Obama Democrats Will 'Fix' Our Health Care System By Destroying It

Written by Andrea Lafferty


President Obama has failed in his attempt to pressure Congress into passing health care legislation by July 31st.  It took Obama six months to pick a dog for the White House, but he wanted Congress to rush through a massive overhaul of our health care system in just two weeks.

This legislation was on a fast-track until Americans began to call their legislators to complain about what is in the bill. The train to socialism has been slowed down due to citizen action! Now, Obama won't get a vote until September or even October! We have a chance to kill this legislation.

Citizens must confront their legislators at Town Hall meetings during the August recess!

On Wednesday, several Blue Dog Democrats announced a "compromise" agreement with Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Waxman regarding components of health "reform" legislation (H.R. 3200).  However, the broad outlines reveal few substantive changes to Democrats' government takeover of health care.

Four Blue Dogs reached an agreement with Rep. Henry Waxman to cut $100 billion from the $1 trillion dollar bill. As former Congressman Ernest Istook points out, there is little difference between saying you'll spent $900 billion instead of $1 trillion. It's still a wasteful program that will nationalize our health care system - and destroy it.

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) has also criticized the Blue Dog deal. He notes: "This 'deal' will increase health care costs for families, small businesses, and seniors, destroy jobs, and reduce access to quality health care.  It is a raw deal for the American people, and sadly, it proves once again that the so-called 'Blue Dogs' have no bite when they're forced to choose between their constituents and the radical leadership of their party. The Blue Dogs involved in the 'deal' agreed to keep a job-killing employer mandate and a job-killing small business tax, as well as provisions establishing a government czar to make medical decisions that should only be made by patients and their doctors, gutting Medicaid, and slashing Medicare for millions of seniors, particularly in rural America." 

As more and more Americans learn about what's in the Senate and House bills, the more angry they're becoming. They should be angry. Both bills (which are constantly changing), will totally destroy the best health care system in the world; undermine Medicaid and Medicare; push Americans out of their own health insurance plans into a government-run plan; fund abortion on demand and possibly even sex-change operations for transsexuals.

House Republicans recently offered a series of amendments in committee to the Nancy Pelosi version of Obama's socialist plan. It is instructive to see the common-sense amendments that were quickly rejected by the Democrat leadership.

Democrats rejected an amendment that would have required Members of Congress to enroll in the "public" health insurance plan that will be imposed on all Americans. They're willing to force all Americans - except themselves - into a socialized system!

They also rejected an amendment that requires Representatives to actually read the health care bill they're voting on! Such irresponsibility is unprecedented!

Bottom line: Democrat Representatives don't want to be enrolled in a socialized medicine system, but they want to force you into one. And, they don't even want to read the health care bill before they rush to pass it. 

Here's a sampling of the reasonable protections and safeguards for Americans that were rejected in committee:

Obamunists Reveal True Objectives

It is clear from these rejected amendments that President Obama and his socialist allies in Congress want a health care system that:

Only six months into office, President Obama and his allies in Congress have seized control of our financial institutions and the automobile industry. Now, they want to nationalize our health care system and bankrupt us in the process. Obamunism must be stopped!
