Somethign you Probably do not Know about Obama's Plans for Health Care

    I was pretty appalled yesterday to find out that Obama is AGAINST funding health care for 911 victims.

    You can read the full story here:

    However in my view this is even more disheartening.

    If you are under age 65 and disabled, and have been entitled to disability benefits under Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board for 24 months, you will be automatically entitled to Medicare Part A and Part B beginning the 25th month of disability benefit entitlement.

    Now that is the Current Law.  If you become disabled under the age of 65 you have a two year waiting period before you can become eligible for Medicare.  So you are declared disabled by the Federal Government and you obviously can not work, nor can you get medical insurance unless you have enough money to buy it privately.

    That's quite the system.  Let people suffer end die before you help them.

    And both the House and Senate versions of "Health Care Reform" do absolutely nothing to alleviate the suffering of the disabled.

    The problem isn't that people don't want Health Care.  And Obama is trying to paint a picture of Republicans just voting no to vote no, the problem is Team Obama's plan does little to really address those who need health insurance most.

    As you dig into the monstrous Sentate Bill you find special interests in line to profit, and little to truly help Americans.  Mandated policies are not the way to help.  Forcing people to buy coverage for pre existing conditions and then not even allowing them to be eligible for benefits until 5 years from now isn't coverage... it's taxation without representation.

    Obama's vision for Health Care stinks!  And that is why the people are Rebelling Against it.

    Mike, this what people don't understand. They think they don't have to pay for their health care.  They'll find out that as these costs go up, and they will, the gov't will cut corners on other things. Heck they might have to cut corners anyway since social security and medicare is bankrupt.
