President Obama is trying to push ObamaCare through Congress before the House and the Senate go home for the August recess. In 15 days?
Mr. Obama has tried mightily to make us think that the Democrats’ Health Care Plan must be passed right now. That it is so urgent to control spiraling costs that we really don’t have time to discuss it or debate it, or even find out what the hell in in the bill! But “urgent” is a lie, and “spiraling costs” are a lie as well.
They are trying to do it again. The Stimulus Bill was so urgent that nobody had time to read it— Congress had to get those funds out into the economy to keep the unemployment rate from reaching 8 percent. It’s now over 20 percent in Oregon, Michigan and California. There were all those “shovel ready” infrastructure projects just waiting for a “go”. Except that was all a lie.
There weren’t many shovel ready projects, and the jobs were reserved for the union members who financed Obama’s campaign. Only a small part of the stimulus funds have been spent — there wasn’t any rush, since most of the funds won’t be spent until next year, just before the mid- term elections. $787 billion!
Then there was cap-and-trade, the utterly stupid climate change bill that had to be passed in a big rush to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, except that was a lie too.
Wind and solar produce electricity, a very small amount of electricity, which has nothing whatsoever to do with foreign oil — which powers our transportation. The bill will enrich some large corporations, kill millions more jobs and raise the cost of living for all of us. It’s about QUICK!! LOOK OVER THERE!!! As they try to distract you from what they are really doing — which is just a raw grab for power.
Now they want to push through the biggest change Americans have ever seen in their health care, from a consultative relationship with your doctor, to a socialist relationship ordered and determined by faceless bureaucrats in Washington. The House’s “Health Care for All Americans” bill appeared yesterday when the 1,018 page bill first appeared in public. As Investor’s Business Daily says: “Right there on Page 16 is a provision making individual private medical insurance illegal.” So that whole thing about ” If you like the health insurance you have, you’ll be able to keep it” that Obama promised —that was a lie too.
The nonpartisan Lewin group estimated in April that 120 million or more Americans could lose their coverage at work, and would end up in a public program. Which would cause the market for private insurance to gradually die out. “What wasn’t known,” IBD says, “is that the bill itself will kill the market for private individual coverage by not letting any new policies be written after the public option becomes law.”
The legislation will also probably mean the end of health savings accounts — something that has been a Democrat aim for years.
This is a straightforward advance of soft tyranny. Free people should be outraged. And Congress has excused themselves from participating in it in any way.
Michael Moore claims at the beginning of the video that Canadian Health Care is free. That, like most of his other pronouncements, is just another lie. We’re only beginning to realize the extent and consequences of all the lies.
