Obamacare a Clear View: Man of The People or The Corporations?

Updated on January 13, 2014

What a difference two years makes

Two years ago I was a pro President Obama fan. You can tell from the poem I wrote and posted below " A Man of The People". Now two years later and several issues in the office later I could say that I am not really sure anyone could fit the bill well for President. I will be fair and say it is a hard job but, i will also be fair and say that although they have tried to put a positive spin and a pretty bow on it Obamacare is a mandatory mess.

If it had flown in it's original state like most of the other countries in the world it would have been fair and a certain percent of monies would have been taken out of everyone's paychecks to cover nationwide healthcare however, somewhere along the way rich men's greed and I am sure some nice government kickbacks have left the poor man to suffer once more.

The Very Latest Nullify Obamacare Rally in South Carolina

What Is Obamacare Really? A Government Mess Pawned Off On United States Citizens To Help Clean Up!

I wish I could tell you I am going to give you an unbiased story of "The Obamacare Scheme" but, to give you an unbiased version would be to give you a blind version to the truth. I called it "The Obamacare Scheme" because that is what I feel it is. No more no less. This is a scheme like any other devised to get the people of this nation to put out more buckets of money (amounts designated by the government and insurance companies) to fill the pockets of people who can't even keep this country afloat as it is. This is suppose to help balance this country further out of a debt that THEY put us in? How? All I see is it putting the working family further in debt or worse putting them behind bars when they can not pay these amounts of money that this fine government establishment has desired we need to pay out in health insurance. That's right people not only can you be fined thousands of dollars they have announced now that you can also be imprisoned. The President himself said that the punishment should fit the crime and that if you don't want to pay then there should be laws enforced that let you know this is a serious matter.

Obamacare boils down to a mandatory health insurance much like that of the car insurance we are force to have health insurance that is regulated by the government. Which means they set the rules. One of the videos I have on the hub post explained that those of you who have already signed up through the Obamacare website and were not given an amount of what you are going to be paying yet... NEWSFLASH : the government has told the insurance companies to jot down an amount they feel you should pay, then the government is going to advance the insurance companies that amount of monies and you will be paying it back to the government. NO MATTER THE AMOUNT FOLKS! You have no knowledge or say of the amount. They have decided for you. Isn't that nice. We are now all cattle without a say or a mind to think... or that is what they would like to think. It is almost like a robbery but, legally because it is our own government doing it to us!

Furthermore there is a mandate in place with Obamacare that if at anytime you own for your health insurance or have fines or fees you can have it taken from your tax returns. That's right they want them too. I'm sorry is there anything at all left for you to live on? If there is be quiet about it they find out they will try and get it from you somehow!

This will leave those of us who have no money in the first place with even less and perhaps even just working to pay for our insurance. Yes, the working stiff trying to make ends meat has just suffered another blow, while the men in corporate suits who sometimes like to roll up their sleeves and act like one of us have patted themselves on the back yet again and said we did it.

If this is the answer... then what was the real question? If you were keeping up "We The People" never voted for this!

There is a movement that has started in South Carolina through FreedomWorksAction! I urge you to check this out and become involved. They are trying to squash Obamacare. If the American people all stand together and fight this we can win against the bureaucratic suits that are trying to take our wallets and make all our decisions for us. We are not robots, we are humans and as such we have the freedom of choice. This country is known for it's freedom but, this mandate is pushing it one step closer to taking all our rights away. If we don't fight now when will it stop?

If each state form an action like South Carolina is doing we can United against Obamacare but, most of all we are uniting to let this government know we will not stand for them taking our rights away! We will not stand for them making life harder on our families with our earnings becoming lower! We will not allow them to mandate our every move! We will remind them this country was built on freedom and choice... NOT MANDATES!

For those of you who still wish to remain under the hopeful thinking that the govenment is not feeding you a line of bull I can only say know Obamacare very well! If we are not for any reason successful in over turning it (God help the country!) there are severe penalties and you can suffer jail time as well. Obama in his own words thinks people don't have the health insurance just because they don't want to pay out the money. That we all just set around spending the money on other things because we don't want to pay for silly things like health and then when we get sick we want a free ride ( in so many words). No, Mr. President a lot of us can't even afford to get sick because we can't miss a day of work and still afford to pay our bills. It isn't that we didn't want health insurance it was that we couldn't afford to pay for health insurance in the first place and now you think your magic wand of manditory insurance is a great idea? WE STILL HAVE NO MONEY TO PAY IT! You can ot get blood from a stone but, I guess if Obamacare can't get blood from a stone then it just fines the stone or throws it in jail (I guess the prisons aren't crowded enough... wait haven't a lot of them closed due to no money?). Now they have made it that much more of a burden to live in this FREE society.

This rich get richer and the poor get poorer mentality is over running the country. I have included some videos with facts that you may not have known about Obamacare. Please enlighten yourself. This is a very important matter and the more you know the better off you will be. They are depending on the fact that most of us will be confused cattle and just go along with whatever they say and want. Not thinking for ourselves is the way this government would like it. That could be why so many mandates are being put in place.Note : Confusion is usually used to hide schemes or acts of falsehood.

I say think and think hard. Even if it is something that is mandatory make sure you are getting the best out of it that you can possibly get, after all if your already going to be in a bad spot why be in a worse one by allowing someone else to make your choices for you? As you know I would say the besd position to take would of course be to rally up against Obamacare and take a stand!

All I can hope is that this society as a whole grows brighter than the darkness that has been shed upon it now. This is not the country our forefathers built. This has become a land of scratch my back and I will scratch yours. Fend for yourself and I will fend for mine. Corporate America is running the country now not the Government that once was.I am not sure if I even recall the last time I truly saw the humanity for it's own people. The all mighty dollar has taken the place of compassion.

The way the government has become made me think of a famous passage from Dicken’s A Christmas Carol:

‘Are there no prisons?”

‘Plenty of prisons,’ said the gentleman, laying down the pen again.’And the Union workhouses.’ demanded Scrooge. ‘Are they still in operation?’

‘Both very busy, sir.’

‘Oh. I was afraid, from what you said at first, that something had occurred to stop them in their useful course,’ said Scrooge. ‘I’m very glad to hear it.’

‘Under the impression that they scarcely furnish Christian cheer of mind or body to the multitude,’ returned the gentleman, ‘a few of us are endeavouring to raise a fund to buy the Poor some meat and drink, and means of warmth. We choose this time, because it is a time, of all others, when Want is keenly felt, and Abundance rejoices. What shall I put you down for?’

‘Nothing!’ Scrooge replied.

‘You wish to be anonymous?’

‘I wish to be left alone,’ said Scrooge. ‘Since you ask me what I wish, gentlemen, that is my answer. I don’t make merry myself at Christmas and I can’t afford to make idle people merry. I help to support the establishments I have mentioned-they cost enough; and those who are badly off must go there.’

‘Many can’t go there; and many would rather die.’

‘If they would rather die,’ said Scrooge, ‘they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.”

We are all the surplus population and I do believe we are all expendable at this point. Sometimes perhaps due to the fact that we do not fit into the cookie cutter society that is their reality. Everyone is valuable. There was a time once when this was recognized as true. It saddens me that now everything is beaten down to brass taxes and enslavement if you can not afford to meet these standards. The dark ages are upon use once more.

Obamacare is not an answer for anyone and it is not going to be a thread or a lifeline to help pull the country out of any kind of debt situation we are in. It is only a lucrative deal between the government and the insurance companies, medical companies and pharmaceutical companies to get richer. Silly me I thought they were already in the highest earning percentile. I guess too much is never enough.

May the good Lord assist those of us who are in poverty and already can't get out of the hole, because Obamacare has his foot ready to shove us farther down as we speak. Good luck to each of you! I wish you the best in these trying days and times. I hope you can find a small glimmer of light in this Obamacare ordeal. READ! READ! READ! Learn all you can! I have placed some information to help you in this hub but, I urge you don't stop here. Keep going and know everything you can know about your circumstances. Knowledge is power! Please join hands as American across this nation and let's stop Obamacare from mandating us out of our freedom and our futures! This is not just about us, remember this is about our children and our children's children too! Once they get a foot hold to allow this where will the mandates end? What will be next? The will never get there hands out of our pockets or our rights and freedom! May the good Lord shine on you!

Know Obamacare Well or You Could Be Fined or Go to Jail

President Obama has promised not to raise taxes on the middle class, but nearly 70 percent of those who will pay the Obamacare individual mandate tax earn less than 400 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL), and 10 percent live in poverty. This

The Initial Payment Plan


A Man of the People


A Man of the People by Solara Frost 01/08/12

A man of the people,

Who stands strong,

Who worries if the working man is getting along,

A man of the people,

Our President is,

Who worries about our little kids,

A man of the people,

Through dark words and strife,

He knows who you work for your husband or wife,

A man of the people,

Like you and me,

He stands beside us to keep America free,

A man of the people,

His words he stands by,

To help us get ahead; not just get by,

A man of the people,

Just like you and me,

Trying to build in all communities,

A man of the people,

With wife and children,

Paving a future so that we all can win,

A man of the people,

President Obama is,

Working for us and for all our kids,

A man of the people,

Through it all,

President Obama will never miss the call,

A man of the people,

A man of the people,

A man for the people,

A man by the people.

Vote Obama

      Obama had my support the first time around, but no more.

      He's just another Bush in sheep's clothing, working for the super-rich (Rockefellers, et al). Why kill Osama bin Laden? Why not capture him? But Osama said he wasn't behind 9/11! And in an Aaron Russo interview we learn that the Rockefellers were behind it all as an excuse for Patriot Act, and lucrative contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

      Why perpetuate the unPatriot Act? Why attack Gaddafi right when he was going to mint his own currency? Big bankers didn't like that.

      Why perpetuate the Afghanistan War? More contracts for Haliburton? More oil for the super-profitable and price-gouging oil companies?

      We are being played and Obama is one of the stooges helping the players. I am sorely disappointed!

      Why not Ron Paul for a refreshing change? He's a medical doctor who wasn't in it for the big bucks. In fact, he frequently donates his services as a doctor, even when he's on vacation from Congress. Perhaps the super rich don't like the fact that he wants to get rid of the privately-owned "Federal" Reserve Banks.

      I hope Ron Paul wins. It's a long shot. And I hope he survives long enough to accomplish his goals -- to take us back to the Constitution and to get rid of the unconstitutional FED -- a major source of our soaring debt.
