Report Me

Go ahead.  Here’s the link.  Report me when I say that Obamacare is just a gateway to single payer health care.  Report me when I call it socialist.  Report me for pointing out that the Congress critters have exempted themselves from the plan.

Report Atlas, report Larry Correia.

Report me when I point out that all the blathering on about keeping your current coverage is nothing more than verbal acrobatics.  Hey, it’s in the bill.

Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day” of the year the legislation becomes law.

So I can keep my coverage as long as I stay at the same job.  If I decide to start a small business and work from home, I cannot purchase an individual plan that continues the coverage that I am already receiving.

Report me for telling you that Barney Frank views the public option as a way to single-payer.  If a public option is so great, why are private care facilities booming in Canada?

Or maybe you should report anyone giving false information about it.   How about the people saying it will save money?  Or that we will get better care?  Or how about all of the people insisting that forcing another person to provide a service is a right?  Isn’t that slavery?  And yet they say that a doctor must go to school to learn how the body works and then not be compensated for his skills because health care is a right.  Hmm.  The second amendment protects my right to bear arms.  This is an actual right provided for in the Constitution.  Will Congress push for a tax or subsidy for those that cannot afford firearms?  Will they provide me a podium an audience to exercise my right to free speech?  Of course not.

Health care is not a right, it’s a need.  It is a need like food and shelter.  Those unable to provide these things for themselves are charity cases.  Our administration would do well to remember Davy Crockett’s words.

The people have delegated to Congress, by the Constitution, the power to do certain things. To do these, it is authorized to collect and pay moneys, and for nothing else. Everything beyond this is usurpation, and a violation of the Constitution.

We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right so to appropriate a dollar of the public money.

Not one dollar.  It’s not about the uninsured.  It’s about the ever-growing power being absorbed by the federal government.  They want to decide what charities are worthwhile to spend my money on.

  1. I am proud that I voted for Obama! I actually voted for Hillary in the primaries b/c I liked her healthcare plan better. But I will support the one he is proposing compared to the system we have in place today.

  2. LEAD, FOLLOW, OR GET OUT OF THE WAY. (Thomas Paine)

    We have the 37th worst quality of healthcare in the developed world. Conservative estimates are that over 120,000 of you dies each year in America from treatable illness that people in other developed countries don’t die from. Rich, middle class, and poor a like. Insured and uninsured. Men, women, children, and babies. This is what being 37th in quality of healthcare means.

    I know that many of you are angry and frustrated that REPUBLICANS! In congress are dragging their feet and trying to block TRUE healthcare reform. What republicans want is just a taxpayer bailout of the DISGRACEFUL GREED DRIVEN PRIVATE FOR PROFIT health insurance industry, and the DISGRACEFUL GREED DRIVEN PRIVATE FOR PROFIT healthcare industry. A trillion dollar taxpayer funded private health insurance bailout is all you really get without a robust government-run public option available on day one. Co-OP’s ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR A GOVERNMENT-RUN PUBLIC OPTION. They are a fraud being pushed by the GREED DRIVEN PRIVATE FOR PROFIT health insurance industry that is KILLING YOU!

    YOU CANT HAVE AN INSURANCE MANDATE WITHOUT A ROBUST PUBLIC OPTION. MANDATING PRIVATE FOR PROFIT HEALTH INSURANCE AS YOUR ONLY CHOICE WOULD BE A DISASTER AND UNETHICAL, CORRUPT, AND MORALLY REPUGNANT. AND PROBABLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL AS WELL.

    These industries have been slaughtering you and your loved ones like cattle for decades for profit. Including members of congress and their families. These REPUBLICANS are FOOLS!

    Republicans and their traitorous allies have been trying to make it look like it’s President Obama’s fault for the delays, and foot dragging. But I think you all know better than that. President Obama inherited one of the worst government catastrophes in American history from these REPUBLICANS! And President Obama has done a brilliant job of turning things around, and working his heart out for all of us.

    But Republicans think you are just a bunch of stupid, idiot, cash cows with short memories. Just like they did under the Bush administration when they helped Bush and Cheney rape America and the rest of the World.

    But you don’t have to put up with that. And this is what you can do. The Republicans below will be up for reelection on November 2, 2010. Just a little over 13 months from now. And many of you will be able to vote early. So pick some names and tell their voters that their representatives (by name) are obstructing TRUE healthcare reform. And are sellouts to the insurance and medical lobbyist.

    Ask them to contact their representatives and tell them that they are going to work to throw them out of office on November 2, 2010, if not before by impeachment, or recall elections. Doing this will give you something more to do to make things better in America. And it will make you feel better too.

    There are many resources on the internet that can help you find people to call and contact. For example, many social networking sites can be searched by state, city, or University. Be inventive and creative. I can think of many ways to do this. But be nice. These are your neighbors. And most will want to help.

    I know there are a few democrats that have been trying to obstruct TRUE healthcare reform too. But the main problem is the Bush Republicans. Removing them is the best thing tactically to do. On the other hand. If you can easily replace a democrat obstructionist with a supportive democrat, DO IT!

    You have been AMAZING!!! my people. Don’t loose heart. You knew it wasn’t going to be easy saving the World. 🙂

    God Bless You

  3. Both my chiropractor and my psychiatrist are in favor of Obama and national health care.

    I wonder if they’ll be so happy about it when they’re getting paid government rates . . .

    Tri[andGet]Care (military health insurance) doesn’t even support chiropractors outside the military care facilities. And I’m sure TriCare pays my psychiatrist in a timely fashion and at a competitive rate </sarcasm>

  4. As usual we are being fed a bunch of bull****. Obama said in 2003 he wanted a single payer health care system. He was recently asked if he and his family were going to enroll in the plan he proposes and he said “No, he wants the best for his family”. What does that say about how he feels about the rest of us. He is a liar and an arrogant piece of SH*T.

  5. I would also like to say that I am on medicare and Tricare for life. I got to pick my doctor, and I have yet to be denied coverage to a specialist. We will not have this with Obama’s plan. I have a feeling that once some of these people who are supporting this puke will wake up and say Holy SH*T what have we done?

  6. The idea of government provided health care scares the hell out of me. I wrote about an experience I had yesterday with my HMO care…normally great, but one department is giving me a preview of what gov’t care will be like. NO thank you!!!

  7. I love people like Obamicon. He knows nothing about the health care industry, hasn’t bothered to do any research on it but automatically knows that anything the government gives us will be better.

    How do I know that Obamicon has done zero research? Because I worked the healthcare industry for many years. First I worked the private side of it and then the workers comp side.

    Do you know how the government saves money on healthcare? They tell the doctors “We’re only going to pay you 40% of charges.” So, a doctor does his job, has lab fees that he has to pay for because of the test that had to be run; has to pay for all the insurance he needs for when he gets sued because someone has a illness that he was supposed to magically cure (but can’t) and the government’s response is essentially tough shit, suck it up.

    So, what has to be done to make up the lost revenue that he should have received from that medicare patient? Why it gets passed over to the private side in increased fees. Yep, you want to know why your medical costs keep going up you can look right across the aisle at the government and medicare.

    So, what happens when the government runs the whole show and doctors can’t choose to NOT take medicare or Obamacare patients? Why I do believe that rather than get screwed again and again they will most likely walk away and do something else for a living – something that doesn’t require government money.

    I don’t know how many doctors I talked with on the phone who decided that it wasn’t worth it anymore and walked away because of the bureaucratic BS they were forced to endure from the government.

    But hey, Obamicon, it will all be better once Obama is running it since he will be passing out unicorns and lollipops, right?

    Fucking tool.

  8. One of the reasons health care is so expensive is because we either pay for insurance or pay out of pocket and the illegal immigrants don’t pay anything and we pay for it all. Refuse care to illegals and the cost of the insurance will go down, and so will the costs of office visits, emergency room visits, etc. Illegals are draining our pockets, and the elected officials don’t care.

  9. Agreed Madalyn.

    But hey, you know, all those rich people should pay for everything we want.

    I mean really, what else are they going to do with their money? Invest it in start-up businesses? expand their own business and hire more people? Buy stuff which will put money in the pockets of other businesses that they can use to, oh – hire more people?

    Naw, they should be giving all that cash to the government instead to take care of us… yeah…
