Obama the Finance Wiz – Who is Stupid Obama or Americans?

Updated on March 26, 2010

Mandating the Destruction of American Liberty

Can Lawyers do math? Clearly Obama can not.

Americans are broke. You can not drink from an empty well. Telling Americans they MUST purchase insurance is pretending the well is not empty. Go ahead and drink up America. 1 in 6 Americans doesn't have a job.  How will they pay their premiums? With Tax Credits promised a year and a half from now and benefits promised 5 years down the road?

The Senate's plan to expand health coverage to 34 million more Americans would raise costs slightly, government economic experts said in a report Saturday.

What is a “Government Expert”? The same people that keep telling you the Unemployment Rate is “only” 10% when the reality is it is nearly double because “Government Experts” only count people who are receiving benefits.

Even as he acknowledged it would take several years — until 2014 in some instances — for some of the changes to be fully in place.

It’s not going to take several years to tax you… taxes start as soon as the Bill is signed into law. That’s the “trick” to financing this disaster. Spread the costs over 10 years and provide benefits for only 5. A third grader can do that math. Pay taxes for 5 years with no benefits.

Obama said:

· People with illnesses or medical conditions will be able to buy affordable health insurance.

Really? Not until 2014. And who is he to tell an individual what is “affordable”. The typical family of four now pays about $1,000 a month for coverage most of which is offset by their employer. If families could “afford” insurance now they would buy it. The reality is they can not. And MANDATING a person/family purchase insurance is not going to magically make it “Affordable”. If a person can not afford MANDATED auto insurance, they have an option. Find another form of transportation. What options are available to the family/person that can not afford health insurance? Jail? Fines?

· Children with such conditions will no longer be denied coverage.

Wow that is great news. Insurance companies will be required to destroy their risk pools. Save the children, screw the adults. And how are the insurance companies going to provide this new coverage to the already ill? They are going to increase premiums. It’s just that simple.

· Small-business owners who can't afford to cover their employees will get tax credits to help them do so.

If you can not afford to provide health insurance coverage providing “tax credits” is not going to change that. Tax Credits will not cover the cost of premiums only part of the cost. And a Tax Credit is NOT money. You only get the credit after you apply for it when you do your tax returns. Who pays the premium costs until then? “Help” 16 months down the road isn’t “Help”. Saying we will give you $40 cents on the dollar a year and a half from now isn’t going to change anything. Small-business owners still will not provide coverage. Does anyone in the Ivory Tower know what it means to run a Small Business? Small Business can not tax and run up deficits.

· Insurance companies will be required to offer free preventive care to their customers and will be prohibited from dropping coverage when someone becomes ill.

This is the most laughable of all Obama’s statements. REQUIRED to offer FREE? Think about that. Insurance companies are businesses. Are employees going to work for “FREE” to provide those “FREE” preventative care services? Will landlords suddenly drop lease payments to house the “FREE” services? On what planet can any company offer any “FREE” services? There is no such thing as “FREE”. Insurance companies will do what they have to do – raise premiums. Nothing is free. And once again this is MANDATED.

Obama is a pathetic excuse for a President. His Agenda has nothing to do with helping Americans and everything to do with more Government control over our lives.

The only thing this Health Care Bill will do is hurt the poor. It will accomplish nothing in terms of providing coverage for more Americans. All it is doing to telling people they must buy insurance. People who can afford and need insurance already buy it. Telling people with no money to choose between food, rent, and survival or insurance is not going to do anything but inflict more pain and raise costs.

Americans are broke! You can’t drink from an empty well.

And even with insurance the poor will still not be able to cover the cost of the co pays. So they will have insurance they can not afford to use.

Where are the Doctors going to come from to service the additional 15 million patients for Medicare? Doctors servicing Medicare are scarce now. The vast majority of quality physcians do not accept Medicare patients. And Team Obama’s brilliant plan to cut costs is to cut Doctors compensation by 20%.

Do you think Doctors are going to line up to join programs that pay 20% less than the ridiculously low payments already in place?

What do you think would happen if we suggested Congress cut their pay and budget by 20%?

House and Senate versions of the overhaul would require nearly all Americans to get coverage and provide subsidies for many who can't afford the cost, but they differ on the details. Among the remaining sticking points are whom to tax, how many people to cover, how to restrict taxpayer funding for abortion and whether illegal immigrants should be allowed to use their own money to buy coverage in new insurance markets.

You have got to be kidding right? What part of “Illegal” does team Obama not get? Coverage for Illegal Immigrants? What the hell do we have to do as Americans to get through to Politicians the meaning of the word “Illegal”.

And if the country is providing benefits to “Illegal Aliens” (11 States already issue drivers licenses) then what the hell is the point of Citizenship? Do Illegal Immigrants pay taxes?

We spend $4 BILLION a month chasing “Terrorists” in Afghanistan and we promote benefits for Illegal Aliens?

If that doesn’t make you rethink what our real Terrorist Agenda is… then nothing will.

Team Obama's View of Americans

Shut up America do what we tell you to do!
Shut up America do what we tell you to do!

    Whether you have health insurance or not does not change the fact this bill will HURT and not help people. FORCING people to buy coverage doesn't help them. They will have to choose between food, rent, and fines or jail.

    The reality is people do not have the money to buy coverage whether you force it or not. And just telling them they must won't change that.

    You can not drink from an empty well.

    I guess the obvious question is do you personally have health insurance? Do you value it? Are you a have judging a have not?

    Fantastic article, Mike. I agree. The irony is that most people just simply believe that these "promises" are attainable. They don't even comprehend what has to happen to succeed in getting this insurance. They hear "everyone will have insurance", and that's what they hang onto. Not, how is our economy going to be effected by this decision, what will the medical coverage be, or will there be waiting lists to get that x-ray I need today. It is amazing how ignorant some people are when it comes to politics, yet everyone wants to point fingers and speak ill about how the people in office work, when we are the ones who got them there!

    All Obama is doing is ACCELERATING the New World Order Agenda.

    Fair? Is it FAIR to force the poor to buy a product they do not have money to buy?

    Is it fair to FINE the poor for being poor?

    Is it fair to JAIL a person because he can not afford to buy insurance?

    Might want to rethink your definition of "FAIR".

    And if by TRYING you mean destroying Freedoms and Liberties then yes he is TRYING.

    If capitalism is defined as a social system based on individual rights (and individual wealth), then communism is its direct opposite. Communism believes in equality through force. In its system, individual rights are ground to powder and used to build its idol of absolute government control.

    Obama is TRYING to destroy the Constitutional Rights Americans currently enjoy.

    I don't think that's a fair criticism. At least Obama is TRYING to do SOMETHING
