Healthcare Lies

with 4 comments

I was watching Bloomberg this morning and one of the headlines stated that Obama wanted to put a stop to all of the lies concerning his healthcare plan.  Good idea, so if he wants to end the lies, all he needs to do is keep his mouth shut and the lies will stop.

Blue Dog Democrats

with 4 comments

bluedogWith all of the unrest in the country over Obamacare, I must applaud those few democrats who are standing up to Obama.  These blue dogs are caught between party politics and doing what is right for their districts and country.  Stay the course.

On another note, Rep Peter DeFazio of Oregon was at a town hall meeting claiming he didn’t vote for the stimulus plan.  Just so you have a point of refeence, he is left of Obama.  With a little digging, he voted for the stimulus plan in the house and no on the bill that made it out of conference.  His reasoning is that the conference bill gave too many tax breaks and reduced the amount of welfare.

Obamacare lies

with 3 comments

I learned, today that Obama is out publicly telling the nation that AARP has formally endorsed his healthcare plan.  The AARP denies they have endorsed the plan.  So, who is telling the truth?   Or stated differently, is Obama lieing again?

ObamaHealthCare(2)

 

Here is just one of many, many items that are found in the Obama Health Care Bill he is trying to get us to swallow.

On page 85 Line 7 HC Bill: Specifications of Benefit Levels for Plans. What this means is that the government has the ability to ration benefits. Image for a minute that you are an AARP member (retired) and need some treatment like bi-pass surgery. The surgery will extend your life by 10 years. The government sees you as a liability and denies you the surgery because you are no longer a productive member of society.  Their reasoning is that you are no longer working and contributing to the “coffers”.  Why waste good money keeping your mom or day alive? 

If I were a senior citizen, I would be questioning why I bought into all of those lies from Obama during the campaign and voted for him.

Please let me know your thoughts around the Obamacar bill.

Congress and Obama kill more jobs

leave a comment »

The recent increase in the minimum wage is a job killer. Most new jobs created in America are created by small business. Now with the cost of employment going up for the entry level positions, those business owners will think twice about hiring that extra employee. In fact, most are considering letting some employees go to because they can’t cover the additional costs.
