We have roughly 30 days to kill socialized medicine in the United States. The ObamaCare enthusiasts are pulling out all the stops, during the month of August to push whatever their healthcare overhaul FINALLY turns out to be.
You see, even the Obama Administration and the democrats on Capitol Hill have NO IDEA, at this point, exactly what their “healthcare” bill will include and what it will exclude. They have been jumping around all over the healthcare map, like fleas on a hotplate, trying, desperately, to come up with something, anything, the American people will swallow hard and accept. Problem is… the American people simply don’t want what they are selling! But the democrats are frightened, witless, that their new president is about to get his first “slap-down” by the electorate and the democrat/socialists are desperate to prevent that. If ObamaCare can be stopped, it will be a great victory for Amereicans who want no part of socialized medicine in the United States… plus, it would be a tremendous embarrassment for Obama. Even Republican Congressman Jim DeMint, of South Carolina, claims it could be Obama’s Waterloo! Now, that IS embarrassing!
So, the plain truth is – neither Obama or his henchman on Capitol Hill have any idea what will be in the bill when they finally manage to scrape something together they can get enough votes in both the House of Representatives and the Senate to pass and send to the President for his signature.
Now, here’s the thing: During the next month, or so, primarily August, they will be back home back-slapping and glad-handing and trying, like crazy, to get you to support a bill the contents of which they haven’t a clue! In other words, the democrats and Obama are now at the point in their Socialized Medicine threat of trying to sell America what we in the Carolinas would refer to as a “Pig-in-a-Poke”. Interpreted that means simply, you can tell something is in the bag, but you have no idea what it is. It could be a pig or a polecat! And… you don’t get to find out which it is - until after you buy the bag!
Get ready for the letters, the phone calls, and the knocks on the door, the TV and radio ads, and the columns and articles in the newspapers and, of course on the Internet boosting ObamaCare during the month of August because they are going to be pouring it on.
If we are to kill this socialized medicine, we are going to have to meet them blow for blow. We have to tell our Congresspersons and our senators that if they are so weak as to vote for ObamaCare they can forget about our vote next time they stand for re-election. Help them understand they can expect an early retirement from the nation’s legislature.
You must remember that, first and foremost, the Obama Administration is going to force you to have health insurance, whether you want it or not. It is called the “Individual Mandate.” Yes, dear reader, this bill will affect EVERY American, healthy or sick, young or old. It will make no difference.
Finally, dear reader, ask yourself if anyone in the government has seriously looked at the C O S T of ObamaCare. We are talking about a government takeover of approximately 1/5th to 1/6th of thr nation's economy! The latest number I have seen tossed about was 1-1/2 TRILLION dollars in cost to you and I , the taxpayers of America, over the next ten years. Now, stop and think about the billons and trillions the recession bailouts and loans, and whatever else the government has spent our money for in the past few months and then add this trillion and a half to the top if that pile of debt Americans will have to pay off. Remember, that trillion and a half is not a one time payout. It goes on and on and on and gets larger and larger and larger.
