I Guess I'm "Called Out"
OK Mr. President, consider me “called out.” Rather than accept your words, I’m going to consider the facts and see who should be called out. You? Or those who oppose your health care plan?
It is not a “lie” to believe that the plan proposed by you and your political party, could “pull the plug on Gramma.” It’s a most-likely scenario as a matter of fact. Some have actually said the plug won’t be pulled and actually agree with you in part. Gramma won’t even be on that hospital bed to have the OPTION of having her plug pulled because of a shortage of beds that every hospital will have under your plan. Like what goes on this VERY MOMENT in the U.K. with women giving birth in bathrooms and elevators because there aren’t enough hospital beds! With people literally DYING because it takes months and months to receive care.
But let’s visit the facts. In England, it is a fact MORE WOMEN DIE from complications associated with breast cancer (for example) than in the U.S. due to withheld care.
Why is the care withheld? The U.K. can’t afford to treat EVERYONE, therefore, some must be weeded out. It’s called rationing, and it happens in the U.K. as well as Canada.
The facts don’t lie. Nationalized health care ultimately requires “rationing” and we know some of your Czars you have assigned to write this healthcare bill believe there are “productive” members of society and non-productive members of society – therefore, why give health-care to those who are non-productive? Remember, there are healthcare Czars like John Holdren who believe that we should control population – with forced sterilization.
Holdren advocates compulsory abortions. Lest those who are “pro-choice” wish to believe that the pro-abort movement was ever about “choice.” Read what these people really think – the same type of people who are running the country now. Another of the President’s healthcare “advisors” Peter Singer (Czar?) is a “death to babies” scientist (and we're not talking merely abortions here), among many other chilling and horrifying ideas. It would be funny/crazy were it not for the fact – HE ADVISES THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!
So your arrogant, narcissistic threatening speech did little to persuade us Mr. President. As a famous T.V. personality Ricky Ricardo used to say, you have some “splainin’ to do. Just who are you calling liars Mr. President? Just who are you calling out for misrepresenting your healthcare plan? The government absolutely will oversee healthcare and make decisions about Gramma’s healthcare which will LEAD to (at best) to what type of care she receives or (at worst), whether she lives or dies. We know this because you’ve already slipped some of this legislation into your Orwellian-like stimulus bill!
I call Michigan home. Check out what the Unions have done to Michigan! Long, long before there was any type of economic downturn in our nation’s economy, check what the economy of Michigan was like way back in 2003-2004. If there is any doubt that our governor, a Democrat, who was and is very cozy with the Unions, weren’t responsible for the tragic downturn in Michigan’s economy, think again. Michigan is one of the worst for businesses due to various reasons, one is environmental nonsensical regulations and the other is high taxes but most of all it is because of the corruption of the Unions here in Michigan.
The last thing we need is to give more power to Unions. We need to give more power back to the PEOPLE, not special interest fat cats.
I also do not believe one word you said Mr. President, I’m sorry to say—when you claimed that this 900 million dollars arbitrary cost you came up with for your plan, is the cap. Name one single government program Mr. Obama, I’ll just pick a few off the top of my head – Welfare, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid – that cost ONLY what it was estimated it would cost when the government implemented it AND was a monetary success. Please, would you list the number of government run programs that aren’t poorly run and broke? Just name three.
And if Medicare reform will pay for your healthcare bill, which we all know is bankrupt, corrupt and horribly abused (just another product of a government run program!) why not implement these so-called cuts in fraud and abuse right this second to fix what is ALREADY THERE? Why must this be quid-pro-quo? Why MUST your mismanaged, unclear, over bloated 1000+ page healthcare plan be passed before you fix these obvious problems? Your promises of the “money saved” by doing this which you claim will pay for your healthcare bill, is hogwash. I’m not stupid enough to believe that fantasy and you know what? The American people aren’t stupid enough to believe it either.
So – given the company you keep, given the facts Mr. Obama – who truly is the liar here? I am taking a stand for our seniors, our veterans (the “death book” your administration reinstated) and the unborn. Oh, I’m taking a stand for America and the Constitution too. Consider me “called out” Mr. Obama –
