Promises! Who believes Obama's plan will not raise the deficit?
1. Promises! Promises!? President Obama
said in his speech on Health Care, "The bill will not add one dime to the deficit." Who believes that? Rudy
Giuliani said on FOX, "How
are we going to pay for it? - The biggest question and the hole is that Obama
says his plan will be deficit neutral, will not add a dime to the deficit. The
Congressional Budget Office disagrees." Our deficit is already out of control with
all the spending since Obama has taken office. How can you include 30 million more
patients and it not cost more?
2. How can
you have major cuts to Medicare without drastic rationing? The left has charged misinformation and charges of using
the catch phrase "Death Panels." With too few doctors, if you are denied care
or procedures because of your age, that is rationing. One bill called for paying doctors to sit down
with patients to discuss end of life decisions. Americans fear these so
called "death panels" similar to the end of life discussions in the VA manual.
3. Public option. Obama claims
only 5 % will use the public option. Bogus- Giuliani said it will be far
greater than 5 %. If your employer drops you because the fine is cheaper than
the cost of coverage, you will have to go to the public option, which
is government controlled.
said, "The public option is only a means to that end and we should remain
open to other ideas that accomplish our
ultimate goals." What are their ultimate goals? a single payer, government
run system-government run health care.
5. Did you
know that the proposed plan will not take effect until 2013, but we will start paying for it in Jan. 2010? 4 months away!
6. Comity? Senator Pelosi has compared the
angry citizens at Townhall meetings to Nazis. Other words they were
called, un American, a Mob. Obama said if you question the
bill, "I will call out!" Obama charges "misinformation, scary
stories, tall tales, bogus claims, partisan bickering, demagoguery &
distortion." Obama charged others with lying and misinformation in his
speech. Congressman Joe Wilson stood up to him and said "You lie," when Pres.
Obama said illegals would not be covered. A little of the same medicine! I
applaud Congressman Wilson - one
small voice that went around the world. In 2005, the democrats
booed Pres Bush when he spoke before Congress. Fair play if you ask me.
7. The plan calls for Penalties for those who don't get
insurance. America stands for freedom, not coercion. We demand Congress sign up for the exact plan they are proposing we
8. Obama claims care for illegal immigrants is not included in
the bill. That is a bogus claim, because they have already voted down an amendment
that would require verification of citizenship. Illegals are already treated in
our hospital emergency rooms dramatically driving up the cost of health care. We
need immigration reform! If Obama grants amnesty, these millions will be
included in the public option.
9. Include tort reform. Keep lawyers out of the examining rooms. Cap
amounts to sue for medical malpractice. Frivolous law suits drive up costs, 1/4
of the practice of medicine is defensive- Gov. Tim Pawlenty said there is a
proposal that each law suit must include an affidavit by another doctor saying
that there are grounds for a lawsuit. Obama wants to test tort reform. Let's
see what Congress does and hold them accountable
What We Want
1. Keep health care costs down.
2. Keep government out of the health
care business. Demand Congress sign up for the exact plan they are proposing we
3. Any bill must include tort reform.
4. We want Democrats & Republicans
to work together on a bill. Why have Republicans been left out since
5. Health Insurance should be able
to compete across state lines.
6. Don't deny care because of
7. Include Portability if you lose
8. Encourage savings accts for
9. If there are ways to improve Medicare,
$500 billion in waste? Do it now, even before a bill is not passed!
10. No Federal Funding for abortion.
"No public plan is forbidden from covering abortion." The wording is confusing.
What does that mean? It leaves open the option.
Congress does listen to the American people. Contact them today and express
your views. They will listen or vote them out! And thank God, Congress spent
money on the War on Terror to keep us safe. We have not been attacked since
