Obamacare Can Still Be Killed

Obamacare Can Still Be Killed
In pursuit of the truth – www.cinopsbegone.com – Tuesday, January 19, 2010

1.) The American people oppose Obamacare by almost 2 to 1 in the latest CNN poll. Other polls show lopsided opposition to passing either the Senate or House care bill

2.)The Democrats’ double-counting of Obamacare’s financial benefits has been exposed as a colossal lie. Harry Reid told the Senate that his bill strengthens our future by both “cutting our towering national deficit by as much as $1.3 trillion over the next 20 years” AND “strengthening Medicare and extending its life by nearly a decade.”
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) refuted that assertion. CBO said the claim that Obamacare would provide these benefits simultaneously “would essentially double-count a large share of those savings and thus overstate the improvement in the government’s fiscal position.”

3.) Obamacare is unconstitutional because of its mandate that all individuals must carry “approved” health insurance and all businesses must give health insurance to their employees whether or not the company can afford it. “Universal” coverage will be enforced by the Internal Revenue Service with power to punish those who don’t have such a plan.

4.) Since the Senate bill imposes sharp limits on health-insurance companies’ ability to raise fees or exclude coverage. It will likely force many of them out of business. Obamacare is unconstitutional because it violates the Bill of Rights protection against takings without just compensation and deprivation of property without due process of law.

5.) According to Robert Samuelson in the “Washington Post”, the “wild card is immigration.” From 1999 to 2008, 80 percent of the increase in the uninsured occurred among Hispanics, and Obama’s refusal to close our borders will make this problem more costly every year.

6.) Obama’s claim that “everybody” will now be covered creates few winners but lots of losers. Universal health insurance will be achieved by forcing young people to pay the additional costs (insurance for the youngest third of the population would rise by 35 percent), and by restricting and rationing care for the elderly.

7.) Other Obamacare provisions blatantly legislate racial and other forms of discrimination. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights sent two letters to the president and congressional leaders warning about the obnoxious requirements for racist and sexist quotas.

8.) Obamacare gives Medicare bureaucrats the power to ration health care by forcing doctors to prescribe cheaper medical devices and drugs…

9.) The Senate bill contains bribes: a) Sen. Mary Landrieu received $300 million increase in Medicaid funding for her state. (Louisiana). b) Sen. Ben Nelson --$100 million to give Nebraska a permanent exemption from costs of Medicaid Expansion.

10.) The Senate bill even has a four-page section artfully written to enable ACORN to get federal healthcare grants.
