Congress and Your Medical Care

Ironic isn’t it. Members of the US Congress are determining YOUR medical care for the foreseeable future. Think about that for a second. Ask yourself, How are they qualified to make ANY decisions regarding your heath care? They aren’t! Their approval rating tell us that!

They tell us that US healthcare is in crisis and that we need to fix it. But stop and ask yourself, Is it really in crisis? Answer: NO. They have told you that it is in crisis. DO you believe Congress? Do you believe the President? Who do you trust with your healthcare. Answer: Your Doctor!

Since it’s in a crisis that justifies them not letting us read the legislation before they vote on it. They have already voted on an amendment that would give taxpayers 72 hours to read the bill before the vote. The DEMs pooh poohed that quickly. That’s because they don’t want us to know what is in the legislation.

Strange isn’t it that the “crisis” is so severe that the actual plan does not take effect until after 2012. Why is that? Well first, it starts by collecting your money and giving no actual benefits for a few years to help pay for the underestimated REAL costs. Second, 2012 is the year of the next Presidential election. Obama wants to be re-elected and it’s important to wait for the bill to start until after this election. That way people will not know the real effects of the plan until it’s too late to re-consider the election and how to vote. SMART huh?

There are ways of correcting the problems in our existing system. However, Congress and the President want to take over healthcare and make it just another government agency under their control. YIKES!

Don’t let this happen America.

Don’t Be Fooled

Seniors are being offered a Social Security payment of $250 per person for 2009 by Obama because the formula used to calculate COLA (cost of living) payments does not allow any for this year or next. So the administration is trying to pay-off seniors by more deficit spending in order to get their support back on ObamaCare. This is nothing more than a ruse by Obama. It’s also damn sneaky and cunning.

This bribe would cost US taxpayers an additional $13 Billion dollars that the government would either have to borrow or tax us in order to pay for it. It also sets a precedent. This payout is NOT part of the Social Security legislation, but a whole new tax on people. What’s to say it won’t be used for something else later? Gee, that sounds logical doesn’t it? Dig the hole $13 Billion dollars deeper. What the hell, the taxpayers can pay for it.

Americans, this is nothing more than the government trying to “suck-up” to senior citizens that they are stealing $500 Billion dollars from in order to pay for ObamaCare. It’s that simple. A quid pro quo. We Screw YOU and we get to pay for our government healthcare program. Wow, that sounds fair doesn’t it?

Who Wins?
Do the math. The government spends $13 Billion and then takes $500 Billion away. That leaves the government ahead by $487 Billion to help pay for ObamaCare. Seniors have already paid into Medicare and expect to receive these benefits. It is not only unfair, but cruel and unusual punishment to take this away from those who need it the most in the later years of their lives. That’s a redistribution of HEALTH and WEALTH. Taking away care and giving it to those who are uninsured or ILLEGAL is not humane! Do you support this logic? Do you have parents that are alive and retired?

Don’t let Congress redistribute senior's healthcare benefits.

What Can You Do?

If you have had enough of the Congress in Washington and the fools we elected to represent us, what can you do? They have ignored us every step of the way. We're lucky if we get a form letter from them when we take the time to send them a letter or an email. Most don't even bother to acknowledge the receipt of it. How rude. When they do answer, it usually misses the mark and ignores the issues we flagged when we asked them questions. Instead, they blather on about how hard they are working for healthcare. They ignore the issues raised at Town Meetings and refuse to discuss our concerns. They ignored 100, 000 people who marched in Washington. They ignore the polls and don't seem to understand that there ARE Americans outside of Washington who do not want ANY MORE DEFICIT SPENDING.

Become Active
You cannot expect change by sitting home and doing nothing. If you care about America and the direction it is heading, you need to become active in a positive non-violent way. Get online and Google the 912 Project. Learn what it is and what it represents. Join it. Find a local branch. Go to a meeting. Call and ask what you can do to help promote the 912 Project. Attend a rally. Meet other people who have the same feeling as you. Discuss the issues that you are concerned about. Talk to you neighbors and see if they have similar concerns.

The ONLY way a grass root movement can work is to become a part and participate in their activities. Before long you will wonder why you waited so long to join. You can make a difference. Help protect the Constitution and your personal liberties

White House Declares War!

In case you haven’t heard, Obama has finally declared war as Commander and Chief. No, we are not talking about sending more troops to Afghanistan or getting Iran to stop nuclear developments. His war is directed at AMERICANS! He declared war against FOX News and ALL its viewers!

White House Communications Director Anita Dunn had this to say “...the reality of it is that Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm of the Republican Party when they want to treat us like they treat everyone else, but let’s not pretend they’re a news network like CNN.” Dunn further stated in the New Your Times “We’re going to treat Fox News the way we would treat opponents.

Now apparently, Fox News and all its viewers are ENEMIES of the White House. This is unprecedented in the United States. For the first time the Executive Branch is attacking the FIRST AMENDMENT boldly and considers anyone who watches a TV station that opposes Obama’s political views as Enemies. They have been listening to Hugo Chavez too long.

It’s hard to believe that this is coming from the office of the President of the United States, but the facts are plain to see. Unfortunately, Obama has once again overlooked that we are at REAL war with Afghanistan and Iraq. People are dying there every day. Now he declares war against his own citizens! That’s outrageous!

The White House is attacking anyone who watches Fox News. Americans, you should be scared. This is abuse of Presidential power. The White House is openly attacking free speech and trying to silence opposing thoughts on their political agenda! Do not tolerate Fascism. This IS STILL AMERICA!

Fox News audiences consist of independents, Democrats, and Republicans who want another opinion because they are not finding one in other places. Fox viewers are NOT RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS like the White House would like you to believe. So much for the Nobel Peace Prize. The humble recipient instead wages war against those who have a different opinion of his political agenda. He cannot take honest criticism. It upsets him.

Joe Biden was right during the Presidential Campaign. He said that Obama lacked the leadership experience to take charge of America. He said that Obama was no leader! Being thinned skinned does not describe this behavior. When it comes to leadership, Obama is a rank amateur. He needs to take a class in US Presidency 101 to learn the fundamentals. People who disagree with your policies are NOT Republicans! They are AMERICANS and God knows WE ARE NOT THE ENEMY!!!

Grow up, wake up, and stop whining. Your ego will have to toughen up. You need to stop listening to the extremists you surrounded yourself with and start acting like a President! Your arrogance is disgusting! Stop insulting your fellow countrymen!

Use Common Sense

Because of the direction and speed the current administration is moving, this article contains thoughts on several issues regarding proposed legislation, government policies, and current government actions. Americans should consider each and support these positions:
  • It is dangerous to yield unilateral power to ANY branch of the government. Enforce a system of checks-and-balances. Do not approve any legislation that gives the US Treasury (or any government agency) power to seize private companies because the "government" deems it necessary for the "sake of the economy" or for any reason. That is Fascism and it is a direct attack on AMERICA's Constitutional freedoms!

  • Do not sanction any legislation that eliminates or replaces the US dollar for a "new global currency". Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner made public remarks supporting this idea and caused the American dollar to devaluate more than 1.5 %. He still maintains these beliefs and must be stopped. Please uphold your vows of office and protect our Constitution, the dollar, and our country.

  • Do not okay ANY MORE government bailouts of insurance companies, banks, auto companies, or any other privately held companies other than the ones already receiving them. If newspapers ask for bailouts, do not give them any. This amounts to the federalization of these institutions and is totally against American tradition, American values, and capitalism as we know it. If businesses fail, they fail! Saving them is Socialism! We are NOT a socialistic country. However, now it's apparent that the President can fire the CEO's of these companies and provide car warranties. What law provides these powers? The government has no business doing this or determining individual salaries either. This is outrageous! There is nothing wrong with filing Chapter 11 to resolve these issues! The Federal government has no right to run ANY business. It is unconstitutional.

  • Do not authorize any new legislation regarding "assault weapons" or any new anti-gun legislation, including new laws regarding ammunition/or shotguns. The Attorney General, Eric Holder, has indicated that he is willing to do so. He wants to ignore the recent US Supreme Court case that ruled in favor of the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment has had enough attacks. Leave it alone. Lawful gun owners all agree that the government should enforce the existing laws and not create any new anti-gun laws. Instead, introduce legislation that makes all states concealed weapons (CCW) permits reciprocal with one another, including law enforcement agents. A license to carry should be valid in ALL states.

  • Do not endorse any legislation that proposes a Cap-and-Trade system for carbon emissions. Global Warming is still NOT a proven concept. A significant number of credible scientists do not believe in this theory. It is still just a theory! Cap-and-Trade will only cause an increase in energy costs at a time when most people cannot afford it.

  • Back-up the First Amendment and stop any movements regarding the "Fairness Doctrine" or any proposed legislation that restricts free speech whatever it is called. This includes any suggested legislation from the new FCC Czar. Defend our individual rights provided in the Constitution and fight for them when they are aggressively attacked by politicians who want to abolish them. Strike-down the Mc Cain-Feingold Law.

  • Halt the questionable spending designated for universal health care. It discriminates AGAINST Seniors. We cannot afford it and there are other better solutions. California, Canada and the UK have already proven that this system of government controlled medicine does not work in favor of those who pay into it. It is extremely costly, gives unfair coverage, and it includes coverage for non-American citizens. Why pay for people who are here illegally? In addition, Congressional health care should be identical to what all US citizens have available. What's good for us, should be good for you! Get on board.

  • Support all efforts to secure our national borders. This can be in the form of fences, walls, National Guard patrols, electronic surveillance, land mines, or other means. We must stop the infiltration of Illegal Aliens (of all nationalities) - period! The virtual "fence" is a joke and hasn't worked to stop illegal entries.

  • Do not give-up our National Sovereignty to the leaders of the United Nations by agreeing to their Global Initiatives - including a new global currency. Most UN countries are lead by despots and dictators who want to bring-down (or control) the US and have their own agenda to do so. Also, the United Nations should find a new place to meet. We've hosted it for 65 years and done our share. Perhaps France, Germany, Russia, or China would like to provide the venue (and cost) instead of the US.

  • Illegal Aliens need to be identified and registered as such. After which, they need to formally be required to become American citizens and learn to read, write, and speak English. Lock-up criminal Illegal Aliens or deport them. They should not be set free to be able to commit additional crimes against US citizens.

  • Propose legislation to withhold government funding to "sanctuary cities" (like San Francisco and Boston) that make Illegal Aliens welcome. If these cities refuse to obey Federal Immigration Laws, they should not benefit by receiving Federal assistance.

  • We do not need a National Service Program. Vote "NO" on the Generations Invigorated Volunteerism and Education (GIVE) Act. We don't need another "Peace Corps" or the wasteful bureaucracy to run it.

  • The Green Bank Act 2009 is a also waste of taxpayer's money. Vote "NO" on this new proposed legislation. Stop defending unions and any legislation that makes unionizing easier like Card Check (the Employee Free Choice Act). Unions have destroyed our auto manufacturers and now taken a large ownership of these companies. That's un-American! Do not allow unions to expand their existing powers, they have done enough harm to the economy. Instead, why not fire the Union leaders too?

  • It is irresponsible to vote for any legislation without taking the time to read it and understand the terms and limitations of the new law. This behavior is dangerous and leads to misappropriated funding and wasteful, unnecessary spending on earmarks. NEVER support any legislation that you do not have time to read. Would you sign you Last Will and Testament without reading it?

  • We have term limits for the office of the President. We should enact term limits for Congressmen and Senators. Congressional term limits should be a maximum of two consecutive terms (maximum 8 years). No grandfathering clauses. The Senate term limit should be a maximum of 12 years (two consecutive terms). Also eliminate Congressional pensions. Thank you for serving, now it's time to move on.

  • Propose new income tax legislation. Abolish all current tax codes. Establish a flat tax of 10 to 12 percent. Everyone pays and there are no deductions. This is simple and fair for everyone - no exceptions allowed. Jail and fine anyone who "forgets" or neglects to pay their taxes - including/especially any government officials.

ObamaCare Fair?

Stop and take a REAL look at what government healthcare is really doing. It is re-distributing coverage. It is taking coverage away from Medicare (-$500,000,000) to help pay for the uninsured, abortions, and Illegals.

Liberals/Progressives (let’s call them all “Statists” for short) always point out things that are “unfair” or “mean spirited.” Well they are all hypocrites and they know it! They are being unfair and mean spirited towards Seniors. Think about it… In order to pay for the new plan they are going to take money away from seniors (the ones who need coverage the most) in order to give it to these who need it the least. Does that sound fair to you?

Is There a Crisis?
In a word - No, there us NOT a crisis in healthcare. Over 2/3 of the population are satisfied with what they have and how it works. Not we are told that we need to fix what’s NOT broke in order to make Statists happy. Why is this? Has anybody bothered to ask?

Deaf to Solutions
Instead of listening to the public, Statists want their agenda passed. They ignore the idea of adding Tort reform because lawyers represent a large block of special interest groups that donate millions to Statists. Consequently, this idea is bad because it hurts the people who helped get the Statists elected. It gives NO consideration to the people who actually voted!

Instead of making insurance more competitive, Statists oppose letting you buy health insurance across state lines. Why? It would make it easier to satisfy those who don’t buy insurance because it would be cheaper by being more competitive. Statists don’t want you to be in charge of your life. Statists want to be in control of YOUR life instead!

Pull The Plug on Grandma
In effect, the Statists are literally sacrificing “Grandma” to promote their agenda. Remember, they know what’s best for ALL of us. They promote their agenda because it is for the good of the State – NOT YOU! Your liberties are melting away a little at a time.

Action To Take

If you don’t believe in these Statist ideas, you need to stand up and speak for yourself before it is TOO late.
