ObamaCare, due to be snuck back to the Senate hidden amongst 17 votes taken in the House today, will fix everything that’s wrong with health care in America.
Demorats would have you believe ObamaCare will not, as the President said yesterday, “solve every single problem in our health care system right away.” Of course, Demorats would also have you believe that solving 2 out 15,387 problems in our health care system is everything we need.
Demorats would have you believe ObamaCare will save you money! Of course, Demorats would also have you believe the $930 billion extra coming out of your paycheck is actually a bonus.
Demorats would have you believe ObamaCare will cure what ails you! Of course, Demorats would also have you believe an Emergency Room wait until 2014 is just fine.
Demorats would have you believe ObamaCare will save you money! Of course, Demorats would also have you believe twice as many people covered costs half as much. After all, Medicare provided health care coverage for 45 million Americans in 2008. Without any eligibility rules changes, enrollment is expected nearly to double to 78 million by 2030 although the number of workers paying in to Medicare each year from now until then will remain nearly the same. I guess it is the economy of scale.
Demorats would have you believe ObamaCare will cure what ails you right now! Of course, Demorats would also have you believe that their rush to passage has nothing to do with 65% of their constituents who want real reform rather than ObamaCare.
Demorats would have you believe ObamaCare will save you money! Of course, Demorats would also have you believe 12,000 new IRS employees will work for free. Medicare will spend $452 billion or 12.5% of the federal budget on care this year. Medicare is expected to cost $6.4 trillion from now until 2019 or 14.8% of the federal budget for the period.
Demorats would have you believe ObamaCare will be free of all special interest deals like the Cornhusker Kickback to states and insurance companies. Of course, Demorats would also have you believe Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska) is the Good Fairy.
Demorats would have you believe ObamaCare can take $522 billion out of Medicare by cutting waste and fraud to save you money! Of course, Demorats would also have you believe we need fewer jail cells because criminals will behave if we ask them nicely.
Demorats would have you believe the Social Security Trust Fund can underwrite ObamaCare to the tune of $71 billion. Of course, Demorats would also have you believe the increase in cost of living last year didn’t affect seniors because they have a fixed income.
Demorats would have you believe the new $50 billion long-term ObamaCare insurance premium isn’t a cost increase. Of course, Demorats would also have you believe they’ll never have to pay out $50 billion for long-term care because those costs will not come before 2020.
Demorats would have you believe doctors who already receive less than a quarter of what they bill will accept $371 billion less for their services under ObamaCare. Of course, Demorats would also have you believe a quarter of doctors or more won’t just drop taking Medicare patients when this cut occurs.
Demorats would have you believe the $210 billion new ObamaCare tax on investment income will help the economy. Of course, Demorats would also have you believe the Moon is made of blue cheese.
Drop your drawers and bend over the examining table, America. Demorats would have you believe this won’t hurt a bit.
I’m right there on your page, Dick. I’m amazed that they have the gall to force this down our throats like this.
If this bill passes (and I’m guessing it will or these sleazy buggers wouldn’t vote), all we can hope is that all the frickin’ pro-Healthcare-Bill Dems will be thrown out of Congress and that the new Congress will repeal the law in 2 years.
The tactics that Nancy Pelosi and Company use are blatantly counter to what the majority of all Americans want. How dare they pat us on our heads and tell us to sit still for these policies!
I had enough of that in Catholic school.
Thanks for this post. You make a ton of sense, as usual.
I spoke to Grosspapa Poleczech today and told him what the democrats did. His reaction was over the top:
“Gezatz an dem Farbrangeholdenkeitisch Friggenduppers!”
TRANSLATION: “A blistering pox be upon those yellow-livered f**Kheads.”
Of course I deleted the insulting reference to all their mothers so it would conform to this blog’s decorum; but the gist seems to be in accord with the feelings of every real American.
You democrats have really stepped in it this time.
HR3590 has passed. It had a huge margin of 219 to 212. The “Reconciliation Bill,” coming now, means nothing now because the Senate bill goes straight to the President for his signature. Suckers. The sound you hear is your freedom vacuumed out of your wallets.
If you haven’t already seen it, I thought you all would most appreciate this:
The Cornhusker bribe didnt make the final version of the bill but other special interest deals remain. Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Kickbackland) announced today that he will vote against the House Reconciliation bill, making it more likely that the Senate bill and the Senate bill alone becomes law.
That way the Senate can screw both the House and We the TaxPaying People with a single thrust.
Congressional Demorats are furious that insurers disagreed with the Congressional spin on the law. In fact, Congressional Demorats are posturing and thundering and blustering and being outraged.
