Have you heard that Obama’s administration is coming to Louisiana to hear your views on health care? No? Well they are, they just don’t want you to know about it, unless of course, you’re going to say how wonderful their plan is.
According to the White House press release, secretaries Kathleen Sebelius, Eric Shinseki, Hilda Solis and Tom Vilsack will be in Reserve, La to hear your views on health care as part of their strengthening of rural communities. This will be held Monday, July 20th, 2009 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Army National Guard Readiness Center 4120 West Airline Reserve, Louisiana. According to sources of Louisiana Conservative, the event is going to be publicized afterwards and the intentions is to make it seem as though Louisianians as well as rural Americans overwhelmingly support Obama’s health care plan by ensuring that opposing views are not present, therefor go unreported.
However, as Obama’s administration continues it’s attempt to ram health care through without transparency and much discussion, opponents are feverishly reading through the bill and finding many reasons to be highly concerned, not least of which the devastating impact on the economy that abolishing the right of the people to purchase health insurance of their choosing from a private insurer, and abolishing Health Savings Accounts. From Investor’s Business Daily:
“When we first saw the paragraph Tuesday, just after the 1,018-page document was released, we thought we surely must be misreading it. So we sought help from the House Ways and Means Committee.
“It turns out we were right: The provision would indeed outlaw individual private coverage.”
Now technically it is correct, you will be able to keep your existing coverage, you just won’t be able to change it, upgrade it, down grade it, switch companies, etc. You will be grandfathered with existing coverage, but from day one, your only option if you are unsatisfied with your health insurance is to go to the public option. Talk about a swooping big government totalitarian grab bag, they’re going for everything here.
And don’t think it’s by accident that this administration, and the Democrats included are trying to bring this economically devastating “reform” onto the American public. After all, this is the same party that has invested so much into being the party of the poor, obviously they benefit politically the more poor people that exist. Wouldn’t it be wonderful for the Democrats if 52% of the population were poor? And wouldn’t it even better if 95% of the population were poor? They’d never lose an election again since, after all, so many people would be dependent on their re-election. Or at least that’s they way it appears to be.
Do you really believe they haven’t thought of the economic devastation that would fall on America should this plan go through? The accountants, the agents, the underwriters… their jobs would vanish almost overnight. Secretaries and administrators would soon follow suit. The restaurants that feed these people who are constantly on the road would immediately feel the impact, as will the convenience stores that sell coffee and gas. Let’s not forget that offices would shut down as there would be no new business to be processed, leaving countless buildings unoccupied adding to the already existing excess of real estate being unmoved.
Each day that passes, it becomes more and more self-evident that we have a problem in America, that problem is called Barack Obama.
