“Obama challenges critics on health care” -That is the general attitude of President Obama. Because of his majority position. Clearly, his stance is not that this is the best strategy for American healthcare, but that he will do whatever he has to in order to get Congress to sign it into law.
The real point that people in America are missing is that the plan is being subtly introduced to get America to pay Medicare and Medicaid through their contributions to nationwide healthcare. The objective of this bill is to get everyone to foot that bill, a general error by government along with the adoption of Social Security, not to provide better healthcare. Both are pyramid schemes that can no longer work if the population of America is not exploding. They inherently depend on a strongly expanding population to pay off the prior generation for their existence.
There is little doubt that Social Security will be adjusted to provide less and less compensation to individuals. This is accomplished in the same way a can of tuna goes from 6 ounces to 4 ounces, but you pay the same price because the can looks the same. Government just raises the age at which you can claim full benefits or creates other roadblocks or taxes to America’s benefits from these acts to get back some of what they originally promised to deliver.
President Obama is sadly misguided in his plan to nationalize health insurance. In Canada, healthcare quality has dropped significantly and many Canadians, placed on infinite waiting lists, have sought care within the US at their own expense. In some cases, it saved their lives. Government running your healthcare program is just plain not the way you want to go. It will be inefficient and delay the overall process of receiving treatment. Do you want a government agency deciding whether you live or die?
Most of all, and we refer back to the primary premise of this article, this is purely to take the burden off the Federal Government for their failure to meet the commitments they made decades ago to Medicare and Medicaid. Their solution is to place everyone under the new nationwide health plan and eliminate Medicaid and Medicare as a governmental entitlement and obligation. But do they state that fact? Are they honest with America? Do they even care how deceitful they are being?
President Obama, so far in his tenure, has accomplished very little. The passage of a long term stimulus bill that will leave our nation a trillion dollars in debt and provide the Democratic Congress control over the nation’s purse strings for the next decade is all President Obama can place on his resume. He has been the most do-nothing President we have observed in our history.
As President Obama lights up his next cigarette while making cigarettes unaffordable for everyone else, we invite him to explain his hypocrisy and to clearly define how his healthcare plan impacts Medicare and Medicaid. When President Obama gets emphysema or cancer because of his weakness, America will pay the bill. Isn’t it wonderful to know that hypocrisy is alive and well in America and resides in our President elect?
