Obama’s speech last night was little other than lies and misinformation, artificial connections of “data points” with no basis in reality, used to push his agenda to push Universal Healthcare through. He basically said that if you’re not willing to talk to him about forwarding this agenda, that he’s not going to talk to you; The plan is going to go through… whether we want it to or not – don’t bother voicing your valid concerns about it to him – he’ll turn a deaf ear!
Was this supposed to be an introduction to a new healthcare plan? It didn’t seem to be the case to my ear! Obama still plans on forcing everybody into a plan – whether you want one or not. If you don’t want a plan, you’ll be taxed (up to $3,800 annually) and he’s still insisting on a Public Option (which despite his protests will lead employers to drop private insurance for their workers, and actually limits the Health care choices available instead of expanding them).
Instead of calling for tort reform, he announced plans to investigate it on an “experimental basis”. This (Tort reform) is a measure we can implement right now; something that will cost us Nothing and which would have an immediate impact on the overall cost of health care by giving the doctors a chance to actually practice medicine for the benefit of their patients instead of requiring all sorts of medical procedures to be performed in an attempt to cover themselves legally from malpractice suits. How many unnecessary tests have you had to take just so that your doctor can say “he did all the tests” and “there was nothing more he could have done” for any given diagnosis? When was the last time you went in with a mere cold, and ended up with a prescription – just to make you feel like the doctor did something and so you can’t sue him later?
Much of Obama’s speech was empty words and empty promises made – things we are expected to just take his word on, with nothing to back it up. Illegal immigrants won’t be covered under this insurance plan, he says. Although that may be the case on the surface, it wouldn’t take much legislation to make all those illegal immigrants legal residents or even citizens… who would then be eligible for the Universal Health Plan he has in mind.
Obama’s call of Moral Responsibility, while discussing his “close friendship” with Ted Kennedy was nothing more than an attempt to elicit emotion for the now-dead Senator and guilt among the masses for not supporting the Universal Healthcare idea that Senator Kennedy supported. Ted Kennedy… the murdering, philandering senator held up by Obama as a moral role model and reason to push Universal Healthcare through? What a joke!! Much like this plan… if it weren’t such a serious threat to our Freedoms and Rights and sense of personal, moral responsibility to ourselves and future generations.
