The Obama Healthcare Reform Bill For Better Or Worst
Obama Healthcare Reform Bill
The Obama Healthcare Reform Bill For Better Or Worst was signed by President Barrack Obama on 3/23/10 in the Whitehouse with the Democrat leaders of Congress as a background. The minority party (Republicans ) and a few Democrat Congressional members were unable to stop the passage of the Healthcare Bill. The polls indicated that some 60% of the people were not in favor of passing the Healthcare Bill. Sadly , none of the minority party were in attendance to witness the historic signing of the Healthcare Reform bill.
Just after we watched the signing, we made a call to our Democrat Congressman’s office with a request for information regarding the contents of the Healthcare legislation. His staff of six were unable to answer our questions. They advised us that they would forward the information to the Congressman who was in Washington * see footnote
The following seven questions were.
1. Will the costs of premiums for Medicare members go up higher now that the bill is the law?
2.Will the cuts ( $ 500 million ) in the Medicare program increase members supplement insurance premiums and coverage’s?
3. What has the student loan program legislation have to do with healthcare The Student Loan Bill passed by Congress now excludes banks from making Student loans and creates a government takeover of the program. Removing the banks from making student loans will increase the unemployment in the PRIVATE SECTOR and provide more PUBLIC JOBS further impacting unemployment in the private sector.
4. Why is the government mandating paying for health insurance when many of the services will not be available until 2014?
5 Why did President Barak Obama announce that this bill will mandate insurance companies to provide services for pre existing conditions. It was reported that the services would not be available to 2014?
6.Why didn’t the bill exclude healthcare coverage for non citizens and Illegals?
7. Why didn’t the bill exclude public paying for abortions ? If the bill excludes paying for abortion, why was it necessary for President Barrack Obama to issue an executive order?
As of today, we have not receive a response to our questions. Prior to the voting on Healthcare Reform we requested our elected Congressman to VOTE NO on the legislation. The Congressman apparently regarded the wishes of the Democrat party leadership and President Barak Obama more important then the wishes of the people who elected him.
On Thurs. President Obama travel to Iowa to tell the audience and the American people that history was made in signing the Healthcare Legislation on 3/23/10. In true campaign mode Barak Obama arrogantly told the Republicans ‘’ go for it’’ in reference to the Republican decision to fight to appeal the Healthcare Reform Bill
Shameful as it was when President Obama chastised the Supreme Court Justices for a campaign finance decision in front of Congress and the American people. The news media later reported that President Obama was wrong to make his statement. The American people did elect the opposition party to go to Washington to represent them.
President Obama’s statements were derogative, arrogant and unbecoming from the President of our country in addition to insulting those voters who elected those members of Congress he referred to in his speech.
While the country and the economy suffers, President Obama has neglected to fulfill his promises for jobs and fixing the economy upon taking office in Jan. 2009. Time will only tell if the opposition party and the people were right in their request not to pass the Healthcare Reform Bill.
In the last few days, the legislation has revealed that the contents of the bill will have a negative impact on businesses, economy and further impact job unemployment. Many who voted for the bill have acknowledged that insurance premiums will continue to rise.
Foot note: Wake up America, sound off and call your public servant and make your voice be heard! In 2010, the Congressman lost his seat in the election.
