And it's about time people started paying attention to the shenanigans going on in government. This health care bill is a good one to get involved in, as it starts paying NOW, and it doesn't start until 2013. How will the government pay for it? Raising taxes - printing more money - rationing care. Those are your choices. Want to hear some gems?
The government has the power to determine what is a medical condition and the power to decide who can enter a hospital - by a panel. Allows the government to expand this without federal commission. Anyone caught without acceptable insurance and not covered by government insurance will pay the fine. IRS will be involved in fines. What is acceptable coverage? The bill defines acceptable coverage. Setting a minimum 70%, no room for catastrophic coverage anymore! Will it destroy private health insurance? You can still buy private plan, but businesses (8-10 people) have to pay an additional 8-10% payroll tax if they don't carry insurance. Guess which is cheaper for the business? The penalty. So lots of people will lose their coverage.
By the way, when Obama said he was not for single-payer health insurance, in the fake town hall meeting he just had yesterday (again another fake one!),in front of an SEIU New Leadership Health Care Forum on March 24, 2007, said, "My commitment is to make sure that we have universal healthcare for all Americans by the end of my first term as President." Huh.. and in 2003, he also mentioned something about this, when he was running for the US Senate: “I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer health care program.” He adds, “We may not get there immediately." and then went on that Dems had to get in control first. Guess what.. they're in control now.
I was listening to the radio this morning, and it was mentioned something about the emperor's new clothes. They're not really there. If Obama said he wasn't really there while standing there, there would be bets in Vegas that the people that voted for him would be saying "he's not really there! I don't see him!"
The left is trying to make out the people that are coming out to these town halls as 'astroturfers', fake angry people. Funny, that's what THEY do. They're the people who go out and protest. We're the nice people who stay home and wonder what the hell is going on! Now that we are protesting, they can't believe their eyes and ears. Notice that violence did not start until Obama urged his supporters to get out there and contend with these "troublemakers".
Oh yes.. and the left is also advertising on Craigslist for people to show up at townhall meetings, paying money for them to come and shout down "the complainers". Speaking of the complainers, what made me think of that phrase, was a poster that was shown on television, a very simple poster, from a time that I have studied, from late 1800s on.. our monetary policy seems to be starting that way, but not yet going that way.. and *hush, we can't talk about them being they killed 6 million plus, never mind that they were big government people, and progressives* HERE is a video showing the poster. And doesn't it seem like what is going on nowadays? except the eugenics.. and that was from the progressives, which are in charge now.
