Good Morning, to my fellow residents of the "New" United Socialistic States of America. For those of you who went to bed before the news broke....the Democrats of our nation slammed through the National Health Care Bill. Many would be supporters are shouting and dancing in celebration at such a monumental victory. Thinking that this will HELP those less fortunate in our country who cannot afford health care, and you must never have known someone or been without health care to boo such a wonderful plan.
I thought St. Paddy's day was last Wednesday not today, quick check the calendar because the malarkey and baloney is flowing faster than the green beer was! I was once one of the "poor" who didn't have a lick of healthcare to save my soul. Even then with a plan like this I would have gladly told the government what they could use the paper they had so copiously used to spread their propaganda on for, toilet tissue anyone! This pile of garbage is just that, and it's going to create one hell of a stinking mess for all of us the longer we leave it sit around. Let me show you some general 'RED FLAGS.' And I can pretty much bet my blog won't cover all of them.
1. First and foremost this 'bill' wasn't required to gain the requisite Supermajority of votes required by our wonderful Constitution that was drafted and served us fairly well for over 250 years. Instead they call it a health care reform and manage to pass it with a 220-211 vote with not one single Republican voting yes and 34 Democrats taking no part in their parties little train wreck. Okay there is voting party lines and then there is the reality that the Dems couldn't convince 1 single solitary Republican that this was a good plan. Something there should scream....this is way more than party politics. And of course you have the brilliant Politian's such as my very own Representative from District 9 here in Washington State, Mr. Adam Smith who states to us his constituents, "it's a flawed and broken plan but it's a plan." Yeah I can't believe I voted for you, I won't be in the next election and if you run unopposed...... hell I'll run myself just to give people someone who will actually LISTEN to them and not have their vote purchased. You do not deserve your seat and I hope someone else out there steps up and kicks you out of it for the next election because if you are not going to help fix this nation then you are just part of the problem so move over.
2. Healthcare had to be piggybacked onto Federal Grant Reform, yeah so you couldn't make this stand up on its own. So you paired it with something that desperately needed to be reformed, since it's been in the stone age for decades.
3. You want to help those that currently don't have health insurance be able to attain quality affordable healthcare. Then why will you be fining anyone who doesn't have healthcare? You logic is a little flawed there. They are too poor to afford healthcare so now let's make it illegal to NOT have it. Yeah that's really cool, again this is where I would tell you to stick your plan.
4. We have over 11 million illegal immigrants known to be living in the US, who are not contributing to our tax base of revenue. Now Congress and Mr. President will you be scooping them up and sending them back to the countries they snuck in here from, or will we be paying out more tax dollars to care for them as well? Or is this plan strictly for LEGAL immigrants and then well they get out of paying those fines and they continue to suck at our economy don't they.
So other than making it so pre-existing conditions are guaranteed to be covered, which is about the only good thing I can find in your HR 4872. What exactly have you accomplished with this supposed great victory for change in America. The changes I see coming scare this blogger to thinking about what other country might just be better to live in when it all blows up here. I see the freedoms that made this country something amazing and a place that all Americans could take pride in, believe in, fight for and die for; quickly sliding down a slippery slope straight into socialism. Democracy the very foundation of this great nation is being eroded and our founders are probably trying to figure out how to come back to kick us out for screwing this place up so bad. I imagine if I were to go sit at any National Cemetery or the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, I would hear the tears of our fallen soldiers as they weep having given their lives to defend Democracy and Freedom only to see it dying. President Obama get a special tomb ready because I and millions of other Americans would like to mourn the death of Democracy.
I am not a Democrat or a Republican. I refuse to vote in my states Primary because I will not vote party lines or sign either Party's Oath. I am an American, I owe my allegiance to NO party, just my country, my fellow citizens, my friends, and my family. I will continue to vote based on the issues and beliefs on individual issues, I will vote for the person who can best do the job not the initial of the party they represent. I will vote for PEOPLE who want to make America strong, beautiful and vibrant once more. I will not vote for you if you are part of the problem. President Obama you spoke with such passion but you fail to execute on so many levels. I for one do NOT want your brand of change. I want an America where the American Dream still lives, "the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness." No one said they would just GIVE it to me......I always knew I would have to WORK for it. And finally some quotes from people smarter than I...........
I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.-- Thomas Jefferson
“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” - -Martin Luther King Jr.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. --C. S. LEWIS
We have learned to say that the good must be extended to all of society before it can be held secure by any one person or any one class. But we have not yet learned to add to that statement, that unless all [people] and all classes contribute to a good, we cannot even be sure that it is worth having. --JANE ADDAMS
