President Barak Obama Demonizes The Insurance Companies

President Barak Obama demonizes the insurance companies.
Where do I begin to respond to the accusations and propaganda that President Obama is using to demonizing the insurance companies and the so called Republican opposition ( he doesn't mention the Democrats not agreeing )to the present approved healthcare reform legislation.
Today, Speaker of the House Pelosi stated ''WE NEED TO PASS THE BILL SO THAT WE WILL KNOW WHAT IS IN IT ''. That statement should tell you something about what is going on in the Democrat controlled Congress and the Obama administration. We got to hurry and pass this bill, really, even if the people reject the present bill.
Wake up America, we are not being told the truth, the whole truth about the healthcare bill. This radical group in Washington wants our elected representatives to pass a bill that is not yet written or debated. The CBO can't score the health care reform bill until it is written and we know that the final legislation has not been written or posted for 72 hours.
Obama mentions CBO statistics which latter on the CBO contradicts the President’s statistics. One must wonder who's figures we can believe. The President said about his plan regarding the cost of insurance, '' we must have more people paying so that the cost can come down''. He's right, that's why the plan mandates that everyone will be forced to buy insurance.
So, why isn't Congress and the President concentrating on first getting the people back to work (14.9 million of the unemployed ).The President said ''if we have more people paying, the cost (insurance) will come down. The solution is right in front of Barak Obama and Congress, so what’s the holdup, get the people back to work. The stimulus bill was intended to get the economy moving again with ready shovel projects.
Our government plays a major role for premiums escalating. The insurance companies have no choice , in order to stay in business but to raise rates to their paying members, when income goes down. A profit margin of 2% to 4% is not out of line in the healthcare insurance industry.
In 2006 the unemployment rate was 4.6%(Republicans controlled Congress), 2007 rate was 6.0% ( Democrat take over of Congress ), 2008 rate was7% (second year of Democrat Congress) and 2009 rate was 9.7% (SUPER MAJORITY Democrat controlled Congress ). Congress approved the stimulus bill $787 billion, now $ 800 + billion to create jobs. That's a lot of people out of work losing healthcare and insurance companies losing income to cover cost to providers.
Polls show that 60%to70% of the people don’t like the present healthcare plan. President Obama has heard the voice of the people, so why is he insisting that Congress pass the health reform insurance bill. Congress needs to concentrate on jobs and to stop spending before passing legislation which will increase the deficit.
Let’s face it, it’s not about healthcare, it’s about rising insurance cost. The Government needs to accept their responsibility in the rising cost of healthcare insurance cost. President Obama in his arrogance needs to face up to untrue statements about what’s in the bill and accept the will of the people.
Wake up America, contact your representative and question why the proposed healthcare reform legislation should be approved before the economy and the jobs problems are solved.
