“One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine.”–Ronald Reagan
The full implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) coming soon body slams the health care industry, the American economy and our liberties.
“We need to know what’s ahead and more importantly what we can do to survive ObamaCare,” according to Grassfire Nation with their very informative booklet “Hidden Dangers of ObamaCare.” What you know about ObamaCare is bad. What you don’t know is far worse. Families are already paying 14% more or $2,000 more a year. That is just for starters, and it does not begin until 2014.
The words of Frederick Douglass, (a slave, who was taught to read, that ran away up north and became an aide to Pres. Lincoln) spoken to inspire resistance to slavery in the mid-19th century, apply equally well to us today: “power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what many people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong, which will be imposed upon them and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
As we know from the Supreme Court ruling it means a massive tax increase with 21 new taxes. The “death panels” will be stripping you of control over your own health care decisions. Massive job losses estimated at 80,000 over 10 years, are predicted. Doctors will leave their practices and retire early. There will be a massive shortage of doctors, and of ones who will accept Medicare or Medicaid.
This is the largest tax increase ever imposed on a society. It will be a real disaster for America’s health care system for the nation’s fiscal future and for a limited government. Every American–young and old–will be severely impacted.
It means ObamaCare, the most destructive piece of legislation ever passed by the Democrat Congress–yet most of the dangers are unknown. In reality it could well shorten your very life. Believe it or not we have enjoyed the most envious health care system with the best doctors, hospitals, researchers and care ever seen in the world. Repealing and removing this behemoth will require one of the hugest political fights in the history of our country.
Soon people will wake up when they can’t get the care they need or are used to. And where does it all lead? Liberals plan on it leading to National Health Care, controlled completely by the government. Not only your health, but your very life will be at stake. It will become a quagmire and there may be no return.
We have to know what’s in store, not only on the 2,700 initial pages that nobody who voted for it had ever read, but now the hundreds of thousands of new pages of quasi-government regulations written by mainly the Secretary of Health and Welfare and her staff. It will create billions for Unions who voted for Obama and liberals. Many unions and others who voted for Obama have already received special exemptions. It will hike all premiums, politicize medicine so you and your Dr. will no longer make decisions. There will be real “death panels” for the elderly and affirmed, assaulting our life and liberty, –a financial boondoggle mess.
