Harry Spins the Biggest Healthcare Yarn Yet; Bill Cost Only $849 Billion!

Updated on November 19, 2009

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, flanked by fellow Socialist (another name for Democrats) announced his long-awaited health care legislation would only cost $849 billion. This is the biggest LIE-PREVARICATION-KANARD; you pick the name for this smoke and mirror sophistry, yet! Hopefully in the very near future we’ll find out just what constituted the 30 Pieces of Silver the CBO sold out for in underscoring this bill so dramatically!

Republicans are eager to expose the hypocrisy of this charade. First they will shine the light of truth on that part of the Bill requiring every American to carry health insurance! This will place an enormous economic burden on young Americans starting lives, careers and families but somebody’s got to pay for this; right! How’s that Hope and Change Looking now young guys and gals? Next it will mandate large companies to provide coverage to their workers; CAN YOU SAY GOODBY WALMART? And best of all, Go Ahead Make My Day Harry expects us to believe all this wonderment will actually reduce the federal deficits by a total of $127 billion over 10 years. Hi Ho Hi Ho It’s Off To The Congress We GO!

The once respectable CBO estimated that the bill would achieve cuts of $1 trillion over a decade in projected health care costs. One only needs to look at the magnificent job the Federal Government does in running Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, The Food Stamp Program, The Post Office, etc., etc., etc., to believe this one!

The insidious truth is part of the bill will be financed by cuts in projected Medicare payments. Also, bend over America and say Thank You Sir May I have Another; Reid has  said higher payroll taxes for upper wage earners, will be incorporated into the bill! The question here is who constitutes that group Upper Wage Earners? Remember during the campaign he and that Financial Wizard Joe Biden went from $250,000 per year to $150,000 to $100,000; the truth is EVERY American, WORKING or Retired WILL EXPERIENCE A SUBSTANTIAL TAX INCREASE!

More of Harry’s Redistribution Spin; the bill supposedly will set up new insurance marketplaces, called exchanges, for those who now have a hard time getting or keeping coverage. Subsidies would be available to help defray the cost of coverage for people with lower incomes. Remember the Joe the Plummer encounter; well this is how Hussein Obama and his Merry Socialist plan on Redistributing your Wealth!

Here’s the Biggest Whopper in Uncle Harry’s Tale; Brer Rabbit and the Insurance Patch; Reid said the Bill allows states the right to drop out of the system. Well, according to Michelle Malkin, “it will be easier to get Michael Moore through the eye of a needle than for states to opt out of Obamacare”. In other words she adds there will be countless funding measures attached so as to ensure that if states opt out, they will go even more broke than they already are!

So I ask where is Joe Wilson when you need him. When Reid brings this bill up on the Senate Floor we need a collective chorus of YOU LIE, to resound from the senate floor and the chant needs to continue throughout the entire process. We simply cannot allow this travesty to become law!

      Hope to see more of you in the future; not in a Hope and Change Sense of Course! You are correct my friend; America is about to receive a bend over thank you sir may I have another welcome!

      Patients near and far will soon be saying; Doctor –Doctor, who’s got the Doctor? Or maybe, they came for the Drs. but I wasn’t a Dr. so I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Dr. The ugly truth is Socialism by any other name is still socialism! Hello Karl my old friend… I’ve come to talk to you again!

      The poor are responsible for this debacle; Obama and his Obamatrons rode into power on their white horses carrying a banner of Class Warfare! They played the evil rich against the poor downtrodden mistreated so it is only right that the misguided poor get what they deserve by falling for this Hope-and-Change-BS!

      After Obama wipes out the middle class 95% of Americans will make less than $60,000 a year, in fact they will make less than $35,000 per year; after all according to The Anointed One…..we’re all better off when we spread the wealth around; AKA Joe the Plumber encounter!

      So, let’s not grow the pie; let’s keep it the same size but slice in into smaller pieces so it’s fairer to everyone!

      A rude awaking is about to take place for those cheer leading Obamacare.

      It seems that Doctors are not too keen on taking pay cuts to participate in Obamacare.

      So when patients try to find a Doctor they won't be able to. That's one way to help Americans. Make another promise that can not be kept.

      This does nothing more than FORCE the poor to purchase a product they can not afford. What will they choose - food, rent, or insurance.

      How does fining the poor help them? Insurance is available to the poor now. And they can not afford it.

      "Affordable" is a term that is being thrown around and not defined.

      75% of Americans make less than $60,000 a year. The average adult has $2,500 in savings and $50,000 in debt. One in Six Americans is unemployed.

      What is affordable to these people?

      Tax credits are not money. Co pays will still exist.

      I am very worried about what they are trying to do. They don't seem to understand, that if THEY don't do something to help the job market, nobody will be working to fund their diabolical plans!

      Great American

      You are dead right with your Union Assessment of their proposed Wal-Mart Takeover. I for one hope if this occurs Sam Walmart will close the doors and let the American people experience firsthand WHAT THAT HOPE AND CHANGE MEANS TO THEM!

      Partisan, I can see you have done a lot of work with numbers, and the WalMart remark caught my eye..

      There is another purpose to the demand of business to sign on and in the case of WalMart it is one word "UNION"

      They have been fighting for years to get their claws into the 1.4 Million WalMart employees. If/When they pull it off that will put an end to LOW prices and it will do next to nothing to benefit the workers. In fact it could result in as much as a 10 percent reduction of staff!! How is that Hope and Change working for you folks??
