It’s one thing to propose true reform of the part(s) that are broken within our Health Care system. It is quite another to propose even more spending and a total wipe out of all that is good with the system we have, in trade for more cost (Just ask the CBO), less quality care and less choice.
Of course those that are pushing this so-called reform claim that there will be more choice, lower costs and that everyone can keep their current insurance if they are happy with it.
I wave the bullshit flag.
With the current systems limited number of medical professionals already stretched thin, how will they absorb more people? How much time, will each patient merit and who will decide that? (Maybe that’s what one of those czars are for?)
Putting a bigger burden on an already fragile medicare/medicaid system that is at it’s limits is idiotic. Not to mention chock full of fraud. Fraud that never gets taken care of so costs can be reduced, I might add. With more people ‘on the dole’ what the hell do they think will happen then? Lower costs and less fraud? I don’t think so. With the way Govt. runs things (i.e. The Postal System, Social Security) it’s sure to be one giant cluster-fuck of debt, more fraud and even more people being denied care because the system just can’t carry the financial burden of caring for so many people.
As for people being able to keep their own insurance..yeah right…We live in a profit driven (for now anyhow) society, and when business owners count pennies, they’ll find in most cases paying that so-called ‘penalty’ for not providing health insurance to their employess is cheaper than providing it, so all those folks will be forced into the public system, whether they like it or not.
It may be just business, looking out for one’s bottom line and a bigger profit, but it’s down right disgraceful. You can’t claim that you like your employees, if you throw them under the bus in that way. The Govt. knows this too, which is why (In my humble opinion) they set the penalty fine so low, as to induce employers to drop their currently provided coverage, thus giving the Govt even more control and the ability to claim high numbers of people flocking to their newly “reformed” system. What wonderful news spin that will be!
But if you’re like me and many others who do not like this “reform” being pushed up our asses and have had the courage (and the Constitutional Right) to voice your opposition, you are now called “astroturf, politcal terrorists and un-American” by some politicians and even by some so-called journalists. It seems those politicians have forgotten they are paid to serve us, We The People. They are not paid to call us names or lamblast us for speaking our minds. They work for us, damnit! They also might start reading the damn bills before they vote them into law. So much for ‘Mr. Change’ and his Administrations transparency & time given to read the bills, etc.
It is all a bunch of crap. He’s no different than any other megalomaniacal leader. He seems to believe his words are truth just by them coming out of his mouth. (and when his ass is caught in a lie, the claim is just that “he misspoke”-BULLSHIT & LIES!)
Congress seems to think that we the people are to cluseless to know what’s best for us and shouldn’t think too much for ourselves.
It’s senseless to totally scrap the whole system when only parts of it need fixed.
It’s not “broken”, like is claimed. Those pushing this “reform” merely want more control of the people and how they live.
Those that know this down deep within their guts are those that are speaking out. Those that don’t, or just blindly follow the leader and his congressional minions will surely be the last to know that they’ve been lied to. That is, if they ever take their blinders off at all.
For those folks that want to send me comments that I am a racist, or I fear change and that is why I do not like the proposed reform, you are flat out wrong.
I Do Not think we need a total reform of the health care system. I do not want someone on some panel, or congress or a Czar to make my medical choices for me. What happens to my body is up to me. It’s my choice. (Now where are all those pro-choice people…)
To those screaming that “health care is a right”…You are wrong. It’s not a right, nor is having your own home for that matter. Read the Constitution and The Bill Of Rights for yourself if you don’t believe me. Things in life are earned.
Sometimes in life, no matter what you do or how well you do it, you end up getting the shit end of the stick compared to someone elses lot in life. That doesn’t make life unjust or unfair. It’s just life. Stop wanting “Big Brother” to take care of your every damn need, and for the Govt. to “level the playing field”. Life is tough, get the fuck used to it .
Authors note: The heath care reform talk is now being called insurance reform, to demonize yet another big business in hopes that the people will blindly follow if there is someone to rally against.
Use your right to speak freely…If you don’t speak up for yourself, who will?
