Nuke Socialized Health Scare Now

Shipmates, Friends, Families and Business Associates:

The U.S. Congress is planning to vote next week (week of November 2, 2009) on our healthcare. Speaker Pelosi announced last Thursday, October 29, 2009 that she will be pursuing a public, socialized, healthcare “OPTION” that will amount to the largest take-over of any private sector industry in American history – our health .

Make no mistake – this is an egregious power, money and liberty confiscation.  It is nothing short of tyranny in America. It is authored, sponsored and covertly being implemented by the most radical, un-Constitutional group of people to ever govern this Land. You know their names. You know their games. You know their shames. 

I’m asking all of my family, friends, business associates and email contacts to immediatly advise their U.S. Congresspeople  to vote NO on this legislation. Further, I’m asking you to tell your politicians that you intend to vote ANY Congressional member “off the island” who votes for the pending Pelosi/Reid/Frank/Obama-sponsored tax “reform” bill.

 This one thousand, nine-hundred page behemoth is an un-Constitutional assault on our individual liberties. At its very core, this is nothing short of a new government-mandated healthcare bureaucracy forcing all citizens to “OPT” for mandatory healthcare – or face penalties thru new taxation or possible imprisonment. 

Further, the legislation is deemed insolvent (bankrupt) by the Congessional Budget Office this week. It is not  a  sustainable program without further taxation on the providers and recipients (me and you).

Here are some excerpts from the Bill that are frightening:

Page 94—Section 202(c) prohibits the sale of private individual health insurance policies, beginning in 2013, forcing individuals to purchase coverage through the federal government

Page 110—Section 222(e) requires the use of federal dollars to fund abortions through the government-run health plan—and, if the Hyde Amendment were ever not renewed, would require the plan to fund elective abortions

Page 111—Section 223 establishes a new board of federal bureaucrats (the “Health Benefits Advisory Committee”) to dictate the health plans that all individuals must purchase —and would likely require all Americans to subsidize and purchase plans that cover any abortion

Page 211—Section 321 establishes a new government-run health plan that, according to non-partisan actuaries at the Lewin Group, would cause as many as 114 million Americans to lose their existing coverage

Page 225—Section 330 permits—but does not require—Members of Congress to enroll in government-run health care

Page 255—Section 345 includes language requiring verification of income for individuals wishing to receive federal health care subsidies under the bill—while the bill includes a requirement for applicants to verify their citizenship, it does not include a similar requirement to verify applicants’ identity, thus encouraging identity fraud for undocumented immigrants and others wishing to receive taxpayer-subsidized health benefits

Page 297—Section 501 imposes a 2.5 percent tax on all individuals who do not purchase “bureaucrat-approved” health insurance— the tax would apply on individuals with incomes under $250,000, thus breaking a central promise of then-Senator Obama’s presidential campaign

Page 313—Section 512 imposes an 8 percent “tax on jobs” for firms that cannot afford to purchase “bureaucrat-approved” health coverage ; according to an analysis by Harvard Professor Kate Baicker, such a tax would place millions “at substantial risk of unemployment”—with minority workers losing their jobs at twice the rate of their white counterparts

Page 336—Section 551 imposes additional job-killing taxes, in the form of a half-trillion dollar “surcharge,” more than half of which will hit small businesses ; according to a model developed by President Obama’s senior economic advisor, such taxes could cost up to 5.5 million jobs

Page 520—Section 1161 cuts more than $150 billion from Medicare Advantage plans, potentially jeopardizing millions of seniors’ existing coverage

Page 733—Section 1401 establishes a new Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research; the bill includes no provisions preventing the government-run health plan from using such research to deny access to life-saving treatments on cost grounds, similar to Britain’s National Health Service, which denies patient treatments costing more than $35,000

Page 1174—Section 1802(b) includes provisions entitled “TAXES ON CERTAIN INSURANCE POLICIES” to fund comparative effectiveness research, breaking Speaker Pelosi’s promise that “We will not be taxing [health] benefits in any bill that passes the House,” and the President’s promise not to raise taxes on families with incomes under $250,000

This Congress continues its treasonous spending spree that has pushed our national debt to $12 TRILLION dollars. The Nation is as bankrupt financially, as its Leaders are morally.

 This Congress continues to recklessly promote insolvent health ”scare” legislation which has NOTHING to do with health care. It’s all about gaining more power and control over “We the People” at the expense of stripping our Constitutional liberties.

 This Congress continues to impose its neo-communistic philosophies on small businesses thru the passage of this tyrannical legislation. Passing this legislation will ultimately collapse America’s entrepreneurial spirit to create jobs in the private sector. Congress wants to impose an 8% tax on businesses and a 2.5% tax on individuals who don’t “OPT-IN” the plan. This will further negatively influence our near-depression economy by imposing heavy regulation and taxation on insurers, small businesses and individual consumers.

  This Congress continues to endorse public dollars for abortions with this legislation. Don’t tell us the existing Hyde Amendment protects this from happening … because that language is NOT written into the proposed 1900-page beast.

 This Congress continues its march forward to offer healthcare to all illegal aliens residing inside our porous borders. Again – the “something for nothing” crowd. Everybody is getting a free ride  except those that have earned it. Pure socialism.

 This Congress has NO intention of patronizing the same socialized healthcare program that it is torpedoing down our throats!  If this is such a nifty piece of healthcare – why are they “OPTING OUT? Their silence is as hypocritical as their policy.

Whatever they’re smoking up there on Capitol Hill, and in the White House, we don’t want any because it’s bad for our health and probably illegal.

 As a Viet Nam-era, U.S. Navy Submariner, I’m dedicating all of my resources to defeat any Congressional member’s re-election in 2010 who supports this piece of legislative tyranny. I may have earned my dolphins in the proud tradition of the “Silent Service”, but no longer will I sit back silently and let this Congress take my liberties away as was done by dictators in Communist China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, Iran and Cuba.

 My vigilance is undeniable. My intentions are to support my Constitution and the military oath taken many years ago,  “…that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same”.  

 Congress … are you friend or foe? Which side of the Constitution are you on, the Founding Fathers – or the liberal Socialists? November 2010 gets closer every day. Votes have consequences. We will defeat you.

  1. Amen to you brother! I’m with you and so is my husband. We’re calling our congressmen, over and over. Unfortunately, we live in the very blue state of Rhode Island and it’s like pulling teeth, but we continue. Don’t forget, we have Patrick Kennedy and Jack Reed, total liberals. They respond to our calls with emails telling us how they appreciate our comments, but they know better what’s best for our country. GRRRRR. We didn’t vote them in but we’re doing everything in our power to vote them out. Our tea parties here are growing as more and more people wake up.

    • Carol:

      I am not running for political office or accepting any form of money for my blog. I write to inspire others who feel they have lost their VOICE in this government. Please pass my blog on to others. I hope to inpsire thousands more like you to get active, get vocal and get commited to ovethrowing this radical socialist government.
      God Speed to you and your family.

  2. Our country’s Declaration of Independence states that every United States citizen has the “right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” By this bill being passed, they are taking away our right to live and deciding if we are worth the investment of surgery, if we have enough value. Who made them god? I continue to vote Conservative across the board and truly believe tomorrow’s election day will be victorious for Republicans. The only thing we can do is pray that GOd has mercy on our country and delivers us from the hands of this administration.

    • Dear Patriot:

      Thanks for your response. Your opinions are shared by the voting Majority but are trying to be snuffed by the liberal sociliast Politico. When the scale tips to this magnitude – we have a society governed under tyranny. We have a duty to mobilize as Conservatives and Independents and vote these socialists out of office. If the Socialists are found to be tampering with our votes (via ACORN) or other types of intimidators – as a Nation we must stamp out the funding of these radical organizations whose sole purpose is to de-rail our Republic and capitalism.

      Be vigilant and resist the tyranny in Washington every single day until we regain control of our Constitution.
