Anyone who follows my blog knows I have posted many articles and opinions along these lines. But we must not let this pass. What's the big deal?
First: This is not going to solve ANY problems that it has been advertised to fix. If we really want health care reform we need a solution that does not include more government involvement.
2nd: There has never been a federal government program that ran efficiently. I am not anti-government but they are not efficient and this would just be a huge pain in the neck for everyone! Ask anyone on Medicare or their family how it's working out?
3rd: This is becoming more about bailing out special interest groups who don't want to pay health care benefits--unions.
4th: Most citizens don't want this bill passed. I thought we paid the salaries of the government officials so why are they not listening to us?
5th: These congressmen and senators don't want this health care plan themselves so why make us have it?
6th:It's unconstitutional to force people to have health care programs they don't want--they will jail or fine you if you don't.
7th: It's unethical that some states are getting kick backs if their reps vote for the plan, buying votes with favors that is TOTALLY wrong.
8th: It will bankrupt our country, some say within 4 years (Massachusetts' Treasurer) some say less. Then we will have NO programs...
9th: It's fundamentally against all the principles upon which this country was founded.
So why does our President, Pelosi and Reid want this so bad? Power, control, payback...they owe some people BIG, they want to collapse the economy so they can takeover and show that capitalism doesn't work, they are stupid, they are evil...
I do not know why they are pushing this bill when we have close to 10% unemployment and a HUGE deficit our priority should be stimulating the economy through tax cuts and cutting spending. We are in prime condition if we stop this to stabilize by cutting spending and taxes to be seen as a good investment again and foreign countries and companies will come here to develop and invest. A bigger government is not productive to the economy.
Please pray for our country! Pray for our leaders to have the courage to stop this madness. If this passes we have little chance of getting rid of it and we WILL regret it!
