But, Hey! The Communists Love It!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
I am asked, occasionally, why I harp on ObamaCare so much. The answer is simple. America was sold a bill of goods. I should probably qualify that last statement. Only those Americans who bought into the idea of Obamacare, as Obama and the liberal-socialists who make up the modern Democratic Party presented it, were hoodwinked. Most of us who are clear-thinking adult human beings saw through the scam from the beginning and warned and warned and warned against it. We TOLD you what it was -- and is -- and we told you what it would do to America, as a whole, and to you and I as individuals.
Many did not believe us, choosing, instead, to believe they could have something for nothing -- when the truth is – THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH! Everything costs something and in the case of ObamaCare the cost is the freedom of the American people.
ObamaCare is a lie, one of the biggest lies ever told the American people and one of
the biggest lies/hoaxes ever perpetrated upon any nation on the globe. It was -- and is -- a grand “CON.” It is founded on Marxism and is, in fact, Socialism. But it is more than that – much more. It brings America to the threshold of becoming a police state.
In an editorial piece at the Washington Examiner entitled “Obamacare is even worse than critics thought” the writer says the following: “Six months ago, President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rammed Obamacare down the throats of an unwilling American public. Half a year removed from the unprecedented legislative chicanery and backroom dealing that characterized the bill's passage, we know much more about the bill than we did then. A few of the revelations:
Obamacare won't decrease health care costs for the government. According to Medicare's actuary, it will increase costs. The same is likely to happen for privately funded health care.
As written, Obamacare covers elective abortions, contrary to Obama's promise that it wouldn't. This means that tax dollars will be used to pay for a procedure millions of Americans across the political spectrum view as immoral.
Obamacare won't allow employees or most small businesses to keep the coverage they have and like. By Obama's estimates, as many as 69 percent of employees, 80 percent of small businesses, and 64 percent of large businesses will be forced to change coverage, probably to more expensive plans.
Obamacare will increase insurance premiums -- in some places, it already has. Insurers, suddenly forced to cover clients' children until age 26, have little choice but to raise premiums, and they attribute to Obamacare's mandates a 1 to 9 percent increase. Obama's only method of preventing massive rate increases so far has been to threaten insurers.
Obamacare will force seasonal employers -- especially the ski and amusement park industries -- to pay huge fines, cut hours, or lay off employees.
Obamacare forces states to guarantee not only payment but also treatment for indigent Medicaid patients. With many doctors now refusing to take Medicaid (because they lose money doing so), cash-strapped states could be sued and ordered to increase reimbursement rates beyond their means.
Obamacare imposes a huge nonmedical tax compliance burden on small business. It will require them to mail IRS 1099 tax forms to every vendor from whom they make purchases of more than $600 in a year, with duplicate forms going to the Internal Revenue Service. Like so much else in the 2,500-page bill, our senators and representatives were apparently unaware of this when they passed the measure.
Obamacare allows the IRS to confiscate part or all of your tax refund if you do not purchase a qualified insurance plan. The bill funds 16,000 new IRS agents to make sure Americans stay in line. (SOURCE) We suggest you read the article at the Washington Examiner in its entirety.
ObamaCare is socialized medicine through and through. In an article posted on April 4th, 2010 by Austin Miles at Great Minds Think Right.Com and entitled “We did it!” Communist Party Newspaper on Obamacare” Mr. Austin says the following: “The People’s World is a direct descendant of the old Communist newspaper, the Daily Worker, first issue published by Long View Publishing Co.in1924. Like The Daily Worker, People’s World states that they, “are unashamedly Communist.” They acknowledge their affiliation with the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and the Young Communist League. When Obamacare was rammed through, the People’s World proclaimed, “We did it! Yesterday’s historic vote on health reform sets the stage for future victories.” Catch that? WE (The Communist Party) did it!...and sets the stage for future victories, which means of course, Marxism for America.” (SOURCE)
According to a recent Rasmussen Poll 61% of US voters favor repeal of ObamaCare. (SOURCE) Rasmussen also says: “A strong majority (60%) feel that under the new law, the cost of health care will go up. Only 13% say costs will go down, and 18% say they will stay about the same.” (SOURCE)
As we were writing this commentary we learned the President has contacted a number of religious organizations and asked them to help sell ObamaCare to their parishioners and members, etc. I cannot speak for you, but if my pastor were to take to the pulpit and begin to expound upon the benefits of ObamaCare for me and for the country, I’d leave the pew and head for the door! (Where are the “separation of church and state” zealots now, huh?)
What we have, dear reader, is a socialist government in power in Washington D. C. It must be excised just as one rids one’s body of a cancerous tumor. If it is not removed from our body politic it will kill it as surely as that cancerous tumor will kill the human body.
Thank goodness, surgery is scheduled for November second.
