Obama Doubles-Down on False Dilemma

leave a comment »

As opposition against Obama’s proposed massive government takeover of health care grows, so does the sense of urgency on both sides of the debate.  It seems an all-too-familiar argument is popping up all over the place – appearing recently and most prominently in Obama’s carefully manufactured “Town Halls” on 8/11/09 and 8/14/09.  In essence, the argument goes:

“Opponents to the plan are trying to scare you.  What is truly scary is if we do nothing.”

… Wait … are those our only two choices?

Organizing for Big Government

Standing Together via the WhiteHouse.gov Website

(UPDATED 8/15/09 – More “grassroots” supporters of government-run health care are showing up with professionally printed Obama-campaign style placards.  Follow the gallery link below to view these images, as well as some screenshots of Craigslist ads paying as much as $16 an hour for people interested in “Working for Change”.  That’s right, paying people to go SELL government-run health care.  Unbelievable.)

Government Health Care Costs to be Paid Through “Efficiency” and Taxing “The Rich”

leave a comment »

During Obama’s “Town Hall” today in Montana, he explained that the estimated cost of his Government-run Health Care Plan ($90,000,000,000 per year) would be funded as such:

$60,000,000,000 ($60 billion) / year from savings through “efficiency.”

$30,000,000,000 ($30 billion) / year by reducing tax deductions taken by “the rich.”

Of course, if the costs of Government Run Healthcare turns out to be more expensive, what does this mean?  Keep in mind, Medicare has ultimately cost almost 10 times what was originally estimated.

Also, what does he mean when he says he will improve “efficiency”?  He mentioned cutting Medicare supplements, but isn’t that reducing people’s actual coverage?  In typical fashion, he’s used terms that are so vague they are open to any number of possible interpretations.  This has fueled one of the many concerns of those of us creating what Obama called a “ruckus” at recent Town Hall meetings.

Obama Debates Himself on Single Payer Universal Health Care

leave a comment »

This is a close debate, however it’s clear that he manages to defeat himself in the end.

Just to recap: He’s for a single payer universal plan, however he’s never said he was. There’s a difference between the two, but they are the same thing.

And that’s what he’s trying to say. A single payer universal healthcare plan. And that’s what he’s for.

Got it?

Ed Schultz: “They Want Obama to Get Shot”

Is it wise to insinuate that conservative talk show hosts favor presidential assassination?

Dangerous talk.

The Republic Reawakened

leave a comment »

Where are we heading as a country?  Who will be making the important decisions that directly affect our daily lives?  When did it become wrong for citizens to stand up and question their leaders in the public forum?  Why are we feeling as if our personal freedoms and liberties are in increasing danger?  What, if anything, can we do to stop it?  These are just some of the many questions Americans are beginning to ask themselves as their sense that “something just doesn’t feel right” grows stronger by the day.

Opposition to Single-Payer System Grows

leave a comment »

On Monday, 8/10/09, Rasmussen reported that 57% of Americans oppose the single-payer health care system being proposed by Obama, while only 32% are in favor of such a system.  Further 52% believe this will result in a lower quality of care, while only 13% believe quality of care would improve.

Why do our politicians continue working towards forcing this bill through the legislative process?  Why are Democrats and major media outlets portraying open civilian protest against this bill as being contrived and “fake”?  It is clear that the more people have time to read the bill (available in HTML and PDF download, with summaries of key issues), the more opposition grows.  There is little doubt that it is for this reason alone that attempts were made to pass the current bill in only 2-3 weeks’ time.  As more citizens begin to learn the truth about what is in this bill, one can only hope that opposition continues to strengthen in volume and intensity.

While our politicians don’t have time to read the bill, we obviously do … and we should.
