Because none of us can bear to read through the 1,000 page healthcare bill, I thought you'd enjoy some highlights because if you really knew what was in the current bill you would realize why so many people are up in arms against it.
Here's a few points that disturb me because It's really draconian if you think about it.
1. The Government will have direct access to your bank account and can take money when they want.
2. Government committees will decide what type of healthcare and how much of what they assign you will receive per year.
3. Organizations like Acorn will receive payment and it's a subsidy to unions too.
4. You will have no choice whether or not you're enrolled in Medicaid.
5. No judicial review against the monopoly of the Government and no company can sue the Government for price fixing.
6. Doctors & AMA - the Government will tell you how much money you can make and every doctor, regardless of specialty will receive the same amount of money.
7. All you small business owners out there? You will be required to pay for part-timers healthcare benefits too. And you will be taxed if you don't.
8. And young people? If you're not insured you will be taxed an additional 2.5% above all the rest of the taxes you pay because you're a bad, bad, bad young person and not taking care of your health like you should.
There's a whole lot more BS, but I'll let you watch the video for yourself because they give you page and line quotes to back up what we've all been saying all along.
It's the wrong bill, at the wrong time.
Watch the video! The truth shall set you free!
Nothing Obama, nor Reid, nor Pelosi or anyone can do now will get it to pass as it currently is. And I'm not the only one saying this. Barney Frank anyone? I love this guy sometimes, rarely, but sometimes. Especially when he says:
'I have two reactions to the election in Massachusetts. One, I am disappointed. Two, I feel strongly that the Democratic majority in Congress must respect the process and make no effort to bypass the electoral results.
If Martha Coakley had won, I believe we could have worked out a reasonable compromise between the House and Senate health care bills. But since Scott Brown has won and the Republicans now have 41 votes in the Senate, that approach is no longer appropriate.
I am hopeful that some Republican Senators will be willing to discuss a revised version of health care reform because I do not think that the country would be well-served by the health care status quo.
But our respect for democratic procedures must rule out any effort to pass a health care bill as if the Massachusetts election had not happened.'
STOP SHOVING IT DOWN OUR THROATS! It's the economy! Stop your personal agenda and start listening to the people.
We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it any more!
And if you don't believe me, read this media watchdog site: What the Liberal Media Aren't Telling You About Obama's Healthcare Plans
Okay, time to get off my soapbox. Nothing like a little political rhetoric to start the day right.
If even one person reads this and is educated, it's worth it. If any politicians read this and back out of their support, then it's worth it too. God hear our prayers.:)
