! If we still have elections, that is. . . . . .
*Oh, and btw, we already have fully-controlled Government Health Care in the US. It’s found on Indian reservations, where money runs out and sick people are denied services – in some cases leading to unnecessary and untimely deaths. See Promises, Promises: Indian Health Care’s victims
Is that really what we want for our families?
